The Best Car Polishes On The Market 2020 – Reviews

18.03.2020 0

Car polishes is a multi-faceted and important element of the automotive chemical industry, with more than a dozen varieties and methods of working with it. The basic component of its composition has always been abrasive particles of various degrees of softness and dispersion, which have a mechanical effect on the workpiece. During the development of production technologies, the composition has undergone many changes and modifications, as a result of which the abrasive base was either completely excluded from it, or (for the sake of increasing the complexity of the action) was supported by other elements. Today, dozens of large and small companies that occupy leading positions in the segment of auto chemical products are engaged in the production of auto polishes. The difficulty of choosing in such a situation is entirely due to the abundance of options. In this regard IMCarExperts.com, together with a number of staff experts, prepared a rating of the best car polishes. The selection was made based on the following parameters: price criteria; performance indicators (efficiency, components, duration); the degree of harm to human compounds and their impact on various surfaces of the car; the popularity of the manufacturer in the market.

Dual action polishers differ from rotary buffers in that rotary buffers have fixed circular rotation without oscillating the pad allowing for safer paint correction.
  • ✅ A MUST HAVE AUTO DETAILING TOOL – This versatile tool is designed to paint correct an entire vehicle of any size. Large enough to polish a truck or suv and small enough to correct small vehicles and tough to reach areas. The power cord is a soft rubber design that is 25-foot length for easier maneuverability around the vehicle.

10 Best Car Polishes

Despite the types, the functions of any car polish (whether it is professional or for General use) are almost the same. They consist in protecting the car body from the following harmful factors:

  • ultraviolet (bright sunlight, which causes the body to lose its original color over the years, that is, it fades out);
  • chemical reagents on roads (relevant for winter time, when road services sprinkle the road surface with a special compound that not only corrodes the ice on the roads, but also negatively affects the surface of the car body, another harmful factor in the warm season — bitumen stains);
  • dirt and stains (the composition does not allow them to be deeply absorbed into the body, so it is much easier to wash the spots later, without damaging the paintwork);
  • mechanical damage (for example, blows from branches when driving in a forest, possible scratches with minor contact with the body of foreign objects, and so on).

As mentioned above, professional polishes are much more effective at coping with their tasks and last longer, but such preparations are much more expensive. In addition, they can only be applied in service centers. This is due to the fact that such a procedure requires special equipment, proper surface preparation, as well as personnel familiar with the relevant technology.

As for car body polishes that can be applied independently, they are divided into three types — with natural wax, based on synthetic polishes and a mixture of natural and synthetic components. Without going into details, it is worth noting that the first type is not so popular, because it has lower performance characteristics. The second type is the best in this class, because it reliably protects the body and lasts longer than the others (up to 12 months). As for mixed compositions, they have average characteristics.

Synthetic polishes for the car body can also be detected by smell. The more distinct the smell of petroleum products comes from the product, the more likely it is that it is made on the basis of synthetic materials. Polish for hand polishing the body are also based on nanoresonator. The smaller the particles of the substance, the better they interact with the paint coating, and last longer. However, often the prefix “nano” is nothing more than a marketing move by various manufacturers.

Choosing a good car polish

When choosing a particular tool, you can not accurately answer the question of what are the best polishes for the car body. This is an incorrect statement of the question. The fact is that the car polish is chosen largely for certain purposes. For example, some are better protected from stains and dirt, others from UV exposure, and others are universal.

Protective polishes for the body are divided by aggregate States. There are three such types on sale — in solid (paste-like), liquid States and in the form of cream. Their actions are almost identical. However, it is worth noting that solid funds last longer (approximately 20…30 treatments), and a tube of liquid car body polish will only last for 5…6 treatments. However, the liquid product is cheaper.

Another subspecies of hand polishes for the body is protective equipment for new paintwork. There are also polishes with a water-repellent effect. There are also so-called abrasive polishes, the purpose of which is to get rid of scratches. However, this is a specific tool that can not be used often on old bodies. Restorative car polish should be used at least twice a year (depending on the validity of the selected tool), and preventive — once every six months.

When choosing a car polish, you must first start from the age of the car. In addition, you need to decide what you want to achieve-body protection, scratch removal or rich color. As a rule, the purpose of the product is indicated on its packaging or in the operating instructions.
