    You guys should check out the turtle wax ice shine n seal. This stuff lasts months and people have been having excellent results with their cars.

    I'm sure it's awesome for vehicles. But I can't be sure of it's longterm effect on CM Tec finishes on the new 2018/2019 skis. We are no longer cleaning gel coat, it seems like the entire ski is now advanced plastics and acrylic. This requires more than the average cleaning supplies to be done properly, which is largely the purpose of this post as I have tons of experience with gel coat and clearcoat. But Acrylic/Plastic is a completely new animal altogether for me. Plexus seems like an interesting angle. I ordered 2 cans to experiment with. I was expecting to see more people using longterm ceramic coatings, but to my surprise, it seems most of the flash dry ingredients in those are banned products. Pretty much anything carnauba is out due to hazing plastics. Most sealants are out based on their interaction with acrylic. What about the XPS cleaner that comes in a spray can? It hurts me to even type some of this. Cleaning my ski with a can.....what has this world come to.....Does anyone have a wash that is for sure approved?😂

    This is not related to cleaning the ski, but somewhat related.
    I really like liquid rollers and wondering if there is any issues using liquid rollers with the CMTech. It states "Plastic Safe Yes"

    I would say no. Lots of petroleum products included in that, which are discouraged.

    Liquid Rollers is a spray product which is applied to the dry trailer bunks, not to the watercraft. It applies a ‘dry’ silicone powder lubricant to the bunk carpet, reducing friction when sliding the hull on and off the trailer.

    The product dries on the bunks before the ski is loaded back onto the trailer.

    Whatever solvents are in the product should be evaporated before the hull contacts the treated bunks.

    That makes sense!

    I wonder if an APC kind of cleaner would do the job....Like 303 Multi Purpose Cleaner, or Chemical Guys Nonsense.

    Edit: 303 won't work. It's an alcohol base.

    I also see it says Plastic Safe Yes.
    I already sprayed the bunks and ski has been on trailer for a week. Guess I'll pull it off and look at it. Hopefully it's OK.

    I used lacquer thinner to remove the glue after removing the warning decals and saw no issues doing so. Maybe it's more resilient than we think?

    Pulled the ski almost all the way off the trailer, looked at entire bottom, and all is fine. So liquid rollers seems ok. I put my ski on trailer while wet, but just make sure it dries first to be safe.
