I'm fairly new to this so please be patient with me as this maybe just one of several things I ask before I make a start. I want to try to get it right without too many basic mistakes!.

My quesrtion here is about 'Chemical Guys - Speed Wipe' . Is it totally synthetic in its content like 'Chemical Guys - Synthetic Quick Detailer' or does it contain some 'natural wax' like the 'Chemical Guys - Pro-Detailer' product - the product description does not make this clear?.

I have bought this as my Quick Detailer to use ocasionally after my 'last stages' which will be Carlack 68 NSC followed by Carlack 68 LLS. I do not want to use a QD with natural wax content that might make it difficult to layer on extra coats of Carlack 68 LLS.

Thanks for any advice or information.

Bill.

Taken from the Chemical Guys website:-

"Speed Wipe is 100% wax free, formulated with pure gloss enhancers to deliver a mirror perfect finish to any finish. Formulated to repel dust by reducing static cling to the paints surface Speed wipe shines, repels and protects using UVA and UVB light blocking agents. Achieve A show Stopping High Shine Finish is Seconds.

Use Speed-Wipe as a waterless car wash, a clay bar lubricant, or to enhance the depth and clarity of paint, chrome, plastic, aluminum, or glass. Will not strip or remove wax or sealants. can be diluted 3:1 with distilled H20 if desired. "

Have a look at Sonus High Gloss Acrylic Spritz http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/Stor ... ductId=480 and Sonus Acrylic Glanz http://www.theultimatefinish.co.uk/Stor ... ductId=482 which are labelled as being compatible with Klasse/Car-Lack products :idea:

Hi, thanks for your reply.

I guess what has prompted me to ask this question was that the labelling on the package seems to be slightly different in the UK and US products:

The US product is labelled:
"Chemical GUYS
Anti-Static
Body Shine-SPEED WIPE
Spray& Shine Quick Detailer"

The UK product that I have purchased is labelled:
"Chemical GUYS
Extreme
CG-SPEED WIPE
Spray Wax & Quick Detailer"

It was the word 'Wax' in the UK description that made me wonder if the formulation was changed.

Bill.

I'm in agreement with Mulder over the Sonus products - they will play best with your Car-Lack products and the Acrylic Glanz is actually a re-mixed version of LLS designed for spraying. Beyond that, Zaino Z8 gets some astoundingly good reviews but I am yet to try it personally - I will, though :wink:

The Chemical Guys QDs are both pretty good. In use, I would favour Speed Wipe as both a clay lube, drying aid and final maintenance spray over Synthetic Quick Detailer. It is entirely synthetic ...

... from the Chemical Guys website:

Quote:
Introducing Slick Synthetic Acrylic Polymer Detailer. Chemical Guys no wax, no film, non-streaking extremely slick, no-effort, single wipe 100% synthetic super bright ( Anti Static) quick shine detailer. formulated utilizing a synthetically derived lubricating agent to reduce static causing surface friction by over 75%. by reducing static caused during surface friction like drying, quick detailing, wax removal and application, synthetic detailer greatly reduces static charge left on surface limiting air born dust deposits by over 50% and greatly reducing the risk of scratching delicate paint surfaces

http://www.chemicalguys.com/Pink_Quick_ ... ac_102.htm

For now, you've made a good choice and I'm sure you'll get along fine with the Speed Wipe product. Depending upon how you use it most will perhaps influence a future purchase. Personally, I find I do not need a QD to assist drying and I'd rather use a maintenance product with waxes and sealant in for my final spritzed - I really rate Chemical Guys Blitz :idea:

Don't worry about asking questions - we're never condescending here. Ask away ...

Thanks Paul.

I bought the CG Speed Wipe for use as clay lube (my first attempt!!).

I'm tempted to order some of that Sonus Glanz.

Bill.

I have not tried the Acrylic Glanz myself and meant to this autumn to compliment my usual Car-Lack/Collinite winter combo, but have not got around to it yet. AFAIK, the Acrylic Glanz is more like a booster product than a QD, per se.

The Sonus Spritzes are also a good idea, the choice depends upon whether you followed up LLS with a wax, or not - Carnauba Spritz if you did and Acrylic Spritz otherwise.
