Wowos crystal sealant

Morning all,

I have recently bought some of the Wowos crystal sealant and I was wondering about peoples experiences-

I have read a few threads about this product and the new formula seems to be better for removal but I was wondering if anyone had experience with this? is it best to use an applicator pad and buff or spray on a microfiber and then remove?

I was originally planning to use this on my winter wheels but reading more about it I was wondering about more of the car, for example windows and sunroof? has anyone used it on the their windscreen?

Exterior paintwork, has anyone used this on top of a wax for longevity or does that defeat the purpose? and if you did use it on top of wax how did you get on?

I was going to put Icon on my car this weekend for its winter jacket and wondered about the benefit of adding the sealant over the top to help with the harsh winter here?

As always appreciate your thoughts and input

Not used CS but you should be putting a wax over a sealant and not visa versa

Iv used crystal sealant on glass, alloys and exhaust tips. Applied via a MF finger mitt and buffed off immediately with a MF cloth. Works really well on the windows!

I agree, but CS states on the bottle that it can be applied over or under a wax. I'd prefer to apply on clean paint and then a wax over CS.

I find misting onto a folded low pile MF, quickly spreading over a small area and buffing instantly with another fresh towel is the best way to go. Use it at a base coat also and not on top of wax. Found it fine as a glass sealant but I didn't use it on the windscreen. For me it's best use is as a wheel coating.

Thanks for this, as Gixxer says they do say it can be put on top but would the product life then be determined by the wax underneath? It makes sense to be put underneath as you say just wondering about the benefit vs pitfalls.

Did you use it on your windscreen too? did you get any wiper judder?

Thanks for your thoughts, I must admit I really only bought it for my alloys and I am a bit hesitant to try it on the paintwork of a new car, especially being new to the DW.

Thanks Brian, I think it was your post that originally led me to purchase it for the wheels

Yes used it on my windscreen, no wiper judder at all. Used it on 2 cars so far without any issues. Took mine for a long drive last weekend and with wipers no issues at all, without wipers the water just beads straight up the windscreen.

Yep, I am with Brian on this one.

I have the first formula, however I did apply it the first time using a microfiber applicator and buffing of immediately but it was a pain in the A**...

I then tried it again, I cannot remember if it was Brian or Fraser himself that told me to just give it a couple of spritz as the the bottles have a very fine mist then wipe in with one microfiber cloth and immediately off with a second deeper pile.

The beading is brilliant!
