Looking to get that showroom-fresh shine on your car – and want to ensure it lasts? Whether you’re working by hand or with an electric buffer, here’s the Turtle Wax guide to using specialist automotive wax to get your panels gleaming with a durable protective finish.
Few of us have the luxury to spend countless hours pampering our vehicles. However, by using the right car-care products, it takes only a fraction of that time to transform dull, tired paintwork into a mirror-like professional finish. Doing so can help protect your panels against future damage from the sun plus environmental and cosmetic factors, as well as maintain your model’s beauty and value.
Most of car wax tend to consist of the carnauba wax, which derives from Brazilian palm leaves and is used in many commercial industries. It is then supplemented by other natural waxes and synthetic polymers, which gives your car surface that deep glossy shine at the end of the car waxing process. We have a number of different wax product formulas due to specially developed formulas, such as our Hybrid Technology, which allows you to pick and choose the right product for you depending on desired application method and final result.
Our range of car waxes is extensive and covers all of the previously mentioned types of car wax so you can choose the product that is right for you and your requirements. The budget-friendly products also allow you to test a couple of different formulations without breaking the bank.
Ensure that your car has been freshly washed and rinsed prior to starting the waxing process.
The process takes a little longer, but the result will be well worth your elbow grease.
Due to black car paintwork showing up imperfections more easily, specialized coloured wax products are recommended for a flawless finish. Turtle Wax have a range of black wax and polish products specially made for black cars that fix the imperfections and help protect the black paintwork which can often suffer from UV damage and swirl marks.
We recommend using the Turtle Wax Color Magic Jet Black Wax with an industry leading black tinted formula.
Step 1: Shake well prior to the application. Apply on a clean surface and out of direct sunlight.
Step 2: Test product on a small area to check the colour match.
Step 3: Apply a small amount of product onto a damp foam applicator or cloth and spread evenly on one section at a time.
Step 4: Allow to dry to a haze. Step 5: Remove excess with a soft cloth. Buff lightly to enhance gloss and colour depth.
