Collinite Wax FAQs and Tips

There are two types of Fleetwax. 870 is a liquid cleaner wax combo that works well on less pristine fiberglass surfaces. It removes contaminants and leaves behind a protective high gloss shine. Fleetwax 885 is a hard paste and contains zero cleaners, abrasives, or restoration compounds. It is best used on prepared surfaces for maximum shine and marine weather protection.

If your boat's gelcoat finish is slightly oxidized or weathered, washing and waxing won't bring out the shine you are looking for. Collinite recommends washing thoroughly, then using 920 Fiberglass cleaner to remove contaminants before 885 Fleetwax.

Instructions
Apply a thin coat of wax using an applicator pad to a clean section no larger than 2X 2 ft at a time. When wax begins to dry (when it turns to a light, hazy residue), remove with dry microfiber towel or cotton cloth.

For best results, do not apply hot surfaces or in direct sunlight. Collinite recommends waxing between 55 and 80 degrees F when possible. Note that is the air temperature. Ideally, surface temperature is lukewarm or close to room temp. Hot surfaces don't allow wax to bond to the surface properly and drying times are extended. Attempting to remove wax before it is sufficiently dry will result in smearing. Alternately, a cold surface results in wax drying too quickly. This makes it harder to remove. Under normal conditions, 885 will dry in 3-4 minutes on average. Wind, humidity, and heat/sun exposure can affect dry times. Remove once hazing is apparent.

Use on:

  • Boats, personal watercraft, RVs, aircraft...especially hulls, rails, topsides
  • Exterior gel coat, fiberglass, clear coat, and finished wood
  • Painted plastic and both painted/unpainted metals including chrome, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass
  • Do not use on rubber, non skid surfaces, black trim, vinyl, glass, or un-painted plastic

I just had my boat painted w/ two stage urethane. it was getting scuffs and scratches like crazy from bungie cords etc. collinite fiberglass cleaner took those off w/ ease like butter- and i was able to do two coats of fleetwax (inside and out) on a 16' cabin boat in one day. real easy to use. just go by their instructions and do small areas at a time before it hardens. stuff is very durable. not even bungies make a mark now. i have to watch where i place objects on my gunwales tho cuz with the new superslick surface they go slip-sliding away fast. highly recommend this product. leaves a very glassy finish.

    Comments about Collinite Heavy Duty Paste Fleetwax 885:

    After using CLT-920 to clean & prepare the surface, the waxing went very smoothly. After taking the wax off I used an electric buffer with a polishing pad to really bring out the shine. I should have taken before & after pictures, what a difference!

      Having used this wax for over 25 years, I have introduced numerous friends to it, and instructed them on the proper way to apply. It is easy to use with very little effort, if you follow the directions. Everyone thinks it is the best they have ever used. Shines, lasts, and protects like none other. Makes me look good!!

        Pros

        • Cost effective
        • Great sheen
        • Long Lasting

        Cons

        • Can be difficult to remov
        • Have to use cleaner wax
        • Rain can stain it
        • Stain will not wash out

        Best Uses

          Comments about Collinite Heavy Duty Paste Fleetwax 885:

          Long lasting and best sheen on the market but hard to remove. A wet applicator is key and rub out immediatly. Rain will stain it and it cannot be washed out. A cleaner wax has to remove the stains. Collinite 870wax is the better product to work with but is not as cost effective or long lasting as paste.

          Comments about Collinite Heavy Duty Paste Fleetwax 885:

          I have been using Fleet Wax for about 15 years for both cars and a sailboat. Great protection for cars stored outdoors. Beats teflon and other marine coatings for protecting gelcoat. May need to prep gelcoat with polish such as a clor restorer for best results.

              Simply the best paste wax available for fiberglass. Goes on easy. Use between 50-70 degrees for best results. Don't waste your money on others more expensive waxes. This is the best.

              Buy from Jamestown.. they have the best prices on the Collinite brands. They double package everything so no worries about a leaking bottle.
