Car wax and paint sealants play a critical role in car detailing. They are the invisible barriers of protection that prevent contamination from getting into your clearcoat, and they help keep your car cleaner, longer. Metaphorically speaking, car waxes and paint sealants should be viewed as waterproof jackets that we human beings wear to protect us from the elements. They seal us in. As an added benefit, high quality waxes and paint sealants enhance the shine, wetness, and slickness of a vehicle’s exterior surfaces.

The Differences between Car Waxes, Paint Sealants, Coatings, Polishes, and Glazes

In the automotive detailing industry, the term “wax,” “sealant” and “polish” are mistakenly used interchangeably. The car detailers from CP Car Detailing are here to clear up any confusion that the car auto detailing industry has created.

Car Wax

Car waxes are liquids or pastes that feature a specific ratio of naturally-occurring carnauba wax as the main ingredient. They usually offer a wetter, glossier shine and are usually easier to apply than paint sealants due to their greater oil content. The tradeoff is less protection longevity. Car waxes usually provide protection for 1-3 months. CP Car Detailing offers a variety of different show car waxes as well as an exclusive car wax that can last 6 months or more with proper care.

Paint Sealants

Paint sealants are liquids that contain manmade polymers, resins, and synthetics to mimic the properties of carnauba- based car waxes, but with greater longevity of protection. Many paint sealants offer easy application processes. One of the most famous paint sealant brands come from Zaino, and CP Car detailing is proud to offer Zaino paint protection packages. Unfortunately Zaino labels some of their paint sealants as “polishes,” but don’t be fooled. They are excellent paint sealants that offer an extremely tight molecular barrier to a paint surface, but they are not paint polishes. Auto detailing experts will tell you that most paint sealants do not offer the depth of shine that carnauba-based car waxes can provide.

Paint Coatings

In keeping with our promise to provide that best and latest car detailing products and services to our clients, we are proud to announce the introduction of Paint Coatings to the automotive detailing industry. These coatings are also made out of manmade materials, but they do not look like, or apply like, car waxes or paint sealants. Instead, they are oftentimes of a much thinner viscosity (think: water), but they are designed to last 2-5x longer than any other type of paint protection product on the market today. Many popular paint coatings include 22PLE Glass Coating, Optimum OptiGuard & Wolf’s Hardbody. These used to be stand-alone products that only car dealerships were able to get, and that alone would cost hundreds if not thousands of dollars. But with the latest advancement in technologies, these coatings have become easier to apply, longer lasting, and glossier than every before, allowing more people to enjoy the benefits of what some would call a “second clearcoat.” With car paint coatings, you will get maximum durability for the longest lasting paint protection you can buy for your car or truck.

Car Polishes

True paint polishes are liquids that contain extremely fine abrasives that are designed to cut and refine a vehicle’s clearcoat when used by hand or in conjunction with a machine during the car paint polishing process. They do not offer any protective properties at all, only corrective. Paint polishing will yield the biggest improvement to a vehicle’s overall appearance, not the kind of wax you use. Aggressive polishes are called compounds because they have larger, sharper abrasives that quickly flatten a paint’s uneven, swirled surface. Compounds can be viewed as liquid sandpaper. Polishes are less aggressive liquids that help refine a paint surface to remove finer swirls and holograms from the compounding step. Many well-kept vehicles don’t even need to be compounded, as polish can have enough bite to remove the finer swirls in a paint’s finish.

Paint Glazes For Cars

A glaze is an oil-rich liquid designed to temporarily fill and hide fine scratches and swirls in a vehicle’s paint surface. Most inexpensive, low quality auto detailing shops will use a glaze after compounding to hide the uneven surface they created after heavily compounding a car. A glaze has the shortest longevity of protection, lasting a week or two at most. A simple rain shower will remove most glazes. At the same time though, glazes can offer extra shine and gloss to a properly prepped and polished automobile paint surface, which is great for show car detailing and concours preparation.
