    I can do the UFF aswell as stand alone, so which would be best? And what route should i take?

    The long road or the shorter one.
    The easiest answer is there is no best. It is all relative to each ones environment. The environment is going to play a large factor on durability. The benefit to ceramic wax is that it can be applied during the wash process at any given time.

    I can not tell you which route to take other than to give it a try and see how it compares to your usual method.

    I'm gonna give it shot (actually was gonna anyway-just 'because') when it becomes available locally. If nothing else, I'm sure it will help save wheels during the winter (expletive delete) we go thru.

    Happy New Year!

    Let us know how it works out when you get your hands on it.

    Happy New Year to you as well.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Are users finding out that pressure washing activates HCW better than a strong hose stream? The videos popping up on YouTube are strange as some are showing very little beading at all while others are reporting great beading. Can anyone that has used HCW let us know the best way to apply to get the most protection/beading? I was hoping for a straight spray on rinse off product but everywhere I’m seeing that a base needs to be laid down to get the most out of HCW. With a product like this I want it to save me time not increase it.

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Found this in a comment section:


    Markus Kleis, Meguiar's Professional Product Manager here, thought I would comment and add a little clarity for the folks who love to know the intricate details about products. First, thanks to Brian from @apex detail for taking the time to put this video together - very cool! Since this product is VERY new (only been available for a few weeks), and is very unique compared to not only the rest of our lineup or products, but also unique compared to other "similarly applied" products, I thought it would be good to add a few tidbits of background info. For one, although we call the product "Hybrid Ceramic Wax," this product is actually a sealant infused with an extremely high level of sio2-based material. We call it a "hybrid wax" because in the consumer market "wax" resonates with more people, but we used "hybrid" to clarify that it is a blend and not to be compared with a traditionally applied ceramic coating. Speaking of the application method, I would like to add that if you look closely at the rear label it actually calls for a "wax as you dry" application method for the first use to establish a solid base coat, and then the "spray on, rinse off" method can be used for subsequent coats. This product layers exceptionally well, both with itself and above or below other forms or protection, including traditional waxes and sealants (it also acts as a phenomenal topper for ceramic coated surfaces!). Because of the nano-particles, this product greatly prefers either a properly prepped level surface for maximum performance. As for the reason for the rinsing application method, this is actually designed to spray a very thin and even layer of product across the surface. You will find that this product is intentionally designed to spread incredibly easily and efficiently with a strong stream of water. The reason for the suggested "strong stream" is that it does a better job of spreading out a thinner, more even layer of product (but if you use a garden hose you can still make up for the lack of pressure during the drying process as this will also help to spread an even layer of product). Lastly, in terms of durability, I am not sure what methods were used to determine a 2-4 month timeline (maybe using "similar" competitive products?), but in my own testing we have found this product to last a very solid 6+ months on a neglected car that is rarely washed or touched with anything. As always, mileage will vary based on how you apply it, what you apply it on, how you maintain it, etc, but expect 2-6 months very consistently when properly applied. That said, I personally use this as my drying aide every time I wash anything because it is incredibly slick, goes on all surfaces (trim, paint, plastics, rubber, and even glass) and just plain easy to use. Any other questions? Let me know... I will do my best to check back in and answer them. Thanks again for the cool video!

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Since I've seen videos where people will use a spray wax with clay towels, and this needs to be applied to a wet surface with an initial wipe down, could you clay with this and then spray it off in sections?

    The only products we offer which we recommend using for a clay bar lubricant are the following:

    Re: Meguiar's Hybrid Ceramic Wax

    Had a few questions on the HCW.
    1. Does it provide UVA/UVB protection?
    2. Does it build up if used weekly (worst case scenario)?
    3. Do the microfiber towels need to be washed immediately and will they harden up (need to be discarded) if you aren't able to do so right away?

    Unfortunately we have confirmed that it will likely not be available in Canada until 2020.
