Car wax is a product that protects and enhances a car’s paint coating. Wax is best used after cleaning and polishing to make your car’s paintwork shine. It does this by smoothing out the painted surface by filling swirls and scratches with a protective coating. So instead of removing a fine layer of paint like polish does, car wax smooths out over on top the paint.So simply speaking, polish removes and wax smooths!
The most common ingredient found in many car waxes is carnauba wax. This specific ingredient works great in auto wax because it will not wash away in water, it can withstand high heat, and it provides a beautiful, glossy finish when formulated with other ingredients. Many waxes will be a mix of natural waxes like carnauba wax, solvents, and colorants. Some waxes like our Ultimate Shine Paste wax have UV inhibitors that will further protect your car’s paint from fading cause by the sun’s rays.
