Finish Kare Products Inc

Written by:

Finish Kare is a detailing products manufacturer that started out creating mold release products. The step into car wax for protective purposes was a small change that was easy enough to make. The brand now offers a small range of cleaning, polishing, protecting and perfecting surfaces for both car and marine detailing.

Finish Kare history

Finish Kare was founded in 1964, and started out manufacturing mold release products for the composite industry. Their products prevent forms from sticking to the mold. The products used to achieve this have several similarities with automotive car wax, and due to the small step they had to make into paintwork protection, the next step was the release of car wax products. The quality of their car wax appeared to perform so good that they can even be successfully used on boats and other marine vehicles. Although a large focus of the company is still aimed at mold-release products, their protective products for cars and boats have earned a solid reputation in the detailing world. Finish Kare 1000p and BWM101 might be the most well known waxes from Finish Kare. The company is currently based in California, USA.

Finish Kare products

Although the brand always had a strong focus on the mold release products, it has stepped into automotive and marine detailing since it was founded. The current range of products includes compounds, polishes, shampoo, degreasers, protective products, dressing and sealants. The Hi-Temp Paste Wax with the white shark on the label is a common sight for many detailers and weekend warriors. Apart from the products offered by Finish Kare itself, they also provide custom solutions for clients who have very specific demands.

Common misunderstanding with 1000P

The following is a quote from the Finish Kare FAQ page:

BWM 101 is an Auto and Marine paste wax used as a finishing product. It creates a film that provides a high gloss finish and resistant against heat, water, and other natural elements.
1000P is a mold release wax and used in the composites industry to release parts. It also creates a high gloss finish.
In the past BWM 101 was all called BWM 1000P, but since there was confusion with our mold release product we’ve changed the name.

Company information

Finish Kare has its own company website for Finish Kare and is not overly active on social media such as Facebook. The company is not often seen on detailing related events or meetings, unless represented by a reseller or distributor. Finish Kare doesn’t seem to be very active on detailing fora or message boards.
