CarPro CQuartz is an innovative ceramic coating that brings your vehicle to new aesthetic and protective heights.
CQuartz adds a 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 cleaners.
Glass coating technologies have a unique low surface energy formula enabling it to fill and level paint ridges and gives coated surfaces a "self cleaning effect" also known as the lotus effect or hydrophobicity.
This means the coating rejects bonding of contamination and when water is introduced to the surface it carries the contamination off with it. This is 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. With additional thickness on top of the manufacturer's clear coat, CQuartz has the ability to both resist and absorb damage that commonly occurs to vehicle paintwork.
Make maintenance effortless and keep your car looking amazing all year. Enter the new generation of car care with CQuartz.
Note: CQuartz is a slower cure compared to its brother CQuartz UK. The coatings themselves are virtually identical, however their curing times differ as UK is a faster cure (and comes with Reload) while CQuartz is slower.
- 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
For 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 correct paint 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 2.0 8mm. You can prime the surface with a finishing polish specific for CQuartz, which is CarPro Essence.
Wipe the car down with CarPro Eraser before applying the coating.
Take out the applicator block and a suede microfibre towel from the kit and pour 5-6 drops of CQuartz.
Apply to the surface area in criss cross pattern in small sections, reapplying CQuartz to your applicator as necessary.
Allow curing time of between 5 - 10 minutes before wiping off. If it is hotter, the wipe off time will be closer to 5 minutes, and if it is colder it will be closer to 10.
Wipe off and level the residue with a cloth such as The Rag Company's Edgeless Pearl.
Once you have visibly removed all product residue from the surface, follow up with a fresh suede towel from the kit in the same pattern you applied the product to ensure it's completely level and even.
Repeat the process until entire vehicle exterior is coated. Wait 2 hours before layering with another application of CQuartz or Reload.
Note: The 10mL CQuartz Kit is only for touch ups and does not come with any applicators or blocks.
