To Carnauba, or
not to carnauba, you decide:
is a vegetable wax obtained from the leaves of a Brazilian palm tree called the
“Tree of Life” (Copernica Cerifera). Pure Carnauba, in its natural state,
is harder than concrete. Professional Chemical Guys products are
engineered to not separate. The unique emulsification of quality raw chemicals
allows our products to retain integrity and always deliver the top quality
professional results our customers are accustomed to. Chemical Guys unique

giving it a nature derived ability to retain oil delivering excellent gloss and
Pure # 1 (Number One Grade)
Carnauba varies in color or shade from a very pale yellow to an almost white,
and some are even a yellowish (brown). Though the quality of a pure #1 Carnauba
does not differ greatly when comparing colors, scientist have found that Grade A
carnauba is the purest. Because Chemical Guys uses carnauba for a large majority
of products, only Grade A Brazilian carnauba is used to assure top quality
product is used behind the scenes to deliver premium professional results in the
final product. Paint experts agree that Brazilian Carnauba is the wax of choice
for the best automotive finishes.
Let’s reduce the confusion about how carnauba affects
Carnauba is a natural plant derived or produced by-product, it has no cleaning
ability, hence used by itself and not in conjunction with other chemicals it
will not clean, attack, damage or cause any reaction with a painted surface.
Carnauba merely coats and provides a very hard barrier over your car's surface
to protect against airborne contaminants such as acid rain, bugs, tar, road
grime, salt, and bird droppings. Carnauba also dramatically reduces paint
oxidation by diffusing (refracting) UV and infrared radiation from the sun. Many
Extreme Top-Coat Sealant are also enriched with extra added UV Blocking
agents that protect far longer then a wax and break down under much higher heat
So what is wax?
Defined wax is: the actual substance, as in carnauba wax, beeswax or
paraffin, is an organic material which is solid at room temperature, melts at a
fairly low point and is not a polymer.
Waxes range of properties:
- Surface Shine and Reflective ability
- Melting point for Carnauba (about 160 to 180 degrees
- Water repellence
- Protection-Resistance to breakdown
The finishing coat of wax
on a painted surface serves two basic purposes:
1) Protection -- Waxes serve as barrier offering protection against:
water spots, acid rain, contaminates and most importantly the damaging effects
of the sun. Wax coats the paint and protects it so that the elements of
contamination attack the wax and not the paint surface. Wax prevents acid rain,
vehicle exhaust and commercial industrial fallout from corroding the paint's
surface. Wax achieves these duties by improving mar and offering a slip
resistance that prevents dirt and dust from abrading the paint surface. Most
oxidation occurs then oxygen accompanied by water, acid rain or humidity
penetrate through micro tiny wholes in your paints surface and allow oxidation
to occur. Many new and newly painted cars have some micro tiny wholes in the
paint, and often times when you use a clay bar, it lifts and pulls oxidation out
of the paint and leaves a micro tiny whole where the oxidation was before. These
wholes need to be filled and wax offers a great surface sealant for these
wholes. For added surface protection it is recommended that a coat of sealant
is applied over the wax or even before the wax. Though some sealants like
magic seal are wax based, others like
Extreme Top-Coat Sealant are reactive silicone based sealants that are
enriched with carnauba to offer superior protection coupled with the shine of
2) Shine -- Waxes help improve the reflection of light off the car,
making the finish look brighter, smoother and more attractive.
HISTORY ABOUT PASTE WAX.
what detailers and professionals have grown to admire about a multidimensional
deep shine or car wax. Is owed to the addition of Brazilian #1 to many and most
car wax products. Still today over 50 yrs after the introduction of Carnauba
into the car detailing industry, pure carnauba wax is still the professionals
choice product for rendering the deepest paint shine available. Though
synthetic waxes and paint sealants have become prevalent in the car care
industry over the last several years, very few compare with the easy layered
amazing shine and strength of durability of a pure carnauba paste wax.
