Aerospace vs The Rest: Which is Best?
On this blog and Cool Rides Online®, we’ve written extensively about the many uses for Aerospace, from extending the life of your vehicle to making wheels shine. The uses for this one product are virtually endless, which might make you ask:
When should you use Aerospace and when should you go with another brand?
While the answer depends partly on personal preference and what you’re trying to accomplish, here are a few facts to consider:
- Aerospace Protectant is a water-based dressing that’s safe for vinyl, plastics, rubber and treated leather.
- Because it’s not oily or greasy, Aerospace can be used on virtually any surface. (Many of our customers buy it by the gallon for this very reason).
- UV stabilizers in Aerospace reduce fading, yellowing and sun damage (hence the term “SPF 40 for your stuff.”)
- West Marine, Coleman and Sunbrella all recommend Aerospace, as do dozens of other auto and boat manufacturers.
How is Aerospace Protectant different from other leading brands?

We’ve seen first-hand how Aerospace produces very different results compared with other commonly-used automotive protectants and tire dressings. Here’s what we’ve found: The following is intended for a two-column layout:
