Little particles make cars, profits shine (The Cincinnati Enquirer)
- Keith Matthews knows his car wax.
A car detailer at International Motor Car Co., 2111 Dana Ave., he puts a shine on two or three vehicles a day for the luxury-car dealership.
"Nanowax is the best thing I've used, and I've been doing this for 15 years," he said.
Eagle One Nanowax, produced by Ashland Inc.'s Lexington-based Valvoline unit, is easier to apply, leaves less residue and does a better job of handling swirls and defects in car finishes, he says.
Matthews is raving about one of the hottest new products in the nearly $70 million liquid car wax market.
Eagle One Nanowax is thought to be the first car wax developed with nanotechnology, basically working with particles no bigger than 1/75,000th the size of a human hair. More here.
Is this nanotechnology?
