When it comes to Premium Paint Correction in Los Angeles: An important role in car detailing is Car Wax and Paint Sealants. They're the invisible barriers of protection that prevent any dirt from getting into the clear coat. Keeping a car cleaner, for much longer. Metaphorically speaking, car waxes and paint sealants should be viewed as waterproof jackets that we human beings wear to protect us from all elements. Like a waterproof jacket seals us in from the water. Also as an added benefit, high-quality waxes and paint sealants enhance more than you may think. It takes care of the shine, wetness, and slickness of a vehicle’s exterior surfaces.

The differences between Car Waxes, Paint Sealants, Coatings, Polishes, and Glazes (Advice by Pro Mobile - Paint Correction Los Angeles)

In the automotive detailing industry, the term “wax,” “sealant” and “polish” are mistakenly used interchangeably. Pro-Mobile Auto Detailing is here to clear any confusion the auto detailing industry has created.

Car Wax

Car waxes are liquids/pastes that feature a specific ratio of naturally-occurring carnauba wax as the main ingredient. They offer a glossier shine and are usually easier to apply than paint sealants due to their greater oil content. Car waxes usually provide protection for 1-3 months. Pro Mobile Auto Detail (Premium Paint Correction Los Angeles) offers a variety of car waxes as well as an exclusive car wax that lasts 6 months or more with proper care.

Paint Sealants

Paint sealants are liquids that contain manmade polymers, resins, and synthetics. Mimicking the properties of carnauba-based car waxes. All but with a greater longevity of protection. Many paint sealants offer easy application processes. One of the most famous paint sealant brands come from Zaino. Our Mobile Auto Detail team are proud to offer these high-quality brands. Unfortunately, Zaino labels some of their paint sealants as “polishes,” but don’t be fooled.

Many excellent paint sealants are out there that offer an extremely tight molecular barrier to a painted surface. However, they're not painting polishes. Our Auto detailing experts always suggest that most paint sealants do not offer the depth of shine that carnauba-based car waxes can provide.

Paint Coatings

Keeping our promise to provide that best and latest car detailing products and services to our clients. We're proud to announce the introduction of Paint Coatings to the auto detailing industry. Coatings are also made out of manmade materials, but they don't apply like car waxes or paint sealants. Instead, they are oftentimes of a much thinner viscosity (think: water). These 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 once were 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. Becoming longer lasting and glossier than ever before. Allowing more people to enjoy the benefits of what some would call a “second clear coat.” With car paint coatings, you will get maximum durability for the longest lasting paint protection available to buy for a 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 clear coat. 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 that is usually used in general.

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 painted surface. It works by removing finer swirls and holograms from the compounding step. Many well-kept vehicles don’t even need to be compounded, as the 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 also great for show car detailing and concourse preparation.
