If we want the spray on our car to maintain its perfect appearance for as long as possible, we need to regularly apply car wax to the surface of the body. It seems like a simple task, but already at the stage of choosing a product, some difficulties may arise. It turns out that there are many of them on the market and the question may arise, which wax to choose for a car? To answer this question, we will compile a list and choose the best car wax.
Types of automatic wax
There are indeed many types of car waxes. Choosing the most suitable one for our needs will depend on four parameters: the time you want to spend on the application, the durability (the time when the wax will stay on the surface of the machine), the visual effect and the hydrophobic effect.
Spray wax is a great choice if you want a good effect in a very short time. Machine spraying wax is suitable as an additional layer on previously applied wax or adhesive.
Most aerosol waxes are synthetic or hybrid waxes. So they will give an excellent effect of hydrophobicity (removal of water) and radiation.
There are also spray waxes on the market that can be applied to wet and dry spray - ADBL Synthetic Spray Wax. This wax works well with spray, and its use dramatically reduces machine care time.
Strong waxes (climbing)
Strong waxes are probably the most popular type. In stores, you can find natural, synthetic and hybrid options. Natural carnival waxes are almost always in solid form.
Strong wax in cars is most often chosen by professional vehicle detailing studios. To apply them you will need a sponge applicator, microfiber and a lot of time. According to hobbyists, waxing is the most enjoyable car care experience.
Strong waxes are characterized by high strength and resistance to environmental influences. They also provide excellent color depth.
Synthetic car wax is the work of modern polymer technologies. They work by tightly bonding polymer particles to car paint. As a result, synthetic waxes offer a high level of protection and resistance to environmental factors. However, each wax-based polymer will be slightly different. Some will have excellent water resistance (hydrophobicity), others will have properties that fill small scratches, others will keep the dust from settling.
Thanks to their high degree of protection, synthetic waxes are ideal for winter spray protection.
Their composition is based on natural carnauba wax obtained from the leaves of the Brazilian palm and beeswax. Carnauba is unbeatable in hardness as it is the hardest wax found in nature.
When you find out that a wax contains 100% carnation in the packaging of a product, you can be sure it is of the highest quality. The use of such a product guarantees a very high level of gloss.
Natural car wax usually has a more pleasant, neutral odor without oil odor (as is the case with synthetics and hybrids). Ideal for spring and summer.
Their composition combines the best carnival properties and synthetic polymer blends. The result of this combination is a long service life, excellent color depth and a high level of varnish protection. Hybrid waxes, like synthetic wax, will work well in the fall and winter.
Which car wax is best?
There are waxes available on the market that leave a more or less difficult finish on the vehicle. The advantage of soft waxes is that they are easy to apply and polish. In addition, they leave no streaks and guarantee a good shine. Unfortunately, they are not resistant to adverse weather conditions.
On the other hand, hard waxes must be applied very accurately, because if we do it wrong, streaks will appear on the machine. They are not easily removed, stick well in the vehicle and are not consumed quickly. If you have little experience with waxing a machine, we recommend that you buy strong formulations.
