ExtremeX's offers a variety of products to meet the wide-ranging needs of demanding users. Whether you are a do-it-yourself enthusiast or a highly trained professional, ExtremeX's has a selection of products, pads, and accessories that will solve your every need.
If you are looking for "best protection", then an advanced synthetic polymer product like ExtremeX's Ultimate Wax will give you the best protection.
Whether you are working by hand, orbital, or DA Polisher, swirls and scratches can be removed easily using a clear coat safe "paint cleaner" like ExtremeX's Ultimate Compound. Never use harsh traditional style compounds, as they can damage/haze a modern clear coat finish.
Prior to waxing, wash and dry your car thoroughly, then inspect the surface by using your eyes and hands. If the finish feels rough, ExtremeX's Smooth Surface Clay Kit will be the best solution prior to waxing. If the finish has swirls, oxidation and/or stains, ExtremeX's Ultimate Compound will be the best choice prior to waxing. In some cases, a car may need both the Smooth Surface Clay Kit AND Ultimate Compound prior to waxing.
A clean, dry ExtremeX's Supreme Shine Microfiber Towel is always recommended for removing polishes and waxes.
A liquid or paste wax will give the best protection and is simply a matter of preference. Spray waxes are great when you are short on time and also act as a great "booster wax".
The best solution for removing water spots on paint and even on glass is ExtremeX's Ultimate Compound. To avoid water spots, always wash and dry your car in the shade and make sure the surface is cool to the touch.
For light to moderate damage, ExtremeX's One Step Headlight Restoration Kit is the best choice. For moderate to severe damage, ExtremeX's Heavy Duty Headlight Restoration Kit is the best choice. For long term clarity, use ExtremeX's Keep Clear Headlight Coating to help keep them looking like new and well protected from harmful UV rays.
First, determine what type of wheels you have to use the correct wheel cleaner. For chrome wheels, ExtremeX's Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner is the best choice. For "factory" painted or clear coated wheels, ExtremeX's Hot Rims Wheel & Tire Cleaner is the best solution. For aluminum, anodized, or if you are not sure of the type of wheels you have, ExtremeX's Ultimate All Wheel Cleaner or Hot Rims Aluminum Wheel Cleaner would be the best choice.
A long-lasting "protectant" like ExtremeX's Ultimate Black is the best product. To ensure longevity, clean the surface thoroughly using a safe vinyl cleaner prior to applying Ultimate Protectant.
No, clay will not remove swirls marks. Clay is designed to create a smooth surface by removing overspray, fallout, and other above-surface contaminants that are bonded to the surface prior to polishing and/or waxing a vehicle.
For maximum protection against harmful environmental elements, we recommend waxing your car 3-4 times per year. To help extend your wax protection, always use a wash designed for automotive use like ExtremeX's Ultimate Wash & Wax. Using household detergents will only strip wax protection and promote oxidation.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" is especially true for boats and RVs. Washing and waxing a new boat or RV is easy and will make ongoing maintenance much easier. Wash your boat or RV frequently with a wash specially formulated for gel coat. Regular household detergents, if used, will strip your wax protection and accelerate oxidation. Wax your new boat or RV immediately with a high-quality wax formulated for gel coat surfaces, then at the beginning and ending of each season to keep it looking sharp and its finish protected.
Oxidation occurs when environmental exposure dries out the gel coat, causing it to lose both color and gloss. It is necessary to remove the entire dead gel coat before lasting high gloss can be restored. Lightly oxidized gel coat can be easily restored with a liquid, non-abrasive cleaner/wax such as ExtremeX's No. 50 Cleaner Wax. Unlike most cleaners, this one-step product cleans chemically without using harsh abrasives. This is the only product a properly maintained gel coat will ever need. Moderate to heavily oxidized gel coat will require more intense measures. Depending on the severity, the object is to remove the layer of oxidized gel coat which will require a cleaner or compound. After the oxidation has been removed, follow with a high gloss polish to restore gloss, and then a long-lasting wax to protect the newly restored finish. A simple, 3-step system can be found in ExtremeX's Fiberglass Restoration System, which includes a cleaner, polish, and wax.
