Collinite’s No. 845 is a classic amongst diehard car care enthusiasts and historically known as an extremely durable wax that provides great depth and protection! Collinite 845 Insulator Wax leaves behind a deep carnauba shine and durable heavy duty sealant that preserves the finish and shields against UV, rain, snow, salt, dust, dirt, grime, bugs, stains and more. Each bottle is proudly handcrafted and poured in the USA.

- NOT recommended for rubber, non-skid, black trim, vinyl, glass or non-painted plastic.
- Prepare clean surface via wash and decontamination (As needed also compound/polish/panel wipe)
- Shake well before using. If cold, use warm water to allow shaking
- Apply VERY sparingly in a thin manner to clean dry surface no larger than 2 Sq. Ft. at a time
- When wax begins to dry/haze up - Buff off with Slogger side of the Microfiber Madness Dusting Diamond OR with a Microfiber Madness Yellow Fellow
- Coverage: Depending on finish and conditions, one 16 oz bottle for every 12-24 mid-sized cars.
- Product consistency: liquid-gel/soft paste* Sizes available: 16 fluid oz
- Store product at room temperature away from fire or flame
- Discard product if exposed to frozen temperatures
- Keep cap or lid on product when not in use
- NOT for use on Rubber, black trim, vinyl, glass or non-painted plastic
- Use in a well-ventilated area with protective eyewear and gloves
- Applicator pads and removal towels should be clean, free of residue and changed frequently
- Only apply to a CLEAN surface; washed, and free of blemishes, discoloration or other imperfections like swirls or scratches. A clean/properly-prepped surface will ease the application/removal process; improving spread and increasing durability of wax’s bond.
- Do NOT apply wax to entire vehicle, or sections larger than recommended before removing, as prolonged drying or cure times may lead to wax hardening on surface; causing streaking or difficulty for some users to remove properly. User assumes risk if recommended cure times are exceeded.
- Drying times may vary based on conditions (air and surface temperature, humidity, wind, sunlight etc).
- Avoid applying in direct sunlight, or extreme temperatures (over 80 degrees F or less than 55 degrees F). Surface temperatures should be, or feel lukewarm-room temperature to the touch. Do not apply if surface feels cold or hot to the touch.
- If thinner product viscosity is desired, place capped No. 845 bottle in a warm-hot bucket of water for 5- 10 minutes to loosen consistency. Remove and shake thoroughly.
- Safe to use with machine buffer if experienced. Check machine manufacturer’s speed/pad specifications for last step protective waxes that contain no cleaners, abrasives or filling agents.
- To further maintain the look and durability of the waxed finish between wax applications, use a car wash soap that is pH neutral and gentle on the paint with no grease-cutting properties. These soaps facilitate a streak-free shine while helping to preserve the applied wax. Avoid heavy detergents or low-grade soaps.
- *Product viscosity / thickness is subject to a slight range based on temperature. If more liquid consistency is desired, submerge bottle (capped) in a warm-hot pot of water for 5 minutes. Then shake the bottle vigorously with your thumb tightly on the cap for one full minute.
- The added heat and friction from shaking will warm the bottle’s contents and the creamy or liquid consistency will be formed. In the colder months of the year, the thicker 845 is now the norm if not altered by the aforementioned methods.
