Hybrid waxes are a fusion of premium natural waxes (like carnauba) and high tech sealant technologies.
This means they deliver the best of both worlds. Great filling, gloss enhancement, water behaviour and ease of use from the wax elements. And superb longevity, durability (including solvent/heat resistance) and shine from the sealant constituents.
In fact, our hybrid waxes are so good that they can go toe to toe with true ceramic sealants for many months and outperform the cheap so-called ‘ceramic’ products easily. The difference is that you don’t need to panel-wipe your car first and you won’t need to machine polish off unsightly residues if you get it wrong.
More filling and ease of use than a genuine ceramic, and water behaviour that lasts just as long in real terms (ceramics really need actively maintaining every 3 months)… versus the fact you’d just need to recoat your car every 6 months rather than every year… no wonder so many customers are coming back to traditional waxes.
Shinecraft is based on our award-winning Supernatural Hybrid recipe that took the detailing community by storm at launch, winning Detailing World’s Best Wax and Best Sealant awards in the same year. After all, it’s a bit of both.
With no dedicated colouring, it suits all finishes or use it on light colours, whites and silvers. We always recommend hybrid waxes for customers with metallic or pearlescent cars, because the sealant component gives a little more reflection and shine than regular carnauba waxes. And being heat resistant, you can use hybrid waxes as dedicated wheel sealants
Recoating interval? About every 4-6 months, but that’s on a daily driver. On a garaged car used occasionally we’d probably re-wax once a year.
