Optimum Car Wax 128 oz. Refill

Patented UV protection for up to 5 months!

Optimum Car Wax's original, fantastic formula was overhauled to provide an even deeper gloss and incredible slickness. Just when you thought Optimum Car Wax couldn’t get any better, this all new formula shatters your perceptions of a spray wax. Try it for yourself!

Optimum is the first and only wax that contains UVA and UVB absorbers to shield your paint from all the sun’s harmful rays. The formula combines high-grade carnauba wax and sealant polymers to give you outstanding shine and protection. The carnauba produces a warm, high-impact gloss that is the standard in the auto care industry while the polymers bond the shine to the paint to create the long-lasting durability typical of a synthetic wax. Paint has a beautiful, wet shine and is protected from the sun, acid rain, and pollution for up to 5 months!

Optimum Car Wax contains no cleaners or abrasives. It will not scratch, swirl, or penetrate the clear coat, so your vehicle has optimum protection from the elements.

The propriety formula not only takes care of your vehicle’s best interest, it is environmentally safe. There are no harsh chemicals or dangerous VOC’s in Optimum Car Wax.

The best part is that Optimum Car Wax is incredibly easy to apply! Spray it onto your vehicle and spread it over the paint with a microfiber towel. No buffing is required to get a gorgeous carnauba shine! Optimum Car Wax even protects vinyl trim and moldings without staining it. You don’t have to buy a separate vinyl protectant or struggle with white wax residue. Just spray and wipe! It only takes 15 minutes to wax your whole vehicle and it lasts for up to 5 months.

Optimum products are used in many detail shops across the country because they save time, deliver fantastic results, and are cost effective.

Give your vehicle optimum shine, patented UV protection, and durability with Optimum Car Wax.

Optimum Car Wax looks as good as a carnauba wax and lasts as long as a paint sealant!

Optimum Car Wax delivers shine and protection you'd expect from a traditional wax or sealant!


What is the difference between a wax and a polish?
Many products in the market, whether called "wax" or "polish", contain polishing agents. Polishing agents remove paint and create swirl marks on the painted surface. Fine polishing agents create fine swirl marks and remove less paint. The swirl marks become very visible after the wax wears off. Optimum Car Wax offers long-lasting protection without damaging or removing the clear coat finish.

Why do many wax /polish products contain abrasives?
Conventional waxes and polishes were designed for older enamel finishes to remove oxidized pigments and colorants. Paint technology has come a long way in the past decade; however, many wax /polish manufacturers still offer the same old technologies.

How can I protect the clear coat finish on my car?
Only use automotive car wash soaps to wash your car. Use microfiber cloths for drying and/or waxing your car. Apply Optimum Car Wax with UV once every four months to the painted surfaces to get maximum protection.

What is the difference between liquid and paste wax /polish?
The only difference between liquid and paste waxes /polishes is thickening agents. Both conventional liquid and paste waxes/polishes can contain abrasives which can harm the clear coat finish. Look for products that specifically state that they do not contain abrasives or cleaners.

How do I remove swirl marks or deep scratches?
Optimum Car Wax with UV is helps hide the swirl marks without creating new ones. If there are deep scratches, a random orbital polisher with a foam pad is best way to apply a swirl remover, such as Optimum Polish.

Why should I wax my car if it has a clear coat finish?
Clear coat finishes contain additives to reduce scratching and marring and protect the clear coat from environmental elements such as acid rain, bird droppings, tree sap, etc. These additives also cause water beading on new cars. After a few months, these surface protectants are eroded by the environmental elements. Optimum Car Wax will restore this protective layer. Furthermore, it helps reduce fading from exposure to the sun.

What is the benefit of UV inhibitors in Optimum Car Wax?
UV inhibitors help keep the color from fading and are present in the clear coat finish. These become deactivated or consumed over time. The UV inhibitors in Optimum Car Wax augment these and help protect the paint from fading.

Can I use an orbital buffer with Optimum Car Wax to wax my car?
Absolutely. In fact, most detail shops use Optimum Car Wax with high speed polishers or orbital buffers. You must use a low density foam pad with your dual action (orbital) buffer or polisher. This combination results in a very high gloss finish in a few minutes.

Should I use polish/wax to remove oxidized paint?
Most people in the detailing industry refer to the surface contamination of paint as oxidation. This baked on dirt and grime needs to be cleaned before waxing and in fact, regular application of Optimum Car Wax will keep these contaminants from adhering to paint.

What conditions should I avoid when using Optimum Car Wax?
In order to avoid baking the wax and making it difficult to move, it is best to apply Optimum Car Wax in the shade when the paint surface is cool to the touch. You can even apply Optimum Car Wax in a garage or other enclosed areas since it contains no chemical solvents whatsoever.

What should I do if I spray Optimum Car Wax on my black trim?
No problem. Since Optimum Car Wax has no abrasives, it will not cause damage to moldings or trims. In fact applying Optimum Car Wax on these surfaces will protect them as well.

Why is there some haziness after I wax my car with Optimum Car Wax?
Depending on the temperature and the humidity, you may see some haziness. Lightly buff the surface with a Cobra Microfiber Towel and you will see the increase in gloss right away.

Conditions to avoid:
Auto Surface temperatures below 55F or greater than 90F.
Heavy oxidation or dirt buildup
Over application – A little goes a long way!

Crazy shine/gloss! SUPER EASY to use! Doesn't stain plastic parts. Lasts up to 5 months!??! Even if it didn't, It's so easy to re-apply, you'll never be unprotected! I bought a gallon and shared with friends and family. A little goes a LONG way.. I may not need to buy wax again for 5 years!
ProsSUPER EASY - Actually spray and wipe off!

Love this spray wax!
Been using this for at least 4-5 years now, and I love it. Unlike the cheap auto store spray waxes, this product actually puts a decent layer of wax on your paint. In fact, you have to be careful - if you overspray onto a window, it leaves wax spots that can only be removed with rubbing alcohol! Yes, it sticks that well! I use it as a sacrificial topper after every wash over Opti-Seal (which I do once every year or two), but it doesn't really seem to lose any coverage between washes (every 4-6 weeks).
ProsVery protective and easy to apply No more expensive than the cheap spray waxes when you buy by the gallon

Nothing but good things to say!
I use Optimum's Spray Wax as a quick add-on to already properly washed and clean cars with nice gloss beforehand - so the spray wax goes on and comes off nicely. It can even be used 'while drying' to completely remove any chance of water spots, and it really does add a great gloss. I have not tried Duragloss's AquaWax, BUT, I don't have a reason to, I'm happy with Optimum's product and plus Duragloss AquaWax doesn't contain any Carnauba, only synthetic polymers... Optimum contains BOTH!

Best In Class
The most durable spray wax I have used. A real treat to use and something everyone should have in their garage.

Good product.
Great product with good shine and sickness. 5 months? What a joke. Not even close at all. you would be lucky to get 5 weeks out of it. In fact, the durability more like 5 days. Well, maybe a week or two if the car is properly cleaned. The polymer is the choice over carnauba for auto detailing in Kansas City. Let's just say we see some harsh weather year around. That being said, it is a great product. Looks great on all colors.

Great Spray Wax!
For a spray wax, it's the best out there in my opinion. Last a long time and very easy to apply with no residue on rubber or plastics. You can dry and wax your vehicle in 1 step and works well after using Optimum No Rinse.
