Don’t Be Afraid of Silicone-Based Wax!

There is a common belief out there that, if you use a silicone-based wax on your car, you will not be able to get it repainted. However, the painters at our auto body shop in Seattle would like to assure you that this is nothing more than a myth. We can give your car a quality paint job, regardless of the waxes you might have used on it in the past.

While it is true that silicone can interfere with a paint job, this does not affect you once your car has been painted the first time. Should particles of silicone be on the sheet metal of your car’s body when it is first painted, it would prevent the paint from staying on the surface. Once the first coat is on, though, silicone can be easily removed. This is a good thing, too, since you would be hard pressed to find a car wax that does not contain some degree of silicone.
