What is it? - Liquid carnauba wax.
What does it do? - Provides long lasting protection and creates a high gloss shine on cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles, and aircraft.
When do you use it? - After first washing and drying cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles, and aircraft in excellent condition or as a last step process after first performing any necessary paint correction.
Why use 3D Carnauba Wax over other options? - Our liquid carnauba wax is the real deal. This means it’s genuine Brazilian #1 grade carnauba wax that has been correctly emulsified into a useable liquid formula. In its natural state, carnauba wax is hard, you wouldn’t be able to apply it to your car’s paint. While there are all kinds of ways to break carnauba down into a paste or liquid form that can then be spread by hand or machine, unless this is done the proper way, you lose the actual and realized benefits of this natural wax. The chemists at 3D know the proper and correct way to take natural Brazilian wax and convert it into a usable form without modifying or changing the wax itself where there would be a negative effect.
More than carnauba - The chemists at 3D also know that while Carnauba is a great natural wax, it can be made better by blending it with other man-made or synthetic ingredients to extend the protection it provides while adding even more positive features and benefits such as resistance to chemical attack, water proofing and water repelling and great protection from the sun’s UV rays.
While the protection aspects of 3D’s unique and also proprietary carnauba wax formula are important, our chemists also know that what all of us really like about a traditional carnauba wax is the warm glow it imparts and how it brings out the full richness of color. Plus, how it makes the metallic flake in metallic paints pop!

IMPORTANT: Always work on a cool, clean surface in the shade. Always shake liquid waxes well before and during use.
Step 1: Pour a quarter size drop of wax onto the face of a clean foam or microfiber applicator pad.
Step 2: Starting at the highest point of the car, usually the roof, using an overlapping circular motion, spread the wax over a section of paint about 2’ by 2’. The goal is to apply a uniform thin layer of wax over 100% of the paint with no missed spots. Repeat this to the rest of the panel and add more wax to your applicator as needed.
After you have applied a thin, uniform layer of wax to the first panel, continue applying to the rest of the vehicle panel-by-panel until the entire vehicle has a thin, uniform layer of wax.
Step 3: After the wax has dried to a haze, normally around 15 to 20 minutes, remove the wax beginning with the panel where you first applied the wax and then following your path-of-travel, gently and carefully removing the wax using a clean, soft microfiber towel. Turn the towel over or fold to a clean side often. For best results, use plenty of clean, dry soft microfiber towels.
By orbital polisher
Step 1: Apply 4-5 nickel sized drops of product to the face of the pad.
Step 2: Starting at the highest point of the vehicle, usually the roof, turn you polisher to a slow to medium speed setting and spread the product over one panel at a time. Use an overlapping crosshatch pattern and ensure each square inch of paint is covered with wax. Add more wax as needed. The goal is to apply a uniform thin layer of wax over 100% of the paint with no missed spots.
Step 3: After the wax has dried to a haze, normally around 15 to 20 minutes, remove the wax beginning with the panel where you first applied the wax and then following your path-of-travel, gently and carefully remove the wax using a clean, soft microfiber towels. Turn the towel over or fold to a clean side often. For best results, switch to a clean, dry microfiber towel often.
Professional Technique Tips
When using a non-cleaning wax like 3D Carnauba Wax, there is no need or no benefit to aggressively working the wax over the paint like you would a compound, a polish or an AIO like 3D SPEED.
A non-cleaning wax also called a show car wax, or a finishing wax is for the sole purpose of providing protection to the paint while adding gloss and shine. For this reason, the technique is one of simply but thoroughly spreading the wax over the surface where it can bond through the drying process.
If the paint on your vehicle is not in new, like-new, or excellent condition then perform the necessary paint correction steps first with detailing clay, compounds and polishes or use and AIO like 3D SPEED.
When removing the wax off your vehicle, start on the panel where you first applied the wax, usually the roof and then remove panel by panel following your original path-of-travel.
