Dodo Juice Diamond White Carnauba Car Wax

Dodo Juice Diamond White Carnauba Wax

Dodo Juice Diamond White is a carnauba paste wax specifically formulated and blended to get a crystal clear wet look shine from white, silver and light coloured cars.

Sometimes mistakenly referred to as Dodo Juice White Diamond and not to be confused with the Poorboys glaze of that same name, Diamond White is a blend of white beeswax, micronised carnauba and natural oils to bring out the very best in what are difficult colours to get deep shine on.

Dodo Diamond White is classed as a “Hard” carnauba wax. This doesn’t mean that it is hard to use but instead refers to the fact that it produces a hard wax coat protection on your car, truck or bike.

The finish you get with Dodo Juice Diamond White is a crystal clear amazing gloss. Take a look at the video below and you will see just what I mean.

Thus the water simply sheets off your paintwork taking any muck and grime it contains with it, protecting and keeping your paintwork cleaner for longer.

As well as the hydrophobic properties, Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax  Meguiars Ultimate Paste Wax contains newly developed synthetic polymers which crosslink to form a protective barrier that amplifies reflections for incredible depth & mirror-like shine on your paintwork.
