Zaino ??

What is the correct name for Zaino (Brand). What is it, and how do you use it. Assume it is akin to Simonize. I cannot not find Zaino in the local car supply stores in my area, at least under the name "Zaino".. Thanks,
vz

Zaino is an acrylic polymer that is not akin to Simonize. If you layer 3 coats, it should last about 6 months. Excellent protection and shine. Check the detailing forum for tons of info.
