Q.
WHAT ARE "NEW “AND "LIKE NEW" FINISHES?
A
"New" and "like new" are finishes that have maintained a brilliant, high-gloss appearance.
Regular maintenance of these finishes will help to preserve that appearance.
Q.
WHAT IS A GLAZE?
A
A glaze is a polish that is safe for use on fresh paints. Glazes also have varying degrees of aggressiveness.
A glaze should be followed either by a wax or cured paint. Its primary use is to enhance surface gloss and luster on fresh paint. It needs to be re-applied frequently to ensure a good glossy paint surface is maintained and it can be waxed regularly. Motomax Paint Sealant is ideal for the application mentioned above.
Q.
WHAT CAUSES SWIRL MARKS ON CAR PAINT?
A
Swirl marks are created due to the following reasons:
- Applying conventional wax/polish
- Using terry towels or any other towels that have a rough texture
- Wiping the paint surface dry when dusty / dirty
- Use of dirty water to wash the car
Q.
WHY DO I NEED MOTOMAX CAR WASH SHAMPOO?
A
Motomax Car Wash Shampoo is specially formulated to remove dirt, grime and grease commonly found on vehicle surfaces. It has minimal or no effect on the waxed or painted surface (recommended ph value 7 – neutral).
Other shampoos, such as dish washing detergents, are formulated to remove tougher grease stains like cooking oil. These stronger soaps can attack a wax finish, reducing the overall life of the wax.
Q.
CAN I USE TOWELS TO DRY MY CAR?
A
For the most part any towel can be used to dry your car, but not all towels can get it dry without leaving swirl marks. Clean chamois, 100% cotton terry cloth and microfiber cloth are the safest towels to use for car care, as they've been tested to treat your finish without creating abrasions.

When you use an old t-shirt, shop rag or cloth diaper, you're risking abrasions with towels that may have embedded dirt particles. They may be of a fabric blend that's not soft on your paint. The best way to dry your car and minimize the risk of scratches is to get a set of safe towels that you keep clean and separate from the rest of your rags.
