    Great question, with so many cars using matte finishes nowadays knowing which products are matte safe would really help.

    Re: Matte Paint Safe, Meguiars Products. Please Help?

    I would have to work on this but off the top of my head, we do not recommend any of our liquid or paste waxes to be used on matte/satin paint or matte/satin wraps ALSO we do not recommend the use of traditional compounds, scratch removers, polishes or paint cleaners be used on matte/satin paints or matte/satin wraps.

    We typically recommend our Ultimate Quik Detailer, Ultimate Quik Wax, & Ultimate Wash & Wax for maintenance. They can add a light sheen but will not dramatically & potentially permanently change the look of the matte/satin paint/wraps like traditional liquid/pastes waxes could.

    The below article is older but still useful, all the recommendations within it apply to matte/satin paints:

    We did not design or test it for that use.
