5 Best High-Performance Car Sealants
We tried the likes of Meguiar’s, Chemical Guys and many others. Here are our 5 best sealants:
1). MIRROR SHINE by TORQUE DETAIL
Designed as a wax replacement, Mirror Shine blew us away in terms of effectiveness and was our favorite by far. It was fantastic at giving that natural wax finish - so much easier to apply than traditional wax; just spray on and work into the surface.
In addition, it gave lasting protection to our car’s coat (we’re on month 3 and it still repels water like crazy).

2). REVIVE by HYDROSILEX
Recharge by Hydrosilex is meant to be a temporary ceramic coat, with an easy spray-on application. This silica-based Sio2 formula gives this Hydrosilex amazing hydrophobic qualities, but it doesn’t have as deep of a shine and versatility as Mirror Shine.
3). MIRROR GLAZE SYNTHETIC SEALANT 2.0 by MEGUIAR'S
Meguiar's has an extensive product line and this is a solid addition to their line. This product has a similar formula to Mirror Shine (a Polymer-based formula known for it’s hydrophobic capabilities). The downside is the application is a bit messy and must be applied and buffed like traditional car wax.
4). LIQUID WAX by CAR GUYS
CarGuys has amassed a strong following on Amazon. Their Liquid Wax product advertises getting a wax shine with added synthetic protection. The shine looked great and after a few weeks the coat still seemed very hydrophobic. However, the liquid based formula must be applied carefully.
5). GRAND FINALE by ZAINO
Zaino has a bit of a cult following. Their Grand Finale product is a spray sealant and claims to give a high gloss, deep “wet” finish, thanks to it’s synthetic polymer formula.
Our results: the shine looked great and after a few weeks the coat still seemed very much intact and continues to bead water. The only downside is it was a bit harder to apply evenly than some other products.
