    Is it that low on the lubrication?

    If you get towel marring these days with all of the quality mf drying towels. I would look at my technique when drying or toss the towel that you get towel marring from. This is after a bucket wash. Could be a different story when doing WW and RW.

    And from the little I have used drying aid. I experienced that the drying towel got less effective to soak up water and hold it. Also took many washes before my favorite drying towel was back to normal. Think that the BSD and another QD I have used made the drying towel hydrophobic. Also the whole point with how a mf drying towel is made is degrading the effectiveness from them with the use of drying aid. As those I tested when sprayed on the sitting water broke the water tension. That's a big part why drying towels and ordinary mf towels can hold water with the water tension and the capillary holding ability from them. The need of buffing of the streaking I got would actually be a bigger risk for towel marring. Than just lay out the drying towel and gently drag it towards me. And get a completly dry paint with one drag. If you would have a very scratch sensitive paint. I would use the padding technique with a very plush mf drying towel. The risk would be very minimal for towel marring that way.

    I really don't think most basic QD's are going to leave much behind to really interfere with the coating properties.

    Drying aid after applying Hydro Blue Sio2 coating.....

    Didnít read through the thread, but if youíre just after lubrication while drying a clean but damp surface I think any rinseless wash at its standard wash dilution would do just fine.

    I use a bottle of ONR mixed up at 256:1 for that purpose sometimes and I feel itís more than adequate. I donít need the superior lubricity of a waterless wash if all Iím doing is trying to get some lubrication to use a drying towel on the surface.

    To clarify. Extender spray wax was used as a drying aid after using their 10-min paint sealant. Not hydro blue. My fault. But ESW is mostly polymer based, so I don't see how it would hurt over hydro blue.

    I have a few different QD's and rinseless washes I can give a try. I had a thought on the rinseless wash, but here in Louisville we are having rain almost everyday the last 2 weeks.

    I talked to Nick and he said that anything with wax in it would hurt the Hydrophobic Properties and said to use the 10-min paint sealant. I have 2 bottles left of the Blackfire Crystal seal, but I have yet to buy any of the 10-min paint sealant. I do have some Extender was I can try.

    ESW is geared towards being a drying aid or topper for: Mckees Paint Coating, 10 Min Paint Sealant and Hydro Blue. It has small amounts of SiO2 and the polymers in it are very light, it was created to not impact the properties of these SiO2 LSPs.

    I personally still think it masks the characteristics of really good SiO2 sprays, but I’ve never seen bad results using it with 10 Min or Hydro Blue.

    Or as others have stated, OP doesn’t need a drying aid after Hydro Blue, it already sheds so much water.
