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. Now available in the Ultimate Paint Protection Kit!
CarPro CQuartz UK is an innovative, ceramic coating that brings your vehicle into new aesthetic and protective heights.
By applying CQuartz UK 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 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 UK.
Additionally CQuartz UK 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, UK has the ability to both resist and absorb damage that commonly occurs to vehicle paintwork.
Make maintenance effortless, and keep your car looking great all year round. Enter the new generation of car care with CQuartz.
Note: CQuartz UK has a faster cure compared to the regular CQuartz. UK is normally easier to use and has a faster wipe off, but for those who prefer a slower cure, or are applying in really hot conditions, regular Cquartz may be a better option.
The UK kit comes will all applicators needed, and also includes a 100mL reload.
FEATURES: Immense gloss, ultimate "wet look". Durability of years, not months Increased resistance to water spotting Increased resistance to all contaminants and traffic film Resistance to light scratching
APPLICATION: For the best results, the surface must be prepared meticulously. All surfaces must be thoroughly washed, and decontaminated with iron removers/clay bars.
Any defects existing in the paintwork will be 'locked in' by the coating, therefore you will want to under go paint correction where necessary to ensure your car will look its best when protected.
Ensure the car has been meticulously decontaminated (even if the car is new) with iron removers, and a clay bar & lubricant. Perform machine polishing if necessary. If you don't own a machine or compounds, a great kit for beginners is the Karate Kid 9mm Kit. You can prime the surface with a finishing polish specific for CQuartz, which is the CarPro Essence. Wipe the car down with CarPro Eraser before applying the coating. Take out the applicator block and a suede MF towel from the kit and pour 5-6 drops of CQuartz UK Apply to surface area in criss cross pattern in small sections, reapplying CQuartz UK to your applicator as necessary Allow curing time of 15 seconds - 1 minute. When the weather is warmer, you are wiping off straight away. When it is colder, you can leave the product for up to 1 minute before wiping off. 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 process until entire vehicle exterior is coated. Wait 2 hours before layering with another application of CQuartz UK or Reload.

DLUX is a semi-permanent wheel & plastic coating coating from CarPro, which helps repel brake dust, and other contaminants from adhering to the surface - making wheel care and maintenance effortless.
CarPro DLUX is a specifically formulated, high temperature resistant coating for both Wheels and Plastics. Coated surfaces become extremely resistant to both heat, and contaminants - rejecting the bond of materials such as brake dust, iron fall out etc.
CarPro DLUX makes maintenance effortless. It can withstand the use of any wheel cleaner, and by rejecting contaminants from adhering to the surface - wheel cleaning can be as simple as just hosing off the dirt/grime on your wheels!
CarPro DLUX also has application in protecting plastic and rubber trim, with a unique darkening effect and two year durability it is perfect for mitigating the need for plastic and trim restoration further down the line and makes these areas simple to clean and maintain.
DLUX may also be used on headlights and taillights to protect them from sand blasting and yellowing. It can also be placed on exhausts/tips to help protect them.
Repels contaminants from adhering to coated surfaces
Makes maintenance effortless
Protects surfaces from degradation over time
For best results, you need to ensure that the wheel has been completely decontaminated through the use of iron removers, and a clay bar & lubricant. It may be a good idea to try and remove the wheels, cleaning and coating the whole barrel instead of just the faces to ensure optimal results. The wheel must then be prepped with CarPro Eraser before coating.
Wrap the provided suede towel around the applicator block and pour 5-6 drops of DLUX onto it.
Apply the product in even layers in a criss cross pattern to surface to be coated (plastic trim, headlight or alloy wheel) ensuring you use more DLUX as required to cover surface area.
Let the product cure for 10min to 1min at 10 degrees and 30 degrees respectively and wipe off residue using the provided suede MF. or another microfiber cloth
Full Cure Notes:
To reach maximum performance coated surface must not see rain for 24 hours after application
If coated surface comes into contact with water during the first 24 hours it must be dried immediately
Do not drive the car for at least 6 hours after application
After 6 hours CarPro Reload can be applied to help protect the coating as it hardens and cures
If car can be parked in direct sunlight after application this will aid in curing the coating and reaching maximum performance sooner
CarPro Eraser - Oil & Residue Remover 500ml
CarPro Eraser is the perfect prep spray for any wax, coating or sealant. It removes all oils from the paintwork, readying the surface for optimal results.
CarPro Eraser was initially developed as a pre-cleaner to remove all the oils from the paintwork to prepare the surface for Cquartz coatings. Regular IPA's have been known to have a high evaporation rate, which only lifts oils to the surface without efficiently remover them.
CarPro Eraser not only lifts oils and other impurities to the surface, but safely removes & dissolves them from the paintwork. Eraser also contains a blend of lubricants to avoid marring on soft paints. It also leaves a static free dust repellent on the surface.
Eraser is the perfect prep spray for any surface for general cleaning, or to ensure your wax, coating or sealant works optimally.
FEATURES: Use as final wipe down before applying waxes, coatings or sealants Safe to use on all exterior surfaces Can be used to clean glass surfaces

APPLICATION: Apply 25-30ml of Reset into a bucket with 10-15 litres of clean water. We recommend to use a two bucket washing method with Grit Guards. Pre-rinse the vehicle with a strong stream of water to dislodge and remove and dirt and debris from the surface. Try to wash the vehicle out of direct sunlight. If this can not be avoided, try to keep the panels as cool as possible, using water to bring down the temperature before washing, washing and rinsing one panel or area at a time. Do not allow the product to dry on the surface. Using a suitable washing mitt such as our Ultra Plush Wash Mitt, begin to wash the vehicle from the top down, rinsing the mitt frequently in clean water or rinse bucket. If necessary, use CarPro Spotless to remove hard water spots, and apply either Reload or Hydro2 to top-up the vehicle’s protection.
