Why is it important to regularly polishing for body and exposed metal parts and components, we have talked. Not only restores the beautiful luster and appearance, but also successfully fights with minor flaws, such as cracks, chips, rust.

There are many cosmetic products to make the car look more appealing to the eyes of others. These are usually sold in tubes, bottles, aerosols, and therefore does not require any polirovochnyh machines for applying. Unfortunately, are not available for all categories of drivers, which is why many of them are considering how to make a car wax at home.
Before proceeding to the development of domestic production, it is to be noted that any poliruyuzhego type must contain a certain amount of abrasives. The other important element is the binder component, in other words, the Foundation, which may be both liquid and the silicone.
Preparation of abrasive material for cleaning of the body is reduced to the following steps:• you need to burn a small amount of paint (about 200 g), but it is necessary, that it was hromososoderzhazhei. This can be done on a campfire or with the soldering iron;
Now you need to make a binder component in the image of the one that is used in known pasta GOI. With this purpose it is necessary to mix together 2 parts tallow, 1 part of acetic acid. Mix all of this with 7 parts of chromium oxide and a few drops of kerosene. Derived components will better match if they are in the process of mixing a little warm.
Another recipe that is associated with the preparation of resources for the renewal of paint, if the coating has suffered damage. This can be done at home, if you are using regular clay. Even a small amount in 100 grams will be enough for you to perform polishing up to 10-fold. All the processes are strictly carried out cloth based on microfibre because it is a different delicate surface structure.
Another popular tool, which is also restore the paintwork on the car is the so-called "wax Polish". This can be bought in any Autoshop, but it's easy to do yourself, to save money. We will need beeswax, which is best to purchase from a trusted supplier, that the product was really good quality. The second component is regular turpentine. Wax finely sliced, crumbled and melted in the liquid state to the steam bath or in the microwave.
In one part of hot wax poured the same amount of turpentine with constant stirring, ensuring even distribution. After this polishing wax is poured in container or jar and wait full cooling. Instead of turpentine, you can use ordinary vegetable oil, which creates a fat basis.
Now a few words about how to apply Polish on the vehicle body. Before the procedure, you need to prepare the necessary tools: gloves, mask or respirator to protect your lungs, a soft sponge, fibru for manual polishing.
Deserves special attention the preparation of the car for polishing. The car should be washed and cleaned of the remains of any existing contamination. When the body is sufficiently dry, the treated area is useful for further degreased with diluted white spirit. Before install the new Polish, remove the remains of the old to allow the composition to gain a foothold on the surface.
For the implementation of the polishing of the procedure in a ventilated garage, if the light is enough. However, it is best to do this under the open sky, in dry weather at temperatures from 10 to 30 degrees Celsius. It is desirable that the top was a crown, which will eliminate the ingress of dirt, dust, or unwanted light, which distort the perception.
Of course, this wax is easy to purchase in a specific store. But, if it is possible to make the wax yourself, why not use it? In addition, the time it will take a bit, but at the price of ingredients is much cheaper for the final product.
Benefits polirovochnogo wax

Why wax? The composition of the wax, which is composed of three large groups of substances: esters, free fatty acids, and carbohydrates. Wax is oxidized very slowly, so that oxidation can be neglected. In some favorable conditions, the wax retains its properties for centuries, even millennia. Because tyaguchesti material, boiling in beeswax, more than any other wax. Beeswax is completely resistant to moisture, but also be associated with the solvent, making the wax, which is the best basis for making emulsions. Polishing wax gives the wood a silky and soft shine.
In addition, bee's wax emulsion, based on it can be a great alternative for a lot of varnishes that contain harmful chemicals, which are persistent bad breath, which is still in the room, for a long time, even after the varnish has dried. But polirovochnaya a mixture of beeswax, on the contrary, absolutely environment-friendly, odorless and highly resistant to external impacts, after the application for the wooden surface.
Not polishing the mix
There are a few recipes polirovochnyh mixture. Everywhere, where it is the main ingredient acts as a beeswax. On the basis of the ratio of the constituents of the mixture which may be liquid, pasty or solid. More specifically, the density of the mixture depends on the amount used of the solvent: the more, the more fluid is the mix.

But this in no way relates to the final polirovochnoi mixture based on turpentine, the greater risk you have in a process mixture.
Instead of turpentine, you can use other cleaners, such as various vegetable oils. In principle, you can use any of them. Often, especially for cooking polirovochnoi mixture with olive oil. In addition to the oil and wax you don't need anything more. Polirovochnaya mixture based on olive oil can be used to cover all types of wood.

Or RUB back into the car wax and how to do it correctly? Look at the motorists on this account are divided, some for and some against. How to wax and what effect it provides. For the treatment of the body you can use natural and vegetable waxes(for example Carnauba wax). The physical properties of natural and synthetic waxes are very similar. So wax their fat, like the texture with a melting point of from 40 to 90 degrees, do not dissolve in water, not reaction with acids and bases.
What to expect the effect of working off the wax?
Wax, which has long been used for the treatment of the body, to make the elegant look of the car. But in addition, this wax protects the car against various external influences. When the machine surface is rubbed with the wax, is heated, melts and penetrates into all the cracks that are on the surface of the body. As a result of this process, the surface of the car is aligned. Area of the body becomes smooth, so the sun's rays are reflected, not scattered in this case and because of this, creating such an effect, is a mirror image effect.
In addition, that car lights up like new, the wax that protects the paintwork of the car. The wax forms on the reverse side of some of the hydrophobic film whose properties are to alienate the water. Because the wax does not react with bases and acids, it also protects the body from any chemicals and some natural substances, such as resin of coniferous trees. From the surface of the grated wax resin easier to rinse off and not leave even a trace. As well as other dirt will be easier to slip away in the washes, respectively, of the body is more protected from minor cracks, which may arise from the washing of cars.
The advantages and disadvantages of wax.
For the treatment of the body uses three technologies:• Treatment with cold wax;
What is the difference between them? The hot wax before using the first diluted in hot water, then applied to the body. This method helps to obtain a fairly thick layer of wax that protects the machine, not only a variety of contaminants, but also against corrosion. Disadvantage of this wax is rapidly consolidating, it can be easily nalipnut dust, the resulting machine may not as much Shine.
Cold wax is applied to the surface of the body by rubbing the surface of the paint. It is much easier to use and creates a mirror Shine and protects the surface from damage and microcracks. However, the degree of protection is much lower than that of hot wax.
Solid wax provides a longer lasting effect, it is enough to apply 3-4 times a month. The hard wax is much harder to apply on the surface of the car, but provides a better protective effect and a more attractive look.
To preserve the vehicle in its original state, is the ordinary care for the protection of paint materials. For this there are many hard waxes designed to protect the car body from damage from the environment.
What for the protection of the solid wax in the first place: the fading of color on the UV light. — bitumen points on the body. — damage coatings under the influence of reagents (salts) in the winter.
The use of solid wax, which does not require special skills and can be done at home.1. Thoroughly wash the car.
After processing the body of the car shines like new. Hides small scratches. The device becomes more resistant to stains, such as water with dirt completely roll off the color of your car.
For a permanent effect it is necessary to use hard wax with a frequency of once in two months.
