Car Wax 101 – Understanding the Basics

September 20th, 2020 by

Here at Planet Alfa Romeo serving Miami drivers, we want to help you keep your vehicle looking nice. Car wax is an important part of detailing your vehicle. If you use wax on a regular basis, it will help keep your car clean, and it will help protect the paint. Car wax can come from numerous sources, which include carnauba plant leaves, palm waxes, and there are even synthetic waxes that come from silicone and other materials.

The primary purpose of wax is to place a protective barrier between the exterior coat and outside elements, such as UV rays, water, air, and debris. In addition, car wax gives a vehicle a shiny finish that enhances its appearance.

When you're applying wax, be sure to do so in even circles. Check the directions to see how long you should leave the wax on your vehicle as the times will change depending on the type of wax you use.
