How to handle the body using wax

The emergence of the so-called "mistakes" in the body of the car is not the most pleasant news for his owner. Not less unpleasant situation, when the paintwork is damaged, which leads to very unpredictable consequences on the body of the vehicle from the damaged look of the look of the rusty spots.

There are many ways to protect the car body from damage of this type. You can open a special Polish and keep the car in a dry garage, carefully around each part and at the slightest hint immediately sound the alarm, but no less effective manner – handling car wax. Consider the treatment principles, types of wax and the cost of the car.

What to treat the car body with wax


Most often, services of processing of the car body wax offer on car washes. But drivers who do not know this procedure is often denied, the price for the service, as well as is not cheap. For all time of existence of the cars, the owners treated the car, from the funds on the basis of fat, a variety of chemicals, but the best is proven to the wax.

As a rule, plant protection, based on wax is used to protect the paint from exposure to various environmental factors. This forms a thin protective film, these materials will help keep the car body from rust, and cracks in paint and scratches.

It can be concluded that for the treatment of the body of the car wax, you will not only look better, but in the protection against the external environment, water throws down a lot faster from the surface of the body. As a result, the drying occurs at times faster, reduced the number of pimples after water, protects against fading of paint and varnish.

What wax is best to use for processing

The first wax material body was liquid or solid, the progress is not in place, the result is a synthetic and in the form of a spray. But the recent performance is not so good. The worst part is the wax spray because of its protective properties, enough for two or three washes, and means to cause and to buy will have more often. In comparison with other types of materials, the spray applies easily and quickly, within 15-30 minutes, you can process the full body of the car.

Liquid wax or paste is more resistant to cleaning agents and operation of external factors. The processing of the body fluid with wax, it is better to clean the surface, followed by rubbing, as with damaged surfaces and cracks. The best is a hard wax, but as noted for car owners who have had to use it – this is the hardest of all possible ways of protecting paint surface.

Apply the hard wax needs to dry the surface, work takes a lot of time, and if we take into account the hot weather and direct sun is better, it may take up to one day. The protection effect of such a wax film is quite long, about 3-4 months, with good resistance to harsh environmental factors (dirt, salt on roads in winter, rain, snow and cold). The most persistent, it is considered synthetic, it is the most resistant against the impact of external factors and can retain its properties within a period of six months. In addition to the means for processing the vehicle body of synthetic wax added to car shampoos.

In addition to the classification of the wax properties, it is divided according to the type of use. For cold uses include preparations that contain the active the active substance and a wax emulsion in sufficient quantity. Typically, such a wax is applied by hand. The main disadvantage of these types of vulnerabilities, often after each washing need to re-apply a layer of wax.

The other type of wax for processing of the car body is hot. The type of core material the main portion is made up of fats or synthetic origin. According to experts, is recognized as the highest quality Carnauba wax. For managing the vehicle body in such a wax, you must heat up to 90 degrees Celsius. At home, in order to perform such a procedure is practically impossible, because the tool after warmed up almost immediately freezes. The cost of the material, which also is not cheap, but the resulting film maintains its properties for up to one year.

The last type of wax on the technology of the use of foam. The composition of the wax composed from the same substances, and for use hot, but the technology application is different. This requires special equipment that is able to create a special foam, i.e. its emulsion to the mixing of air, the specific composition and water. Due to the pressure under which the foam is applied to a surface, this method has received the best results for the grip and use. Polishing is caused by the foam much easier than hot wax.

Choice of the wax for processing of the car body, it is necessary to take into account its origin. Leading manufacturers, divide it into four main types, plants, minerals, animals, and synthetic. Given that the properties of each type are almost identical, this option is almost not taken in account, the choice of material for the processing of the car body.

How to choose the wax for processing of the car body


Choice of the wax for processing of the body of the car is suited very carefully, as some of the factors which will depend on the outcome, how will look the final result. The first thing that you should pay attention to the price of one set are often cheapest to lose their properties, until the date which is stated on the packaging.

For the treatment of the body of the car is not older than five years, it's better to use liquid or solid wax. The paintwork is not as "tired" and the film sets evenly. Cars age (5 years), it is preferable to use metal compounds or Polish to wax. In this case, it is better to fill in the cracks and defects in colour.

This is very important for all new cars, it is better to not use products that contain abrasive elements, otherwise you can damage the nail!

Abrasives are most commonly used for car paint, that has obvious defects (cracks and the fading paint). By choosing this material, you should consider the hardness as you need to effectively smooth out the cracks refinishing or repair of other defects.

How to handle the body using wax

According to the wishes of the owner of the car, the handling of the car with wax you can manually or with tools. Most offer manual options for the treatment of the body with wax, but if you choose the hot treatment of the body, I cannot do without special tools. For each type of wax you can tell, its own technology of coating and processing, but there are basic rules that should be adhered to.

Regardless of the type and method of application, the first thing is to wash the car body from dirt and other substances. This is best done with a pressure wash and contactless use of the foam.

In any case, it is not recommended to wax in direct sunlight or hot summer weather. In this case, the wax is already cold, very quickly, and instead of a shiny surface will turn matt ball.

Graph processing body wax is simple, in any case, it is necessary to give the body to dry completely, do not put wax on the wet surface, it is immediately thrown down. The process begins with a thin, even layer of wax on the surface of the body, it is best to do small areas, and to achieve a greater effect, a mixture is recommended to RUB with a cloth. After complete drying, re-wiped with a felt or wool fabric. Is to wipe with a circular motion, in this case, the wax must be limited to the surface and fill all the cracks. It is not recommended to body polishing with machine polishing, the wax, the film is very thin and in fact, will not be able to perform the tasks. The whole process should start from the top to the bottom, so that the cloth or fabric does not pick up small grains of sand, so there is no scratching of the car color.

Statistics show HUNDREDS of different most of the demand for liquid wax and spray cans, such as their use will not be great time, and the price is not so exaggerated. Synthetic and hard wax for the treatment of the body, which can last from half a day, whole day, in addition to the price is significantly more than in the previous two options.

The advantages and disadvantages of treatment of a car body wax

As each process, the processing of the body of the car wax has a positive and negative side. On the positive side is of course the result, as a rule, the paintwork is restored, cleaned all the cracks and restores the saturation of color of color. In addition, various weather conditions, the wax treatment will show its best side, in rainy weather the water from the machine will be faster a page, while after drying, the surface will appear white tiny spots. In the winter, the wax treatment car body protect against salt corrosion and damage from the icy crust, which means that the body will last longer.

However, there is a negative side to the treatment of the body of the car in the first place is the price. Often choose the cheaper option, expecting the same effect as in the treatment of solid or synthetic waxes. Even the most simple procedure, that takes at least one hour and the quality will go throughout the day. Believe me, that would kill the whole day for the processing of the body of wax will not all. Another disadvantage is the processing process, it is necessary to carefully choose the time and weather conditions, because the ambient temperature must be moderate and out of direct sunlight. Wet weather is also not suitable, the wax simply will not cling to the surface of the body of the car.
