What is Car Sealant?

Car Sealant is a type of car wax that has superior to regular car wax protection, gloss, and longevity properties. Car Sealants are usually based on synthetic polymers like ceramic (SiO2), silicon polymers, urethane, or other polymers. It allows them better to bond with car paint and gives better protection against UV rays and dirt.

Is sealant good for car?

Yes, car sealant creates a protective layer on your car and enhances its look by adding gloss and deepness to the color. Above this, car sealants can prevent the appearance of minor swirl marks, water spots, and discoloration of paint from UV lights. Better protection than car sealant can provide only ceramic coating or car wrapping.

Is car sealant better than wax?

Yes, car sealant provides better car paint protection from surrounding hazards than traditional wax. Car sealants have better resistance to acid or alkaline than traditional waxes which allows them to stay on car paint longer. Above this, sealants have better protection against UV rays and dirt.

How long does car sealant last?

The majority of car sealant manufacturers state that their sealants last up to 12 months, but in reality, the average longevity of car sealants is 6 months. You always can prolong the lifespan of your sealant by following all manufacturer’s recommendations for the application and maintenance processes of sealant.

Can I wax over the sealant?

Yes, you can wax over the sealant. Car sealants provide better car paint protection and last longer than traditional car waxes. While car waxes can provide better hydrophobic and gloss effects than sealants, so often car sealants are used as a base paint protection layer and then getting covered with traditional waxes. This way of application will give you better paint protection, gloss, and hydrophobic properties, and will allow the sealant to last 12 months or even longer. You can find the best car wax in our recent post by clicking on the highlighted text.


Protection of your car with traditional wax, or sealant is up to you, but if you need something so easy-to-apply, and long-lasting, car sealant is the best choice. In areas with intense sunlight, it will prevent car paint fading and discoloration, in areas with intense snow or rain it will prevent water spots, acid and alkaline destruction of paint, and will make car washing faster and easier.

You may notice that spray sealants are way cheaper than gel/paste sealants, and you may think that by choosing spray you will save some money without missing in quality. In my opinion, gel/paste sealants last longer than spray sealants. Of course, I’m sure that you know a guy who applied spray sealant 5 years ago and it still protecting his car, but let’s be serious, spray sealants will not provide the same level of protection for as long as gel/paste sealants.

You can use spray sealants for high-quality protection for around 3 months, or to use them as boosters to previously applied gel/paste sealants. It will help you to keep sealant protection for 12+ months on your car. Also, you can use ceramic spray waxes as a booster for your sealant.
