What does durability mean?

Durability claims are always questionable. Anyone who quotes a timeline is relying on foggy conjecture because there are too many variables in the equation to properly answer such a question. It's a "your mileage will vary" proposition because where you park your car (inside a garage or out in the driveway), the climate where you live (bright and sunny versus dark and rainy), how you wash your car (true car wash, dish soap, or the ever-harsh drive-thru tunnel wash), if you're maintaining an existing basecoat, and whether or not your paint was properly prepped before protection was added are all key factors to wax and sealant longevity.

Durability should be looked at as a study of relativity not time... how the formula of one wax stacks up against another... something we call our hierarchy of durability. This is more involved than saying it's a natural carnauba-based wax or a synthetic polymer-based sealant. The ratio of each product's chemistry package produces noticeable differences in durability while also impacting other performance aspects of the product.

PICK A WINNING COMBINATION

Start by determining the degree of paint correction you need as indicated in the gradated Surface Condition bar at the top of the chart. From there select a product from the Liquids column, match it to your machine, then drop down to the pad section and see which pads will work best.
