The Auto Finesse Illusion wax is made up of 48% T1 Grade Brazilian Carnauba Wax by volume, with the remainder being made up by synthetic polymers, and gloss-intensifying oils. Illusion can provide 2-3 months of staying power and has a strawberry-liquorice scent.
All Auto Finesse waxes are carefully blended by hand in Great Britain and treat your vehicle with nature’s own defense against the elements, giving it water repellency, and resistance to environmental pollution (Including UV-fading, acid rain, and bird droppings.).
Whether your car or motorcycle has a modern clearcoat, or a classic single-stage paint system, Auto Finesse waxes will give it the protection it needs to survive the realities of everyday life.
Before wax, make sure the vehicle is clean. Use a clay bar to ensure there is no bonded contamination to its surface. If paintwork hasn’t been polished in the last 6-12 months it’s wise to prep the surface with a pre-wax cleanser.
Use a foam applicator at half a turn in the wax pot – this coats it ready for waxing. Apply using small, even and overlapping strokes. Wax goes a long way so use sparingly. One you’ve completed one panel, move to the next panel, then when that is complete buff off the previous.
If wax has dried, or ‘secondary hazing’ of the wax occurs (A phenomenon which can sometimes happen in hot or humid climates, especially if the product was over-applied.), you can use a water-based quick detailer to help ease removal of the residue.
It’s important to wait at least 3 hours in between coats or layers of wax and don’t wax it if the ambient temperature is below 6 degrees Celsius or above 35. It’s also important not to wax in direct sunlight, due to possible curing issues.
