      Info required about wax

      Hi GearHeads, especially fordfan :
      Wanted to understand if I can use a teeny bit of ABRO Super Gold Paste Wax on glass surfaces on my ride?
      Inputs, thoughts, suggestions, comments, welcome.

      TIA.

      Depends on the product if that is how it has been engineered or not, in most such cases it will clearly mention what surfaces it can go on...Another factor is when you have a nice/expensive wax which you like, applying on glass maybe a waste of product/money

      If you want to experiment, would suggest avoid the windshield (wipers anyway are going to remove it the first time they are used) and do a small section on one of the side glasses and remove and observe a while before going for the rest

      And do apply it on cool washed and dried glass and try and avoid the plastic trims if trying it out

      better still to go for something synthetic like some glass sealant / paint sealant and such (again depending on what surfaces the manufacturer says the paint sealant can be used on)...why because wax sits on top forming a layer, while sealant tries and bonds to the underlying substrate

      3M uses their liquid wax on windscreen in Dealerships. Personally I agree with fordfan it would be better to use products made for windscreen rather than experimenting. You will also have to keep in mind the glare of on coming cars during night travel. Some waxes distort vision as the light gets dispersed due to the ingredients used and you get blinded. Better to drive safe than be sorry.

      Try Proklear from PROKLEAR. It's great for glasses.
