    BLACKFIRE BlackICE Hybrid Montan Sealant question

    I have been a wet ice over fire fan for a couple years and wonder if I would get a deeper shine using BLACKFIRE BlackICE Hybrid Montan Sealant on my graphite colored Accord.
    Thoughts?

    Thoughts?
    •Darker vehicles’ panels surfaces can
    get quite hot out under the Sun.
    •Montan Wax does share several
    characteristics with Carnauba Wax
    •IMO: When it comes to describing car
    paints’ luminosity: Shine and/or Gloss
    are nearly interchangeable.


    However, from my experience:
    -Montan Wax’s ability to maintain the same
    “glossiness factor” as Carnauba Wax—for the
    same period of time—isn’t one of those shared
    characteristics.

    -[I.E.: Montan Wax, to me, undergoes a more
    noticeable gloss damaging chemical change...
    (when trying to endure the same high-heating/
    high-temperature ranges)...than does Carnauba.]

    ****************************************

    Suggestion:
    •Clean/polish/prepare a horizontal panel
    as you would prior to any LSP application.
    •Divide this panel in halves.
    •Apply the “Fire over Ice” to one half;
    the Hybrid Montan Sealant to the other.

    -That way:
    You’ll have a more up-close-and-personal
    experience, from which you can then make
    a best-for-your-scenario judgement.

    I doubt it. The BF was over the BF sealant looks better (to me) than Blackice.

    Yeah, I don’t know about deeper, BlackIce might be more durable but it’s hard to compare looks.

    I guess part of me wanted to eliminate a step if possible. I hate buying something different if the benefit isn’t any greater.

    I actually think this wax is awesome. It looks fantastic and has a bit better durability than the standard BF wax.

    BlackIce would create a very nice, durable protection with only one step, but an extra item to buy when your existing arsenal probably looks as nice.
