The carnauba content is high, but not as high as other waxes, like P21S 100%...the wax content in that wax is entirely carnauba. Fuzion is a cross breed, its laced with polymers.
    Thanks concorso. Reading up a bit more, the Wolfgang Fuzion wax uses pure white carnauba and is blended with "unique German polymers" (possibly why I thought it was German).

    This is an interesting thread, as there are obviously lots of opinions. From what I have read, a pure carnauba wax only lasts a couple weeks, which is why the polymers are added - they increase the durabilty. One thing's for sure, there are lots of good choices out there, it all depends what you want to spend and how much work you want to put into it.

    I'm not whoring for this company, but I do like this concept of carnuba-over-polymer. Use any products you want, but the polishing compound-polymer-carnuba-detailing spray technique works well for me.

    Once all my gear gets stateside I plan to throw Zaino on my 2011 Black DTS. I've tried the gas station brands like turtle and Meguir's and for the same amount of effort Zaino produced a longer lasting shine that I didn't need to reapply every week. A simple hand wash and hand dry was all I needed to keep my 95 Deville looking brand new.

    Pinnacle/Detailers Pride/Wolfgang and maybe another brand are all produced by the same company in Florida. The Wolfgang line also has input from a German chemist...
    For info sake, the white carnauba doesnt exist that way in nature, its a highly refined version of the #1 yellow carnauba normally used. Polymers look different as well. The hybrid (wax/polymer) waxes look really good, imo.

    I use Blackfire Wet Diamond as my base. 2 coats followed by repeated coats of Concorso every 3 weeks or so works well.
