    Meguiar's Matte Finish Care Article Link Inside

    I didn't know what area of the forum to put this in but this is a good article on maintaining a matte finish using Meguiar's products.

    Interesting article. I always thought a light coat of a nonabrasive wax (not RUBBED in) would be OK, I guess not. At least you can use the Ultimate Twins (Detailer/Quik Wax) on them for some protection.

    I think the concern with waxing is that it can impart a shine to surfaces that are supposed to be matte.

    That's why I'm surprised even UQW / UQD are ok for matte.

    Doesn't really concern me though - I like everything shiny!!

    Actually D156 works quite well on a matte finish. My brothers Harley has matte wheels and I used it on them and it didn't alter the appearance of them.

    I agree with davey there. The more shine the better. Although some matte finishes are cool if done right. But I enjoy bringing out that shine too much to have a matte paint job. If I did I'de prob forget I had one and b out there for days trying to shine the thing up compounding the hell outta it! ?

    Re: Meguiar's Matte Finish Care Article Link Inside

    I just had another thought. The articles says:

    ◾Traditional liquid or paste waxes should not be used
    I wonder if PP365 would be ok? It's not really a 'traditional' liquid wax, it has a very water-like consistency and is supposed to add no gloss or shine.

    I'm willing to bet it would be ok, but has anyone tried it on matte finishes?

    Guys,
    What about waxing matte striping? What would be a good product to use?

    Any wax, except a cleaner wax would be fine. So something like UW, PP365 or UFF would be great.

    Just be aware that they may impart a slight shine to the matte striping.

    If that's an issue, some other manufacturers do make matte specific waxes which they claim do not impart any shine.
