Wax acts as a protective layer, shielding the paint from environmental contaminants, UV rays, and oxidation. It enhances the gloss and shine of the car's surface, giving it a visually appealing finish. Additionally, wax fills in minor imperfections, such as light swirl marks and scratches, creating a smoother and more reflective surface. It also makes cleaning easier by repelling dirt and water. Regular waxing prolongs the life of the paint, preserving its color and lustre.
