We have used Chemical Guys Black Light in the past and were always quite pleased with the results, so naturally I was excited to give the new White Light Hybrid Radiant Finish a try.
White Light is a premium gloss enhancer and sealant all in one! Use White Light to add a layer of deep wet shine, fill minor swirls and scratches, and clean minor stains and imperfections from the surface. Micro-refined oils fill in light swirls, scratches, and defects, reducing their visibility for a more lustrous shine. The specialty formulated gloss enhancers brighten and enhance the appearance on any color paintwork, however it really makes white, pearl, silver, gray and other light color paint finishes pop! After application, White Light will protect paintwork against pollution, brake dust, industrial fallout, water spots, and harmful UV rays. If you are looking to clean, enhance, and protect your light colored paint all in one step, the Chemical Guys White Light Hybrid Radiant Finish is your answer!
If you’re unfamiliar with the Black Light and White Light products, they are somewhat different from your traditional sealants. These products can help to remove and hide some light defects to help keep your vehicle looking great in between major details. I think of them as a sort of all-in-one or glaze/sealant hybrid that helps to clean the paint while also leaving behind a layer of protection.
White Light can be applied by hand or by machine. I prefer to use a dual action polisher such as the Porter Cable 7424XP seen in the following photo. I used a white polishing pad which allowed me to do some light polishing while applying the product. Working with speed 4, light pressure, and cross hatch pattern, I spread the White Light over the paint until just a thin coat remained.
The product was left to sit on the paint as I worked my way around the rest of the car. A couple of drops of product were added as needed, but in general, very little product was required for this mid-sized sedan. It took just 20 minutes to work the White Light over the entire vehicle. After 15-20 minutes, the White Light was easily wiped away revealing a glossy, vibrant pearl finish.
White Light proved to be an easy to use product that left the vehicle looking nice and glossy. I cannot comment on if this product that is geared towards lighter colors will produce a noticeably different appearance than a non-color-specific product would, but if you’ve got a white or silver vehicle and are looking for an easy to use gloss enhancing product, this may be a good option for you.
