A&J Posted August 19, 2016 Share Posted August 19, 2016 This is a comparison review based on a discussion I had with forum user Lowejackson (so this is for you I guess). Lowejackson wondered how opti-seal would compare to a popular glass sealant made by Angelwax called H2go. The H2go sealant is very popular in the UK as well as in EU for its low cost, ease of use and good durability. I got 5 months durability in mixed weather before two weeks of heavy rain finally killed it. THE METHOD Prep first First I washed the glass with ONR Safe to say the 1month old H2go was still going strong. The water seperated immediately leaving some lovely beads behind Then I gave it a quick claying...too be honest it wasnt needed but hey To remove the old sealant I polished glass using Hyper polish on a 3m pad and a DA. I wiped it off with a ONR damp microfiber towel. I came off easy. Then I taped off the glass. Passenger side wearing 2 coats of Opti-seal 1h apart, midlle part is a control area not wearing anything, driver side wearing 2 coats of Angelwax H2go 10min apart. The Angelwax bottle is not original as the sprayer died on me (a common defect with H2go) and even after a while I notice that even this sprayer bottle will soon stopped working on me (it just spits it out instead of spraying a fine mist). Must be something in the formula that kills the sprayers, who knows. Both sealants left behind a slick feeling, hard to say which was slicker. The middle control part was left a bit tacky or less slick than the protected sides. RESULT Result followed the next morning so I diddnt have to wait long (it rained during the night, like it did for the past 3 days). This is how it looked from the inside. Angelwax side (left) removed a lot of water during rainfall Controled middle part looks different doesnt it? Opti seal side seems to hold most of the water but that doesnt really tell us anything right? The drive Both worked great. Both started removing water at about 46km/h, but Angelwax did it a bit faster although Opti-seal did it more through. The position of the camera is not perfect but it does the job. After a quick drive Angelwax leaving a bit of water on the lower part, other than that it completely removed it. Opti-seal removed everything leaving behind clean and dry glass During rain test drive and durability test will follow over time. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
