What’s the BEST WAX you have ? This is a question all our customers want to know! The answer to this question is not as easy as one would assume. If there ever was a “Best Wax” we would have no need for multiple product lines and running our business would be easy. The question that should really be asked is “What is the best wax for ME?”
Every customer has different needs and tastes. Finding the proper product(s) starts with you. One can get seriously confused and intimidated searching through hundreds of products trying to make sure they get the best brand. The process can be simplified by following this article, we hope this article helps in the journey to find YOUR best product.
Waxes- commonly blends of Brazilian Carnauba Wax are used for their deep, wet shine and ease of application. Nothing matches the warmth of nature’s beauty! Waxes will add extra depth, gloss and most importantly, protect your freshly polished surface!
Combination Polish/Waxes - These products combine both a polish and a wax in one. This allows the user to accomplish both tasks in one easy step. Although this process works great initially, it is usually a compromise and lacks in durability. These combination products can usually still be topped with a Carnauba Wax to further increase durability and gloss.
But I just want a Wax!- Not all cases require both a polish AND a wax. You may very well be fine with a pure wax. Not all customers are real worried about a show car shine and simply want to add a wax for protection. Also, many may already have a properly maintained and/or polished surface and simply want to try a different brand of wax. But remember, if it is surface correction, cleaning, or gloss you are after, polishing before waxing is a must.
Okay, so what’s the best Polish and/or Wax!? Not so fast! We still need to get to personal needs! What makes product A better than product B for YOU?
Time- How much time do you have? This is an important question. Many of my customers are diehard enthusiasts and have no problem spending several hours Polishing and waxing in separate steps. Then there are customers who would like to get it done and over with so they can cruise as soon as possible!
Carnauba or Sealant? - Just when you thought we went over your options out comes more. When picking a protection product you have two main choices, a wax or a sealant.
Carnauba- Carnauba is a natural wax produced by the Brazilian Tree of Life. An application of a carnauba-based wax to your vehicle will protect it from UV rays, heat, moisture, oxidation, and environmental contamination. Carnauba waxes produce a liquid wet and deep glow that can’t be matched by any man made synthetic wax. It’s a favorite amongst car collectors and enthusiasts. The drawback to a carnauba based product is its durability. A carnauba based product will wear off in 6-8 weeks depending on exposure and climate. A vehicle which is garaged will last much longer than a vehicle which is exposed to the elements constantly. Heat and humidity also play a big role. Carnauba lovers will often tell you the shimmer and glow they achieve with a carnauba is worth having to re-apply every couple months!
Sealants- There is not much nature to a sealant. Sealants are man,s artificial answer to waxes. Sealants are polymer based creations that topple the durability of carnaubas. Sealants bond to your vehicles surface forming a rock hard, reflective barrier of protection that will last up to one year! Sealants are extremely easy to apply being a liquid form spread easily and dry to a dust free film that can easily be wiped off.
So what will it be? Highly reflective or will it be Deep wet natural shine? 6 weeks or 6+ months of protection. The choice is yours.
I WANT BOTH! Reflective AND Deep/Wet. - Of coarse you do! It is now becoming more popular for people to add an additional step to gain the edge they need. Many show car owners and finding that by applying a highly reflective and highly durable sealant followed by a natural carnauba, the highly reflective sealant shines through the wet carnauba creating an unmatched combination of science and nature. There are also sealants such as Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant or Poorboy’s EX with Carnauba that imitate the look of a sealant/carnauba blend all in one step!
