Collinite No. 845


Recommended Posts

I am now a BIG fan of this wax. I had never heard of it before until a buddy of mine with a stable of BMW's told me to pick some up! It went on and off easier than any wax I've used previously, and man does my SHO look good!

I'm right there with you. This is all I've used for the past 3 years and with 3 black vehicles (SHO included). Just wait until 4 months from now you wash the car and it still beads water better than most waxes do when freshly applied. Then you'll really be impressed.

I have used it too - great product. Actually incredible product. I don't know why, but I found it more difficult to work with than traditional polishes/waxes. So I have been using Zaino for the past 6 or so years. Maybe the formula changed since 2006 and it is easier to use ? My issue was not in applying, but removing. Took a long time to get rid of the "greasy" smudges as I recall.

Not that the 845 ever really hazes over like conventional wax, but it sounds like you may have been trying to buff it off too early. You also do need to rotate the buffing microfiber fairly regularly, but I'd bet the issue was not letting it dry long enough.

I believe it suggests you only do 2x2 sections at a time....I however went much bigger, and therefore let the wax dry a bit longer. It was humid as heck here yesterday and it didn't seem to effect it a bit.

I generally apply the 845 to an entire panel at a time (hood, or trunk, or roof, etc), then rotate between buffing and applying. After applying to the first panel, I'll treat the tire sidewalls, then apply to a second panel, buff the first, apply to a third panel, etc. But I also do this in my air conditioned garage so humidity isn't a problem.
