Metallic PolishWax has been a staple for many of our detailers. It's an easy polish and wax in one that offers outstanding depth, gloss and durability for a one-step. But the name has always caused confusion. Is it a metal polish? Is it only for metallic paint? :shead: So we decided that we had to simplify it and drop the name "Metallic". Same product just shortening the name. Why is it even called Metallic PolishWax? Well, it started in the early 80s when metallic paint was introduced. It became an alternative to the harder single stage lacquer paints of that day. Metallic paint was a two stage process that involved a softer clear coat on the top to protect the metallic flakes in the pigmented coat. Because Paint Polish (green can called Lack Politur in Germany) was formulated for the harder lacquers, we needed a polish that was gentler on the new softer clear coats going on metallic paints. Hence, Metallic Polish was born. Metallic Polish was eventually enhanced with carnauba and polymer waxes in the early 2000s changing the name to Metallic PolishWax. Of course today both Paint Polish and Metallic PolishWax are both safe on clear coats (single stage is virtually non-existant today). With that disparity no longer existing, the name Metallic really doesn't serve a purpose. You'll see the name on the 500 ml/ 16.9 oz make its way on to the shelves in the coming months (if you haven't already seen it) and eventually the dropping of 'Metallic' will take effect on the 1 liter and 5 liter. Here's the new label If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
