This question has been always on my mind ever since I have been introduced reducing orange peel via velvet pad compounding.
A fairly new car in to get all surfaces protected with GTechniq coatings.
Good day everyone! Here are some photos from the latest Do-It-Together(DIT) held last Saturday at Osren. There were many products and machines lying around, and Osren’s company car which was due for a respray. That could only mean one thing, ‘whack only!’.
We’re most exposed to auto detailing in the west, i.e. from Europe and the U.S., product discussions normally stem around products from those region. What about the other technologically advance country in the east? Japan.
Read on and you’d be surprised at their technologies, efficiency and professionalism.
A great Saturday gathering of Team Hyundai Malaysia members at Osren Malaysia. Featuring the orange peel reducing Osren P40 Compound on a black Hyundai Avante, Osren’s new degreaser, and some Domino’s Pizzaaaaa (one three hundred triple three, triple eight).
So we all know that a waxed surface beads water. If water just lays flat on your paintwork, then it’s time to wax the surface.
But why will a waxed surface bead water in the first place?
Is it naturally occurring because ingredients in the waxes alter the surface energy(low-energy=hydrophobic) and turns it from being hydrophilic to hydrophobic?
Are the ingredients protecting the paintwork(silicones,carnauba, etc.) causing the beading?
Or there are ingredients in the wax dedicated to causing the water to bead?
I try to answer these questions from the perspective of a layman hobbyist detailer. I was curious and searched my university’s journal database on readings about contact angles, wettability, surface protection, etc.
Read on as I try to unravel a detailer’s fascination with water beading!
When it comes to taking the big leap and purchasing a rotary buffer, is it okay to skimp on quality? Can you go by using a cheap Chinese rotary or save and spend on a tried and tested Japanese rotary, the Makita 9227C. MYR 150 vs MYR 900 …. worth skimping on?

Observing water behaviour as a suggestive indicator of paintwork condition.
You will often find many users on detailing forums asking which wax is better. Many even go to buy a number of waxes to compare and only find very marginal differences. However, this excessive need to find for the best of something is actually a hindrance to true and practical auto detailing.
