Automotive wax comes in both spray form and hard wax form. Although hard wax takes longer to apply then spray wax, the durability and protection from hard wax is far greater. This is especially important during winter. Hard wax creates a soft shell around your vehicle protecting it from damage from the elements throughout the winter. Hard wax need to be applied every 3 months or so to keep up its durability throughout harsh conditions.

Spray wax is very quick to apply making it very convenient, and the application process is a great way to touch up the look of your car and bring out a nice glossy finish. Spray wax is best used between hard wax applications.

Ceramic Coating

In the last few years, ceramic coating has provided the new standard for paint protection. Ceramic coatings form a molecular bond with your vehicle's clear coat, meaning that high quality coating will last years. Ceramic Pro is a multi-layerable, clear, liquid nano-ceramic coating. When cured, this technology will transform itself on the surface to a permanent, ridged, flexible glass shield. Ceramic Pro can be described as an additional clear coat, with 3 times the hardness and self-cleaning properties.
