After the Gtechniq C3 Smart Carnauba review, I decided to start a series of Gtechniq product reviews. So, the most logical place to start would be at the bottom of the coating line. Gtechniq C1.5 Silo (“see-low”) Seal is a versatile product that can coat nearly any surface with a layerable quartz based sealant. At first, I did not think much of Silo Seal. Gtechniq included it with the C1 coating as a sort of maintenance product. I figured I didn’t need it because I was using EXO on top of C1. However, Silo Seal is now getting a great detail of use away from C1 & EXO. With a durability of up to 6 months, it has become essential in my protection arsenal.
Using Gtechniq C1.5 Silo Seal
A little goes a long way with Silo Seal. Just a couple of sprays coated nearly half the hood of this Volkswagen Cabrio. I apply with a microfiber applicator pad and then remove the residue with a clean microfiber cloth. If you oversaturate Silo Seal on the applicator, the residue may become harder to remove. After a ten minute cure period, you can add a second coat to increase the gloss.
One of my favorite things about Silo Seal is that you can coat any exterior surface of the vehicle, including trim and windows which will give the car a beautiful consistent look. Another great benefit of Silo Seal is its ability to keep a car cleaner longer. A friend of mine had is Volvo coated with Silo Seal and was amazed that, with his long commute to work, his car was able to stay clean for nearly a week!! Typically his car would be dirty in just a couple of days. He also loved the exceptional water beading and glossy look. And how does Silo Seal look? Exceptional!! Because of the price, ease of use, gloss and self-cleaning abilities it is now the included coating in nearly all of my services!
In this review I used the old version of Silo Seal, Gtechniq now has a Version 2 of Silo Seal that has improved slickness among other improvements!
