Your Guide To Buying a Carnauba Wax

By Yehudah Posnick

    Car wax can come in liquid or paste form. Carnauba wax is a primary ingredient in some car waxes, as well as being a good stand-alone product for waxing your car. Carnauba wax is produced from the dried leaves of the Brazilian palm tree of the same name. The wax has a distinctive hardness and high melting point--higher than almost any other natural wax. Because of these qualities, Carnauba wax produces a long-lasting, heat-resistant glossy finish when employed as a car wax. You can get liquid and paste car waxes that contain Carnauba wax, but you can also find products that are 100% pure Carnauba wax.

    We've put together this guide to help you select the Carnauba wax that answers to your needs. It'll help you:

    • Choose the right type of Carnauba wax,

    • See useful tips about that type of Carnauba wax,    

    • Read reviews of different brands of Carnauba wax, and what customers are saying,

    • Select the right brand of Carnauba wax, and

    • Compare prices and find the best deals.

    • 100% Carnauba wax: Pro Yellow Paste Wax contains pure Carnauba wax. This gives a clear and protective shine.

    • Carnauba wax compounds: Pure Carnauba wax is typically rather hard, so it is mixed with other waxes (beeswax, carrier oils) to be more manageable. There are both liquid and paste car waxes that contain Carnauba wax as an ingredient. P21S Carnauba wax is a mixture of Carnauba wax and beeswax. Adam's BW2-16 Car Wax fortifies the Carnauba wax with chemical polymers.

    Here are a few of the points that reviewers make when giving feedback on their car wax purchases:

    • Don’t apply on certain surfaces: Carnauba wax shouldn’t be applied to plastic trim on the car. It will leave a white layer that will hard to remove. It also shouldn’t be applied to vinyl, rubber, or non-painted surfaces.

    • Easy application: Many products make the claim of giving good results with less effort. The Green Clean Automotive - Quick Wax Superior is a spray-on application: you spray the product on, and work it in with a buffer. It also advertises that it is free of harsh solvents,alcohol and VOCs. This ensures that it will not damage or strip the paint from the car. Also, people applied the Meguiar's G7014J Gold Class Carnauba Plus wax to a car whose paint job was over 20 years old, with excellent results.

    • Method of application:

    1. Prepare the surface by first washing the car using a conditioning shampoo, and dry it. Ideally, you should apply a gloss-enhancing paintwork cleaner.

    2. Apply wax with an applicator pad, spreading a thin, even coat. Some car waxes come with an enclosed applicator to apply the wax. Do not apply wax in hot sun, or to hot surfaces.

    3. Buff with a microfiber towel or Terry cloth.

    • Application with a cloth or with a drill-mounted applicator: There is a ball-shaped applicator that you attach to a drill. Set the drill at 300-400 rpm, put some car wax on the applicator, and slowly apply the wax to the car’s surface. This covers a large area much more quickly than applying with a cloth. Some people use an orbital polisher.

    • Other uses: Carnauba wax can be used for other things besides your car. Pro Carnauba wax can be applied to boats, wood floors, airplanes, RVs, oak bar rails, and painted surfaces.
