Glaze under Moonlight.

Hi Guys,

Currently own a VW Touran in shadow blue (dark/navy blue). This being the daily driver and open to all elements at all times I would like to protect it as much as possible.

Over the Christmas break I am planning to give it a single stage paint correction using Scholl S20 Black and then seal it with Tac systems Moonlight.

Can I use a glaze (just for extra depth and clarity) prior to applying Moonlight? Or will this cause a problem with Moonlight adhering to the paint properly.

No you won't be able to glaze. Moonlight needs to be treated like a coating so best results would be to panel wipe after polishing before applying moonlight.

Any LSP you're applying with a view to it lasting a long time needs to be applied directly to bare paint, ideally that's been recently machine polished (tick!) and panel wiped.

Glazes are for looks, not durability.

As above says, no glaze under Moonlight.

However you could add a wax on top of Moonlight after it has cured, maybe adds some depth. But more so I think the wax will take away the good properties from Moonlight.

You could use a primer polish like Carpro Essence to add gloss and fill a bit before applying Moonlight.
But really if you are gonna polish it with S20 Black you shouldnt really need a glaze.

If using Moonlight might be best to use the TAC Systems equivalent.

It would be interesting to know if they are actually one and the same product. We know re-labelling does take place, as in many industries, so I often wonder which are identical products re-branded.

Thanks guys, i'll go with the polishing & Moonlight straight after approach. And then maybe wax on top once cured.

You should not use any glaze under moonlight.
Carpro essence has fillers so is glaze like but is the only one that is suitable. TAC has Total One Essential which is like a correct and protect product but it has no fillers, again is suitable.

I know a few Korean companies that do not manufacture but Carpro are a manufacturer as are TAC. There are similarities in alot of the products but this is the case with many brands out there. Carpro don't rebottle TAC and TAC don't rebottle carpro. Just want to clear that one up.
