"Sealant" is a nickname often given to a synthetic paint protection product. It implies extended durability.

Sealer and Glaze is a glaze that provides shine and hides minor surface imperfections - it's not meant as a standalone product, but to be used before a final product like our Natural Formula waxes.

If you consider synthetic products as sealants, we offer Reflections. But, we refer to it as a synthetic wax.

Wait a few more weeks for more information.

Thanks. Been a Mothers fan for a long time. Does Mothers have anything similar to Meguiars dual action?

So, just because my inquiring mind wants to know, why is Phase 2 named Sealer and Glaze?

Talking Re: Paint Sealant

Thanks Mamas Boy, what excellent information youve provided. But what about SEALER and GLAZE vs. Finishing Glaze?

Super Duty Compound is a fast cutting compound, aggressive, for the first cut of major defects. Think of the pro products in order of aggressiveness, from most to least:

Super Duty Compound
Rubbing Compound
Foam Pad Polish

They each serve a purpose.

The difference between Sealer and Glaze and Finishing Glaze has to do with how long the products work and how they work. Finishing Glaze takes longer to haze up, so it's more appropriate to use with a rotary (the heat affects it slower). Sealer and Glaze would dry faster from the heat a rotary generates, giving you less time to work the area.

Please remember the pro products are made for professional use with a rotary for best results.

I didn't think it was that big of deal - it's "sealer", not "sealant".

The "sealer" part of the name refers to the act of "sealing" the polished surface with a uniform smooth layer (as you'll recall, this product hides imperfections by filling them in, reducing their visibility). It is done with a "glaze" product. Ergo, Sealer and Glaze.

Is there a Mothers product that completely removes swirls instead of filling and hiding it?

Scratch Remover does. It's a pure polish. It can be used by hand or machine.


Thanks Forrest. I feel much more edumacated now!

No. #7 has no warranty. Larry was mentioning in in reference to a previous question about why Phase 2 is called "Sealer and Glaze."

As far as I know, no paint protection lasts 5 years. If it's something you can buy and apply yourself, it's probably "too good to be true" and if it's something applied by a dealership or independent business, there is likely fine print that says something to the effect that "refresher coatings" must be applied yearly or every 6 months. Also, you'd need to look at what is warranteed for the 5 years. Will it bead water for 5 years? "Protect?" "Shine?" What proceedure is available to allow you to know at what point the "shine" is no longer up to par? How can you tell when it's no longer "protecting?" Lots of vagueness and/or loopholes to watch out for.
You mentioned "shine" is warranteed on the product you saw. That's a pretty relative term that would be hard to quantify. How dull would it have to get before the warrantee comes into effect? What proof do you have to come up with that you followed all proceedures correctly?

Just my thoughts. Maybe you've come across the next miracle product!
