Best Car Wax – The Last Coat vs. Car Wax: Is there even a comparison?!

Best Car Wax – The Last Coat vs. Car Wax: Is there even a comparison?!


– How’s it going there,
guys, my name’s Nick. I’m owner and operator of FS Detail, wanted to show you guys
the difference between applying The Last Coat TLC
and applying basic wax. Wanted to show you guys the difference in the hydrophobic properties. I’ll also explain, I’ve been
using this as a standalone for protection after
doing a paint correction. It’s working really, really well. The beads and the hydrophobic
effect are pretty insane. With that being said,
we’re gonna apply TLC here, and we’re gonna apply wax over here. Really, the biggest difference here is sun will melt off wax at
around 185 degrees Fahrenheit, especiallY car doable waxes is basically what I’m specifically talking about. Polymers may get a little
bit more out of it, but not much more. All waxes are gonna pretty much be right around that same aspect. So, if you have a dark colored
vehicle, not white like this, I mean a wax is not gonna last very long, especially black down
in Southern California, anywhere where it’s a
hot, hot area, California, New York area in the middle of summer. I mean, you’re just gonna melt that stuff off like immediately. So, let’s just get after it here. Shake this up nice and well. Just gonna use a microfiber
as an applicator. A little bit on there, which
is quite a bit in all reality, so probably a lot more than
what I need for this area here. So, we will apply this. Flip to a clean side. And, we’ll let that
actually set up for a second while I apply the last coat just to give it its best ability. So again, here’s The Last Coat. So, we’ll rub it into the surface. I kinda like using a hashtag method since it’s got coating technology, you can kinda level the coating
while you’re doing this, then flip, here’s the side
that we applied it with. Gonna flip to the clean dry side, and we’re just gonna buff it right off. Can already feel the
smoothness in this paint. Okay, now we’re gonna go
back to our green one here, we’re gonna buff all this off. Now, we’re gonna throw some water on there and see what the actual differences are. (motor whirring)
(water spraying) And, as you can clearly see, we have nothing but sheeting
action going on over here, and we have solid beading. (motor whirring)
(water spraying) Now, from my experiences
and everything I know, which I’m certified by
two different companies for applying ceramics. This has a ceramic look,
this does not over here. We wanna see beading, which
is basically the ability for the surface to push
the water away from it. So, we don’t wanna see it
creating a sheeting effect like this because there’s
really no protection there. The water’s just randomly doing its thing. When we have beads, the
water cannot actually absorb into the surface, it is
literally staying on top of it. So, certain, and you’re
kinda going, well this is a little bit dryer, but
at the end of the day, this will lead into water spotting and all kinds of other
bad things over time. Back to what I say, this is
gonna degrade and walk away and be gone within
maybe two weeks at best. I mean, unless you got a garage-kept car, and with that being said,
maybe you got a month’s life out of it, this over
here, you’re gonna have a considerable amount of life out of it. (machine whirring)
(water spraying) And you could even see, the
more water I put on the wax, the more it’s already going, we’re tearing it apart and degrading it. The Last Coat TLC, it’s
just beading and beading. So, that’s what you wanna see here. You certainly don’t wanna see this water sheeting action going on. Even when we decontaminate
a surface, before we start doing paint correction, water
would look just like this because there is no
protection on the surface. Once you get an actual quality
protection being a ceramic, something like that, which they claim to have coating technology, and certainly, that looks like coating technology to me. So, beads are what you want. You don’t wanna see a sheeting
action from the water. So, hopefully that kind
of explains a little bit. Appreciate y’all watching,
and let’s do it one more time just so we can see it.
(machine whirring) (water spraying)
Pretty amazing results. I love this stuff. I’ll definitely sit here
and say that I apply it quite often, and I’ll use
it pretty much every day. I work six to seven days a week, and there’s probably not a
day that I don’t go for it and apply it to something. Makes my life a lot easier,
really love this stuff, so thank you to The Last Coat and TLC ’cause you guys are making
my life easier, thank you.
