    Maintaining Poly wax

    Used this for the first time. Liking it so far! As far as maintaining it, are items like speed shine and griots spray wax the suggested maintenance products?

    Additionally, if I used speed shine as a drying aid during my first wash, would it still be safe to apply a second coat of poly wax after?

    Thanks!

    Re: Maintaining Poly wax

    Griots spray wax. Used to maintain and a great drying aid. There seems to be some confusion between speed shine/spray on wax. Spray on wax is to be used after each wash. Speed shine between washes.

    From GRIOTS...Griot`s Garage Speed Shine Detailer should still be used between washes, but Spray-On Wax should be used immediately after each wash. Griot`s Garage Spray-On Wax is meant primarily for clean cars. Used as a drying aid, it helps prevent water spots.

    Guess he`s wondering whether the stuff SpeedShine leaves behind might cause issues with more Poly going on top of it.

    I used SpeedShine as a Drying Aid many times with no issues before all the Spray Waxes/etc. came out. It`s a leaves-stuff-behind QD that leaves *pretty much stuff* behind IME, not a Spray Wax but it`s sure no M34 either.

    Thanks! Anxious to see if griots chimes in. By the way, poly wax is a really nice product. Super slick and a nice look to it. Let`s hope the durability claims are true

    there is always chance for hope

    I`m learning, however, that durability claims are like stock prices. They change with a lot of different factors and generally not for the best.


    How long do they say it lasts anyways?

    8 Months is great durability--I`m curious to hear how it does with regard to self cleaning and protection from bird bombs.

    Re: Maintaining Poly wax

    I wouldn`t go so far to say that it will last 8 months... maybe in a very mild climate and always garaged.

    I have tested and 4 winter months seems to be it. It applies awesome, smells awesome, looks awesome, gloss stays around for an extended time but I am not sure if it is designed to be a sheeting sealant or a beading sealant. Just some funky water behavior... not a bad thing but just confused me when observing it`s performance.
    It does like two layers, 24 hours apart if possible. Self cleaning... eh, seems to be comparable to any average sealant. Bird bombs haven`t seemed to be an issue for this product... spring is finally here in my local and the birds are bombing, lol, and I don`t have time to wipe them off my own vehicles.

    I would say it competes well with 845 and Meg`s ULW (and I mention those because most people have a working knowledge with those products.)

    Re: Maintaining Poly wax

    Good feedback. Hoping to get another layer on fairly soon. I sure does look good, especially after curing overnight.

    Guess I`m spoiled after using FK1000--don`t worry about bird bombs and after a heavy rain car looks like it was just washed.
