Black is one of the best colors for any vehicle. Yet, maintaining its gloss and shine is not as easy as compared to other colors. When the imperfections start to pop on your black car’s surface, the look of the car starts to diminish.
This is the reason why waxing black cars is important. Unfortunately, some car owners don’t know much about this.
Top 4 Best Waxes for Black Cars
1. Meguiar’s Ultimate Paste Wax
Meguiar is a company that provides some of the best-detailing products. This one is a synthetic polymer wax that offers a durable coating.
When it comes to performance, this one gets really sweet. Meguiar’s Ultimate Wax offers that deep finish like carnauba wax. This tin comes with 11 oz of wax. As they say in the car wax industry, a little goes a long way. In the case of waxes, you always want to use small amounts to shorten the drying time.
The good thing about this car wax is that it won’t turn plastic and rubber parts hazy white. If you have used carnauba waxes, you probably know how irritating it can be when you go over these parts.
When compared to most carnauba waxes, this synthetic option is definitely cheap. In general, synthetic wax lasts longer than carnauba. So if you’re after an everyday wax for your car, this is a great option. If you’re after car show shine, then scroll down to the last three options.
2. Hybrid Sealant by CarGuys
This synthetic product is here to replace many others. It works as a car wax, polish, and sealant.
It is suitable for pretty much every part of your car and any paint that you use. That means that you can use it on your car’s exterior as well as the interior. This includes glass, fiberglass, plastic parts, and even your rims if you want.
Some people even use this to give their toolboxes a proper finish. We have even seen people use this sealant on their chrome sinks.
With this, you don’t have to obsess about tarnishing other materials. In fact, since it also works as a polish, you can even use it to hide minor scratches.
It offers long-lasting protection for your car and UV protection for your paint. A protective coat should last you anywhere between three and six months. With that said, that will highly depend on your washing and other detailing habits.
The thing we love the most about this wax is the time it takes to wax your car. Believe it or not, most report that they can wax their entire car in 15 minutes.
3. Natural Brilliance Souveran Paste by Pinnacle
This wax offers an incredible finish and beautiful depth of shine. The only biggest pitfall here is the price.
If you are willing to pay a bit more for a top-of-the-line product, you should go with Souveran. It is the car wax most car enthusiasts love to use.
It is a natural wax that comes straight from the best Brazilian ivory carnauba you can get. That is precisely why the Souveran is one of the most popular waxes to use before car shows. So, if you are feeling competitive, go for this one.
If you know what you are doing, you can get a real 3-dimensional look on your car’s finish. In our experience, carnauba wax works best with black cars because the paint gets that shimmery deep finish that most people are after.
Using this wax is amazing. It almost feels as if you are spreading warm butter over your car. It is easy and it gets excellent coverage.
4. Carnauba Concours Wax by P21S
If you want a good, deep gloss on a black car, you should always reach for a paste wax, and that is where P21s steps in. They offer incredible results that can compete with top brands for only a fraction of the price.
This is mainly the reason why many detailing professionals go for P21s as their choice.
But, back to the wax. As I said, paste wax will give the best results for black vehicles. It doesn’t matter which exact blend the company is using. You can go with 100% carnauba, a beeswax mix, or even a hybrid between natural and synthetic ingredients. This particular wax is a blend of beeswax and carnauba.
The application itself is as simple and easy as you would want it to be. It is user-friendly, fast, and enjoyable. Simply open the jar, take the applicator pad out and get to it.
5. Wolfgang Fuzion Carnauba Polymer
The Wolfgang Fuzion lies somewhere between the price tags of Pinnacle’s Souveran and the P21s.
This handcrafted blend of a high-tech polymer and natural carnauba wax brings home the best of both worlds. You will have the shine and the depth of the carnauba wax, with the extreme protection of high-tech polymers.
Straight out of the box, this one smells great. At first impression, the wax may look too hard. But, as soon as you begin working with the applicator pad, everything will go as smoothly as it should.
When it comes to the depth and the gloss, you are sure to be happy with the results. It gives that excellent wet look many people seem to chase. Also, the finish has the necessary depth to it.
But, you might wonder why you should buy this product when it has the same benefits as P12s Concours. Well, the polymer content in this product means that the coating will last longer and provide better UV protection.
Finding a good balance is hard, it usually comes down to cost-effectiveness. In the end, choosing the best option is a highly subjective thing, and it’s up to you.
So, if you’re after something that is cheap and results in a long-lasting wax, then the former two options will work for you.
