    Best wax hands down for the money, will continue to use collinite for years to come, matter of fact I’m on my way to buy some now!

  2. Kevin Li

    I started and fell for Collinite product line, 845, 476, 915,
    and 885 nine years ago, which I was close to 300Lbs. I am still driving my 1998 ML 320 but the paint condition is just way better and the weight is just 150Lbs as beautiful as my car… Seriously, Collinite may required a bit elbow to remove but it pays off to my shining car and health. Thank you, Collinite staff and family keep this legendary company rolling.

    Best wax I’ve ever used started using on my boat several years ago and water beads up the entire season ! Started using on my black pick up truck last year and I constantly get asked how I keep it so shiny and clean .

  4. Julian

    amazing! Simply amazing!

  5. Frank H.

    Collinite 845 was recommended from a friend so i tried it, i’m sold as it’s the best insulator/wax i’ve ever used. Makes my 2020 Toyota 4Runner shine like never before, even better than when i bought it.

  6. Kevin Gomes

    Greatest products I ever used. Thanks for many years of your products. I use 476s and your cleaner wax.

  7. James L

    No doubt. The best I ever used . And I’ve been waxing my cars for over 20 years . Love the fact it shines everything. Plastic . Vinyl included. Plus love the fact that can be used as a top coat on any finishes. Including ceramic. Slick finish . Easy to use . Brilliant shine especially on my 2019 pitch black challenger with vinyl graphics.

  8. Cihangir K.

    Simply the best! I have been professionally detailing and correcting paint for over 10 years now. I gave 845 a shot couple years ago and it has been my “go to” wax for a final shine. I wish I tried it sooner! This stuff is legendary and worth every single penny! Simply remarkable protection!!! Thank you Collinite for the amazing Insulator Wax!!!!!!

  9. Frank D.

    I detailed two of my motorcycles today, used both 845 and for fun followed up with the 476 as a second coat, did this for both bikes.

    I am a new Collinite customer, and I have to say, “just beautiful.” I read and followed the directions and the result was fantastic. Both products were easy to apply and remove. The shine/gloss/depth of color was extremely impressive – I honestly don’t know if it would be possible to improve upon the results.

    Great products, totally recommend it without reservation. I am planning to add some of the other Auto Line products shortly.

    This is a great product. A bottle goes a long way and as others have mentioned, it is easy to apply and take off. I use a soft cloth for application that seems to work well. Remember, you get what you pay for.

  11. Joshua Lehman

    Not even thinking of another wax. A co-worker pointed me to this brand and its just proven quality. As long as they make it ill keep buying it.

  12. Chris

    I detail 150+ cars every summer after harsh winters in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. With a finishing/waxing pad on my Flex buffer, this wax breathes so much life back into paint. Even puts great “pop” on to new paint as well. This wax is my go-to, hands down. Amazing wax for a great price. I love telling people about the Collinite brand…most people have never heard of it.

  13. Scott Y

    Other companies come out with new, high-tech stuff all the time. And some of them, I try. But in the end, I always come back to Collinite. By far, it just performs and looks better.

  14. Dale A Miller Sr. Ygst. Ohio

    Ive used collinite no.845 since i was 16 yrs old , had a 1956 buick special that took best of show several times now i have a 2013 dodge ram 1500, cleanest truck in town ….. I just turned 67 yrs old …. And wouldnt use anything else ….!

  15. james

    35 years using it and my car still shining today! Thank-you Collinite. PS Keep on Shining!!.

  16. Robert Schmidt

    First time user. I love the ease of application and removal. What a shine! Going to use it on all my cars from now on.

  17. Scott B

    Collinite 845 is magic in a bottle. The depth of gloss is terrific and it has decent durability for a liquid wax. My car lives outside 24/7 in the NY/Long Island area.

    Application tip: Put the bottle of Collinite 845 in a hot water bath until it becomes almost liquid like and put a spray nozzle on the bottle. Give just a couple of sprays of the wax onto a clean soft applicator pad. Apply wax to vehicle. Less is more in this case. The more you put on, the more you will have to buff off. Just make sure the wax application completely covers the paint using a circle or zig zag motion.

    It’s not the best wax for the money is simply the BEST wax ever made. After years and years of buying every brand imaginable from domestic like Griots, Chemical guys and burned countless dollars on Wolfgang,Klass Sonax seriously there’s not a brand or sealant I didn’t buy to keep ahead of the rust belts harsh weather on my cars . My buddy has a 23 year old Jeep that’s showroom new and my thought was he bought it from out west because of the zero rust anywhere. I asked what he used if anything or was it stored in the winter, he gave me a bottle of the 845 few weeks later and there’s absolutely nothing to compare it to. It’s not a wax or a sealant it’s Kevlar that is impenetrable. I have OCD with my cars finish and it’s hands down the top protectant and finish made.

    I’ve been using Colonite 845 since 1997 .I bought a brand new truck and ONLY used this wax. In 2006 the truck was hit and they had to replace the fender and the hood. They were concerned they needed to repaint the entire side of the truck due to paint fade but body shop was amazed that after 9 years, there was almost no paint fade. Old and new paint matched beautifully. Now I use on my classic car, my new Dually ,my Impala SS , my Camaro 2SS and my Keystone 32 ‘ camper. Love it! Glad its made in America too!!

  20. rAiN

    Hi Im From Philippines I’ve been using so many wax already. Later on i discover Collinite 845 so far its the best wax for my Suzuki XL7 its shines like always new. Highly Recommend.

  21. Paul Mysliborski

    One of the best products known to mankind. (Or at least detail-conscience mankind. 😉

    This is the Collinite product to start with for anyone who has not tried their line of excellent LSP’s.

    Do NOT listen to any reviews on any website telling you about the “hard removal” of this product.

    If you do not know what “Apply THIN” means, then put the bottle down and hit yourself in head with a ball peen hammer. THIN means THIN!!! This is not a prank meant to mislead you.!

    Anyway, follow the directions, and this product is among the very best (and easiest to remove) products ever.

  22. Ricky

    This is the best products on the market in my opinion. I’ve been using Collinite since 1984 on everything with paint on it.

  23. J. Kostan

    Best wax I’ve ever used hands down! Started using it in 1980’s on my Ford Torino Talladega, and the Presidental Blue pair still looks as good or better than out of the showroom! I use it on by boat and everything down to my lawnmower and have never have been happier. Will use it forever even on our mountains bikes!! Best product for protection on the market, never found better from any higher prices or more touted ” expensive ” wax! If you don’t at least give it a shot, spend the excessive $$ and shame on you!!

  25. Kenneth Bagemehl

    Best wax that I have used, I have been using this wax for about 6 Years now. Important to make sure that your vehicle is properly prepared before applying the wax. Also important to let the wax dry thoroughly before you buff out. Very good wax!

  26. Jeff Aland

    Back in early 1990’s , a flying friend and I purchased a 1964 Cessna airplane with a very recent re-painting (red & white). His brother in law who worked for a power company suggested we use this wax on the plane, since for sometime the power company had been using on their lines (especially ground wires) with good results. Initially I thought “that’s a crazy idea, why not just an ‘aircraft wax’ “? Then we started using it. By the way, “aircraft waxes” are cleaner-waxes and actually will remove some paint (even when the finish is not oxidized !). I’m still flying that plane with a 28 year-old paint job, and it still looks brand new ! I can’t recall how many people have asked me: “are you selling your plane? ” I can’t forget to mention the fact that the finish has NOT faded over the years, so it’s got to be guarding against UV as well. This is a super product. I’ve not used any standard car waxes on cars either. The only people who hate polymer waxes have got to be the people who make their living re-painting degraded finishes. Insulator Wax gets an A+ from me !

    Collinite 845 outshines and outlasts every product that I have ever tried. It is far superior to all of the latest newfangled formulas on the market. It has superior durability and gloss. Apply it thin for ease of use and more efficient buffing. I have a closet filled with many car waxes and sealants and polishes. Collinite 845 outshines and outlasts all of them.

  28. F.D. Zaloga

    Over fifty years of caring for all types of cars, trucks, campers, and motorcycles, I’ve tried them all and have accumulated tins, sprays, and bottles of all types and brands of jizz for paint – from just about every manufacturer. This Insulator Wax beats them all, even the MUCH higher priced / boutique brands. I now use it exclusively. GOOD STUFF!

  29. Kurt

    Have used many products, tried everything that is the new “best” but always come back to the Collinite products. Hands down the best.

  30. Timothy

    Bought a Toyota Avalon brand new in 2015. Hood and bumper chipped every time it was struck with sand or gravel. Began using 845 and after 2nd coat paint hardened and nary a new chip or paint defect afterwards. It must seal and harden the paint and now I only need to apply yearly.

  31. Dave

    I am in my “Senior Years” and I have been using Collinite 845 for many, many years. My current truck still looks like it just came off the assembly line. The paint looks new thanks to this product. My truck has been through numerous severe weather events. Collinite 845 has protected it each time. It keeps tar, mud, bugs and other road hazzards from destroying the paint coat. I use it on my headlights, bumpers, and rear truck window. I have found it helps protect them. I have tried lots of other products but have found this to be the “Best of the Best”. It applies very easy and lasts for a long time. I have been asked by many people what I use to keep my truck looking so nice. I just tell them Collinite. You will not be dissapointed in this product.

  32. Peter

    I’ve been using Collinite 845 Insulator wax for about
    15 years, I came across this product whilst holidaying interstate in Sydney Australia.
    I’ve found one supplier in Australia , Car Care Products, who thankfully is always well stocked.
    I can’t speak highly enough of this product.
    It’s ease of application, buffs to an amazing finish and gives outstanding durability.
    I apply 3 layers over 3 days to all horizontal surfaces
    And 2 layers to the remainder of the vehicle.
    This gives me 6 to 7 months of water beading , protection and flawless shine and finish.
    Considering our climate in Western Australia this is up there with the most expensive waxes on the market.
    Your product out performs everything else I’ve previously used.
    Don’t stop producing it

  33. Igor Adams

    This is an excellent wax. I have it after 3 years of use. I wash my car 1 time a month.

  34. Jeremy

    This is it. Don’t even look at anything else. Easy to apply, easy to remove. As a farmer I have 12 John Deere tractors and 6 farm/personal vehicles to maintain. I’ve never seen John Deere green paint shine like it does when coated with 845. The durability is unmatched also. I normally wash and wax in the summer months and they all get washed again early spring and the protection is still there so I use it as a once a year wax on the tractors since they are inside when not in use, and twice a year on the vehicles. A little goes a long way. I did an f 250 4 door and a 8230 John Deere and still have about 2/3rds a bottle left. I should easily be able to do 3 more tractors with this bottle.

No. 845

There are 2 options:

1. No. S-845 Speed Wax is the most effective option if boosting shine, gloss and protection are your primary objectives.
2. If a gentle cleaning (to address dust/prints/droppings/water spots) requiring surfactants is your primary objective, No. 520 Detailer is your best option. No.520 will also leave protection.
On average, S-845 Speed Wax will be 30-40% more durable than No. 520 Detailer.

Collinite 845 can also be layered over itself if additional protection and shine are desired

Ceramic Coatings: Many professional detailers are successfully using 845 Insulator Wax as a topper for ceramic coatings. Check with the coating manufacturer whether a carnauba-polymer wax is suitable over the coating

Paint Protection Film (PPF): 845 Insulator Wax was tested successfully by the tech department at XPEL PPF. For additional information on Collinite wax’s compatibility with PPF, please contact us directly at [email protected].    

845 will take on a thicker gel consistency in colder temperatures and a thinner liquid consistency in warmer temperatures. The different viscosities do not alter the performance. It can be used in either form.

Yes. Collinite 845 Insulator Wax is Collinite’s most “machine friendly” automotive wax. A finishing pad and low speed are optimal in order to obtain professional results. By hand, a thin layer is recommended to one section at a time. With DA and by hand, microfiber towels are recommended for removal. For one midsized vehicle, 2-3 towels are suggested.

Yes. Wait a minimum of 12 hours between coats to allow the product to fully cure.
