Questions About Car Wax? Mathews Acura Has Answers!

Most drivers have used wax on their vehicles at some point, but many aren’t familiar with why wax is an important component of a car care regimen. If that’s true for you, it’s time to learn more about the important protective qualities of this unique substance.

Wax has been used for a long time as a waterproofing material, and that’s the same property that makes it ideal for protecting the finished surfaces of automobiles today. Wax is obtained from natural plant sources, including carnauba and palm leaves, and may also be manufactured synthetically from silicone-based materials. Applying a layer of wax to a vehicle promotes the shedding of water and also prevents the thin layer of dust and dirt that accumulates on the vehicle’s surface from scratching and dulling the topcoat and paint.
