    Does ECH2O change water behaviour?

    I've decided that I don't want to use toppers anymore on my car since re-coating my vehicle as I feel cquartz uk is a good stand alone topping, plenty hydrophobic and self cleaning, and seems to attract less dust that when I use hydro2 or reload or merlins magic mix. I do however love to use ECH2O at 20:1 for cleaning off the dust and light dirt as it rains quite a lot here. What I gather now, since going un-topped is that cquartz is supposed to be a big grabby rather than slick, and it is this that actually makes the car so hydrophobic. ECH20 does leave a slickness behind, and carpro states it does leave some sio2 as well, so what I'm wondering is If ECH20 does effect the performance of the base coating? I read another used uses eraser as a wipe down after ECH20, and have been doing that, but I'm not sure if it fully removes the slickness/protection component of ECH20? I don't want to foul or clog the base coating so I wonder if I should just be sticking to proper washes with reset?

    Does Ech2o have protection in it?

    Ech2o does have some Sio2 (quartz) protection in it BUT its main focus is on safely cleaning and glossing a variety of surfaces.

    Decon wash every few months and your coating will do just fine. EcH2O won't do much in affecting the coatings performance. It is already diluted at 1:20 which is a pretty low concentration of product.
