I've read all the stuff about Zymol here, as being the bees knees :) How much is it roughly for the (fairly) top of the line treatment on a Ferrari?

Has anyone used A-Glaze on their Ferrari? I've seen a pic of a 355 Spider in their brochure and met the guy who did it. It looked EXTREMELY deeply shiny :thumbsup:

I think A-Glaze came from the marine sector originally, so should last pretty long on a car?

Anyway, does anyone have any experience of A-Glaze?

Jas,
Youre right it does come from the marine sector originally and I believe from the USA.
I`ve seen a few boats in our marina done with it and have to say not that impressed.
Having said that some boat owners seem to think that its a polish, whereas my understanding is that it is a glaze to be applied after polishing to seal in the effect that you have achieved.
And just think how you would miss the enjoyment of polishing at regular intervals!

I would be worried about the effect it might have on car paint - I would expect car and marine paint to be different with marine paint being tougher. Just my unsubstantiated assumptions though.

I thought it was a polymer sealant, that goes on instead of polish/wax......

They seem to have a car formulation.

Anyway, apart from the 355 in their brochure, it seems no one has used it?

This product is a sealant rather than a wax. I imagine it performs much the same as any other sealant therefore. Have a quick search in this section - Zymol Dave has posted info about sealants.

Jas,
I would be interested in what you find out particularly if there is an A Glaze formulation for cars that differs from the marine version.

Most boats that use A Glaze are not painted and owners are always looking to preserve or regain that boat show appearance of high gloss white fibreglass!

Chris,

Yes there is a car formulation, see the link above pls. I was quoted 300 for it.

Sounds like Permaguard, Supaguard etc...

In which case (assuming I am right of course), it is the age old debate about Zymol VS XXXguard.

If you do decide that you want the later, then I see no reason to go for the 300 A glaze when fully tested and guarantied Permaguard cost 140.

Good point :)
