Nu Finish Car Polish
The Car Polish That Isn't

Labeled 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.

Nu Finish Car Polish Review

  • 100% synthetic.
  • Contains no wax.
  • Not really a polish.
  • Don't really "buy into" any product that claims a years worth of protection.
  • Easy enough to use.
  • Will stain black trim.
  • Would buy and use...if no other options existed.

"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.

Does This Once A Year Car Polish Work

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?

  • For the minimalist in life who doesn't like to over-think...anything!
  • Easy to find...virtually at any retail location.
  • Easy enough to use....goes on, comes off easy enough.
  • Lasts as long as most car waxes and sealants...this is also an endless debate enough to make your eyes roll back into your head!
  • Plenty of satisfied consumers/car owners...ignorant to better alternatives, but nonetheless satisfied.

Why Not Choose The Once A Year 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.

  • Better waxes and sealants exist.
  • Products put out by company's that actually produce car care products (Nu Finish is not one of them. A product produced originally by a company that doesn't have expertise in surface car care)
  • Whether you choose a car wax or car sealant, you have many options of superior products.

Darren's Professional Picks

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:

  • Both products are synthetic sealants
  • Both products are liquid in consistency
  • Both are available through this website
  • One is professional/enthusiasts grade
  • One is retail/driveway detailer grade

Menzerna Power Lock

  • One of the actual car paint sealants I use professionally.
  • Can be used in direct sunlight (despite manufacturers directions)
  • Easy on, easy off.

Wolfgang Deep Gloss

  • Another excellent paint sealant.
  • Easy on, easy off.
  • Wolfgang is a favorite among many professional detailers.

Detailers Pro Poli-Coat

  • As the label suggests; professional grade paint sealant.
  • Another excellent choice in a car paint sealant over a traditional car wax.
  • You really can't go wrong with any of these professional grade sealants.

Darren's Professional Tips:

nu finish review

The three alternative's to Nu Finish are closely matched. With that said, as professionally I use the Menzerna's product even though it is not the least expensive of the bunch.

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. And if the idea of countless hours of research gives you goose bumps, then by all means spend the rest of your day searching and reading!
