Welcome to my review of the new spray sealant by Scholl Concepts “NEO”. Having been a professional detailer for many years now, I have tried and tested the dozens of sealants out there in the market and Neo definitely deserves a place up there as one of the best in its modest price bracket. The main reasons being its spectacular ease of use with two ways of application using either the Scholl Concepts Honey Puck or the Scholl Neo Spider Pad. Personally for me I prefer to spray the Neo directly on to the Puck, applying evenly to the vehicle as you would if applying a wax, leave for 10 minutes and buff with a microfibre cloth.
The other great thing about this product is it’s versatility, which definitely saves time as you do not need to use a variety of products for different surfaces, this one does it all. I find it brilliant to use on not only the exterior paintwork but also on chrome, windows and exterior plastics, giving it a fresh and natural finish with the added bonus of the protection. Here are some pictures of a recent detail I did using the Neo in the final stages to protect the paintwork…
Obviously, as with any product you use, to get the best out of it, preparation is key. As a wise man once told me, “fail to prepare, prepare to fail.” However, although this car has undergone a full paint correction, you can clearly see the luxuriously glossy finish the Neo leaves!
The crucial question as with any sealant has to be it’s longevity, which is a hard one to answer… as previously mentioned it is essentially down to how well the surface is prepared, but I have personally found that even after five months beading is still apparent on the protected surfaces and there is still a high gloss finish after washing. All in all, I think this is a great product which represents outstanding value for money and as a professional detailer I would recommend giving it a try!
