There are so many different choices when it comes to paint protection. Before even thinking about the individual products and brands, you need to choose between waxes, sealants, ceramic coatings, and spray sealants.

Here are links to my favourite paint protection products.

Garage Therapy /Three: Ceramic Sealant

I was on the quest for a great all-rounder that offered a glossy finish, great water-repellency, ease of application and durability, and I think I’ve found the winner with this product. The other paint protection products I have on this list definitely all deserve a place here, but if you want a durable all-rounder, then this is the one I’d go for.

G3 Professional Super Gloss Paste Wax

Some people love waxes and others find them too time-consuming, however I’m in the first camp especially in summer.

This is a ridiculously easy wax to apply that I actively look forward to using and doesn’t make the waxing process feel like a chore at all. It offers a super slick and glossy finish with outstanding water behaviour. The only downside is that it needs reapplying every 1-2 months, but it’s so easy to use that it doesn’t bother me at all.

Pyramid Car Care UBV New Era Ceramic Coating

I applied this 3-year coating to a new car a few months ago and have been very impressed with the performance. It offers outstanding water behaviour, self-cleaning ability and slickness. Ceramic coatings do require more prep before application, but I found this very easy to use once the surface was ready. It also has a short drying time so it can be applied outdoors.

Gyeon Wet Coat

This is one of the fastest ways of applying a durable layer of protection to a vehicle. You just spray it on the panel after it’s been washed and rinsed, but whilst it’s still wet.

Then you immediately rinse it off using a power washer and dry the paint as normal. It leaves a nice slick and water-repellent finish and can be used as a stand alone sealant, or to top up existing LSP (wax, sealant or coating).

Garage Therapy /Two: Sigma

This one is a cross between a quick detailer and sealant. It provides around 8 weeks protection, it’s really easy to apply and leaves an amazingly slick and glossy finish behind. I like using it in combination with the GT Ceramic Sealant to top it up and keep the performance levels consistent. However, it can also be used as a stand-alone product.

P&S Paint Gloss

I’ve started using this product more recently and have been very impressed with how easy it is to use. You simply spray and wipe, meaning it’s possible to apply it to an entire car in around 5-10 minutes.

It’s not a very durable product and will only last a couple of weeks, however it does a great job at topping up the protection and adding a boat load of gloss and slickness to boost the finish.
