Better to Polish the car?

All of them (methods), and polishing) followed by two main goals – restore the color and give the car fresh, but also protect the paint from exposure to the elements (rain, snow, etc).

For the protection of the body

polishing wax

More common and often more affordable option is protective polishing. Its main task is to create a thin transparent layer between the atmosphere and the color of the machine, that repelled water, dirt, etc most Often this role is fulfilled by so-called hard wax.

It is used on the body, dampened with a soft cloth, at least in the form of a spray, and after some time it dries, which makes the machine... the Mat. The last step is the actual polishing. This cured composition is really reminiscent of a thin layer of dry wax, light soft natural fabric (if done at home), or a polishing machine with a circle (the result is usually the same, except that the first option, which takes more time).

By polishing, it is recommended that you perform twice a year, in autumn and spring. The necessity of iteration stems from the fact that it uses the wax is washed off in the sink (the exact number of water treatment, to define difficult, it all depends on the density of the active foam, the temperature and water pressure, etc).

After the coating of hard wax machine would be better for the Shine and not the protective layer, are formed. When the car drips a drop of water, not to stay, and roll, or accept the lumps and movement of the fly, without stopping on the body.

For grown-up glitter

Another popular type of restorative polishing (sometimes referred to as an expert, or abrasive). This process usually consists of three or four stages. In each of them machine polished machine structures with different task from the larger to the smaller. The first or second type of nail Polish removing micron layer of paint/Polish from the car, and the next gives it Shine in color.
The main objective of restorative polishing the body gets rid of the small shallow scratches. It is recommended to perform such polishing once a year, to avoid unnecessary violence of color, and a large number of scratches it is necessary to collect.

Usually for professional polishing use liquid or paste-like compositions, at least - aerosol. Along with them is to be used for the polishing wheels of various hardness. Buy the whole set of tools and machinery in the bargain, there is no sense due to the low consumption and the high cost of these materials, go to the station. Just keep in mind that the cost of restoration polishing a few times more than wax.

Victims of marketing

The most popular and often impose on us, on the sinks service is a liquid wax. It is used with the sprayer is under pressure. Can you tell us about its protective properties at the level of the solid wax. But it is actually a liquid wax just makes it much simpler to wipe the car after washing, it is slipping water and a cloth or brush glides better. Perhaps this is a liquid polymer material is better than nothing, but quickly washed off, and the layer formed is very thin. So its cost you can save.


Automotive stores sell a lot of households, household polishes for use by the owner of the car. They have a different purpose and cost, but is usually directed in the short-term increase in gloss of the paint, the coating machine. If you want to look after four-wheeled friend, of course, give him their attention. But the maximum result is possible only with the industrial car of cosmetics and good equipment.
