There is a common misconception that silicone-based polishes and waxes are bad for your vehicle’s paint. Once again, this is a long-standing myth coming from none other than grandpa. Today, we have a better understanding of how to take care of our vehicles and their shiny exteriors.
The fact of the matter is, silicone-based products are only harmful to new paint, especially, paint that is between 60-90 days old.
Fresh paint continuously releases solvents in a process coined, “off-gassing.” Not the kind of gasses released from your grandpa- just saying. Silicone in polishes will coat the paint and prevent it from adequately drying which can harm its appearance after the curing process.
Thus the benefits of a silicone-free based wax before the 90 days are evident.
All-in-one polish is safe to use on your vehicle after that 90-day “off-gassing” period. All-in-one polish combines a finishing polish and a wax sealant in one product which helps you eliminate half of the work associated with polishing your vehicle. When using your buffer, you should only need one type of pad, and when it’s wiped off, it’s polished and protected all with one application. Just in case anyone’s grandfather wanted to know!
