Hydr02 lite dry application

Anyone used hydr02 lite with a dry application, like a traditional spray on buff off sealant sealant like reload? How well has it performed and lasted? Tried it today over the top of carpro essence on a few panels comparing it to reload.

Using on black paint I still sometimes suffer from smearing / trails from reload but had no troubles with hydr02 lite today, but it didn't give the gloss I'd expect from reload.

Have you tried diluting reload 50:50 with water for dark cars I'm sure I read it before on the bottle I have. I use it on my black car and haven't had any issues so far but maybe maybe that's temperature related? I have also wondered about hydro 2 dry

Hydro lite can indeed be used on a dry car, with one small caveat that it's important to use multiple towels to apply and buff as after a few panels it will begin to cure in the microfibre and create drag and smearing.
Durability used on a dry car is a little bit longer than used on a wet car, at this time of year in UK you can expect 3-4 months due to the road salt etc.

Kind Regards
