Waxing protects the paint finish from the elements by coating it with waxes, polymers, resins and silicones. In addition to protecting, wax can also ¡°lock-in¡± the gloss to create brilliance, deepen/ enrich dark colors and offer other benefits, such as water beading and light swirl removal depending on the formulation. All of Meguiar¡¯s waxes are clear coat safe, with choices available in paste, liquid or spray depending on your needs and preferences. Note that every car and car owner is different, as are the environments in which they live and how they are cared for. All of these variables affect how long a wax lasts. Generally speaking, we recommend waxing your car 3-4 times per year, but more frequent waxing is OK!
