Auto Finesse Tough Coat & Collinite 845

Just wondering if anyone has had any experience of layering these? Looking for more info on curing times, number of layers, time waited between layers and obviously the overall results. Does Colli strip away TC etc? Not interested in any alternatives, Iíve got these 2 products in my kit bag so they need to get used. Iíve applied both serperatelty in the past. Cheers

845 is more of a hybrid sealant anyway from what Iíve experienced.
Iíd be thinking of just spending your time applying 2 good layers of either. Rather than trying to layer the different products together.
Both have very similar properties regarding gloss and longevity, so just stick with the one brand cos itíll play nice with itself.

As above I don't think you would benefit from applying one above the other, I would opt for 2 good coats of just one product, I've used both before products and they both do a great job!

Thanks for the replies.

Iíve already got some tough coat but noticed that today. Anyone any ideas on what will be coming next? More interested in a replacement for Tough Prep as I was going to get some of this as a base for TC, previously used Tripple.

Collinites will be more durable than toughcoat, but TC is so quick and easy to apply use this to layer on top occasionally just like you would a QD to improve gloss and water behaviour

No point layering 845 on top of TC as you're putting it over something that won't last all that long so both will fail together.
