      What's the difference between Meguiar's #20 Polymer Sealant and #21 Synthetic Sealant?

      The difference is 1.

      Sorry- math joke. Lame, I know.

      I'm pretty sure one of the guys from Meguiar's will chime in soon. I'd wait for the authoritative answer from them.

      Both of these products are fully synthetic waxes but the #20 is a cleaner/wax whereas the #21 is just a wax The #21 will be more durable than the #20 but the #20 will be able to remove light defects. It comes down to what you are trying to accomplish when choosing between these products.

      Why do you use the term wax when its a sealant?

      Just like their polishes are more like glazes, it's just how their terminology goes.

      "Sealant" is a term that generated from body shops. Many people in body shops are not aware that waxes seal in paint thus not letting new paint outgas. Because of that the car care industry has started calling waxes sealants so that way it is a visual indicator to the people work on fresh paint that they do not want to use that product.

      Also, it has kind of become a buzz word in the industry. When you see a sealant your mind instantly tells you that this product right here in your hand will protect much better than a wax because this one is called a sealant!

      Our NXT Tech Wax 2.0 is called a wax and our #21 is called a sealant. They are both very similar in formula.
