Is the hard wax (476) a tougher breed than Waxpol?
Thanks for that.

Not used Waxpol, but from what I have read it takes similar energy to apply. I have stuck with the 845 in England and only used the 476 in India. I was in India for 3 weeks so not long enough to give an opinion.

Personally having tried 845 and 476, I will stick with 845. its much easier to apply, lasts a while and there is enough in the bottle for me to get 2 years coverage.

Just ordered Collinite 845 from Sanjay; great communication so far. He is going to send it by today, so hopefully will receive it by end of this week... keeping my fingers crossed as of now, and desperately waiting to try my hands on it.

Yesterday I got delivery collinite 845, Today I tested it on small surface and truly the results are just amazing. Now I couldn't wait for Clay, Scratch/Swirl removal, MF Cloths to complete the detailing cycle.

Thank you Team-BHP, Sanjay.

All the best, Which clay are you planning to use? I would wish to buy it and try.

But so far in Bangalore I couldn't find it at places I visit normally. Suggestions please.

Tech Wax is a sealant- gives more smoothness on application. Collinite is a pure wax, i too felt that it does not leave the surface as smooth. In fact all megs products i have found to leave the surface smoother than the rest for some reason

Exactly!!

I too observed that though it might look nice after 845 it feels 'grabby' and not exactly slick!

And the egg gyrate structure of the carnauba catches more dust and pollen as compared to a sealant!!!

Oops! Typo!

I meant Egg grate structure!

This mesh-like structure allows the exine or barbs of the pollen to gain a hold and adheres to a natural wax better than a synthetic polymer.
Damn pollen and dust!!

I also got to know that Tech Wax is abrasive while collinite is not, That could be the reason behind better finishing by Tech Wax?

Tested the Collinite 845 wax almost 2 weeks back. Its very easy to use and the results are really great on my NHC. Even after daily wash and running in the heavy monsoon, the wax affect is still there. Here is the sample pictures taken after 2wks of applying single layer of 845. (Pictures are just after a waterwash, you can see water dripping from the rear view mirror)

PS : Please forgive the picture quality, its all stills taken from my handycam.

I think all in all this most probably proves that Collinite no. 845 does stands the harsh Indian conditions. One more consumer added in line for this great product. Next lot of my CC products will definitely have this wax.

Expecting collinite 845 to be delivered to me this week. I need to wait for one more week though to have it applied on my SWIFT, as I will be driving down to Bangalore this weekend.
