My last correspondence from Infinity Wax


Hi Peter, Contained within the polish are alphlitic hydrocarbon solvents which are required for the product to spread and cure properly. Similar solvents are found in all polishes and most hard waxes. It is certainly unusual for this to happen however the length of time certainly would have been the deciding factor in this, also if it dropped onto the surface there would have been a much higher concentration of polish and therefor solvent on the surface than if spread over during normal use. I do fully intend to investigate this and will get back to you with any findings.

Here's some pics of a trial I did on Muj's old wing. It's a base coat and clear job the same as horace's and paint is at least 15 years old. The result is exactly the same and the polish company say it's caused by silicone drift. i say it's too much solvent in the polish. Polish was dripped on the polished paint and left for 24 hours then rubbed off leaving the purple stains. These stains won't wipe or polish off having impregnated into the finish - Judge for yourselves:

It's just the thought of all those poor turtles being boiled to make it that puts me off.

Infinity Wax spat the dummy out on facebook with all sorts of nonsense and threats of legal action against me after i posted my paint problems on a public forum. So much so i changed it back to just friends as I can't be doing with the nonsense.

That's dreadful.

They deserve to lose all their customers for that.

Myself and a friend individually did a non scientific test on old panels. we left Meguiers, auto glym, t cut and angel wax in concentrated form on the test item for around 12 hours - and guess what? - it just wiped off with no damage. Obviously, we aren't skilled chemists, nor have nasa style premises like Infinity Wax have, but there you go.

Have heard similar problems with this product before unfortunately. Always difficult to decide in some cases as to whether products are used correctly or along side other products which could cause a reaction. Real bummer for you though Pete but glad you managed to refurbish the wing.
