    Yes i know that... hydrophobic beading has a tendency to stay on the paint in little ball(beads)...

    As j.salmon says it is so smooth it probably doesnt bead... well this would mean the sealant has a hydrophilic property which means despite it not beading into little balls its more of a flat bead therefore sheets off the panel better and does as quoted above...


    Just doesnt look as cool!

    Still wouldn't be true In theory sounds good lol but wouldn't be true.

    So someone out there is selling a hydrophilic wax? They need their head checking, wax is a lipid and all lipid bilayers are hydrophobic
