    Re: Megs ULW & UFF - Tips for application

    First, I have about 10 bottles of UFF and I like the stuff. The price has dropped on Amazon to $8.64 and Walmart was getting rid of their stock at $6.00. Both of these are great prices for a bottle. I also highly recommend ULW as it can easily be bought, applied some some direct light and wipes right off plastic and rubber. So I like both of these products.

    However, UFF has always confused me. To me, it seems to be another fast synthetic sealant that does not need to be removed, like Opti-Seal. But my research has shown that you apply a synthetic sealant to the paint and then layer a good carnuba wax over it. This was because the sealant chemically bonds to the paint and a carnauba wax can be applied on top without the sealant rubbing off. But Megs states that UFF can be applied this way but also on top of a wax. I'm not sure how/why it would bond to a wax. I'm not convinced that it would not remove the wax when it is applied. I feel a little better about applying something like Meguiars D156 Synthetic X-press Spray Wax over wax.

    But winter is a different animal. It is not easy always easy to apply a wax. So I will use UFF when I get a wash in as it is easy and quick to apply. I'd rather use UFF on wheels as it only needs one step to apply and I think it lasts longer then a normal wax.

    Personally, using the product you mentioned, I'd apply ULW and then touch it up every month with UFF. I'd rather use a good synthetic sealant over the winter then a wax if that was all I'd be using.
    That's a great point about bonding to the paint and a point that has had me confused.

    I'm going to apply UFF to clean paint, allow to dry for 24 hours, and then apply UWW by hand (thinking the machine may somehow affect the UFF).

    Ultimate Liquid Wax is a sealant, not a Wax. I'd apply it and then top with Fast Finish. My two cents.

    I doubt there is much wax in ULW. Hybrid for sure if not a total sealant.

    I have had great luck with ULW lasting all winter in Southern Indiana. I wouldn't expect it to need topped with anything. However, I suppose it wouldn't hurt it.

    Just detailed my mom's '16 Durango. I put ULW down first let it cure for about 8 hours or so then topped with UFF. Wow, UFF as a topper really brings out the clarity.
