    SiO2 Ceramic Spray Sealant comparison test

    I figured “why not?” after correcting the X5 M. Roof was coated, polished with WG Finishing Glaze, then wiped with Kleen-Strip Prep-All a few times for prep, then CarPro Essence with Gloss Pads..

    The two coats of applications for each product occurred on 6/10/20 and 6/11/20.

    Front Roof - The Easy Applicators:







    Middle Roof - The Coating Lite Wannabes


    Near-Rear Roof - The Maintenance Sprays



    NOTE: The far back roof/spoiler is wearing KK Infinite Wax like the rest of the vehicle... not part of this spray sealant test.


    Fast forward 3 weeks to 7/1/20, after being a garage queen with occasional travel, the car had its first bath with CarPro Reset. The short videos after washing don’t show much to takeaway besides strong properties from all products. No rough weather yet.

    Front:

    Middle-Back:

    I plan to add my application experiences soon, despite being applied to very small areas.

    I’ll add occasional updates. I may add a larger field onto another roof as part of a separate, parallel test since there were some I wasn’t able to fit on here (GG 3-in-1, DPC Armor, Overcoat, some Polish Angel).

    Thanks for reading.

    Ya know, I thought of you specifically when I knew I had a lack of space and omitted 3-in-1 due to it still had the seal on the top. I could have used the far back spoiler area but water acts so different on that angle.

    I havenít used nowhere near the amount youíve used but itís a winner. Itís what i use and recommend for all my friends cars. Mine still seeís cosmic mainly but for price and performance considered it might be the best.

    Re: SiO2 Ceramic Spray Sealant comparison test

    Update 7/9/20 (1 month):

    Only about 1 week of not being a garage queen, but it was a week of low to mid-90s highs, so that counts for something. No further washes besides the one posted above.

    Reference:




    Below is video of the first rain the vehicle has endured, after a week+ of drought.
    YouTube


    Since videos donít always come out great, below are some pictures all taken within a ~20 second time period:








    And then one pic once the rain stopped:




    Only a few takeaways for me:

    1) Feynlab isnít looking as good as the other 3 heavy hitters, particularly compared to IGL which some have wondered how they compare. Iím still rooting for Feynlab due to price, maybe it will age well.

    2) Although the front roof canít be assessed in these pics, WG CSC, as seen on the strip on the right side of the moonroof seems to still be a little better behavior than VS1. Nothing major, but a slight lead especially when viewed in person.

    Everything else seems like good performing, fairly new spray sealant performance to me.

    As for an informal update, Feynlab is still looking the least impressive of the heavy hitters in its row, and it’s not even doing as well as it’s adjacent counterpart (Remax).

    Of this current test, Feynlab is the surprise and will probably warrant a good shake and a new test spot somewhere.

    I`d like to see this type of test with some larger panels and a taped control strip for a reference.

    Re: SiO2 Ceramic Spray Sealant comparison test

    Nice thread, great comparisons.
    Do you notice a significant difference between these coatings and the paste waxes, so far?
    I recently read a thread of your comparing waxes (very nice, btw) and it does not seem like you get much more (longevity, self cleaning ability) from these coating. But maybe I am missing something. Or maybe I just like waxes.
