wax film
  1. Properties:
  • spray is the most convenient from the point of view of speed and simplicity of application, but also the least durable. Ideal for extra "embellishment" of the vehicle;
  • the liquid is quite stable and easy to use – simply apply and RUB the tool on the washed surface;
  • solid – has a way of application, which is made only on a completely dry surface. The process itself is long and rather laborious, but the effect will last from 3 to 6 months;
  • synthetic is the most durable and most resistant to adverse external factors. Apply no more often than once in six months.
  1. Depending on the application method of release:
  • cold wax – the basic components of such tools are wax emulsion and a cationic surfactant. The use of this substance for any car owner. Cold wax composition fills all pinholes, gives the car a neat appearance and protects the surface of the body. The only significant disadvantage is the fragility of the wax coating, so it is recommended to apply it after every second wash;
  • hot wax is a very stable transparent pingue substance that consists of natural or artificial ingredients. Very often the composition includes chemical compounds that slow the corrosion process. This tool is melted in hot water (40 to 90°C), and then manually applied on the car and raspolirovyvayut. Price of hot wax for the car is quite high but is justified given that the application is done every 6 to 12 months.
  • foam wax – are very similar to hot. One of the major differences is the need to use special equipment for applying the foam, which, creating spuma emulsion ensures an even distribution of the composition on the surface of the car and durability.

The application of liquid wax

To give lavit car a bit (but not completely) dry. Meanwhile, in warm water to dissolve the wax in the proportions specified by the manufacturer. Evenly spray the resulting solution on the paint surface, leave for a few minutes. Excess rinse with water. To eliminate the extra moisture, you can flare the vehicle with warm air, after which Polish the body with a soft cloth.

Applying cold wax

In connection with the fragility of the coating, the cold wax is applied after 1-2 washes. Fortunately, this process does not take much time. The composition is simply sprayed on the car, and excess is washed with water.

The application of hot wax

When buying such a tool should first ask you what color the vehicle it was designed for. Car wax is diluted in hot water, put on the car with a soft sponge and Polish cloth. Make sure that the car did not fall to direct sunlight.

Waxing requires special skills and knowledge, and therefore, if it is not possible to produce it at the car wash, the procedure is carried out independently and is for experienced drivers no more than 30 minutes.
