Anyone here using TAC System Moonlight - would you recommend?

I am interested in using TAC Moonlight as my base sealant. Any real world experience with durability or application advice? I will decontaminate, polish and use a panel wipe product before hand.

Another sealant that caught my attention was Soft99 - Fusso Coat

I basically can't decide between the 2.

This is one of TACs best products for ease of use considering you will get decent durability times. Best to apply by spraying onto a short pile microfibre and not directly onto the panel. You'll get a more even coverage that way. It's quite oily so you can easily see what you're doing. Remove any excess with second microfibre and I personally buff with a third plush microfibre 10-15 mins after. Although no curing times are inferred or suggested I'd try to keep the car away from moisture for 6hrs ideally. There have been a couple of threads about it waterspotting. To add remember to empty the trigger of product and clean it or you will be left with a useless trigger.

I've seen this mentioned a few times, got me wondering how is best to empty the trigger - can you turn it upside down like with an aerosol?

Mine came with a lid also so I just wash it through with warm water bud and keep it separate bud.

Can't comment on the moonlight but I've used Fusso Coat on about 9 cars and it's fantastic, very easy to use just like any other wax but with great durability. It does fill slightly which is always a plus, very cheap too and will last for ages. It's a no brainer tbh.

Sorry to revive an old thread. Has anyone used this on their wheels?

Another revive on this. After seeing the Forensic Detailing video on this last night I was considering giving it a try, but wondered - do you need to throw away the cloths used to buff this?

I understand it's a low concentration of silica, but if it can harden in the spray head, then presumably it can harden in the cloths as well?

I've just used Cancoat on my Boxster which is very similar and threw away the cloths ... better safe than sorry

I’ve gone for Moonlight to put on my other half’s Fiesta, we have a baby on the way so I’m going to do a day enhancement and a layer of this shortly.

For waterspotting issues use a topper product while Moonlight cures, as with CQUK for example and you’ll avoid that. I intend on using Gyeon Cure as the sacrificial layer and for maintenance, I’ll be intrigued to see what the real world durability is as the TAC are really confident about it too.
