Gyeon Q2 wax vs Polish Angel Cosmic Spritz

So did a comparison on hood of Gyeon Q2 and Polish Angel Cosmic spritz. Cosmic is to me the best topper i’ve used.

Using it as a stand-alone right now and still get amazing beading at 2 month mark. This is longest i’ve let it ride and probably will leave alone till i coat.

Don’t know what to expect from Gyeon’s wax but excited to try a fluorine product.

The contestants:











Washed with Ammo frothe









Polished with Essence and a Lake Country CCS green.









Wiped down with Gyeon Q2 PREP







Pics to show PREP laying flat (protection gone). Product left to dwell for 90seconds.







Wiped down with TRC 365 Miner and then with a TRC pluffle. Let sit for 5 min to let any residual product evaporate and wipe again with fresh 365.

Applied Cosmic.... thoughts:

It’s Cosmic! Applies easy wipes of easy. Super simple application. Instruction say wipe on and wipe off. I let sit for 30-90 seconds and wipe off still a breeze.

Applicator: AutoFiber Saver, these are nice because they have a impermeable barries under microfiber to keep from soaking up product. Great for expensive sealantscand coatings.






Applied Q2 wax:

It was a little more work but it’s a wax so expected. Applies easily and and thinly (instruction say thick layer but wouldn’t lay down thick?).

Literally glides over the paint. Needs to cure for 30 minutes (rinseless washed rest or car in mean time).

Says to let sit for 30 mins. Let sit for 40. A tad sticky when removing but no problem at all. Might be a little annoying doing whole car.

Used Gyeons applicator:








Drove it in the sun and both added gloss. It’s flat white paint so looked pretty similar to me.










Forgot to take hood pics.

So far because of ease of application, cosmic in the lead. Gyeon’s a nice product if you went Sio2 or graphene but wanna wax.


Suppose to rain this week so will post beading pics and updates. Will leave alone till i coat whenever that is.

Can you resize your picks? Hard to see what’s going on when you have to scroll sideways for a minute to see the whole photo.

1024X768 usually works well for this forum.

Yeah, sheeting/beading and resistance test will tell which one is better.

Lol....Sorry I use Tapatalk from my phone and they only use small, medium or large. The fit fine on my phone when posting. When I add more pics i’ll try medium. Thanks for the heads up.

I went back and change pictures to medium. Could you verify if their better?

Used a full size pump sprayer to lay down some beads.


Pa Cosmic Spritz:





I and you all knew what to expect. Amazing beading.








Holy $#!t are these Q2M Wax beads taller?!




Next i wanted to see which beads rolled off faster. Beading means nothing if they are going to sit their and form water spots.

Sprayed middle and of hood with 4 passes 2 from left to right and 2 right to left.

PA CS:



Gyeon Wax:



Both:




Holy Sheet (see what I did there?)!!

They Gyeon side is sheeting faster.


Overview to date:

Looks like Gyeon may have a winner if i can get 3 months out of it!

Looks were similar but white not the best way to tell. Although both beaded well Gyeon’s beads were taller (to me you can decide from picks) and definitely rolled off faster


Tomorrow we get some rain so hopefully I can more impressions tomorrow. Neighbors at work think i’m weird for watching my car in the rain

The beading / sheeting properties really look good on the q2m wax. I am a sucker for water behavior. God darnit, I am so tempted now. I should really stop watching youtube detailing channels and reading DW threads in the evenings.

Lovely looking beads

I'm going to guess PA will last longer or I need to invest in more products

Q2 wax is one that I have been waiting to see, interesting!!
