Absolutely not, Our eco-friendly product is sprayed onto the surface. Special organic polymers dissolve the dirt and grime particles on contact, lifting them from the paint surface to protect from scratching – called encapsulation of dirt and grime. Once the dirt is encapsulated within the product, we gently wipe off the residue with a microfiber cloth leaving behind a fine layer of protective wax. We then buff the surface to a shine using a second microfiber towel. The result is a beautiful shiny finish and a protective glaze making it harder for environmental fallout, acid rain, water spots and any other foreign debris to stick to it.
