Which is better paste wax or liquid wax?

Herein, does paste wax last longer than liquid wax?

Re: Paste wax lasts longer than liquid wax Mike has stated most people use liquid as it's easier to apply with a DA/Rotary. I look at it this way, wiping it onto the paint pretty much melts it down to the same consistency anyway. Then they both cure the same.

Similarly, how long does paste wax last? Carnauba waxes often offer stronger protection than sealants do, but will not last as long. Waxes typically last 3 to 8 weeks, where a sealant can last up to 6 months. Carnauba waxes often bead water better than sealants, which makes your vehicle easier to maintain.

Similarly, you may ask, is spray wax as good as paste wax?

A spray wax is much easier to apply evenly to a vehicle's exterior. A paste wax takes longer to apply, but can also last longer as well as provide better protection. A paste wax creates a better layer of protection for your vehicle which can be extremely useful during those harsh winter OR summer months.

What is liquid wax used for?

Liquid Waxes Good for cleaning, gloss, and durability. But they can be more difficult to apply evenly and buff out. Most dry to a haze within about a minute, but this varies with wind, sunlight, and thickness of application.
