Is Car Polishing and Car Waxing the Same?
Dubai is a city that has one of the highest per capita ownership of cars. You can see all kinds of cars on the roads in Dubai ranging from the Bugattis of the Dubai Police to the small Smart cars of those who want to be smart. Everyone wants their car to look good, but when it comes to actual terms involved in car care, most people are a bit hazy. Ask anyone what the difference between car polishing and waxing is and you will get many different answers. Technically, there is the only the right answer. Car polishing and car wax procedures are totally different and yet both are equally important in helping your vehicle to retain its new car look.
A car polish is a car care product comprising mild abrasives which can be used on a vehicle’s surface to remove a microscopic layer of paint and any imperfections like swirl marks, acid etchings caused by bird droppings, scratches, paint chips and water spots. It lends a very smooth and even appearance to the external appearance of the paint and the use of car polish is a preliminary step when it comes to the actual car waxing process. We cannot expect car polish to be a magic solution that will take care of all paint defects. It will only eliminate mild surface defects which have not penetrated the clear coat and the layers below the clear coat.
