If you have used Beaut Beads on that special car that doesn't get driven very often, and spends most of its life undercover, you can expect it to last 6-8 months.
We've found in our testing, that using Mega Snow Job can be detrimental to Beaut Beads, so stick to one of our pH neutral snow foams for regular maintenance.
On a daily driven car that sees more of the elements, you can apply our synthetic super hydrophobic sealant Bead Machine, which shares a similar base polymer to allow Bead Machine to bond to the Beaut Beads without the use of Flash Prep. In our testing, we have found this combination is very durable and can last up to 4-6 months - the Bead Machine boosts the longevity of the Beaut Beads significantly. Note that this is not an essential step. We never recommend applying the Bead Machine first, because the solvents required to spread the wax will affect the Bead Machine layer, making it a fruitless task.
In between applications, you can also use Happy Ending or Wet Dreams as quick maintenance top up products if you wish, for lower sections of doors where the protection might have taken a hit. Only use these as needed - they're not necessary for Beaut Beads to work well, but all of these products share a similar chemistry, so they will all play nicely together.
Have a look at our flow chart here which breaks down the order of use we recommend for these products.
