    Zaino

    Just bought a Zaino kit. I have some of Prima's products and Menzerna but have not used Zaino yet and with all the rage on here thought I would give them a whirl.

    Have you used Prima and Zaino and how would you say they compare?

    Is Prima a wax or polish? Zaino's a polymer-based polish, so be sure you apply it as such (very thin coats). Otherwise, you're wasting product.

    Honestly...probably aren't going to see better results with either. Both will work great, I just prefer Prima/Menzerna.


    Prima makes wax, polish, sealants, leather care, interior care, quick detailers, etc...
    Depends on which product...they have an extensive line.

    No experience with Prima. Zaino for 5-6 years now. If you use it correctly, it works and works well. The first time you use Zaino, its labor intensive. You will think, what did I get myself into. The upkeep after the initial time is very simple and not labor intensive.

    Basicly....it comes down to what works for you.
    No need to have a TON of products for 1-2 cars. Get what you need and what you like.

    If it is Zaino, go for it.
    Prima, use that.
    No real need for both...unless you have plenty of money to toss around.

    Pick your preference and stick with it, no need for 2.

    I'm going to do some detailing on the side and just wanted to try it out. I have 3 vehicles and want to make my decision on what I like and what system works best for me. I figure it's not that much money one way or the other.

    I'm not sure with Prima. But with Zaino, the initial cost sometimes freaks folks out, but when use properly, Zaino pays for itself, because of its durability on a finish. I've been using Zaino for about 8 years now and love the results it produces.

    I like Prima and have been very happy with it just want to see how things compare. I've heard nothing but good things about Zaino. I like the ZFX on the Zaino because you can work quicker and if you are doing someone elses car it helps speed things up. Mr. Lous the website for Prima is their corporate website but does not list all of their products. I've dropped them an e-mail with a request for their full product line.

    The ZFX isn't necessary anymore, since they came out with the Pro line with their Z2 and Z5 polishes. They're both formulated to go on and cure quicker than ever before.

    Pro line? I got one of their kits does that include ZFX does that mean that it's not the Pro Line? That's what I love about forums is there's always something to learn.

    Look on the bottle, There is a Z2 Pro and the older version is just Z2. Same thing with Z5 Pro and Z5.

    Goose YOU HAVE IT! I ordered my Prima product from you previously but had missed at the bottom of the page where there are 3 pages of Prima product. Thank you not even the Prima corporate site has their full product line. I'll be ordering more Prima from you to round out my collection here. Thanks again for the help!
