SWISSVAX Matte Paint Products & M5 Matte Detail

As we all know Matte paint finishes are fragile and cannot be detailed in the same way as regular paint finishes.

Swissvax have developed a range of products especially formulated for matte paint finishes, extensively tested by the Lamborghini and Rolls Royce factories giving great results and no loss off the delicate matte finish. They are good for all MATTE finishes.

SWISSVAX Car Bath Opaque



  • Special shampoo concentrate (500 liters of wash solution) developed for satin matt paint finishes.
  • Effectively breaks the bond between the dirt and the paint surface for a perfect and effortless car wash.
  • Prolongates the lifetime of your Swissvax wax finish and therefore is absolutely safe and strongly recommended for regular washing.

Soft as rain water, Swissvax Car Bath Opaque is a highly-effective but paintwork- and wax-friendly shampoo concentrate which makes up to 500 liters of wash solution. It effectively breaks the bond between the dirt and the paint surface allowing you to perfectly and effortlessly wash your vehicle achieving best results with ease and in minimum time only. Avoids any impairment to the opaque look of the surface. Its pH-neutral formula prolongates the lifetime of your Swissvax wax finish and therefore is absolutely safe for regular washing. We recommend the combined use with the Swissvax Waschpudel or a Swissvax Wash Towel for the immaculate and scratch free car wash.

Swissvax Pre-Cleaner Opaque



  • Pre-Cleaner spray specially developed for satin matt paint finishes (works also satin matt foils).
  • Easily removes fat, bug tar, fingerprints etc.
  • No impairment to the satin matt finish of the surface.

Swissvax Pre-Cleaner Opaque spray was specially developed for satin matt paint finishes (works also satin matt foils) and easily removes fat, bug tar, fingerprints etc. with no impairment to the satin matt finish of the surface. Pre-Cleaner Opaque has to be applied before the first wax application and easily removes old wax and other residues and provides a smooth and perfect surface as an essential basis for the wax application. The application of Pre-Cleaner Opaque is an absolute must before the first wax treatment.

It is only possible to achieve a perfect finish and long term protection if the paintwork is perfectly pre-treated - preparation is key.

SWISSVAX Opaque Wax



  • Premium wax specially developed for all satin matt paintwork types (incl. foils) with 40 Vol. % of pure Brazilian Grade One Carnauba.
  • Offers your automobile's paintwork thorough long term protection against all kinds of negative immissions without damaging its satin matt appearance.
  • Very easy to apply.
  • Prepare the paintwork with Pre-Cleaner Opaque prior to the wax application.

Swissvax Opaque wax is a premium wax for all satin matt paintwork types (including foils). Thanks to its formulation including 40 Vol. % of pure Brazilian Grade One Carnauba wax it offers your automobile's satin matt paintwork thorough long term protection against all kinds of negative immissions, bug tar and fingerprints.

Thanks to its proverbial ease of application and the perfect results it provides, Opaque is very popular both with private collectors and enthusiasts and professional users.

A wax container of 50ml is sufficient for 2 to 5 wax applications whereby we recommend you to wax your vehicle every 3 - 6 months meaning that one container of wax allows you to maintain your automobile investment for one or two years.

Before Opaque is applied, the paint has to be prepared with Swissvax Pre-Cleaner Opaque in order to ensure that the paintwork surface is perfectly clean and free of contaminations of old wax, acid rain, tar, insects and other remains. Perfect preparation is the key to the world famous Swissvax finish to ensure that the wax can perfectly bond to the paintwork surface.

what is there to correct with a matte finish, its paint with no shine, correcting with any machine will only give a 'shiny' surface to the paint, as we all know its very fragile and need to be treated with upmost care!

To this date i've never seen a swirled matte car.... first time for everything right??

The product line we have all been waiting for! Kudos!
It truly is a great product line, and long over due!

"To this date i've never seen a swirled matte car.... first time for everything right??"

have you ever inspected a matte paint under 500-2000 watts of halogen lighting?

Matte paint by its vary definition does not reflect light back, swirls are only seen due to the reflection of light in the scratch groove.

Cheap way to get matte paint is adding baby powder to clear causing many surfaces for light to not reflect clear and thus a matte finish, same way if you sand with 3000 grit paper you get a "matte" finish. Swirls are not seen as in reality swirls are what cause the matte finish on a basic level.

Matte or Satin Finish Paint - if polished with traditional polishes the finish will become less matte and glossier over time; do not wet-sand or use conventional wax or use an automatic car wash that uses hot wax in the final rinse, as the flattening agents that cause the matte appearance will become ‘levelled ‘The textured finish is accomplished by a diffused 30 degree reflection and are retained very close to the clear coat surface. By levelling the surface the light will be reflected evenly and result in a ‘shine’.

Use a machine polisher and an ultra soft, zero abrasive cut (Lake County CCS Concourse Gold (100 PPI) foam pad) with a mild chemical paint cleaner (Zaino Z-AIO - All in One) it will remove surface marring and leave it satin matte.

Use a clear polymer (Zaino Z-CS - Clear Seal) the key is to add surface protection and depth without adding gloss.
Swisswax Opaque products for matte finish paint and vinyl wraps have been specifically developed (oil free) to ensure that they don’t change the appearance in matt paint or vinyl wraps.

1. Wash surface with Swisswax (SV) Opaque Car Bath
2. Prior to wax application the wrap needs to be totally free from oils and dirt. Clean all wrapped surfaces with SV Opaque Pre-cleaner.
3. Spray a 100% cotton micro fibre towel and apply to one panel at a time.
4. Wipe off with a clean 100% cotton towel
5. Apply SV Opaque Wax to one panel at a time, this wax will provide depth without adding a shine
6. Allow to dry for 10 minutes before buffing off and moving to the next section.
7. After the wax has out gassed and set-up, allow 2-3 hours and then buff the surface with a soft 100% cotton micro fibre towel
8. Use Quick Finish Opaque as a quick detailer to remove finger marks and smudges

thanks. those were the answers i was looking for, not some weak sales pitch. i know friction & agressive polish with an
agressive pad will ad gloss to the flatness. ive been doing this for 15 years lol.

i still want to know if anyones had a matte paint under any halogen lights & if pics were taken.

thanks for your reply TOGWT.

PLEASE NOTE - With Swissvax Opaque Products it is very important NOT to let the Opaque wax stand/sit on the paint for 10 minutes. It needs to be applied left to stand for about 1 - 2 minutes then buff with a SWISSVAX Micro Fluffy.

I thought i would check back on the thread as more and more cars and bikes are having this delicate paint applied either at the factory or as a respray.

It is said that matte paint cannot be waxed with anything - That was until Swissvax made the Opaque line!!!

It will not alter the appearance in any way....

All the links are on the first post to the products.


GIVE IT A GO...
