    Are there any spray sealants that are worth it?

    So I'm still teetering back and forth on protection. Ceramic requires a decent amount of prep and I don't have a garage. So the cure time might get askewed with morning dew etc. So I'm kinda ruling out ceramics.

    Also water spots - the truck sits outside rain or shine, water dries on it etc.

    I bought the new Wolfgang sio2 paint sealant to use this year...

    But I'm thinking of spray sealants might be better then a liquid paste. Turtle wax seal and shine seems like it's getting a lot of crazy good results. Lasts months easily etc. Also the gloss is a lot better than pastes / liquid sealants.

    Does anyone know of a spray sealant that's worth using or provides good longevity, gloss?

    There seems to be soooo many out there now even with meguiars hybrid ceramic sprays, Griots 3 in 1 ceramic sprays, Wolfgangs SiO2 Uber sealant etc.

    Thoughts?

    So far I’ve gotten good protection and gloss at five months out of 303 graphene, same out of blackfire SIO2 spray….

    Since you have Wolfgang Sio2 paint sealant, I would use Wolfgang Sio2 silica spray on top of the sealant or as a stand alone product. I have used this combo on my red Hyundai Sonata and the paint absolutely glows. Great combo.

    •I do.
    -Optimum Car Wax (OCW): it’s actually a
    Sealant that has patented UV protection.

    Thanks, what's your longevity? Can you link me to the one you used?

    Is Sonax Polymer Net Shield still considered good? Does it protect much vs. wax etc?

    Re: Are there any spray sealants that are worth it?

    I applied 303 graphene in Nov and it did the job the whole winter. In February I did a wash inside a shop and sprayed Griot's Garage foaming surface prep and when I sprayed THAT off the beading was still VERY good. Some say it was my coating doing that but when washing the ES with WW & RW's when I could during that time before it was making clean up VERY easy.

    I use this about three years ago and would never use it again. It was real grippy to get off , it was a hard buff off, it wasn’t worth my time. So many other ones are so much easier with equally good gloss and protection, just my two cents

    This is the golden age of spray protection, there are many that last as long or longer than the liquid sealants. Instead of looking at longevity alone look at it for return of investment, way less time applying, less tools/pads and towels, adds to the plastic trim instead of worrying about staying the trim and if you use it as a drying aid (maybe not for the ceramic sprays) and you keep adding a little protection on each wash

    Re: Are there any spray sealants that are worth it?

    I used seal & shine once..... i gave it away. Left streaks, felt greasy.... beads were all weird shaped.... not a fan.

    In a Griots Ceramic 3-1 thread I did a head to head and Griots walk the dog all over SNS.

    If not wanting to spend Polish Angel or IGL Premier money i would say to me, Griots 3-1 is the best.
