TopCoat F11 REVIEW
Today I’m sharing my honest review TopCoat F11, one of the first detailing sprays I used on my own car. If you’re into detailing and ceramic sprays, I’m sure you’ve heard of F11. They are a market leader in detailing sprays, and have their ads plastered all over social media. But does the product really live up to the hype?
In this review I’ll go over the effectiveness of the product, how it works on different surfaces, and whether or not TopCoat F11 is a good value. But first, I want to clear something up...
What Kind of Product Is TopCoat F11?
There is a lot of misinformation on the internet about what kind of product TopCoat F11 really is. They promote themselves as a ceramic protection spray, but that’s not really true. TopCoat F11 is really a detailing spray, that is good for wiping and shining your vehicle. It does not provide any level of protection from water, bugs, salt, dirt, or UV light.
In my other reviews, I’ve explained that all ceramic coating products contain silicon dioxide (SiO2), which is the molecule that repels water and protects your vehicle from the elements. Most ceramic products contain around 3-5% SiO2, while one even contains 13%! Unfortunately, TopCoat F11 does not contain any SiO2. That means it is not at all effective for protecting your surface from contaminants.
TopCoat F11 is Lying to Customers...
They’ve even made some ridiculous claims in their social media ads like “You’ll Never Wash Your Car Again!”
...Really? They think that using TopCoat F11 will make it so that I never have to wash my car ever again? I hate being lied to by advertisers, so I was very annoyed when I saw this advertisement a couple weeks ago.
So What is TopCoat F11 Good For?
In my experience, F11 does a good job of removing bug splatter from my front bumper. It also provides a nice shine if you’re going to a car show and need to gloss up your ride before you head in. Just don’t expect F11 to provide a protective ceramic layer like other products such as NexGen Ceramic Spray or Torque Detail.
As much as I’m annoyed with TopCoat F11 and their misleading advertisements, I try to be completely fair and honest in my reviews. I will say that one good side of Topcoat F11 is their customer service. If you have any problems at all with your product, you’ll speak to a good representative from the USA.
Is Topcoat F11 A Good Value?
The answer to this question is a definite no. TopCoat F11 sells for $59.97 for a single bottle, more than 3x the cost of better products - including our #1 ranked product, NexGen Ceramic Spray. Not only is TopCoat F11 insanely more expensive than their competitors, but it doesn’t provide any protection for your vehicle. It’s simply a shining and detailing product. I would much rather spend $19.95 on a product like NexGen Ceramic Spray, which provides a similar shine to your vehicle, while protecting the surface with its 13% SiO2 formula.
