    Durability of Reload

    A couple guys on AG are saying that Reload has poor durability ( 7-10 days). I love and use Reload a lot, but have not done a durability test.

    Has anyone done one, as I would like to prove them wrong?

    I have applied Reload on both of our vehicles, one CQFinest and the other CQUK, and have seen it last thru the winter. Real world everyday use is the only testing I have done to be honest...
    I have also applied RELOAD on other vehicles as a stand alone prior to the winter and have had months of protection.

    What specifically is being said? What are the elements these vehicles are being exposed to? What are their maintenance routines? How are they applying it and are the surfaces prepped for a successful adherence?

    Sorry, other than that, I don't have much else to help you...

    Well, I got nothing for ya RS. I asked my buddy today, who is using Reload as a stand alone LSP, and he is pretty happy with the longevity.

    Not sure what to tell those folks...

    Here's another one: "Essence does play nice with sealants such as Ultimate Wax.. As far as using Essence topped with Reload, if you do that just make sure to top with Reload about every 7-10 days because it's longevity in regards to protection is really short."

    I believe this was posted on AGO by Eldo. I take what he says in terms of protection with a grain of salt. He's a good guy in person. But he lives and details in an industrial area where there is a refinery, train tracks and many big rigs passing through. He is always texting me or telling me that so and so LSP doesn't last. It is all due to the high contaminated area he is in and he knows it. Thus he always mentions about the baggie test. Of course he is going to have contamination build up sooner than most. Just look at his recent post about Meg's UFF as another example. I was waiting for him to make a post that it does not work which he did.

    I am a few miles closer to the beach then where he is and Reload works just fine and lasts longer than a week. Same goes for any LSP that I have used. Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks for sharing that Guz. The parking lot at work butts up with the Northeast Corridor rail line. Trains run 24/7 and my truck sees a lot of rail fallout fwiw.

    I only apply Reload to surfaces that have been atleast clayed. It works amazing and it is very durable for 6 months easily when vehicle is regularly washed with a gentle deep cleansing shampoo such as Reset. It holds up great in the canadian winter months.
