    Sheeting wax

    Does Meguiars have any waxes or sealants designed to sheet water instead of beading?

    I don't quite understand why you want the salt water to bead on the paint and not run off.

    We do not. We tried that once, and everyone called & said the wax didn't last that long, because it was no longer beading water..

    Nick wouldn't NXT/M21 be a good product for the OP to consider purchasing as both sealants tend to sheet more than give the more aggressive water beading?

    Re: Sheeting wax

    I'm curious as well, I might get lucky and it is in the back of my dad's garage cabinets. I live near the Chesapeake bay and the brackish water spray is a PIA to deal with.

    Perhaps you could try bringing the sheeting wax back in the Marine line and pitch it as a car wax designed for the marine environment. Something like, It's so slick the salt water doesn't stick, and show a split panel wax job. One side normal wax with the salt water beads drying etching the wax and paint as it dries into the rings while the other side is still perfect since the salt water sheeted off.

    A version of the original NXT Tech Wax was designed to sheet water.

    Thank you for that.

    I've been using up all my leftover NXT waxes (org and 2.0) on my wheels and never noticed the sheeting.
