Swissvax Opaque


We Say

Swissvax Opaque was developed by Swissvax in response to matt effect paint and vinyl wrap finishes becoming an increasingly popular option on brand new cars. Given that matt finishes are delicate and easily damaged by conventional carnauba waxes (which are fundamentally designed to enhance gloss), Swissvax created a new wax formula that offers long-lasting protection and enhanced water repellency without degrading the underlying matt effect. This formula, called Swissvax Opaque, is extremely easy to use and delivers an unobtrusive finish that enhances the natural beauty of matt finishes and exhibits similar water beading and durability as conventional carnauba waxes. If your car has a matt effect finish and you like using waxes, Swissvax Opaque is for you.

Conventional carnauba waxes should not be applied to matt paint finishes and matt vinyl wraps, as they usually contain gloss enhancing components that can permanently degrade the matt effect. Swissvax Opaque is a premium wax containing 40% pure Brazilian No.1 carnauba by volume, with no gloss enhancing oils or extracts. Developed by Swissvax specifically for the care of matt finishes, it provides long-lasting protection against fingerprints, bug splatter and birds droppings without degrading the underlying matt effect. The use of Swissvax Pre-Cleaner Opaque is an essential step before the application of Swissvax Opaque; it is only possible to achieve a perfect finish on matt finishes if they are properly prepared using a matt-specific cleaner.

How To Use

Swissvax Opaque should only be applied by hand. For best results, it should be applied to freshly cleansed paint or vinyl surfaces three to four panels at a time and as thinly and evenly as possible using a Swissvax Foam Applicator Pad. The resulting film should be buffed off within a few minutes of application using either a Swissvax Micro-Fluffy Towel or a Swissvax Micro-Polish Towel; there is absolutely no need to allow the film to dry fully before it is removed.
