POLISHANGEL Supersport PTFE Wheel Coating
SUPERSPORT | spray wheel coating is an easy-to-use wheel coating for all types of wheel finishes. SUPERSPORT is designed as a quick top up to previous protection or, also, as a standalone protection product. SUPERSPORT, like all of POLISHANGEL's spray protection, can be applied to a wet or dry surface. The heat-resistant wheel coating contains a unique combination polytetrafluoroethene (PTFE) & titanium oxide (TiO2> +35%), opposes any chemicals, rust, tar and salts. Durability is 4-6 Months.
Here at ESOTERIC, we prefer to use POLISHANGEL Supersport to maintain our coated wheels, or as a standalone protectant on non-coated wheels. In either application, it is very easy to use and provides a nice finish.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
The application is extremely easy! Can be applied to dry or wet surfaces!

Despite having wheels coated in both Gyeon Rim and Kamikaze, I wanted to give the SuperSport ‘coating’ a try as it seems most every Polish Angel product I have tried results in a very pleasing experience. After using SuperSport, the trend continues with respect to both functionality and appearance.
As they note it is a ‘PTFE’ product, figured it was worthwhile to look into that some more as I wasn’t really sure what that meant. Basically, turns out to be the stuff that’s in Teflon (in some form) so non-stick has to be a winner in this type of product. As one site noted:
“Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is a synthetic fluoropolymer of tetrafluoroethylene. Being hydrophobic, non-wetting, high density and resistant to high temperatures, PTFE is an incredibly versatile material with a wide variety of applications, though it's perhaps best-known for its non-stick properties.”
Well, not that I totally understand it but it sure sounds like good properties for a wheel coating.
Initially I applied to a set of painted/clearcoated rims which also have sections of clearcoated aluminum (I’m guessing). Easily and quickly applied, the SuperSport added a nice gloss to the black painted sections and gave a *very* nice luster to the aluminum sections; it seemed to add a very slight and pleasing ‘prism’ effect when light catches it at the right angle. These rims had been coated with Kamikaze Stance about 14 months/24k miles or so ago and while holding up very well, the SuperSport added a further, aesthetically pleasing dimension to the overall appearance. After driving through rain and such, the wheels stayed cleaner than could be normally expected and a shot with a pressure washer was pretty much all that was needed to restore them to ‘just applied’ appearance.
I next gave it a shot on a set of chrome reproduction wheels that had been coated with Gyeon Rim about 24 months/12k miles ago. These wheels were beginning to show signs of the coating fading and after a good cleaning with Sonax Wheel Cleaner Plus and Gyeon Prep, the SuperSPort was a breeze to apply and remove. Afterwards, the chrome was not only bright but also seemed to have a bit more ‘character’ to its look. Chrome can be somewhat one-dimensional and the SuperSport seemed to add a little more reflectivity and depth to the otherwise ‘blingy’ look.
Just for grins, I decided to use it on some highly polished stainless-steel exhaust tips that I had polished a week or 3 ago with Polish Angel Palladium. The result was excellent; it improved the overall deepness and luster of the tips, adding what seemed to be a very, very thin layer of extra gloss/shine that had not been there before. It was quite possibly more pleasing than the look it lent to the rims.
Like most Polish Angel products, ease of use is incredible and the looks have just a little something extra, that ‘Polish Angel look’ that, while being hard to describe, never disappoints. We’ll see how the durability is going forward but being so easy and enjoyable to use, I’m not too concerned.
very easy to use. brings out a finer luster on my chrome wheels. wheels clean up much much better. I am happy with the product.
