Re: Best wax to use in HOT Florida sun?
Carnaubas still last a little while but to answer your question a paint sealants melting point is quite a bit higher. Usually around 350 degrees if I understand correctly.
I read that the hybrids melting points are around 200 degrees. I also read that carnauba wax melting points are around 180 and depending on the added solvents or other types of waxes like beeswax it could be as low as 130. From what I understand it is at these temperatures that the product in question becomes temporarily soft enough to be easily washed off.
So any way I think most waxes are going to last a little while as long as you don't let them sit in the sun and then start washing them while the paint is super hot.
