Regularly applying a car wax or synthetic paint sealant will keep your paint looking sharp and vibrant, for as long as you own the vehicle. Carnauba waxes and synthetic paint sealants blanket your vehicle with a glossy shell of protection that resists UV rays and airborne contaminants. All BLACKFIRE car waxes and synthetic paint sealants are easy to apply and remove.
What’s the difference between a car wax and a synthetic paint sealant? It’s quite simple, actually. Car waxes are often comprised of carnauba wax, an all-natural wax that is derived from the leaves of the copernicia prunifera palm tree in Brazil. Carnauba wax is nature’s hardest wax, and it provides excellent UV protection along with a glossy, smooth finish.
A synthetic paint sealant utilizes man-made ingredients. Our flagship synthetic paint sealant, BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection, utilizes a combination of synthetic polymers that offer carnauba-like levels of shine and slickness, in an easy-to-use liquid formula. Synthetic paint sealants typically last longer than a carnauba wax, making them the obvious choice for winter protection, or for those that simply aren’t interested in regularly waxing their vehicle.
Another option is to apply a carnauba wax on top of a synthetic paint sealant. This gives you the best of both worlds – the durable protection of a sealant, and the dripping wet reflections of a carnauba wax. For years people have been laying BLACKFIRE Midnight Sun Carnauba Paste Wax on top of Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection. It has become so popular that we decided to call this award-winning combination the “Wet-Ice Over Fire.”
