All Zyml paste waxes are descended from a formula developed in Germany in the late 1800s. They are entirely plant-based. Zyml uses nutritive oils to replace the oils found in your cars finish without the use of harsh chemicals or abrasives. Zyml products are safe for all paint finishes, including new clear-coats, acrylics, urethanes and classic lacquers. The carnauba used by Zyml is Brazilian No. 1 Yellow and No. 1 White, the very highest grades available. This gives both greater protection and increased depth of shine compared to run-of-the-mill car care products. Zyml waxes are an enzyme mixture until they are applied to your car. Zyml becomes wax and starts bonding to your cars surface once exposed to air. Zyml wax is very easy to apply and remove and will not leave any white residue or buildup along seams or in crevices. Carbon Wax is for dark colors and contains 37 percent carnauba by volume combined with a number of natural oils. Eight oz. With applicator.
