Turtle Ceramic Spray Coating?

Hi guys,

seen a lot of rave about Turtle's ceramic spray (green isch bottle). Yeah I know they all come out great on internet but this one really made an impression. Anyways, finally manages to order a bottle (only recently available locally). I'll give it a try and come back.

Mean while, haven't seen anything about it here, anyone tried it?

Cheers

I tried the Meguiars Ceramic Spray wax. Good shine, three ways to apply.. ranged from super easy (spray and rinse) to challenging (dry spray and wipe). Good shine. We’ll see how it holds up. Has been in the garage since I last cleaned the car.

Saw some comparisons with Mequiars ceramic spray, seems also great. Pretty much always using degreaser over here it will be interesting to see how Turtle withstand that, if at all. I'll get back after some washing.

Yes, Turtles seems to work so far. Comparing with spray waxes cause similar price/work. Turtle hold up much better after s proper degrease/wash.

Not happy with the Meguiar's one. Too intensive to apply (dry and wipe) and doesn't last anywhere near as long as my old Zaino Clear Seal.

I've had phenomenal results with the meguiars Hybrid Ceramic wax... the first application I usually do dry after a decon, last time I did it after a sealant..then reapplications are pretty easy if I don't have time. I have found the gloss, hydrophobic abilities, and durability very solid.

here's probably the best video series I've found on all sorts of products.
