I am just wondering if meguiars is going to make a paste version of the new nxt wax. I love using my gold class paste, it like using it alot better than liquid. Does anyone know if their gonig to make nxt in paste?

I'm question that liquid has become a bigger seller with the increased use of pcs to do the work, so thats probably where the focus is at?

Good question, I would like to see a paste version myself.

There is no wax in NXT Tech Wax.

I am sure they could probably make one but, I don't think you would see the same benefit out of a paste version of NXT that you see with carnauba based waxes.

With carnauba waxes solvents are used to soften up the carnauba to arrive at a liquid form. Paste versions just have less of those solvents which leaves the carnauba in a harder form.

The main reason a lot of Meguiar's waxes do not come in paste form is the simple reason of packaging..It's simply more expensive to manufacture paste waxes..i.e. packaging...

I've heard some people say not to apply NXT wax with a PC. Some do, though. What would be the problem applying it with the PC?

I always use my pc works great! I don't think I will ever apply a product by hand ever again!

I think you are just suppose to use a lower speed as not to generate any heat. I think the NXT breaks down or something. I am sure someone else can answer much better!

No problems with NXT and PC. I just ran the PC at 2.5 or 3 went on very easy and wiped of with MF very easy.

I'd leave well enough alone.

NXT tech wax is awesome just the way it is.

I have better results using a PC to apply it then by hand.

I guess my twist on this bizarre topic would be to bring up the topic again of: what exactly IS NXT?

Its been said that NXT:
- is not carnauba based (but keeping in mind carnauba is only one kind of wax)
- is a "synthetic polymer" - as described on the bottle

That being said, is NXT still defined as a "wax" or should it be considered a "sealant"? (does synthetic polymer = sealant?) If its a wax, then I could possibly see a paste version come out. However, if its clearly NOT a wax and is in fact a "sealant", then how could they make a paste version? Unless I'm mistaken, none of the true (ie. pure) sealants out on the market have a paste version, they are all liquid based only, as far as I know. ;)

Hey,

I have had absolutely no problems applying the NXT Tech Wax. I have always applied it with a PC and a W-9006 Finishing Pad. Then remove the residue with a Meg's Ultimate Bonnet over a clean W-8006 Polishing Pad. The results are awesome!!! :)

I would not call it a "WAX" or a "sealant" more like a a protectant.

Although Meguiar's calls it "NXT Tech Wax" it is a synthetic polymer. As such, it provides an artificial barrier by sealing the surface from the elements.
