Why is FK 1000P...

...called 1000P?

Might seem a daft question but bear with me. On side of my tin it says BWM-101 - on the FK product page it says BWM 1000 - maybe the P stands for Paste? So I was curious how it got the name - any old hands remember how?

EDIT: This is 1000P - a mold release agent! I wonder if it's the same thing as BWM-101 / 1000 in a different tin...

Iirc correctly it is because its a paste.

The mold release agent is (or certainly used to be) a different product. Again from memory (and this is going back a long time since I asked and got the breakdown of differences), theres more wax content in the mold-release product and I'm pretty sure the BWM code was different (not the 1000P part but the actual FK internal number).

I'll see if I still have and can dig out the e-mail.

I (may be wrong) but I would think that the FK1000p name is to classify the paste wax sealant, while #2685 is the Carnauba Polymer paste wax and #425 is the QD.

The three do make a great combo and there are lots of excellent reviews on it e.g. First go with Finish Kare 1000P, 2685 & 425

Nice website serious performance, when I'm getting all three I''ll be sure to come knocking in the not too distant future.

The point (which I may have made insufficiently clear in my OP), is that neither the packaging for 1000p, nor the web page for it, actually call it by that name. And yet, the packaging for every other FK product does carry the number you'd expect... Interesting point being why this would be!
