    Hi teammgwrs

    #20 is a Polymer Sealant with a light amount of chemical cleaners. It is intended for use on finishes in good to excellent condition. If you are applying to a neglected finish, you should use a paint cleaner like Medallion Premium Paint Cleaner, Deep Crystal Step One Paint Cleaner, or Meguiar's Clear Coat Body Scrub, or ScratchX first.

    Work in thoroughly, allow to dry for 10-15 minutes, and then remove with either a clean, soft 100% cotton terry cloth towel, or microfiber polishing cloth.

    #20 isa awesome product, lasts a long time and delivers a slick, high shine surface. Most people like how easy it wipes off.

    Check out the results Superior Shine achieved with #20 on this thread,

    #20 Polymer Sealant is a paint protectant, it is a type of wax. After you clean and polish your car's finish, you would apply a paint protectant. Waxes are paint protectants,#20 Polymer Sealant is a type of wax.

    If you have a new car, or paint that is in good to excellent condtion, then after washing your car, you could apply #20 Polymer Sealant.

    To your question, "Would I use it after a coat of wax or before?"

    The answer is neither. #20 is the coat of wax.

    Hope this helps...

    Hi teammwrs,

    To remove the #20 Polymer Sealant, use microfiber polishing cloths if you have them. #20 wipes off incredibly easy.

    As far as curing/drying time goes...

    10-15 minutes is standard. When I use #20 Polymer Sealant, I apply to the entire car all at once. Then, by the time I have gone all the way around the car, 10-15 minutes have passed and I can begin removing it where I started when I applied it and continue removing it following my application path.

    Hope this helps...
