H2go or G1 Window Sealents

Having gone through the forum I am still as confused as ever!

It seems there are two sealants for windows that come on people's lists
Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass and Angel wax H2 go.

Has anyone compared them side by side - which is easiest to apply and which is good on an older screen?

any help would be appreciated!

I have used G1 and I then made the switch to nanolex urban! Best decision I made

So easy to apply and remove, stunning results and easily outlasts what they say it will!

I think its one of the best out there

G1 can be very fussy to apply and needs multiple layers but has good durability.
H2o is much easier to apply and only needs one layer but only has around 3-4 months durability compared to the 12 months of G1.

The best combo I've found is G1 topped with G6

All the benefits of the durability of G1, with the crazy water behaviour of G6

When G6 wears away you don't really notice it, but it doesn't hurt to keep it topped up

Always used G1 on my cars, recently done my new car windows plus the panoramic roof, can be fiddly but follow the instructions to the book and you will be fine, h2go is very easy to use but of course lasts a few weeks at best in winter conditions, both are good in my eyes just depends if you want one that will last or one you don't mind topping up weekly

Recently applied h2go on all windows apart from the windscreen.

Got to say i am impressed. The water runs of quickly. I applied it then it rained 5 minutes later so wasnt applied in ideal conditions but works great.

I have applied it on my windscreen but suffered with smearing when the wipers were used. The screen was clean and had new wipers so bit unsure what happened.

Overall very happy with it.

G2 is my go to.

Easy to apply and the water run of is great, its supposed to be used for vehicles that do less than 40 but I find I don't use my wipers on the motorway.

- Put a little on a cotton makeup pad.

- Lightly cover your clean glass.

- Wait 5-15 mins.

I am in this category - but it will depend on your detailing setup. At the time I tried G1, I didn't have cover/garage facilities to do the application justice and it was fussy on conditions.

H2Go suits my cleaning cycles and capability

I do not have a garage and so will have to do the work outdoors - are you saying that G1 will be too fussy in this case/
