EXOv5 Ultra Durable Hydrophobic Coating - Case
EXOv5 delivers a hard film that makes water-spots easy to remove, offers great resistance to all wash chemicals and can help withstand micro-marring. It produces a high-gloss, warm-looking, extreme hydrophobic finish.
EXO delivers a consistent film that is more durable and resistant to road salt and wash chemicals than its predecessors. Application is easy, with a slow flash-off time, giving more time to achieve a perfect finish.
All of the above combined with the introduction of a good degree of swirl resistance means EXOv5 represents a major leap forward in Last Surface Protection (LSP) technology.

Good To Know
- When applying over a ceramic coating (C1 Crystal Lacquer): EXOv5 should be applied more than 2 hours but less than 12 hours after you finish the C1 application.
- When applying over CSL, EXOv5 can either be applied immediately after you have finished or up to 24 hours after completing application of CSL.
- If you are applying immediately after CSL application, make sure you are starting the process at the same place you did with CSL and following the same order of panels.
- In addition to this kit you will need at least two but ideally four quality Edgeless 300, Edgeless 365 or Pearl towels from The Rag Company.
- Ensure that your vehicle is out of direct sunlight but warmer than 5 degrees Celsius, is completely dry, and will stay dry for at least 12 hours after application.
- If needed, polish your paintwork either by machine or by hand to remove any imperfections.
Wipe down all surfaces using Gtechniq Panel Wipe and a quality Edgeless 300, Edgeless 365 or Pearl towel from The Rag Company (apply the Panel Wipe to the cloth and buff - not directly to the panel) – if you are applying over newly applied C1 or CSL, this step is not required
- Put on the nitrile gloves provided.
- Drop between 5 and 10 drops of EXOv5 onto the applicator provided. Work the liquid into the pad to get an even saturation.
- Apply in overlapping strokes to an area roughly 2’ x 2’ (60x60cm), or work to the bodylines of the vehicle.
- If the surface of the vehicle is between 40 and 60 degrees Fahrenheit, wait for two minutes If the surface is between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit wait for one minute and for temperatures above this, remove immediately.
- Fold your first microfiber towel twice to form a square, spread and remove most of the residue using a light touch.
- With your second folded microfiber cloth remove all remaining residues. We advise to move your head so that you get direct and oblique views of your finish to spot all residue. It is also advisable to use bright, but flat lighting, to make residue spotting easier.
You will find that your vehicle is significantly easier to clean and whilst EXOv5 has significantly better resistance to caustic wash chemicals these chemicals will shorten the lifespan of any coating and are not recommended as part of your care routine.
EXOv5 can be overcoated with other products, but if this is done you will get the surface performance of the product you overcoat it with and not EXOv5.
An unopened bottle of EXOv5 has a 12-month shelf life from the time of purchase.
