Wheel protection with durable effect
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.
The product is thinly applied and neatly distributed with the enclosed polishing cloth – after just one hour drying time a protective coating as hard as glass is formed. Through the binding of organic and inorganic active substances with the wheel rim surface, the product effectively reduces the adhesion of typical dirt types – it effectively repels water, dirt and road salt. And this technology is equally suitable for lacquered aluminium and steel rims as well as chromed or polished wheels. The care effect is additionally impressive due to its visible deep shine.
The protective effect is discernible through a durable lotus effect, which can be observed after driving in the rain or a car wash. As a rule: the sealant will last for up to five vehicle washes in a carwash installation with brush washing. Anyone manually washing lightly soiled wheels, will ascertain an even longer durability. When heavier soiling requires the deployment of a wheel cleaner, another positive effect becomes apparent: Due to the reduced adhesion of dirt, the cleaner can be used very sparingly. The recommended cleaner is SONAX XTREME Wheel cleaner full effect, whose acid free, mild composition is not aggressive."
