Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 introduces a new dimension of gloss and protection. 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. With the addition of Meguiar's proprietary Hydrophobic Polymer Technology, NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0, provide with relentless water beading wash after wash, a flawless “show car perfect” shine, and effortless application which glides on and off easily for a slick finish.
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.
Applying NXT Generation Tech WAX 2.0
For best results, apply in the shade to a clean, cool surface one section at a time, allowing 3-5 minutes before removing Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0.
- 1. Using the included applicator, apply a strip of Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 directly onto the waxing pad.
- 2. Place the face of the pad flat on the vehicle’s paint and with light pressure in overlapping, circular patterns spread the wax onto the vehicle’s paint surface.
- 3. A second pass over is recommended to insure even coverage. Let dry for 3 – 5 minutes before wiping of with a clean Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel, turning to a clean side for the final wipe.
- 4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 as needed to complete the rest of the vehicle.
By Dual Action Polisher Or DA Power System
- 1. Attach the appropriate “waxing” pad to the Meguiar’s DA Power System or Meguiar’s DA Polisher.
- 2. Apply a strip of Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 directly onto the waxing pad.
- 3. Place the face of the pad flat on the paint. Turn on the Meguiar’s DA Power System drill or Meguiar’s DA Polisher and begin buffing with moderate pressure in an overlapping pattern while keeping the pad flat against the paint at all times.
- 4. Apply additional Meguiar’s NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 as needed and let dry for 3 – 5 minutes.
- 5. Wipe off with a clean Meguiar’s Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel, turning to a clean side for the final wipe.
- 6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 as needed to complete the rest of the vehicle.

CONS: Doesn't last very long compared to other sealants, shine fades quickly, product stains trim
I applied NXT 2.0 after washing/drying, claying my car with Meguiar's clay kit, and cleaning/polishing with Meguiar's ColorX. The product is easy to apply and remove, although you have to be careful not to get it on the trim as it will leave white residue. The initial shine was great and the paint felt very slick. It does a remarkably good job of hiding swirl marks and tiny imperfections in the paint, it gives a really smooth look. Rain sheets right off which is great because then you don't get water spots. It is definitely the best Meguiar's wax I've used.
What I don't like about NXT is that the shine fades much too quickly. I would say it wore off after a few rain showers within the first month. At 7 weeks now, the paint still feels somewhat slick but water doesn't really sheet as well and the product seems to be wearing off. In my opinion, NXT 2.0 is definitely the best wax available on the shelves at your local Walmart or Target. If you are like me and prefer the look of a synthetic wax as compared to a carnauba blend this product will not disappoint you with its shine. You will have to wax (or instant detail) often though to maintain a good look. There are other sealants available that last much longer for only a bit more money and in my opinion offer a superior look as well. They also can be applied to trim without staining. My recommendation is to give NXT 2.0 a try and compare it to other waxes that you like. I personally need something that can last me through 4-5 months of a harsh New England winter where I won't have a chance to do any detailing. For that I usually go with Klasse AIO/SG.
The paint doesn't collect as much dust as with meguiars gold, which is a great benefit.
The paint seems just as protected as using the Meguiars gold.
Has more of a clean shine to the paint like a new car would.
Goes on easy, you dont need as much wax.
Does not fill hairline scratches at all, Meguires gold seems to cover things as it is thicker and builds up.
If your car is not new and has scratches or spiderwebbing, you need to use a scratch remover polish first.
Conclusion, For new cars this is a perfect wax. For older cars with more blemishes more work is needed before application of this wax. Overall I will continue to use this wax. I won't be throwing out the Gold though, it is still a great wax too.
Compared to Meguiar's G18216 Ultimate Liquid Wax:
Meguiar's NXT Generation Tech Wax 2.0 highlights that experience. I didn't want to like this wax/sealant as much as ones I paid thirty, forty, or fifty dollars to buy. However, the results were obvious. On my vehicles, this is the best wax/sealant I have ever used.
For optimum results I strongly encourage you before apply NXT 2.0, clay your car, clean with a paint cleaner (i.e. Scratch X or Deep Crystal Step 1), polish with a pure polish (Deep Crystal Step 2 or #7 Show Car Polish), and then apply this wax. The results are truly remarkable.
To maintain your shine, remove loose dirt and contaminants with Quick Exterior Detailer, or Ultimate Exterior Detailer.
Meguiar's keeps delivering the good stuff, and I'm a fan.
