Wax sealing - Which wax is the right one for my car?

Vehicle care plays a central role in maintaining the appearance and increasing the value of a vehicle. An effective method of protecting the paintwork and giving it a long-lasting shine is the application of sealants. Various options are available, including wax and ceramic sealants. Each of these sealants has specific properties that protect the paintwork from environmental influences and preserve the aesthetics of the vehicle in the long term.

What should car owners know about wax sealing?

The wax sealant is a protective film that is applied to the paint surface. This film protects the paintwork from environmental influences such as UV radiation, dirt and other substances that can damage the paintwork. The sealant also gives the paintwork a natural shine.

What types of wax sealant are available for cars?

There are different types of wax, including liquid wax, carnauba wax and spray wax. Each species has its own characteristics and advantages. Carnauba wax, for example, produces a deep shine.


What is the best wax for sealing my car paint?

When choosing the right car wax, it is important to consider the needs of the vehicle. High-quality products should be based on natural waxes and offer the paintwork long-lasting protection.

What are the advantages of a ceramic sealant compared to traditional waxes?

Ceramic sealants are characterized by numerous advantages. They offer an exceptionally high level of protection against scratches and other damage. Compared to conventional wax sealants, ceramic sealants are characterized by a significantly longer service life. This means that they need to be replaced less frequently, which saves both time and money. In addition, ceramic sealants make cleaning the vehicle considerably easier, as dirt and water adhere less to the smooth, sealed surface. These properties make ceramic sealants an excellent choice for vehicle owners who are looking for long-term and effective protection for their paintwork.


Buying car wax: tips on purchasing and application

Where can you buy high-quality car wax and what criteria are important?

High-quality car wax is available in specialized car care stores or online. When purchasing, attention should be paid to the quality of the product and its ingredients to ensure that it offers the desired protection.

What steps should I follow when applying car wax? (Instruction)

Applying car wax requires careful steps, including preparing the paint surface, applying the wax evenly and polishing for a beautiful shine.

  1. Thorough cleaning: Before the wax is applied, the vehicle must be thoroughly cleaned. This removes dirt, dust and other residues that could damage the paintwork or impair the final result. Our BIOSATIVA® cleaner is recommended for thorough and long-lasting cleaning.

  2. Drying: After cleaning, the vehicle must be completely dried to avoid water stains. A soft microfiber cloth or a special drying cloth can be used for this purpose.

  3. Preparation of the paint surface: Before applying the wax, the paint surface should be thoroughly inspected. If necessary, scratches or irregularities can be treated with a paint cleaning putty or a pre-cleaner can be used to remove stubborn stains.

  4. Even application of the wax: The wax should be applied in a thin, even layer. A soft applicator or a microfiber cloth can be used for this purpose. It is important to apply the wax in a circular motion to ensure even coverage.

  5. Note the application time: After application, the wax should be left to work for a few minutes so that it can bond with the paintwork. The exact application time may vary depending on the product, so follow the instructions on the packaging.

  6. Polishing for a beautiful shine: As soon as the wax has dried, it should be polished with a clean, dry microfiber cloth. It is important to work in a circular motion and distribute the pressure evenly to achieve a radiant shine. Please also observe the manufacturer’s instructions for the polish and read through the manufacturer’s instructions.

  7. Checking and reworking: After polishing, the entire paint surface should be carefully checked. Any remaining wax residue or uneven areas can be polished with a fresh microfiber cloth.

Advantages of wax sealants

  1. Natural deep shine: One of the main advantages of wax sealants is the natural, deep shine they give the vehicle. Carnauba wax is particularly suitable here.
  2. Inexpensive and accessible: Compared to other sealing methods such as ceramic sealants, wax sealants are often less expensive and more accessible. They can be found at most auto parts stores or online and can be applied by vehicle owners themselves without the need for specialized equipment or expertise.
  3. Environmental friendliness: Many wax products, especially those with a natural base, are more environmentally friendly than their synthetic counterparts. They contain fewer harmful chemicals, making them a preferred choice for environmentally conscious vehicle owners.
  4. Simple application: The application of wax is relatively simple and can also be carried out by non-professionals. It does not require any special tools or extensive preparation. This makes wax sealants ideal for those who like to maintain their vehicles themselves and do not want to rely on professional services.
  5. Protection against light damage: While wax sealants do not offer the same level of hardness and protection as ceramic sealants, they can still provide good protection against light scratches, bird droppings and tree sap. This protection helps to protect the paintwork from minor damage.
  6. Improving the paint color: Wax sealants can improve the perception of the paint color by increasing the color depth and gloss. This is particularly advantageous for dark and vibrant paint colors, where the difference can be clearly visible after waxing.

Disadvantages of wax sealants

  1. Shorter shelf life: One of the biggest disadvantages of wax sealants is their comparatively short shelf life. While ceramic sealants can often last for several years, wax sealants need to be renewed more frequently, usually every few months, depending on the weather conditions and how often the vehicle is washed.
  2. Less protection: Although wax sealants offer a certain degree of protection against environmental influences, they are less effective than more modern sealing methods such as ceramic sealing. They are less resistant to scratches, chemicals and UV radiation, which makes the paintwork more susceptible to damage in the long term.
  3. Time-consuming application: Applying wax sealants can be time consuming, especially if done manually. It requires thorough preparation of the paint and precise application techniques to achieve an even finish. This can be a challenge for vehicle owners who have little time or do not have the necessary equipment.
  4. Weather susceptibility: Wax sealants are more sensitive to extreme weather conditions. Strong sunlight, high temperatures, salt and dirt can break down the effect of the wax more quickly, reducing the protection and shine of the vehicle paintwork.
  5. Limited dirt repellency: While wax sealants give the paintwork a beautiful shine, they only offer limited dirt-repellent properties. This means that vehicles with wax sealants may need to be cleaned more frequently, as dust and dirt adhere more easily to the surface.

How do you maintain the interior of the vehicle with car wax products?

Car interiors can also benefit from car wax products, especially special cleaning and care products that protect and maintain the interior of the vehicle.

What are the special features of different wax sealants and how are they applied?

Different wax sealants have different application techniques and offer different protective properties, which can be selected according to requirements.

  1. Carnauba wax: This is one of the most popular types of wax and is obtained from the leaves of the carnauba palm. Carnauba wax is known for its high deep shine. It forms a hard protective layer that effectively protects against UV rays, but needs to be reapplied regularly as it does not last as long as some synthetic waxes.

  2. Synthetic waxes: These waxes, often referred to as “sealants”, are chemically produced and offer a longer shelf life than natural waxes. They are easier to apply and more resistant to environmental influences such as acid rain and road dirt. Synthetic waxes offer good protection and shine, but are often perceived as less “warm” compared to carnauba wax.

  3. Liquid wax: Liquid waxes are easy to use and ideal for beginners. They can be applied more quickly than solid waxes and are generally easier to polish off. Liquid waxes are often a mixture (also known as a hybrid wax) of natural and synthetic ingredients and offer a good compromise between shine, protection and durability.

  4. Solid waxes: Solid waxes generally offer better and longer-lasting protection than liquid waxes. However, they require more time and effort to apply, as they have to be massaged into the paint and carefully polished off. Solid waxes are often the preferred choice for enthusiasts and for those looking for a deeper and richer shine.

  5. Spray waxes: Spray waxes are the easiest and quickest to apply and are ideal for quick touch-ups between regular wax applications. However, they generally do not offer the same level of protection or shine as solid or liquid waxes.
