    I've tried Tech Wax twice now on two cars and it is leaving an oily residue. Any ideas?

    You are probably applying it too thick. A little goes a long way! Get your quick detailer, and spray the area. Wipe-off, and then turn the towel over and to give it a final buff. This should help.

    Re: NXT Tech Wax 2.0

    I think I figured it out. It has been pretty cold, so i let it dry overnight and it buffed off pretty well. I was afraid to let it dry too much recalling the old carnuba wax days, but I saw a post on how easily this comes off. Coould probably use less as well. Thanks for your input!

    Re: NXT Tech Wax 2.0

    Vince, as you've discovered, it really comes down to drying time. Just as you were unsure about a long drying time due to previous old school carnauba experiences, so are many others. Because of this people tend to not let NXT dry long enough, and it is very common for people to apply it too heavy. In many case, far too heavy.

    A heavy coat, and cool temperatures and/or high humidity will really prolong the drying time. Removing too soon can sometimes result in some streaking that is most noticeable on darker colors. A very thin coat is all that's needed, really just a couple of ounces to cover a full sized sedan. If you apply the wax and then start cleaning the interior, wheels, tires, etc and then clean up your garage, enough time should have passed for the wax to be sufficiently dry that removal won't be an issue at all.

    Just personal preference, I go liquid. Some say you use a bit more liquid, but I like the fact that you arent rubbing a dirty pad into your wax.

    It has also been mentioned in the past that paste waxes may dry a bit faster in a damp environment.

    Sometimes, I experience this too. So what I do is wait for 12 hours to let the polymers set into their place, then use a quick detailer to remove the oily residue.

    I have also done this to remove excess, however this was in the past when I would apply it too thickly.

    Truth is you only need a very thin coat. If you have ever used M16 and know how to apply it correctly (as in a very thin coat) try the same process with NXT 2.0.

    All in all you'd be get more out of the product by applying 2 thin coats 12 hours apart than wasting the same amount by applying 1 thick coat that won't afford any extra protection and only waste the stuff.

    The best way that I've heard it described is "whisper thin". That helps you visualise how little to apply.

    Re: NXT Tech Wax 2.0

    Do any of the waxes or polishes expire? That is to say, is there a point in time that they either loose there effectiveness or even become bad for auto finishes? I have a bottle of the original NXT which is probably coming into it's 3rd season. Should I chuck it? Time to try 2.0 I think?
