Waxing is an important step in car beauty. Many car owners have a very one-sided understanding of this, either frequently waxing or simply not waxing. Some car owners think that the more expensive wax, the better effect it is, so it specializes in the use of imported car wax. In fact, these practices are not appropriate. In the following, we will introduce to you about the choice of car wax and the precautions for waxing. We hope to help everyone.
1.Various types and selection of car wax.
At present, there are a wide variety of car waxes on the market, ranging from solids and liquids, to high-end and median, and domestic and import options. Due to the different performance of various waxes, their effects are not the same. Therefore, care must be taken when selecting them. Improper selection not only does not protect the body, but also discolors the paint. Under normal circumstances, it should be based on the characteristics of car wax, the newness of the vehicle, paint color and driving environment and other factors. For limousines, high-grade car wax can be used; the new car is best coated with color wax to protect the body’s luster and color; the summer should use anti-ultraviolet vehicle wax; when the driving environment is poor, it is more appropriate to use protective resin wax ; And for ordinary vehicles, use regular pearl or metallic paint series car wax. Of course, the choice of car wax must also be considered when adapting to the color of the car paint. Generally, dark car paint uses car wax of black, red and green series, and light car paint uses silver, white and pearl car wax.
2.Attention to car waxing
Don’t wax your new car. It is not enough to wax a vehicle after someone buys a new one. Because the new car itself has a layer of protective wax on the paint layer, premature waxing will remove the original wax on the surface of the new car, causing unnecessary waste. Generally, the new car will not need to rush to wax within five months of buying it back.
To master the waxing frequency. The time interval for waxing should also be different due to the environment in which the vehicle is driving and the parking place. Generally, there are garages for parking, and vehicles that are mostly on good roads are used for waxing once every 3-4 months. For vehicles parked in the open air, it is best to apply wax every 2-3 months due to wind and rain. Of course, this is not a rigid rule. When the body is generally not touched by hand, it can be waxed again.
It is best to wash the dirt and dust on the exterior of the body with car wash water before waxing. Remember not to use detergent and soapy water blindly, as the sodium chloride ingredients contained in it will attack the paintwork, wax film and rubber parts of the car, which will make the car paint lose luster and the rubber parts will age. If there is no special car wash water, the vehicle can be washed with clean water and the car body can be wiped dry and then waxed.
The car should be waxed in a cool place to ensure that the body does not become hot. Because with the increase of temperature, the adhesion of car wax becomes worse, which will affect the waxing quality.
When waxing, apply a proper amount of car wax to the sponge block and apply it on the car body in a straight line. Do not pour the wax liquid on the car or smear it in a circle. A job should be completed continuously, and painting should not be stopped. After the wax layer is evenly applied, clean it with a new towel for 5-10 minutes, but fast wax should be applied while polishing.
After the car body is waxed, some car wax remains in the gaps between the lights, license plates, doors, and luggage compartments, making the car body look unattractive. Wax scales in these areas may rust if not cleaned in time. Therefore, the wax must be completely removed after the wax is finished, so as to obtain a perfect waxing effect.
In short, like people need beauty care, cars also need to be waxed in order to maintain a more beautiful, cleaner car body.
