Car Wax: Just Like Other Waxes or Something Different
Wax is wax, or is it? Is the substance in the jar of car wax the same stuff you light when you want to make your house smell better? Landmark Cadillac wants you to know exactly what you're putting on your vehicle.
All waxes are similar in that they're hard hydrocarbons when at room temperature. But, there are differences depending on their uses. For instance, the substance used to make your car shine and protect it from the elements can be made from a natural substance or be synthetic. Car wax also includes solvents and oils, which are needed to make the wax malleable enough to spread on your car. These add-ins vary greatly, and car waxes may have more than one kind of wax mixed in.
Come by our Springfield location to learn more about car wax and get your car serviced.
