    Re: Which Wax gives you the best Gloss and Reflection?

    Both NXT and Gold Class have their own look and both have appealing attributes.

    But, to clarify some info above:

    Gold Class has mostly synthetic ingredients with some natural components, like carnauba.

    NXT contains no abrasives.

    Hope his helps.

    How do you measure, "highest percentage of gloss increase"? Seems pretty subjective to me, no?
    Buds test was done in a lab by professional chemist, with professional equipment.

    Re: Which Wax gives you the best Gloss and Reflection?

    In answer to 3Fitty and Larry A - YES, the tests were conducted by a laboratory, certified chemists, using scientific equipment. Otherwise what would be the point of a comparative test.

    As far as the measuring reflective shine before and after application and after 12 washings (simulating once a month washing) this was done by a Glossometer. This is a scientific "reflective gloss measuring instrument" used by automotive paint companies; auto manufacturers; detail chemical companies; more sophisticated detail businesses among others to measure "quite accurately" the reflective shine off a painted surface in this case.

    For example, General Motors has a "reflective gloss standard" for vehicles coming off their assembly line. "They must measure a reflective gloss of 79 to pass their acceptance test."

    The best Glossometer I am personally aware of is made in Germany and sells for about $2500.

    If you www.google.com "Glossometer" you can read all about them and their accuracy in measuring reflective gloss.

    Me too on the Mike Phillips response. I think 21 topped by NXT paste is wonderful on a black car. Shines like obsidian!

    best Gloss+Reflection from NXT20 Paste or Liquid (same), which is really just the hand-application (consumer) version of #21.
