Wowo's Crystal Sealant

Hi all

Does anyone have any experience of the above product? I've seen the review on here and am a little worried about the 'don't let it dry at any cost' phrase.

I have their Contact 121 wax and QD, both of which I really rate but want to know if it's worth the hassle. If not, any other alternatives.

I currently use Poorboys EX-P which seems foolproof.

Hey mate, used this other day to seal my alloy wheels for rest of winter, it really easy to use, shake it well, spray onto applicator pad, spread it evenly over the surface, wipe dry with first cloth, buff straight after with second, job done.

I managed to coat the whole alloy on one side and dry and buff before it dried mate, so don't panic to much, it takes few mins to dry imo.

That's reassuring! Had visions of it drying as soon as it hits the panel and me weeping beside my new car half way through it's first detail!!

What I found is I over applied it a tad so I could see the liquid on the paint, just kept an eye on it to see for any signs of it starting to dry and then wiped it off and buffed etc

I would advise doing same, it doesn't dry immediately like people think it does, just keep an eye on it, work small areas to be cautious, don't leave it more than minute to be safe or it is going to dry. Work small area at a time, till your comfortable and confident with using it.

Np mate, it leaves a very slick finish, water just runs off the wheels , dirt washes off really easy quality product and I found it made the metallic paint pop really well.

you do have workable time, but i'd do a panel at a time at the most

Excellent - the review on here was very positive and the wax and QD are great. Hope this complements them!

I found it very hard to buff off perfectly on a black roof. Could always see that little bit left.

However I tried again but by spraying directly onto the surface then wiping over with one cloth then buffing with a thicker pile. Seemed to be a bit easier but still not the most user friendly in my opinion. It does protect and bead ridiculously well! Just takes time to apply!

I agree with what you said, with dark colored car, I can see the hazing appear easily. And maybe answer lies in using very little spray as possible, I guess. Certainly, very promising product and need some tinkering to make it user friendly. Smell also can improve as you smell ammonia like smell.

Fourthwax spray sealant is very similar to this as well as Powermax Wintercoat. Wintercoat can be diluted with water and it seem to help, and I wonder if I can sort of dilute the Crystal Sealant and see how it turns out.

So much is in the bottle, and I've got 3of this from recent deals, I like to extensively use it. Hopefully I can find the solution to use it nicely.
