What Is Car Wax and Why Do You Need It on Your Vehicle?

If you want to give your car's exterior the maximum protection possible, you need to apply high-quality car wax a few times per year. It protects the paint and body from water and pollution. But, what is car wax?

Every brand of car wax has a different formulation. However, all of them contain a combination of wax, oils, and solvents. Wax can be natural, coming from the carnauba plant or palm trees. It can also be synthetic, derived from silicone. Wax, however, is usually solid. To make it easy to spread on hard surfaces, manufacturers add oils and solvents.

The wax layer on your vehicle repels water. It also makes it easy to wash off pollutants, dirt, and grime. It's best applied after you wash the car. Don't polish it after application, because that strips off the wax. The service department at Century BMW stands ready to help with your car care needs.
