    Best ‘dust repelling’ QD?

    I am testing/switching between Gtecniq QD, reload, Elixer and MG156.

    Used Elixer yesterday and pollen/dust seemed to be attracted to it like a magnet. Not sure if it was just an especially dusty day or what...

    Curious if people have thoughts on the best QD when it comes to dust repellency?

    I would have thought you’re on the right track using QDs meant for codings (excluding D156), but I guess Elixir doesn’t help much.

    Some old school ones people liked were FK425, Poorboys Spray and Gloss, BF WW with polycharger, UWW+ with polycharger, etc., but I never thought those did too much better than any other sealants as far as dust/pollen resistance.

    IMO:
    •Due to the existence of certain laws of Physics:
    -there are currently no “Best” dust repelling QDs;
    -or, as far as that goes, not even any: good, pretty
    good, or not so good ones.

    ***************************************

    •Perhaps, one day, the manufacturers of car-care
    products will be able to draw from the (very deep)
    NASA-well of Materials Sciences information, and
    be able to translate some of that information into
    reasonably priced dust mitigation systems/products
    for our vehicles.


    •And...With the near-future of vehicles now being
    geared toward them being “electrically powered”...
    -I can envision dust mitigation systems/products
    being something along the lines of an “Electrodynamic
    Dust Shield” (EDS):

    It’s pollen season right now. Wait a month or so and you’ll be perfectly happy with what you already have.

    There needs to be an Electrodynamic Dust Shield (EDS) button on the center console.

    Good find. I only use some products that they are already included in (BF Sealant/Synthetic Spray/WW, 4* UPP/Spray Wax, maybe Ultima Acrylic Spray Wax if I recall). I’ve never bought it for mixing on my own but I recall some others here doing it.

    Re: Best ‘dust repelling’ QD?

    I’m not sure which one is the best but I can almost bet Bead Maker is the worst. It seems to make the paint very static (as well as glossy and slick). That means dust and pollen stick really well to the paint. I’m about to give up using it completely.
