The all time best
I have been washing and waxing cars for over 40 years now. I've tried them all, Rally, Kit, Meguiars, Gliptone etc. Collinite 845 is the only wax, solid or paste that I actually finish the entire bottle. It is by far the best wax I have ener used. Yon cannot beat this stuf. It last at least six months. All my family members cars are protected by Collinite 845. The water just beads all the time!
ProsSolid protection, easy to use. Wipe on thin, let it haze and wipe clean. The gloss is incredible.

Protect and shine
I've been using this on my 2011 dodge truck for a few years. The important thing about this product is that you're getting a protective coating for your paint with the shine of a straight carnuba wax.
ProsToo often we go all out and waxing but don't put anything to protect the paint. Which is why this is such an important product. I like to put my high end carnuba wax over this. I let it cure on the vehicle for a day first. I have a seasonal business, so I don't get to wax my vehicle that much in the summer. If I had the time I'd wax monthly just because I enjoy it. I don't panic if I don't get to it now. Knowing I have this coat of armor on gives me piece of mind. I don't have a garage, which is another reason I need this product. It will give you vehicle a nice wet look and really bring out the beauty of your paint. I find it helpful to let the bottle sit in a bucket of warm water if it's been stored in a cool place or if it's cold out. FYI I live in Maine close to the coast, so I am constantly fighting the elements. This is helping extend the life of my vehicle. You will be very happy you've discovered this gem.
ConsNo cons. By the way, I find this well worth the cost. You're getting a protective coating and a carnuba wax shine in one product. I find this to be a deal.

By far the most durable lasting sealant on the market that I've personally used. There maybe some products that give more shine but won't touch the long lasting protection 845 gives your automobile finish.
ProsGoes on even and wipes off super easy Best protection for the $ Will last a solid 6 months
ConsBuy the better cap the one that comes on it doesn't work Has to be warm environment to use and paint should be semi - warm for best results

I have been using Collinite 845 now for about 3 years and the wax does last 6 months sometimes 8 months. My car has never slept in a garage. Always outdoors so the car surface takes weather abuse of all kinds. Collinite holds up. You get your moneys worth for the price with this product. I recommended it for someone who wants protection on their paint. It can be a contender in a show car event. I expected much more work in applying this wax but with an applicator pad it goes on easy and wipes off easy. The hard work is in the clay bar part of the detailing.
ProsEasy on. Not as costly as other products. Wipes off with little effort. Water beads for at least 6 months.
ConsCan have a thick consistency which is difficult to pour. You just warm it up by placing it on your warmed up engine and the heat will liquify it for an easy application.

Simply the best
I would have never heard of Collinite except I've come to meet some of it's avid fans. As a Detailer for a dealership, I've encountered a lot of different waxes, and I've bought tons for personal use. No more. This stuff is simply the best. Easy to apply, easy to remove. Takes literally DROPS of this 845 to do whole panels! I put, at most, three drops of this product on a microfiber applicator and go at it. Once there is an established layer of this product on an applicator, maybe one or two drops are needed-- MAYBE-- per panel. I've done a 2006 Chrysler 300 and a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 as well as a 2002 Honda Shadow Spirit and the front end of a Cadillac Sedan with this bottle and I've used, maybe, an 1/8th of the bottle! It arrived in a solid state, (45 degrees Fahrenheit), but after allowing it to warm up in a pot of warm water, it's ready to go! As said to me, and now I'm repeating it, It's like spreading oil. Beading is spectacular, and if the longevity is anything like I've heard, I'll never buy another wax.
ProsEasy to apply/remove uses very little product to get a good result water beading is great!
Conscan be hard to see the wax on light colored cars as you're applying

This is the best wax I have ever used, recommended it to my friends, who also say it's the best. I just returned from a 10 day hunting trip to Northern Maine, driving muddy backwoods logging roads, the drove home 300 miles in a snow storm, roads being sanded and salted, when I got home and the weather improved I washed my truck, all of the mud, salt and dirt washed off with ease, the next day, it rained and the water beaded,just like it when I first applied the wax, I will apply another coat of wax before winter sets in and it should last thru the winter. I will never use any other wax, as of the trouble some people say about the bottle, I transfer the wax to a 16 ounce salad dressing bottle[ wish bone] and it solves all of the issues with the bottle. I can't say enough of good things about this product
ProsLong lasting, ease of application, and it makes my Toyota pickup looks better than when I bought it new
ConsI only wished I found out about Insulator wax earlier

You use it a little differently than a normal wax, it's applied very sparingly, but it seems to hold up very well. One bottle should last you a long time.

Long lasting Protection
I have used Collinite 845 for over 10 years and have found it provides a long lasting, deep shine. It is easy to use and goes a long way. I like to apply Collinite after claying and machine polishing the surface, then allowing the wax to dry for up to 12 hours. It is easy to remove even after an extended drying time. My favorite wax. SHAKE Well before use to thoroughly mix the product. After some has been used from the bottle the wax is easier to keep in solution.
Pros1. Easy to apply 2. A bottle goes a long way. I can wax 12-15 mid sized cars with 1 bottle. 3. Easy to remove even after 2-3 days.
Cons1. The factory supplied top is a bother. I use a flip cap from another product and Auto Geek now offers a flip top cap. Get one as it will limit spilling the wax.

Great wax just as shine as P21s
845 has been my go to wax on my cars ever since I took care of a 57' Viking yacht. All of the products are bullet proof and most easy to use. I use 845 on my cars and it goes on easy as I dap different areas of the hood with a quarter size because you only want a thin layer. Ok so used P21s after same prep as 845 and the P21s washed away the bead in a all night thunderstorm when the 845 still beaded and shines just as well on my grey metallic.
ProsGreat company and products.

This is great stuff. Shiny as can be yet durable. Bugs come off easy too. A auto detailer turned me on to it and it has obsoleted my cabinet full of other waxes and sealants.

Doesn't wash off when you wash the car!
I put this on my car that sees salt and road grime and it doesn't wash off with each wash like the old wax did. Makes washing the car much quicker since I now don't have to wax the car as often.
ProsEasy to put on with a buffer
ConsApplies thin so it can be hard to see, but that's minor.
March 20, 2016
Oh it works!
Recently used this product on my 2016 Silverado. I didn't think the truck could get more shiny than it's factory paint job,but it did! I only used about an ounce and a half out of the bottle to do the entire truck! Amazing! Hope it lasts as long as the product claims.
March 12, 2016
Best Decision I have made
I had purchased a small sample of this wax, i believe 4 oz. because i have never used it before and wanted to try it out. Best decision of my life! a little goes a loooooooooong way and the easy to remove is effortless! The gloss is that of a carnauba!

Long wearing shine with Collinite
I have used Collinite 845 for the past 10 years. I find the product provides a deep shine and long lasting protection in South East PA weather. It is typical for a vehicle waxed protected with Collinite to bead up when washed for up to 6 months. Longer if the vehicle is garaged and washed gently. I usually wax 25-50 cars a year with Collinite. I addition, Collinite is easy to use and can be removed readily after 2 days. This helps get rid of the inevitable wax that gets missed when doing a vehicle. In fact, I routinely leave the wax on 12-16 hours to allow it to dry thoroughly and Collinite wipes right off even after an extended drying period. In fact it will smear if you try to take it off too soon. Over all, I find Collinite to be an excellent wax, there are cheaper products out there, but this is a cost effective wax that provides a good protection and a deep shine.
Pros1. Long lasting protection 2. Ease of application and removal 3. Good depth of impression
Cons1. Bottle should have a cap with a spout on it. The standard cap makes it easy to spill the liquid wax. I use a cap off another product that has spout in it. Not a big deal but you will notice it when lying on the creeper trying to pour wax onto a pad and you end with it all over you and the floor.

Best wax for the price
I have been using this wax on my truck from day one, 12 years later. It still beads up like it was a new car after all these years. First learned about this wax from my brother in law, he gave some wax to try out and I've been hooked since. I let a few friends try it and everyone wants to know the name of the wax and where to buy it. You can't go wrong with this wax, I've tried more expensive waxes and keep coming back to collinite 845.
ProsThe best wax for the price and the best shine your car is going see

Why use anything else?
After reading literally thousands of complements regarding this wax, I decided I needed to try it. I've used multiple waxes over the years, some "high-end", some towards the lower end of the price scale. I did a full correction to my SUV then applied this wax with a 2nd generation Griots polisher and a red LC pad, putting what seemed to be very little onto the paint. Removal was a breeze with a microfiber towel and the surface felt nice and slick. A week later the rains came and the water literally flew off. It was nearly dry when I pulled into the garage. I'm not sure I'll ever buy another brand again.
ProsAwesome protection, great shine, easy to use
June 12, 2015
Goes On Easy, Once Melted
Stuff is flat solid in the bottle till you warm it up in the sun or warm water. Until that point its not useable, go to far and it turns to pure liquid and soaks into the pad then solidifies again. A little goes such a long way, love it.
ProsNeed very little
ConsIn colder weather you might need to warm it on the dash of a car.

Prosapply easily even in some sunshine,comes off good too!

Fast and easy
I purchased Collinite 845 after reading about it on the forums. Follow the "definitive guide" on the forum and it is a breeze to apply and remove. A little goes a super long way when applied thinly... one coat barely put a dent in the bottle. I applied 845 over Blackfire Crystal Seal... the Crystal Seal alone gave a great shine and the 845 pushed it up another notch. I have since driven in rain and mud and everything slid right off with a quick pressure washer rinse.
ProsEasy to apply and remove, a little goes a very long way, great shine

I used the Collinite Insulator Wax on my 20inch Alcoa Dura-Brite wheels and it's holding up well. I'm not sure why it so chemically but if it holds up on wheels I'm sure it will hold up a lot better on my paint. Currently have a nano-coating (no need to wax).

Read up on this product and decided to give it a try. Very easy to apply yet hard to see it go on. I actual did the whole car before buffy off. It was very easy to come off. Left a awesome shine to the car. Made it very slick. And yes it was figure print proof.
Consyou do have to warm the liquid wax up since it come very thick. Which I did read up on. I put in a bowl with hot water and let it sit till it got liquid. Shaked it up and went to work.

Collinite Wax is a winner
Great wax. Leaves a brillant shine, and a little, goes a long way. If using it in cooler weather, place the container in warm water ,because the wax has a tendency to solidify. Can be used over plastic trim, grill, without clouding or discoloring.

Collinite #845 - Fast and Easy!
Just used Collinite 845 for the first time on my daughter's 2014 white Jetta. This product is amazing and contrary to reviews I have read regarding difficulty-of-use, this wax is VERY easy to use. I followed these simple steps: 1. Wash 2. Polished (Meguiar's Ultimate Polish) 3. Applied Collinite 845 I applied 845 as prescribed, well shaken and very THIN! I applied one section at a time by hand using a foam pad and then buffed with a microfiber cloth. It came off with ease. I found after a couple of sections that the foam pad became 'primed' with 845 and I had to start using even less than a dime-sized amount. The finish looks amazing and has a very nice shine. And best of all I think this bottle is going to last me for many, many years.
Pros-Easy on, Easy Off -Nice Shine -Very little required per car

This stuff is the BEST.
I just used this for the first time today on my Ram truck. Perfect day: 65 degrees and overcast. I have read about this wax for months, and knew to apply it very thin. To my surprise, it is virtually impossible not to apply it thin. I heated the bottle in warm water, and went to work. It can be described as "oily" for lack of a better term. Just a few drops on an applicator pad did half of the huge hood on my Ram. I did half the hood, then let it dry, and buffed it off. As I worked, I found that I could do an entire panel at once. Then, I guess because of the cool temps, I did the entire other side of the truck. Drying time was about 20 min. After finishing, I had only used up about a half-inch of the wax in the bottle! This bottle will last for years! As others have said, replacing the original cap with a dispenser cap is a must, as it allows you to reload the pad with just a drop or two. If I ever use this wax in the same conditions again, I would not hesitate to do the entire truck, and then buff it off. It was that easy!!!!! I can certainly see why this wax has hundreds of 5-star reviews!!
ProsA joy to use, easy-on, easy-off. You can't beat the price.

I live out in the Pacific and half of the year consists of rain almost daily. I applied this wax about a month ago after these steps: -Wash -Clay -Meguiars Ultimate Compound (Meguiars Microfiber Pads 6") -Meguiars M205 (Lake Country CCS White) -Collinite 845 (GG3 Griots Garage Red Pad 3" Two Coats) This process brought the paint back to life and the beading of water on the paint is the best I've seen. Two weeks after i applied 845 we got hit by a Tropical Storm that brought severe winds and 12 inches of rain in two days! A rinse with a hose and the vehicle looked surprisingly clean. The protection of this wax is second to none. I also clayed my wheels and applied two coats to the face of the wheels as well as the barrels. I have drilled and slotted rotors and this creates a lot of brake dust on the wheels. After 845 I noticed that the wheels stay clean much longer and wash much easier. I recommend this to anyone with brake dust issues. I clayed my glass and mirrors and also applied 845. This combination made the glass crystal clear and i barely use my wipers anymore. I have tried Rain-X and other products that tended to leave residue and marks that 845 has yet to cause. I will also add that this product does not stain trim as many other waxes do. If you get 845 on trim simply wipe it off and youre good to go! One downfall is that it is not easy to apply in the original bottle. I recommend your purchase item: D-9916 Meguiars 16 oz. Self Cleaning Dispenser Bottle to aid in application. Lastly, a little goes very far with this product. Apply it THIN (I use a Griots 3" with a red pad) and let it sit after application about 20 mins and it will wipe off easy.
Pros-A little goes a very long way! -Easy application/removal -Excellent beading/sheeting -Doesn't stain trim! -Can be used for a variety of applications (Paint, glass, taillights, wheels)
Cons-Product tends to coagulate in lower temperatures. -Makes me want to wax everything!

I detail cars as a side job. Several years ago I started using Meguiars NXT tech and really liked it. Lasted around 6 months and had a good shine. A couple years later moved to Meguiars #21 which is about the same and was really satisfied with that. About a year ago I moved up to Meguiars Ultimate Wax which is MUCH easier to apply and remove than the other two. You barely even have to use much product and wipes so easy. Started using Collinite 845 recently and it goes on and comes off just as easy as the Ultimate Wax. However, this stuff beads water much better than the meguiars and seems to make the paint shine a little better. As far as durability cant say that yet because Ive only had it a month now, but if it lasts 5 months or more I will be completely satisfied.
ProsApplication is very easy Removal is very easy Nice Shine Awesome Water Beading
ConsNone so far

Giving this 5 stars!
Initial apprehension about the product but with the use of a dispensing bottle and applicator pad the product went on very easily and buffed very easily. To echo what has been said about this product before, apply only a very small amount on an applicator pad. If you do that it will buff off very easily. I was delighted at how quickly this application took. I did notice that dust stayed off the car for a couple of days. When it rained I noticed nice beading of rain water. I cannot confirm how long an application will last since I only applied this 2 weeks ago. Thus far, I am very pleased. When the product arrived the wax in the bottle was a solid mass. I soaked in in hot water for 15 minutes and transferred it to a dispensing bottle. Afterwards I just shook the dispensing bottle rigorously and the contents became like a liquid. You can also keep it warm by holding the bottle in one hand while you apply the Collinate in the other hand. I washed, clay barred, paint enhanced/polished and then waxed my car and upon completion it looked like it just came out of a showroom. I never worked so hard on detailing before but hard work does pay off. I am hoping I can get 5-7 months from an application. Collinate 845 gives great results.
ConsJust make sure it is in liquid form when you apply.

Collinite 845 Insulator Wax
Has the shine, gloss, reflectivity, wet look, slickness of waxes that cost 10 times the amount with the added benefit of lasting 3 times longer . Collinite does not spend their money on fancy packaging and bottles like girly expensive type waxes, they put it into the contents of the bottle, much like Menzerna does.

The Collinite liquid insulator wax#845 is the best cover over any wax product on the market. The carnuba base is the best for shine and protection. This Company has been around for many years and the product speaks for itself. I have just applied both the double coat paste was and followed up with the @845 and the beading action is second to none, and the shine is the best I have ever seen and I have been detailing vehicles for thirty years. Keep the product on the market and I will pass the word on to my many car guys.

Easy on, easy off
Very pleased with my first bottle of Collinite. Easy to apply, just gotta make sure it's lukewarm so it is in it's liquid state, otherwise gets clumpy. Just leave in sun for a min or two. Then a small dab on an applicator pad, apply, and once dry, buff off with a clean microfiber towel. Leaves an immaculate shine and a glossy feeling surface. Offers great beading up to a month, however I have noticed after a rain, there will be dirt splotches on the truck. Otherwise, lasted me a whole year of washing once a month (twice a month for 4 months after I first bought my truck).
ProsEasy to apply, good beading, great shine, very smooth finish

845!!!! You will love it!

After spending hundreds of dollars over the years for exotic waxes and sealers, I discovered the real deal by word of mouth from a buddy. I use on my daily driver, street rods and can't forget the wife's car. She was truly amazed after and application by you know who on her black car. The application was sooo easy by hand, the Porter Cable stayed in the case. I don't share my secret with anyone at the car shows. Maybe I'm selfish but too bad! As long as I have wheels, you've got a customer.

After letting it dry for about 30 minutes I wiped it off and it came off effortlessly and left an insanely deep, glossy shine on the black and red paint. Also put it on some chrome and polished aluminum and it worked perfectly. You cannot go wrong with this stuff and the beading is crazy!!!

bang for your buck!
Read alot about this online and seen write ups with great pics. Bought this after running out of my usual stuff. wax goes on super thing and gives a great coating. about 2 weeks later gave the car a wash and the dirt seemed to have fallen off the car. Highly recommend this product. ALSO READ THIS GREAT HOW TO ON THE WAX : http://www.autogeekonline.net/forum/how-articles/40243-collinite-845-definitive-how-guide-legendary-wax.html
July 27, 2013
Best under $20 wax you could, can & ever will buy. I get about 6 months of solid beading and it's VERY hardy--excellent to apply right before winter.

Collinite Insulator Wax
I have been using Collinite Wax Products for the past 8 years. I actually accidentally found them via the internet and after one time using Super Double Coat, was an immediate fan. I then tried a bottle of Insulator Wax and again, I was amazed. I'm not a detailer or anything like that but I can absolutely ASSURE YOU, Collinite products are DURABLE. They truly stand the test of time which is what everyone wants in a wax protective coating on their vehicle. There are few products in the wax range that will last longer than Collinite products. It's a fact. I have tried hundreds of wax coatings over the years and for WAX, Collinite out performs the bulk of everything out there at the moment. I would compare Insulator Wax to a sealant in durability. It has a very thick greasy oily consistency which is nice because it makes it very easy to spread on your vehicle in a super thin coat. A little bit goes a LONG LONG LONG LONG way. I have two bottles of Insulator Wax that I have had for many years and they still have a lot of product left in them. Stored properly, this stuff will last indefinitely. I highly highly highly recommend this wax for anyone who wants to have a quality product for a reasonable price. You truly can't go wrong with this stuff or Super Double Coat. I love them both and they are similar although Double Coat is a paste wax in a can, Insulator is a semi-liquid consistency. It's not runny at all. In fact you have to either squeeze it or shake it out of the bottle usually. But it is an incredible wax. This stuff will protect just about any non-porous surface you have.

Best Budget Wax
this is probably the best budget wax out there, that works great, and last long. try it!
January 29, 2013
Great but thick
For the price, you can't beat 845 for durability in the winter. It is a interesting product to work with as you do have to warm it up to thin it to make it usable. There is a wonderful guide in the forums on this product, READ IT FIRST. It will make 1st time users happy.

What it's cracked up to be.
Put this over Poor Boys polish w sealant on a somewhat beat up 06 Colorado (black). WOW! I did not remove some significant defects, only wanted to clean up the paint, get some shine and protect. The truck looks fantastic and is verrrrry slick. Exceeded my expectations. I did not bother using my Griots machine to apply the Collinite. A foam applicator allowed me to apply a very thin coat quickly. I found it easy to remove with a terry towel. Really easy. I warmed the Collinite in the sun and shook it well. It is kind of thin and oily...which I liked. It's consistency makes it easy to smear and spread a really thin coat with a foam applicator. I used less than 2 ounces to do the whole truck. So slick a towel would barely stay on the hood! If it iss as durable as reported, I won't bother with any other LSP

Perfect for the Snowbird
I leave my old truck in florida through out the summer, but before I go, I wax it. I first use Meguiars NXT and then finish with a coat of Collinte 845. Sure it takes a few hours but I only do this twice a year to protect my single stage paint on my 1991 toyota pickup. I do leave it under a carport but I am in belief that the original paint will last for 20 more years if I keep up on the outstanding wax. Oh lets not forget one of the most important things. My truck is a dark mid-night blue which would easily show waterspots with most waxings, but not with Collinite 845. It is with out a dought the best wax I have ever used for the person that doesn't want to wax all the time and yet look great year around.
October 20, 2012
Excellent wax for the price!

Best I've EVER Used!
I thought I knew good waxes....boy was I wrong! This stuff is AMAZING!! In the winter snow slides off a parked car with ease. In the summer when I am washing my Cruze the water repels like no other wax I have ever used. I tell everyone about it. It is simply the best hands down!
October 3, 2012
I read the reviews on this product and I decided to try it. I put it over Klasse All In One and Klasse Glaze. This combination gives the paint a nice deep wet look. For the money this is a wax in a league by itself. Auto Geek has given me some great advise.

Long TIme Collinite User
I live in Buffalo, NY and have been using this wax for 15 years on 3 different cars now. I have not been able to find anything that holds up against the salt and ice like Collinites Insulator wax. During the fall, I put 2 coats on all the chrome on my car, and then a third coat without buffing. (including my front bumper and chrome tipped exhaust pipes which hang out in the salt spray behind my car all winter). People often comment on how good my chrome looks.

I live in Buffalo NY and have been using Collinites 845 for 15 years. After driving all winter long through salt and ice, water still beads off my car in the spring. And it really keeps my chrome protected.

Really good product
Just finished my Buick Lucerne, only took a little over an hour. I probably used too much as it appears to be down two ounces but I didn't encounter any problems with removal. Ease of use was fantastic, the shine is real good and durability remains to be seen though I see no reason to doubt all the other reviewers.

Best Wax I've used at this price
This product is unbelievable. It is so easy to apply, and you need so little of it. I think this $15 bottle will easily last me over a year. The sleekness of the paint and reflections are unlike anything I've seen at this price. Will definitely buy more once this bottle is used up.
March 18, 2012
I LOVE this stuff!!
This 845 goes on easily and you use so little compared to other products. It comes off with a single wipe of the towel and leaves an incredible shine behind. This is my first use and I hear that it is very durable, although I'll wait and see on that point.

Great Hybrid LSP
Goes on easy and buffs off with breeze.....leaving a really nice deep reflection. It has wax properties in terms of looks, and durability of a paint sealant. Great stuff!!!!! Apply 2 coats before winter and you are set for months. Aside: Shake well and pour it in to a dispenser bottle.
February 1, 2012
With 70 reviews and 5 stars, that pretty much sums up the product. GREAT durability, great look, EASY to work with imo, doesnt stain trim...heck I even apply it to trim to darken it slightly and protect it. One of my favorite waxes to use.
January 29, 2012
If not for the 476s or 915, i'd give this a 5 stars. 845 is easier to use, but is not as durable as the 2 other paste waxes from collinite. No wonder this is collinite's best-selling wax. Ease of use with great sealant durability and a carnauba look are hard to beat. Highly recommended, however as with 476s, i'd apply it real thin. I prefer using a microfiber rather than a foam applicator since it seems easier to spread thin. and i would remove it just as soon as it hazes. i've experienced some smearing when left for too long

Excellent for your daily driver or show. Lasts a long time and is easy to apply. This wax looks excellent. Great price for the looks and durability.

#1 in my book
All my life I have been into waxing and polishing my cars and bikes, I have tried them all over time. A body man turned me onto this a few years ago and it is so far beyond "regular" waxes as to not be in the same category. First use was a new car in 2009. three coats not only went thru Pgh PA winter but it beaded water that spring as if just waxed !

THE BEST ON THE MARKET
I have two cars a boat and motor cycle and wouldn't consider using any other wax. All my friends were turned on to your product and they use nothing else.you have a great product keep it that way and it will continue to sell itself. GREAT STUFF!!!!
December 13, 2011
The wax for me
Works real nice on silver, adds depth and brings out the flake. I like this even more than the klasse sealant. Collinite should consider changing the bottle cap for this wax. This wax can make your car's paint waterproof. water will just bead/fall off
November 24, 2011
This is the most veratile wax I know of. It goes on and off easily and can be put on plastic trim. It's great durability to boot!
November 16, 2011
The price of this product makes it very popular for a very durable and high quality lsp. Excellent product The downside is it is not foolproof. Look up the best way to apply it before using it or it can be hard to remove.
November 12, 2011
Collinite 845 has a lot of reasons to be king. But perhaps the ultimate reason is the price. I dare anyone to find another $15 wax that lasts months, is easy to apply/remove, and can be used on trim. This stuff just works!
November 11, 2011
discovered c845 through the autogeek forum where this classic wax is frequently and highly recommended. i used it on several cars and i'd have to agree. even bought one to give as a gift too. not much more to say since it's pretty much all been said.
November 10, 2011
Best Wax for the Money
I challenge you to find a better wax for the price of #845, I have used this on my car and boat for a couple of years now and I only need to wax each thing twice a year. I have only gone through 2 bottles in about 4 years. The product lasts and lasts and lasts and is the easiest product I have used to wax a car or boat!
November 10, 2011
This wax is the best I have ever used and has the best durability of any wax I have used as well! One bottle will easily last me at least one year and that is with three cars to wax every six months. This wax lasts at least six months on my cars and I have not been able to find any other wax that can claim the same results and be as easy to use as #845.
November 10, 2011
i bought this wax after reading so much about it on the forums, they are correct about this product 110%! use very little product i think i used 12 drops for 1 small car goes on very thin, if you don't apply it very thin it can be hard to remove,provides a great shine that is well worth it! imo this wax could be more expensive and i would still buy it! just a great wax with a great shine and beads water great.will always be in my arsenal now!..
November 10, 2011
Another #845 fan
What can be said about this wax that hasn't already been said? It's incredible. It's not hard to use if you've followed the threads on the Autogeek Forums, and you can't beat the price. This isn't a "it's got good shine for the money" review, this is a "I can't believe no one told me about this before!" review. I've done 6 cars (and their wheels) with one bottle and barely made a dent in it. I've even tried it in a few spots around the house! I'm almost excited for some messy roads this winter just to watch #845 brush off snow and salt like it's not even there. I think this should be applied to every single daily driver on the road, without question.
October 17, 2011
Best wax bang for the buck I have found as of date. This stuff wears extremely well. Goes on easy and easy off. This Wax last for months!
October 1, 2011
The best I have used
I have had great results with this product. Over the years I have sent a bunch money trying expensive waxs in an attempt to outshine and outlast Collinite 845. I have found some that shine marginally better but at great cost. I start with a properly prepared surface and apply 2-3 coats 24 hours apart. I checked with Collinite and they confirmed it can be layered after a 2 hour cure but if you can wait 24hrs all the better. Over the summer I add a few more coats because I park at the airport all the time and jet soot is very acidic. Once winter comes and it's too cold to wash and wax I just go though touches washes and the salt/grime slide off. After winter the car still has 845 on it. Sometimes I don't even have to polish down the surface, a big time saver! All the while I have a great shine. On bottle lasts me about 2 years for 2 cars and I wax a lot. Shake well.

Superb. Looks great, lasts forever. Especially hard to beat for the price.
September 7, 2011
Killer durability at any price! Simply a amazing bargain.
August 22, 2011
Easy on, easy off. I love this wax. I will never use anything else.
July 23, 2011
Absolutely fabulous product!!! Goes on smoothly and comes off smoothly! The reflection is crisp and clear. My paint is so slick if I put a microfiber towel on it it'll slide right off the hood! I will never buy any other wax again!! Although one thing i thought was weird is that it was kinda chunky by the lid. But other than that this product is perfect.
July 7, 2011
First time user and this product is fabulous. I was surprised by the shine, easy to apply, not expensive, and best of all it's durable! I would recommend it to anyone.

Applied this wax to a forester that remains outside 24/7 At 4 months it's still protecting and allowing for easy removal of bugs, dirt and tar.

Probably the most durable wax I've ever used, lasting through an entire PA winter with a single application. Be sure to spread it super, super thin and it will be easy to remove. Great bang for the buck!
May 18, 2011
best value bar none
what can be said about this stuff that hasn't already been said. It's got to be one of the best values out there and a top of mind choice for winter prep. The only bad thing about it is it's so hard to get off when you want to play with something new.
By Armand Campos

Durability to the MAX
This wax is probably the most durable I have ever used. It lasted a full New Jersey winter and protected my car from the corrosive road salt. Application went on easy and removal was a breeze. Collinite 845 is a MUST have as a winter wax.
May 18, 2011
Worth 5X the money
Very easy to use. I would say it gives the boutique waxes a run for the money as far as shine and lasts way longer in extreme climates. If your car sees the light of day, use this!
May 17, 2011
I bought this as per everyone's suggestions. I have always been a big time high end user of wax and decided to give this a shot. Though the wow factor isnt fully there, the product holds up to the elements very well. I am going to be using this product around the inside of the engine bay where heat is a factor.
May 17, 2011
I bought this as per everyones suggestions. I am not blown away by its visible wow factor, but it does have really nice beading properties and heat resistance. I will be using this mainly around the inside of the engine bay.
May 11, 2011
I ordered this off Autogeek last year and was astounded. If you are looking for a durable/long-lasting wax with great gloss and amazing beading properties, this is your product. You can easily go for 6 months between applications. Just make sure you apply it THINLY--it's not a normal wax that you can put on thick for "extra" protection. Also note that it congeals in the cold and liquifies in the heat, so it's best to store indoors--not an issue though! If it solidifies, just place the bottle in a bucket of warm water to re-liquify.
May 4, 2011
Excellent winter wax
Outstanding wax for winter! Try Klasse AIO and top with Collonite 845. This lasted me an entire Ohio winter.
March 13, 2011
This stuff goes on and off very easily. Gives a very deep shine on darker colors and the water sheets off very well. This is my favorite carnauba wax. The price is also great!

I PREP MY PAD WITH LIQUID SOUVERAN THEN ADD ABOUT 8 DROPS OF 845 USING THE TWO TOGETHER TO CREATE A SHINE ON SILVER THAT IS INSANE. THE CAR LOOKS NEW. TRY THESE LIQUID WAXES TOGETHER. EASY ON EASY OFF DURABILTY. MIND BLOWING!
November 8, 2010
Excellent for winter prep
By far the most durable LSP for winter prep that I have found. This wax will not make your car sparkle like other paste waxes, but then again, other paste waxes won't last you through the winter season either. Be sure before application that the wax is in liquid form. If not run the bottle under hot tap water for a few minutes to get it to the correct consistency. This wax does have a distinctive petroleum smell to it when you are applying it.
September 19, 2010
This stuff is amazing and I'm thoroughly satisfied, I will not use any other product
June 3, 2010
This product is amazingly good yet not too expensive. Easy to apply. Highly recommended.
April 19, 2010
This stuff is GREAT! Durability is like nothing I've ever seen, and when applied thinly and allowed to haze fully, removal is a breeze. I only wish the bottle cap was a little more sturdy as I have trouble getting it to stay on securely. Buy this product, you won't be disappointed. Makes a great stocking stuffer for friends too ;)

bought this as a recommendation from a boat restorer for my boat. this product goes a long way. i have a 24 foot boat and was able to wax the whole boat inside and out with just a little more than a quarter of teh bottle. it spreads evenly and applies very nice. removes into a brilliant shine. you can really tell teh difference.

Looking for a wax you don't have to reapply monthly? This is it! Stands up to anything Mother Nature throws at it and rewards you with months of well-protected, tightly beading paint. Would be a steal at twice the price.

Collinite is my favorite
I have been detailing cars for 25 years - 10 years as a business owner and now 15 years for fun (therapy). After using everything from Mothers, Meguiars, Pro, Production, Automagic, Griots, Zymol, Pinnacle and too many others to name here, Collinite has surpassed all of the best individual attributes found in the above named products. By far the single best wax I have ever used.

THE BEST WAX EVER MADE ON THE MARKET. BUT YOU GOT TO MAKE SURE WERE EVER YOU PUT IT YOU GOT TO MAKE SURE ITS SUPER CLEAN OR IT IS SEALED IN FOR MONTHS TILL IT WEARS OFF.
July 6, 2009
LOVE THIS STUFF!! used it on my grey metallic 2002 Acura TL and I think it shines better than the day i drove it off the dealers lot!! Easy to use...have given bottles to my brother and brother-in -law to use on their cars!!
February 11, 2009
i just started using 845 aout 6 monthes ago i love it. Its the best wax , i have ever used nothing comes close in how long it last
January 22, 2009
Best wax Hands down
I am a detailer, and i have used just about every wax on the market. ( gliptone, ardex, auto magic,) but this if by far the best ive ever used!!.. i use it on my personal vehicles all the time and everywhere i go people complement my car how shiney and wet it looks (black).. easy on and off and no dust.. the only complant i have towards this wax is in the warmer months after waxing the car, and you park it in the sun oils from the wax tend to come up and it looks smeary..

October 24, 2008
Very good long wearing wax. Easy on and off. Not a "show wax"; it can leave a very slight visable film. I use it on my dark red F250 SuperCab. Good shine. Easy to apply, easy to buff and stands up to New England winter...great water beading after nearly one year.
October 23, 2008
Back about 20 years ago I first tried this little known product and was amazed with its results. Now word is spreading just how great this stuff is and at such a reasonable price. You've got to give it a try, you won't be disapointed.
October 4, 2008
I love the look and longetivity it offers among any of the toughest competitors out there. The tight uniform beads it produces when it comes in contact with water is the best that I have ever seen.
September 30, 2008
this product is truly amezing. its easy to aply end buffed off. the shine is great, and it feels rely slick. the beading also great! aim happy to have this in my collection!
September 16, 2008
Superb wax. I have been using the 845 Insulator wax for 5 years now on both vehicles. The wax is easy to apply and remove. I receive a lot of comments on the show room shine my vehicles retain. The 845 wax is the best wax I have found on the market today.
September 5, 2008
A great product for any paint, but it excels when you want an easy top use product that will last for a long time. It doesnt have the depth on metallics as some waxes do, but on solids, i dont think much can beat this stuff. Makes my white car look like a bowl of milk.
August 22, 2008
Great shine, lasts really long!
This is a great wax. It goes on very thin (it's pretty runny). A little goes a long way. It's very easy to remove, too. Your shine will last up to 6 months (even if the car is parked outside under a tree)!
August 10, 2008
845 is a very easy to use wax. A little goes a LONG ways, it is very runny. removal is a breeze if you let this great wax haze over. great protection, great looks, 1 great wax. Thanks Autogeek.
June 19, 2008
845 is very easy to use.it does become very runny when its warm and is shaken long enough.just be careful how much u apply.a little bit goes a long way.u must let it sit and haze and it makes removal a lot easier.

Nice wax. Thin is in... a little difficult to remove when applied too thick. Looks great, so far the durability is good.
October 30, 2006
Excellent protection, and very easy to apply. I've used this over Liquid Glass for many years and have had great results - even through our winters in the snow belt...
October 12, 2006
I find the collinite 845 very easy to use a little goes a long way, it fairly easy to wipe off an does not stain black trim.Another plus is it can be found over the counter!!!
