So i guess no need for the ULW now? would be fun to try, but consider how slow Meguiars Sweden are to take in new stuff am lucky if i get to try it 2020

Question: Does it have a 24 hour cure time? I would love a wax that are ready to go the minute you put it on, not worry about any rain (i guess i answered myself there: HCW)

Please tell me this and other new Ceramic based LSP compare/contrast (in regards to how they look, how long they last, how well they protect) to the waxes selants we have been used to (meaning products ranging from Carnauba based like M26 to the more recent synethetic based products like NXT/Ultimate wax and Ultimate Fast Finish) ?

When comparing Ultimate Liquid Wax vs Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax, Ultimate Liquid Wax will likely still have superior gloss. Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax has great gloss, but is really all about protection & ease of use. Yes still 24 hour cure time, good question.

Yes, new Ceramic/SiO2 based LSP (Last Step Product). You can use it as your main source of protection or can always use in addition to a more traditional liquid or paste as a final topper(LSP).

This is now Meguiar's most advanced technology, longest lasting, most durable wax in our consumer line. With that said, it is difficult to provide specifics on length of durability because there are so many variables which can affect durability dramatically.

Yes exactly, although not exact 50/50.

Yes although the main purpose of the Hybrid Ceramic Clay Kit is to do a quick & easy clay & protection from the hybrid ceramic detailer, but yes you could do that if you would like.

Hybrid Ceramic always last so you get the benefits of the SiO2 on top, extreme water beading, self-cleaning.


Nick, what are the differences between HCLW and the new PRO Hybrid Ceramic Sealant, please?

M27 has more darkening/gloss, more durability/longevity, and is more so designed to apply to a entire vehicle, then wipe off. HCLW is more panel by panel.

There are no cleaners & no polishing oils in Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax. Full synthetic, utilizing our Ceramic/SiO2 ingredients/base chemistry technology, and all about protection.

You should actually notice dramatically LESS dust using this product or any of our other Hybrid Ceramic/SiO2 products. This is what we refer to as "Self-Cleaning", meaning, the vehicle tends to stay cleaner.

Gloss. M27 has much more gloss. Hybrid Ceramic Wax was built primarily for our latest technology in protection along with easy application. While it provides great gloss, it was not built to achieve the ultimate show car shine.

Just got my bottle today and applied some on my front bumper and headlights. (Don't have a chance to do a full blown detail due to rain here)

Initial impressions:

- I found it interesting that it does not haze, and after application it appeared to almost dry clear. The instruction itself even states so.
- The smells very similar to HCW
- Applies very easily, feels similar to Ultimate Paste wax
- Waited about 5 minutes, and the wipe off was even easier. I couldn't tell if I was wiping off anything and didn't feel any drag on the microfiber.
- The bottle design is very striking with the neon yellow bottle and label design. Surprised that the liquid itself is white. But major kudos whoever's in the design department, it's going to turn some heads at the retail stores.

No comment on durability obviously, but so far it's already enjoyable to work with. Can't wait to actually apply this after a full detail.

Hey Nick,

It just dawned on me this morning to ask, is there a "24 hour curing" time for HCLW? Basically, is it safe to get it wet immediately without worrying about it affecting long term performance?

I know that the blue HCW doesn't really need it because of the water activating chemicals.

It's raining here and admittedly I'm itching to wash my wife's SUV, lay down a coat of this, but will probably get rained on again later. lol

Hi symmetrical,

Yes, our new Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax does have the standard 24 hours curing time before it should be exposed to rain/water and really, the Hybrid Ceramic Wax Spray also should have 24 hours for best results.

AH ok I didn't know that about HCW also. (This makes sense because of the SiO2.) Looks like I'll just wait for a nicer day and save some effort. Thanks again!

OK received some clarification, 24 hour cure time is the standard for all of our waxes for maximum durability, including Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax & our G190524 Hybrid Ceramic Wax (Spray blue bottle).

Will you get still get protection & water beading performance before 24 hours, yes, absolutely, but again 24 hours is recommended for best performance. The 24 hour cure time is not as important with G190524, which was likely why it was previously mentioned by Brian that there is no cure time, but yes there was a bit of a misunderstanding, although the cure time is not as important for G190524, the 24 hour recommended cure time for best performance still applies to this product.

Hope this helps! Feel free to post further questions.

If the vehicle is prepared properly, i.e. clayed if needed, with our Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax, you should experience extreme ease of use, extreme amount of water beading, sphere like water beading shape, you will likely notice vehicle will stay cleaner, easier maintenance whether wiping down with a detail spray or washing, and of course great durability & longevity.

Hi Vettefan,

Since Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax goes on very thin and may be a bit tough to see on certain lighter colored, vehicles, we recommend applying to 1 or 2 panels at a time, then coming back and removing it. This also means our normal "swipe test" doesn't work. If you prefer to try larger areas, you are not necessarily going to hurt anything, it may just be a bit more difficult application.

A few quick questions on this as I'm getting close to my car's spring cleaning:

1) My process the last few years has been applying the 3-in-1 Wax followed by a layer of Ultimate Fast Finish. If I still wanted to start with the 3-in-1 (I don't want to lose the cleaning and correcting abilities) what would be better as a LSP, Ultimate Fast Finish or switching to the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax?

2) For maintenance I have always used Ultimate Quick Detailer and Ultimate Quik Wax. If I were to switch to having my LSP be Hybrid Ceramic, would I still use the UQD and UQW, or would I want to switch to Ceramic Detailer?

3) For maintenance, do you use both the Hybrid Ceramic Detailer and Hybrid Ceramic Wax sprays like you do UQD and UQW, or just one of the 2?

Thanks in advance!

I just read in the Meguiar's facebook group this exact question. The Meguiar's rep said using HCLW over 3-in-1 is perfectly fine. Longevity would be affected a bit.




2) For maintenance I have always used Ultimate Quick Detailer and Ultimate Quik Wax. If I were to switch to having my LSP be Hybrid Ceramic, would I still use the UQD and UQW, or would I want to switch to Ceramic Detailer?



You can still use those two products. It is going to be personal preference. Or you can interchange them every so often.




3) For maintenance, do you use both the Hybrid Ceramic Detailer and Hybrid Ceramic Wax sprays like you do UQD and UQW, or just one of the 2?



I posted this video before in another thread. Pretty much covers this question.

I picked up a bottle of this. From my initial impression the application is really nice and the wipe off is easy. If one has experience wiping off ultimate wax then this is just as easy. It is slick and it is just a hint behind ULW. Also in terms of paint darkening ULW does more. Review pending.

Used this product for the first time last night. Brand new Honda Accord that was fresh off the truck at the dealer. Never washed before I washed it last night, I've never felt or seen paint like this. Product went on and came back off with ease. Just curious how durability will be but its hard to know since I use a QW when drying. I tried to keep it off the plastic/rubber since I couldnt find on the bottle where it said if its ok for such surfaces. It does say its ok for plastic but I took that to mean head lights n such.

I've never had good luck with ultimate wax, always smeared and made dark splotches on the paint. Ill have to try this new ceramic wax on a vehicle that isnt pristine to see how it performs on everyday paint.

not sure if this was asked but i went through the pages and didnt see it.

So im about to finish my full detail:
i clayed, Ultimate compound, ultimate polish and applied blackfire sealant. i did not apply my Ultimate Liquid Wax yet and was wondering :

Can I applied the Ultimate Liquid Wax and then the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax? Is the Ultimate Liquid Wax not needed or with the combination of both add to the protection of the vehicle?


My process always been Clay, Ultimate Compound, Ultimate Polish and finish it off with Ultimate Liquid Wax. Do it maybe 2-3 times a year with weekly washes. I noticed this new ceramic technology and seeing if i want to try it out.

Ultimate Wax is actually a sealant so you don't need to use it if you already applied blackfire. You can use the hybrid ceramic liquid wax as a stand alone.

You would be fine with just M27. From my testing it leaves a better gloss and darkening effect compared to HCLW. Similar to the look of UW.

So i always for my paint correction be : clay, ultimate compound, utimate polish, blackfire sealant ( let that sit for 24hrs before buffing) and ultimate wax.
I stumbled onto the ceramic wax as i was surfing the web on my day off (FDNY EMT/Medic) in quarantine! (shout out to all CFRs and healthcare workers fighting this!)

I decided to layer the ceramic wax over the liquid wax as i had a long weekend.

I would like to start using Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax (HCLW) as my main wax, but I have a (half-full) gallon of D115 that I usually use in between car washes as a waterless wash. Reading through the M27 discussion it appears that using D115 may interfere with HCLW's performance because D115 includes a wax. I have two questions:

1) Can I still use D115 as a waterless wash without interfering with HCLW?

2) If not, is diluted M799 the best thing to use as a waterless wash/wax? Is there a best ratio?

Thanks!!

I am very impressed with the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax. I have been using Ultimate Liquid Wax for about the last ten years and loved it. Then when the Hybrid Ceramic Spray Wax came out, I tried that and loved it. I preferred it over the Ultimate Liquid Wax. And now I prefer the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax over the Ceramic Spray Wax.

In terms of application, you can't see the product when you are applying it to the paint but that is not a big deal to me. When comparing it to Ultimate Liquid Wax, ULW goes across the paint like butter and is very easy to spread. The Ceramic Liquid Wax doesn't spread across the paint as easy as ULW but it is still easy to spread. And wiping it off from the paint is no problem.

I was very impressed with the shine of the Ceramic Liquid Wax. I was trying to think of the best way to describe it and I think that word is reflection. It's like the paint becomes a mirror and it looks great. The look is better than ULW in my opinion, some people have said ULW would produce a better look but I don't think so. I took a picture of my car after I applied the Ceramic Liquid Wax but it did not capture how it looked in person.

I applied it a month ago so I am not sure about the durability yet. I usually wash my car about once every two months. I do have birds poop on my car frequently and I have used a hose to rinse it and the poop came off right away. It came off easier compared to ULW and the Ceramic Spray.

The Ceramic Liquid Wax is now my go to product for protection. The paint still looks great after a month, up close you can see the dirt but if you are ten feet or more away, the car almost looks like it was just waxed/coated. Also, I am looking forward to trying the Ceramic Sealant next.

How does this compare to Ultimate Fast Finish, in terms of durability and ease of use?

Not sure of your schedule. There is an online seminar this week on the Ceramic Products with Nick and Markus.
It would be morning time in Sydney and you would need to adjust for the date line change.

Thanks so much for the heads up!

That's 9am Thursday here and I won't be able to watch it live - but I'll come back to it! :xyxthumbs

I know using both products would get me the best result, but if I were to use only one product, what would get me the best protection?

Applying "Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax G200416" with DA action polisher about once every 3 months

OR

Applying "Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax "G190526" by jusy spraying after washing and rinsing and before drying about 8 times every 3 months?

Yes absolutely the intention. Main source of protection would be new Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax, perfect maintenance products would be existing Hybrid Ceramic Wax (Spray) and the new Hybrid Ceramic Detailer.

Can I use ultimate fast finish as main source of protection and Hybrid Ceramic Wax (Spray) as maintenance? Or is ultimate fast finish also considered a maintenance product instead of main source of protection?

Is it best to use your normal wax first and than apply hybrid ceramic liquid wax on top of it? Also is there any benefit letting the hybrid ceramic liquid wax dry for more than 3-5min like the directions say? Does HCLW have to be cured for 24hrs before exposing it to rain?

Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax is a step above in all protection characteristics compared to our spray Hybrid Ceramic Wax. Would recommend going with liquid in the situation you have presented above.

Yes you can, Ultimate Fast Finish is considered a main source of protection. Although personally if I am going to go with our Hybrid Ceramic Products, I would stick with them, i.e. Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax, Hybrid Ceramic Spray Wax, Hybrid Ceramic Detailer.

You can apply a normal wax first, and then Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax, but best results would be to use it on it's own. No benefit in allowing it to dry for more than 3 - 5 minutes. Yes, 24 Hour Cure Time.

I'm so impressed with the Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax. I used it for the first time two weeks ago and today I rinsed my car off and the dirt came right off and my car looks like it was just washed. Also, the water flew right off the paint similar to what I have seen in videos with cars that have a ceramic coating.

The ability of these products to help keep the vehicle cleaner as well as make cleaning/washing easier is impressive, agreed. Thanks for sharing.

Any advantages of applying a 2nd layer after curing for 24hrs?

This is my new favorite Meguiars product. The results are second to none in my opinion.

or as a top coat over traditional waxes & sealants, too!

SO does this go over NXT to add to its durability and filling ability?

Just my perception but it seems to protect the car from itself too... I swear every bit of the second coat wiped right off. Not scientific, again, just seemed to be gone.

You can do that but for best performance would recommend using on it's own.

Can you use Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax on Gel Coat?

Thank you,....marc

Yep, this stuff is nice.

It allows me to offer something substantial with ceramic for people not wanting to pay for the traditional ceramic coating.

Very slick, love the water behavior. The application was a little more work than something like Ultimate Liquid Wax, but wipe off was a breeze.

Plus it smells GREAT! It reminds me of the polish wax I offered at the tunnel wash I owned back in 2014.

Hi Marc,

Yes, you can, but you end up having to use a bit more product than normal. Also, it's important the gel coat is in great shape with no oxidation.

On a new car I washed it with Gold Class wash, then used Deep Crystal polish no 2 (to get rid of water spots left by the dealer’s detailer), then Deep Crystal Wetlook polish and wax, then Hybrid Ceramic Liquid Wax. Love the fact that I don’t have to avoid the plastic and rubber with the HCLW!

I’ve watched all the videos and read the forum but still don’t know: After waiting 24 hrs do I use the Hybrid Ceramic Wax (blue bottle) or do I wait for 4 weeks when I wash it next?

Well, its not quite that extreme.

If you wash once a week, or two weeks, etc, then just use the blue bottle the next time you wash.

Both? :heelclick1.gif

Seriously, I’ve done either and both. I really like HCW and I haven’t yet found a “wrong” way to use it (not that I’m trying to, but, you know, stuff happens ;) )

... or you could use Hybrid Ceramic Detailer after your 24 hour window (or sooner ;) ). green bottle) That’s a great product too.

But if your goal is to minimize product use (waste?), yeah, waiting until your next wash is fine.

Enjoy!

Thanks Murr1525 and Ken,
I’ll leave it a week then.
Haven’t got the CW detailer and since it’s a 70km round trip to the shops that option isn’t going to fly.
It’s garaged but, the garage is open at the back to under the house and wind swirls around bringing a tiny bit of pollen etc. to sit on the car but it’s still looking almost pristine. They are resurfacing the road to town though so one trip in will ruin it.

So here’s my process I’m thinking about...got a 2010 Camaro
1. Gold class shampoo and conditioner
2. Ceramic clay kit
3. Ultimate compound
4. Ultimate polish
5. Liquid ceramic wax


And hitting the car with the ceramic spray wax once a week with the wash

Pretty much...

The Ult Compound weighs be a needed... You also may want to add an iron /tar remover spray...
