Liquid Glass

Has anyone used Liquid Glass instead of wax. I was on an auto forum and everyone rated it 5 stars and some 4's.

just to qualify what you are talking about. I have seen a product called liquid glass most common place I have seen to buy it is a drug store. I have heard stories ( although it did not work for me) you can pour it in a radiator to stop leaks in the head or other places. Is this the product you are talking about ?

The only thing called liquid glass I had heard of was the stuff I mentioned in my post and I could not imagine that as a vehicle polish

Give it five years, and then check out how many advocates are now dealing with how to remove ugly crap peeling from their motorhome!

It's a car polish, do you know something I don't?

It's an acrylic car "wax". Have used it for a few years. It's big claim to fame is if applied properly, several coats will provide a nice shine. I learned about it at a car show. I can't say it lasted long in the elements however. I went back to Zymol for the car.

Used it for 30 years. Works good and last a long time. Local salvage yard sold it when I was a kid. Tried it on old cars I had and made them shine like new.

This is a better alternative for an all-in-one type product.

Klasse AIO, klasse all in one 10 ounce, klasse all in one polish, klasse acrylic polish

Then top it with the sealant for a great shine that lasts for a while.

If you like to save time and effort with a polish and wax in one product I would recommend this one. Then top with the sealant. Just my couple of lincolns.

I have been using this stuff for years on my streetrods. It is a polish and not a wax but when used as directed leaves a very nice shine. As for how long it will last I really don't know as the rods are in the garage 90% of the time. Love this stuff, easy on easy off.

I used it a lot when I was younger and was more obsessed with a clean shiny car..... That being said
I remember it worked great! When people talk about putting on 2 or 3 "coats" of wax, normally they
are fooling themselves, as the second "coat" is actually removing the first coat, plus cleaning the paint
surface of oxidation. It appears shinier the second time, just because the added rubbing and buffing,
has cleaned and smoothed the surface better than the first time.

With this stuff (liquid glass) each coat actually builds upon the previous one, adding depth to the shine.
I can't find the specs now, but I remember the liquid glass people stating somewhere around 7 coats
was adding a protective layer to your paint as thick as a coat of lacquer paint !

It would probably be great for RV's But at $25 per 16 ounces, it would be pricy !

By coincidence I just ordered some. It had come highly recommended to me by more than one or two long-time motorhome owners.
Expensive, but in their opinion worth it. And these guys had 10 year old coaches that looked brand new.
I just ordered the small can and now I'm thinking that might not be enough.

Can't buy it in CA., VOC's to high. They were fined $100,000 by the AQMD a few years back for understating the VOC's.

Sounds a lot like the ZEP Acrylic floor wax as in some of the other threads here. Just did mine last month and still looks great. May be cheaper to buy that than Liquid Glass.
