Sub £30 sealant for white?

My previous car had 2 coats of FK1000p applied every October and it would easily last until the following March providing I didnít try using any really harsh chemicals in between. Love the stuff and for value for money I think itís hard to beat.

Current car has a ceramic coating on the body but Iíve still got FK1000p on the wheels.

Thanks very much for the detailed replies! Itís really appreciated! I think I might just have to give it a go in the new year... especially as my current wax is nearing the bottom of the tin!

It's a good decision. Dreaming of crazy improvements on white is, in all detailing fora I ever visited, a fantasy ... a wish. White simply doesn't have the physical attributes to do anything like a deep carnauba shine of a dark blue or similar.

Therefore it's very simple: Go for longevity and affordable options.

Totally agree, although Iím using Naviwax Ioncoat for light colours at the moment and really find it excellent on the Alpine white. When Iíve invested in the FK1000p Iíll do a comparison with the the Naviwax to see which I prefer, but I could live with a little less shine if I get longer lasting surface protection.

GTECH C2V3 on white is ideal and produces a sharp look which as its easy one and off can be layered every wash when drying as well. The best in my opinion was Jeff's Werkstatt Acrylic Jet trigger which is No longer available. When I had a pearl white car switched to C2V3 and was impressed by that as well.

I agree with some of the other posters - FK1000 is superb value for money and looks great on light colours. I also use it on the wheels - brake dust comes off with a pressure washer and minimal agitation. Great product.

Having used many many many different products from waxes / sealants/ coatings I cant help but think CarLack 68 AIO or Long Life is truly brilliant at the price point.

Pretty sure Polished Bliss recommended Carlack for those looking for a Werkstatt alternative.
