Fluorocarbon is also referred as perfluorcarbon, so calling it a different name does not diminish it.
The guy is using a Fluorocarbon powder overlay. When you apply the heat (whether cork or iron), yes, stays mostly at the top of the wax pores anyway. The powder that doesn't get absorb, the next step is to brush out the fluoro powder from the structure. If the Fluoro powder "clogs" the base (ie all the pores where wax is stored), somehow you need a solvent either dissolve the Fluorocarbon power or the type of hydrocarbon wax that allows the Fluoro powder to adhere, to enable the bristles of the brushes you use to dislodge the powder particles.
You spend a lot of time explaining why you need to properly scrape and brush a wax job, as well in your other videos, how and why you do things in great detail. You set yourself a high standard
But then you cover your ears and yell "La la la" and says Swix Glide Cleaner works because I sayz so, all while not trying to figure out why it works, you just don't meet the high standard you set for yourself.
You make the claim of the Glide Cleaner able to "clean the base" without affecting hydrocarbon wax in your video. So, if someone asks why (or how)? And you say "I don't know, but take my word for it anyway", it's hard to take it as fact, but it's rather just opinion.
So, when you use your butter per Dominator's instructions, do you go one step further and brush, brush, brush, to clean out the structure?
