Frequently Asked Questions

What is the effect of car wax?

Car Wax provides protection against scratches and rusting. When car wax is applied, it provides a thin layer of protection to the clear coat of paint on top of the body. As you wash the vehicle, whether by hand or through a car wash, the scrubbing motion will grind small dirt particles into the body and can leave scratches.

How often should you wax your car?

At the very least, you must wax your car three times in a year to keep your car in a very good shape.

Does car wax stay on after car wash?

Does car washing remove wax? Washing your car will degrade the wax to some extent, but it will not remove it completely if you use a pH neutral car shampoo. Frequent washing can reduce the durability of the wax, however, it’s important to keep your car well maintained by washing it regularly.

Is it advisable to wax your car after spraying?

It is very advisable to wax your car directly after spraying to preserve and protect the colour. This is a good practice you must add to your arsenal to always keep your car shining.

Can Car Wax Remove Light Scratches?

By using car wax on your car, the clear-coat layer of the paint will be masked by incorporating an even coat of wax, which in short can mask the scratch but will not eradicate the scratch entirely – only make it less noticeable.

How long does spray wax last on a car?

A good paste or spray wax can protect your paint for 1 – 3 months, depending on how you care for your car between waxing. This sacrificial layer will protect a car from some of the damage from environmental factors, such as overspray, rail dust, etc.

How long does auto wax take to dry?

Put simply, car wax is for protection and enhancement by filling in minor paintwork imperfections whereas car polish is for flattening and levelling paintwork by using abrasive chemicals.

What is the difference between car polish and wax?

Wax doesn’t take long to dry, and there’s no need to leave it on the paint for more than 20 to 30 minutes. During this time you can detail the interior of your car, or grab a quick snack. Once you can swipe your finger across the wax and it doesn’t streak, you’re golden.
