How do I remove the white haze left behind on the plastic trim on my automobile?
Use mineral spirits for removing the polish residue left behind on plastic trim. Car polishes/waxes contain a cleaner that will leave a haze on plastic trim.
How do I remove dead paint and oxidation from my paint's surface?
Use a prewax cleaner or a liquid oxidation remover for removing dead paint and oxidation (refer to previous question). You should then polish your car with Nu Finish Car Polish, once the oxidation has been removed, in order to protect your paint's surface and provide a long lasting shine.
After I polished my car, the surface has swirls, or a white haze. What do I do?
You probably have "oxidation." You don't usually see oxidation, but the dulling of your paint's finish may mean that you have oxidation. Your car's colour slowly changes due to oxidation, stripping your car of the shine that it once had when it left the showroom.
Oxidation is caused by the weathering of your painted surface on your car, primarily from the intensity of the sun's rays as well as exposure to moisture. The natural oils are lost because the sun dries out the top layers of paint. If these oils aren't replaced, the paint oxidizes. The oxidized paint is also described as "dead paint." The surfaces that are most affected are the flat surfaces, such as the hood, roof and/or trunk of the car because of exposure to direct sunlight.
What is the difference between a polish and a conventional wax?
Conventional waxes don't last long because the common ingredient in these products, carnauba wax, breaks down quickly from everyday conditions. Neither Nu Finish Liquid nor Nu Finish Paste Car Polish contain carnauba waxes. No other liquid or paste products can make that claim!
Nu Finish is made up of a series of zinc cross-linking polymer emulsions that help Nu Finish last longer than any other polish on the market. This is why Nu Finish is called "The-Once-A-Year Car Polish." Watch how Nu Finish makes water bead month after month.
What is the difference between a paste and liquid polish or wax?
Pastes and liquids differ mainly in their application process. Some people prefer pastes to liquids because it is a more traditional method of applying protection to your car's finish; others prefer to add that same protection in less time. And Nu Finish Paste Car Polish is one of the only soft pastes in the market today, making it much easier to apply than your traditional carnauba paste waxes.
Are car polishes that contain silicone bad for my car's paint?
No, absolutely not. In fact, automotive paints worldwide actually contain silicone as a key ingredient for lubricity purposes. Silicone in car polishes will not cause "fish eyes," which are small circular craters that appear in the finish of new applications of paint. Applying fresh paint to the surface of your car that was recently waxed or polished may cause fish eyes in the paint if the proper steps weren't taken to remove the silicone or wax prior to repainting the car. But fish eyes don't appear in your paint's surface if you are polishing a dry, painted surface.
How long will Nu Finish Car Polish last?
Independent laboratory tests have proven that Nu Finish Car Polish can last for a whole year in standard weather conditions. If you were to wash your car every week for a whole year, water would still bead on your car's finish after the 52nd car wash. The beading on your car's paint is a sure sign that your paint is being protected by your polish or wax. We recommend that you apply a second coat of Nu Finish Car Polish 30 days after your first application for maximum protection.
Can I apply Nu Finish in direct sunlight?
Yes, Nu Finish, unlike conventional car waxes, can actually be applied in direct sunlight. It's specially formulated so that the polish doesn't bake into the surface and become difficult to remove like most car waxes.
What other uses are there for Nu Finish besides polishing a car?
Nu Finish works great on fibreglass boats, airplanes, motorcycles and recreational vehicles. Nu Finish can also be used on chrome, and it works great to protect against salt spray, bird droppings, tree sap and road tar. Some customers report using Nu Finish on stainless steel, copper, kitchen cabinets, refrigerators and much more.
What surfaces shouldn't I polish with Nu Finish?
We always recommend that you first try Nu Finish on an inconspicuous area, even if you are polishing your car.
Do not use Nu Finish Car Polish on vinyl, plastic trim, simulated wood, rubber or flat paint. Also, do not use Nu Finish on areas like tile floors and bathtubs. It makes the surfaces extremely slippery and could cause injury to others.
