    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    First of all, HCW works awesome!!! Prepped the car, did the base coat, and several weeks later washed it and spray and rinsed a second coat then dried the car with a leaf blower. The beading increased significantly after that wash.

    I plan to use a rinseless method with ONR for subsequent washes. I plan to use HCW as the drying agent while the panel is still wet with ONR. Any issues with this method? Would I need to wash my drying towel after every use because of the sio2 in the HCW?

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    How about mixing a bottle maybe 20 parts water and 1 part HCW and spraying it on liberally wiping off, then following with a separate microfiber towel soaked with water to do the rinse? Then finish with a drying microfiber towel. I like to do a waterless wash so, this is how I would like to use it if you all/Meguiars think this will do just as well as the bottle directions. So, do a waterless wash around my car. Then follow with the just described method for the HCW. There is a video on YouTube from the car care nut that did this. Except I don’t think he did a rinse towel. Has anybody tried this? How do you think this will work? Or how did it work for you? Thanks!

    Regarding the panel wet with ONR, and spraying HCW onto a panel wet with ONR, it is tough to say whether or not the cleaners in the ONR will affect the performance of HCW. My gut says I don't think it will be that big of deal. We would recommend applying it in the "foundation layer" / drying aid style like Wildpanda mentioned if you wanted to try it out. Other alternative would be to perform your ONR wash, dry the panel, spray plain water on panel, then spray HCW, then dry, but that would be a lot of extra work IMO.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Hi,

    I used Hybrid Ceramic Wax for the first time today, and followed the instructions for an initial application, sprayed the Ceramic Wax on after the wash and rinse, and then proceeded to dry with my usual microfibre waffle cloth. I then noticed that the wax was drying with a residue (as if I'd applied a regular wax coat).
    I wasn't expecting this and so I buffed off with clean microfibre cloths (as if polishing a wax coat).
    Is this normal?
    (It’s just that the instructions didn't mention this step.)

    Sorry to hear about the trouble Womble. You should not experience any residue/streaks applying either the foundation layer style or wax as you rinse. I would suggest, if you do the foundation layer style again, to spray less, and do not spray the entire vehicle at once. Just spray and dry one panel at a time. You can do the same for the wax as your rinse style also if needed, spray one panel, then high pressure rinse panel, move on to next.

    Hope this helps. Feel free to post further questions.

    Well, the residue buffed off like a regular wax in any case, and I cant see any streaking (its a new car with metallic red paint). So I can only assume the foundation layer is applied.
    On the next wash I'll use less product as you say, and hopefully this time it'll rinse off properly.

    How would this work on wheels to reduce brake dust buildup?

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Thx...


    -I’ll probably try diluting the HCW 20:1
    - then while the panel is wet with the ONR I’ll spray the diluted HCW at 1 spray per panel, 1 panel at a time
    - then use a waffle weave to spread and dry the ONR
    - follow up with a plush drying towel


    That way at the end of the wash I can just dump the waffle weave in a bucket of water or remaining ONR bucket, squeeze it all out, and hang it to dry for the next wash.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    I used Hybrid Ceramic Wax for the first time today and was very impressed. I usually wash my car once every 2-3 months and apply ULW afterwards. With the Hybrid Ceramic Wax, after I washed my car with Meguiars Shampoo Plus and rinsed the car, I sprayed each panel 2 or 3 times and then wiped it with a microfiber towel. Afterwards, I decided to do another layer so I rinsed the car and then sprayed 3 or 4 times on each panel. Then I rinsed the car and dried it with a microfiber towel. Also, I did not do the whole car at once, I did 2 or 3 panels at a time.

    When I rinsed the car after the first application, it beaded very nicely, I could tell there was a nice layer of protection. The shine is great as well. So now the true test will be the durability and one way for that will be to see how bird droppings do against it since birds always sh#t on my car where I park for work. I usually rinse the bird droppings off with a hose later that day and if that doesn’t get it off then I will use Ultimate Wash & Wax Anywhere.

    I do have a couple of questions for the Ceramic Wax.

    1) Does it stain trim?
    2) Is it okay to get it on my hands? When I wipe it with a towel and then turn the towel over, I got some on my hands.
    3) Is Ceramic Wax or ULW have more durability?

    Nice initial review. Thanks for sharing.

    1 - HCW will not stain trim, provided you don't allow it to dry or something.
    2 - Yes, it is recommended to wash your hands after use.
    3 - Technically Hybrid Ceramic Wax has more durability. We recommend for best results to use Hybrid Ceramic Wax in addition to your favorite liquid or paste wax/sealant, like Ultimate Liquid Wax. HCW will not give the gloss that a Ultimate Liquid Wax can. It mainly focuses on protection. Although, if one would like, they can use HCW as their main source of protection, but again, for best results, we recommend using it in addition to standard liquid/paste base coat.
