Just seeing what everyone is using for:

1. The clear, hard, highly reflective look that impresses, regardless of cost.
2. A quality wax that takes a beating, even if it's not super-reflective.
3. The customer who is preoccupied with cost, but you want to do a good budget job.

Lately I've been using Betco Glare, selling for about $64 for 5 gallons for a good compromise wax, and it seems to impress people very well. I don't yet have much of an idea of its long-lasting quality since I recently started using it, but so far, so good.

I've picked up a floor wax job doing an upscale hotel reception area, and am searching for something that will definitely impress.

Buckeye Liquidmax or Buckeye Castlegaurd

Up-sell the fact you can strip less frequent because of the quality. 18 - 36 month strip cycle

Super solid finish
Microabrasion resistant
Works with buff or no buff programs
Does NOT powder when burnished
Does NOT yellow over time
Self-leveling without ridging

Also on the Buckeye, I've stripped out large stores with it and with some stores they only recieve strips every 2 years holding up extremely well. Its more expensive then the Betco or Johnsons, but its all preferance.. I know guys that don't like buckeye and prefer betco all day. I say try a few brands.

Betco Best is what we like, pricey for sure but you only need 2-3 coats
$150- 5 gallons

Betco Hard As Nails is what we use for budget jobs or construction clean up

This is what the distributor carries we buy janitorial from, if they carried johnson then we would buy timesaver or vectra.
No difference

I tried NCL one, and I really don't like it that much, it doesn't have enough defoamer imo, i didn't get the results i expected it.
I like Johnson time saver, high mileage and show place
Ecolab gemini so easy to apply, polaris harder to apply but good shine , and less coats to apply is the multi 25 (same as polaris but in direct applicator use bags).
