In this way, You evenly covered with a protective composition.

The use of liquid wax and wax in paste form

In the past, wax in the form of a paste was most preferred because it gives good results. Today many manufacturers offer liquid and paste versions of the wax having the same composition. What is their difference? It all depends on the desires and the use of the method. Many people believe that paste waxes are better suited for manual processing, while liquid waxes are more suitable for use with a polishing machine.

No need to overdo it with the quantity of used wax. This also applies to paste and liquid wax. The smaller, the better. To get a uniform thin layer of wax. For a modern polymer waxes thick layer is not needed. A thin layer dries faster and easier to use.

In the application of liquids and pastes, waxes, follow these steps:

  • Treatment areas in the shade where no direct sunlight;
  • Use the special applicator recommended by the manufacturer, or is available in a kit with the wax. Generally suitable sponge;

  • The modern definition of a wax and synthetic sealants to protect the paint and create protection from UV rays.
