Hi Sime, great to see that you stock Chemical Guy products.
Just wanted to ask what Wax do you recommend for overall shine & protection?
My friends seem to rave on about Meguiars Tech Wax 2.0...but i dont want to get caught up in the hype over a product where im sure there are better alternatives.

cheers

Hey there,

I can't comment on the Tech Wax 2.0 as I have never used it, but I have tried the Tech Wax original. While it gave a good finish, it's durability was terrible. Only lasted for approx. 3 weeks, and that was with washing it with Gold Glass wash.

Chem Guys make two great carnauba waxes....the Pete's 53 ($48.95)
Image
and the '50/50' ($58.95)
Image.

Both are paste waxes and have great durability.....typically 2-3 months between applications. Both apply and remove easily. Importantly, they don't leave any powdery residue. I personally like the 50/50, but there are great reviews on both! Feel free to do a Google search.

Combine either wax with the Chem Guys 8.75mm plush microfibre towels and you're onto a winner. If you add the Jetseal109 polymer paint sealant before the wax, the car will come up looking a million bucks, plus it will be well-protected. I swear by the Jetseal. We use it on every Werks Gold detail that comes through the shop. And one bottle at $45.95 will typically last you 3 years.

Cheers,
Sime

Ahh thanks Sime for clearing that up for me on the Tech Wax stuff.
Yeah ive heard good things about the Jetseal from detailparadise.com.au
With the wax, do any come in liquid form? or is the paste stuff just as easy to apply to the applicator pad & onto the car?

cheers,
Hayden

Hey Hayden,

The two products I listed above only come in a paste form. They apply super easily with a damp sponge/applicator. Plus you don't spill any liquid on the car as well which is a bonus.

If you really want a liquid wax, Chem Guys make a 'Butter Wet Wax' but it's not as high a quality as Pete's or the 50/50.

Cheers,
Sime

Sorry to bring up an old thread, but i'm looking at which wax/sealant to try next and was thinking about jetseal109 when i came upon this thread.

I will probably use just one product and considering that jetseal109 has been around for number of years, and with new technological and chemical advancements, new waxes and sealants keep coming up all the time, with raging reviews, i'm thinking jetseal might be old tech, and new products (like the above mentioned pete's 53 and 50/50) might be more advanced and offer better protection/easier application/more gloss/longer durability etc.
Jetseal109 has great reviews and you say you swear by it, so i'll still be happy to use it or any of the other two mentioned here, i'd just like your opinion on my thinking :)

I'm also looking at the "wet mirror finish"
(http://www.chemguys.com.au/Auto_Paint_R ... 104_16.htm)
and am not sure whether it is a sealant in itself or it should be used before or after a wax/sealant. Some reviewers use it as a last step and others before waxing... Would you recommend using it and when?

Jetseal 109 isn't a product that replaces wax, it compliments it.

A good finish relies on 3 pillars; polish, protection, wax.

Wet mirror finish is an intermediate product, used in-between polish and protection.

Hope this clarifies!

Cheers,
Sime

PS. Jetseal is way morenew school than wax, 50/50 and Pete's 53 included.

Yes it does, thanks a lot Sime :)

So it seems Jetseal and either wax will be the winning choice.

Might come past the shop one day if i can finish work earlier, hope you have these in stock ;)
