Marketed as a once a year car polish, Nu Finish car wax also happens to be a classic case of the industry being inconsistent with use of terminology; is this product a polish, wax, or sealer? Unfortunately, there exist much inconsistent use of terms within the world of car care; even professionals with years of experience will often use terms incorrectly. Developed by the Reed-Union Corporation back in the early 70's, this company continues to create new products as it leverages its brand identity and name recognition. I have personally tested this product and was pleased with the overall experience and results.
"The entire subject of car waxes is an endless game of chasing your tail. From carnauba based natural car waxes, to synthetic car sealants. Endless opinions from driveway detailers to so-called experts... it's enough to make your head explode!"
So now you know what I think about the subject any time I am required to talk on the matter of car waxes, polishes, sealants, etc.
The simple answer is YES. And if all you are looking for is something that works, then you need not go any further.
But what exactly "works" about this car polish that isn't a car polish?
The simple answer is because there are far better alternatives. Alternatives that should be based on the type of person you are and the type of car you are trying to wax or seal or polish.
Without overloading you with endless choices as alternatives to this NuFinish car polish, I am going to limit it to two of my favorites when it comes to what I would consider an apples and apples comparison:
Mothers FX Synwax 16 oz.
Menzerna Power Lock Polymer Paint Sealant 16 oz.
The (2) alternative's to Nu Finish are closely matched. With that said, as professional I use the Menzerna's product even though it is almost 3 times as expensive. I find it is somewhat easier to use (slightly) and covers/hides blemishes, imperfections, spider-webbing, better than the SynWax does on dark and black paints.
For those (2) reasons, I lean towards the Menzerna. But if you are not an over-thinker, and especially if you have a light colored car, the Mother's would be more than sufficient for you.
There are almost endless choices when it comes to car paint sealants like all the products we have discussed on this page. You can spend endless hours researching and reading the endless stream of opinions...if that lights your shorts on fire, then by all means, spend the rest of your day searching and reading!
If you have a dark colored car, then I recommend you visit my best car waxes page. (The link will open in a new window)
