Question Dust repellent wax

I hope this doesn't sound like dumb question. We live near and drive on dirt roads on regular basis. Is there such a wax that will repel dry dust particles better than others? We could wash and detail the car and one drive down the road and the car now has a fresh layer of dust on it?

This is a forum so why not ask! Thank you

Marsha

Never heard of a wax that repels dust. If you find one let us know.

Never a dumb question on the SV detailing section! You may want to try our Resilient Slippery Wax. This synthetic formulation allows for an ultra slippery wet finish that repels dirt and reduces the static charge on the paint's surface. With its amazing smooth finish, this product is uniquely formulated with additional durable UV blockers that protect your finish from the damaging effects of the sun offering superior protection. This property is an extra dose of prevention that other waxes may not offer.

When I first got my car, even though the dealer had it all detailed. It seemed to have allot of "static-cling" probably due to the material the body is made of. Since I detailed the car myself and the products used. Seems the dust will "blow off" now.
And the Buggy Buggers even wash right off.

There will always be dust. We don't live or drive on dirt roads, but there are fine dust particulates, especially on our black Z. On our Red coupe, we can't see it as well, but its there.

I have tried Zaino and Rejex some other applications to test if the dust sticks. One thing I have noticed is that on good products, the dust will blow off easily. Never wipe it off, wash or blow it off.

Good luck on finding a product you makes you and your car happy.

That's a great idea! Had some idiot in a Lexus Vert on my @ss tonight coming home from work wish I had a something. Thought he was cool keeping with me. As usual couldn't go anywhere, car in front and passing was impossible.

Chemical Guys has a couple of QD sprays that have anti-static properties...Extreme Slick Synthetic..and Speed Wipe Spray...I use them both and have found that they work...keeps dust from clinging on my cars butt..it still does but not as much as if I dont use the Chemical Guys QD...I use them after every wash...
