Trying to find the best car paint sealant is like trying to hit a moving target in the dark! It is an area full of bad information that is continuously spread around from one misinformed person to another.
Not to put the entire blame onto the misinformed public, but we are forever at the mercy of marketing and advertising that has one agenda only; to sell product!
Whether you are looking for the best rated car wax, or the best car paint sealant, unless you know the difference between these two very distinctly different products, you will be making misinformed decisions. I want you to become part of a select group of people called; the informed!
Question and Answers
Let me take you through a question and answer session that will leave you a much more informed decision maker so that you will get the desired results that you are looking for when it comes to the beauty and protection that is possible with the right car paint sealant.
We Understand the Differences Darren, But What Do You Recommend?
I am glad I got you to ask, as I have strong opinions that are based on (2) specific reasons:
I will also add that what I recommend are not the only products that work, but simply a way for me to simplify this area of car care for you, rather than bury you with so many choices you will be stricken with anxiety! So use any of the secure links below and get some of the exact products I use professionally to deliver superior results to an overly entitled and finicky group of people called my customers!
The Best Car Wax
Paste Wax for the Base Coat
I will start with one of my all time favorites when it comes to a quality paste wax. While you could spend hundreds of dollars on a single tub of wax, not only is this unrealistic for most, but also unnecessary! This quality paste wax will be a perfect foundation of looks and protection.
Spray Wax Simplicity
Spray waxes are the result of advanced chemical engineering. Probably the most significance of these new age wonders is the ability to wax everything; paint, glass, chrome, and even black trim pieces. Now you can have the ease of a spray wax, with the time saving ability to wax everything on your car.
Professional Car Paint Sealant
Please Note: The following products from the Meguiar's Mirror Glaze professional line is professional grade products, which means you will not be able to find at a local retail outlet. So don't leave here thinking you can purchase from a local store in your area.
Liquid Polymer Technology
As we have learned, liquid polymers represent the ultimate in protection and durability. The bonds created by synthetic polymers are much stronger than the chemical bonds created by natural wax based products. There is a slight compromise on visual results when using on dark colored paint. While you can get the best of both worlds with the Ultimate Paste Wax above, liquid polymer sealants are the highest levels of protection available. These liquid polymer sealants are ideal for large to do items such as boats, RV's, and planes, but still completely acceptable for cars if you decide on that route.
Professional Spray Car Paint Sealant
If you are going with the use of the liquid polymers, then I recommend the use of a polymer spray detailer that is ideally suited for use with the liquid polymer, and excellent as a car paint sealant extender.
Car Paint Sealant Tips from DarrenIf you are sickly dealing with any medium to dark colored car paint, I would recommend the Meguiar's Ultimate Paste wax and spray wax combo. Use the paste as a base coat every 3-6 months, and use the Ultimate Spray Wax as a wax extender, and any other time you want that fresh car waxed look. I personally use every week on my black cars as it is just that easy and looks that great; SERIOUSLY!
If you are dealing with a boat, plan, RV, or light colored car, then I would go with the liquid polymer #21 as a base coat application. Use every 4-9 months depending on the conditions of your world. Use the spray polymer sealant any time you are motivated after washing, to create that fresh wax feel and look whether we are talking boat, RV, or plane. So easy to use, you might surprise yourself how often you are willing to wax; or seal in this case.
Car Paint Sealant SummaryAs you can see, your search for a car paint sealant is generally over-simplified to the point where most do not understand exactly what they are looking for. Now that you understand the difference between a car paint sealant and a natural car wax, you can go out and make informed decisions; much better than the misinformed decisions we often make! And as a professional, it is note worthy to know that professionally, I keep every form of wax and sealant product available so that I may respond to the specifics of the moment; including those moments when I am out of time and energy, and I still insist on creating that fresh waxed look and feel. Now with my professional car paint sealant tips, you are an informed and armed person ready to produce greater results, no matter what life throws your way!
