Question PPS Patented Paint Sealant

Hello Everyone.
I am told to consider using this paint protection system on the exterior of our trailer. I am told that it helps keep your vehicle looking new and reduce clean-up time while protecting your trailer from fading, bug and bird damage etc.

My question - Has anyone tried this and have have you found it to work?

I have it on my X19H. Four summers now. Love It. I don't have to wax, hardly ever have to wash the trailer, marks come off with a damp cloth and trailer looks brand new. I give the trailer a good bath before putting away for the season but other than that I can just use a damp rag and give it a quick bath with no soap if needed. Most of the time the rain just washes it completely clean. Even the bugs on the front at the end of a trip just rinse away with a quick hose down no scrubbing or soap : )

I do not regret this and would do it on the next trailer.


I am just around the bend from you in Milton, Ontario ...

That stuff would never hold up in Southern Arizona, so we never considered it.

Why do you believe it would never hold up?

This is the stuff and what it does. I have this on my truck.
Element 119's origin began in Connecticut back in 2010 as a specialty coating R&D company specializing in the aerospace industry. Coatings were developed for the likes of Sikorsky, Bombardier, as well as predominant airlines internationally.

Clients of this caliber demanded cutting edge innovations for the unique challenges they faced, which we were sure to deliver. One of these challenges was Sikorsky's requirement for an easy to clean, hand applied coating to protect paintwork around helicopter exhaust ports. All other solutions would melt off during the first flight, leaving the paint to become fouled by the exhaust.
We were asked to create a coating that would withstand temps in excess of 1000 degrees, while adding gloss and long term protection in the harshest environments. System X was developed for this purpose, and performed well beyond expectations.
Seven+ years and billions of dollars in protected vehicles later Element 119 is now represented in 20 countries and counting. We owe our success to our close relationships with System X distribution and installation partners. We remain true to our mission, focused on delivering the best, most efficient, longest lasting coating technology on the planet. All of our ceramic coatings are manufactured at our facility in Thomaston, CT USA to the absolute highest quality standards.

I paid $672 CDN in 2014 and like I said in earlier post I do not regret it.

Trailer is outside yearround and looks brand new. I realized the first year how much I love the stuff after a trip when the front cap was competely covered in squashed bugs. I didn't have time to deal with that for a few days. The first few days was hot and on the fourth day it rained. Went back to clean the trailer and discovered all the bugs were washed away by the rain.

Just use a wet rag every couple of trips to tidy it up ... black streaks just wipe off with water or a good rainstorm.

And no waxing. : )

I'm still curious why you think it wouldn't hold up here.
