High Praises for Polli Glow

I have a 2018 Windsport always out in the Florida Sunshine. The fiberglass has become very chauky and blotchy despite having it detailed twice a year. I have tryed dozens of cleaners, polishes waxes and sealers, it looks great for about 6 months.
Today I tryed a product called Polli Glow. With very little work the RV looks bran new. If anyone else has tryed this please chime in. Now that the product is on it does need to be reapplied every year, and thats alot easier then doing the buffing thing and then waxing.

I used it on my sailboat for 4 years. Yes it requires once a year application. recoat is only one coat each year. First time was 4 coats as I recall. Easy to do.

RV shine

I have been using Mothers CMX Ceramic Spray for about a year on our Axis. It is very easy to apply if you follow the instructions. The water is still beading on it but initially it would sheet off and not bead, which after watching a couple of videos, is what should happen. Once the weather warms up enough I'll coat it again. It can also be applied to the windows, which I did, but not the windshield. I use Rainex washer fluid which I find is great at sheeting water off the windshield. But, to each his own.

Thanks for the "Poli-Glow tip"!
It looks as if I'll have some time this Summer to give it a try.

I used Poli-Glo on my first Class A about 12 years ago because I had tried everything else and wasn't satisfied. The proper application took a while to go through all the steps. (I had to buy the powder cleaner to get rid of the rust. The final outcome was a nice sheen that lasted about a year. I only used it on the end caps. The following year when i was getting ready to sell it, I called in a guy to detail the coach and he made the mistake of trying to buff those areas. Can't do it! I had to re-prep and re-apply the Poli Glo again after he finished the rest of the coach. If it isn't applied evenly and stays in the sun, the product will have a tendancy to peel. Got to stay on top of it! Otherwise, I liked the results.

Did you buy a whole kit that I see advertised or just the polish/wax. I'm looking for something. Bought into Maguires polish wax 67 and it's too harsh for me....even without a buffer. Where did you buy, Amazon?
Also, does it really hold up? I'm in the FL sun too and haven't found anything that will hold up to the sun and rain.

Poli Glow revisited

Search the forums for more info on prep and Poli Glow, as this discussion has come up before. I used it on my boat over 15 years ago, and that version did peel; the newer formulation (came out around 8 years ago I think) does not peel. I have used the newer version on my RV's since it came out. First ever application should be around 6 coats; then annual renewal of 2 or 3 coats. Manufacturer (located down here in South Florida) does not recommend application to fiberglass RV until it is 1 year old or more, as new units have surface that is too smooth for good adherence. Good luck.

I used F11 last year for the first time. Used again last week with their poly wash. WOW. Impressed and definitely discarding everything else I’ve collected.

It would be interesting to see some of these products compared side by side apples to apples.

Most of them have the very same ingredients when you look at the SDS

Different actives of course and prices are all over the place

For the money Lucas and Aerorspace along with Meguires seem to have fairly concentrated products. I tend to use primarily Aerospace and have used Lucas plus several other name brand synthetics but sure none to write home about

Did you use a cleaner before using the Poly or did you apply it right on the chalky finish?

The kit comes with applicators and primer. If the surface is also porous and stained, they have a different prep powder that should be purchased. (Sorry that I don't remember the name of it) It also removes any chalking from the surface.

Just looked it up. It's called Poli Ox ( for oxidation, I guess!)

Brakeman48, I bought the kit, it comes with the cleaner, applicator, and finish product. It is made right here in Florida, and its POLY GLOW not poli ox.

Ron1Z, Poli Ox is the name of the powdered cleanser that is used for rust stains and heavy oxidation. It is part of the DELUXE kit or can be purchased separately. You are correct about the name of the overall Poli Glow brand and yes, you are correct that it is a Florida product (actually made in Fort Pierce)!
Interesting to me that the Poli Glow liquid kind of smells like Johnsons Floor Wax or some of those paver sealer products!
