    Agree with this, as most people I’ve read having good beading are using the system, not just the spray ceramic alone.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    Gave my gto a wash yesterday with Hyper wash. Has been a week or so since polishing and applying the tw coating.

    These are after washing and rinsing





    Seems solid. No other toppers other than a final wipe with ADG wipeout diluted to detail spray dilution.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    I wanted to add the gloss and look after the coating is INSANE. And I recall after using the P&W and 2 coats of the spray coating, the beading was great. That was BEFORE I starting using the WET WAX to maintain the look/coating. Never the less, not defending the products, but after using them I am hard pressed to find a better look, ease of application, and protection.

    Don, that`s good to know. I`ve been trying to figure this out and have read thru many questions posted at the TW website. After reading the comments, it felt like these two products were standalone and maybe not intended to be used together?? I own both - - just wasn`t certain if the spray was intended to be used on top of the polish/wax product.

    Thanks for reporting this!

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    Gee, you folks seem pretty uniformly impressed, like nobody`s dissatisfied with the stuff.

    Wonder how the durability/protection is gonna work out...like, after 6-8 months or somesuch.

    It`s designed for immediate gratification and get you to buy more of their stuff. After all its their business to sell you products and not let a bottle last 2 years.

    BTW I`m a fan.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    Rsurfer- I gather it`s not all that long-lived...but then gee, it hasn`t been around all *that* long, if people can already say something about its durability uhm..well, heh heh, guess I`m not in their Target Demographic IF it *did* (OK, "does") last a lot longer than I`m guessing that`d be great though.

    Except for Post 19. It seems some may not get the best hydrophobic but that seems to be no issue when used within a system.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    Accumulator, they (TW) contend that it should last 6 - 12 months so figure we`ll be at the shorter end of that range. The product is so new so nobody really knows yet how good it is...

    It would be a simple process for many to use and it`s priced right and they added the name "ceramic" so it`s going to have appeal to many, IMO.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    My detailer told me his rule of thumb is cut the manufacturer’s durability claim by half. So far he’s been right. I wish all companies embraced transparency like Gtechniq did with their Halo development video. They put their coating on an abrasion machine, ran 10,000 scrub cycles using a sponge and all purpose cleaner with a caustic 12 PH rating.

    110° contact angle doesn’t drop until 3000 scrubs.

    Lol. NuFinish lasts through 52 car washes according to the 30+ year old commercials.

    Those sort of tests are eye rollers. Yes it lasts for that long but how long does it last with the sun pounding on it and rain and birds and road grime....

    I`m just glad TW got their act together. Meguiars and Mother`s are asleep at the wheel.

    Re: Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray Coating

    tom p- Yeah, I for one think it`s great that TW is offering that system (which sounds like it oughta be used that way) and that it oughta be great, and not just for "average consumers".

    I`m gonna be watching for long-term updates
