    Re: Sealant comparison

    Me too. I assume it will perform better than 845. Likely going to be able to reapply some to the Rover hood soon. And I have at least 10 test panels on the Sentra opened up - just need the time to apply them.

    I don't have any 476. I can ask in the Samples thread.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    It seems to be generally that 476 and 915 last longer than 845. I think 476 is the longest.

    If I get some I'll see how it does here. Winter here is just endless, wet, dark, dreary, wet, mossy, wet rain. Cars outside are pretty much wet for 8 months straight and have a lot of contamination. I was going to post this pad pic when I show the new sealants on the Sentra, but may as well do so now.

    I polished the hood a couple of weeks ago with a finishing polish and white pad. At the start of these tests I decon'd, compounded, and polished the hood. When I polished it again I was surprised at how dirty the pad was. Not terrible, but very visible dirt on it just after a few weeks. I assume it's due to the rain per Mike's post about it.

    This is a white pad that was stained green by some glass polish. Dirt is most noticeable on the outside edge.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    That's crazy really how much dirt is already back on the paint.

    Wonder if 476 or 915 have better gloss/shine/look after application than the 845. I'm floored with this on the wife's paint. I previously did megs #26 in liquid applied via pc on speed 3 with a 5.5 red ccs pad and thought it was ok. Can't imagine a wax or sealant meant for darker cars

    Re: Sealant comparison

    From Collinite:

    1. No.476s – most durable protection/weather defense. Most elbow grease required during application.

    2. No. 915- 2nd most durable and slightly easier than the 476s to apply/remove. No. 915 lends our warmest shine to dark tones like navy and black due to its highest concentration of rare carnauba.

    3. No. 845- easiest of the 3 to apply/remove with slightly less durability than the No. 915.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Haven't disappeared or forgotten about this. Been crazy and work and holiday stuff at home. About 3 weeks ago the Rover hood had very light rain overnight and the tape lines were clear for every section. Tried to get a pic which didn't come out very well. About 2 weeks ago I did a wash and got the same results: the 4 products on the right side are doing well, everything else is showing no sheeting.

    Goal is to get picture updates posted this weekend and get a bunch of new products on the Sentra.

    Man, I'm in Beaverton and feel you...although, this week has been so nice, just too cold to do any detailing work on the outside.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    It's been cold here the last few weeks. Not as cold as many of you, but too cold to be working with water outside.



    Put 6 more sealants on the Sentra hood. It got polished a few weeks ago and has been out in the rain. Before applying the sealants I prepped with N-914 at 8:1 and then washed twice with N-914 at Rinseless.

    The two mystery sealants came from a pro here (most of you would know him.) Garage was about 58 degrees when they were applied. It went down to 54 overnight and will be about 60 mid-day today. These will cure in the garage for 30 hour or more. I have several more products to try - will get them on the Sentra roof when I can find time.




    Rover update: I washed it with Reset them put the hose to it. Note that it was ~30 degrees out and water was moving slowly. I didn't see any ice, but temp may be a factor.

    As soon as I took the water off it this happened. Not subtle at all. The 845 is way ahead of the others right now.


    Hard to see in this picture that FK1000, Track Claw, and DG 111 are still working but have slowed down relative to 845. I need to try this again when it's not below freezing.


    Sonax PNS still hanging in there. Almost on par with FK1000 and DG 111.

    Re: Sealant comparison

    Thanks for the update. CG V07 likely won't make it a week in your environment. In Sunny So Cal weather, it didn't last at all for me! One try. That's all the chance I gave it (after trying CG Butter Wax that lasted less than a week).

    I'm curious as to how long those mystery ones will last in your environment
