    Which is more glossy between TLC 2 and Beadmaker?

    As a LSP which one gives the most gloss?

    I have both, for my experience if is merely gloss bead maker is the winner, not by a lot but I think it gives more gloss and slickness but TLC2 have great durability (5-6months) and also givesa lot of gloss and slickness. Bead Maker only last 4-6weeks tops.

    My 2 cents

    I have TLC2 on both of our cars one metallic silver and the other pearl white, I use beadmaker as a drying aid . As a driveway detailer I find this to help also with gloss and slickness.

    Iíve only used beadmaker and for me it has plenty of gloss and itís a good price point. I will agree w a previous post that it doesnít last more than a few weeks. I donít mind that, especially if you use it as a drying aid. I usually use mine after Iíve dried the car and not as a drying aid. I get better results that way.

    Funny thing is, they call it BEAD maker, but the hydrophobic nature is definitely sub par to other spray sealants out there. Iíd does have nice gloss and slickness, however.

    Agreed, they picked the weakest feature of it to name the product. If they were to pick its best feature, then it would be called Dust Magnet.
    But it sure does make the surface slick and glossy. I sold the unused portion of my gallon and will never buy it again.

    I've read several people say how it attracts dust, but I've never had that issue, and I'm on my second gallon of it. My truck gets washed every three weeks, and I apply it on a dry vehicle after every wash.

    I tend not to use, test or review products not sold on the Autogeek store. It's kind of in keeping with the idea of the forum rules.

    Forum Rules


    Plus I don't have the spare time to test, use or review products that are not sold on the AG store, heck I can't keep up with testing, using and writing out in-depth reviews and how-to articles with the products that ARE on the AG Store.





    So sorry, can't tell you want I think about TLC2 and Beadmaker. Looks like others filled in for me thought....


    I have used this product in the past and this last Saturday and I do like it.


    Mother's Day Wash & Ceramic Wax












    And we do carry it on the AG Store.


    Griot's Garage Ceramic 3-in-1 Wax
