New hybrid wax

My trusty pot of Dodo SNH is almost done so I'm looking for a similar product to replace it. The thing is, being in Australia we don't have easy access to lots of products you guys have back in the UK. For instance, the one Dodo retailer only has the old SNH and not the newish Nano version. However, I have family heading over in a few week's time so could get stuff ordered and they can bring it over. So, avoiding crazy expensive stuff, what are your recommendations? One car is silver, the other dark silver and black. I've considered Soft99 Fusso and SNH Nano but don't really know about much else. Any stand-out products over there that I should be considering?

New hybrid wax

Budget?

How about a ceramic based wax like Fireball Fusion or Angel Wax Enigma?

In2detailing do a budget ceramic infused wax for £20.

Surely In2d can’t do I am ceramic infused wax that can be taken seriously. I don’t mean that disrespectfully.
Matt from Angelwax told me the price they pay for the ceramic ingredient that goes into enigma and “budget” options of genuine ceramic infused wax where the ceramics serves a purpose are just not viable.

Yes, as Ben Gum says, "ceramic" or "SiO2" "infused" waxes are essentially a fad, and the silica components don't appear to bring much in terms of actual functionality.

Is it supposed to be for durability?
If you find something better than Fusso, send me a sample please hahah

Not too bothered about budget - can go big so long as it's worth it. I do have a very sensitive BS radar though so unless it's got science to back up claims, I'm out. I'm also not interested in paying money for fancy packaging.

Good durability will be nice - hence the hybrid requirement. I get around 6 months from SNH - just topped up the Land Cruiser that i last did before our winter. Also needs to be fairly easy to apply and remove as that thing is big!

I don't particularly agree they are a fad, I think there is something in it (pardon the pun).
The way it was explained to me:
Waxes have tiny molecules that are all different shapes take a triangle and a circle for example, which cannot fit together perfectly because of thier shape. The ceramic component that is only in Fusion and Enigma is much small than these other "shapes" and fills in the gaps created a far more impermeable layer.

As far as I am aware Angelwax and Fireball are the only brands using this particular ceramic component and its the only ceramic that serves a viable purpose in a wax. I have been told to expect 8months + in Uk conditions and 12months if reguarly washed with ceramic infused shampoo. Worth the £50 for a sample pot for me!

How about our Race Glaze Hybrid Blue ?

High Carnauba content of 40% for gloss, plus nano polymers for durability. I used it on my GFs silver Fiesta, shone like a star and was still there 8 months after when we sold it.

100ml £33 or 230ml £55

Post to Oz about £10 or within UK £3

Looks interesting... How long does it take to cure in average conditions? Also how long does it need between applying extra layers?
