Got the packet yesterday. I applied this on the bonnet in the night. Application is quite easy compared with turtle wax premium wax. Gloss is same as that of turtle wax. Will have to wait and see how durable it is. Planning to do one more coat tonight.

Default Collinite Arrived

Dear all,

I got my collinite last week.
Need your advice as to how to proceed?
First i want to do some thing to remove the swirl marks to the minimum possible before applying collinite as these swirl marks are very prominent on black colour.

@dkcrpl; If swirls are such an issue you may have to some light rubbing.

note one thing( have posted on another thread- Car Care Aesthetics in detail)- swirls CANNOT BE REMOVED by hand, only visually hidden. For swirls to be removed a micro layer of paint has to go and that can only happen with a machine(DA or rotary).
With hand,you can use a polishing compound and then a layer of finishing polish and then collnite
Typically something like meguiars ultimate compound or Fomula 1 Scratch Out which will hide the swirls( may have to do 2 passes) and then put collinite
Surface should be clayed to get best results, its a science in its own to get a car to its showroom condition.
Check out pics of my car :

Had waxed my Fabia using Collnite 845 liquid Wax in Jan 2010 , and beading stayed for 6 months.
Waxed again 3 weeks back in July with Collnite hard wax , I found it difficult to apply compared to liquid wax.
Next waxing is with collnite liquid wax in Jan 2011 , I bought 2 bottles from US
Cost Liquid wax $19 and Hard wax $20 including postage from Amazon to US

Nope, AFAIK its not available in shops in Pune.

Check this website www.bringingbest.com, New Delhi, India
Initiate communication with Sanjay and he will let you know how to order.
(Also, If you check some earlier posts/pages you will get some fair idea on cost and ordering process).

well - used collinite 2 weeks back, and when I want for my 3rd free service today - the washing guy asked 'sir what polish do you use?'. Told him that its something imported from US called collinite. Water beading after 2 weeks also is superb!

I have ordered Collinite today through email since the ph number on the site was switched off. I have one question though, which also might be in the wrong thread.

Last week, I had been to a house warming ceremony at T Narsipur close to Mysore where some village kid has written/scratched her name "Sahana" on Hariya's front left fender. The scratch luckily is not too deep and has not touched the primer or the metal underneath it. It is not too wide either.

Can Collinite or any other product help remove it if the rubbing compound that I intend to try at the ASC doesnt remove it? The ASC will demand at least 2k to paint the entire fender otherwise.

Looking foward to any inputs in this area.

Collinite is a insulator wax and IMO does not have abrasive properties.
Use a good quality rubbing compound, and target one small area at a time (say 1 letter) to break it down.

Same thing happened to me last week when my car was covered with dust and some street urchin drew sun, moon etc on the hatch (in the process scratching the paint by fingernails). I used meguiars ultimate compound to totally remove it, then used cleaner wax, and finally topped that up with collinite. Same thing for the hood.
