Ceramic Wax Pro

How long does this coating last?

Ceramic Wax PRO is packed with the best ceramic resins which have been tested and proven to last 12+ months when properly maintained. Proper maintenance consists of routine cleaning and rejuvenation with Ceramic Refresh or washing with our Ceramic Shampoo.

Can Ceramic Wax PRO be used on Boats/RVs/Planes/Trains/Tanks/etc?

Yes, if you can drive it, fly it or sail it, Ceramic Wax PRO can protect it! In fact, NASA, BOEING and Lockheed Martin all use our Ceramic Resins to withstand the harsh conditions in the Aerospace industry. Ceramic Resins protect against premature aging, weather and  Oxidation and due to the slick, non-stick finish are used on planes to help prevent dangerous Ice accumulation. Thus, Ceramic Wax PRO is a great option to create a water repellant windshield to help with visibility during wet weather conditions.

What is the best Ceramic Wax?

Most Ceramic Waxes on the market contain very little if any Ceramic Resins. They dont live up to their claims! Ethos Ceramic Wax PRO is packed with over 14 different types of Resin, including the patented Teflon ® Resin, which due to its non-stick properties is known as the slickest material on earth. In addition, Ethos Ceramic Wax PRO was completely reformulated based upon the feedback we received from our customers that want a product that is easier and more durable than ever before. Not only is this the best car wax you will ever use but it is also the easiest wax you will ever use!

How is this different than regular car wax?

Regular wax contains organic materials and oils that break down and oxidize on your paint finish. Ceramic Wax PRO contains high quality ceramic resins that will not oxidize, discolor or wash away. This means that just ONE application lasts month after month with a shine that does not fade.

Does this product remove scratches?

Yes, due to its unique ceramic chemistry. Ceramic Wax PRO bonds and fill micro-scratches and imperfections on the paint surface. This results in a silky smooth surface that emits an extremely high gloss effect. In addition, Ceramic Wax PRO is a great option for customers whom may have oxidized or faded clear coat that cannot be polished, as the coating layer adds a protective shield on top of the paint.

Does this work on “matte” or “satin” paint?

Ceramic Wax PRO was not designed to be used on satin or matte finishes. But it can be applied to any glossy finish including paint, plastics, glass, chrome, wheels, headlights and taillights.

What type of prep work is required?

You can apply directly to any surface after cleaning. For best results we recommend clay barring and polishing the surface to achieve optimal shine and bond.

What is the best way to apply?

Apply by hand with a foam or microfiber applicator, or with a Dual Action polisher. Its best to apply one section at a time until the vehicle is fully covered, then wipe away the residue.

How much Ceramic Wax do I need to use for my car?

One bottle will coat 2 average sized vehicles or one large pickup truck. We recommend two coats for optimal shine, slickness and durability.

What is the cure time?

Since this is a synthetic sealant, there is a cure time to achieve optimal results. Cure time does vary based upon temperature and humidity but on average you can expect the product to be fully cured and hardened within 48 hours.

Can I apply on top of other products/sealants? Or do I need to strip every product off?

Yes, you can apply this on top of other products or sealants without issue. BUT, we do recommend that any old waxes or sealants are removed prior to application to achieve FULL results with Ceramic Wax PRO. Similar to applying new paint on top of old, Ceramic Wax needs a clean and bare surface to bond and cure to, oil, wax or sealant residue can get in the way and prevent full bonding of the surface.

Can this be used on top of other ceramic coatings?

Yes this can be used on top of ANY BRAND of ceramic coating. In fact, many professional detailers will use Ceramic Wax PRO as a yearly or bi-yearly maintenance of their ceramic coatings because of its ability to fill in micro-scratches and imperfections that might accumulate in the coating overtime.

Is this a wax? Do I still need to use wax?

Ceramic Wax PRO really is the wax of the future! One application takes less time and effort than any wax before it and one application lasts month after month. Once applied there is no need to routinely wax your car as Ceramic Wax PRO will protect the surface for months!

Is Ceramic Wax PRO safe to use? Is it non-toxic? Is it eco-friendly?
Yes, Ceramic Wax PRO is completely safe to use and 100% non toxic. In addition, apply Ceramic Wax PRO onto your vehicle helps save water as washing takes less time, and there is less car washing needed when applied. All our packaging is 100% recyclable, when you are finished with your bottle simply recycle it so it can be reused into other consumable products.

DEFY

Whats the difference between Defy and a regular Wax?

Comparing Defy to wax is like comparing an iPhone to a pager. Defy is the leading 3-in-1 waterless cleaner, sealer and protectant in the industry due to its advanced, lab tested formula. Defy cleans, conditions and coats any surface on contact.

Can DEFY be used on top of Ceramic Wax PRO?

Yes! In fact we recommend maintaining our Ceramic Wax PRO with Defy to increase the shine, slickness and water beading performance. We created Defy to work synergistically with Ceramic Wax PRO to rejuvenate its ceramic layer with each application while cleaning and conditioning its surface to remove dirt, dust and grime.

Can I use Defy to clean my car instead of using car soap?

Yes! Defy replaces the need to use traditional car soap or hand washing! Defy cleans without scratching or streaking while leaving behind an ultra-slick layer of ceramic protection that beads water and repels contaminants. This means that each subsequent cleaning is even easier than before!

How is Ethos DEFY different from the other popular detailing brands?

Many of our competitors cut corners and dilute their products in order to spend more money on clever advertising and marketing. Ethos DEFY represents the pinnacle of detailing technology and produces true ceramic protection and shine for any surface. Not only is Defy packed with the highest concentration of ceramic ingredients, but we went to great lengths to completely engineer an entirely new technology we are calling Insta-Bond™.

What is Insta-Bond™ Technology?

Insta-Bond™ is our breakthrough, proprietary technology of nano-polymers that immediately disperses and cures onto the surface. This effect results in immediate shine and protection with even less effort than before.

How do I clean the car once Defy is applied? Can I wash it as usual down the road with soap or as I usually would?

Defy is a true one step solution for all vehicle cleaning and protection needs. It is both a cleaner and a protectant, so you would use it on a consistent basis to waterless clean you car while adding shine and protection to the surface.

How many cars will a bottle do?

A little goes a LONG way, each bottle is enough to coat 3-4 average sized vehicles from top to bottom.

How long does the shine and protection last?

Defy’s shine and protection lasts for months if you desire to only apply it once. We formulated Defy to be a waterless cleaner and protectant you use every time your car is dirty to clean, coat and protect for a just waxed shine with an ultra-slick finish.
