We encourage you to write down any questions you have, do your own research, and give us a call so we can help you get your vehicles looking better than the day they came out of the factory and keep them that way for years to come.

GOOD: 18-24 Months of Protection

More Info

With EXOv3, Gtechniq broke the mold of durable coatings.  For the first time, this category of coating offered a warm gloss look, slick finish, and unsurpassed water repellency.
 Gtechniq is always pushing the limits of performance coatings. Intense experiments and real world tests with a new ground-breaking, hard, organic material revealed we could offer a leap forward in the performance of EXO. Tests have proved conclusively that the harder material offered major improvements in durability, chemical resistance and resistance to surface staining (particularly from water spots), as well as retaining the warm gloss finish and superb hydrophobic function.
 All of the above combined with the introduction of a good degree of scratch resistance means EXOv3 represents a major leap forward in Last Surface Protection (LSP) technology.

BETTER: 5 Year Guarentee

More Info

C1 has been independently proven in the world’s most respected weathering facility. As you can see in the YouTube video below, it offers the best gloss retention out of all products tested.  Over a simulated run of 3 years in Arizona sunlight, a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss as 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 fewer swirl marks than those coated with waxes or left uncoated.
Topped with two coats of GTechniq EXOv3 for additional gloss and unmatched hydrophobic qualities, and maintaining the appearance of your car for years to come becomes a breeze.

ULTIMATE PROTECTION: 7 Year Guarantee 

More Info

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 and other environmental and industrial contaminants are easy to remove.
     Topped off with two coats of GTechniq EXO, and the result is an amazing level of gloss and protection that is unmatched in the industry.

More Info

Based on similar technology as the GTechniq Paint coatings, C5 provides the best protection for wheels, whether standard or alloys.
Because of C5’s unique, exceptionally fine surface rheology and chemical bonding mechanism, its performance is outstanding.  The former property gives the coating its excellent stain and contaminant resistance, and the chemical bond formed between the wheel surface and C5 makes the coating durable.

With a longevity of about 20,000 miles, C5 Wheel armor makes keeping the brake dust and road grime that can effect the beauty of your rims over time significantly easier with the use of harsh wheel acids.

Unlike regular rain repellent coatings that adhere to the surface of the glass using relatively weak physical bonds, G1 uses a chemical bond which gives G1 unrivaled durability.

     Of course safety is an issue when driving as well. With a longevity of about 20,000 miles, G1 Clearvision Smart Glass improves visibility wet weather driving helping to improve safety and eye strain. Keeping your glass clean and clear, G1 also makes ice, bugs, tree sap etc. much easier to remove

      G1’s excellent durability and exceptionally low smear characteristics make it not only ideal for car windshields, but for all the glass on your car.

Interior Coating and Anti-Microbial Protection

More Info

All interior protection has now been enhanced with added BioCote® antimicrobial technology meaning treated surfaces will kill 99.9% of bacteria, viruses, mold and mildew. 

C6 Matte Dash:  Specifically designed to protect dashboard and door card materials including leather, vinyl, plastics and rubberized finishes.

It adds abrasion resistance, dirt, water, static and UV repellency to treated surfaces.  It will not affect the gloss of your car’s trim and leaves a natural feel.

L1 Leather Guard: Forms a durable abrasion resistant matte finish which offers the best ever protection against abrasion damage, UV rays, dye transfer and other discoloration.

Friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas.  The anti stain function is most relevant for light colored leathers which are typically stained by dark colored fabrics such as blue jeans.

I1 Smart Fabric: Protects all kinds of fabrics from water and oil based stains.  It is breathable and extremely durable and will not effect the feel of the fabric. I1 Smart Fabric makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean.  The nano particles of I1 coat each fabric fiber individually, leaving the texture unaffected, allowing the material to breathe. This means stale air will still be able to escape, while repelling water and and oil-based liquids.

      Being alcohol based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving an I1 treated surface much better durability and overall performance.  Typically an I1 treated surface will last 5 times longer than conventional water repellent coatings, with the lifespan of the product on soft tops for as long as 3 years.
