They are ready for polishing the body every day. These people are willing to spend a lot of time wax, the use of products that are applied in several stages.

Polish wax

For other people who really value their time, but want their car was neat and tidy, you need a quick and easy solution to restore the Shine and protect the body. For these and other categories of people who there are products that can give excellent results. Let's look at the process of preparation and application of wax.

To date, there are hundreds of products on the basis of wax. They can be divided into the following categories:

  • Liquid waxes;
  • Waxes in paste form;
  • Wax aerosols;
  • Sealants to protect the body.

You have to start with the cleaning of the surface

Before you apply any protective wax on the bodywork of the vehicle must be clean. A simple wash will not be sufficient in the surface of the remains of dirt and adherent solid particles. For a more thorough cleaning after washing apply a universal system of cleaning waxes, the cleaning of the clay and other compounds. We are going to consider the advantages and disadvantages of these methods of cleaning.

The wax composition 2in1(cleaner and wax to protect) vs cleaning clay+wax

Most modern cars have a lacquer coating, even if the paint without the metallic effect. This layer differs from the layer without the paint. Modern varnish is applied to a thin layer. This is done in order to save and reduce the final cost of the event. Therefore, it is not correct to regularly use abrasives for cleaning and polishing bodywork. 2in1 wax compositions are the cleaning of the wax. As cleaners, that contain particles abrasive. The stock thickness of the varnish does not allow you to do a lot of abrasive polishing. It is advisable to apply a detox clay and then use wax that contains no cleaners.

Polish to remove defects before waxing...

If the vehicle Is to cover with wax, there are minor scratches and scuffs, you must first apply very polished. Some people mistakenly think that waxing to remove minor defects. Before applying wax you need to remove minor scratches, the traces of the dry water, the discoloration. All of this can be eliminated or smoothed out very polished. Wax just keep it clean and restored surface.

The application of car wax spray

Wax spray can be considered the easiest method of applying wax protection. Now wax spray competes with the best liquid waxes and waxes in the form of pasta. Wax sprays are applied to polymers which provide a good protection.

A protective polymer coating applied by the spray can be applied even in the sun. Of course, for the best results, it is better to use them in the shade.


To apply the wax spray, you need to first thoroughly wash the car. Next, you need to prepare a special towel for polishing. It is necessary to apply the wax and immediately grind it with a towel. Processing, therefore, the surface is best in small segments. After the processing of the entire board, you must throw in the towel and with a clean hand, you need to once again completely refinish the entire surface. In this way, it Is evenly covered with the protection of the composition.

The application of liquid wax and wax in paste form

In the past, wax in the form of a paste was most preferred, as giving a good result. Today, many manufacturers offer liquid and paste versions of the wax having the same composition. What is the difference? It all depends on the preference and the application of the method. Many people believe that paste waxes are more suitable for manual processing, while liquid waxes are more suitable for application with a polishing machine.

Do not exaggerate with the amount of the applied wax. This also applies to paste and liquid wax. The smaller, the better. You must obtain a uniform and thin layer of wax. For modern polymer waxes the thickness of the layer is not necessary. A thin layer dries faster and easier to apply.

When the application of liquid and paste waxes, follow these steps:

  • The treatment of the surface in the shade, where there is not direct light of the sun;
  • Use the special applicator recommended by the manufacturer or available in a kit with a wax. In general, suitable sponge;
  • Treat the body of the panel segments 20 and 40 inches square. Some of the products before you rub it apply to the whole of the machine;
  • The need to clarify in the instructions for your product need to wait for the wax to dry before rubbing. Some products may require drying before powdering, and some have to grind immediately after application;
  • Always use a small amount of wax to rub. The excessive use of wax, only to lose it in vain. If you apply a lot of wax and rubbed the sore, try to change the direction of the clean side of the towel and repeat the rubbing.

After the application of the wax surface should be smooth and shiny, without the streaks and drips of wax.

What if after all this work It still left streaks and areas where the wax is difficult to diagnosis. There are various techniques. The most easy need to Park my car under the sun for 10-15 minutes. The wax will heat up, but it is impossible to become hot, and again, you have to go in the shade or a garage. Next, clean it with a special towel for polishing, You can easily bleach the wax to a Shine.

The combination of ceres

methods of polishing

The people who prepare the cars for the show, often coated with wax at the top of the synthetic wax. The synthetic wax acts as a gloss layer, while the wax adds depth and a wet effect. Before applying the second layer of wax, it is necessary to give the first layer of the team. It can take 12 to 24 hours.

Transparent sealants to protect the paint

In addition to classic transparent sealers waxes are there to protect the painted surface. It is of synthetic ingredients. Substance of the painting to provide more durable protection than waxes. They are simply applied. The disadvantage is the shallow, superficial and Brightness that occur. Some waxes with natural ingredients or with a combination of natural and synthetic ingredients to give more Brightness.

Before applying sealant, you need to wash and dry the bodywork of the vehicle. Sealants to protect the paint hydrophobic, therefore, in application of the surface should not be exposed to the water.

The fundamental principle of the application of such sealants is that it is necessary to apply a thin layer and leave on for 20-30 minutes. This type of synthetic sealants are applied directly on the entire surface. It can be applied in a circular motion, evenly distributing the composition. No need to RUB the composition, as is done with the classical ceres.

Sealants can also be applied to glass, chrome and plastic.

What are the benefits of the machine wax and synthetic sealants?

  • Wax or synthetic sealant creates an invisible protective film that helps to protect the paint of a variety of environmental factors: dirt, rain, insects, and tree resin, bird droppings, etc. (the key phrase here is "helps to protect", since the wax will not give 100% protection against all aggressive effects of the environment).
  • Modern formulations of wax and synthetic sealants to protect the paint and create the protection against the UV rays of the sun.
  • The wax fills in small scratches and makes them invisible. It was clear that this effect exists, but only applies to very small scratches. Wax is not a panacea for the scratches. More scratches to be polished with abrasive polishing.
  • Wax and synthetic sealants to retain them clean and polished paint surface, and also give an extra Shine to the painted surface. Synthetic sealants to protect the paint and body are the most thin of the long-term protection of the painting. If the paint is constantly aggressive, that is, as a load part operation, sealants can save you a protective coating for months.
