Does the Mirror Bright wheel cleaner have color changing iron dissolving properties like DUB wheel cleaner?

Yes it does. The product dispenses as a white foam, and it does have similar color changing iron dissolving chemistry. The color changing effect is always going to vary depending on how much iron deposits are actually on the wheel.

For those familiar with our existing products, if we were to compare, Mirror Bright would fit in-between our Gold Class & Ultimate Lines. For those who are just getting into car care, or the "next generation car guy," Mirror Bright is a new brand, which aims to help them easily choose products which address most aspects of basic car care, while providing premium performance.

Some of the bottles at the back in the middle look like some of the VERY early Meguiar's bottles from a time long, long ago. And with the colourless image, is Meguiar's going back in time and re-releasing all their original products from the early 1900's? 'New Products for 1916' perhaps? :laughing

Mr Winn you said this line fits in betweeen the Gold Class & Ultimate lines. So is the polishing wax a cross between GCCP & NXT 2.0; and the detailing spray a cross between GCQD & UQD? If I polish my car with UP and then use this would it remove the polishing oils from the UP or just add to it? Does the Mirror Brite polishing wax have more polish or less than Black Wax or GCCP? I'm trying to wrap my head around these new products. I am a carnauba junkie. Which way would have better swirl removing / filling properties - UP folllowed by NXT 2.0 & topped with GCCP; UP followed by Mirror Brite Polishing Wax & topped with GCCP; or just MBPW topped with GCCP? I do all my steps with the DA Power System with black waxing pads. UP on the yellow pad is too harsh for my car's single stage no clear coat paint. And I haven't used Black Wax because it doesn't have any swirl removal ability on a black pad.

Well, Brian said above:

And from this graphic:

Black Wax is more aggressive than Cleaner Wax. So by my powers of deduction, I'd say Polishing Wax is more aggressive than Cleaner Wax. :)

Mirror Bright Polishing Wax is a synthetic & carnauba blend, but with durability that reaches towards Ultimate Wax. Mirror Bright Polishing Wax can leave a white residue on non-painted exterior plastic or rubber trim.

Cleaning ability is similar, but MB Polishing Wax will have more durability.

Since MB Polishing Wax contains polymers, it is always a good idea to wait overnight before applying another coat of the product or washing the vehicle.

Mirror Bright Polishing Wax utilizes mild SMAT abrasive technology.

We wanted to bring back some of the old school style into the directions for the shampoo. : )

For the polishing wax...how does it compare to M20 in terms of cleaning and durability? Also, can UW be layered on top?

If one prefers, yes, Meguiar's Mirror Bright Polishing Wax can be used as a base for another wax, like Ultimate Wax. In fact, all of Meguiar's Cleaner Waxes can be used as a base and then topped with another wax for added protection. It should be noted that if one is going after the best results, it would be best to use a dedicated cleaner/polish first, and then follow with a dedicated wax like Ultimate, Gold Class, NXT etc. Although some of us use cleaners waxes like you have indicated, apply first, then follow with another product, which is perfectly OK, Cleaner Waxes are intended to be "all in one" products, so one does not have to do multiple steps.

If we were to compare M20 to MB Polishing Wax, the cleaning ability is similar but MB Polishing Wax will have more durability.

Mirror Bright is a new line of products inspired by our long standing traditions, utilizing all new technology. Taking back to our traditions, but re-crafted. 5 key items for interior & exterior, and mutli-purpose, easy to use, modern formulations. All of the formulations are ground up, clean slate formulas, and not based off existing products, and to say the least these have some pretty special chemistry! Even some of the fragrances in MB mimic the scents of products from the old days. Mirror Bright Automobile Shampoo is a Wash & Wax and Mirror Bright Polishing Wax cleans, polishes, and waxes in one step. Mirror Bright Detailing Spray is safe for inside and outside use. MB Leather Lotion is also a multi purpose product, cleans, conditions, and protects in one step. Lastly MB Wheel Cleaner is safe for all wheels.

These products can help a new car guy easily choose a line of products that will address virtually every aspect of basic car care, while providing premium performance. For users experienced with car care, this line offers some unique performance characteristics that you will find not only appealing, but highly effective.

Our new Mirror Bright products perform above the standards of our Gold Class line where applicable, and our Ultimate Line of products remain the best in performance characteristics.

We hope this information was helpful! We can't wait to see what you guys think!

We don't have an aggressive level chart for our consumer line of products. Sorry! This is mainly because most of the products in our consumer line with cleaning ability are pretty mild, unless it is a Scratch remover or Compound.

Hey Bandit,

There is no Wax properties in Mirror Bright Detailing Spray.

Nick here's another question for you. I saw some water beading and sheeting characteristics from Mirror Bright detail spray, as part of a side by side test with another new detail spray that hit the market that claims a layer of protection.

A little bit of background to give you an idea of what I did.

I have an aftermarket hood on my car, so that leaves me with my factory hood as a test panel. What I did to prep the surface was that I used a polish on my DA to remove anything that was on the surface. I then proceeded with an IPA wipedown and then following up with the Mirror Bright Detail Spray. I left the hood out overnight as it was going to rain the next day.

This is what I saw the next day.

http://www.autogeekonline.net/gallery/data/3030/medium/IMG_5202_Mirror_Bright.jpg


From what I can tell it appears to leave something on the surface even if it may not be as durable as ultimate quik detailer/M135. Just wondering if Mirror Bright does alter the surface tension other than added slickness and gloss.

Thanks.

Thanks.By simple virtue of the fact that it adds slickness and gloss, it alters the surface tension of the paint, yes. But it's a quick detail spray, and not a spray wax. Durability is not something you should be looking for in a quick detailer, including UQD/M135. UQW/D156, on the other hand, are surprisingly durable but they are also full on polymer spray waxes and not quick detailers.

For the time being, the only national auto parts chain that has picked up the Mirror Bright line is AutoZone (distribution timing will vary slightly from store to store, however) although it is widely available online and of course there are those independent stores that will stock it. That it's in the gas station at Lemoore Naval Air Station is interesting, but there's an awful of really smart people in the Navy so it kinda makes sense. ;)

By simple virtue of the fact that it adds slickness and gloss, it alters the surface tension of the paint, yes. But it's a quick detail spray, and not a spray wax. Durability is not something you should be looking for in a quick detailer, including UQD/M135. UQW/D156, on the other hand, are surprisingly durable but they are also full on polymer spray waxes and not quick detailers.


Thanks Mike. I was just curious as to whether or not there was something left behind. It was surprising to see such nice beading and sheeting from it. I am in agreement that D156 is a better alternative to any detail spray as the beading and sheeting characteristics from Mirror Bright detail spray were short lived.

The Mirror Bright Polishing Wax does have some light defect removing capability. Keep in mind that paint hardness, not just the depth of the defect, always plays a part in the process. You should also understand that many scenarios will prove the need for a dedicated paint cleaner like Ultimate Compound before waxing.

This really raises the age old question of a one-step cleaner/wax versus a multi-step process. The right solution is heavily dependent on the specifics of your situation and personal goals.

Nick how is the correction ability with a burgundy cutting disk? We know that cut is also pad dependent as well as paint hardness as you stated.

Hey Guz,

I actually have not tried this combination. I know Stoops has had success using White Wax on our DFC5 5 inch Foam Cutting Disc with our MT300 in some situations as a one step, but White Wax has much more cleaning ability than Mirror Bright Polishing Wax.

Thanks Nick for the honest feedback. I have experienced the same correcting ability with a DFC5 foam cutting disc as Mike. White wax excels in that effort. I was just curious if the polishing wax would still do a pretty good job, not expecting it to be on the same level as White Wax. But to also take advantage of the longer durability of the polishing wax over white wax. There is all this talk lately on other forums about all in one type products that can correct well but leave a longer lasting protection. Basically a cleaner sealant. If I get the chance I will give the polishing wax a try to see how this combination fairs.

I have one other thing to mention about the wheel cleaner as I used it the other day once again. Is there a way to increase the clinging ability of it? I found zero clinging of it the last time I used it on a set of wheels. It ran right off the wheel and didn't do anything. Even with the foaming sprayer. I would much prefer this to be in a gel type format versus the liquid.

The Polishing Wax is less aggressive than White Wax but more aggressive than Black Wax. How does that work if you are the type to wax your car every 2 months or so, would you want to limit a polishing wax to once or twice a year?

Can the Mirror Bright Leather Lotion be used on synthetic leather like BMW's SensaTec of Mercedes-Benz's MB-Tex?
