Product description

Clay

  • Removes contaminants from clear-coat that normal washing/ polishing will not, but does not remove any of the clear-coat itself

  • Compounding or polishing could remove these contaminants, but microscopically removes some of the clear-coat

  • Clay leaves the surface 100% clean before applying wax, allowing it to protect and last longer

  • This gives the ULTIMATE SMOOTH and SHINY FINISH

 

Teflon

  • Teflon is a paint SEALANT as opposed to a wax, which is only a barrier

  • Teflon molecularly bonds with the clear-coat, thus sealing the paint

  • Wax can be applied over a Teflon, but not before since the wax forms a barrier–– therefore not allowing the Teflon to bond with the clear-coat

  • Teflon lasts twice as long as wax

 

Wax

  • Wax provides both shine and protection

  • We recommend that all vehicles have at least bi-annual coatings of wax with maintenance waxes in between

  • There are two types of waxes: (Carnauba Wax is our choice)

    • Organic: base product is the same in ALL waxes; beeswax. Byproducts are added by various producers in order to enhance shine, longevity, and protection.

    • Synthetic: a combination of various man-made polymers come together to produce the same as organic based waxes.

 

Compound

  • Compounds are a liquid/paste product used for removing heavy scratches that have not gone right through the paint to the base-coat

  • Compounds remove a very fine layer of the clear-coat 

 

polish

  • Polish is a micro-abrasive product designed to eliminate swirls left by compounding and other light surface scratches
