Prima Epic is different than most synthetic waxes in that the look is very wet and glossy. Durability is strong with a consistent 4-6 months. Independent testing proved 25 washes, which is one wash per week for six months. Best results are achieved by applying in very thin coats and letting it sit on the paint for 30-45 minutes. Hand or machine application work equally well. Epic has a 24 hour cure time which requires no attention from the user. After the cure, Epic will be glossier and slicker. Trim should be avoided, but the product is easily removed if attended to within an hour or so. Avoid letting it cure on trim pieces. It is critical that Epic is shaken very well prior to use.
