Great sealant! Requires proper prep
October 22, 2014
This sealant is great! Crystal clear and makes windows very smooth. One of those overlooked details that really make a difference when you spend so much time cleaning everything else. This makes the glass look factory fresh. Wipers run smoother/faster…if I need them at all. Actually, my windows roll down a little faster and quieter…I’m not joking.
Be sure to use like any sealant. It’s all about prep, prep, prep. Anything on the window you are going to seal in. This includes dirt, sap, water spots, etc. Take the same care you would with sealing your paint.
How I cleaned my windows before sealing:
• Normal car wash
• #0000 steel wool with an orange de-greaser to clean the window (glass only!)
• A clay bar just to be sure I have everything off
• A good auto window cleaner like invisible glass used with a quality lint free towel. Personally for window cleaning I prefer a nice glass towel or terry cloth over microfiber.
Do the above and the Griot’s glass sealant goes on effortlessly and buffs out to a perfect finish.
Pros:-Super easy to apply
-Great smooth finish
-Greater wiper efficiency
-Windows clean and dry much easier during normal wash
-I don’t live in Chicago anymore but this would be great for winter. I used Klasse AIO on my glass in the past for winter which greatly helped. I’m sure ice will jump off the window with this Griot’s stuff.
Cons:Not really a con but…Do not use unless you properly clean your windows.
