Well Iíve been looking at this product for a while now. Was pretty skeptical at first. I finally figured screw it, Iíll try it. Now I am by no means any type of detailing expert. I never knew how to properly wash and take care of a vehicle until I started reading this forum. Much thanks for all the good info.

I am not trying to promote this product or sell anyone, just thought I would review it with updates for members to decide. I dont expect this product to be any better than a good sealant or wax. Iíve had great results with a light polish/sealant/wax combo. I mainly wanted to see if it saved me time.

When I recieved this product, my truck was pretty dirty. I handwashed it, claybared, and used a light polish to get rid of a few swirl marks. I then washed with dawn soap to remove the sealant. I applied three light coats to everything but the tires about 24 hours apart. The first thing I noticed is how shiny and smooth it makes the paint. Not necessarily any better than wax, but it does seem to make the paint more reflective, especially on black. It also seems to resist fingerprints better than before. Iíve only had the product on for one week, but I recently took a 300 mile round trip camping. I came back with a pretty dirty truck. No mud, but I did have a lot of dust, bugs, etc. So far Iím pretty happy with it, I simply did a quick wash using only water and a microfiber. The bugs wiped off easily. I probably spent about 45 minutes total. Most of that was spent drying the truck. Topcoat claims this product can last about 3 months. Time will tell. Heres a few pics after washing today.

Looks good, but 3 months for a sealant isn't very long... There are other products that will last longer and require less work to apply.

Does the sealant require a lot of work to apply?

No--it applies just like wax. Surface preparation is alway the key.

You just spray on, wipe off, then lightly buff it. I have to say, i’ve never used anything that made black this shiny/reflective.

So far im pretty impressed with the product. Itís been on for 1 month now. The only thing iíve done to the truck is spray it off with water at the car wash about once a week. I can get bugs off with just water, no rubbing, etc. I then follow up with a no spot rinse. No drying, etc. No more product applied since my initial first 3 coats. Going to see if truck stays this shiny/ easy to clean for 3 months like they advertise. Time will tell.

If you want expensive check out CQuartz, 22PLE or Optimum Gloss Coat
