Based on your and @OkSlim 's experience, I conclude that frequent reapplication removes or "washes off" the previous film before it has a chance to degrade into the white film I observed. In other words, Aerospace Protectant is likely soluble in itself, and on re-application, re-liquifies any residual ingredients and adds fresh petroleum base, keeping it constantly fresh.

I made only one application to a new vehicle, and after years of inattention and no further detailing, a white film gradually formed. Removal required vigorous rubbing, as I recall with 50/50 alcohol in water solution. This method wasn't efficient; the white film was still resilient and "rolled" up into tiny balls before being wiped off. I didn't try simply reapplying the AP. I might have been a little panicked and just trying to restore the new look to my vinyl and rubber. When I saw the process was working, I just plowed ahead until the task was done. The new look WAS still there, apparently untouched by ten years of UV and ozone.

I absolutely endorse the product, but continuing maintenance will be required, as should be expected.
