    Wolfgang Uber SIO2 spray...

    I used the Wolfgang Uber spray coating about 3 weeks ago. Today after a wash I tried the Uber SIO2 spray on the hood. I think I shook it up first. I applied it in the shade and still this stuff streaked like crazy. Has anyone else had this issue?

    From my experience with Pinnacle Crystal SiO2 Spray, a comparable item, it’s a wipe on, let dry/haze, then wipe the haze off. Similar to a lot of traditional spray waxes.

    I assume though you are talking about streaks that would not come out after final buff?

    I think @Bearcats98 may have used this combo, or the SiO2 Paint Sealant followed by Uber SiO2 Spray. Calling on him, we’ll see if he has any insight.

    Yep. spray, wiped and buffed and streak city. Several hours later I tried a QD and it seemed to help but some streaks are still there.

    I’m sorry, that’s quite the surprise. Is it a black hood, was it pretty hot out?

    Actually, why I didn’t just think of this, but it has to be applied very sparingly. I’d suggest maybe trying it on anywhere else besides the hood. Do sparingly and hopefully it does much better for you. Once you feel comfortable with how little is needed, then perhaps try the hood again.

    I’ve had this problems many times with BF SiO2 Spray on black hoods. But light application usually prevails.

    It's a dark blue, 70% black. I tried using a suede MF and that didn't seem to make a difference. Could this be humidity related?

    are you working outside? if inside try putting 1 spray on microfiber and do 1/2 hood and wipe it in a bit longer till you really dont notice it anymore. then wipe down with second towel. it does not take but 1 spray per panel in my experience

    I was working outside. I'll try a lighter mist next time. Have you guys tried spraying it on the towel and then wiping it on?

    I would suggest having the towel damp with cold water. Then give the towel one spritz per panel you apply it too. Have a seperate towel for a buff off afterwards. Then with your damp towel that has some product on it (don't spritz anymore on) when you're done with the whole car, go ahead and if you see any streaks, wipe with the damp towel and then re-buff.

    I'm assuming based on your comment that the SIO2 spray is water based. I was wondering if water would help.

    No, it has nothing to do with whether or not it's water based. It's because you're giving the solvent more liquid to try to dry off or flash and leave the streaks behind. Basically, it gives you more time because now there's more liquid to dry, so you're buying yourself more buffing time.
