The difference between a regular car owner and a gearhead is that the latter is bound to take the DIY route while maintaining his or her precious ride. Car care is one of the biggest things petrolheads can do, hence the popularity of products from companies like Sonax.

Sonax Philippines has just introduced new easy-to-use DIYproducts, which are split into three lineups: the Xtreme PPF series, the Xtreme Ceramic series, and the Beast Tire and Wheel Cleaners.

The Xtreme PPF series is meant for vehicles that have automotive wraps or paint protection films, which require slightly different methods to maintain and repair the protective covering.

The Xtreme PPF + Vinyl Cleaner is meant to help remove organic and inorganic residue on the wrap, regardless of material and finish. Then, the Xtreme PPF + Vinyl Polish does what the product’s name describes: It polishes the surface and also adds a water-repellent protective layer.

For on-the-go cleaning, the Xtreme PPF + Vinyl Detailer is great for detailing lightly soiled parts.

For the rest of the vehicles that aren’t wrapped, the Xtreme Ceramic series gives cars the benefits of ceramic coating thanks to its SI-Carbon Technology.

The Xtreme Ceramic Active Shampoo, the Xtreme Ceramic Spray Coating, the Xtreme Ceramic Plastic Sealant, and the Tire + Rim Detailer are all best used during a car wash session, with the spray coating providing a protective layer that works for up to four months.

There is also the Ultra Slick Detailer for quick detailing on slightly soiled surfaces.

Finally, the Beast Tire and Wheel Cleaners are specialized products that make cleaning the dirtiest parts of our cars a lot easier.

The Beast Wheel Cleaner works best against brake dust, road dirt, and other contaminants that can prove tough to remove with a regular car wash. The Beast Rim/Tire/Rubber Cleaner is a multifunction formula that works both on rubber and wheel surfaces.

You can find these products at brick-and-mortar stores around the country, or from Sonax Philippines’ Lazada and Shopee stores online.
