With its new and improved technologically advanced formula, Tech Wax 2.0 glides on and wipes off effortlessly to visually eliminate fine swirls and micro-scratches, producing unbelievably deep, vibrant color and a dramatically clear wet-look.

What Does Hydrophobic Mean?
The word “Hydrophobic” literally means “water-fearing”. This new breakthrough technology builds an incredible protection on a vehicle’s surface that causes water to bead up and glide off a paint finish, wash after wash. It’s new, it’s powerful, and it’s a scientific breakthrough.
Before Waxing – Preparing The Vehicles Paint Surface
For best results, it is recommended to start with a freshly washed and clayed vehicle. Use any Meguiar’s wash, like Ultimate Wash and Wax and Meguiar’s Smooth Surface Clay Kit to remove any above the surface contaminants from the paint.
Waxing With Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0
After preparing the vehicle for waxing, the vehicle should have a deep, wet, high gloss finish and be nearly defect free. The vehicle’s paint should also feel silky smooth. Waxing will allow preserving that high gloss finish by applying a wax or sealant. The word "Sealant" is a common used term in detailing and is another way of describing a wax product that is fully synthetic, like Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0. That is to say that all the ingredients are man made and the product doesn't actually contain any natural wax. Sealants utilize the latest technology in paint protection and will generally outlast a carnauba based wax.
A Few Tips About Applying NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0
One of the biggest mistakes people make when applying a wax is that they apply it too heavily. This only prolongs drying time, makes the wax more difficult to remove, and uses more product than necessary. No matter how heavy a wax is applied, once it's dry only so much will adhere or bond to the paint of the vehicle.
Always allow a wax or sealant to fully cure before removing it, Meguiar's recommends that using the “Swipe Test” to determine when to remove the wax. To perform the swipe test simply swipe a clean, dry fingertip across the freshly applied layer of wax. If it streaks or is smeary in the area where it was swiped, then the wax has not fully dried and should not yet be removed. However, if the area is clear and glossy, then the wax is dry and can be removed with a clean, dry microfiber polishing cloth, like Meguiar's Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel or a 100% cotton terry towel. Please be aware that low temperatures and/or high humidity can prolong the drying time of any wax.
