Waxing a car involves applying a thin coat of wax to your car’s paint, allowing it to slightly harden, and then buffing it off with a towel or polisher. While it may appear that you’ve removed all the wax from your vehicle’s paint, a thin protective coat is left behind. Although not visible to the naked eye this protective coat has numerous benefits for your car’s paint. Following are reasons to wax your car regularly…
Protects Your Vehicle’s Paint Job
Wax acts as a barrier between elements and your car’s paint. It shields the car from minor physical abuse such as scraping by grime and grit during washing. In addition, it makes washing much easier. Corrosive materials left from bugs, birds, sap, salt, and more can actually break down the sealant that protects your car’s paint. Wax adds an extra layer of protection. Keep in mind that when getting your car professionally waxed, there is a world of difference between a hand wax job and wax applied by an automated car wash. A hand wax job provides meaningful, long-term protection for your car.
Prevent and Hide Scratches
Car wax smooths the paint surface and will reduce the friction between debris and your car, meaning that tiny debris is more likely to slide off your car rather than damage it. … Fills In Scratches – Make no mistake, wax will NOT remove scratches from your car. But it can fill some of them in. Many small scratches can actually appear to be removed and become completely unnoticeable with a layer of wax.
Easier To Clean
One great reason to wax your car that many people might not know is that a wax will make your car a lot easier to get clean. Inevitably, you will get bugs, sap, and all other sorts of things dripping onto your car. Wax will prevent them from making contact with your paint. They will then be wiped away with a car wash or will come off when the wax is removed. Without a coat of wax, these things may need a full detail to be properly removed.
Better Gas Mileage
A Waxed Car = Better Miles Per Gallon (MPG). It may be overlooked, but the appearance of your car can actually effect it’s miles per gallon. When it comes to aerodynamics, a waxed and clean car will allow air to move freely across the surface (less resistance). Research finds that a waxed car will gain an extra 2.4 MPG.
