    Yes big difference, but I don't use big chunks.. I don't even use thin slivers.. what I end up with is very tiny particles size of food pepper/salt.

    And to put things in perspective, acid will dissolve sealant/wax in a cup easily... to accomplish same feet on. A panel, it needs at least 3 wipe downs....so takes more effort to strip on a panel then it does sitting in a cup


    As for Fbomb, it's a slightly stronger APC.. also foams up

    I agree.

    Re: Poorboys strip down wax stripper

    I just think it's not conclusive to many variables. You can strip a wax with these products if it's been on for a little.

    If you are ending up with salt and pepper dots I would say that means it's breaking it apart?

    No those are what's im carving it up to by using the serrations from a knife. Those thin lil dots arnt being dissolved by anything but acid
    Ph nuetral, high solvents, nor high alkaline arnt breaking them down..
    Wax will break down in a cup of acid easily..but takes more than a couple panel wipes with acid to strip an LSP

    Re: Poorboys strip down wax stripper

    I'll post this here as well, I had very good results in the first test. I applied Zymol Titanium 3 days ago on the paint (not polish prepped beforehand). Washed today with 1 oz per 1 gallon dilution of Adam's Strip Wash with little impact, strong beading and quick sheeting remained. Sprayed Poorboy's Strip Down when wet on half the hood, went over the area again with the same mitt and the beading was dead during the rinse. No etching marks where it made contact on the paint.

    On my front bumper I've had McKee's 37 SiO2 Paint Coating for 7+ months, extremely strong performance remaining and I tried Strip Down on a section. The coating was significantly damaged in various areas, not full removal but permanently impacted. Very cool, more testing to come!



    After Strip Down:


    Rinse:


    On top of McKee's SiO2 Paint Coating:


    Damage:



    Just tried it today on top of 2 weeks old Gyeon Prime and Gyeon One on the other test hood after first trying LA's Totally Awesome APC. LA's didn't do anything to Prime, had a few small patches of damage show up on One. After Strip Down both sections had larger patch areas of damage, One more than Prime. So it's significantly more effective than a strip wash soap at high dilution and at least more effective than LA's TA.

    My point is that a given chemical doesn't have to completely dissolve wax it only has break the bond enough to be wiped away.

    Its been said 100x beading and sheeting is not an accurate indicator of being waxed. Glass will bead water too

    Re: Poorboys strip down wax stripper

    Sheeting is the best visual we have
    I agree with the beading though ..that all about contact degree

    But obviously your statement also proves loaches results might not be accurate either...

    My point with that post was give it more time as the surfactant hasn't been evaporated yet..which is why it didnt even sheet...it sheet later in the day

    Similar result here. I used Meguiars Wash Plus+ on a car that had not been waxed since Fall, but had a coat of Hydro 2 put on 2 wks ago. It went from beading to sheeting after Wash Plus, then back to beading after Iron X and clay.
