How Dri Wash Works
So... What exactly is DRI WASH 'n GUARD (or "Dry Wash")?
DRI WASH 'n GUARD® Waterless Car Wash and Protective Glaze is a combination car wash, polish and protective glaze which is applied directly to a dirty surface without the use of water, it contains no waxes, nor is it simply a polish.
Waxes do a good job of "protecting" but often leave the paint dull. Polishes are great at removing minor stains and blemishes, and are much more capable of rejuvenating dull paint. But polishes often are abrasive, and provide very little protection on the paint surface. Paint sealants protect very well, but cannot clean or polish. A vehicle's paint must be virtually pristine before the sealants can be applied. DRI WASH 'n GUARD® combines the best features of waxes, polishes and paint sealants without any of the drawbacks.
So how does it work?
DRI WASH 'n GUARD® contains over 50 ingredients, including wetting agents, lubricants and protectants which have never been used by the car care industry. The detergents and wetting agents in DRI WASH 'n GUARD® combine to soften and emulsify surface grime, while a specific blend of polymeroxane fluids and hydrophenolic lubricants attach a microscopic layer of exclusive PolyGuard-3™ to the surface. PolyGuard-3™ is an extremely rare (and expensive) substance which provides a bonded layer of protection against any remaining abrasive not broken down by the detergents and wetting agents.
Poly Guard-3™ contains extensive cross linked polymers. Due to the high number of cross linked polymers, it is an extremely effective automobile "wax" or glaze. The product contains a complex mixture of cleaning elements along with the glaze ingredients.
With proper application, the product lifts dirt from the vehicle by emulsification . DRI WASH 'n GUARD® Waterless Car Wash literally surrounds dirt molecules, lifting them from the paint surface, before you start to wipe.
At the same time, the application process initiates the cross chain polymer linking process that results in an extremely shiny, highly protective glaze finish. All this happens very rapidly due to the balance of ingredients within the product itself.
The application process does not involve high pressure nor extensive rubbing. The application process also does not require "soaking" - using a high volume of product.
When used in strict compliance with its "directions for use," DRI WASH 'n GUARD® is guaranteed to perform as indicated. Upon initial use, the bottle will spray properly and the vehicle will shine more than before DRI WASH 'n GUARD® was applied and water will bead on it.
Years of ongoing test evaluations, quality control assurances, and hundreds of thousands of field test cases that our satisfied customers have given DRI WASH 'n GUARD® assure its safety and effectiveness. DWG International™, however, cannot be held responsible for damage that may occur from improper use of the product.
