When it arrives check the size. The ml is a smaller bottle, I ordered a 16oz bottle which is larger & more expensive, when it arrived it was the smaller ml bottle. I contacted the supplier & they tried to play daft, yeah! That worked😏 I eventually got a refund for the difference. The stuff is brilliant especially on black tubes (dubrus&#128077 I went on to buy a gallon container of the stuff.

The Autoglym stuff tyre dressing works well but does not stay on for ages. I was told to use it by a rib builder/ repairer if it was bad I don't think he would sell it. I have no doubt that acetone or mek would remove any residue left over. But as suggested do your research, we all have different boats and there is loads of different fabrics out there.

A few hypalon places say never use it so I went with them rightly or wrongly.

Sanding nor mek takes it off is what I read as I reasoned same thing.

Anyways, to each their own.

yes the stuff halfords (armor all) or whoever is silicon based, i would avoid it. shame as it is best finish i have ever seen on my tubes by miles.

i have got rib revive, rib shine, poly marine, hypatec, rib conditioner and ribright sitting in my shed and they range from poor to shockingly bad on black tubes, i don't know about orange though. if it helps last tango's tubes came up a treat with ribright and his are yellow, so probably okay with your orange.

i am going to order 303 myself as it is last one to try, if that doesn't shine i will need to live with it.
You'll be happy with 303...same sort of finish as Armourall... I've used both for a while now and 303 has the edge I'd say...although with the amount of wear patches I have....slip has never been a problem.
I use car shampoo then 303...wouldn't use washing up liquid on a regular basis...I've seen what it does to inch thick stainless storage silo's...when I was in the recycling/scrap game

Hypalon treatment?

Not trying to argue for the sake of argument just curious why the Autoglym stuff is supposed to be bad. Just read through its data sheet and it says it's water soluble. So I don't see why a cleaner would not take the stuff off? Only problem I see is that it will eventually come off when the boat is in the water.
Autoglym is a polymer silicone based product. Silicon should not be able to penetrate deeper into the rubber than the amount you sand down. Pretty sure air H2o molecules are smaller than silicone. What am I missing??

any protroleum or silicon based (autoglym) product is what the data sheets claim on various hypalon repair places, Google it yourself and see.

Again, I have no experience with it but I took the safe road and bought non silicon nor petroleum based protector, I.e the pukka stuff.

I thought the exact same as you and said ach it will sand off or mek but the problem is they end up in the fabric over time and make patching difficult is the claim.

Given a set of tubes in my case is about 8k and my boat is new-ish i took it all of within 24 hours.
