Shines as it cleans!Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate #901 Is a highly concentrated blend of mild surfactants and cleaners that actually enhance the shine of painted vehicles each time it is used. Does not contain acids or alkali and will not remove durable polishes. If you?re looking for a pH-balanced car shampoo that preserves wax and produces mountains of suds, you?re looking for Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate #901. This shampoo is gentle on your vehicle with plenty of lubricants and suds to protect your paint while you wash. Chemically, Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate is made up of mild surfactants, which are the safest way to clean. They surround and suspend foreign particles so they easily rinse away. Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate is non-alkaline and non-acidic so it will not remove wax or dry out the paint. When you rinse your vehicle after using Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate, it does not streak or spot the paint. The special formula encourages a sheeting effect to leave the vehicle mostly dry. Use a soft Cobra Guzzler Waffle Weave Microfiber Towel to remove any remaining water. Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate leaves the paint shiny and clean, like it was just waxed. Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate #901 is an excellent value. Use only 1 ounce per 3 gallons of water to create a bucket of cherry-scented suds. (Use a stronger concentration to remove oil and tar on heavily soiled vehicles.) Duragloss 901 can be used in foam guns and all professional car wash equipment. Duragloss Car Wash Concentrate has it all: value, performance, a pleasant scent, lots of foam, and a safe, pH balanced formula. And it shines as it cleans!16 oz.

Souverän™ Wax is Brilliant on Red -  Awesome on Black!It's The Wax for Perfectionists!Pinnacle Souverän™ Carnauba Paste Wax sets the standard in auto surface enhancement. For decades, Souverän™ Wax has been trusted to protect and enhance some of the world's most impressive show cars and collectibles. Today, Souverän™ still reigns as the ultimate show car wax.Each 8 oz. jar contains approximately 30 applications, each packed with genuine carnauba wax. A single jar will give your vehicle years of incredible shine and protection. Pinnacle Souverän™ Wax is the most cost effective car wax on the market!We've created this wax for perfectionists like you. Pinnacle Souverän™ Wax produces a shine that is more than just bright. Our finest car wax is bursting with a special blend of Brazilian Ivory Carnauba and natural oils to give the paint tremendous depth and richness. It creates a liquid and 3-dimensional appearance on the paint. Souverän™ Wax enhances all colors but is stunning on dark colored cars. Reds radiate energy. Blacks take on the shimmer of an infinitely deep pool. Ralph Lauren's 1930 Mercedes Benz SSK "Count Trossi" Winner, Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Best of Show Prepared and shown with Pinnacle Souverän™ Wax.   The prime ingredient in Pinnacle Souverän™ Wax is Brazilian Ivory Carnauba. Carnauba wax is world-renown for its crystal clarity, its protective properties and its uncanny shimmer. The wax is produced by a specific tree that grows in the hot, wet valleys of Northern Brazil. The leaves secrete the wax in order to protect themselves from the tropical sun and to shed rainwater, which falls to the tree?s roots. Carnauba wax has the distinction of being the hardest natural wax and it has the highest melting point of any natural wax. No other natural wax is as sought after as No. 1 yellow carnauba wax, deemed the purest and highest quality by Brazil?s government inspectors. No. 1 yellow carnauba wax is the only wax found in Pinnacle Souverän™ Carnauba Car Wax.We took the highest grade yellow carnauba wax available and refined it once more to make an ivory- colored wax of unbelievable clarity and purity. Even in its natural state, carnauba provides excellent UV protection, is heat resistant, and yet is breathable to allow the leaves from which it came to receive oxygen. Pinnacle?s ivory carnauba retains all those characteristics but allows for a perfectly clear, rich finish when applied to automotive paint. Key Features : Butter-like consistency applies easily Incredible depth and mirror-like reflection Can be layered Haze and streak resistant No chalky haze, wipes off wet Lasts up to 90 days The finest wax available for dark paint finishes   We?ve added natural oils to the carnauba in order to ?w

A tropical wax for warm colored vehicles. Dodo Juice Banana Armour Hard Wax breathes new life into warm colored vehicles with a blend of carnauba wax, yellow beeswax and banana oil. Banana Armour Hard Wax dries to a mirror-like, hard shine that repels the elements and looks great doing it.Dodo Juice Banana Armour Hard Wax is made with a high percentage of carnauba to give it that hard, glassy finish. It only takes a little of this wax to shine and protect your entire vehicle. Expect fantastic water beading and great durability. Use Dodo Juice Banana Armour Hard Wax on any warm colored vehicle to bring out the subtle hues and highlights. Dodo Juice Banana Armour Hard Wax glows on reds, yellows, oranges, and warm metallics. Beautiful and functional, Dodo Juice Banana Armour Wax offers excellent protection to automotive paint. Dodo?s warm car wax repels UV rays, rain, and dirt.     Straight from the Dodo?s mouth: We like bananas, because they probably grow on Mauritius. And let?s face it, dodos would have lasted a bit longer if they could have unzipped them with their beaks, then enjoyed them with rum and brown sugar on a barbecue. Therefore, in tribute to the humble banana, we have named our hard wax for warm coloured cars ?banana armour?. It also sounds like an 80s girl band, but that?s only if you?re old enough to remember. Following on with the warm theme, we have used some Yellow Beeswax in this recipe and, er, made it yellow and bananary. Bananary isn?t a word, by the way. I just made it up. Use it on all warm coloured cars, including metallics and pearlescents. Yellows, oranges, reds, that kind of thing.       Use a soft foam or microfiber applicator, or your bare hands, to apply Dodo Juice Banana Armour Wax. A very thin, even coat should be applied. Then wait 5-10 minutes before buffing.   Application: As with any car wax, we?ve found that the best results are obtained on a clean, smooth paint finish. Use a prewax cleaner, like Dodo Juice Lime Prime Pre-Wax Cleanser, to remove old layers of wax and improve the paint?s texture. Then apply a layer of Dodo Juice Purple Haze Soft Wax using a soft foam applicator or with your bare hands. Allow it to cure for 5-10 minutes. Since the cure time is relatively short, we found it easiest to work in sections. Buff off the wax with a soft Cobra Deluxe Jr. Microfiber Towel. Apply another coat after 24 hours if desired.   8 oz.
