The modern market is full of huge variety of skin care products, both salon and the car body.
One of the tools most popular among motorists is the wax for processing of the car body.
First, let's consider what types of wax exist at the moment, and the difference between them:
Each type of wax has its advantages and, in principle, to achieve optimal effect, you can alternate the use of different types of wax.
For example, for the winter period, you should use a synthetic wax, as it will provide the most consistent protection from the effects of water and particularly salt and other aggressive substances sprayed on roads for de-icing.
In the summer, you can give preference to the treatment of the body solid or liquid wax. When using liquid wax doesn't forget to regularly repeat this procedure. Also worth mentioning that there are many modern shampoos for cars, containing in its composition a 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 from mechanical damage.
Summing up logical to summarize that the processing of wax extends the life of the car's paintwork.
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?
Wrongly it can be assumed that the coating of liquid wax and hot wax are one and the same. But in fact it is not.
For coating of hot wax, a totally different composition of waxes, forming a much more stable film on the car body, thus providing not only a great Shine, but also good protection from aggressive environment.
By applying the wax in a heated condition there is a uniform coverage of the entire surface of the body of micro-film, creating a protective effect.
Waxy film after this coating provides a faster drying of the vehicle, e.g., after a rain due to the hydrophilic properties of the wax coating.
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 to undertake the handling of the car with hot wax yourself, be sure to acquire high quality composition.
Of the most popular waxes should pay attention to NERTA HOTWAX, Red Penguin, GRASS Hot Wax or hot wax RM 820 ASF, which for application should be diluted with hot water (60-70°C).
To apply this hot wax spray (including with high-pressure cleaners) and regular sponge.
Also don't forget after applying the composition to wipe the machine, preferably for this use the fabric from suede, this will enhance the luster waxy coating, as grater cloth of suede creates the effect of polarization.
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.
Forming a multilayer film of wax, the wax, of course, protects the coating, but on the other hand, it also clogs the "pores" creating a "greenhouse effect" and affects the nail, changing its properties.
The frequency of waxing depends on the type of wax.
If you use a wax spray you can repeat the treatment after 1-2 washes, when using a liquid wax – once a month, when machining 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 frequency of washing machine).
Abuse of wax can cause clouding of paint and even delamination of the varnish.
