Home Brewing Colour Charged waxes

The Man Auto Direct, we just call him MAD1, well he has been at it again in the kitchen at the AB HQ (no not that you dirty beggers), and we think he has come up trumps with some of his latest creations.

As a reward we may let him out on day release some time soon, so what is it i hear you say? -

well a new range of colour charged waxes. We have these on test at the moment so please no orders just yet!!, but from the off we can say we are quite pleased, not only do they enhance the paint work with the colour charge, but they also hide imperfections within the clear coat / paint.







We have added to the range the following:-

Watermelon for Red / Rusty / Pink Paint work , on test with a BMW



Aniseed for Silver / Gun Metal Paint Work << i have this on my alloys at the min and works well as a alloy wax, wasnt designed for it due to heat, but thats why we test them so you dont have to, but its holding up well.... + have this on test on a star silver fiesta.



Matte - for all matte finishes (wraps etc) we have some stability issues at the minute but hours from sorting that out, we found it to work well but it needs to be kept in the fridge when not in-use, but dont we all anyway? we didnt have a fully wrapped car so we shelled out on some wrap so we could test it.



Apple - Green Style paint works, << only one not on test at the minute.


Blueberry, for all types of blue cars. we have them test on Subaru and BMW paint work.


Musk, for whites, again have the on test on an EVO, + on the bonnet of the Suraru for durability against the blueberry.


Last but not least, pineapple. for all you sporty people out there with Orange / Yellow cars, have this on test with a yellow fiesta ST.



o and my house cupboard sticks to high heaven, but its a great smell, fresh fruit every time we open the door.

and these two are floating around the idea stage ATM...

Looking good very soft looking waxes.

Re colour charge for specific colours how many layers are you applying to get results ? and if it's colour wax per car I know one of the issues is that wax may be durable but any 'colour charge' dissipates much more quickly.

Not sure on the chocolate one lol > good idea tho'

Be interesting to see the results on these

cheers MR B, thought you might be along, hope yours is coming on well to, have sub to your thread to keep an eye on you..!!!

yes soft waxes this time round.

i have per panel added one layer, second panel 2 layers and 3rd panel 3 layers, with a few hours between layers. yes its what do you want more kind of wax, durability or colour charge as per the DDJ thread.

for the cleaner on all panels IPA before waxes and tried to control as much as we could, new applicators, new MF cloths etc etc, all are going to be washed with a PH neutral shampoo too. only factor we carnt control is the weather and road condition's for the cars.
