Sonax Spray and Seal Review and How To...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS6AJfmFSp4

We are excited to tell you that we have tested out Sonax Spray and Seal and we are loving it. We have found Spray and Seal to be a great product to add to your routine maintenance. We have used gallons of the product in our rigorous testing and this has proven to be an easy to use product with great gloss and durability of up to 3 months. The water beading behavior is much like Sonax Polymer Net Shield, which we believe to be one of the best beading products in the industry. Spray and Seal has a a great just waxed feel to it, missing in the Polymer Net Shield and Brilliant Shine Detailer. Spray and Seal can be used to boost your coated, sealed, or waxed vehicles. This can also be used as a stand alone product as well. We recommend everyone to give this one a go.

What Sonax says:

SONAX Spray and Seal - Instant Shine Coating is a great compliment to any car enthusiasts' product arsenal. The easy-to-use formulation incorporates a unique Hybrid Polymer Technology that provides up to 3 months protection and generates excellent hydrophobic properties. After the car is washed and while it is still wet, simply spray entire car with the product and rinse. Completely dry all areas affected with a clean microfiber towel.

Direction for use:
- Wash vehicle and rinse thoroughly
- Shake bottle before use and turn the nozzle to open.
- Evenly spray the sealant on the wet vehicle (approx 4-6 sprays per 4 ft section).
- Rinse immediately with plenty of clean water and dry the vehicle.
- Dry the vehicle - Remove any leftover remnants with a microfiber towel.

Product Attributes:
- Spray on, rinse off - and it's sealed!
- Quick and easy during the car wash
- Enhances the color depth and provides a mirror like shine
- Impressive water and dirt repellent effect in no time at all
- works on cars with out any protection
- works on cars with sealant and waxes
- works on cars with ceramic coating
- works on cars with paint protection film

Please Note:
Do not use on hot surfaces. Do not apply in direct sunlight. Do not allow to dry. Always give special attention to the seams of the vehicle while rinsing product thoroughly.

Is the toweling part necessary for the product to work? I wash rinse and blow dry the entire car.

Yes, you don't want any residue left behind.

So I'm not a detailing guy. Prior to my GTI, I've mainly taken my cars to drive thru car washes with an occasional optional spray wax if I felt like splurging. I'm taking better care of my GTI's paint job and have hand rubbed sealant on it twice. But it's a pain in the ass and unfortunately I'm disappointed with how fragile my car's paint job is-- as many others have also complained. The paint is thin and brittle and riddled with rock chips on the hood and bumper.



That being said, since my paint job is far from being perfect, I don't feel motivated to put in all that labor of hand rubbing and buffing a sealant to make it look like a show car. I'm mainly concerned about protecting the paint job from the elements. Will this product protect the paint well by itself or do I still have to do the traditional wax on wax off every now and then?

you can use this product as a stand alone product so no need to wax or seal over this.
