Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine best product in Auto Bild and GTÜ test

10 February 2016 –The test ofthe German magazines “Auto Bild Sportscars” and “Auto Bild” in co-operation with the German Society for Technical Inspection (GTÜ) put six modern polymer-based paintwork sealing products on trial.Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine scored the highest rating and came off as test winner.

Polymer-based paintwork sealings are a modern alternative to the classical car wax. They ensure brilliance, fresher colours, and produce a very resistant protective layer characterised by an excellent long-term effect. They protect the paintwork against salt, dirt and climatic influences. Thus, brilliance and preservation can be maintained considerably.

Six paintwork sealing products based on synthetic polymers were tested. With a score of “highly recommended” Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine Hybrid NPT won the test. Most points could be scored for the effect in terms of colour restoration, for homogeneity, for brilliance, and primarily for the preserving effect. Results: Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine produced the best colour restoration and the best brilliance. In addition, the Sonax development proved to achieve a very good to good preserving effect even after ten car washes. Other products in test only preserved the paintwork for up tofive car washes and revealed considerable weaknesses in terms of their sealing efficency, which consequently was only minimal.

The Sonax formula to success

The “Auto Bild” and GTÜ test winner contains a formula developed in the Sonax laboratories that repels dirt and dust for months. The impressing water-repellent effect testifies to best paint protection – even after many washes: Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine preserves the paintwork for as many as six months.This is achieved by the enhanced preservation formula with the name “Hybrid NetProtection Technology”. At Sonax, “hybrid” describes the interaction of specific inorganic and organic components. In Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine, these combine to a robust, stable and weatherproof net, which enhances the paintwork and envelops the surface like a protective shield. The product has been developed for pure preservation and care of new and thoroughly cleaned paint surfaces – the formula contains no abrasives.

Its application is very easy

Sonax Xtreme Protect+Shine is applied very easily: an application sponge saves time and makes the application convenient; for streak-free polishing, Sonax recommends a microfibre cloth. The high-quality aids are part of Sonax’ range of brand-name accessories and ensure ideal application.

The test results are published in Auto Bild 5/2016 on 5 February 2016 and Auto Bild Sportscars 3/2016.
