Not wishing to be pedantic but actually Fusso is a wax not a sealant. The definition of a sealant is something that chemically bonds to the paintwork. Fusso doesn't do that, it is held there by surface tension like any 'natural' wax - only the synthetic make up of Fusso makes it smell like a sealant!
Fusso is most definitely a sealant, a sealant is a synthetic product where as wax is a natural product, fusso is synthetic. A synthetic normally lasts longer than a wax, fusso durability is supposed to be a year ( not used myself). A hybrid is a mixture of both natural and synthetic. The diffrence is to do with the ingredients and not how it reacts to paintwork.

Sorry buddy but that is incorrect. Not all wax comes from leaves or coconuts, synthetic wax is still wax. Ingredients do not define the product, how it bonds to the paint does. Fusso does not chemically bond like a sealant, therefor it is a wax.

'Hybrid' is marketing term, nothing more. Don't get me wrong I love some hybrid waxes, But the only difference between say Dodo Juice SN and SNH is the SNH contains synthetic waxes as well as natural ones. It's still a wax though, not a sealant.

Sorry mate but a synthetic wax is a sealant
Other well know company's have spent millions on research and testing on how to get a wax to last longer. yet fusso gets theres to last a year. the reason it lasts a year is its a sealant and bonds to the paint. its the bond that makes it last so long. unless you have a different reason.

I hate the guy but he is right

Fusso and FK1000p are both classed as paste sealants. Ask Jackie from Nipponshine who sells Fusso in the UK. He has explained countless times on FB why it is called a wax, something to do with the japanese language and the translation to english.

If it is man made is it synthetic. It can be called a synthetic wax but that doesn't make it a real wax. It might be called a synthetic wax but that is just another name for sealant. It is all sales jargon these days, they call it whatever they think will help it sell best.

Fusso is a paint sealant, for soft99 range of waxes theres the likes of king of gloss etc but as posted above the labeling as wax by soft99 is to do with the translation more than the meaning of the word.

Think Authentic is the only true natural wax soft99 sell? KOG is a hybrid from memory.

I think authentic is a hybrid too, albeit one with a high carnuba content

It certainly doesn't behave like any natural wax I've ever used either
