Shield although quite a bit more expensive proved to be that every bit more special. Only had a 30ml sample but came very close to buying a full pot
Very interesting, thats given me a bit to think about. if you dont mind me asking, what made you feel that shield was a bit more special? was it to do with the beading/sheeting/durability etc, or rather just the branding?

Also for all of you who have glasur, where did you order it from?

Thanks all

Glasur is an amazing show wax...and it is that. Looks great last 3 months really and a well prepped car. Shield is as it says a bit of a shield, PTFE fortified so good 'Self Cleaning' properties and lasts well. IMHO chalk and cheese I would say.

The general performance of shield was just as good, but it all lasted longer before things started to deteriorate when compared to Glasur.

but if you decide on Zymol, I don't see any reason to buy Glasur over carbon

Glasur is good, But for me after extensive testing Duru$ does everything glasur does, infact it does it all better and the quality feel of the product and presentation is second to none for what it costs!

Thanks good to know. Its certainly a strong contender for me, so thanks for the recommendation. Will do a bit more research on their wax ranges as ive not really seen much about them. Very difficult to find much information about them on Detailing world.

Just out of interest, has anyone ordered direct from Zymol's uk website? what the delivery time / Quality of service like? Im half tempted now to go for carbon and then save a little bit of money for a ********** wax in the future.

I put up a test on here on my bonnet with titanium against carbon, both failed pretty much at the same time.

Only real difference between teh waxes I could make out was the consistency, carbon being much firmer but still nice and oily, harder than Glasur, with Titanium much softer, softer than Glasur, almost sorbet like. Both spread and removed very easily.
