Wax for cars: all about and the nuances of its use

Liquid wax for cars — the substance, the manipulation of vehicle refinishing. This helps to preserve the original color of the car and neutralizes the defects and damage. The material is classified as "chemicals", and therefore require special conditions of storage and use.


Why is it necessary

Car Polish has a limited operational period. At the time, the color fades and is formed on the surface of the injury. Wax for the car body are used for solving:

  • scratch;
  • microcracks;
  • chipped.

The substance that fills defects on the surface of the car, which has a flat, smooth surface. The hydrophobic protective film that is formed after hardening of the mixture, gives it shine and Luster. In addition, the coating machine wax provides body security properties. Reduces the impact on the paint layer machine:

  • ultraviolet radiation;
  • chemicals;
  • dust and dirt;
  • detergents.

To cover the body fluid in Valvoline must be at least twice. This condition gives the existence of an appropriate protective film on the surface of the vehicle.

Types and popular manufacturers

The polymer wax is produced and sold in different forms. There are three types of classification: by mode of application, form of construction and composition. At the first sign of material:

  • cold;
  • hot;
  • Penn.

Depending on the form of production there are the following types of waxes:

  • solid;
  • fluid;
  • spray.

The composition of the liquid material is divided into 4 categories:

  • mineral;
  • synthetic;
  • animals;
  • plant.

Each type has its own characteristics. If you want to choose the best option, you need to take into account the advantages and disadvantages of each.


cold wax

Cold wax includes a group of liquid substances. Are produced on the basis of a synthesis of the the active active agents and emulsified wax. Material is used for the hand. The substance, which is eliminated from the body after washing the car surface. For the maintenance of the protection, the mixture is regularly applied to the surface of the car. It is advisable to cover the body of the substance after washing.

The mixture fills microdamages. Its disadvantage is the short-term impact. Because of this, there is a large consumption of the substance.


Hot wax is a substance that is produced in the form of fat. The product is divided into two categories depending on the ingredients: natural and artificial. Candelilla types is better in terms of quality, the other products of this type.

Composition of the material contains corrosion inhibitors. This factor improves the performance of the vehicle.

After application to the surface of the mixture retain their properties during the year. The product has a high price, but has a low flow rate. The main disadvantage of the mixture — melting point of +90 degrees Celsius. Because of this work, with this substance at home difficult. The Material is melted in hot water, but can have a negative impact on its properties.

The minimum interval of the use of a protective mixture — 6 months.

The current

Liquid wax — a substance that is produced for a single application to the body of the vehicle. The advantage of this type — long period of validity and ease of use. Substance is used for the vehicle part and is pounded with a soft cloth.

Liquid form for application time, excess spray, but worse solid counterpart. Before the use of the substance on the surface of the vehicle is washed and dried.


The solid wax material, whereby a long-lasting effect in comparison with analogues. The product has a high price, but its protective properties are retained in the period from 3 to 6 months.

In quality this species is inferior only synthetic. The main condition for the use of the fully dry surface. The disadvantage of this product lies in the complex process of treatment

spray wax

The substance, which refers to the cold category.

How to make the most

For the production of de Valvoline with your hands, you will need to buy the following components:

  • 25 grams of Carnauba wax in flakes;
  • 5 grams of paraffin wax;
  • 40 grams of coconut oil;
  • 15 grams of pine turpentine.

In a metal container placed flakes. The component, which is melted with the help of the water bath. Then it is added to the paraffin. The melting of the elements continues until the change in the smooth consistency of the yellow color.

In the next phase, the substance is added to the coconut oil. The mixture is stirred, until it acquires the same color. After that add the pine turpentine. For its calculation it is advisable to use a syringe. The standard component is 10-15 cubic meters.

If no turpentine is allowed to use pink or other oils with a bold, easy to evaporation.

The mixture is poured into the jar, where it cools to room temperature. Ready substance, which is used for the coating than conventional liquid wax.

How to use

Use the mixture on the car body is in two ways:

  • manual;
    with the use of special tools.
  • The second method is applicable only, if it is hot. In all other cases, the surface of the body to be processed manually.
polishing before after

The body must be cleaned of dirt and dust and dry. For this purpose, the most suitable pressure washer for elimination of pollution of any complexity. Next, the coating treatment. For each type provides its own user manual. No matter what material is selected for surface treatment, correctly apply the mixture in a closed room or shed where the sun does not reach. Sun substance freezes quickly, forming a Mat, not shiny surface.

How to apply liquid wax on the car

Liquid wax is diluted in water. The temperature of the water, which is stated on the packaging. The substance used on the wet surface. The difference between the temperature of the coating and with water, the diluted mixture must not be more than 20 degrees.
