I was wondering if the US collision repair shops use waxes after polishing/compounding jobs?
In Europe painters tend to use one-step systems or maximum two steps. Nobody uses waxes. When I say “waxes” I mean protective glaze or sealant. Do not confuse with swirl removing product.
Most clears have a 90 day full cure period ,I advise not waxing them until that period is up ,machine glaze is different and allows the paint to breath but is only a temporary out the shop finish and will be washed off easily unlike true waxes which seal over and create a more durable protective layer
I use a one step product menzerna FG400 , I haven’t used anything that comes close to it
