    Is 120 days neccessary?

    Had to have a 2018 VW repainted because of an accident. The shop has done painting for other vehicles of mine. One vehicle spiderwebbed after a bit and he said it was because I didn't let it gas for 120 days before sealing it. (He did repaint it no charge).
    I have no garage and this VW is a daily drive. Do I have to let it gas for 120, or can I seal it now after 60 days?
    My patience are shot waiting.

    You can use Meguiar’s M305, anytime you
    want to, during that 120 day waiting period.

    Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze 16 oz.

    It’s true that 3M Imperial Hand Glaze
    does not provide any protection.

    On the other hand:
    Meguiar’s M305 is more than a glaze.
    It does provide paint protection.

    ”Body shop safe glaze with wax protection?
    Only from Meguiars!

    Meguiars 305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze
    is the first step in creating a brilliant, high
    gloss shine after wet-sanding, cutting, and
    buffing a new paint job. Formulated using a
    complex blend of oils, super fine abrasives
    and durable wax protection, Meguiars 305
    Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze increases gloss
    and adds protection to fresh paint jobs.
    Meguiars 305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze is
    breathable and paintable, and its silicone-free
    formula makes it body-shop safe.

    Body shops typically use a glaze after compound-
    ing and polishing a new paint job to really make
    the paint POP, so when the customer picks up the
    vehicle, they’re blown away by their investment to
    get their vehicle repainted (or repaired). The only
    issue with a glaze is they don’t offer any wax pro-
    tection, until now!

    Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze is
    the only body-shop safe glaze formulated with
    real wax protection
    . This means your freshly
    painted car will not only leave the body shop
    looking great, but it will be protected as well!

    Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze
    is breathable and paintable, and its silicone-free
    formula makes it body-shop safe. Use Meguiars
    M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze by hand or
    machine.

    Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze
    offers light paint correction when used with a
    polishing pad on a dual action or rotary polisher.
    Use Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing Durable Glaze
    to remove light holograms and shallow swirl marks
    on a freshly painted vehicle.

    You can also use Meguiars M305 Ultra Finishing
    Durable Glaze on cured finishes (think new car
    that you just purchased) to enhance gloss before
    you apply a dedicated wax or sealant.”

    So how does this concept work? Gasses can get out, but yet contaminants can't penetrate? Interesting concept I'm just not familiar with the logic. Thanks for sharing.

    Telling someone 120 days is called,

    Bubba-Proofing


    Usually, 30 days is a good enough "window of time" for any solvents and other ingredients to outgas before sealing the surface.

    I must have 3-4 in-depth articles on this topic since 2004. Go to Google and type in

    fresh paint Mike Phillips


    And I'm sure something will pop up here on AGO or MOL
