Adding P21 after Klasse AIO

I have Klasse AIO and Klasse GS. Does Klasse AIO act more as a polish or wax. Can I put p21 or Meguiers Tech wax after polishing with Klass AIO. Then after waxing use mulptiple coats of Klasse GS. I want ot get that super wet look and mirror effect.

Also how is mothers carnumba wax compared to Maguiers tech wax or P21
thanks

It's neither, really. It's an acrylic sealant if I'm not mistaken. I used AIO and then followed it with a good carnauba wax for that deep wet look. It worked.

Hi Randall. How have you been. I am loving the car.

So I can use Klasse AIO to get rid of swirls and light scratches. then Use P21S carnumba wax next.
Then can I add the Klasse Selant Gloss I bought after the P21S wax or should it be the other way around
thanks

To my knowledge, Klasse AIO is not a sealant per se. Klasse actually makes a sep sealant to go on after AIO.

AIO is a chemical based polish ( no abarsives) and acrylic finish (maybe that is a sealant?) . To my understanding , many folks have followed up AIO with a wax based product and have liked the look.

Personally, I am very happy with AIO followed by the sealent.

AIO is a polish. It cleans the paint and adds some protection.
AIO is formulated to stick to SG. So I guess you should use one
immediately after the other.
SG is merely a sealant that needs 8 hours to cure.
If you want that wet look layer many coats of SG.

P21S and other Carnauabas are overkill in my opininon. And on certain
colors the shine is nicer by just leaving SG alone.
Silver works well with Carnauba.
By the way S100 is 1/3 the cost of P21S and is essentialy the same.

bottom line is if you want to use carnuba do so after applying any klasse products -- if you use klasse aio after carnuba, it will strip the carnuba off; and i don't think klasse sealant glaze ("SG") will stick over top of carnuba; but carnuba will stick over either.

wait a minute Joji, you are from Orlando??
I was there for a week recently and I only see one Porsche that whole week and that was on my way to Cocoa Beach.
Orlando is a sea of Civics, Accords, and Camrys. Very very few Germans.

Here's my old miata afer:
1. Clay
2. 3m Rubbing compound for dark cars
3. Klasse AIO (2x's)
4. Klasse Selant glaze (must have been at least 7 coats)
5. S100 Carnauba (2x's and a weekly Sonus Carnauba spritz)
