If I had a dollar for every time a company selling something confuses the difference between "separation" and "turbulent", I wouldn't have to worry about the difference from my pool-side chair in Hvar.

Not really, most will put a clear coat on a car and that removes the orange peel.

what? most modern day cars have some level of orange peel mainly because the paint and clear coat are one step.

Orange peel isn't caused by that, its caused by poorly putting paint on to something.
