AF Powerseal first use

Got some of this a while back and got round to using it today for the first time.

Used it on the Mrs daily driver,58'plate 5 door Megane. In ok condition.

So I washed,detarred,clayed then BH Cleanser polish then onto Poweseal.

Used my DA to apply as per instructions,seemed to go on fine without any issues,what I did notice after coating a few panels is that I was having to rinse out my pad as the product was building up on it and leaving build up of it on panel edges etc.

AF claim it'll last up to 12 months, my plan is to only use maintenance washes over the winter with no protective top ups to see how long it lasts.

Hopefully will get a good few months as the paint was pretty clean after using BH CP.

No pics unfortunately but I will update on durability

Im interested to see your results and compare them to mine. I plan on comparing AF tough coat to Powerseal on one of our cars. Ill polish it with Poorboys pro polish first.

Durability for you might be a bit shorter coz of Cleanser polish being a glaze but youll still get a couple of months off.

Like I said...Im interested in your results!

Never going to last the 12 months then!!!
Personally I’d try a citrus cleaner and the a fallout remover after 3 moths to see if it revives the LSP.

What makes you think that?

Wouldn’t a fall out remover remove the LSP?

I sold my Power Seal on after it's first and only use due to the average performance. For all the effort made preparing the paint and applying via machine, roughly 4 months of protection doesn't make it worth the effort imo.

Because the beading is pretty weak by the looks of it from your second photo.
No a fallout remover will not remove your LSP, in fact it should refresh it.
