Testing Waxes

I have all these waxes ready to test, it’s just a tad exciting.

Some will be going to test plates that have been painted and clear coated and some will be going on the bonnet of my BMW.

Please suggest anymore I could add into it!

Maybe try the same wax over a glaze to see how much it effects it bond/durability.

Perfect!!
You could do 50/50 one side with glaze the other without while using the same wax.

Looking forward to seeing how some of these Si02 infused waxes hold up compared to your natural/hybrid waxes.

Particularly interested to see how Enigma, The Fifth Element, Guardian, Revere, Icon, Diablo and In2detailings Ceramic Wax perform.

The first test I did was with Enigma, Reverse, Icon and In2d "ceramic" waxes on 4 test plates.

Application (best first): in2d, Revere, Icon, Enigma
Removal: Enigma (by a long way!), in2d, revere, icon - None were bad though!
Beading: Enigma, Revere, Icon, In2d - See photos, not a lot in in.

Hard to tell gloss on the plates but I had Enigma on my car until it failed recentlt and the gloss is superb on my black car, I put 2 coats of Revere on my bonnet today and its glossy but not as good as the Enigma.

I dont really have a clue how to test all these waxes so I would love some suggestions on different tests I can do and what people want to see!
