How to apply your new car wax

How to apply your new car wax

Initially, ensure the car is just washed and completely dry. The car must be out of direct sunlight, as sunlight can cause damage to your paint.

Once the vehicle is in the optimal location. Prepare the car with our pre wax cleanser, Pure. Use a soft, foam applicator and apply in straight lines.

After you have cleansed the paintwork you can commence with the wax application.

Place your foam applicator into the jar and turn clockwise once and anti-clockwise once. This will ensure an even coating of wax on your applicator pad.

Prior to applying the wax, I would like to offer two pieces of guidance. Have in your mind that you are only coating the paint, not working the wax into the paint and secondly, any wax which is applied in a thick manner will not cure effectively. Simply think that you are very gently placing a very, very thin layer of wax on the car. This allows for faster curing times and the opportunity to layer the wax within a shorter period of time.

Lightly hold the foam applicator pad on the paint and apply in straight lines, we emphaise light pressure, as you are not wanting to apply any level of abrassion to the paint. You are simply coating the paint, our car wax does not require to be "worked" into the paint. 

Our waxes are free of abrassive materials, they are for protection and aesthetics only. This offers you a very safe and highly compatible car wax for paint finishes (aside for matte paint).

Lotus can benefit for curing for 20/30 minutes. This time will change depending on the air temperature, humidity and panel temperature. We advise that after 15 minutes you pass a microfibre, lightly, over the car to remove the cured wax and present a new layer of curing wax.

Again, after another 15 minutes, you either repeat this process as often as you wish to increase reflectivity and gloss or you can remove the wax.

We reccommend a short nap microfibre, rather than a plush microfibre.
