DBL-A Home Brew Wax

I am new to Detailing world and set up an account to show you guys what i have been creating after reading all the homebrew threads on here i thought it was my time to share what i have been brewing up! 3 months of research and creative work here is my findings so far...

Gone from a 3/4 ingredient recipe to a 10/11 currnetly!

My first attempt: too crumbly and hard





My second: too hard again but not crumbly



Next was to make it softer and try some new ingredients that arrived:


Came out very oily but i think i am getting somewhere...

Applied a quick coat of wax 5 on a panel:



Took 8 mins to haze at around 12 degrees...
The results...


Not bad if i do say so myself

A few more batches and adjustments were made then i started playing with colour, scents and new ingredients 😏
here is no.7 pink, berries good texture and consistency but missing that oily texture i am used to on a car wax


no.8 orange, orange: i removed and ingredient on this one to see the outcome... Think its got to stay in after testing side by side against batch 5 though

Although i did manage to find a mates roof to test this batch on and i was very impressed with the findings..


My last batch curently
no.9 blue, blueberry
This is a batch which i have not yet tested but i have two pots going to two friends to test and review for me soon!


I will keep this thread updated as much as i can... Batch 10 will be made shortly after batch 9 has been tested and reviewed and depending on the feedback i get that will determin my ingredient levels for batch 10.

Any feedback would be fnatastic Guys!
Thanks for reading

Thank you, just hope its as good as it looks, thinking about trying some liquid silicone at some point to get the bead and sheeting on point

Thank you,
I hope to get batch ten working in the next week, as i may now try adjusting a level of an ingredient as it is abit hard to remove in my opinion

Quick update:
A new present arived in the post today so thought it would be rude to not use it... So batch No.9 was tested on my car and Batch 10 was created- with a change of colour and smell and a little tweak in the recipe:

No.9 application:
took about 4 minutes to cure in 18 degree weather


The results:


I am not sure if the video will work but here is a video of the beading and sheeting of No.9


I need to make removal slighlty easier I think- so I made up batch 10 with that in mind: Green and Apple scent




I Love The colour!!!!

It's ready to be tested sometime next week.... Fingers crossed
