At one point in my career, I would get ten samples a month from various manufacturers wanting me to try their newest coating, sealant, wax, or polymer product. I remember trying Opticoat out of sample bottles, I remember 1000-dollar swiss waxes, I remember the first ceramic coatings and crazy polymer blends that were amazing for their time.
What holds Nanolex apart is the ease of use. It's a bit more temperature-sensitive than say a hand-rubbed wax, but it goes on easy. wipes off well within its time frame, and is durable enough for a daily drivers use.
Would it be the first thing I recommend for a person new to detailing? no probably not.
Would it be the first thing I recommend for someone looking to broaden their knowledge base? Yes.
Would it be the first ceramic coating I recommend for a boutique shop? Hands down yes.
You can do a lot with the nanolex product line, and this ceramic coating is the backbone of it all. Do yourself the favor, buy some, use it, learn its limitations and build your detailing process around filling those gaps. It's products like this that allow hobbyists and professionals to trim down the time it takes to do absolutely stunning work.
