    Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant vs Meguiars #21 Synthetic Sealant 2.0

    Hi there,

    Thank you all for your help!

    Just wondering what the difference is between Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant and Meguiar's #21 Synthetic Sealant 2.0.

    Do they last about 6 months?

    Have not used megs #21 but have used megs #20 ( polymer sealant). Does offer about 6 months, depending on weather and usage obviously. WDGS offers just as much protection and an even better look in my opinion. If you are not going to put a carnauba wax on top, stick with WDGS. Have used wolfgang on my black jeep. Shop I work in uses megs.

    I like and use 'em both!!
    But if you're using, say, Meg's UC: Do you need paint cleaner with Meguiars Ultimate Compound?...
    I'd go with Meg's# 21 2.0 if I were you...{<Synergy>...et al.}

    Too many variables---natural and man-made---to give an exact time period.
    Let's say they should 'last longer', than waxes will, under the same identical conditions.

    I've used both, and like both. Wolfgang may have a slight advantage on ease of removal. #21 does well in dry, non-humid weather. If you take it off too soon, you'll see some smeared areas after you put it in the sun ... #20 is very similar to Wolfgang in my book. 6 months is a consistent average you could expect from any of these.

    I like and use both. Although I so far all my usage of WG has been from the numerous samples I've gathered every few weeks or so. When I'm buying, I'm buying Megs 21 2.0 and use it MUCH more often. Synergy perhaps.... who knows at this point. Used to be I'd use Megs just because I had so freaking much of their other products. Now however I have WG & BF in both WOWO and WOWA versions.

    That being said.... I prefer to apply the WOWO versions of ANY sealant over and above the WOWA version. For me, it's a LOT easier to put a pad on the GG and apply it very evenly and very thin than it is to crawl around with a surgically clean microfiber applicator pad and just hope I get enough vapor(s) of the WOWA version(s) on the paint to actually get full coverage. (For those that have done it, you know what I mean. A few drops on the applicator pad and wipe an entire panel, few more drops and another panel, (reminds me of lather rinse repeat). I just find it frustrating to get full coverage with what it literally vapors compared to a film that I KNOW is there.

    Would the extra step of adding a glaze beforehand be usefull? If so what would would you recomend?

    The only time I'd put a glaze on ANYTHING would be maybe a show car that already had darned near perfect paint, was going to a weekend show (preferably inside), and wasn't going to be exposed to any washing or water till the next time I did any maintenance on it.

    In other words, a glaze is nothing but a quick "cover-up" that can add 'pop', but has literally ZERO durability. I look at glaze like makeup hiding bad skin. Topping a glaze with a sealant is a waste of sealant, because the glaze will wash off long before even the cheapest sealant would. (imho of course)

    I haven't used either but I just picked up a bottle of #21 based on all of the good reviews for it. You should be fine with either one.

    does #21 or #26 leave a white residue on trim? I plan on taping but wondering for specific areas,
