    Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I would say realistically for a daily driver that may not be garage kept, I estimate more accurately about 4-5 months good protection with Collinite #845, and about 6-7 months with #476 Collinite Super Double Coat Paste. Being garage kept, those figures I mention will be a bit better.

    The variability of durability can depend on certain factors, sun, rains, winter road salts, and repeated washings.

    This is key.

    I based my longevity of the Collinite on my own experiences with them.

    You can't just apply them, and then never do any kind of upkeep and expect them to last as long.
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    There's no time limit as to when a coating can be applied. Perhaps further down the road, when you've done enough research to feel you're comfortable enough to try a Coating.

    Collinite products are hybrids meaning in simple terms they are both a conventional wax, and a synthetic sealant combined in their formulations, whether the liquid #845 Insulator Wax, or their #476 or #915 Pastes.

    And like most other waxes and sealants they can leave dried residues in nooks and crannies, around trim and badges.
    It should also be noted that these Collinite products mentioned have little in the way of paint cleansing properties, and will need to be applied to a very clean paint finish.

    Others for durability and some people here like is Sonax Polymer Net Shield (PNS) It comes in an aerosol spray can.

    Another very good product, another fav of mine, might not last quite as long as the Collinite products, yet very good, very easy to apply and remove, has tremendous wow factor and a highly reflective candy coated glass like appearance on the paint is Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 (WGDGPS 3.0)

    The collinite products bead water like crazy, have their own special unique signature "look" to them, a little warmer more natural glow and appearance versus say WGDGPS.

    Honestly, I hope you don't see me as a fake for suggesting Sonax Polymer Net Shield as a worthy product, as I do have a brand new Can of it here, but in truth I have never used the product yet myself to confide about my personal experiences with it.

    But I do trust many of our forum members here, including or Forum master and host Mike Phillips who has also spoken very favorably about this product, and others from the Sonax line-up. Their products are manufactured in Germany. I've heard Sonax PNS can be a little "Draggy" feeling after application, but not sure about streaking. Proper application with any product is of course key.

    As for Collinite products, those I've used for pretty close to 3 decades, probably long before the majority of forum members here ever knew what Collinite was. They've been in business for a very long time, but you'll rarely if ever find such in any stores.


    Can products such as WGDGPS 3.0, Collinite, Menzerna Powerlock Sealant, and countless other waxes and sealants leave residues on trim, particularly textured black plastic trim? Yes! Almost virtually all will.

    Some people don't like work, and neither do I sometimes (I'm 65) I hate having to dig wax residues out of cracks, crevices by window trim, inside doors and trunks, hate difficulties if I want to protect under hood, trunk areas, door jambs, door sills,

    I once spent 2 days digging wax residues from every nook and cranny on my own father's 2005 VW Touareg cause he haphazardly threw some old vintage white Jelly Wax from a now long gone company in Chicago that was called Nu Look.

    The roof racks, every panel on the vehicle, the door jambs, rear lid, under hood, headlights, tail lights, badges, trim, plastic trim, wheels, etc etc., the vehicle looked like it was waxed by a 6 year old.

    If you like easy, and want pretty decent protection, no residues left behind, and probably gives 2-3 months minimum protection, then consider what it called a WOWA Product. (Wipe on and Walk Away)

    There's two that I have used, and continue to use often. And those products are Optimum Opti-Seal, and Ultima Paint Guard Plus. Yes, they are both sold here.

    Both of these products were ones that I instantly fell in love with! They are optically clear liquid Polymer Sealants, just about as easy as a detailer spray, prime a MF or Foam Pad with a spritz or two, spray 2-3 times at most to a panel, and spread. (or 2-3 sprays to half a hood) Spread with the applicator to insure coverage, work the product only to remove high spots is all from where you might've over-applied.

    Walk around the vehicle to continue to apply, take a 5 minute break, then only a light going over with a clean MF Towel or two is needed for final leveling, and smoothing of any possible slight smearing that might be left behind.

    Absolutely no residues left behind, if you get some on trim, no problems with that, in fact can also be used on trim and glass with no ill effects, no digging out powdery cruds from cracks, and this is a real plus when doing inside doors, under hood, trunk areas.

    Again, I love these two WOWA products. another beauty of them, they are pretty inexpensive in use, a little goes a very long way. If you read up on these two, you'll see what is said about them mirrors my comments.

    Hope these further comments I have made has helped you in some way.

    Optimum Opti-Seal 8 oz. Free Bonus!

    Ultima Paint Guard Plus, paint sealant, liquid wax, paint sealer, car wax sealant

    PS: I'm also a huge fan of Optimum's Opti-Bond Tire Gel Dressing, and Optimum Tire Shine. Both great products IMO.

    I, too, am a Collinite user. I use 476s most of the time, even thought I probably have 10 other paste wax choices that I've collected through the years. I also like Wolfgang Fuzion paste wax but it lists for $200 (cheaper on sale here). Both of these are easy-on, easy-off, just make sure you put them on thin. I use both in full sun (no choice unless I wait until after dark) without issues, too.
