    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!

    This test to compare Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus some traditional sealants. I tried to break vertical panels up into comparable groupings.
    The panels were cleaned with PBL Surface Cleansing Lotion and were squeaky clean to the touch afterwards.
    The sealants were applied on 4/24/2020 late at night. 62degF in the garage during application, temp went as low as 57degF during the night time curing. On each panel, Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant resides in the middle.

    Below are all contestants listed drivers side to passengers side:

    Hood - The OG Slicksters
    - Blackfire Sealant
    - Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant
    - Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant
    - Jescar Powerlock
    - Four Star Ultimate Paint Protectant

    - Sonax PNS
    - Finish Kare 1000p Hi Temp Paste Wax

    Front Roof - Bonus Contestants
    - Collinite 915
    - Poorboys EX-P
    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!-img_2664-jpg

    The car is still in the garage and will stay there until a minimum 24 hours cure time. I’ll post back for updates.

    Thanks for reading.


    Edit: I forgot to mention, these sealants are so amazingly slick. PNS is of course not so slick. Poxy is more smooth like a carnauba than slick. All the others feel like Beadmaker slick. Gotta love sealants if you like this kind of thing!

    Update (the next day):
    First beading shots after a night of heavy rain. Everything looks great. Sealants arenít shabby beaders, even if they donít sheet as well as ceramic-infused products. Still, PNS looks slightly nicer than the rest. WG SiO2 slightly nicer than most the sealants. But when brand new, these all look great.

    Iíll include reference shots with updates to remember what products are where.

    I then took the car on a 1.5 hour drive through heavy rain with my son (because we NEED to get out of the house and driving is the only truly mobile-quarantine thing to do these days). I mention this because Iíve been putting on 100+ miles per day on this car over the past 3 weeks due to these rides. And when there is moderate rain, we storm chase. Today there was no need to chase, itís a one-inch washout throughout the day.

    My point above is that this car doesnít just sit outside during these tests. It drives. And when possible it drives through rain, wind or snow. So consider it a mini-real life torture test as long as the country remains shut down.

    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!

    Update 5/4/20:

    Car has been driven non-stop to avoid my son and I living through mass boredom (lucky for me he loves car rides). We go storm chasing. Car has been outside at all times. Lots of rain last week. The car has gone ~1000 miles in the 11 or so days since application.

    The car has been washed twice with glossless soap. Below are hose shots showing beading/sheeting at ~2sec and ~5sec after hose spraying was stopped:

    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!-img_2764-jpg
    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!-img_2766-jpg
    Observation of sheeting performance:
    1) WG SiO2 PS
    2) Four Star UPP
    3) Jescar Powerlock
    4) WG DGPS
    5) BF Sealant

    3) Collinite 476
    4) Collinite 845
    5) FK1000p

    Observation of sheeting performance:
    1) WG SiO2 PS
    2) PBL Sealant
    3) PA Master Sealant
    4) Mckees Hi Def
    5) HD Poxy


    Front roof:
    Wolfgang SiO2 Paint Sealant versus Traditional Sealants - Test!-img_2664-jpg
    Forgot to take pics. 915 sheeting quite faster than EX-P.



    Overall thoughts on beading/sheeting combined:
    1) PNS sheets and beads best
    2) WG SiO2 sheets and beads best

    - I donít want to make bold observations about the remaining products on different sections, angles, etc., so Iíll group the remainders:

    3-7) Real good group - UPP, PBL, 476, 915, 845
    8-13) Medium group - PL, DGPS, BF, PA MS, M37 Hi Def, FK1000p
    14-15) Meh group - HD Poxy, PB EX-P

  8. Thanks Mike@DedicatedPerfection, Belo thanked for this post

    Thank you for taking the time not only to divide the car up and apply various products but also documenting and sharing with us.

    Looks like the new WG Si02 is performing admirably well.

    Whats on the X5M?

    Yeah I really like the WG SiO2... a lot. Iím actually jealous to those of you who have applied to a whole car. I donít have enough cars to have done that yet... only test panels.

    The X5M has a WG hood test and miscellaneous roof test (to re-test some products that I had odd results with recently).

    The X5M vertical panels are just a stew of different products Iím trying to use up. Each year when my winter protection degrades (Enigma Wax this year), I tend to use Hydro Blue and old spray waxes and QDs to hold me over through pollen season. Early June is when I correct and put on some summer bling protection. To answer your question, the vertical panels had Hydro Blue in March and since have a bunch of M37 Fast Wax, Trademark Extender Wax and I dry aid with Ultimate Quik Detailer.

    Thanks for setting this up. I just prepped and applied 2 coats of WG Si02 to my F150a month ago.
