Can it, I won't be surprised if the answer is no, the clue being in the name.

Thanks mate, got some arriving Monday, trying to get my head round getting 3 months protection from something you spray on a wet car

Why would you want to apply Wetcoat to a dry car?

As with any LSP, to gain maximum benefit you should apply it to a freshly cleaned car, so directly after the final wash whilst the car is still wet is the optimum time to apply a product like Wetcoat.:thumb:

Thanks mate, just trying to get my head around the science of it all, at least when you apply, say a wax or sealant to a dry car,you can be certain that it has an even coating. Andy

I don't understand it either, need a degree in chemistry!

But it works though.

The water becomes the carrier for Wetcoat, when you rinse it the first time it carries over the panel, further rinsing intensifies the process. (my basic take on it anyhow)

So your saying the more you spread the water around the car when jetwashing off the better coverage you will get?

Within reason, I go round the whole car twice with the pressure washer, then a final rinse with an open flow. You will notice the beading increase more on the second rinse.:thumb:

Slightly off topic...

Bought some of this recently without really checking directions for application...can it go on top of other products or has it got to be applied to bare and fully prepped paint (IPA or panel wipe etc). I'm thinking likes of a glaze and say a wax and/or sealant.

Might sound a strange question but like the sound of its ease of use but at the mo haven't corrected wife's car so it needs other products on to hide swirls etc.

I cureently had Bouncers vanilla ice which the protection and beading had greatly reduced. with the bad weather i decided to stick some of this on with its easy application has worked fine left a nice deep gloss and has amazing beeding/sheeting
