Wax on wax?

The rain is currentky bouncing off Autoglym's Ultra HD wax. I have been given a gift of some Meguiar's Ultimate Liquid Wax.

Is it bad practice to wax on wax?

Is it very bad practice to wax on Maguiar's wax on top of Autoglym's wax?

I don't see any reason why you couldn't apply one wax over another. I tend to. I don't panel wipe every time I apply a new wax, just wash and apply a new wax over the top.
Worst case is that it doesn't adhere as well and washes away quicker, leaving the old wax doing its thing again.

If the wax is solvent heavy, it might strip some of the Ultra HD wax. Not worth it in my opinion. I'd leave it alone and apply the new wax once the Ultra HD starts to fail.

I’ve put wax over wax - most of time it’s the same wax, so in effect topping the wax up. If you’re going to use a different wax, it might not bond as well, so may not last quite as long, or as above may strip some previous wax away

End the day, if you fancy trying it out before the UHD wax has died off, go for it

Is this not actually a sealant?

That will add nothing to the finish or water behavior, waste of time pal

I don't know the science behind this but I have put "wax on wax" for want of a better phrase and it's worked OK. I only do this when the beading is starting to diminish however otherwise you are waxing the wax if that makes sense.
