    Wolfgang Si02 rinseless wash leaves haze

    Hey guys,
    just recently switched from ONR to the Wolfgang si02. My technique is using one ounce in a gallon or two of water for the wash mitts and I also have diluted solution in a pump sprayer in which I pre spray the entire car before I start. Well anyway, I follow the dilution ratios pretty closely and I get hazing on some of the panels and front side windows. Using ONR previously, I never got the haze.

    thoughts or suggestions? I really like the slickness of the si02 especially since all my vehicles are ceramic coated with Wolfgang or BF ceramic.

    Thanks everyone!

    The directions say to do a section at a time and immediately dry. Based on that, I wouldn't prespray with it.

    I didn’t see that. I wonder if I could prespray one panel at a time though…then dry?

    Scale back your dilutions.

    Directions call for 1 oz per 2 gallons. You say your putting "one or two" in your bucket. With a ceramic component adding more is likely not a good idea and is possibly the reason for your hazing. With regular RW's, adding a little extra usually doesn't have any negative effects but with si02 based RW's, one has to be more cautious.

    And skip the pre rinse. Your dilution in your bottle here is likely too strong.

    Honestly I think pre rinsing is waste of time and product. I have been doing RW for many years now and I have NEVER needed to pre rinse. As long as you use a good practice and common sense, you can clean the paint (even when its heavily soiled) without marring.

    You most certainly can pre-soak a panel with it and wash it. People always have an issue when trying to make the pre-soak and the easiest solution to make it is to dunk your spray bottle or pump sprayer into the bucket of solution that has already been made. You may have to shrink your area down depending on the weather and work smaller areas.

    Thanks guys! I will try a lower dilution and perhaps skip the presoak unless it’s quite dirty (winter months).
    I think a panel at a time will help too.

    Keep the pre-soak. I would rather have more lubrication and allow the prosciutto to encapsulate whatever is on the surface. I gave you the best method to make your pre-soak.

    I know it’s autocorrect strikes again, but I love to think that fancy ham could be the next revolution in paint care.
