I started using the Poorboys Natty/Blue paste wax and you can tell the difference in terms of appearance and durability over a liquid wax (e.g. A/Glym Super Resin Polish). More on a dark car.. less on a light one.
But it takes longer to apply. AG is quick and the finish is excellent. Only the more expensive paste polishes give a noticeably better finish.. and sometimes even that noticeable difference is marginal.
i think this is where it gets difficult to explain ?
AG SRP is not a wax ! and polish and wax are different things !
Polish creates a good prepped surface and SRP has swirl fillers to disguise swirls this alone has some protection but little durability, wax or sealant is applied over polish to seal in the finish you have created.
Some paste wax's are not as easy to apply and remove like SRP but as above its not the same product group so cannot compare, collinte 476 is very easy to apply and remove for a "wax" hence its so popular and its as easy if not easier to use then SRP and does not create all the white dust SPR does !
but the ideal way to use SPR as it is a good product for what its meant for (not a final finish) is;
paint cleaner (carlack 68 is brill)
SPR to polish and remove very light swirls and disguise larger ones
Sealant or wax or both
the sealant and Wax are the final stages SPR is not a final stage and is a polish not wax, polish gets it clean then you are meant to protect that finish and this is where sealant or wax enters the picture.
onced waxed with a wax product not a polish the finish will stay like that for ages hence the reply's saying its great and has lasted months on the car and each wash produces that "just waxed finish" but without having to wax !
Autoexpress along with other detailers have all tested its durability against other products and it always comes out way at the top ! funny how AG does not ????? in the same tests.
