Introducing the First Ever HyperWax!
HydroSlick is unlike any product you’ve ever used before – it’s a new product that truly deserves its own category! A HyperWax combines the ease of use of a wax with the longevity, beading, slickness, and insane shine of a ceramic. HydroSlick uses the latest in SiO2 gel suspension technology to totally re-engineer the makeup of a ceramic coating and reinvent it as an extremely user-friendly and durable coating that anyone can apply. Oh ya did we mention it has no wax? HydroSlick is not a wax, it’s the first ever HyperWax!
Intense Crystalline Hyper-Shine
HydroSlick is a true ceramic coating formulated to deliver a crystal-like superior shine and incredible reflective finish, while still offering the similarity and customer familiarity of a wax! By filling in microscopic surface imperfections, HydroSlick creates a super smooth surface that reflects light back at you with unparalleled shine like only a true ceramic can. It’s so easy, you can apply as often as you want! Use HydroSlick alone as a standalone ceramic coating on untreated paint for year-round durable protection, or add it to HydroCharge or your favorite Chemical Guys ceramic coating to make the shine pop even more!
HydroSlick uses ceramic SiO2 nanotechnology to seal the pores of your car’s paint, creating a perfect layer where water behavior becomes highly and excessively active, resulting in rapid water acceleration off any treated surface. The durable shield helps protects against water spots, the elements, UV rays, and more for up to one year. Now, you can achieve intense ceramic water beading on your paint, glass, painted wheels, chrome, and headlights too! Throw out what you know about waxes: HydroSlick revolutionizes the industry by delivering a superior shine, wax-like ease of application, and the longevity and protection of a ceramic to create the ultimate hybrid product that offers the best of both worlds with none of the drawbacks!

What is a HyperWax?
There is no easy explanation when you invent something new, but stick with us and here we go! In order to define a category, Chemical Guys had to put innovation first by creating a new product that truly deserves its own category. Introducing HydroSlick Ceramic HyperWax: the first product with the ease of use of a wax combined with the longevity, beading, slickness, and insane shine of a ceramic! Oh ya, did we mention it has no wax? HydroSlick is not a wax, it’s a HyperWax! No compromise can be made in making a HyperWax, meaning that we had to start fresh with a new formula and an idea that had never been done before. We wanted to develop something truly unique and exceptional; a product unlike any other. We love the history and connection you get with a wax, the way it feels when you apply it, and the way it looks, but we also wanted so much more… Adding SiO2 to a wax just doesn’t work. The product just does not shine well or protect well. In order to improve the industry, you have to think outside the box. In our case, this required a new category in the industry! Enter the first-ever HyperWax, a product like you have never seen before that has no wax in it but applies like a wax, shines like crazy, and protects like a ceramic.
How is this different than HydroCharge?
HydroCharge is a Ceramic Spray Coating. HydroSlick is the first-ever HyperWax. Yes, that’s right: HyperWax! We listened to customers across the globe and in the interest of constantly innovating the industry and the category, we wanted to develop something truly unique and exceptional. The idea was to make a product that delivers a superior shine, applies like a wax, and delivers the longevity and protection of a ceramic. HydroSlick is a true ceramic coating just like HydroCharge, but this formulation is offered in a suspension gel for the first time ever, making it as easy to apply as a wax.
Where can HydroSlick be applied?
HydroSlick can be applied on glossy painted surfaces, glass, headlights, and chrome wheels.
Do I need to clay and polish first?
If you want a flawless finish, then we recommend claying and polishing first, however, you can still apply without claying and polishing and still get the incredible water beading properties!
Is HydroSlick layerable?
Yes, HydroSlick is layerable! You can apply as many layers as you want and as frequently as you want to improve the depth and reflection.
Is this just a wax with SiO2 added?
It is not just a wax with SiO2 added, it is a true ceramic coating engineered from the start as a ceramic coating in easy to use gel format. HydroSlick is the first-ever HyperWax.
Does HydroSlick contain carnauba?
It contains no carnauba, but is as easy to apply as a wax while delivering an even better shine and durability thanks to cutting edge HyperWax suspension gel technology.
Can I apply HydroSlick on top of HydroCharge?

Can I apply a glaze, sealant, and wax on top of HydroSlick?
Yes! You can apply your favorite Chemical Guys glazes, sealants, and waxes on top of HydroSlick! Just remember to HydroSlick first and wait 2 – 3 hours after applying HydroSlick.
