CarPro Reload Not Behaving As It Should??

Did my mate's missus' car as a favour last week Wednesday. Car was covered in fallout so thorough clean and decon followed by protection was the order of the day.

Been sent some pictures today less than a week after 2 coats of Reload were applied and the water behaviour is not what I was expecting or have seen before from Reload.



Car was thoroughly washed, fallout removed with Autoglanz Trade Fallout and de tar with Valet Pro Citrus Tar & Glue. Clayed with BH Regular Clay then an IPA wipedown before 2 coats of Reload about 20 minutes apart. One cloth for application, second for buffing.

Now is it just me or is that not right? Car has been driven around 40 miles in dry weather.

The only thing I could think that would cause it is either cloth being contaminated or bad batch of product - thoughts?

Cheers

Matty

Is the car kept anywhere near trees or substantial foliage bud? It's an LSP killer this time of year.

Could it just be that there's a build up of dust or similar from where it's been standing? Give a couple of different panels a wash and see how they perform after that.

My mate is going to give it a wash this Friday, he knows 2BM with foam and safe wash techniques. I've told him to wash with CarChem 1900:1 and no QD afterwards then see what the water behaviour is like.

Could be just dirt or sap though, thanks chaps. There is definitely a hint of dirt in that picture

Definitely just needs a maintenance wash, your decon sounds spot on so I wouldn't worry.

Update on this chaps - my mate washed the car today using a ph neutral snow foam and 1900:1. Full safe wash and the water behaviour hasn't changed. He sent me a video showing very slow sheeting and poor beading, very flat and misshaped rather than the usual contact angle you would get from Reload after a week and a half!

I'm baffled, any ideas?

May sound daft but did you give the bottle a shake before application?

I certainly did Imran, and continued to shake it as I went round the car every few panels don't TAC systems do a similar product?

It's certainly not normal.

You had a bad batch or it went on top of something non agreeable.

Probably the latter.
