The ultimate car paint protection question

When and why would you use a Car Wax over a Sealant or vice versa?

You have a huge variety of options when it comes to protecting and enhancing your cars paintwork. But which one is best for you? In short, it comes down to personal preference, how often you drive your car, how much time you have and how durable you want your finish to be. Nevertheless, keep reading so you can reach your own decision...  

A bit about the product: waxes are are usually a blend of various organic materials like Carnauba wax, sourced from leaves of the Brazilian Palm Tree. Solvents are obtained from crude oil to make the wax spread smoothly and oils like linseed to are added to improve gloss and aid lubrication.Over recent years, car wax has evolved to much more, with blends of synthetic polymers and resins to boost aesthetics and improve performance. 

Automotive waxes are one of the oldest forms of protection for a cars paintwork and provide a warm, deep, gloss finish which can be hard to achieve using a synthetic sealant. They are also (in our opinion) incredibly therapeutic to use! Delicately applying a wax on a perfectly prepped car is somewhat satisfying, however, they tend not to last as long as a synthetic sealant. Most natural based waxes will last anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months if applied and maintained correctly, but is still widely used across the detailing community.

Now lets talk about paint sealants...

Often made up of various man-made synthetic polymers and resins, they offer something more than just a bit of protection. The miniature particles within paint sealants link together and literally bond to your cars paint, acting like a crystal clear shell on top of the car for an impressive amount of time.

Over more recent years, paint sealants have developed outstanding properties that have made them increasingly popular within the detailing community. 

There are numerous reasons why paint sealants are becoming increasingly more popular for weekend warriors and professionals. They're easy to use- sealants are essentially a wipe on wipe off application and provide exceptional protection against UV rays, heat, and general environmental elements.

However, the major advantage of using a paint sealant over have over wax is the durability they provide- our paint sealant Hydro-Eclipse can last up to 5-7 months if applied and maintained correctly.

Overall, we think it comes down to personal preference and what outcome you are after. There are advantages to both protection products- if you enjoy spending time detailing your car and achieving those warm, deep, paint popping results then a car wax is for you. If you prefer to get durability and maximum protection, paint sealants is ideal.

 

A meticulous tip from us: If you can't decide, you can enjoy the durability of paint sealants and the deep glow of wax. By layering the two, you’ll get the extended protection provided from the sealant and the natural glisten of a wax to make your paint pop. Job done!
