Wax test: Bilt Hamber Double Speed-wax Vs Tonyin/in2detailing Ceramic Crystal Coating

For ease of writing I'll be shorting the names to
DSW = Double Speed-Wax
CCCW = Crystal ceramic coating wax

I often run little tests comparing waxes and sealants but the claims and price of these two got me interested. There are a lot of cheap and durable waxes that are simple rubbish to apply and use. Overal gloss and finish isn't something that will often win me over as durability is always key as I'm quite hard on LSP's doing a lot of miles and muddy grimey roads.

The car is a new to us 2014 Ford S-max in ruby or candy red, the one with the metallic or tinted clear coat that looks spectacular. Recently clayed, the bonnet and from wings were prepped with a waterless wash, bilt hamber cleanser polish with a foam applicator to remove previous waxes, followed by a final wipedown with bilt hamber cleanser fluid.

Air temp was about 4-5'C quite dry and sun out on the panel. Applied and weighted a maximum 3-4 minutes before removing.

Both waxes were very nice and easy to apply. Spread easily over the wing and half bonnet with a single twist in the wax pot, but CCCW felt a little nicer to spead. When it came to remove again both were nice and easy to deal with.l, but again CCCW was just that little bit nicer.

With the bonnet split straight down the middle there was a clear line where the DSW had darkened the finish more than CCCW. The slickness of DSW was also a clear improvement over CCCW. No water behaviour tests yet as I wanted to make sure everything gets a chance to cure.

Car will be maintained with wax safe prewash and shampoo products with no top ups or QDs on the bonnet to maintain true performance but the wings will probably be topped up.

Will try and update every couple of washes with the waxes performance over the salty winter period.

Never used anything from the fusso range.

Comparing to the likes of other heavy durable waxes that I've used in the past like colli 476, autoglym HD wax, bouncers fortify, these two waxes are in a different league when it comes to nice application.

Excellent job, interesting read and looking forward to the durability.

I presume from your comments, you preferred the look / feel of DSW at the end ?

Interesting cure time, I haven't used DSW but I have a test going on mine at the moment. I gave ceramic crystal around 15 minute cure time to really bond and it was effortless to remove still, that was back at the end of October. Still very impressive water behaviour

I have had The Ceramic wax from In2detailing for a few months on the car.Very happy with it in every way.I received Some Double Speed Wax a week ago and other than the sticker on the tin.They seem identical.

Unlike some, I’m sure BH produce their own products.

Did it even smell the same?
