Paint Protection

CS Crystal Serum

Why use Gtechniq Crystal Serum?

Like no other product, Crystal Serum provides paint protection with previously unachievable levels of gloss, durability, scratch and chemical resistance.

Its composite structure offers the ultimate in ceramic protection plus the same slick finish and candy like gloss as the very best carnauba waxes.

The hard 9h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. Compared to standard ceramic coatings, Crystal Serum forms a relatively thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss.

Resistant to chemicals from ph2 to ph13, so when you clean your car, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easy to remove and will not harm your car's clear coat if removed within 12 hours.

Crystal Serum is unaffected by extreme heat changes, even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.

For the definitive hydrophobic finish it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO or C2.

C1Crystal Lacquer

Why use Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer?

C1 has been independently proven in the world's most respected weathering facility, it offers the best gloss retention of any other product tested. Over a simulated run of 3 years in Arizona sunlight, a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss than its next best competitor, and a third less gloss than the average score for all other products tested.

As well as gloss retention C1 Crystal Lacquer is extremely durable, as it actually becomes the functional surface of a car’s paintwork. Also scratch resistant, C1 forms a crystalline film which is extremely hard, this characteristic makes it effective at preventing minor scratching from poor wash technique on relatively soft automotive paint.

C1 coated panels have been tested against uncoated panels, as well as high-end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants.

On average, panels coated with Gtechniq C1, exhibited 50 percent less swirl marks than those coated with waxes or left uncoated.

EXO

Why use Gtechniq EXO?

EXO is Gtechniq's ultimate hydrophobic coating – it simply out-beads any other products on the market. By providing, a lotus leaf effect which repels dirt and water, EXO ensures your vehicles surface stays cleaner and glossier for much longer.

Based on the next generation of inorganic-organic hybrid materials EXO embodies Gtechniq's goal to offer products that work harder and smarter, meaning more time enjoying your car and less time maintaining it.

Simple to apply EXO offers the ultimate dirt and water repellency (it has a contact angle of 115 degrees), is resistant to regular wash chemicals.
