Perfect Care: Detailing Products from Japan


Auto detailing started in Germany in the 1800’s when animal fats were used to protect the paint of the car, similar used on how wax is being used nowadays. It was needed during that time because there is so much dust in the air and most roads were full of dirt. The challenge was that animal fats used on the vehicle had an unpleasant odor and attracts insects.

In 1901, Frank Meguiar Jr. from the United States of America, founded a small furniture polish laboratory and used his polish for his furniture and also to coat the outside of cars. After a few years, George Simons, also from the United States of America, invented a cleaner and a carnauba wax product. They allowed it to sell in a few specific shops and let customers drop it off and pick it up later for a minimal fee. Although these did not last, since the wax wore away after a few days.

In the 1920s, 3M revolutionized the automobile and auto detailing industry by inventing the world’s first waterproof sandpaper and masking tape, which really helped car painters. In 1944, PlastoneTM developed the first bottled car wax by Ben Hirsch. It now commonly known as Turtle Wax. By the 1970s, the Japanese and European were using metallic based paints with a clear coat. This coat produced outstanding results in terms of hardness, long lasting color and gloss of the car. It was brought in the USA for 2-3 years, but it was not successful to many cars.

Over the years, people became creative and was able to invent more auto detailing products. In the 1990s, clay detailing bar treatment was introduced in Japan and in the USA. During this time, the two-paint system happened and perfected the clear coat system. Microfibers were also used during this time in Sweden and became a huge success in the Europe over the decade.
