Wheel protection with durable effect

In many maintenance guides for alloy wheels a sealant is recommended for maintaining the value and to simplify the cleaning. The care tip from expert Richard Hanauer is the SONAX XTREME Wheel rim coating:

"The easy to use spray from the SONAX XTREME series, in the latest generation based on a further developed hybrid formula, which offers distinct advantages over conventional processes.

The product is thinly applied and neatly distributed with the enclosed polishing cloth – after just one hour drying time a protective coating as hard as glass is formed. Through the binding of organic and inorganic active substances with the wheel rim surface, the product effectively reduces the adhesion of typical dirt types – it effectively repels water, dirt and road salt. And this technology is equally suitable for lacquered aluminium and steel rims as well as chromed or polished wheels. The care effect is additionally impressive due to its visible deep shine.

The protective effect is discernible through a durable lotus effect, which can be observed after driving in the rain or a car wash. As a rule: the sealant will last for up to five vehicle washes in a carwash installation with brush washing. Anyone manually washing lightly soiled wheels, will ascertain an even longer durability. When heavier soiling requires the deployment of a wheel cleaner, another positive effect becomes apparent: Due to the reduced adhesion of dirt, the cleaner can be used very sparingly. The recommended cleaner is SONAX XTREME Wheel cleaner full effect, whose acid free, mild composition is not aggressive."

Brilliant! - Limitless shine

At this time of the year, every car that had to put up with road salt, wet conditions and street dirt during winter can do with a thorough paintwork polish after car wash. Like many others, Olaf G. from Dortmund has the following question: “Which polish is the best for my car’s paint condition in spring?”
These last weeks, there, no doubt, have been several car drivers thinking about the following question that Hubert M. from Berlin sent in: “The windscreen of my car is quite new, but already has some scratches, which are annoying particularly with oncoming lights. Are the scratches a result of ice scraping?”

Maintaining and protecting plastic components

Unpainted plastic components should not be neglected when maintaining the car, otherwise they will prematurely fade and may even become brittle.

Acid-free rim cleaning - thoroughly and material-friendly

Acid containing wheel cleaners can induce corrosion on wheel bolts and metal parts like the brake calipers.
It seems confusing to many motorists, when a winter windscreen cleaner claims to provide freeze protection at minus 60 degrees. In our latitudes it is a rare occurrence to see the thermometer standing at -20 degrees Celsius. Such freeze protection figures are therefore, misleading. Incidentally, these cleaners would be so viscous, even at -40 degrees Celsius, that they could hardly be conveyed through the windscreen washer system.

What to do against „paint killers“

Insect dirt looks horrible and damages the car’s paintwork. These are organic „paint killers“ which can cause serious damage to the paintwork, particularly when exposed to solar radiation. And the longer they cling to the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat into the paintwork surfaces.

Ideal for car care and a good idea for the household.

A short while ago, a colleague informed me that she uses her husband’s car care products in the home. Can that be true, and if so what can I use?“ asks Franziska from Halberstadt.

Remove insects before they damage the paintwork

Insect dirt doesn’t just look nasty – it is an organic „paint destroyer“ that, especially when exposed to the sun, can cause severe damage to the paintwork. And that can prove very expensive, the longer they stick on the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat their way into the paintwork surface.

Cleaning paintwork like the pros

In the coming weeks, many car owners will certainly think about how to best and thoroughly remove typical winter dirt from paint surfaces.
