    •OK...
    Which of these two water behavior
    characteristics is it going to be:
    -Sheeting; or:
    -Beading?

    Yeah, I think some people confuse when the beads run off the car as "sheeting", when apparently you and I consider sheeting to be an absence of beading where the water lays out in a "sheet" on the surface.

    Re: Product that has best water sheeting

    I don't want beading. Why would I want water sitting on my car in any shape or form? It looks like hell in my opinion. I don't need beading to tell me the paint is protected, in fact, I think beading can be misleading whereas true sheeting simply does not occur unless there is a wax or sealant present. To me, sheeting is indicative of a sealed surface. I want the water to run off all surfaces as fast as possible - the faster the water leaves the surface the faster the car will be dry and the cleaner the paint will be. Net Polymer Shield and an occasional topper of Brilliant Shine beads a little but sheets water very well. Look at this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QG4SAvcg-9M

    since it is going to be use where rain and water is frequent. as also this will save me time from having to wipe out the car at end of the day and avoid water spot as well.

    so its sheeting.

    This guy tested 3 in 1 (13:33 mark) and it appears to sheet pretty well.

    Finally Got to Try Griot's Garage Ceramic 3 in 1 Wax! Wow It's Ridiculously Good! - YouTube

    what NJNinja posted... i have used Griots 3 in 1 wax and its a win win for me... dont have to wait for shipping and 6 to 8 months with little loss of sheeting and beading, washing with a ph natural soap like mckees37 extreme foam than dry using 3 in 1 wax

    Hard to get any product that will get enough water on the car in the rain to sheet it off. True sheeting of environmental water not possible with current products. Sr Beasley explains it well.

    Which Is Better For Your Finish, Beading or Sheeting?

    Better to have a coating that beads with a hogh contact angle. This causes the beads to roll off well. Still a problem standing still though, like any wax or sealant.

    I always get a kick out of these threads/questions.

    If you have any type of reputable LSP on your paint, it will be protected.

    Coatings, sealants, hybrids, or pure waxes. It does not matter. While standing still, water WILL bead on any one of them. And if left to dry (evaporate), there WILL be accumulated dirt left behind.

    And yes, I know that coatings are "easier to clean", but ironically, they are also more susceptible to water spotting.

    Either way you slice it, we all have to accept the fact that our cars/trucks will get dirty. And no LSP on this earth will change the fact that we have to periodically wash them..........
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.
