What’s the truth about the mythical „Carnauba wax“
Again and again we read that polishing with carnauba wax works real car care miracles. That’s why Christian D. wants to know: Is it true that perfect paintwork care can be achieved with pure carnauba wax. The short answer is no. Pure carnauba wax would not be of much use for car care. This is because the product obtained from the Brazilian carnauba palm is much too hard in its natural state to be immediately applicable for car care. Therefore, it has to be processed and blended with other components to become a practically applicable care product. Then, however, carnauba wax is really remarkable: It optimally protects the paintwork against all harmful external impacts and gives it an incomparable deep shine.
When the care product has a wax content of 100 percent carnauba wax, then you have the highest quality possible – like the new SONAX Premium Class carnauba care. Other active ingredients, such as nurturing oils supply the paintwork with substances, which are indispensable for long lasting protection.
In combination with proper paintwork preparation, the SONAX Premium Class Carnauba care provides the paintwork with an optimum long term protection and a perfect appearance. After a thorough cleaning the car is dried. After that, I would recommend a deep down cleaning with the SONAX Premium Class Paint cleaner. With that the paintwork is cleaned gently and intensively, it is also degreased and made especially receptive for application of the wax. The next step is the polishing with carnauba wax. Here the wax is applied evenly and very thinly. Afterwards, the protective wax coating is ready to be polished to a high gloss with the microfibre cloth – which is contained in the set. This really facilitates the work procedure. The effect of such a manual care effort is incomparable. Whoever tries it once, will never be satisfied with anything else.
