Do something good for the paintwork now – The XTREME-Series with „Hybrid Net Protection Technology“

After the brief but severe winter, during which the car has to put up with a lot of aggressive road salt, moisture and other road grime, the motorist is well advised to treat the car to a good long wash, and to follow that up with a thorough polishing of the paintwork. Jan D. from Freiburg poses a question asked by many motorists in springtime: “Which polish is most suitable for the condition of my car’s paintwork, after the winter?”
Reply: Fundamentally, after the winter a polish may have a somewhat higher abrasive content. We recommend the newest generation of paintwork care products, in particular our own SONAX XTREME Polish + wax 3. This is a highly effective polish which can be applied manually, or with polishing machine, to remove weathered paint layers and freshen up dull looking colours. What makes it exceptional are the high-end polishing granules, made from the finest alumina powder, which smoothen out and make invisible the fine scratches made by the carwash, finger nails and other signs of usage.
We have designated this newly developed and innovative formula „Hybrid Net Protection Technology“ – it enables one to give paintwork an even more brilliant deep shine, than was previously possible, and to combine this with a remarkable water run-off effect. For chemistry fans: To this end, special organic substances were combined with inorganic components, to form a stable, weathering resistant network, which optimally brings out the paintwork’s colours, and simultaneously conserves it.
Should one wish to do even more for their paintwork, such as attaining even more durable protection and a longer lasting shine, should follow up with an additional application of a high quality hard wax. One more tip: Getting perfect results requires perfect accessories. We wholeheartedly recommend a polishing sponge for the intensive paintwork treatment, and a microfibre cloth to remove the polish residue, without leaving streaks.

A clearer view in spring and summer

While making longer car journeys in the summer months, many motorists get annoyed at smeared windscreens caused by insect residues. The Problem: Very often an additive is already in use, many cleaners, however, lack the special insect dissolving power.

Clean the paintwork just like professionals

Hansüli E. from Zurich asks: “Recently I saw in a professional car valeting company, that some sort of plasticine was being used for cleaning the paintwork. Could you tell me what was the product used?

Brilliant! - Limitless shine

At this time of the year, every car that had to put up with road salt, wet conditions and street dirt during winter can do with a thorough paintwork polish after car wash. Like many others, Olaf G. from Dortmund has the following question: “Which polish is the best for my car’s paint condition in spring?”
These last weeks, there, no doubt, have been several car drivers thinking about the following question that Hubert M. from Berlin sent in: “The windscreen of my car is quite new, but already has some scratches, which are annoying particularly with oncoming lights. Are the scratches a result of ice scraping?”

Maintaining and protecting plastic components

Unpainted plastic components should not be neglected when maintaining the car, otherwise they will prematurely fade and may even become brittle.

Acid-free rim cleaning - thoroughly and material-friendly

Acid containing wheel cleaners can induce corrosion on wheel bolts and metal parts like the brake calipers.
In many maintenance guides for alloy wheels a sealant is recommended for maintaining the value and to simplify the cleaning. The care tip from expert Richard Hanauer is the SONAX XTREME Wheel rim coating: "The easy to use spray from the SONAX XTREME series, in the latest generation based on a further developed hybrid formula, which offers distinct advantages over conventional processes.
It seems confusing to many motorists, when a winter windscreen cleaner claims to provide freeze protection at minus 60 degrees. In our latitudes it is a rare occurrence to see the thermometer standing at -20 degrees Celsius. Such freeze protection figures are therefore, misleading. Incidentally, these cleaners would be so viscous, even at -40 degrees Celsius, that they could hardly be conveyed through the windscreen washer system.

What to do against „paint killers“

Insect dirt looks horrible and damages the car’s paintwork. These are organic „paint killers“ which can cause serious damage to the paintwork, particularly when exposed to solar radiation. And the longer they cling to the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat into the paintwork surfaces.
