Default The Incredible Shine & Protection of a $20 Sealant




I think we can all agree that we only want the absolute best wax or sealant for our vehicle, whether it's an award winning show car or a daily driver. However, you don't always have to break the bank to get a great shine and long lasting durable protection when it comes time to protect your vehicle.





Detailer's Pro, a manufacturer of American Made Car Care Products, has been around for more than ten years now and is known for making top performing products at a price that doesn't break the bank. Detailer's Pro literally makes a product for every square inch of your car, inside and out.




If you're familiar with Detailer's Pro Poli-Coat Paint Sealant, you know how easy it is to apply and how it wipes off effortlessly. A little bit of product goes a long way and the sealant is a pleasure to use with a Dual Action Polisher. Poli-Coat also contains a built in bonding agent, which means it self preps the paint. A built in bonding agent maximizes durability of the sealant. Last, but certainly not least, Poli-Coat leaves behind a super slick finish along with an awesome shine.

Poli-Coat was the only product used on this Audi TT to amp up the shine and provide durable protection. No pre-wax polish or high end carnauba wax, just Poli-Coat. The pictures speak for themselves.

My weapon of choice for applying any wax or sealant is a Porter Cable 7424xp along with a Lake Country 5.5" Hydro-Tech Crimson Finishing Pad. This pad is super soft, but thanks to its closed cell foam core, it's firm enough to withstand added pressure while buffing and keeps most of the product on the face of the pad.










For all the tight spots I always grab a Griot's Garage Mini 3" Polisher. This mini polisher is perfect for polishing A-Pillars and other tight areas where the Porter Cable is too large.








If you're looking for a sealant that provides an excellent shine, ease of use, and doesn't break the bank - Detailer's Pro Poli-Coat Paint Sealant is what you've been looking for.

The car was in excellent shape and required no correction work so I went straight to applying the Poli-Coat after giving it a quick waterless wash.

So a sealer is used AFTER the wax is this correct?

IE: Wash, claybar, wash again, swirl removal in steps of products used, wax, then seal?

Just want to make sure I understand..

Thanks,

No, otherwise the sealant would bond to the wax and not the paint, IIRC.

Some folks like to layer different waxes/sealants to achieve a certain look or for other reasons they feel will help enhance the finish, durability of the layered products, etc. It is not something that is required or necessarily a benefit (really depends on the product being used and your intent/goal). Personally, I prefer to stick with one product (on an application) that will provide me with most (if not all) of the characteristics I'm looking for in an LSP (last step product; wax/sealant/coating). ....QD's/QW's aside used during maintenance.

….it really depends. Products like Optimum Opti-Seal are really quite “friendly” when it comes to layering over existing products (glazes, waxes, etc.) without issue. Here’s what “Dr. G” had to say on the subject regarding OS:

Quote:
Opti-Seal is a highly concentrated formula containing sealant polymers dissolved in a solvent. Once it is applied to any surface, it will bond to it and cross-links fully within 12 hours. ...

If there is any wax on the surface, Opti-Seal will dissolve it and the polymers will go to the surface and the wax will migrate to the top. This is due to the difference in the surface tension of wax and sealant.
