SOFT99 Fusso Coat Wax was first introduced to the UK market in 2014, and created quite a stir thanks to its outstanding performance characteristics and affordable price point. Since then, its popularity has continued to soar, and it's scooped up numerous awards in best sealant and wax tests conducted both within the detailing community and by mainstream automotive media outlets. And no wonder; it really does deliver class-leading durability and ridiculously good water beading, which not only looks incredible but also helps to keep protected surfaces cleaner for longer in between routine washes. However, in order to get the best out of it, there's a few important things to note. Firstly, despite its name, SOFT99 Fusso Coat Wax isn't a wax in the true sense of the term, as it doesn't contain any naturally derived waxes (e.g. carnauba). Rather, it comprises a fluorine polymer ('fusso' means 'fluorine' in Japanese) suspended in a synthetic petroleum-based paste. Therefore, it is actually a polymer-based sealant, and will only adhere properly to oil-free surfaces (see the How To Use section below for more details) or itself (it can be layered). It is best to think of it then as either a standalone last step product, or a basecoat that can be topped with other sealants and waxes. Secondly, because it hardens significantly as it dries out and cures, it's important to apply it as thinly and evenly as possible, and to buff it off within the specified time period (again, see the How To Use section below for more details); try to keep the old adage of less is more in mind as you work. As long as you follow these tips we're sure you'll love it as much as we do. Did we mention the ridiculously good water beading?!
