Which wax/sealant is suitable for me?

This question has probably been asked many times by our customers.

We are going to go into details on which wax/sealant is suitable for you

 

fusso coat

Fusso Coat

Gloss 3/5

Durability 5/5                                                                          

Hydrophobic 5/5

Ease of use 3/5

Layerable? YES

Type: Solid Real life durability: 6-8 months most commonly seen, Longest scenario 12 months+

Suitable for: Not often maintenance car (3 months’- 6months in-between wash interval), winter protection.

The Fusso coat is our most popular sealant without a doubt because of its legendary durability. Our customers also like it for its superhydrophobic characteristic which is unravelling in the competition.

However, some customers might find it to be difficult to apply and might be causing marks on darker colour paint please read our “How to apply guide”.

 

king of gloss

King Of Gloss

Gloss 4/5

Durability 3.5/5                                                                          

Hydrophobic 4.5/5

Ease of use 3.5/5

Layerable? YES

Type: Solid Real life durability: 3 months most commonly seen, Longest scenario 5 months+

Suitable for: Enthusiast that washes their car regularly (2 weeks to a month interval) and likes a deep finish.

The King Of Gloss is our very popular hybrid wax. It's signature finishes offer very unique looks added to the car. Compare to Fusso and kiwami it has a significant darkening effect on the paint. Dark colour cars, metallic colour cars would see the most different from the product!

Application wise is easier to apply than a fusso coat, but still, caution must be exercised prior to application. Another advantage that excels on the KOG which is not often talked about is the filling capabilities! Despite not having the same effect as a filler, it is a very close match!

 

kiwami

Kiwami Extreme Gloss Wax

Gloss 4.5/5

Durability 4/5

Hydrophobic 4/5

Ease of use 4/5

Layerable? YES

Type: Solid Real life durability: 3 months most commonly seen, Longest scenario 5 months+

Suitable for: Enthusiast that washes their car regularly (2 weeks to a month interval) and likes a warm glossy finish!

The Kiwami was originally seen as a successor of King Of Gloss! Under some close inspection, we found out that they are actually quite a big difference. The carnauba content is higher in the Kiwami compare to King Of Gloss, therefore it doesn’t offer the tinted effect like KOG. It resembles a carnauba wax finishes a warmer gloss like.

Our customers always asked as the question, which is better KOG or Kiwami? Is totally down to personal preference. If you prefer a darkening effect KOG is no doubt the choice to go for, if you prefer a carnauba finish, by no means Kiwami would be a better choice!

mirror shine

Mirror Shine Wax

Gloss 4/5

Durability 3.5/5

Hydrophobic 4.5/5

Ease of use 5/5 Layerable?

YES Type: Solid Real life durability: 2.5 months most commonly seen, Longest scenario 4 months+

Suitable for Enthusiast that washes their car regularly (2 weeks to a month interval) and those who hate conventional wax, as well as for beginners!

The name says it all! Mirror Shine! Perhaps this is one of the most unloved Soft99 waxes we ever have. Due to the vast variety of Soft99 wax offer, the Mirror Shine was left unmentioned always. The selling point of this product is how easy to use! As far as concern waxing your car would never be easier than using Mirror Shine.

When time is constraining this is also the best product to go to as you don’t need curing time to buff off! Simple 2 fold your cloth to start applying wax to one side and flip to another side to buff off! Alternatively, you could choose to a buff of the wax till it disappeared on one side! The finishing of this product will be in the middle of King of gloss and kiwami, it does have the darkening effect of KOG but not as significant!

 

water block

Water Block

Gloss 3.5/5

Durability 4.5/5

Hydrophobic 5.5/5

Ease of use 3/5

Layerable? YES (On its own) But not with other products.

Type: Solid Real life durability: 3-4 months solid, 7 months’ longest scenario

Suitable for: Not often maintenance car (3 months’ wash interval), Enthusiast that must pursuit the craziest water behaviour from Soft99 sealant range.

The water block is a very special product in the Soft99 wax/sealant category. It smells and looks exactly like Fusso! So what's the catch? If you like Fusso coat but sometimes is a pain to remove and if you can sacrifice durability for a bit in exchange for a more hydrophobic behaviour this is the product to go for! Technically speaking the water behaviour compare to fusso is ever so slightly different, is sometimes hard to tell!

Please do not expect a leap performance especially Fusso coat is pretty great in this department! For finishing wise we do notice a slight difference but nothing too significant compared to others, the clarity is definitely improving over Fusso in this department. Why is it not layerable? Being too similar in a lot of characteristic as Fusso coat, It is not justifiable to layer it given the difference between is not justifiable.

new scratches

Scratch Clear Wax

Filling 5/5

Durability 2.5/5

Hydrophobic 3/5

Ease of use 3.5/5

Layerable? No

Type: Soft Paste Real life durability: 1-2 months mostly.

Suitable for: A very bad swirl up bodywork condition, someone with no time to machine polish, glaze alternative with some protection.

Made no mistake about the name of Scratch Clear wax, it doesn’t exactly remove scratch like other compound abrasive products, but instead, it will fill swirls like a champion! The effect of these products will easily classify as an All-In-One (AIO) product. The importance of this wax is not to focus on water hydrophobicity but it does offer some, it also works as good as a glaze if not better. If you really want to add some hydrophobic properties to it, you should top up with Our Quick wax or Synthetic spray wax.
