Our Story




Gliptone car wax has been a New York tradition of quality since 1947. Sold locally, car enthusiasts came to understand that quality ingredients with quality process equal the finest products. As a non-advertised brand, Gliptone’s popularity grew by word of mouth. Satisfied customers were eager to pass on their secret to a durable finish with a deep, rich shine. We continue to keep true to our purpose, developing the ultimate quality products for today's paint finishes without sacrificing the quality started in 1947.

Today the Gliptone offering includes a full line of Professional Automotive Reconditioning Products, Professional Car Wash Tunnel Chemicals and Retail packaged car care products. This includes our famous Body Gloss, Wash N' Glow, Original Carnauba Paste and Cream Waxes, Liquid Metal Polishes, and our world renowned #1 Rated Leather Cleaner and Conditioner.

Gliptone products are used by top detailers around the world. Our distributors and end-user customers have found our selection of detail supply items to be the highest quality and most useful in today's fast paced, results driven detailing industry. Perhaps most famous of this group is the Gliptone range of premium quality Softouch Microfibre Towels.

Gliptone maintains a commitment to professionalism, the environment and industry support through our dedication to Green Chemistry, environmentally friendly manufacturing practices, ongoing support to numerous trade schools to help further educate young technicians on the proper reconditioning practices being used in today’s workforce, as well as membership in many industry trade organisations such as SEMA, AAPEX and ICA.
