Ceramic Wax vs “Normal” Wax

Morning all,

Been looking at adding to my wax collection, my go to wax is BH DSW because I haven’t found anything that comes close in terms of beading and durability, especially when applied after a BH Cleanser Fluid wipe down.

So looking at say In2Detailing Ceramic wax and ODK Revere (at the higher end of cost), what could a ceramic wax give me over DSW? Is it similar to a ceramic coating and give me more protection against etching for bird poo or swirls etc?

Apology’s for my lack of knowledge and appreciate your help.

Cheers

I have that In2D Ceramic wax, for the most part getting bird etching off the paint asap is vital, wax itself will offer protection so that hybrid of ceramic an enhancement. I carry water apc plus kitchen roll so always ready to deal with these as they come along.

Would be interesting to know if left unattended on any lsp if that etching would damage the paint, for the most part theses can be compounded out, by hand with the right product or immediacy.

I tested DSW side by side with i2d ceramic wax. I'm still undecided which I prefer.

But a ceramic wax is nothing like a ceramic coating. They appear to be very durable and hold onto there water behaviour longer than a traditional wax but they're not leaps and bounds ahead of the currently available range of durable waxes on the market.

In2Detailing wax is super easy to apply & remove compared to some of the traditional waxes if that matters to you!

There's a video on YouTube where John of Angelwax explains how ceramic waxes work. May clarify it for you.
