It's always possible. It's pet of the experimentation.

Anyone remember years ago on DW there was a popular product that came as a clear liquid that you'd ADD to your sealant or liquid wax to POWER BOOST it's performance?!

Contact angle has a lot to do with the texture of the paint work. A very smooth surface will sheet well and bead the water that is left.

Look at nano sealants etc, the actually cause a chemical reaction which creates nano tubes on the paint.

Those nano tubes push the water up off the paint but also contain it in the bead so you get taller beads.
