It's the best sealant I've ever tried :D and here's a few I have AG SRP, Carlack, poorboys ex-p, megs nxt 2.0, Prima epic, Opti-seal.

It's very popular in the US and I've looked at a lot of different forums and haven't found a bad word said about it :cool:

This is my car done with it, and I like it so much I can't see myself going back to wax.Image

Time will tell how long it will last but some say a year :shock:

It's very easy to apply and buff off and it doesn't have any problems with temperature unlike some sealants :wink:
It's only down full for some is that it doesn't fill swrils, so you must have good paint work.

This is a good write up by Dave KG....a man who knows a lot when it comes to detailing .

well i think i may say im a duragloss fan. For me the shampoo (901), the cleanser/sealant (601+111) and the liquid wax (aquawax) are top quality products...

Started to Duragloss the 200SX today.

Washed the car with Duragloss Car-wash Concentrate (smells like cherries), dried with help of Duragloss Water Spot Remover (smells like lamb & mint crisps :roll: ), then used Duragloss Pre-Cleaner No. 2, applied via the G220 on a Sonus SFX-1 pad and buffed off. Then applied Duragloss Swirl Mark Remover (smells like banana milkshake) via the G220 on a Sonus SFX-2 pad and buffed off. Did have a few problems removing this, smears and streaking :cry:

Moved onto the Duragloss Polish bonding Agent, applied with a microfibre pad, to the entire car and left to haze, then applied Duragloss TPP (Total Performance Polish) with a microfibre pad, directly onto the bonding agent. Applied to half the car, then buffed off with a microfibre bonnet, on a SFX-1 pad, on the G220 and then did the other half of the car, the same way.

Weather permitting :? I hope to get at least another coat of Duragloss TPP (Total Performance Polish) on tomorrow and try to get at least one coat of Duragloss Clear Coat Polish on as well.

I found the 671 swirl remover smeared as well :cry: I found a light spray of distilled water helped :D

You should find the finish will look better the next day when the TPP has cured.

Looking forward to seeing the final result :D

I've never really got on with DG products, but it's probably just a personal glitch, it gets great reviews. Not for me though.


It's funny I have noticed on this forum and others that some people full in :love: with one product and can get on with it better than others.
I do wonder if sometimes it's brand snobbery; not meaning you Tony :D


It's like AG SRP, folks love it or hate it :roll:

The photo's below, were taken a week after applying a selection of Duragloss products.

As mentioned in this month's, Car Of The Month thread; having a real problem, at the moment, finding a lasting LSP for the Nissan.

Can't say that the finish/beading looks a week old, more like 6 - 8 weeks :cry:

mulder, Sorry your having a problem with the Duragloss :shock: Mine is still beading like it was done yesterday after being applied 3 weeks ago.

I don't know that the pictures necessarily show that the Duragloss isn't still protecting Graeme.

I am currently using Zaino and I will admit the beading isn't as good as wax. After a week, with some road dirt and general dust, the beading on mine looks similar to your Nissan.

Once I wash and dry the car though, it is very evident that the Zaino is still intact and protecting due to the shine and the silky feeling to the paint.

I often read that beading is not an indication of the level of protection provided by a product and given my Zaino experience, that is probably true. However I would like to know how you can tell if the product is still protecting if you can't rely on the beading to help.

Perhaps it is just a sealant thing!

Anyone any ideas?

I made a similar post a couple of weeks ago but I've been on holiday and don't know if anyone responded - apologies if I am covering the topic again.

I agree with you John, that the Duragloss is still protecting, we had some light showers yesterday and the beading I'm used to, was back; seems it's not to keen on downpours :roll:

I didn't get a chance to wash with the Duragloss last weekend and the shampoo is supposed to add something to the finish as well, so we will have to see :idea:
