As a car owner, you want your ride to look as good as new. A ceramic coating can help maintain the shine of your vehicle, but a Nano sealant such as the Suma Performance Nano sealant can give you better results at a cheaper cost and in less time.
The Suma Nano sealant is a spray ceramic coating that repels bird droppings, tree sap, UV light, acid rain, weather erosion, plus other elements. This super durable spray can also be used on both wet and dry paint and provides instant curing. The protective layer is also tough as the ceramic sealant chemically bonds with the surface allowing the Nanoparticles to fill any existing gaps. The result is a high-quality ceramic coating that lasts for up to two to five years.
But despite the Suma sealant being a quality car care product, it faces stiff competition from other ceramic coatings. In this article, we review five of the top Suma ceramic coating competitors, so you can make an informed purchase decision.
1. Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray
An easy to use ceramic spray, the turtle wax ceramic coating is also inexpensive at only £18 for a 500ml bottle. The spray is made of superhydrophobic and SiO2 polymers that promise to give your car water-repelling and chemical resisting protection that lasts for up to 12 months.
This sealant spray has a fruity scent, and it’s easy to use. No experience or professional training is needed to use this sealant. You only need to shake the bottle and spray the contents on the working area. Using a clean microfiber towel, work the sprayed liquid onto your car’s surface and let it sit for a minute.
The only downside of this ceramic spray is that it can cause streaking, especially on glass.
2. Shelby Ceramic Coating
Voted as the 2021 best ceramic sealant by Autoexpress, Shelby ceramic coating is easy to use, durable and affordable. The Shelby coating was initially made for marine use, but it’s also perfect for all on-road and off-road vehicles.
The application process of this sealant is simple and straightforward. According to the production team, you only need to use a suitable application pad to apply the spray in straight and long strokes. The curing takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The result is a smooth gloss finish. This waterless spray is also good value for money as it costs £49.99 for a 100ml bottle.
Some users complained that the spray would sometimes leave white streaks on the paint. You might need to use a damp microfiber cloth as the applicator to avoid any streaks.
3. Mothers CMX Ceramic Spray Coating
The Mothers ceramic spray is made of silicone and titanium dioxide. You don’t need tons of experience to use this coating. After just one application, the result is a clear shine that protects your car for up to six weeks. For longer protection, you’ll need to apply additional layers. At only £19.99 for a 710ml bottle, this is one of the most affordable sealants on this list.
The only downside of this spray is that it may not be so smooth to touch, and in some instances, it leaves white beads on your vehicle.
4. Gyeon Q2 CanCoat
Another easy to use and wipe spray is the Gyeon Q2 Cancoat. One layer of this sealant is enough to give your car a self-cleaning protective layer that lasts six months. If you need more extended protection, you can always apply more coats.
Although this ceramic coating is easy to apply, it’s still one of the best sealants in the market as it gives your car a sleek shiny finish. It will also protect your vehicle’s paint against UV rays, road salt, bird droppings, and strong chemicals.
You need to apply a small amount of this sealant at a time and immediately wipe it clean. The coating also seems to dry out too quickly when used in direct sunlight, leaving streaks. This sealant is also a bit expensive at the cost of £33 for a 200ml bottle.
5. Dodo Juice Supernatural Infinity Sealant
The supernatural infinity is a Nano paint sealant, just like the SUMA Nano sealant. This sealant protects your car’s paint job with a glassy hard coating that can last up to two years. The dependable protective barrier won’t allow bird droppings, road salt or airborne contaminants to stick on your car.
Besides, this Nano paint is easy to apply, although you need to use isopropyl alcohol, traffic film remover, and a strong shampoo to remove any previous coating before applying the spray. Unfortunately, this sealant is a bit pricey at the cost of £50 for a 50ml bottle.
In closing, ceramic coatings maintain the shine on your car’s paint job. This way, you can wash your car less and drive it more. With a sealant such as the SUMA Nano sealant, you get a coating that protects your vehicle for longer and one that is easy to use and clean. Besides, you can apply the Nano spray whether the car is wet or dry with no possibility of streaking or smearing.
