Is it necessary to top Sonax PNS with something else?

not necessary at all, but i would highly recommend it. pns and brilliant shine detailer (it's a spray wax really) are a duo basically. i haven't had the chance to use it myself, but from everything i've gathered it basically will boost up pns once it starts to lose its characteristics. it aids in the drying process as well so it will only help the normal car washing process and not add too much time if any at all.

I've always used their brilliant shine detailer, great product really, but I was really wondering if it could benefit from a good carnauba wax or if it will actually shorten its life.

i'm not a big believer in adding a wax over a sealant. sure it'll give you good looks but it will degrade pretty quickly since it isn't bonding to the paint. i don't see why a wax would degrade a sealant.

I personally wouldn't top PNS with a wax. Tested it myself and the wax didn't last at all so not worth the effort. From what I was told adding a wax to it could shorten the durability slightly so that's why everyone recommends brilliant shine QD

I need to wash my car and get some beading action. I haven't done a proper wash since after my Opti Gloss Coat application.
