    Bead Maker question

    I'm interested in Bead Maker and have a few questions about it.

    I know the protocol is to lay down a sealant first, and then wax....since sealants aren't supposed to go over wax. BUT....I believe Bead Maker is considered a (short term) "sealant"....in which case, shouldn't wax go over it rather than it going on top of wax? Which would then keep Bead Maker from being a true LSP "topper"?

    LOL...I'm having a little fun here, but at the same time I am seriously interested in hearing how people view and use Bead Maker. What are some "waxes" or sealant/waxes that you have used BM as a topper for? And what other coatings can BM be used as a topper for? I'm guessing it's similar to a spray wax, only has more polymer (sealant) characteristics than carnauba (wax) ???

    I used it right after polishing and juts use it as a drying aid after washes. From what Iíve heard itís compatible with most waxes sealants etc

    I’ve only put it over PA Carnauba. Needless to say, the gloss didn’t get any better, but it seemed as though the BeadMaker adhered fine.

    Thanks for the heads up. The video they put out just today explains pretty much exactly what I was asking about:

    Cool Re: Bead Maker question

    Hopefully THIS thread doesn't go south like others have had (clearing my throat)...My advice to you is this, buy the small bottle and try it for yourself. If there's a forum member whom you trust in, follow their advice on how to apply it and what to expect. That said, as you probably already know but if not, here's my take on the product. If your looking to "boost" your finish for a carshow or cars and coffee or just wanna add a little something during the drying process, look no further than Beadmaker! In "my" experience, the gloss left behind if very noticeable and the paint is very slick, you'll feel this right away while applying it, its undeniable. On the flip side, DO NOT expect this product to last a long time and I would not use it as a stand alone, period! This product has a life span of about a month on a DD in usual conditions. The mfg claims 1-3 months and that's fine to say because it could last 3 months, on a non-DD. In closing on my old car which was metallic black, this product worked OUTSTANDLY (made up a word there) and I was very intune with my paints finish, this is why I know the product works....for me.

    Keep us posted when you get the product and your thoughts about it. If by chance you feel this product is going to work for you, the gallon makes more sense and cents, saves cents actually

    Re: Bead Maker question

    If I wasn’t allergic to sending snail mail, especially large packages, I would send OP my 7/8 of a gallon.

    Try it, if you do like it, you can actually get the gallon for close to $20.

    Pittsburgh, not quite close enough. I sometimes visit to Chi-town for Thanksgiving but can’t see myself smuggling BM on an airplane.
