Paste Waxes vs. Liquid Waxes – Which One to Choose

Introduction to Car Paint Wax:

Car owners know that no matter how much you love your car and how often you take care of it, it goes through very rough conditions on regular basis.           HandApplyWG01 First there is the sunlight with UV rays that damage the paint surface and then there is road grime, brake dust, bird droppings, tree sap, dust in the air and mud on the road. Some of these conditions are bad for the chassis or body of the car where some are bad for the paint surface and let’s face it, paint is the most important element that we love about a car. This is where the key focus of every person lies. So, that makes it more important to keep a shine paint and glossy look on the car.

Paint polishers are best known for bringing out the best shine on the paint surface but if they are used alone, the shine won’t last long. With each passing day, the car will start looking like old and dirty. For this purpose, we use wax and paint sealants. There is a small difference in wax and paint sealant but ultimately they both perform the same job; protect the shine of the paint. Paint Wax is available in different forms including Paste, Liquid and Spray. Each has their own benefits and advantages and perks over other form.

When to choose Paste Wax?

The reason for that is because it brings out deeper shine and more glossy look on the paint. Although using paste wax is a little complicated because you have to be a little expert in this area but at the end, the results are extraordinary. Paste Wax works great with hand pucks, rotary machines and DA machines. As you already know that Carnauba Beads are the key ingredient in any wax and when it comes to paste wax, it includes major part of these magic beads. A detailed wax on the car paint with Paste Wax will last from 1-3 months depending on the use of the car and weather conditions. You just need to spare couple of hours of your busy routine once every two months to wax the car and by looking at the end results, this work is not that hard.

When to choose Liquid Wax?

It can be because with paste wax, you see an actual layer of the wax on paint surface that you can buff with towel but with liquid wax, there is no visible layer on the paint and it’s just like working with imaginary ingredient. And, even if there is just a little difference in the amount of shine and gloss on the paint surface, at the end only an expert can tell if you used liquid or paste wax. Application and use of liquid wax is easier than paste wax and the car owners who don’t mind doing it more often, usually go with liquid wax. The protection lasts for 6-8 weeks but the application and buffing time is shorter as compared to paste wax. So, at the end the choice comes to you that if you want longer protection by spending a little more time or you want to do it more often in just 10-15 minutes’ worth of your time.
