What is MycroGlide® Technology and How Does It Work?

There are many innovative technologies that go into detailing and sealant products that make them stand out above inferior products. While there are many technical terms that describe certain technologies in products like TopCoat® F11® and TopCoat® F11PRO, knowing what they do will help you understand how a product functions and provide a better understanding of its long-lasting benefits that ultimately help protect and keep surfaces clean for a long time.

One technology that’s proprietary to TopCoat® and formulated into TopCoat® F11® and TopCoat® F11PRO® is MycroGlide® technology. MycroGlide® technology is a unique infused technology that is designed to significantly reduce the coefficient of friction. Fundamentally, MycroGlide® technology provides a slick surface that prevents contaminants from the elements like dirt, grime, and debris from sticking to a surface.

What Issue Does MycroGlide® Technology Solve?

When you use a detailing or sealant product there are elements of the product that should reduce surface tension to leave behind a non-stick surface. The fundamentals are rather simple - if a surface has a lot of tension or resistance then it is susceptible to collecting dirt and debris. MycroGlide® technology solves this issue by significantly reducing surface tension or resistance, which reduces the coefficient of friction. Even though certain products claim to be hydrophobic to ward off water, they may increase surface tension causing them to collect dirt and grime over time. Such inferior products may add hydrophobicity but simply fail to reduce surface drag causing the surface to collect other unwelcome elements.

Have you ever placed a plastic bottle on your vehicle’s hood, and it didn’t slide off until you cleaned the surface and applied either car wax or sealant product? Or, after coating a vehicle, did the surface feel smooth or slick to your touch? Well, MycroGlide® technology is groundbreaking in that it offers better protection and weathering properties to shield a coated surface from the elements leaving a smooth-to-the-touch surface.

If a detailing or sealant product does not reduce surface tension or resistance, it is a complete waste of your time! It’s a simple law of physics – elements stick to surfaces that have high resistance or tension and by reducing both you will help ward off unwanted elements leaving behind a slick surface that stays cleaner longer.

The Benefits of MycroGlide® Technology Go the Distance to Help Protect a Variety of Surfaces

Did you know that some inferior detailing products and sealants may add surface tension thus increasing the coefficient of friction? Even some ceramic coatings have a high coefficient of friction causing unwanted elements and containments to stick to a surface thus etching into the coating and causing unwanted damage. You never want to cause unnecessary damage to a surface when you’re detailing a car, boat, RV, motorcycle, or any other precious investment! MycroGlide® technology will ensure that surface tension is reduced to create a slick treated surface that helps resist the bonding of unwanted elements.

As a proprietary TopCoat® technology, MycroGlide® tech helps create a durable and resilient barrier against elements when you use a product that’s infused with MycroGlide® technology like TopCoat® F11® or TopCoat® F11PRO®. Best of all, MycroGlide® technology is formulated as part of an eco-friendly, water-based product in TopCoat® F11® and TopCoat® F11PRO®.
