Thank You for your interest in Zaino Bros' Show Car Polish Products.
I am a custom painter by trade for over thirty years.
I am very familar with Dupont and PPG and all other paints.
Todays paint technology uses a chemical reaction caused by a catalyst
to cure the paint. Factory paint is fully cured in 36 to 48 hours.
Zaino contains no Wax, Harmful Silicones or Abrasives.....
The funny thing is that this same dealer who tells you to wait 30 days
before waxing, usually puts a coat of wax on your car when he preps
it. Sounds a little contradicting. Don't you think???
Polish your car as soon as you get it. That factory paint is already
cured and needs protection against airborne contaminants and UV rays.
Your paint is clear coat....
