Spray sealants

Many companies have come up with sealants that you just apply... no need to buff.

I wonder if there is any difference between this products and the traditional ones (in terms of results and durability)

I use Aquartz Reload from Detailers Domain. It has a 6 month durability.

I've only used one non-buff sealant (won't say which one) and the durability was not bad at all, but definitely not as good as the buff off equivalent. With that said, since it is a spray on, no buff required, it is easier apply and you can thus do it more often making durability less of a concern.

I don't have as much time to play around with my car anymore, so I always go for the longest lasting product which is the buff off version.

The zaino spray is supposed to last for 9 months! Which is more than their buff off version

Looks is all in the prep work. If you wash, clay, and polish the paint to perfection, than any wax or sealant (spray or otherwise) will look great!
