Nano Series Home Application Sealant Kit - Description
Anyone who has bought a new car over the last few years will have been recommended a ´never have to polish your car again´ coating, at typically £250 to over £400 depending on how prestigious the marque.
Ripoff No. 1 - the sheer cost of this. No wonder many customers decline and call us for advice about more traditional waxes.
Then there´s rip-off No.2 - the dealer will apply the same product to a BMW or a Ford of equal size but charge you more where they perceive you have deeper pockets.
They offer this product as margins on new cars are so thin - the same reason you are offered ´Gap Protection´ insurance and optional extras. Simply, they have to make some money somewhere.
Rip Off No.3 is that the ´warranty´ is only backed if you use their supplied shampoo, which you will inevitably run out of and if you can prove you have washed it regularly using it. Which of course you can´t, hence its a worthless warranty.
So what is this miracle coating ? Well, most dealerships buy from the same small number of manufacturers, one of whom produces a product we have been testing for 3 years. Its undoubtedly all very clever chemistry, and the best thing about it is, anyone can apply it. No special training or equipment is required. And if you´re doing it yourself, you´ll take a lot more care than the ´paid by the hour ´ valeters round the back who sometimes do this in 20 minutes.
And the really good news ? We can supply you with DEALERSHIP QUALITY product complete with both steps of the system, with applicator pads and microfibre polishing cloths, for as little as £29.99. We´ll not kid you that you´ll never have to polish your car again, as this sealant does have a life of 2-3 years, but if you use a good, pH neutral shampoo and wash the car regularly yourself at home, it will last that long. Use commercial car washes or ´hand wash for £5´ places who use truck washing degreasers and it won´t. But at least you know.
More about this - and please excuse the science The first step is to cleanse the cars paintwork with the Primer. No real effort required, but wipe on, massage over the bodywork and buff off when it starts to haze. You will need approx 50ml for a Corsa-sized car. This product cures and bonds to the paintwork creating a layer than is receptive to the nano-particles (i.e. molecular sized) of the Gloss TopCoat Sealant. We´ve adopted this naming convention as any DIYer will understand it.
Once that´s done, and allow an hour or so for a small car, you will need to apply the actual Sealant. Application and usage is exactly the same, although you can use a polishing machine to do it too but its not vital. Allow to dry. That´s it.
Your car will now resist acid rain, bird mess, tree sap, and shrug off dirt. This makes washing incredibly easy as dirt cannot bond to the porous lacquer but must try to stick to this extremely hard new coating.
Maintenance We always recommend using anything except a brush or ordinary carwash sponge, and drying with either a really good, clean chamois or microfibre drying towel. For shampoo, you can use our ´made for purpose´ Cherry Sealant Maintenance Shampoo, which will typically make up 25 wash buckets worth, or any good shampoo.
A few extra points: You can use it on any age of car If you clay bar the paintwork first you won´t seal in tar spots, tree sap and other debris that makes paintwork less than glass-smooth.
If you have surface swirls or scratches you will need to polish them out or seal them in. Consider this as to remove this bonded on coating will require skilled machine polishing with abrasives.
The finish this product produces will be bright and shiny, particularly if you have taken care in preparation and application, but may lack the warmth of good waxes on certain darker colours. You can therefore wax over the top, though as this is designed to shrug off dirt wax wont bind very well and durability will be poor. Putting wax underneath will definitely not work.
This product is entirely suitable for all paint surfaces on cars, boats, motorhomes or caravans, motorcycles and quad bikes. So it´s perfect for steel, aluminium or GRP panels, with 2 pack, Gelcoat or standard solid or lacquered finishes.
So, in 2-3 hours, or a little more if you take your time, you´ll save yourself, on a very conservative basis, £200 plus, have a much better finish and the satisfaction that you have done something worthwhile yourself and avoided multiple rip-offs.
Warranty We have watched the market for 3 years and decided not to offer a warranty as its totally dependent on you following prescribed procedures and also gives a false sense of invincibility for your car. But if you are unhappy with durability and have looked after your car, then we will happily discuss alternatives with you if you feel this has not worked for you.

Excellent product by Steve Naylor, Bedfordshire, 07 November 2016
One kit is enough to treat two medium/large sized cars, which is brilliant value - I treated my Mazda 6 estate in 2015 and my Golf Estate a few weeks ago.
It is a brilliant product but does require a few hours and half decent weather to apply properly. As noted in another review, ideally you need to apply this to contaminant-free paintwork. My Golf is new out of the factory so applying the nano coatings was a doddle.
The coatings are easy to apply and buff off, but for best results allow for three passes - one primer, two sealant. As noted in the instructions, allow 20 mins for the primer to harden before applying the two coats of sealant (I used the time to treat my interior with a fabric protector).
I used microfibre pads to apply, using ultrasoft mf cloths to buff off between coats.
Paintwork is definitely left protected - you can tell from the beading (not as strong as some waxes btw) and the way that grime rinses off. I also applied coats to my alloy wheels just for the hell of it.
Very highly recommended (and relatively easy to apply).
Nissan X-trail detail top coat - excellent by M.prescott, Kent, 27 August 2015
Following 7 years of wear to my X-Trail's paintwork, I gave it a professional detail. I machine polished back the lacquer and removed all the swirls and scratches. I then applied the Race Glaze nano coat in favour over the usually used carnauba wax. It has lasted very very well, still beading like it's just been applied over a year later. It has outperformed the Gard-X which I applied in similar circumstances to my wife's Volvo. Maintenance is also good, I have complimented it with the cherry nano shampoo. As is normal when applying these sealants, make sure the paintwork is contaminant free before applying and follow the instructions for a lasting finish.
