Waxing with waxes, polymers or paint sealants provide an extra level of paint protection while yielding a high gloss finish.Waxing provides a protective barrier between the paint surface and the environment. It also makes your car look better by allowing the surface to reflect more light resulting in a high gloss finish. Waxing is the final step, also known as LSP (last step process) for your paint surface. There are many different types of waxes ranging from carnauba waxes, to synthetic sealants, to highly advanced hydrophobic polymers. Determining which of these to use is a matter of personal preference.
