But it is confidential (proprietary) information, which they're not at liberty to divulge for competitors to latch onto.
They're no different from the other manufacturers who don't openly declare theirs, citing competition reasons as well.

Sorry to but-in but having faffed about for 2-3 weeks trying to decide what wax, sealant, glaze, etc to have my first go at detailing with I think I've settled on "Finis"

But I'll gladly bow to experience.

I'm drawn to finis as it appears to be a protective coating rather than a sealant. But can or should you layer it for best effect? And what main difference between Balm and finis.

Is it best suited to older cars/paints? My plan is to use it on a new polo.

We've released this and the auto-balm in 50ml tubs now, they come with an app-pad.

The finis-wax will be really good on a new Polo but why not try both I'm sure you will notice a visable difference.

You can layer Finis in fact it tends to be well recommended to do 2 layers as hope fully you will have certainly covered the whole motor....

Autobalm is another great product is a great filler adds shine and Gloss what we as forum members have tried to find is getting something to sit over the Balm to help give more longevity but then again most of us cant help putting more stuff on...

Here is a Pic of Micro fine on the left and the Finis over that on the right.

Great idea on the 50ml tubs a great way to try them out and see which works best for you or even together.

Now that sounds like an opportunity to do a twin deal....

Alas i have 3 balm and 2 finis already....
