Wax Conditioner


This formulation produces a traditional high-wax-content polish, typically used by classic car owners. This polish is suitable for cleaned paintwork, but also can be used on wood dashboards and chrome bumpers. The silicone wax contributes to durability of the product, with the silicone resin aiding leveling characteristics.
