Re: Wax V Sealant V Super sealants

Whilst the lines are blurring a bit, I feel that certain distinctions remain. The old wax and sealants are protection and enhancement product, the new 'super' sealants are more protection (and rely on the underlying surface having suitable appearance).

These days, a professional 'wax' is highly unlikely to be without sealant component. Wax in isolation simply cannot compete with the characteristics endowed by some of the recent technologies. Sealants are extremely 'tunable' products and we can make them look wax like by fiddling with the formulation, these days it seems that the tendency is to do just that whereas previously other considerations were key. Super sealants are a bit of a difficult area thanks to the marketeers. Some of those noted above as being 'super' are merely regular sealants tuned towards durability. This is also partly responsible for the impression that 'super' sealants are getting easier to apply. The reality is that super sealants are not getting easier to apply, just your average super sealant is nowhere near as super as the marketeers would have you believe. This is a bit of a shame because some of the superior products get overshadowed by much cheaper alternatives which are pumped with marketing testosterone.

In spite of the little rant, my favourite products are the advanced 'normal' sealants. It can give the appearance of wax without the hassle and limitation of durability, it can give much of the durability of a super sealant without the compromise on appearance and the extra difficulty of application. Yes, it won't last just as long as the latter, but most of us are enthusiasts... I find it hard to wash a car without wanting to add a quick layer of something new - so I don't really want something that lasts forever!
