The number 1 sealant is a standard sealant. which was our first development of a sealant.

Winter Coat has different properties to protect your car from the winter weather (ice, salt etc)

Summer Jacket (soon to be launched) is another sealant, but it is our first in the nano series, which has superior gloss enhancers.

I like the sound of summer jacket, winter coat was pretty glossy anyway

I bought this recently at a steal off ebay. For the price I thought I'd give it a punt. Now I probably used it wrong but I used it neat as a drying aid over an existing wax and I must say it worked brilliantly. Didn't smear at all and buffed off with ease even when applied to damp paint. The beading a couple of days later in heavy rain was exceptional. It looks surprisingly glossy too so that's a bonus but overall a great product.

I could do with some advice please.

I used this last year and LOVED it! Went on easy, lasted and produced great beading. As a result I purchased some more a couple of weeks ago and finally got round to applying it yesterday.

I did exactly the same as last year, namely "Can be used on wet vehicles, simply spray on and wipe off, please ensure car is dried thoroughly after application". However I'm not sure if the formula has changed or perhaps it's reacted with something already on the car but it's left a really weird effect on the glass.



Just to be clear I'm pretty confident I'm to blame as opposed to the product so don't think this is me making any kind of criticism.

However I'm struggling to remove it from the glass. So far I've tried APC, CG glasscleaner, and Gtechniq Panel Wipe all of which haven't really helped. The panel wipe seemed to help until it rained today and the glass looks awful all over again.

Any ideas? Just get really busy with a clay bar or any better alternatives?

Contrary to popular belief, a clay bar won't remove a coating or a wax

What you need is an abrasive glass polish, something like Carpro Ceriglass on a rayon hand block will sort it out

Nanolex do one too i think, but they key is it has to be an abrasive one

I tried this about a month ago

Now its good but only lasted about 150 miles. Therefore I cant really see what advantage it gives over something like sonax bsd which beads better and lasts longer (roughly 3 months). BSD keeps the car cleaner as well.

By no means am I slating the product, it does its job well but the durability is nowhere near stated (I've found the same with powermaxed rain off as well).
