    BLACKFIRE AIO

    BLACKFIRE AIO doesnít seem to very durable but I have great paint correction success with it. It doesnít make sense to have to strip the sealant after correction so Iím wondering if BLACKFIRE polish is equivalent without the sealant? Thanks

    AIO or cleaner waxes are not known for long term protection. All products of this type are best with a regular topper used to keep that shine rolling on your car. They do what is expected without the extra time and labor that multi-step correction brings to everyone's mind.

    My opinion only~!

    All AIO's have some protection....

    Blackfire has a good cut and good protection---up to 3 months give or take.

    You can add a sealant or a wax on top of an AIO.

    I'm sure it will last quite a bit longer if you top it with a spray wax after every wash.

    Has Blackfire AIO been reformulated? Finished one qt that I have had for several months and opened one received last week. Could just be my imagination but it seems that it has less cut, takes longer to haze and has a different smell. Maybe I didn’t shake it well enough.

    Love the correction the Blackfire AIO has!! I top it with Collinite 845. Gonna be hard to go ceramic with this look on my 2020 Stelvio Quadrofoglio! Deep, warm and pure. The AIO made some nasty waterspots disappear.

    I would say, "yes" and the polish being dedicated may work a little better. Personally, there are better polishes out there compared to BlackFire Polish but your question is answered. Best of luck!!!

    Just apply a spray wax after, turtle wax seal and shine, turtle wax ice spray wax, duragloss aqua wax,eagle one wipe and shine ,and for a little more money groits 3 and 1 ceramic. You dont have to spend a lot of money to have a good looking car.

    Thanks and I agree! Since the original post my selection of chemicals has multiplied considerably. I still like Blackfire AIO topped with Collinite for one steps. I haven’t found anything that wipes off as easily. I recently followed Meguiars 105 with BF AIO to remove haze without causing marring on a finicky black paint. It seems like every vehicle is a puzzle to solve.

    I follow up the next day with an application of BF Si02 sealant.
