Collinite Wax - It seriously Amazing


Recommended Posts

Pretty new to the forum so if this has been talked about excuse me...

 

Collinite no. 845

 

It's my dirty little secret. It's simply the best car wax I have ever used. It goes on and off incredibly easy, gives a brilliant shine, and lasts a looooooong time. It's also great for not leaving much white residue on any black plastic parts you happen to get it on.

 

This stuff was originally intended for insulating electrical wires on telephone poles but has gained a cult following in the car detail business. It's also really affordable. You can get it on Amazon and one bottle lasts a long time. I'm still on my first and have put at least 20 some coats of wax on my vehicles out of this bottle with about 5 waxes left.

 

Seriously, if you don't know about it, give it a try. It makes waxing so easy and your truck will look incredible.

 

Use a foam applicator pad like the ones meguairs sells to apply. Normal wax application techniques. Just make sure it is fluidy when you go to use it. If it's cold and the collinite is thick, sit the bottle in warm water for a bit until the product becomes liquidy. Apply in small circles, let sit until running your finger across a waxed section easily wipes it away, and then buff off with a microfiber towel.

 

Thank me later! ; )

 

Any questions let me know, but the Amazon reviews speak for themselves.

Never heard of this stuff, youtube videos look amazing! Lets see some pictures of your waxed truck.

I haven't waxed my truck yet, but when I get a chance I'll post some pics of my wrangler I waxed with it. As soon as I get some time I'll be putting a few coats on my truck as well. I just got it last week.

I got a bottle a few months ago and I feel the same way you do about. I chalked it up as a hell of a find. Somebody on this forum suggested it but I don't remember who.

i love it!!! the best wax hands down! i have my brother father and father in law using it now!

 

i cant believe how long it lasts through the weather, washes, and daily use of the truck when it rains a month or two down the road the vehicle still sheds water like it was just waxed!!

 

i wish i could find something to put over it that would add to its shine though.....any ideas anyone??

I recommend using a quick detailing spray (I use meguair's ultimate quick detailer) in between wax jobs after a wash, and as a finishing step after I wax. You can get meguair's QD spray on Amazon or the big box stores for about $5. It gives it a great shine. To extend my newly waxed looked, sometimes I'll wax it, then wait a couple days and use the QD and it brings it right back.

 

I just finally got my whole truck waxed on Friday, and ran out at lunch today and got hit with a five minute torrential down pour. Hopped on the road and all the water droplets on my hood rolled right off. It was beautiful ; ).

 

The best part about collinite is how easy it goes on and buffs off. If you wait too long it still comes off easy, and it's pretty good about not leaving white residue on the black plastics. It still will, but not as bad as some other waxes ived tried. I even used it on the chrome on my grill and it makes getting the bugs off easier. I also use the QD on the chrome and it cleans them up nice.

 

I took some nice pictures of it freshly waxed - I'll get them off my camera and post them.

Hastings 53 Bucket and Boom wax is awesome. (Very Very Very durable) I used to do maintenance on Bucket Trucks for Electrical Co-ops and Utility Companies and we coated the Fiberglass portions of the booms and the Hot-Sticks the Linemen used.
