For an off the shelf sealant - it's hard to beat Meguiar's Ultimate Wax as an all around sealant. It DOES NOT stain , is easy to apply / remove , gives decent protection and lasts at least 2 ~ 3 months - lastly the price is in line ... One of the few sealants also noted as being used by pro detailers and I can pick it up at any WM ! ... Perhaps best around , easy to obtain paint sealant (and ditto for the Meguiar's ultimate polish ) .

have there been any 3rd party review comparisons?


These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Based on repeated firsthand experience...we'd agree. It's one of the easiest to apply and gets some of the best results. They claim it lasts up to 6 months...but I never make it that long without doing another full detail (therapeutic grin).

Recently tried (for the first time) the Chemical Guys Hybrid V7 Optical Select High Gloss Spray Sealant & Quick Detailer on top of it...and the shine is stunning...now have 2 layers of protection (including UV) as well.

The owner at the nearby hand car wash says my SUV is "at the top of all the vehicles he sees come in for a wash". He's asked me what products I use...and now he's using it too.

I've been a staunch Meguiars fan for many years but just recently applied this to both my Hondas - Chemical Guys Polymer Sealant

The reviews say it should last 7 months, I'll post after 6 months and tell you how it lasted. It was very easy to put on/take off and the luster was exceptional.

No thanks....I'll stick with NuFinish since it's cheaper and lasts longer.

If you've found a product that you like then that's wonderful, but NuFinish is a very outdated product as this point, and the modern synthetic waxes (sealants) are top notch in terms of gloss and durability while also being easier to remove than ever before.

Classic case of "you get what you pay for" - cheap indeed. Yuck. That over-hyped gooey gunk isn't even close to Meguiar's in ease of application, easy of wipe-off, quality sealing, and avoidance of any residue.

Pro detailers have known Megiuars products do a fantastic job for years, but almost no pro detailer with a conscience would ever even consider using that orange bottle goop. Not even in the same league as Meguiar's.

Ultimate liquid streaked when I used it. Ultimate paste didn't but would stain trim if not wiped off before long. This observation was several years ago. The paste was a real pleasure in my opinion.

Mothers/Meguiar's both offer similar protection and quality when used as a complete process.
