Which polish is suitable for which paint condition?

Pure hard wax is most suitable for the care of new and thoroughly cleaned paint surfaces. Pure hard wax protects paint lastingly against atmospheric and other influences, and produces deep shine. Properly protected paint surfaces are recognised by the way the water rolls off in fine round drops. If there are large water areas on the paint, the next protective treatment with wax is necessary. SONAX recommends XTREME Wax 1 full protect for preservation. This hard wax has a high content of natural Carnauba wax, is highly effective and can be polished out very easily. 3-4 applications per year yield a maximum of protection and perfect gloss. Mild polishes provide ideal care for slightly dull paint surfaces. SONAX XTREME Polish + Wax 2 Nano Pro cleans the surface and polishes the paintwork. Its wax content produces brilliant shine and long-term protection. For matt and weathered paint surfaces you need a polish with a higher content of abrasives: SONAX XTREME Polish + Wax 3 Nano Pro yields best results. Highly effective abrasives remove the destroyed paint layer without the slightest effort. The grey film disappears, the colour is refreshed optimally – the result is brilliant surface, which is protected lastingly.

Basically, a polish only treats the car’s clear coat. This is approx. 30 µm thick. A very intensive manual application – e.g. with SONAX Xtreme Polish & Wax 3 – can “sand down” a maximum of 0.3 µm of the clear coat.
Recommendation: SONAX recommends Xtreme Wheel cleaner full effect. It is a powerful, acid-free special cleaner for all steel and light-alloy rims and wheel caps.
We recommend SONAX XTREME Upholstery & Alcantara cleaner in the 400-ml aerosol can for treating stains in textile, velour and Alcantara covers. The powerful foam penetrates the fibres deeply, resolves dirt, and, at the same time, eliminates smell by binding smelly substances.

The SONAX Dirt eraser helps with polish residues on plastics: slightly moisten it and simply rub off residues. Tip: treat rubber and plastic parts with SONAX Xtreme plastic restorer gel Nano Pro before polishing the paintwork.

For the cleaning and care of leather parts (incl. leather steering wheels) we recommend using Xtreme Leather care foam Nano Pro. It is a high-quality foam care for the gentle cleaning and care of leather parts in the car interior, motor cycle clothing and other smooth leathers.
All SONAX windscreen washer fluids can be mixed. But: washer fluids for the winter do not optimally work in the summer and vice versa. The products are adjusted to the respective temperature ranges.
Also in the car’s interior plastic surfaces – e.g. in the cockpit – should be protected against fading. For this we recommend SONAX Xtreme Cockpit cleaner matt finish Simply spray on product and wipe surfaces.
