    Re: Been thinking to much

    What types of products would you consider to be ‘ceramic coating spray’ versus (SiO2?) ‘spray sealant’?

    I assume you are categorizing your SiO2 Spray Sealant as a spray sealant. What are you currently using after WG Coating Wash?

    It's all in the polishing my friend. Like you, I like to try different products. My paint is so protected it's bullet proof..

    Car Pro's Finest 1 yr. ago. Various spray coating including Reload, Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating and the latest 303 Graphene spray coating.

    Re: Been thinking to much

    What coating are you using?

    Regardless what spray you end up with in the end, I might recommend switching between coating wash once a month and silica spray once a month. Sometimes too many toppers can lose the clarity of the surface. And I would bet that your silica sprays and WG Coating Wash are leaving down very similar protection which may be building up.

    I’ll wait for more responses before suggesting any other sprays.

    IMO:
    In this case ”should” should not be the
    definitive word. Instead: can; will; why not...
    is more appropriate...amiright?

    •If WF stands for Wolfgang...then,
    I’ll say why not go with:
    -Wolfgang’s Über Ceramic Spray Coating
    {used to “boost”/(enhance) existing Coatings}

    •Or (and speaking of “boost”):
    -BLACKFIRE’s Coating Booster
    (why, its very name bellows “boost”.)



    Have FUN!!

    Been thinking to much

    Plenty of time...

    When the quarantine started, I learned how to do ceramic coatings.
    You could try a long-term coating on your car.

    I used CarPro Cquartz UK 3.0 and topped it with Gliss. My car stays cleaner longer and when it rains, it gets about 70% clean on its own. I used to really stress out when it got dirty and was washing it once a week. Now, I have trouble finding motivation to clean it.

    In my opinion, that freshly polished shine will get locked in for a couple years. Even when my car is dirty, it still shines. What a conundrum.

    Re: Been thinking to much

    To me the best SiO2 Spray Coating (on paper, I havent use it yet) is the WG Ceramic Spray Coating.
    They claim (like it matters) 1 yera durability and extremely hydrophobic. Lorch did 4 durability videos on this product and it seems to be amazing. Interesting thing that you DO NOT need to throw away your towel or applicator after using it, different than Adams Spray Coating, Adams Graphene Spray Coating, Tac Systems Moonlight or TLC Black Ice (sorry for mentioning those but are the only direct contenders that I can think of), those you DO NEED to throw away towels and applicator and durability/hydrophobic is similar to the WG

    Do the WG Uber Coating Wash every other wash. Hit the car with WG Uber Ceramic Spray or WG Uber Silica Spray every other month. Anymore than that and you are running up against diminishing returns.

    Re: Been thinking to much

    want to thank everyone for their response...I didn't realize putting a fresh coat of sealant on every week was a bad idea....what about if I use a spray sealant or spray coating once a month?...thanks again...want to say my car sits outside 24/7
