is it only me or does everyone who uses the Soft99 Fusso Wax suffers from this. no matter how much the surface was prepped prior, a "dark" layer will develop on top of it few months into its application. it is not obvious and is not visible until you take a clay bar against it.

because i re-apply the wax every 8 months or so, claying the car becomes a ritual.

what gives?

Some spare time after work and after the light drizzle so washed the bonnet and then coat all windscreens and windows with Glaco roll on.

Noticed that there's some oil residue when I buffed off though. Probably should have used IPA wipe or clay it before apply the coating for better effect.

I stopped using Glaco and change into TW Clearvue reain repellent .. similar effects with lower price tag . brows.gif

Hi! I'm new to detailing stuff.
Planning on trying out Glaco products, but on shopee product pages, the instructions says to not apply on wet windshield as it would damage the surface, but what if it rains after applying?
Why will Glaco damage the surface if mix with water?

Also, does it matter if it is applied on my car with tint applied?
*
Probably coz glaco needs time to cure.
Tint is inside the car, glaco is outside. I dont think it affects

Haha, yea. Sold off 2 weeks ago with the balance going into the downpayment for the Ativa.

It's been a good 2 years although slightly underused and everything was stock, hence possibly the decent price I received. I removed all the stickers except for the boot bar decal though. brows.gif

So new project coming + coupled with the almost daily evening rain - might want to start claying the car by this weekend.

So many racun coating packages on offer on the Ativa FB pages too, like Alva at RM 588 but all this while I've pretty much resisted doing coating...

Not sure if I should take the plunge.

Probably just stick to DIY and save that RMXXX instead.

could it be the wax is picking up the residue from the clay and leave it on your surface?

I also think maybe the buffing action makes the contaminants/dirt appear.. probably thats why they say better clay/ipa before putting on new wax?

from here:
https://www.meguiars.com/automotive/product...%5B1393%5D=1393
totally no longer have wheel/rim coating products. however i've used:
https://www.meguiars.com.my/index.php?route...&product_id=299
Product Code: G-15009EU
(looks like EU market only? megs USA tarak, only Malaysia/EU)

anyways my experience after finishing a can:
not very different than "SONAX XTREME WHEEL RIM COATING nano pro" (mouthful lol)
durability of the Meguiar's brake dust barrier lasts around:
1-5 months
or
5-10 washes
or
2-3 burning brake sessions
(whichever firsts)
Sonax durability can be shorter or longer, both products durability quite inconsistent and the biggest killer is when i have burning brakes that destroys them in a hurry lol

i think and assume that it is badly worded "will affect durability/performance of the end results"

tint does not affect at all.

Soft99 water block wax only able to hold like a week or so then the beads no longer beads off nicely , TW S&S works better than that but hard paste wax hard to buff off  sweat.gif

hard wax? as in their ancient basic rm1x to 20 ish supermarkets widely available hard shell paste wax?
that's not too bad actually... but yeah a lot of residue to buff off so apply it very thinly and don't do an entire car only begin to buff off (a bad habit of mine LOL!)
and... i STILL have the same tub that i bought maybe 10+ years ago LOL

Don't think so this is what happened. i prepped the surface (ie: clayed and wiped down with IPA solution) before applying the Fusso Wax and the surface looks white (upper left) after application. The darken layer just magically develops over the course of the months and because it develops gradually, you'll hardly see it until you take a clay bar against it.

Strangely enough, despite the appearance of the "darken film" on top of the surface, it does not affect its hydrophobic properties which means the wax is still intact hmm.gif very strange.

Turtlewax hard paste easier to buff off if compared to Soft99 Hard paste, even on fusso coat or block water max paste those really require tons of elbow grease to buff it off
i tried even lay it on for less than 3 mins also found it hard to buff off .sweat.gif

Wow even cheaper ah? Haha.

I have Meg's Glass Sealant & Carmate too but after one try of the Meg's I somehow prefer the Glaco due to the ease of use.

Hmm I did take a look but didn't really pursue.

Are you using it? I still wondering if it's a worthwhile addition since the results does look very similar to spray on products like Seal & Shine or even Meg's HCW.

About RM60-70 plus ah? That might be one of the more pricier Soft 99 products I've bought if not counting the Soft 99 Pump. Haha.

The bottle looks quite small though when I've seen the reviews.

Might just KIV for future reference.

A bit waste to layer anything above cleaner wax

So IMHO, not correct

Woah harder to buff off than turtle!? :star:

Turtle hard shell paste wax was among my first experience to car wax

Then spoiled by Meguiar ultimate liquid wax, and now DodoJuice (among the easiest boutique paste wax)

means the wax is doing it's job, it is also collecting dirt and sticking on to the surface.

I think what quazacolt meant was the cleaner wax already got wax. But of course fusso is better. Probably should clean off the cleaner wax and use paste wax instead. Or use a polisher without wax..
I also have this metaclean, asked here before too. Cleaner wax got its own wax..
