We are asked this question regularly, so here is the answer to make your choice easier in future when you want to enhance and protect your car.

The difference between glaze, wax and sealant?

A glaze is typically to enhance shine and wetness, and to fill in fine scratches and swirls. Essentially, a glaze is a substance that is applied to the surface of a vehicle in order to fill and obscure any small imperfections or scratches that are visible. Applying a glaze to a vehicle’s surface makes it appear shinier and more vivid. If you wanted to use a glaze, you would top it with a non-cleaning sealant or wax to provide real paint protection.

By contrast, a wax is a layer of oil-heavy product that is applied to the vehicle surface after polishing and glazing. Wax acts as a protective coating, most Carnauba waxes only last around 3 to 6 weeks, where as some synthetic waxes can last up to 12 months.

A sealant will give you protection. Because sealants are lab-made, they are designed to provide a higher level of durability than wax products. A good quality Sealant offer the best protection and shine and can last from 4 to 6 months or more .

How to choose:- if you prefer a lasting protection with a beautiful shine, go with the Sealant. If you prefer the unmatched warm glow created by a natural carnauba wax product, go with the car wax.
If you want to have a quick fix to hide fine scratches and swirls and do not need it to last long, use a glaze.
