Wax for the car, why it's necessary,

Modern market is full of a lot of different skin care products, both salon and the car body.

Types of wax

One of the tools that are most popular among motorists is the wax for processing of the car body.

First, let's say, what kind of wax, of which there are at the moment, and the differences between them:

  • wax, which is in the form of a spray. This type of wax, which is very easy and convenient to use and that is why this type of wax owners often treat their cars. When processing the body of the car wax spray it is worth remembering that created this type of wax film is sufficiently thin, and therefore it is necessary to repeat the treatment after 1-2 washes a car.
  • a liquid wax. Despite the fact that the liquid wax has the consistency similar to wax in spray form, the application process is different, however, and the effect of such a wax is better and a protective film, which is based on the surface of the vehicle more. Liquid wax is usually used after washing and drying the car. After using the liquid wax, be sure to dry and then remove the excess, often with suede.
  • solid (hard) wax. This type of wax, which due to its properties provides unparalleled Shine of the car, and also provides excellent protection of the body against dirt and moisture and various substances. Some experts for the best results, we recommend that you apply the hard wax in two layers with a small gap between the coating (one day is more than enough). The double processing of hard wax will protect your car on average for a few months. The disadvantages of this type of wax is the fact that independently of such a treatment is difficult to perform and therefore it is necessary to contact the professionals, which of course, brings additional costs.
  • liquid synthetic wax. This type of wax is in a liquid state and because of this it is very simple to use, but unlike a normal liquid wax, or wax-spray protective film from the cover body of a synthetic wax provides protection to the body up to six months. The truth and the cost of this wax much higher.

How to use wax, when it is better to do

Each type of wax has its advantages and, in principle, to achieve optimal shooting effect, you can alternate using different types of wax.

how to apply wax

For example, for the winter period, you need to use a synthetic wax, as it will provide the most consistent protection against the effects of water and mostly salt and other aggressive substances, which are sprayed on the roads for de-icing.

In the summer, you can give priority to the treatment of the body solid or liquid wax. When using a liquid wax don't forget to regularly repeat this procedure. It is also worth mentioning that there are a lot of modern shampoos for cars, containing in its composition of the wax.

Regular car wash with these shampoos will not only improve the car's appearance, but also provide protection of the body against the effects of moisture, synthetic and natural substances, resins and oils.

In addition to the corrosion protection treatment of the wax prevents the paint and provides some protection against mechanical damage.

Summing up logical to summarize that the processing of wax extends the life of the vehicle and the paintwork.

The hot wax is what is used for the car body

We would like to stay on such a popular service offered by most car washes as a coating of hot wax. What is it, what are the advantages of this method of coating with wax?

Wrong it can be assumed that the coating of liquid wax and hot wax are one and the same. But in fact it is not.

hot wax

For the application of hot wax, a completely different composition of the waxes, which is much more stable film on the car body, thereby providing not only a great Shine, but also good protection from the aggressive environment.

With the use of wax in a heated condition is a uniform coverage of the entire surface of the body with the micro-film that creates a protective effect.

Waxy film after this coating provides a faster drying of the vehicle, e.g., after the rain due to the hydrophilic properties of the wax.

Handling hot wax can be produced independently, but due to the nature of the technological process, it is better to entrust this procedure to professionals.

However, if you decide for the implementation of the handling of the car with hot wax yourself, be sure to acquire high quality composition.

The most popular waxes, care must be taken to NERTA HOTWAX, Red Penguin, GRASS, Hot Wax, or hot wax RM 820 ASF, which is for role, should be diluted with hot water (60-70°C).

If you want to use this hot wax spray (including high-pressure cleaners) and a regular sponge.

Also don't forget after using the composition of the wipe machine, preferably for this use the fabric from a mixture of suede, this will enhance the luster waxy coating, as a grater cloth from a mixture of suede creates the effect of polarisation.

We suggest

No matter what type of wax you choose, and in spite of all these advantages, it is not necessary to abuse the car coating wax.

Some carry out such processing after each wash, which is really not very good.

The design of multi-layer film wax, wax, of course, protects the coating, but on the other hand, it also clogs the "pores" creating a "greenhouse effect" and the impact on the nail, changing its properties.


The frequency of waxing depends on the type of wax.

If you are using a wax spray you can repeat the treatment after 1-2 washes, when using a liquid wax – once a month, when the processing of hard wax every 2-4 months after the treatment with synthetic or hot wax, repeated processing is carried out not earlier than in 4-6 months (depending on the frequency of the machine).

Abuse of wax can cause clouding of paint and even delamination of the nail.
