    Jeweling wax?

    Jeweling wax is a term I never heard of until I came here and to be honest I am not really sure what it means.
    I've gathered it's a final step used to give depth and gloss but I have always just added another coat afterward to help that.
    Is it something mainly used on show cars,hot rods exotics and such?
    I work mainly production reconditioning at a GM dealer and I rarely see an SS Camaro or a Corvette but wouldn't mind something special for them when I do see them.
    I generally use Meguiers gold class or Car Brite Weather Shield.

    I am also guessing it's probably not something I want to use on run of the mill Chevy Cruzes ,Malibu's or cars of that sort and 100,000 mile trucks (which I see alot of)
    we do sell Buicks so maybe I would use it on them to?
    I apoligize if I missed a post that already covered this.

    Re: Jeweling wax?

    Since I coined the term and wrote the definition, I'll add this...


    Jeweling Wax - Definition


    This is the paragraph in the above article I linked to that I think explains why a true jeweling wax is different than the thousands of AIOs or cleaner/waxes on the market.

    I know of a lot of cleaner/waxes on the market, Nu-Finish for example is a cleaner/wax. But Nu-Finish will not create a show car finish like a true jeweling wax.

    See the difference? It has to do primarily with the abrasive technology used.... or in the case of some products.... not used....

    Re: Jeweling wax?

    thaks Mike,I read through the link and plus a couple more,,one on production detailing.
    I can get through a car fairly quick when I need to but I do not like to sacrifice quality so I may be not as production as I thought.
    my biggest problem is focus as I am constantly pulled off to do other things like drive customers,fix a light or something else etc etc
    I was looking at Jeweling wax as a way to make the cars still look good without having 4 to 8 hours of buff time on them thus shortening my turnaround time. but I think maybe a cleaner wax would accomplish that better for me after reading your article.
    I am always looking for ways to improve quality so I will probably order some Jeweling wax in the near future to gain some experience with it.

    I missed Mike's post the first time around also. I read it and like the concept, but it was Carnauba, now I want a jeweling sealant.
