Sonax Birlliant Shine Detailer - breakthrough on QD market ?

I would like to share with You my tests of Sonax Biriliant Shine QD In my opinion ,it's one of my biggest discoveries since I begun my adventure with detailing.


So, let's see


Packaging first :



Instruction in German,but it's QD so I think I can manage




This QD is quite thick compared to other offerings on market, it reminds me a bit of Swissvax Nano Express. It has really pleasant , coconut scent.

In terms of application,it's very easy, just like other QD's on market. Spray, spread, turn MF on other side, wipe, job done.

Effects ?

It deffinietly adds something to look of car,again it's on par with other positions on market. However, I found it to lack this slippery feel. Not that it is important, but I have to admit that other QD's are much better in this terms.

This is how my car looked after application :















So far, it looks like just another QD on crowded market...but now watch this


Let's see on water behaviour after washing. There is Dodo Juice wax on car. It holding up, but certailnly beading is far from good.









Also wheels, almost zero protection :




Two videos showing water behaviour :


Car was then dried, and Sonax QD was applied...

















Nice

Rember wheels, which showed before zero beading ?









Wiper arms :





My Plastidip'ed badge :





And this is plastic trim :





Rear wing was left without any top up:




which is clearly visible





Just like this piece of bonnet :





And another videos, showing water behaviour after Sonax QD :







More updates to follow, including comparisions with leading products on market

That's a lot from a QD. How's it priced?

Great beading
Indeed, it is great. Beading from this QD, on bare paint, can rival 95% of full scale LSP products

This QD is by far my new favourite since the water beading and sheeting it gives is second to none. Gloss and ease of use is also very good.

So would it be fairer to say this is closer to a spray sealant than a QD

Even though, if we compare it to other spray sealants on market, it still would be superior to them.

I have tried it I like I will buy more.Speads easier over a wax. The beading is incredible.The beads stand tall bump your car with you body and down they roll.I have put it on side windows.Wow It is the detailer for the spray can sealant that does a really great job. Brillant can be used after a car wash That how the sonax usa rep told me.
