Paintwork Care


A car's paintwork is exposed to all weathers, as well as mechanical wear and tear. Sooner or later the paintwork shows its age - the surface gets scratched, the paintwork looks dull and the colours fade. Regular polishing restores the surface shine and freshens up the colours, again and again. A good polish such as SONAX Polish & Wax contains high quality carnauba hard wax, which simultaneously protects and preserves the paintwork when polished out.

1. Washing

Before polishing, wash the car first - with SONAX Gloss Shampoo Concentrate and water, all surface grime is removed thoroughly, and it is gentle on the paintwork.

Important: Use plenty of water, or why not drive through a modern automatic car wash? There the car is thoroughly washed, and it is better for the environment too.

2. Polishing

With SONAX Xtreme Polish & Wax 3, even dull and weathered paintwork is restored to its former glory. Highly effective, nano-fine abrasive particles clean deep into the paintwork and evenly wear away the dull top paint layer. The shine haze and the typical brush marks from the car wash effortlessly disappear.

Apply the polish onto the enclosed polishing sponge and, applying moderate pressure, work it into the paintwork in circular movements. Wipe off the light polish residue with a polishing cloth or microfibre cloth.

3. Sealing

Optimum long lasting protection of the polished surfaces can be attained using SONAX Xtreme Brilliant Wax 1. Just apply thinly and allow to dry for a short time, wipe off afterwards with a polishing cloth or microfibre cloth.

Thanks to NanoPro Technology, all paint care products in the Xtreme product range are really easy to polish out.
