Which glass sealant is best to apply in Winter?

The one thing missing from my detailing products is a glass sealant. I'm very happy with AG Car Glass Polish to get the exterior glass nice and clean. But I don't have a sealant on the glass at the moment.

As we're not getting much good weather now, I want to seal the glass, but I have some questions:

1. How long do you have to leave the sealant on before it 'cures'? - I'm thinking about Nanolox Urban Glass Sealant;

2. Should I seal all the exterior glass or just the windscreen?

3. Is there anything better for the price, ease of application and performance than Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant?

I've used gtechniq g1 and can recommend it easy to apply bit harder to remove but works well

Ive not used Nanolex before but I had a talk with my dealer a couple of days ago about glass sealants and he said that Nanolex ultra is currently the best glass sealant on the market price/performance wise. It has a unique formula that stands out from other glass sealants.

Another option with a unique formula is Optimum glass coat but it is expensive.

He said formula based you can put glass sealants into 2 groups:
1) Sealants with "low" durability like Angelwax H2go, Bouncers drop&roll glass sealant come from one manufacturer and are based on the same or similar formula
2) Coatings with "high" durability like Carpro fly by forte, Gyeon Q2view come from another manufacturer and are based on the same or similar formula

Nanolex ultra and Optimum glass coat are different but Nanolex is way cheaper.

i used gtechniq G5 as its easier to remove than G1 and better for low town speeds apparently?

works really well, alot better than the rain x i was using.

i did 2 coats on the windscreen and 1 on the side and back windows. and did the shower screen in the bathroom!

1. How long do you have to leave the sealant on before it 'cures'? - Depends on the weather and what you're using

2. Should I seal all the exterior glass or just the windscreen? - up to you, I seal all of them.

3. Is there anything better for the price, ease of application and performance than Nanolex Urban Glass Sealant? I really like H2GO

However the best one to apply is the one YOU like the most.

I use nanolex urban now as my only glass sealant.
I love it and haven't found anything that works as well, for me!

I leave it 10 mins to bond, but that's because I always apply in a shaded area. Wouldn't recommend applying in sunlight, have done once and it was a NIGHTMARE to take off! Lol

Personally I Seal all glass, normally 2 coats on the front and 1 all round. Not necessarily needing to apply two coats but each to their own!

I don't think you would go wrong buying and using urban!

nice one, im using it too and it really is great stuff
just polish the windscreen first with glass polish then give it an ipa/panel wipe down first so the glass is spotless and the sealant bonds better

For what it's worth I only use a "proper" glass sealant on the windscreen. The other glass gets Auto Finesse Tough Coat. It seems to last longer on the glass than on paint!
