Dodo Juice Supernatural Acrylic Spritz experience???

Hi all.

I have been given a brand new bottle of this and wondered if anyone has any experience using it,and best prep/application methods?

Reading up about it there seems to be no standard process for application with lots of variation from the instruction and there seems to be mixed results.

Many thanks.

SN Acrylic-Spritz is a nice product, and somewhat underrated.

It's an acrylic spray sealant, similar in concept to the old Werkstat Acrylic-Jett Trigger... Best when layered, where it creates a 'candy-coated' type of look, and for me the durability has been reliably in the 3-4 month range; maybe a little more on a garage queen.



[4-Coats]

In terms of prep, I would recommend either bare, polished and stripped paint, or a familiar acrylic-based product like CarLack Complete (Carlack + SN AS is the current equivalent of the old Werkstat twins, from what I have found.)...

Application wise, it's a spray-on-wipe-off sort of product... Pretty simple, and forgiving of weather conditions... I'd give it a bit of time between layers (At least an hour, though 12-24 might help the previous layer to cure a little more thoroughly.), and I wouldn't be afraid to stack half a dozen coats on... It's a pretty easy product to apply after a wash to keep it topped up, so use it as frequently as you like; it's water-based.

You can also apply it over or under a wax... In either case it will add a 'synthetic' look to the product, and a bit of durability.

Beading isn't bad...

Hope this helps.

I've used it and it was good. I'm not sure what kind of demand there is for products like this anymore though. I've moved away from waxes and onto sealants like Fusso coat. I just started to top that with AG Polar Seal via a foam lance. It takes a couple of minutes with no application hassle and looks amazing. If you like things more old school, I would think it would be fine.

Thanks guys, really appreciate the feedback and as I have got a new bottle free will give it a go. Like the idea of layering.

I know this sounds stupid but I enjoy cleaning and in particular waxing so using a sealant that I dont have to touch for several months takes away half the fun for me.

Pleased it can be applied on top of wax as a top up too.

Thanks again

It's not really stupid at all... Keeping products topped-up as often as you can tends to have a beneficial effect in maintaining that 'just detailed' look, and keeping your protection at 100%.

Basically, you can either treat SN AS as a standalone, highly layerable acrylic sealant, or as a QD. Some of the more modern spray sealant technologies can offer some individual advantages, but SN AS puts up a really good fight, and often proves itself more reliable in the real world...

DD Acrylic spritz is a good product. It is a decent sealant giving good gloss and as has been said lasts 3/4 months when layered.

I believe DoDo say that their Future Armour, another great sealant, is more kind to waxed surfaces than Acrylic Spritz.
