White Diamond is a glaze not a sealant as you would appear to be inferring here.
White Light is also just a fancy version of an AIO from CG, you’re repeating the SRP/Tripple step.

Jet seal is the only product that makes sense to use after SRP. Tripple is oily so most sealants will struggle to bond.

I've used SRP for the last couple of years and found it pretty good - especially as I'm a newbie to this. Although, I am thinking of trying BH Cleanser Polish - which seems to be a better version of SRP - or am I wrong?? Better as in less dust, more waxes will adhere to it and have better cleaning properties.

Although not a regular user of AIO's I had a bottle of SRP for years which occasionally came out and did an excellent job at removing and minimising scratches / swirl marks on the odd vehicle and restoring the red on my old classic single stage red car. Because it ran out I felt it only right to try the BH offering. It is good and leaves a nice shine but I found it to be a lot less effective at hiding marks and correcting neglected paint.

This was a VERY quick blast with SRP, a cutting pad and a DA as a test at first. In the end the car looked amazing for 17 years untouched.

That large SRP write up was not written by us, it contains a lot of good info, but also some things that don't ring true with us. We aren't out to deceive anyone with our products, we try our absolute best not to make claims that the product can't back up in real life. SRP does have cut, if it didn't we would be honest about that. It is no compound, not by a long shot, but it does have abrasives in it, albeit at the very, very gentle end of the scale.
Hi Autoglym. I'm a little confused about the abrasives. If you watch the following YouTube video by the Forensic Detailing Channel (watch from about 19m30secs onwards and you'll see that the guy contacted Autoglym and asked specifically about SRP and abrasives. He was told by you guys that SRP contains no added abrasives. He goes on to mention chemical abrasion from the solvents, but that's not the same as added abrasives that you mention. Could you clarify it once and for all?

Good product - used it on and off for years, definitely has its place but it does seem that there is, and always has been, confusion about this product. Many thanks

Thanks for that Shine - I will bear this in mind. I wanted to try more BH products because every one I've used so far has been pretty flawless - but I'll definitely be keeping the SRP in my bag
