Video of glass sealant in action


IMADreamer

Question

Someone asked a while ago if I could get a video of the glass sealant in action and I finally got around to it. Please excuse the commentary by yours truly, it certainly detracts from the video. lol BTW this is nearly six weeks after the sealant was applied.

 

Hope I did this right as I've never uploaded a video before.

The primary differences I notice between the 2 products... and these are purely from my personal experience-

 

RainX does nothing to enhance optical clarity. In some cases I've even noticed it clouds the glass, after a single application of our glass sealant everyone who has used it has noted increased clarity on their front glass... I can attest to that fact. After a fresh application of it you'd swear someone had stolen your windshield as your driving, even directly towards a setting sun.

 

Our glass sealant also doesn't fight you if you want to take it off and reapply. Rainx will tend to gum up and be a real pain to remove when the coverage gets inconsistent (wiper wear down) with nothing more than a little APC and a quick pass of clay our sealant is fully gone and ready for a fresh application.

 

Agree about the rain x. It works well but a pain to apply and buff off so it does not cloud up. The clarity is something that makes me want to try the Adams.

 

After using the glass polish/cleaner how do you apply the sealer? Waiting on a new windshield and will try it on same.

 

EDIT: Found the vid, spray on blue micro applicator..got it but now have a question: does just the use of Adams glass cleaner take the sealer off or is it ok to use on the sealer?

Well instead of starting another thread on glass sealant I thought I'd use Jasons.

 

Here's a relatively high speed test of it under quite heavy rainfall. :banana:

 

The picture SHOULD get better... YouTube was still processing it. :2thumbs:

great video Chewy, agree with what you said at the beginning, the camera does not do this justice at all. In person the effectiveness of GS is very impressive.

 

 

BTW, we are in a drought here, it hasn't rained for almost 36 hours. lol

Our glass cleaner will not remove the sealant. It pretty much takes something on the level of our APC or a claybar to get it off.

 

The reason we recommend using our glass cleaner to prep the surface and to buff off the residue is the fact it does not contain ammonia or alcohol. Its also a 'mechanical' cleaner versus a 'chemical' cleaner leading to less streaking and more effective removal of the sealant residue.

 

In my testing I found that other popular glass cleaners would cause clouding of our sealant... it wasn't consistent, but it happened on occasion. I believe it was due to the chemical cleaners in the product reacting with the sealant.

We run a large farm and just finished up with wheat harvest. Every year on the combines one of my biggest problems is the dust from the fields on the windshields of the cab make it very hard to see. Well I figured it would be good to try the glass sealant on them. It was amazing! It stayed clean enough that all they needed was a quick wipe down with dry paper towel in the morning and crytal clear again. My dad fell in love and is ordering it for all the tractors and semis.

:rockon:

Once the sealant is applied to the out side of the glass, can you use the Adams window cleaner to keep it clean? or will the window cleaner and a glass towel remove the window sealer?

 

Or is the clay bar the only thing that will remove the window sealer?

 

thanks,

You're fine with glass cleaner. The sealant doesn't last forever so you'll have to reapply after a bit. GWC or APC will remove it I'm sure, but you'd be surprised how strong it is.

What Chris said, but make sure it's the Adam's glass cleaner you use.

 

I did up my neighbour's Civic and he cleaned it a few days later with the most common glass cleaner out there. Stripped the sealant right off.

 

It has since been re-applied and he now has a sample bottle of the good stuff.....LOL

Ah so the sealer will keep the glass cleaner and beading water longer.... So you shouldn't need to use the glass cleaner as much?

 

When the sealer becomes degraded then clean it off with window cleaner or whaterver, and reapply?

I'd clay it using glass cleaner and reapply.

Cool, got it. Use the two, sealer and glass cleaner together. The Adam's galss cleaner won't "remove" the sealer. so I can use the glass cleaner for normal cleaning after the sealer is applied. Use clay to remove the sealer completely when it's degraded.

 

 

Awesome, got it.

 

Thanks again.

I just re-clay the window when the sealant wears out and re-apply. It's pretty amazing the amount of crude that builds up on the glass over a couple months.

 

Cool,

 

I was kinda wondering what to do when sealant is applied and I get bug guts on the windshield. Can I use the adams glass cleaner to get the bugs off or any dirt, bird mess off the glass without having to remove and reapply the sealer every time I get bug slop on the car...

 

I live in North FL... We have lots of bugs...

 

:(

Definitely just use the glass cleaner over the sealant. It will not harm the sealant at all. I do it all the time. I'm only on my second application of the sealant and I made this thread how many months ago? lol It's pretty durable stuff.

I picked some up last weekend at the detail clinic here in Portland. Haven t tried it out yet, but judging by the video, it doesn't seem to be any better than rain-x ???? As a matter of fact, in my experience, Id say rain-x sheets off better than what the video showed at 50. Although, with the rain-x, Ive always put it on in 2 layers since it does rain like a mother here in the NW. Maybe thats the difference. Im hoping to get a couple layers of Adams on here soon and test it out myself for sure.

 

Thanks for posting the vid!

thanks for the reply. I have the cleaner on order and will add the sealer. I have yet to find a good cleaner and I am not that young! Look forward to Adams glass cleaner. What you said about no chems makes sense vs the chem jobs.

.......my wipers are rarely used now.

I agree with what Jason and Dylan has already said. Currently I drive 20 minutes to work. The other morning I let the wipers swipe four times and before using the sealant I would have had to leave them on the whole time.
