The car’s paintwork is constantly exposed to adverse weather effects and mechanical stress. This ages the paintwork sooner or later – the surfaces become scratched, the paintwork appears dull and the colours fade. But through regular paintwork care with one of the polishes from the SONAX XTREME series ( Polish & wax 2 or Polish & wax 3), the scratches and shine haze are removed and the paintwork colours are rejuvenated. Simultaneously the paintwork receives a protective coating which will maintain the shine attained for weeks
1. Wash the car thoroughly
Before the polishing wash the car – with SONAX Gloss shampoo concentrate, SONAX Multi sponge and water, all of the superficial grime is thoroughly removed from the car, and it is gentle on the paintwork. It penetrates and dissolves the dirt without harming the paintwork’s protective wax coating.
Important: During the wash use plenty of water and, to avoid scratches, regularly and thoroughly remove the dirt from the sponge. Washing should not be carried out in direct sunlight or on hot paintwork. And after applying the shampoo rinse off with fresh water as quickly as possible, otherwise shampoo residue can dry out or water stains may occur.
Or simply drive through a modern automatic carwash: the car will be washed thoroughly, and it’s also eco-friendly.
2. Paintwork polishing
Paintwork in mint condition, slightly weathered and regularly maintained paintwork are a job for SONAX XTREME Polish+Wax 2. Extremely fine polishing elements, supplemented by the SONAX Hybrid Net Protection Technology ensure an attractive polishing result, a gentle smoothness, a brilliant high gloss and a durable sealing with long term effect.
Matt, weathered and neglected paintwork requires treatment from SONAX XTREME Polish+Wax 3. The extremely powerful aluminium oxide polishing components remove weathered paint layers and smoothen out scratches from the carwash installation, finger nails and other usual traces of wear. Here the integrated SONAX Hybrid Net Protection Technology also provides a deep shine, rejuvenated colours and a basic coating for the treated paintwork surfaces.
For best results apply the polish onto the paintwork with a SONAX P-Ball , distribute evenly and polish immediately, exerting medium pressure. When working always treat connected components (e.g. bonnet) in one operation. After a short drying out time remove the polish residues with the SONAX Microfibre cloth exterior.
3. Paintwork sealing
An optimum long term protection and a durable coating can only be attained with a subsequent paintwork sealing.
Friends of the traditional liquid hard wax should feel right at home with the SONAX XTREME BrilliantWax 1. Using the SONAX Application sponge , the abrasive free wax is sparingly and thinly applied onto the paintwork then distributed evenly, without applying pressure. In the process always treat complete part sections (e.g. bonnet, roof) in one operation. After allowing a brief surface drying remove the wax residues with the SONAX Microfibre cloth exterior.
The SONAX XTREME Protect+Shine. provides an alternative to wax, with up to 6 months paintwork protection. With the complete set, including Application sponge and Microfibre cloth , easily 3-4 vehicles can be sealed, rapidly and effortlessly – without pretreatment or drying times. The exceptionally stable and durable high gloss protective coating reduces the adhesion of dust and dirt, and the shine returns automatically after every wash.
