最近越來越忙
沒太多時間和大家分享
每次拍一堆照或是找到一些資料想發表
一想到要花時間打字編輯就懶了@@哈哈...
好東西總是令人值得去等待嘛~

這是我轉貼國外autogeek的資料~
讓大家知道其實國外的做法:封體之後加棕櫚
封膜劑的效果主要是保護車漆,大概都可撐半年以上
在封膜劑之後再使用棕櫚蠟
用棕櫚蠟的潑水自潔效果來保護封膜劑,
因為兩種不同效果,持久度也不同
喜歡的人也會不同
有的喜歡封體劑的效果,定期上封體劑
有的喜歡棕櫚蠟的潑水,定期上棕櫚蠟
端看個人需求度
和大家分享囉~


喜歡的話,記得幫我們推一下,也和其他人分享~

Carnauba Car Wax vs. Paint Sealants

Learn the facts on Car wax!

You have two basic choices when it comes to paint protection: carnauba wax or synthetic paint sealant. Here you歓l find information on each so you can choose the paint protection that旧 right for you.

 


 

Carnauba Waxes

Carnauba wax is the preferred car wax of collectors and concours enthusiasts because it creates a rich, warm glow. It doesn急 appear to sit on the paint. It transforms the paint into a deep, liquid pool that shimmers under changing light conditions. The more carnauba wax, the more shine.

The wax is produced by the Brazilian Tree of Life, a palm tree, in order to coat its leaves. The wax provides protection from the sweltering sun and it sheds water so it falls onto the ground and is absorbed by the tree旧 roots. If you think back to junior high science class, you might remember that plants release oxygen through their leaves. For this reason, carnauba wax is breathable. Good for the tree and good for your paint.

Carnauba is rock hard in its natural form. When the leaves of the Tree of Life are harvested, the wax flakes off as the leaves dry out, or they are put into a machine that removes the wax. It comes off in hard flakes. Car Wax makers have to blend the wax with oils, petroleum distillates, or a solvent called naptha (commonly used to thin wood varnishes and paints) in order to make the wax workable. The very best carnauba-based car wax is only about 1/3 natural carnauba. It旧 probably for the best since the price gets higher and higher as the concentration of carnauba rises. When a product advertises 断ure carnauba car wax?or ?00% carnauba car wax? they are referring to the purity of the carnauba that is in the product, not the product as a whole. One example is Mother旧 California Gold Pure Carnauba Paste Wax. 

That brings us to grading. Carnauba is harvested and then graded according to color, purity, and where it was grown. Trees grown in the northern area of Brazil produce the highest grade carnauba. The yellow wax is the most pure and therefore receives the highest grade. This is the grade most commonly used in high end car waxes and in the pharmaceutical industry as a pill coating.

Some manufacturers refine the yellow wax again into an ultra-pure white wax to ensure that the wax produces the clearest, most reflective gloss once applied to the paint. Such is the case with Pinnacle Souveranand Pinnacle Signature Series II.

As you挙e already read, carnauba protects the leaves of a palm tree from the intense heat and humidity experienced in Brazil. The carnauba car wax repels water and, consequently, most contaminants. When applied to any surface, carnauba retains these characteristics. Therefore, an application of a carnauba-based car wax to your vehicle will protect it from UV rays, heat, moisture, oxidation, and environmental contamination. And it looks like a million bucks!

The drawback of carnauba waxes, if you can call it a drawback, is that it does not last as long as a synthetic sealant. A carnauba car wax finish will wear off in approximately 6 to 8 weeks. It depends heavily on the climate in which you live and whether or not your vehicle is garaged. Daily commutes in a hot, humid climate mean a shorter life span for your carnauba wax coat. If you enjoy regular waxing, then the life span of a carnauba wax is just one more reason to indulge in your favorite hobby!

In a nutshell, carnauba car wax is the wax of enthusiasts. It appeals to people who want the absolute most stunning show car shine available and are willing to spend a couple of hours every month or so to get it. Most of them will tell you it is time well spent.

 


 

Paint Sealants

Paint sealants are kind of the anti-carnauba. They last a lot longer, they are easy to apply, and there旧 nothing natural about them. This is surface science at its best.

A paint sealant is made of polymers, which are composed of tens of thousands of synthetic particles that are linked together. When a sealant bonds to your vehicle旧 paint, it forms a rigid shell. It is not the warm carnauba that seems to melt into the paint. Paint sealants sit on top of the paint like a transparent chain metal suit. They are glossy and slick, but carnauba lovers will tell you they do not have the warmth and depth of a carnauba.

Paint sealants have gotten progressively more popular as time goes on. Some people really love the hard-as-glass look. In an industry that is driven by technology, it seems appropriate that an engineered paint protector is the new favorite among many detailers.

However, the real selling point of a paint sealant is the durability. A premium paint sealant can last 4 to 6 months, sometimes longer. Klasse High Gloss Sealant Glaze, for example, can last up to 12 months. Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0lasts the more typical 4 to 6 months. By 濯ast? I mean that water will continue to bead and the paint will remain protected from UV rays and contamination. For people that spend more time driving than detailing, the paint sealant is the way to go.

Paint sealants are extremely easy to apply. They are always in liquid form and they spread easily by hand or with a polisher. This time-saving feature makes paint sealants an attractive choice for those who like instant gratification, and who doesn急?

As you挙e seen, there are a lot of differences between paint sealants and natural carnauba waxes. Glassy, hard shell or deep, liquid shine? Six months or six weeks? These are the basic questions you have to answer before selecting your paint protection.

However, a growing number of enthusiasts simply refuse to choose. Instead, they coat their vehicles with a layer of sealant for long-lasting protection and then top it with a layer of carnauba for the dazzling shine. Even if you forget to reapply carnauba in 6 weeks, your paint won急 suffer. The Forum Favorite Kitwill give a prime example of the shine you can get from a sealant topped with a carnauba. It旧 the perfect marriage of beauty and longevity!

Remember, paint protection is one of your vehicle旧 basic necessities. No matter what kind of product you choose, Autogeek has got your vehicle covered.

  • 請問上完櫻桃蠟之後,要隔多久才能再上封體呢?
  • 您好,請問是InstaFinish的櫻桃蠟嗎?
    如果是,它屬性是清潔蠟,所以當做清潔蠟去汙後,可以接著上其他保護性蠟品
    但是如果是要接著塗封體,建議櫻桃蠟後先脫脂去殘蠟再上封體。
