RGS Labs Inc.® has dedicated many years to research and development within the world of professional motorsport. Combining their expert knowledge with an insistence on innovation they bring you the world’s most renowned waterless car cleaning product: FW1 Cleaning Wax.

FW1 Cleaning Wax was originally designed to save time in the world of motor racing, where seconds decide champions. But it is no longer a trade secret and now you can be a champion too!

Traditional car washing not only wastes precious time but can also consume 100’s of litres of water per car wash, sending detergents, grease, dirt and oil down the drain straight into our water systems and eventually spilling into our oceans.

That’s why FW1 Cleaning Wax carries the Smart Approved Watermark as a product that meets the fundamentals of water conservation, which continues to be an issue of extreme importance in Australia.

FW1 Cleaning Wax leaves nothing behind but a showroom finish on your car, motorcycle, truck, caravan, motorhome, boat/personal watercraft, bicycle and even your kitchen sink!

How Often Should FW1 Fastwax Be Used On My Car?

Depending on how often you use your car and the weather conditions we recommend using FW1 Fastwax every 4-6 weeks. Regular use of FW1 protects your car and keeps it looking cleaner longer. To clean and wax an average sized vehicle takes less than 30 minutes and one can will do that same car 2 – 4 times! Save time, money and water! It’s just that simple. FW1 cleans and “establishes” the high performance wax qualities on your vehicle. As you learn the wonders of FW1 and how to get the look you desire, the amount of cleans per can will increase. FW1 will do up to 3 applications for large vehicles and up to 5 applications for small vehicles. 

What If It Rains Just After My Car Has Been Applied With FW1 Fastwax? 

FW1 Fastwax doesn’t just wash, it also polishes and protects your car, when it rains the water will bead off the surface of your car. Just grab a chamois or microfibre cloth and wipe away the water droplets – your car is protected and still looks great. 

My Paint Has Feather or Swirl Like Scratches – Can FW1 Fastwax Help This?

Washing a car with water only removes some of the superficial dirt, but small particles of dirt remain on the surface of the paint. When you use a sponge or a chamois over your paint you are actually grinding this dirt into your paint – this over time is what causes “feather/swirl like scratches”. FW1 Fastwax uses a unique combination of Lubricants and Carnauba wax which combine to lift the dirt and grime away from paint. This encapsulates the dirt and lubricates the panel so that the dirt is removed with a cleaning cloth without scratching. Regular use of FW1 not only makes the feather scratches less visible but the protective coating applied during the process actually reduces the damage that dirt and even traditional water washing can do to your paint.
