Wax is a naturally occurring substance produced by palms and other plants. Wax products can also be created from hydrocarbons and synthetic sources. Since wax is solid at normal temperatures, it’s often modified with other materials to make it soft enough to spread.

Applying wax to a vehicle promotes the rapid shedding of rainwater and prevents oil, grease, salt, and other substances from damaging the paint and finish. Wax should be applied after washing the vehicle and should be reapplied every three to four months for the best results.
