I’ll try to get a photo of that tonight.

I can't remember if a Flex Wax has been compared to it yet, I think it may have?

I'd actually just like your opinion on it as a product really and what you'd recommend instead of it, if you would actually recommend anything, or is it potentially "there's nothing better for the price".

Apex Detail compared it to Flex Wax.

I might do a 3 way comparison between the old formula, and Crystal Sealant.

I have that! I'll get a photo of everything I have and see what people want to see compared.

The new formula is not available in EU/UK, only NA Maybe that explains the low interest over here.

Is this going to be a wash test or a long term test? If long term, I'd put it up against Megs Hybrid Ceramic Wax as it is its direct competitor, applied dry. BSD is also another one as too many people think BSD lasts for much longer than it actually does! It would be interesting to see how long it lasts over there.

I always use Crystal Sealant as a benchmark, though I seem to get better performance. I wonder if there are different formulations, or if it is just the climate/environment that causes this?

I'm not sure. I was concerned my bottle may have froze causing it's deficiency, but it help up in the chemical testing so I'm thinking that's not the case here.

This would be a chemical resistance test, since that's why people buy Ice Seal N Shine. I might do another long term test with the half of my hood since the coatings are still going, and mix up the competitors. See if after 6 months of wear, a fresh application of some different products can beat them out to 1 year.
