<big>Renew Your Klasse Shine In Just 5 Minutes With Sonüs Acrylic Glanz!</big>

Sonüs Acrylic Glanz is formulated to maintain your Klasse All-In-One and Sealant Glaze show car finish in an easy-to-use spray. The unique SONACRYLIX™ formula contains the same German acrylic resins used in the award winning Klasse formula. Sonüs Acrylic Glanz enhances gloss and restores a durable acrylic seal. The new water-base formula is safe for all paint finishes, including clear coats.

Directions:
Use after washing to remove water spots and maintain a high gloss appearance. Restores paint protection. Do not use this product as a quick detailing spray. Mist Sonüs Acrylic Glanz on a single paint panel at a time. Wipe body panel with a microfiber buffing towel to apply and allow a moment to haze. Flip towel and buff to a high gloss shine. Did a full detail a couple weeks ago with the SG as the final topper.

Today after a wash, I gave this product a try. To me, I thought the folks at Sonüs were trying to pull a fast one by dumping some Klasse SG in a bottle and remarketing it, but this stuff really is different.

Goes on very easy when used as directed:

"Mist Sonüs Acrylic Glanz on a single paint panel at a time. Wipe body panel with a microfiber buffing towel to apply and allow a moment to haze. Flip towel and buff to a high gloss shine."

I did the entire MC fisrt, then went back and buffed off completely. This stuff is the uber-buff off. So easy, and it leaves that slick, just-Klassed feeling.

Whereas I used to QD after every wash, I will now <big>Sonüs Acrylic Glanz :thumbup:

Quote: DOes it contain TEFLON?

A: No

Information source: Dupont Chemicals

Teflon ®:
A synthetic polymer formula produced by Dupont Chemicals, they state;" The addition of a Teflon® fluoropolymer resin does nothing to enhance the properties of any car wax, we have no data that indicates the use of Teflon® to be beneficial in car waxes. Teflon® requires a temperature of 680°F for it to "sinter" or bond to a surface."

One thing that has confused me is the difference between the Glanz and the Spritz. Both are labledas a QD for Klasse and when I was buying my classe stuff, I couldn't really figure out the difference between them from the product description at autopia.org either.

The Spritz is very good as well.

Anyone know the difference?

Well, the Glanz description says "Do not use this product as a quick detailing spray," and the Spritz description says "Do not use Sonüs Acrylic Spritz on extremely dirty surfaces (light dust only)." I bought the Spritz myself and am carrying it as an emergency QD in case of bird bombs, etc.

Spritz

For crystal-clear maintenance of your Klasse or Autoglym finish, use Sonüs Acrylic Spritz!

Sonüs Acrylic Spritz is formulated to maintain that "just-waxed" sparkle and shine when used with German acrylic sealants (i.e., Klasse) and British resin polishes (i.e., Autoglym). When used with a quality microfiber buffing towel, Sonüs Acrylic Spritz safely removes light dust and water spots, leaving a slick, high gloss finish.

The exclusive Sonüs formula contains SONACRYLIX™, the same acrylic formula used in German high gloss sealants. Regular use extends the period between waxing and maintains healthy, oxidation-free paint. Sonüs Acrylic Spritz is safe for all paint finishes, including clear coats.

Directions:
Use between washes to maintain appearance. Do not use Sonüs Acrylic Spritz on extremely dirty surfaces (light dust only). Use after washing to remove water spots and restore high gloss. Spray light mist on painted surface. Wipe off with a clean microfiber towel. Turn towel frequently.

It does say that Glanz should not be used as a QD spray, but going through the descriptions, they sound like they do the same thing. Both even mention the same ingredients? :confused: :dunno:

The Spritz is very slick, like a QD should be. The Glanz is just a shade thicker, and goes on like a thin lotion.

It would take but a second to spray them on your surface and it would obvious.

So, again - the Spritz is QD; the Glanz is a sealant.

Since the Glanz is a no kidding sealent could it be used in the place of the SG? Also with the Glanz being the sealent, which would be the more appropriate choice for your after wash wipe down? The Glanz description talks about restoring the acrylic seal, yet the Spritz says it will extend the time between "waxing". To me that says the end result is similar. Waxing was never this difficult. :banghead:

Thanks for the clarification. I am new to the whole Klasse experience.

Since the Glanz is a no kidding sealent could it be used in the place of the SG?To be quite honest, I really don't know. I know the perscription for SG is to let is setup for several hours, where the Glanz is to be a instant-on-instant-off procedure.

Also with the Glanz being the sealent, which would be the more appropriate choice for your after wash wipe down?The Glanz, since its major pitch is to supplement the Klasse SG protection, but in a instant-on-instant-off process, not the several hour process.

The Glanz description talks about restoring the acrylic seal, yet the Spritz says it will extend the time between "waxing". To me that says the end result is similar.Exactly. The Glanz is a sealant, whereas the Spritz is really just a QD that has some mild protectors contained within.

Remember, these products did not come out at the same time, so the Sonus Spritz (QD) was marketed as a QD but with some 'protection' traits as well; likely very little. Nevertheless, it (Spritz) is truly a QD.

The Glanz is basically a quick apply & remove sealant; not to be used for cleaning at all. Serioulsy, think of it as Klasse SG in a bottle.

Klasse / Sonus are the same company essentially; it says so on the Sonus bottles.

Thanks for the clarification. I am new to the whole Klasse experience.Hey, no problem. I'm a relatively new Klasse product user myself, it just takes a little time to get the terminology straight in your head. :)

Tried the Glanz after washing the car. Easy on, easy off, and produced a crisp, clean shine on a AIO/SG base, even on a white car. Just for kicks, I repeated the Glanz application and it looks as though the shine deepened a bit. Great stuff!
