    What are your thoughts? All are relatively the same price range.

    What matters to me

    Longevity and toughness are what I am concerned with. I am in the rust-belt here in southwest Michigan so the winter is very brutal to paintwork.

    Go with sonax polymer net shield and keep it going strong with their brilliant shine Detailer for up to 6 months of protection.

    i cant speak to Jetseal, but i have used PNS and Powerlock.

    Currently i have PNS topped with 2 coats of powerlock, overkill maybe but i had the time ;)

    I really like polymer net sheild, its easy to apply and it gives great protection, however i dont feel like it lasts as long as powerlock, and over a long winter without proper washes ive seen powerlock last from late october to march. Maybe next winter i'll give PNS a shot on it own, but for now i know powerlock will last me a brutal winter here.

    I had phil apply sonax PNS last year and it definitely lasted 6 months even when I would use more car wash soap then I needed to. It was also one of the worst winters on record here in NYC/nj area. After last winter I'm convinced that aside from that sealant if I was looking for more protection I wouldn't look for another sealant I'd go to a coating.

    My vote goes to Sonax's PNS. Fantastic beading and sheeting, I have seen 5.5 months on a personal car up here in Canada that had been sitting outside 24/7.

    Thank you guys for the input! So PNS is layerable?

    Yes it is. I actually apply 2 layers back to back and then do a Brilliant Detailer wipedown. I did a winter prep a few weeks ago using this technique. I will monitoring durability. PNS is the poorman's semi-permanent coating IMO.

    Out of the three I would definitely agree PNS. It can be a little grabby / finicky to apply so work in really small sections. Beading is spectacular! I was not impressed with Jetseal at all. It was super slick and looked good, but was very dusty on removal if I remember correctly, and did not last long at all.

    From my testing, PNS will give the best durability out of those. MPL will be way easier to apply, but easily gets knocked back when it comes to durability. And PNS also has the best self cleaning properties out of those. I don't like it on wheels, but on body panels it delivers. Especially if you top it up with BSD.

    Kind regards,

    I have PNS coming my way (that didn't sound right) lol I look forward to using it. Before that i used Jetseal religiously and it works well if you let it cure and with 2 coats. I also use Opti-Seal as well and like that too.
