Which QD with no wax or sealant.

Can anyone recommend a QD that has no wax or sealant in it please? This is important as it's to be used on a car which has just been repainted so needs to "breath" for a few months. Thanks.

I picked up my car from the bodyshop a few weeks back I asked the guy how long until I can wax it as I thought it needs to breathe. His response was that the work was guaranteed for two years and if I could wax it to failure then he'd not done his job right so I could wax straight away. I applied that same day a coat of Britemax Extreme Elements and topped it with Waxed Junkies Coco Copernicia. This hasn't caused any issues.

So what happens with new cars then? If it's been painted correctly then it surely it should be ready for protection pretty much straight away.

new ones and most bodyshops will bake the paint to cure it

if its been air dried then it needs to wait a bit , otherwise carry on

New car chassis go after painting through a furnace/heat room before other interior & plastic bits get mounted on so the paint bakes on and the solvents evaporate faster.

You can not replicate that process afterwards unless you use IR heat lights...but no one does.

There are paint safe products but I would just ask the paintshop how long you should wait before using your products
