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.

We use a combo of 845, after Klasse AIO, Sealant, and Pinnacle Liquid Souveran Car Wax. The 845 wears well. Living in Fl and the cars in direct sunlight and almost daily rain 845 just protects and lasts.
ProsLongest lasting wax we have found Good shine A little goes a long, long way

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!
April 17, 2014
Very easy to use! I was skeptical about using because I was afraid of streaking and just hard to get off. Not at all. Waxed a 2010 Honda civic and the shine and slickness is absolutely amazing! Dont be afraid to try this wax. You wont regret 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.
ProsThe Karate Kid would have really loved this wax,wax off!

I use this as a topper to Duragloss 601/105 combo. It is bullet proof for 6 months easy. Stands up to Florida heat an hummity.

I put this on one year ago and it's like I waxed it yesterday. Still beads, still runs water off, no chips in paint. Rock hard protection. Easy to put on and buff to shine. Love it!
October 22, 2013
I got this since it was very cheap and had great reviews. I put it on VERY THIN on my harley as in 5 tips onto a foam pad for my bike. 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

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
May 27, 2013
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
April 20, 2013
this is probably the best budget wax out there, that works great, and last long. try it!
Great but thick
January 29, 2013
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.
November 18, 2012
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
November 11, 2012
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!
October 10, 2012
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.

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.

It's unbelievably easy to use apply and remove. The shine is extraordinary.
By Tom T.
Really good product
September 9, 2012
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
May 14, 2012
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.
I LOVE this stuff!!
March 18, 2012
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
February 2, 2012
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
January 11, 2012
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
January 6, 2012
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!!!!
The wax for me
December 13, 2011
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.
Best Wax for the Money
November 10, 2011
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!..
Another #845 fan
November 10, 2011
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!
The best I have used
October 1, 2011
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.

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.
