Can someone please tell me if I put on a nice Carnuba Polish and then a quality Cleaner\Wax - - - will the Cleaner part of the 2nd product take off or nulify the prior Carnuba Polish?

First, what's a Carnauba Polish? We offer some waxes with Carnauba in them as do a lot of companys, but not sure about a 'polish'?

Second of all, a cleaner wax is designed to clean, that means remove, so yes, if you apply a cleaner/wax to the surface of paint you will remove whatever is on the surface of the paint to some level, it depends upon how strong the cleaner/wax is and also how you apply it. Part of the cleaning action of any product is how it is applied, if you apply a gentle cleaner wax gently it won't have much cleaning or removing action, but if you take that same product and apply it with some passion and pressure and use a material with some bite it will clean or remove more than the first way you applied it.

Lots of factors to consider.

What are you working on?
What are you trying to accomplish?

I have "Virgin" paint, rolled on Interlux Brightside 1 part Polyurethane, I need to color sand out imperfections with 1500 - 2000 Grit, then compound to smooth and polish to prepare for 1st wax.....the Carnuba Polish I am referring to is made by Poor Boys' and it is a Blue Carnuba Polish; and since I am using a Marine paint with ******, I was thinking about then using Interlux's ****** cleaner Wax,,,,,,will NOT Seal for maybe 6 months [let the paint totally cure]. I wish it was just a straight wax but it has cleaning solvents in it.

PS - I am about to purchase a G110 Kit from AGeek.
