    We started shipping to our retailers two weeks ago, so it should start showing up at your favorite place to shop very soon. Here is the description from our welcome page:

    Hydro has been a very popular product for us here at Prima. It's easy to understand why, it is so simple to use, won't stain trim and looks fantastic. We kept those properties in mind when we put together our two newest products; Prima Hydro Seal and Prima Hydro Wash.

    Hydro Seal takes all the strengths of Hydro, then amps them up with significant protection and huge durability. What does that mean?

    Well, it's simple to use, won't stain trim, looks fantastic AND easily lasts six months. We have sealant durability in a wax that you can apply with one hand and immediately remove with the other. If you bump your trim, it will actually dress it a bit-then bead water when it gets wet. The look is rich, glossy with what can be described as an "organic" luster.

    Hydro Wash was designed specifically to compliment Hydro Seal. They work together to repel and remove dirt from your protected surfaces. They're like twins with one pushing and one pulling. Hydro Wash knows exactly what makes up Hydro Seal, so it removes from the surface everything but Hydro Seal. This gives you a super-clean surface while maximizing longevity.

    Once you are protected with Hydro Seal, you can still reach for your old reliable friend, "Original Hydro." It works the same way over Hydro Seal, and with Hydro Wash. The family has grown, yet the spirit holds true. We hope you'll give them a try.

    I am looking forward to trying the new system. I especially like the idea of not having to tape up the trim. Will Swirl cause trim to turn white? I do not see a listing for Amigo any longer. That stuff always makes my cars look great. Have you discontinued it?

    Swirl can leave a mark, but it won't stain. A little water will clean it up.

    We still sell Amigo. It is just out of stock until next week. Most of our retailers should have it on the shelves, which is why we don't. :)

    How does Hydro Seal perform over a base coat of Epic?

    It works like a champ over Epic. It will even install over Hydro. The only downside to installing over Epic, is you won't get a "pure" impression of the look.

    Heather,

    Sounds like another killer product

    If I'm reading correctly that this would basically be the last step after doing paint correction with Swirl and Amigo and waxing with Epic and/or other Carnauba based waxes?

    Thank, so far, users have liked it.

    Not really. It is an actual sealant. No need to apply it over Epic. Since it is a sealant, you may not get a good bond over your carnauba.

    I guess I always thought that Mystique was already optimized for polymer finishes. Can you expound a little on the differences between Mystique and Hydro Wash?

    So this replaces wax?

    And it can go on after Amigo?

    Say goodbye to Banana Gloss!

    last weekend, I cleaned up my Mini with Swirl, then applied the new Hydro Seal. Looks fantastic.

    Can you put a Carnauba Wax on top of the sealant?

    It's a sealant, so it is a wax. So yes, it could be your last step.
    Yes, it can follow Amigo.

    Yes, a traditional carnauba and even Banana Gloss. You can also layer Hydro Seal for greater effect.
