    Gyeon products not playing nice together

    I coated my Subaru with Gyeon Mohs two weeks ago. I followed the instructions and got good results for the most part. I had one high spot but it was not too noticeable on my dark grey paint. I used Gyeon cure afterwards with nice results. This weekend I washed the car with Gyeon Bathe but wanted to coat my rims so I took a shortcut and used Gyeon Wetcoat instead of the Cure. It was 70 degrees out and I was in a coin op stall out of the sun. I sprayed the whole car and pressure washed it off. Once I got out in the sun I noticed the Wetcoat left my beautifully coated paint full of streaks. Why did this occur when all these products are designed to work together?

    Spray and rinse coatings have a tendency to streak if they are not rinsed off very well or if the are allowed to dry (like if you are working in the sun). Sorry to say, but it sounds like an application issue rather than an issue with the product or compatibility.

    One or two panels at a time when using spray and rinse products.

    Do one panel at a time
    spray on, pressure rinse off, then flood surrounding areas
    repeat till all panels done..

    Dry car. Or it will streak

    It's vital to only use Wet Coat on a panel at a time. Move to the next panel once you throughly rinsed down the previous panel.

    Re: Gyeon products not playing nice together

    I've found with Wetcoat it's best to spray a couple of panels and thoroughly rinse off. If you have a spare wash mitt, spray a couple of panels, wipe in, pressure rinse off and then keep going round the car.
    I always dry with Cure as some streaks occur.
    But in future if it's quite a warm or hot day, wash your car with Bathe or Bathe+, rinse thoroughly and the dry each panel at a time with Cure.
    The only time I don't follow Wetcoat with Cure is when I do the wheels.

    For see reason I find it odd that Wetcoat has better durability than Cure. For some unknown reason I would initially think it was the other way around.

    Wetcoat is more an easy apply able base. It's far easier to apply than the ceramic sealants and easier to apply than the Cancoat and with each, Cure can be used as a drying aid, quick detailer or merely a top up to extend the life of the base product used post wash.
    Cure essentially acts as a sacrificial more repelling coat.
