I will ditto youngs modulus.
Ive had four or five bikes in matte and can't imagine any need for waxing or sealing... seems not just a neutral thing to do, either than effort and expense, but potentially a bad one in some ways.
The only thing in cycling that doesn't appear to be properly UV protected is Zipp wheels. I've had two sets noticeably yellow on me. Terrific wheels in every other way, but that was annoying.

Does anyone here have any recommendations for sealing/protecting the matte finish on a bike frame? I am getting a new matte BoB frame this week. I detail my cars as my other hobby ... On my other gloss painted bikes, I protect the paint using a german acrylic sealant once or twice a year ... Klasse (lasts a long, long time) and then layer over the top with P21s after I wash them. I have never owned or worked on matte paint neither on cars nor bikes. Thanks.




Hi
I have just used Isopropyl Alcohol 90 cents for 32 OZ

I use Chemical Guys Meticulous Matte on my F10 BoB frame. Very pleased with the results.

Hi

I maybe wrong but look at the stuff for made for Matt surfaces the main ingredients is Alcohol.
Seal already sealed paint or anodized surface ? I got my Mat bikes so I would not have to wax, polish just clean.

They may use alcohol as a delivery agent but after the alcohol evaporates, it's going to leave whatever protectant is in the product. Using plain alcohol just seems a bit harsh as a cleaner to me.

Bike frames done sit out in the sun much of the day like cars so they don't need as much wax or protectant. I use meguiars quick detailer which cleans and protects all in one wipe. It works great on my matte Colnago C59 and is pretty inexpensive.
