Spray Waxes, what we using?.

Coming to the end of my Duragloss and fancy trying something else. The duragloss is a doddle to use and looks good.

Lots on the market but wondered what people have tried recently and been happy with?

Thanks.

I can recommend DODO juice Future Armour, its not a wax but a Nano sealant, give great gloss and lasts fro around 3 months, super easy to apply and can be used on wet or dry surfaces

I have been using Optimum Car Wax for the last few years. Technically very clever stuff but very easy to use. I tend to use it as a drying aid.

I am sure these days there are lots of really nice spray waxes

Durability isn’t an issue as the car gets washed every week

The duragloss is very nice to use, but like we all do. Let’s try something new

I love using OPT Opti-seal as its a great rinse aid and good enough protection.

OPT car wax is nice and easy to use. It can streak on hot panels but not a huge issue. Its also the only UV patented spray wax on the market.

Meguiars x-press spray wax is highly rated in the US. Its suppose to be easy to use with great results even on hot panels and under the sun. Not tried it yet but its very tempting.

Meguiars Ultimate Quik Wax is my go-to at the moment - can get this in Gallons (Meguiars Synthetic X-Press Spray Wax) - works really well on glass, and doesn't stain trim either.

Lasts 2-3 weeks on side/rear windows, and about a week on windscreen. As good as any glass sealant.

As it doesn't stain trim, I've seen people use it on interior plastics, but haven't tried it personally. I generally use Megs Interior Quik Detailer or 1Z Cockpit Premium.

I picked some up a few weeks ago, tried it the other week and been pleased with it. Easy to apply, leaves a nice finish and feel to the paint work and as we had some rain last week - beading very good as well.

A quick shot of wife’s car having just applied it

Have you ever used any gtechniq glass sealants? im guessing not.

Their is no comparison between G5 and express spray wax so please dont mislead people!

G5 is a glass sealant and lasts 3 months and water just rolls up the screen at 25.

Express spray wax lasts 2 weeks, water does not roll up at 25 like G5 does at all!

I have Nanolex Ultra, GTechniq G1 and G5, CarPro flyby forte, Angelwax H2Go.
But not on all of my cars.

The point I was making, is that it’s a spray wax where it works on all surfaces, doesn’t stain and therefore extremely easy to use as you don’t have to be too careful.

This is a thread about spray wax, I apologise for going off topic.
