A No Brainer For Daily Drivers
October 6, 2016
With proper prep and with a simple and correct application, this stuff produces a very good to excellent shine and protects well/lasts for 12 months in the Midwest. I am a classic case of having to maintain daily drivers with limited time for detailing and have to accept that that my aging is showing in that spending a whole weekend per car is more tiring and increasing harder on my back - despite my relative good health. So the upshot is after doing my anal retentive inside/outside, under hood and inside of wheels spring cleaning of each vehicle, I want a durable seal and nice gloss look without having to redo it every 8-12 weeks. I previously and very happily used Zaino polishes and sealants, and while easy to apply, the optimal multi-step/multi-coat process is time consuming and really needs to be re-coated about every 6-7 months with a thorough detail and reapplication annually. Whereas the Enviroshield Ceramic system actually lasted a full year from a single coat application. I am not certain how much additional shine or longevity is obtained with multiple coats; I may try adding a second top off coat after 6 months because it would require only basic prep and this application time would likely be only 30-45 minutes for me. I am not confident in longevity for two years on a single coat, nor even with a double coat – and I have not seen anyone speak to this real use reviews. I bought my only kit 2-years ago and have applied a total of 5 coats over that time between 2 cars, a ’08 Acura TL (bronze color) and a ‘13 RDX (graphite color). I plan to buy another kit and try it on my new white SUV. For the cost per application, quicker application time than many other sealants, excellent appearance, and longevity on daily drivers, Duragloss Enviroshield Ceramic Coating is a winner in my book.
Pros:- Especially Good for Daily Drivers - Protection/Longevity legit full year w/one coat.
- Very Good to Excellent Gloss/Shine.
- Ease of Application (multi coating not mandatory for great results).
- Low Cost per Application (if applied correctly, and after proper detail/prep).
