Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax: An Easy on Buff Off Car Wax That Won't Break the Bank

Updated: Feb 9

Car waxes are an essential element of your car detailing toolkit. However, some of you might baulk at the cost of keeping your paintwork and clearcoat in tip-top condition, with some of the top waxes costing hundreds of pounds.

But what if you could get the same performance from an award-winning wax that is 90% cheaper than some of the premium brands? That's what Bilt Hamber claim to have created with their Double Speed-Wax, which blends ease of application with stamina affordability.

So, does it deliver on its promises?

Award-Winning Paintwork Protection Without the Associated Cost

Bilt Hamber is well known for delivering industry-leading products at affordable price points. So when they turned their hand to producing this car wax, everyone in the industry rightly sat up and paid attention.

It didn't take long for the awards to start rolling in, winning 'Best Car Wax 2015' from auto Express magazine back in April 2015, despite competing against other highly rated car waxes - some costing upwards of £200! It also won the product award test in 2017 and, to this day, is highly regarded by those in the industry looking to achieve premium protection without the cost.

So what makes this wax different, and how does it perform?

What Makes the Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax Special?

Firstly, this wax uses a carnauba polymer to produce its protective layer, providing a more economical alternative to traditional paste waxes. We've been using this wax for years now and never cease to be impressed with the deep, rich, and glossy film this wax produces.

The wax delivers excellent beading, and we find it lasts a lot longer than you might expect for a wax at this price. It's not unusual to benefit from six-plus weeks of protection before needing to apply again. Plus, it's super easy to buff off once applied, unlike some other car waxes we've trialled in the past.

The only slight downside is that your car needs to be prepared correctly in advance to ensure this product works to its potential. You'll need to use an abrasive polish or paint clay before applying and ensure your vehicle is absolutely spotless.

How to Apply Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax

As mentioned, the key to the high performance of this product is the groundwork you put in beforehand. Make a start by thoroughly washing your vehicle with hot soapy water, ensuring only to use salt-free automotive shampoos.

Once dried (we recommend chamois leather or a close synthetic alternative), this is where you should think about applying your abrasive polish or paint clay in preparation.

Next, make sure your vehicle is in the shade (a garage is ideal), dampen the sponge applicator provided and wring out as much as possible before use. Using the sponge applicator provided, apply in light circular motions exceptionally sparingly (we mean it – a little goes a long way) and allow to dull for approx 5-10 minutes.

Then buff to a high shine using the blue microfibre cloth provided – turning frequently. And that's it!

Note: Occasionally, under certain humid application conditions, the applied film may bloom after initial application and buffing. If you've noticed it on your vehicle, the bloom will disappear once the film is fully cured. Or, if you don't fancy waiting, it can be removed immediately with a wipe down/buff with a slightly damp buffing cloth.
