The P21S Deluxe Wax Applicator is the best wax applicator I have tried in many years of detailing and testing products.
“The P21S Deluxe Applicator 2 Pack provides you with two premium foam applicators for the application of any polish, glaze, sealant, wax, etc. Using a clean and soft foam applicator is critical for the application of any product. The foam based material that actually touches your paint is extremely soft and delicate so you can be sure it’s safe on any clear coated or painted surface. This applicator is contoured so you can grip it securely with ease. It carefully spreads any product thin and even for optimal results. This German engineered product is an excellent selection for any detailer.”
When the package arrives, we get a nicely packaged pair of applicator pads in a sealed bag. Once we open up the package and see what’s really in there, we’re greeted with an applicator pad that looks good and fits nicely in your hands.
One reason I like this applicator is the overall design. It’s extremely well done both aesthetically and ergonomically. It fits perfectly in the hand, even for someone like myself with larger hands, and it looks good doing it. As you can see in the photo below, the applicator fits perfectly in the P21S 100% Carnauba Wax container…
The P21S Deluxe Wax Applicator fits just as well in the P21S Concours Carnauba Wax container. In addition, I use this applicator regularly with Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax and I’ve tried it with a few Dodo Juice waxes as well. In short, the applicator can be easily used with pretty much any standard sized container out there, whether it’s made by P21S or another manufacturer. Obviously it also works great with larger containers.
The main reason I like this applicator so much is the actual performance of it. As it says in the product description, the foam material is extremely soft and delicate, making it safe on any paint finish. Knowing it’s safe is a huge plus because it’s critical that no swirl marks or marring are caused by the applicator, especially when it comes to the last step of the detail, the waxing process. In addition to the safety factor, the foam on this applicator is able to contain quite a bit of wax. This is good, in my opinion at least, because after applying wax to a few panels on a vehicle, you can simply push the applicator pad against the paint to squeeze out a bit of wax and continue with the application. This way you don’t need to go back to the container as much as with another applicator, yet you can still apply just the perfect amount of wax on the paint. Speaking of the perfect amount of wax, the P21S applicator spreads the wax onto the paint thin and even, resulting in complete coverage and easy removal.
Lastly, this applicator is great for its versatility. As noted in the description above, in addition to being a great wax applicator, it’s a great tool to polish tight areas on a vehicle, such as under side mirrors, inside bumper openings and inside the license plate area. I use it regularly on such areas when trying to remove the scuff marks to which I can’t get with a polisher and with it’s soft foam, it makes it a great tool to use finishing polishes by hand without causing any additional marring. It’s very easy to hold, which makes it that much better of a tool.
At the end of the day, P21S Deluxe Wax Applicator is an applicator I believe anyone should have and utilize. It’s great in so many ways that any alternative doesn’t compare and I’d highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.
