Cquartz by CarPro is a revolutionary nano technology SiO2 (silica) based glass coating whose protection is measured in terms of years, not months or seasons.
By applying Cquartz to your vehicle you are giving it a sacrificial semi permanent glass layer that will give a gloss level that is unmatched by conventional polymer and organic wax based protectants. CQuartz will not simply wash off like traditional paint sealants and will in fact resist harsh chemical based cleaners.
Because of glass coating technologies unique low surface energy formula it is able to fill and level paint ridges (capillaries) which in turn gives the coating a "self cleaning effect" also known as the lotus effect.
This means the coating actively rejects bonding of contamination and when water is introduced to the surface it carries the contamination off with it, this is also aided by the 110 degree water drop angle of CQuartz.
Additionally CQuartz will help resist scratching and minor marring both from maintenance washing procedures and in general driving use. With additional thickness on top of the manufacturers clear coat, CQuartz has the ability to both resist and absorb damage that commonly occurs to vehicle paintwork.
Vehicle maintenance has never been easier than with coating technology, CQuartz UKis complemented by CarPro Reset which is a specially formulated wash to maintain the coating operating at peak performance. CarPro Reload can then be applied as an additional temporary sacrificial layer for a 6 month durability as a standalone product, this not only aids in maintaining the coating but promotes an overall longer lifespan of the product.
Unlike conventional automotive protectants, CQuartz contains no wax or polymers, it will not wash off during regular maintenance procedures, requires no reapplication of the product, will resist harsh chemicals and acids (bird droppings, bat droppings, tree sap) as well as heavy cleaners such as bug and tar removers without compromising the protection.
CQuartz contains a high flourine content which is super resistant to mineral water spotting. If in the unlikely event you do notice mineral water spots, they can be removed with CarPro Spotless without removing the coating layer itself.
Gloss levels will remain for years, not months or weeks, and requires no polishing or buffing to maintain it.
Resistant to the buildup of traffic film
Average thickness is between 1 Âµm ~2.5 Âµm.
Minor swirl filling abilities
Two year durability
7H pencil hardness
Can be applied to Paint, Wheels, Chrome, Metals, Headlights and Glass
Can add multiple layers for increased gloss and durability
For product to reach maximum performance vehicle surfaces must be thoroughly washed and decontaminated with a clay bar and then followed with an iron removal process using CarPro Iron X
Any defects existing in the paintwork will be 'locked in' by the coating, heavy defects such as swirling and deep scratching and water spots may compromise coating performance and should be removed by a machine polisher before commencing coating
All polish oil and residue prior to coating must be removed by an IPA solution or CarPro Eraser
CarPro Essence can be used as a primer base coat to increase gloss and promote greater adhesion of CQuartz
Ensure adequate time and lighting for coating application and removal, failure to completely remove product residue in stated time as per application directions will lead to having to machine polish for removal and reapplication
Take out the applicator block and a suede MF towel from the kit and pour 5-6 drops of CQuartz
Apply to surface area in criss cross pattern in small sections, reapplying CQuartz to your applicator as necessary
Allow curing time of 25min - 5min at 15 degrees and 30 degrees respectively. We have found that a purple super soft aquatouch towel is optimal for coating residue removal, or you may use the included suede MF towel.
Once you have visibly removed all product residue from the surface, follow up a fresh suede towel from the kit in the same pattern you applied the product to ensure it's completely level and even
Repeat steps 1-4 across entire vehicle exterior until whole car is coated. Wait 2 hours before layering with another application of CQuartz or Reload
