How we Tested it?

We have used Autoglym Super Resin many times over the years and it was actually the first car polish we used. It has been used on paintwork in great condition and paintwork in abysmal condition. We look at the finish the polish leaves, correcting or filling capabilities, dusting, ease of use and value.

We Liked:

  • Very easy product to apply. Spreads easily and buffs off effortlessly from bodywork.
  • No doubt about it, Super Resin leaves a lovely deep shine to the paintwork and will help to mask light swirling and marring in the paint.
  • Offers small amount of protective properties. Short lived but will add a small amount of protection.
  • Good value product with a litre available for around £10-12 which will last a long time.

We Didn’t like:

  • Avoid plastics at all cost. This product whitens trim like no other!
  • Whilst the claim is that defects will vanish during use and to a degree true. This is also due to the product containing many fillers and the effect as a result will only be temporary. So you'll need to keep it topped up.

Overall:

An ever present on many a garage shelf around the country and it’s easy to see why. A good price point and impressive results make a good case for Super Resin. Having said that, there are polishes out there that offer similar and greater performance. The best way to look at Super Resin polish is as a “quick shine” product rather than a correcting or restorative polish. With the arrival of Autosmart Topaz which we will be reviewing, Super Resin certainly has strong competition in this sector.

Update: Since this review was originally published, we have re-tested this product as Autoglym have updated their formula - This new formula no longer creates excessive dusting and this review has been updated accordingly. Good job Autoglym!
