How's this compare to bsd.

I was using Sonax spray sealant which was great.


Got hold of bsd which is a different beast and very thick and gloopy not actually a nice product to apply,

Got this turtle Wax on offer but yet to use it to be honest.

I have just ordered another 2 and been using it as a drying aid.

For people who have said about streaking, you are using to much as I have found out a couple of times.

For the price point it's excellent. I have used it a few times and am very happy with the results.The only time I have had streaking issues is when too much product has been laid down (usually because my microfibre is loaded up with it and I am still spraying more on a panel), you only need a little.

As a winter top up its fantastic, so easy to use and gets results. Very much a fan and for the price, it's a no brainer. Absolutely love it as a drying aid for wheels also, just wrestles the water away with easy.

Sweet beading too

I've been a fan of BSD for years and currently use it as a drying aid each wash mixed 50:50 with Chemical Guys Hybrid Sealant V07.

Used neat on a dry car, I didn't find the BSD gave a nice user experience, whereas the Turtlewax was a joy to apply and buff.
The slick finish of the Turtlewax is also something I missed with BSD.

I'll have to see what the beading is like as the car is still in my garage.

I find that it's much, much slicker than BSD, and I can't really comment on gloss level vs BSD... both look great after properly washing a car.

DSW is great as use as a detailer, for example using it on the inner sills and door jambs etc.

Thing is, I've never been that impressed with the water beading/sheeting. And it's completely anecdotal, but I thought that it repelled dirt a little better with BSD. To be fair, the BSD had a base layer of BH DSW, but that shouldn't technically affect anything.

I never liked how 'sticky' BSD was especially after freshly claying and polishing a car, but then I realised... how often do you actually touch a car, other than the handles?

Anyway, I bought a few bottles of the Turtle Wax and after applying a base layer, am now using it as a drying aid. But when it runs out, I don't think I'll be getting more Turtle Wax stuff.

If I can't find the right product, I'll go back to a base layer of DSW and then using the BSD as a drying aid.

Missed this the first time around. The reason you probably found it better when used dry and on clean paint is because that's how it should be used! It isn't a QD or a drying aid so using it like one will give you potential issues.

However, use it like a sealant (as that's what it is), then it will be very good. It isn't meant to be used in place of BSD, it is more like Polymer Net Shield. I want to see which is more durable - the Turtlewax or PNS.

If you bought Dry and Shine as well, then this is your drying aid/top up protector. This adds hydrophobicity to the mix as the Hydrophobic Sealant Wax isn't particularly beady by itself.

Use the right products in the right place for the right purpose. I'm all for experimenting, but there's loads of info on YouTube for this to show how to use it effectively. Quite why people think it is a QD when it has 6 months durability is very strange.

I'm loving this Turtlewax Hydrophobic Sealant wax since I've changed from a black car to a silver one !!!

It goes on so much nicer.
My son sealed the CRV a couple of weeks ago after I'd decon'd and clayed it and commented on how slick the finish was.

And commented again a couple of days after when it rained.
The beading is quality for the price.

Applied dry it was great
