    Would you happen to know how this sealant compares to Crystal Seal? Is it way better in terms of durability? And can you apply it to smooth trim and plastics like headlights/taillights?

    Re: Blackfire si02 spray after 2 months

    Very similar to the crystal seal. I was an avid user of Crystal for years, and I'd still be using it except it's discontinued. I like the SIO2 from black flower, but I don't think it's any better than the Crystal seal. I really like both. Just like crystal seal, you can do all your trim and durability is about the same

    The only real difference is that I can see, and this is very minor, is the SIo2 does not flash off as fast and therefore you can see where you've been, which sometimes with Crystal Was hard.

    Again just my opinion, we all see things differently.

    Thanks Glen. I too like crystal seal...and was shocked to find out they discontinued it...wondered if the newer stuff was truly an improvement...

    The durability on this stuff is top shelf worthy. I've been amazed. Not overly glossy, but the beading lasts forever.

    Re: Blackfire si02 spray after 2 months

    I normally "wax" with speed then top with Colonite 476, can I just use this like a "spray wax" either after the wash or after waxing with my normal combo?

    Researching going "coatings" as I'd really like to extend my protection & wash intervals, as the speed/476 combo lasts about 2 months with very little contaminates imbedded but I have lots of square footage to maintain and it's a never ending loop of washing & waxing all year round with all the vehicles, trailer, & boat.

    You can use this as a spray wax after washes with your normal routine. I’ve heard it doesn’t last as long on wax, but should help longevity overall regardless.

    If you go the coating route then this should top well on most of them.
