|Rating: Turtle Wax Ice Polish is marketed as an easy to apply, all surface safe wax. In this review we tested all of its claims. Here is what we found: |
Can be applied in direct [color=red ! important][color=red ! important]sun[/color][/color]: Yes, it did go on and come off fairly well in direct sun. It was however much harder to remove. The polish almost feels like it is abrasive when you are applying it.
All surface safe: The polish was applied to both trim and seals with no ill effect. This is a huge plus for this products over a more conventional wax which would leave a white residue.
Same shine less time: This is where the disappointment came. While the polish was easy to apply, the shine was not on par with other products.
From bottom to top the four waxes applied were: Ice, Nut Wax, Zymol Carbon, 6 week old Nut Wax.
Even in low resolution web images you can see that the Ice is not as glossy as the others, note the reflections.
Above you can see the only section not to bead up was the newly applied Ice section.
