    Re: Hydrophobic vs Slickness vs Self Cleaning

    The sliding angle is the most important value on how the water droplets run off on the different LSP. A high contact angle don't necessary means a low sliding angle. So it's also different from how the angles is on a certain car modell in how effective the water beading rolls. And think this is also how fast and how uniform the sheeting of water is depending on the sliding angle too. The lower sliding angle you get the easier water runs off.

    Re: Hydrophobic vs Slickness vs Self Cleaning

    i'm a powerlock guy and have tried some AIOs which honestly I think may actually have better self-cleaning properties. But I just can't accept that they're not as smooth to the touch or bead as well. I would inherently judge them after I finished the job and almost chalked them up to being inferior. It's such a dumb thing for my brain to fuss over as not many people you meet ask if they can touch your car, in fact etiquette is to not touch someones car haha. And beading is just this thing we've fallen in love with, when sheeting can actually be better for your car.

    I will say though that powerlock has always given me a much nicer, deeper and glossier finish which is why I am so loyal to the stuff.
