I washed the car in the shade. Surface was cool to the touch. Not sure about residue, as I then washed the whole car with BTBM and my wash mitt. Rinsed it all off, same result. Perhaps it can strip a sealant, but not a wax?

Perhaps, maybe there's just something about that sealant in particular that doesn't play well with BHAF. I've had Autoglanz SynthSeal on my car without wax for quite a while in the past and never saw it's durability reduced by BHAF.

Suppose it could just be a bad batch of foam. Unlikely but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

in some cases this applies, but as a general rule the higher ph the stronger the product. BHAF is a strong product.

What is the pH when it's at 4% - so 40ml Autofoam and 960ml water, for example?

What "pattern", as I said earlier I've been using it for years via a pump sprayer, as many others have, and it's never degraded my LSP. Try a different wax/sealant.

Did you make sure you mixed the solution properly before use. I can imagine some just stick it in the sprayer and off they go without giving it a good shake first.

Best thing to do is apply hyd20 again and see if the results differ. It may of been a one off, this way seems a more accurate way of seeing what's going on

The mixture was stated earlier. It is 40ml AF 960ml water.
There was a pattern. The use of a pump sprayer. But after more comments, the pattern is obsolete. I've washed the car and reapplied HydrO2. Time will tell folks. I don't think it's a bad batch because it's the same 5L I've been using for a while now. Unless....there is a use by date?

You misunderstand me. I get you have the dilution correct but did you give your spray bottle a good shake before using, otherwise the PIR may not be totally accurate.

With it being used a 4% which is alot stronger solution than most other snow foams, so compared to other snow foams its still stronger than most.
