    Question Nxt Tech VS Gold Class

    Hi....friends...

    Just a mail from the other side of the world. I am quite new to this forum but I found it's very good. I have been a fan of Gold Class series products for many years (since I was studying in Maryland). Recently, a couple friend of mine have used the Nxt Tech Series and recommended me to go for it. Therefore, I need your advice on the differences between these two series in both applications and results.

    Any suggestions?

    Many thanks....

    Luck

    :Welcome Suttiluk

    Good to have new members especially global ones.

    I can tell you that NXT Tech wax is amazing. It goes on easy and comes off easy. It leaves a great shine that actually gets better hours after removal as the polymers crosslink. I think you will like NXT better than the Gold Class Wax. I know I do.

    Apply very thin coats to a cool finish. Leave it rest for about 30 minutes then remove with a microfiber towel. Two coats looks better than one. Wait 12-24 hours and apply the second coat.

    I also like to use the NXT Booster spray wax after every couple of washes. It keep the finish looking and feeling like it was just freshly waxed.

    Again, welcome to the forum.

    Hi Suttiluk,

    Gold Class Wax is a blended wax, it uses both synthetic polymers and natural Carnauba wax for protection. It is also a polish wax and contains Meguiar's trade secret polishing oils to add richness, reflectivity, clarity and gloss.

    NXT Tech Wax is a pure synthetic wax, it contains no natural ingredients except for water. It is Meguiar's longest lasting, best protection wax. It also will dramatically help to eliminate swirls.

    Check out the results from one hand-applied coat of Tech Wax on this black Corvette,








    Give it a try and see what you think...

    Hi Mstngkiller,

    Welcome to Meguiar's Online!

    The NXT Tech Wax offers better protection, but both will look great when applied to a new, like-new, or previously cleaned polished paint. For many people, it will be one of those things where you'll have to try for yourself and then make up your own mind.

    People are still very much confused about polisher and wax (especially where I live). They feel that in order for the car to have a wet and glossy look, true canuba or synthetic wax are the most important ingredient of the process. They just don't realize that new, like-new, or previously cleaned polished paint ( like Mike said) is even more important and shouldbe acheived first. You just have to polish your car to the maximum gloss first, then wax can help adding richness, reflectivity and clarity.
    Just a thought, a $100 wax cannot make your car look better on a dull finish.

    Good luck and Enjoy MEG's stuff. It's amazing.

    Hi Matt,

    Gold Class Wash is Meguiar's slickest car wash, it's non-detergent and pH balanced and formulated especially for washing your car, it won't harm anything.

    what would be a good polish to use?? I need to clay my car which i plan on doing soon. Would i still need to polish it afterwords then apply the wax.

    i have the GC wax at the moment since it came in the gift pack but i plan on switching to the NXT product with everything. I have been wondering what is canuba wax?? i have heard people say not to use anything with it but it seems thats the thing to have.

    and thanks for the help

    Carnauba wax is the purified form of a plant extract. It is the hardest natural wax in existence and forms a strong seal over your car.

    The waxes used on cars are actually only contain a small amount of carnauba, since pure carnauba has a consistency similar to wood. The liquid or paste portion of the car wax is just to carry carnauba particles onto the finish -- the liquids evaporate and the carnauba is left behind in a thin layer.

    NXT is a synthetic sealant, using polymers instead of wax to seal the surface against contaminants.

    Polishes do one of two things -- restore oils that paint loses over time or, for those polishes containing abrasives, smooth the top layer of paint to restore a glassy finish.

    A polish makes your paint look good, a wax/sealant keeps it that way. What polish to use depends on the condition of your paint -- generally, the more deterioration of your paint, the more time you spend polishing with more aggressive materials.

    A paint cleaner, which like polishes can contain abrasives, removes contaminants and stains via a chemical process. Claying your car is cleaning it mechanically.

    The general rule: wash, clay, clean, polish, wax. Each step adds to the appearance of your car. You can get products that combine steps, but typically you get better results with dedicated products for each step.
