    Re: How to use Meguiar's NEW Hybrid Ceramic Wax!

    Not sure where to post my question ...
    I’ve got a restomod I’ll be painting with acrylic lacquer ..
    Looks to me once I’m done with any buffing this hybrid ceramic is the only finish I need?
    What kind of cure time should I allow for the fresh paint?

    Hi Russtache,

    If you would like, you are welcome to start a new thread, within one of the forums at this below link:

    https://meguiarsonline.com/forums/forum.php

    In fact it would be a bit better to start a new thread, in another forum, instead of within this thread, in case you would like to discuss other topics around your project.

    Re: How to use Meguiar's NEW Hybrid Ceramic Wax!

    After countless hours of reading various posts and watching a number of videos, I think I’ve come up with a game plan. First some background info, I will be applying these coatings on a ten month old C7 Corvette, Blade Silver in color.
    My plan is as follows, use Meguiar’s Ultimate Liquid Wax as a foundation, let it cure for approx 1 week and then apply Meguiar’s Hybrid Ceramic Wax (HCW) as a top coat. As for applying the HCW, spray lightly onto a wet panel and spread evenly by applying HCW to a wet wax applicator pad (hopefully this will reduce the possibility of streaking) and then dry with a microfiber towel.
    Following the initial HCW application, wet the car again with water, spray with HCW, rinse off using a heavy ‘fan’ spray of water and dry.
    Would be interested in hearing your comments.

    Hi Jim,

    Sounds good except for wet microfiber applicator pad. I mean you can try that, but a microfiber towel is fine.

    Re: How to use Meguiar's NEW Hybrid Ceramic Wax!

    Hey, I have a similar question about layering. A prior owner had my Spyder repainted and the color (dark metallic green), while beautiful, seems especially vulnerable to waterspots and stains. I assume this is just the curse of a less-than-factory aftermarket paint job but have done all I can to give it as much care and protection as possible. Right now I usually apply your competition (sorry) - CG Black Light sealer with Big White's hi-temp paste wax on top. That helps a lot with the waterspotting but doesn't cure it. I've picked up a bottle of your Hybrid Ceramic to try in hopes of getting better water resistance, but don't know where to put it in the layering. Does it go on top of the paste wax or does the wax go on top of it? What's your advice on the order of "stacking" these products? I realize you can't speak to the qualities of the stuff that isn't yours, but I'd be equally curious to try something like Meg's Ultimate Liquid Wax instead, to see how it compares.

    Hybrid Ceramic Wax does utilize a Sio2/Ceramic base, which does offer higher levels of overall protection, compared to a carnauba/synthetic polymer based wax/protectant. Whether or not you are going to notice a difference in Hybrid Ceramic Wax's ability to prevent against water spots is tough to say. While we can promise you will most definitely see increase contact angle water beading & great durability, in addition, Hybrid Ceramic Wax does have the ability to layer, i.e., you should notice an increase in water beading performance after a few applications, scratch/stain resistance is one of those factors where it is going to be minimal.

    Thanks for the info! What would you recommend for best waterspotting & stain protection?

    Re: How to use Meguiar's NEW Hybrid Ceramic Wax!

    Start from 6:36 of the follow video, man from Meguiar said applying the "standard application" two times would maximum the power of this product:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk-OwkIlYLs
    Does he mean doing the "Application Method #1 - INITIAL APPLICATION / FOUNDATION LAYER" twice? Basically he means just keep doing the Method #1 but forget method #2 would always give the best result even it is less convenient?

    What he is saying if you want to get maximum performance right away, is to perform foundation layer first (wax as your dry), then after drying, perform the standard "wax as your rinse" application. By taking this extra step, you can get an increase in performance right away. Other option is, wait until next time vehicle is washed, to perform the wax as you rinse application.
