FW1 Australia’s Best Classic Car Polish and Wax Car – Cleaning Products Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

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.

FW1 Cleaning Wax requires NO water; its unique combination of lubricants and carnauba wax lifts dirt and grime away from paint and other non-porous surfaces quickly and easily. 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!

The versatile FW1 Cleaning Wax formula is also perfect for use on vehicle panels, glass, chrome, fibreglass, mirrors, stainless steel, aluminium, non-porous plastics, tiles and more!

How Do You Wash A Car Without Water?

FW1 Fastwax has a unique combination of Lubricants and Carnauba wax which combine to lift the dirt and grime away from paint and other non porous surfaces of your vehicle without harming the surface and leaves nothing behind but a fine film of polish residue which when buffed with a microfibre cloth (recommended) or a soft cloth which reveals a polished and protected surface and a professional show car finish. FW1 is a high performance cleaning wax in an aerosol can. It will not only clean & wax your vehicle but also remove grease, tar, bugs, mildew, road grime, light scratches and tree sap… WITHOUT WATER AND FAST!

FW1 Fastwax – Will It Scratch My Car?

FW1 Fastwax is totally scratch free. Years of intense research and development in the world of professional motor sports has enabled RGS Labs Inc.® to develop FW1. The product is regularly used to clean and protect many luxury cars such as Ferrari and Mercedes-Benz. The carnauba wax in the FW1 encapsulates the dirt and grime lifting it from the surface of your paint, then safely removing the dirt and grime with a clean cloth. 

FW1 has also been the sponsor and recommended cleaning product of Nascar, CR Scuderia and the Aussie Racing Car Series. 

Will FW1 Fastwax Affect My Paint?

FW1 Fastwax was created after many years of research and development, it has been extensively tested and is safe for all paint types including modern clear coats, gel coats (usually on boats) and vehicles with duco paint protection. In Fact FW1 can help, as it removes oxidation and restores faded paint. FW1 contains No alcohol and No Ammonia, No Teflon’s or CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) which are harmful to the environment. This is your “GREEN” solution to cleaning!

Note: The PH Balance of FW1 is just above NEUTRAL

My Car Has Window Tinting, Is That Ok?

Absolutely! FW1 Fastwax works wonderfully on glass and is completely window tint friendly. There is no alcohol or ammonia in FW1.

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 3 – 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. 

I Have Ceramic Coating On My Car. Is It Possible to Apply Wax Over a Ceramic Coating?

The short answer is yes, you can wax over the ceramic coating of a car.

Waxing over your new ceramic coating can provide several benefits for your car.

Firstly, wax can add extra protection to your car’s paint. While ceramic coatings are incredibly durable, they can still be scratched or damaged by specific contaminants. Wax can help to provide an additional layer of protection against these types of hazards.

Secondly, wax can help to enhance the shine of your car’s paint. While ceramic coatings are known for their ability to create a deep, glossy finish, some car enthusiasts prefer the look of wax. Applying wax over a ceramic coating can help to enhance the shine and make your car look even better.

And thirdly, waxing can help your ceramic coating last longer. Ceramic coatings can be harmed by specific chemicals or environmental factors, even though they are made to last for years. You can aid in protecting your ceramic coating and extending its life by adding a protective wax coating on top.

Precautionary Steps Using FW1 with Ceramic Coating: Safety First, Always

While FW1 and ceramic coatings are generally a match made in heaven, we recommend conducting a patch test on an inconspicuous area first where the surface is not a centre of attention. Because your car deserves nothing less than the best, it pays to be sure.

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. 

What Other Things Can I Use FW1 Fastwax On?

FW1 Fastwax is perfect for motorbikes, trucks, boats, caravans, shower screens, kitchen sinks and more!
