Anyone every used Collinite products? My son worked with a detailer adn that's what they used. Just curious how it compares to Adams.
Thanks

Collinite 845 wax is awesome. What is good about it, for a liquid wax it is pure wax in a bottle. No precleaner no nutting just good old wax. The thing you have to consider though is that Collinite is only a wax so it is only as good as the prep work before hand.

As far as comparing it to Adams Machine wax or Buttery Wax, as everyone know I am a Adams fan, 110% of the time I will buy Collinite without second guessing.

Now with that said Adams does have a good system that works for a lot of people.

I love some of the Adam's products, but I'm all about the Collinite 845 also. If you google around enough, especially checking out sites like autogeek.net and autopia.org you'll find some members that test different types of wax on the same car for months and Collinite usually comes out on top or close to it. Plus you can't beat the price on the stuff.

Comparison test after test it always comes out as one of the most durable.

Alot of the detailers call the last step LSP - last step protection. Getting "it" to look good is done in the previous steps of cleaning and polishing. After these steps I want protection and Collinite delivers better than anything I have used.

Great thanks. Picking up some Adams stuff this weekend but I heard I have some Collinite kicking around so we'll have to give it a try when we get done with the cleaning.
