good cleaner wax for enhancement
October 9, 2020
I'm using Blackfire Paint Cleaner for enhancements or express details for most cars (pre 2015) and some SUVs. I find the non abrasive technology good for what it's meant for. As most of my enhancements or express details are performed outside (southeast US), it is difficult to remove above 80o and humid environments. Using it in a climate controlled garage, then it works as advertised. When using outside, I've gone to applying onto two panels then removing from panel one, polish third and remove second...otherwise it's a PIA to remove. I've found it not as flawless as Mike Phillips demoed it to be.
ProsEase of application Cost per use Relative speed
ConsDifficult to remove under hot conditions (outside) Smears under hot conditions (outside)

Used on a brand new car to make sure paint was prepped before sealant and wax. Easy to use. Worked as described.

This cleaner removed a "quartz" sealant that other paint cleaners could not remove. I applied a quartz sealant to my car in accordance with the instruction but the result was a hazy mess. No paint cleaner that I tried would remove it. This cleaner removed the smeary mess on the first application and left my finish ready for a different treatment. Congratulations on creating a product that truly does what it claims!

I have to say, it does provide the base for a mirror finish. But I maintain my cars with a show finish anyways. Not sure it’s any better than using a clay bar though. It certainly requires more effort than clay and I used a buffer to apply it. After finishing application on my SUV I felt like I got a decent workout. I did feel a couple of small embedded particles on the hood before applying wax. Very minor but it would have been a simple fix to run over it again with a clay bar. Still undecided. Awaiting an opportunity to apply it to my black sedan.

This product was extremely easy to apply. The gloss and shine is simply amazing. I used the polish after claying the car with the BlackFire clay bar. It's everything I wanted it to be plus some!!
ProsEasy to apply Beautiful shine
Does the job!

Very easy to apply and remove. My car is red, and I was able to see the difference between a treated panel and a panel with no enhancing polish. Looked better than when I first saw the car at the dealership! It really made a difference!
Great paint cleaner

Don't let the name fool you, this isn't a polish. It's a paint cleaner and glaze. It's the perfect step to take before applying you're wax or sealant. It applies very easily and smells very nice. Comes off fairly easily, not Blackfire Wet Diamond easy, but easy enough. I find using a damp microfiber applicator to be better than using a machine with this product. Though a machine works just fine, I just think it works a little better applying by hand. It does cover up minor swirls/scratches and leaves the paint looking great and feeling like clean smooth glass.

This wont remove swirls, but it does a great job of giving the paint a cleaning, and totally stripping LSP's. i use this to strip LSP's and it does a great job by hand or machine.
