EINSZETT Polish and Wax application
By Michael Mankarious
The following are directions for application of any of our polish and wax products. There are no special tips or tricks. Just let the product do the work.
Polishes maybe applied in one of several ways:
100% Terry Cotton Towel
Next, allow the product to dry to a haze and wipe off with a clean towel. Repeat process if necessary. Continue this process doing section by section until car is completed.
Foam Applicator Pad
We prefer the use of a towel over an applicator pad because the cotton fibers of the towel created more friction which allows the polish to be more effective at cleaning.
Dual Action Orbital Polisher vs. Hand Application
1) DA's allow for more consistent results from beginning to end -- fatigue, which is a factor in hand application, is not a factor with the DA since the machine is doing all the work. This means that you apply the same consistent effort throughout the entire polishing process. This translates into better results from beginning to end.
2) Less product is needed. The same amount of polish poured for hand application can treat about twice as much surface area with the DA.
To apply using a DA, pour product on to either car surface or polishing pad. With DA in "off" position, spread product on to surface--this prevents splatter. Turn DA "on" and work in area approximately 2 square feet. Starting from the top of the section working your way down, move in a side to side motion, overlapping as you move downwards. When product dries to a haze, wipe off with a clean cotton towel. Repeat process if necessary.
NOTE: For experienced users only. Improper use can result in damage to the paintwork.
Unlike competing polishes, 1Z polishes are designed to stay wet longer and are low dusting which means easy clean up and the ability to apply in regions with higher temperatures.
With an applicator foam pad or a terry cotton towel, pour a small amount onto either pad or towel and then wipe on surface of car. Since it applies in liquid form, a small amount will cover a large area. So be cautious the first time and don't pour too much.
Treat only one section at a time. After 30-60 seconds the product will turn from a liquid form to a milky gray color. When this happens, use a clean cotton towel or microfiber towel to wipe off. Continue to use a clean side of cloth to wipe off remaining wax. If the product gets on black plastic trim, do not be concerned. Glanz Wax will not leave a white residue or chalky remains.
