The advantage of using liquid glass Polish over conventional lies in the comparative durability, hydrophobicity, keeping the original color and hide small defects. For comparison, the wax Polish is kept on the car to 1 car wash, polymer to 4-5, the abrasive is used in rare cases (as an example, to remove the glass). Glass will stay on the car up to 30 washes.

Nanoceramics and liquid glass – primary competitors on the market of automotive services. Nanoceramics is the material expensive, but at the same time more durable. If liquid glass in the domestic climate lasts for 8 months (max a year), producers nanoceramics promise result up to 3 years. In the choice between conventional Polish, ceramics and glass, preference should be given to the latter. Liquid glass is a confident middle between expensive ceramics and conventional coatings.
