    What is liquid glass ?

    I am new to the forum...not so new to caring for my vehicles ( just now healthy enuf to jump back in ) and this forum has been a amazing source of knowledge ! Thank you for that.I used to use and still have a "old" product called "liquid glass" I have not seen or heard any mention of this vintage product on the forum but I know it leaves my paint work very very glossy and is super easy to apply and remove ? I am curious....what is this stuff ? wax...polish...sealant ? I wonder...can I still use this stuff safely ? I would welcome feedback and or opinions...Thanks to all who have responded and all who have helped me without even knowing that ya'll were helping

    I believe they are no longer in business as of 2018. All you can do is try it on an inconspicuous spot to see if it's still usable.

    Reminds me of a product I used way back when... And as my memory serves, it did produce a really nice gloss.

    Liquid Glass was the first LSP I used. Nice gloss.The Corvette people used to swear by it.
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    It would be considered a sealant. Decent stuff back in the day.

    Re: What is liquid glass ?

    Many products way back were a little bit over-hyped. But not bad products per se. Liquid Lustre, PolyGlycoat, Turtle Wax, Rain Dance, Nu-Finish, etc., I could probably mention another 2 dozen products if I sat here and mulled long enough.

    What else back then was there? LOL

    Some lasted a few weeks, and some, like a lot of Meguiars products that I found disappointment with way back in the 80's didn't last two car washes in my experience. Such was mostly silicones, fine for a garage queen. No real world protection though.

    Today, even the seemingly old lowly brand of Turtle Wax, Mothers, and many others are actually making much better and pretty darn good products.
