Car cosmetics includes dozens of products for various purposes which may seem mind-boggling to an inexperienced user. We have decided to explain the differences between the most popular K2 cosmetics and their most professional equivalents from the K2 Pro line.
Before we get to it, it its worth noting that all Pro-line products were designed with professional users in mind – such as car detailing studios. That is why we use convenient bottles with measurements, which allows to control the level of the product remaining in the bottle.
K2 Gold series products are intended for hobbyists and fans of can cosmetics as well as car enthusiasts. The white and gold boxes contain, among others, applicators and microfibre cloths which will prove useful for using the product.
Our article includes comparisons of the following products:
K2 Roton and its stronger version Pro
Can you fix something that already works? Yes, you can. The extremally effective K2 Roton liquid for washing rims has finally received an even stronger version. Apart from changing the packaging to one litre bottle with measurements, improving the product review, we have improved the product formula, which now has a consistency of a gel.
The gel formula ensures improved adherence to the cleaned area, which allows the product to remain longer on the rim, and thus has more time to penetrate the dirt. In results, it has become even more effective.
The characteristic aroma of this line of products has been subdued in the Pro version and is not as intense as in the case of K2 Roton.
Both products guarantee effective cleaning, both can also be used as deionizer for cleaning paint from residual metallic particles.
What is the difference between K2 Sigma and K2 Sigma Pro
The K2 Sigma Pro tyre dressing now provides a long-durability formula and a greater shine. Pro version also comes in a 1 litre capacity. The standards K2 Sigma box included sponge applicator and a 500 ml bottle.
Both products have a pleasant cherry fragrance, they are exceptionally efficient. When left on a tyre they ensure high gloss, and after wiping with a cloth – satin finish.
K2 APC and two new versions K2 APC Pro
The professional versions of K2 APC include 2 products. The version with a natural pH K2 Neutral Pro now includes a strengthened formula and a litre bottle with a measurement. Similarly to K2 APC, working with the product ensures an original, fresh smell.
K2 APC Strong Pro is a stronger formula with an alkaline pH It ensures even greater cleaning power and is able to tackle even the most difficult dirt at adequate concentration.
K2 APC Pro Strong now also has a new, lemon scent.
K2 Satina and K2 Satina Pro – differences
The professional version of K2 Satina dressing for plastic includes a new scent, or rather a lack of any scent.
K2 Satina Pro fragrance free is a scent-free version of the product. It is designed for works in cars, where we to not want to affect the scents already present in the car.
If the inside of your car is filled with your favourite scent, and you do not wish it to mix with the scent of cleaning chemicals – pick the fragrance-free version.
Satina Pro includes enhanced durability of the product, and the effect will last longer.
Quick detailer K2 Spectrum vs K2 Spectrum pro
K2 Spectrum Pro liquid wax is the most spectacular change after the famous Roton.
Professional, black version of the quick detailer has gained a completely new, revolutionary formula. K2 Spectrum Pro means an even greater durability, enhanced colours, and easier reach.
K2 Spectrum Pro perfectly handles water marks, and the product gives out and intensive, fruity scent.
K2 Spectrum in a box works really well, in particular for newer, less damaged paints, and the set contains 770ml of the product along with a microfibre for polishing.
Both products should be used each time after the cars is washed, especially when wax is applied to the paint; the was effect will be additionally pronounced by Spectrum.
Active foam and its Pro version
The Pro Version of the K2 Bela active foam now features a stronger cleaning formula. Similarly to the K2 version in a box, it has a neutral pH and is safe for the waxes and protective coatings on the paint.
The products is available in three scented versions: tasty blueberry, refreshing Sunset Fresh and citrus Energy Fruit.
K2 Vena and K2 Vena Pro – hydrophobic hair shampoo, safe for wax
The Pro edition of the K2 Vena shampoo features a new scent (balloon gum), improved cleaning abilities and increased hydrophobicity.
Hydrophobic shampoo is designed for people owning protective coatings (e.g. waxes) on the paint. Due to its neutral pH, the shampoo does not damage the coating, and effectively removes the dirt.
K2 Klinet Pro vs K2 Klinet
Paint inspection agent, i.e. The popular IPA is a great companion to each fan of car cosmetics. It is used to prepare the surface before the application of other products or to verify the factual condition of the pain, typically covered by a layer of waxes and rinse aids.
This process requires the use of a high-quality manufactured product. K2 Klinet Pro meets these requirements.
Low-quality IPA is often a residue of other production processes (it is a waste) instead of specifically manufactured product, and thus may include compounds with an adverse effect on the paint.
K2 Nuta vs K2 Nuta Pro
Both products will be more than capable of handling their main tasks, i.e. Washing windows without leaving streaks.
The advantage of the Pro version lies with the fact that it will evaporate from the cleaned surface much quicker. That is why, it allows to save time when cleaning windows in comparison to the traditional K2 Nuta.
Nuta PRO 2K also features a completely new scent. The aroma of the green apple makes working with the product more pleasant and provides very pleasant experience.
Invisible K2 wiper and its Pro version
Unlike the invisible wiper in a gold bottle, K2 Vizio Pro is a complete set for applicating water repellent coating on the glass. I addition to 150ml coating, the box contains a sponge applicator and application wipes.
The new product formula ensures it increased durability. The black version of the invisible wiper remains on the surface of the cleaned glass for a longer time and ensures even better drainage of water from the surface of the glass.
In conclusion, you already know the differences between the popular K2 products and their professional counterparts. Before deciding, please remember that K2 products in gold packaging are created for cosmetics enthusiasts and provide an exceptional effect. Available in boxes with additional accessories seem to be an interesting proposition.
The set also includes microfibre for Spectrum wax, sponge applicator for K2 Sigma or skin brush in K2 Auron set.
