Good Day!

I was wondering if anybody here has tried 22PLE?

I've been a dedicated and loyal Zaino fan for more years than I care to count. But this new product is interesting to me. My Imperial Blue F30 328i seems to require frequent paint correction and I was thinking of trying this product. I guess I am just getting old and lazy so the promise of 22PLE is appealing to me.

As an aside I have read a lot about many of the other golden children of the detailing world and really just want to focus on this particular product please. There is tons of feedback about the others and I have considered them.

Any feedback on 22PLE would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I'm not sure about it, but esoteric detail has a pretty good guy that runs/details and he knows his stuff inside and out. I'd give em a call to ask more.

22ple Glass Coatings (https://detailersdomain.com/22PLE_c_239.html) is a great product we are now a dealer of it. I have had it on my car for just about 24 months now. I was one of the earlier beta testers in the USA.

I'll have a few write ups shortly with the product on various cars.

Thanks for the feedback folks. I have been doing a ton of research on this product and am interested in trying it. After seeing the pictures of this stuff drying in a plastic cup to become a hard, clear disc, it makes me wonder...what happens with rocks and debris flying up and hitting the front of the car? This product cures into a glass coating - so when things hit glass, it chips and/or shatters. How does this stuff perform in the real world with road debris?

Thanks again!

it will not crack or chip I have been testing the 22ple for just about over a year and it doesn't have that effect, its been on one of my cars for just about 1 1/2 years and I have not experienced that.

Thanks Phil! I am looking forward to trying this product out myself.

One of the reviewers from the UK commented that it is more prone to water spotting than mineral based finishes. He recommends using a quick detailer over the 22PLE. Any thoughts on how the Zaino products will work and play with 22PLE?

I would suggest to put something over the 22ple because it is prone to water spotting.

I have not used Zaino over it.

a couple of cars we recently applied 22ple on.

2012 Lexus GS350 F Sport with 22ple (http://www.detailingbliss.com/forum/pro-studio/36088-detailers-domain-12-lexus-gs350-f-sport-22ple-vx1-pro-glass-coating-2nd-time-around.html)

Because it saves a lot of time, I'm a die-hard fan of Klasse All-in-One (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php?id=12368&url=detailedimage.com/Klasse-M6/All-In-One-AIO-P54/500-ml-S1/). Works well on paint, wheels, plastics, glass, etc. I use it on the windows after washing/drying, and it removes hard-water spots and leaves the glass super clean. No streaking, spotting, etc.

Otherwise I'll spend a 1/2 hour thoroughly cleaning the class inside and out with Stoners or Einzsett 1Z, (http://www.detailedimage.com/wax.php?id=12368&url=detailedimage.com/Einszett-1Z-M46/Windscreen-Clear-Concentrate-Glass-Cleaner-P499/500ml-S1/) only to find hard water spots and/or streaking. Nowadays, I'll clean the glass with Einszett, but seal with Klasse to ensure super clear windows and great beading.
