    Re: Can you convince me?

    I think it’s ok, but since you hopefully aren’t taking out many defects at this rate, stick with a non-aggressive pad (LC white or green for example) and not too many passes, since you shouldn’t need...

    Re: Best Sio2 spray ceramic

    PA High Gloss, PA Cosmic, BF SiO2 are all good. The PAs bead amazing but cost the big bucks.

    Re: Product shelf life. Wolfgang

    It’s a watery Sealant. If it doesn’t look separated after shaking well and it doesn’t smell wired/bad, it should be fine.
  4. Re: Sealant product recommendation: Looking for durability, longevity, hydrophobic properties, appearance, and ease of application

    M21 is OK, I have the same big jug (64oz). There’s a lot that’s better though. It doesn’t seem very durable. Beading only lasts a few weeks and is mediocre at best. Shine and filling are nice but...
  5. Re: Lite coatings vs. MK36 10 min paint sealant vs sealants

    I’ll let the coating guys speak for lites vs real coatings, but I’ve been using SiO2 maintenance sprays for a bit now and have experienced no spotting problems, nothing close yet. The ones I’ve...

    Re: New Collinite quick detailer

    I’ll combine lack of water beading plus multiple observations of no added shine being noticed to come to the conclusion that this does not offer decent protection and/or the type of protection I am...

    Re: New Collinite quick detailer

    520 may be more of a cleaner than a protectant. Kind of the opposite of today’s popular QDs (BSD for instance). For this reason it seems people are having trouble finding a great use for it since...

    Re: Britemax Remax vs. Reload

    Echoing Desertnate, slickness and beading/selfcleaning are not direct relations by any means. PNS and BSD are the two sealants with best beading and worst slickness. Most other sealants are VERY...
  9. Re: Mequiar's Gold Class Premium Quick Deailer (weekly use question)?

    EcH2O at 1:7 sounds like a streaker on black paint... maybe start off more conservatively at 1:20 or 1:15 and work your way stronger.

    Re: New Collinite quick detailer

    The behavior will be HCW topped with Collinite 520, correct? If so, can you compare to the HCW portion as well?
  11. Re: Mequiar's Gold Class Premium Quick Deailer (weekly use question)?

    The GC Quick Wax is better to maintain as it provides additional protection in synergy with your base GC Liquid. The GC Liquid isn’t very durable so the extra quick wax should help extend.

    I may...

    Re: Car attracts dust more now

    I haven’t, most do opposite as SiO2’s prefer cleaner paint than polymer’d paint to sit on... but it should only impact longevity. But... some SiO2 sprays like BF are said to do fairly well on top of...

    Re: Car attracts dust more now

    BeadMaker can attract dust for sure, as can carnauba products. For your situation, coatings or SiO2 sprays may repel better... but on a dusty road you will always get some dust. Some sealants are...
  14. Re: Are we making things worse by using multiple products for topping up?

    I did the same as you all winter, over Collinite 915. I don’t think using all sorts of different toppers is great for the paint and behavior, but I have seen some random, really-good-shine days...

  23. Re: Renny Doyle Beadmaker Revisited - 2month Standalone Review

    The beading/water behavior is horrific, no doubt. In non-rainy climates this significant disadvantage becomes less of an issue, but it’s hard to ignore in the Northeast.

    Re: Older bottle of WDGPS 3.0, still good?

    If it feels/looks ok, I would use it and see. Longevity might be fine. People have bottles for long times and many report no problems.
