Turtle Wax ICE isn't really a wax, it is a paint protectant and a VERY good, long lasting one at that, but it doesn't fill in the fine scratches like a wax does. I have ICE on my Bravada right now and it is SO easy to wash that truck right now it isn't even funny. A simple wash and dry makes the truck look like the day that I applied the ICE way back before winter.

As far as waxes go, it was a difficult choice between Gold Class & NXT from Meguiar's, both in paste form. I ultimately have to choose NXT because on my Bonneville they both provided the same shine and equal life, but the NXT was SO much easier to apply & remove.

Gotta go with NXT, in combination with ICE as a touch up, it's unbeatable IMO anyaway.

I'm speaking from experience using ICE. It is not a wax as typical waxes are defined by their constituant parts. It is more like Liquid Glass than any other wax that I have used. It is a polish/protectant, not a true wax.
Source: Turtlewax website -
Turtle Wax® ICE™ is a clear wax formulated with completely new technology that blends silicone and hydrocarbon polymers to provide extraordinary shine and durability.
Now they state that it is a clear wax, but being made of blended silicone and hydrocarbon polymers, I'd call it more of a paint protectant than a wax. It is very comparable to Liquid Glass.

The main reason why I say it isn't in my definition of a wax is because it does not fill slight imperfections in the paint (ie. swirl marks) like a typical wax will. Now given it's polishing properties, it will tend to remove some of the very slight imperfections, but trust me on dark paint (all I have is black), it does not produce the upclose perfection that a true 'wax' will give you. From say 10ft away, they are indistinguishable, but get up close and I can see a definite advantage to NXT wax.

One thing that I am interested in trying is the paste form of ICE.

Thanks Kyle...I think I'll try the NXT. That black is not forgiving at all is it? I love the looks when it is spotless, but man everything makes it look dirty...

Here is my review on TurtleWax ICE: New TurtleWax ICE!!!

by far the liquid clay bar by ice is amazing stuff it stopped my oxidation on the spot brought out the real shine in my paint its so easy too i rinse with cool water then apply the liquid clay bar cause its a car wash and wax in one then after rinse again towel dry the white residue comes through then follow that with the detail spray by ice with a terry towel and man does it shine like no other by far the best ever first time result its good stuff

Is the NXT wax that much better than the basic 3 step system ?
