    Re: Topping NXT

    My question is the opposite to this topic:

    What wax is better top top with NXT?

    For example, apply Gold Class Wax, then apply NXT Gen 2.0.

    Also, for the record here is where I found information on layering: http://www.meguiars.com/faq/index.cf...ection=_13#_13

    I've done well over a ton of reading into both the forum and as much of the website as I can, so much information to absorb. According to the FAQ, Gold Class wax is considered a Polish/Wax, and NXT gen a Sealant, therefor it makes sense in my head that NXT would go great on top of Gold Class? ( product info from http://www.meguiars.com/faq/index.cf...ection=_53#_53 where it lists Gold Class as a Polish/Wax)

    Hope this doesn't confuse you but both Gold Class and NXT are in the category of polish/wax, that is they both add lots of gloss plus protection.

    • Gold Class contains a blend of natural ingredients and synthetic ingredients as such it's not considered a paint sealant.
    • NXT contains only synthetic ingredients so it's considered a paint sealant.

    It's all explained in this thread,

    Is it a wax? Or a paint sealant?


    Just to note, Meguiar's doesn't recommend toping one type of finishing wax with another type of finishing wax. I wrote this article because I knew people would do this outside of the no recommendation on the procedure and wanted people to think about what they were doing and to TEST their process to a small area first to make sure they were getting the results they were looking for.

    This is all explained in the first message of this thread.

    Re: Topping NXT

    Currently I've got over 5 tabs open on threads I still haven't read that were linked to. I'm sure I've already read through more than 10 with hours after hours of materiel. I hate being the guy to ask a question that was answered already, or I hate being the one asking for help when there's plenty of self-help options available and I can do it myself.

    But true you're right, that was explained. I just thought I'd throw it out there and I'm glad I did because you clarified my misconception on the definition of each product being a polish/wax/sealant.

    I really don't want to bring up an old argument from the NXT 1.0 days but what is the official Meguiar's stance on whether or not there are cleaners (minor or otherwise) in NXT 2.0 sealant? If the NXT does contain cleaners does that not automatically make it a "base layer" product in that if it's layered on top of something else it will wholly or partially remove it?

    As previously stated or implied, both NXT and Gold Class have polishing abrasive properties. Topping them over one another would ultimately remove the previous layer.

    I find that the Yellow Wax is the best for topping. Though after claying, polishing, and then applying NXT, I would be too exhausted with the final layer of Yellow Wax. That's what a few individuals on the other automotive forums are doing. They are pretty happy with the result of using yellow wax over NXT2.0.

    Using NXT or gold class prior to using Yellow Wax would ultimately remove even more fine scratces that couldn't be removed with, say, ScratchX 2.0 or Ultimate Compound.

    Re: Topping NXT

    I want to apply M80 via G110 followed by M07 topped with 2 coats of NXT 2.0. Do you guys think the two coats of glaze are overkill or does that combination sound appropriate? In theory, it sounded like a combo that would produce a nice shine and unbelievable protection. It's for my meticulously detailed daily driver.

    You may or may not notice a difference with M07 since M80 has a lot of polishing oils in it.

    After M80 try M07 in a test spot and see if you can tell the difference.

    if not then just follow up with 2 coats of NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0
