    Yes. If it rains it beads a lot..well, the little water that manages to stay on is beaded, but when I wash it the water wont stay on the paintwork at all

    My car has about 8 layers of dust/tree sap/mud and volcanic ash.
    I think you'll find that offers much better protection than this 'wax' people keep talking about.

    From the test I can see that the aquartz is certainly showing its hydrophilic nature now. Very slow but complete sheeting as it is dependent on gravity and not the product repelling the water Aqaurtz philosophy is that if a product slowly sheets water complexly in a rain shower. Not by volume it will carry away any particles that have settled on the surface. Beading has a habit of leaving water spots of grime, due to evaporation. But the problem happens when it is airborne pollutants that has settled on the surface as these can in some case be very dangerous chemicals and only get stronger with evaporation. Once in solution.
    Quoted from a very clever person haha!

    Hmm very dumb-clever person

    You should write them a very strongly worded letter and show them the error of their ways lol

    philic means "like" and phobic means "doesn't like"
