Homebrewed wax from South Korea

Hi, everyone,

I live in South Korea and am a big fan of Detailing world. I took a lot of impression from the RubbishBoy homebrewing thread 4 years ago. I blindly imitated and modified so many open recipes, but I gave up in less than 6 months. The waxes I made didn't imitate even the cheapest wax in the world. At that time I was so frustrated. 2 years have passed since I gave up. I have been making homebrew carnauba wax for about 6 months. I've done around 50 different homebrews by now and made an acceptable wax to some degree. I'd like to introduce my homebrewed wax to you all.



All ingredients melted and poured into the pot






After cooling




Another color







I prepared the test panel that was cut off from the car and gave it a good paint cleaning followed by IPA wipe down. Vid shows there is no wax on the test panel.

I'm sorry, I don't know how to show Youtube vid directly.

Left side is for my wax, right side for BF Midnight Sun Ivory Carnauba wax.





Both sides thinly applied




buffed off clean easily in 15 minutes





did a water test. Left side is mine, Right side is a BF wax

http://youtu.be/qyq-JHrrjt4



gave both sides a good wash





did water test again

http://youtu.be/JyLMzQKehsg




gave both sides second wash and rinsed off

http://youtu.be/8Wbdptvx_dQ





My wax was applied on my solid black car and buffed off.






2 days after applying the wax it rained, I could see the natural beading.





I didn't stick to the content of the carnauba and the ingredients that the wax manufacturers claimed to include.

Thanks for reading my humble writing.


June Kim

Really nice water beading, just a question of how long it lasts!

Great write up as well

Thanks! It requires so much time, patience, pain and headache. But I enjoyed them all.

Thanks! I'm careful in comment on its durability because the conditions vary. As for me, 2 weeks later after applying the wax, the beading and sheeting was still nice though the height of beading got lower slightly and the speed of sheeting got slower a little. I washed my car weekly. I think I need to keep observing its durability.

Thanks! Please see above and one more thing ! After 5 consecutive washes & rinses without interval, the beading and sheeting was still nice.

Nicely done mate. That looks pretty good!
Could you give a tiny hint of the ingredients?

I've done about 50 batches to, and my best is still worthless.

Thanks, mate! I don't use linseed oil, orange oil, sunflower oil and etc. I put the silicone fluid into wax to enhance the ease of use. I think the most important is what you select as solvent. It's my humble opinion.
