    Immolube is ready to use, not meant to be diluted.

    EDIT: Never mind, I was mistaken and the product is not RTU.

    CarPro recommends to dilute it.

    Dilutions:

    Claying 1:10 ~ 1:20.
    Wet Sanding: 1:15 ~ 1:20

    Primary Applications:

    Synthetic clay.
    Reduces unwanted marring.
    Wet sanding.

    Directions:

    Dilute to suit purpose and tool.
    Shake well.
    Spray over the sanding disc, or clay bar and over the work area.
    Begin sanding or claying, keep surface lubricated.
    Wipe off once complete or wash as needed.

    OK, my mistake then. I had read about it but I actually never used the product because I thought it wasn't meant to be diluted and thought the cost was too high. I use Glide with Nano Skin and find that it works pretty well, much better than ONR as clay lube.

    Immolube is good. Does get sudsy with a clay mitt or clay towel and loads up the wipe off towel. No suds with a clay bar. Only thing I don't like about it is that it needs a prep wipe to remove the residue. But it's pretty cheap considering the 1:10 dilution.

    I dilute it. It says on the bottle to do so, if Iím not mistaken. It didnít even come with a sprayer.

    Iíll have to check my bottle when I get home, but it says it on carpros website.

    I didnít have the issue of a prep wipe, but I just used it after I finished washing the vehicles Iíve used it on. Sprayed it out of a pump sprayer on to a wet car and went to town, then rinsed the residue off.

    It does say on my bottle to rinse it off, Iím not sure if itís always said that though. Itís definitely not the most convenient thing to use if you donít want to do that though, Iíll admit.

    I also always clay as I finish washing and then rinse the whole car again, never liked leaving some clay lube behind (potentially).

    A panel wipe is a must as CarPro states to remove the residue. You rinse it so that explains why you don't experience it. Plus the residue it leaves behind is not polymers or anything so it won't harm anything in the correction process if a bit is left behind.

    I have no desire to rinse again once I have the car in the garage. Does not seem as efficient but that is just me.

    No, but when I clay, I do so right after the wash and chemical decontamination, then do a final rinse. Some people finish the wash and then clay with the car already in the garage and just before polishing. I do all the prep the night before and then it can be completely dry in the morning for taping/polishing.
