Hydrophobic finish.

Just been onto Youtube to look at the Sonax and Bouncer finishes for a good hydrophobic seal and have to say I am a little disappointed.

Is it me or will a good quality wax finish give the same beading results?

For example

You've missed the point, plus both products requires less time to apply.

There is'nt much enlightening to do, a wax requires more prep before application, that's if you want it to bond to the surface properly that is, these spray and wipe products literally takes minutes whilst offering a decent amount of durability. Is that enlightening enough for you.

Basically its quick and easy but you dont get as much durability. I had actually worked that one out. Cannot see why my post upset you. I was not knocking anyone or any product. I get, in my eyes anyway, a good bead and the water just sheets off nicely. All that from the wax.

Was just wondering if I had missed something. Apparently not.

I am lucky in that I can take my time with washing, polishing and waxing. If I do need a quick fix I do turn to my detailing sprays.

Thank you for the reply.

Slow down frank, i was'nt upset for your post you clearly took mine the wrong way, some of these modern detail sprays are more spray sealant than basic detail spray and can offer durability that is comparable to some wax's and are more than a quick fix. I don't make time to get upset by a few words on a sreen ( anymore ) life is to short for that nonsense

That Sonax QD or Seal has been the question for some time, used on clean clayed paint it performs very well.

Other have used it as a sacrificial layer, for me I used in on my washed cars rather than an interim product to use while scratching dust over my black cars.

Good products..

This was my video, I thought both products were excellent tbf with marginally different properties. It wasn't really a versus but just a comparison of similar priced, similar applications. I really wish I'd tried the Bead Juice spray and rinse method as well but that wasn't an aspect I was interested in at the time.

In my opinion, even a cheap wax will give decent water behaviour but even with a wax on it, I find myself using these types of products after the 2nd or 3rd wash anyway so I don't see these as either/or but a suite of things that can be used to fit whatever needs I've got at any point in time.

All fair points.

If I get the time I will try and do a similar video for another comparison. Good of you to take the time to do your video, it was quite interesting. It has been inspirational to getting me to try different things.

Waxes bead and those sprays sheet water away meaning less spotting after it rains and quicker drying with a towel after washing.
