Default Question about protectant

Is Mothers Protectant silicone based or an oil based type of product? And is it safe for a body shop environment.


Thanks.

In body-shop speak, our Protectant is not "body-shop safe". It is a water based emulsion, not oil based.

"Body Shop Safe" means it can be used in a body shop and, when prepped, will not interfere with paint adhering to the surface.

Fish eyes are a usual result of contamination caused by using a non-body shop safe product in a paint environment.

Simply speaking, in a body shop environment where painting preparation and painting is going on, you don't want anything greasy being used that may complicate the painting process or interfere with the adhesion of paint.

So in a body shop, there are certain chemicals that you want to avoid, and you only want to use those that are "body shop safe."

Most consumer waxes and protectants would not normally be used in a body shop anyway, but many you don't want to use because the chemicals are incompatible with paint adhesion, at least without certain preparation.

I am the Manager of a Body Shop and have been trying to Research Mothers Protectant. I notice that the posts on this forum are resonably old and would like to know if anything has changed because i saw on the Mothers site that it is "Body Shop friendly". Can you please clarify this as I would like to start buying it for the shop but only if i can be sure that it won't cause any paint reactions.
