30ml jars last much longer than you'd think - 3 to 4 layers on average and even up to 8 or 9 on smaller cars - and when the wax is a durable hybrid like Blue Velvet Pro, well, the news keeps getting better and better. With proper prep, two layers and sympathetic maintenance, we reckon you'll get 3 to 5 months durability from Blue Velvet Pro. That means about 6 to 18 months protection for your paintwork in real terms from just one tiny 30ml pot.Who ever said that hand made 'boutique' car waxes were too expensive?
So what is a hybrid? Well, in simple terms, it's a mix of wax and sealant. This Blue Velvet Pro recipe is like a supercharged Blue Velvet; we combined the original wax with the same sealant found in Red Mist to give it more oomph (a technical measure of gloss).
Expect a 2-4% dye tint on paintwork - it won't be that noticeable but it is there and it does darken the original finish. Metallics/pearlescents are going to enjoy the best results here. Recoating interval is a recommended 3-5 months.
Hard vs Soft Wax - which is the one for you? Whilst many of our waxes have a standard consistency, we make some of our waxes a little firmer or softer than normal. Softer waxes are easier to spread by palm or fingertips. Hard waxes often cure faster and go further, because they are less likely to be accidentally over-applied. Both contain similar amounts of carnauba and beeswax and performance will be similar. Harder waxes may cure better if you are new to waxing, so these may seem to offer more performance. And soft waxes may feel glossier due to their 'sorbet' like texture. It often comes down to personal preference - there's no right or wrong with wax texture, it just comes down to what you like.
