Gyeon Wet Coat vs AF Aqua Coat vs Beadjuice

Which one you prefer and why? Are there any durability differences?

I've used Wetcoat and bead juice and was with a mate when we did his car with aqua coat.

In my opinion Wetcoat and Beadjuice have me similar results and durabity. I would choose bead juice as it works out a bit cheaper and it can also be applied dry which i don't think Wetcoat can.

Aquacoat i dont rate and initial results werent as good as the other two.

I am thinking though of trying Wetcoat concentrate meaning I can choose my dilution rate to see how that goes.

I've used wetcoat and beadjuice on my wheels and found that beadjuice gave more protection in that brake dust could be very nearly totally removed with the pressure washer.

Opposite effect with wetcoat, brake dust was quite clingy with that on. Was topping up both each wash so no idea on durability.

Bead juice for me. Lasted longer and dry application for days when you have that little bit more time.

I've used beadjuicd, wetcoat and Carpro hydr02 lite.

Not sure on durability as they're typically used through winter and regularly topped up. But for water behaviour I would marginally say wetcoat performs better. Ease of application would be beadjuice.

I have only tried Bead Juice but it is superb, I have always done it via the wet application because it is so easy and the water behaviour and the beads are awesome.

I reckon you could easily get a month out of it, but I alternate two weekly between Bead Juice and Sonax BSD, as they are sat on top of BH DSW (over winter). I guess that makes it harder to tell which product is still working. The Bead Juice will more than likely go away after winter.

I’m interested to see that people apply it dry, a friend of mine uses it and for the first time he tried it, he did a dry application and struggled to get it off, so it put me off and i’ve only done it wet. Must go back and try it.

Sounds like a good excuse too get all three and try them out

I've applied hydr02 lite very the dry method. Applied it like any generic spray sealant or QD. Sprayed on the panel and spread with a MF. A separate MF to remove. No issues at all

Like Yellow Dave said I use it through winter as well and tends to get topped up when it's still protecting but I'd say I've had at least 2 month between top ups and again didn't notice a difference between wetcoat and beadjuice. Haven't had the issues that Tim had either might be dependant on the style of alloys?
