Gtechniq products are “all about the surface”, particularly on cars and boats. Their goal is to engineer the world’s best surface care products. Products based on real science, innovative materials and total ease of use, delivering maximum long term visual impact. Products that protect not only against the elements, but the ravages of time, the impact of the daily grind.

That’s why all Gtechniq products have 3S or Smart Surface Science built in.

By harnessing the performance of nano scale composite materials and tested to extremes, 3S is your guarantee that Gtechniq polishes, cleaners and deep gloss coatings work harder, smarter and more easily than anything else you’ve tried…

Why use Gtechniq EXO?

exoEXO 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 with applications typically lasting as much as 18 months on daily driven cars in Northern Europe and North America.

C1+ Crystal Lacquer

c1 whiteThe ultimate paint or grp coating. C1+ Crystal Lacquer chemically bonds to become the new surface layer of your car/boat/ plane giving unrivalled UV resistance, dirt repellency, easy clean and swirl resistance. Lasts up to 10 times longer than dealer applied products.

Extreme Durability: Unlike regular polymer sealants, C1+ actually becomes the functional surface of your car’s paintwork. It does this by swapping part of its molecular structure with the surface molecules of your car’s paintwork. This is a true chemical or covalent bond and as you can imagine this is a much strong bond than a physical bond which is how regular polymers and waxes adhere to your car’s paintwork. In tests C1+ outlasted dealer applied sealants by at least 10 times.

Scratch Resistance: C1+ forms a sub micron cyrstalline film which is extremely hard. This characteristic makes c1+ extremely effective at preventing minor scratching from poor wash technique on relatively soft automotive paint. We have run tests comparing c1+ coated panels with uncoated and against panels coated with various high end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants. On average C1+ coated panels exhibited 50% less marring.

Water and dirt repellency: C1+ is a biomimetic coating. It mimics the repellency of plants that repel water and dirt in order to keep their leaves clean.

C2 Liquid Crystal


c2

Based on pure monomolecular silicium (SI14), C2 is a non-yellowing, high gloss, dirt repelling coating that cross-links with all surfaces of your car including bodywork, glass and trim providing long lasting (as much as 8 months from a single application) and exceptionally easy non smearing application.

G1 ClearVision Smart Glass

G1Lasts for up to two years / 30,000 miles making wet weather driving both safer and less tiring. Also keeps windshields cleaner for longer and makes bugs and ice easy to clean off. No smears and wiper blade proof.

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 unrivalled durability. G1’s excellent durability and exceptionally low smear characteristics make it ideal for car windscreens. Please note that with glass coatings there is a trade off between durability and functionality. Whilst G1 is recommended for car windscreens for surfaces such as shower screens or marine glass where maximum repellency is required it is better to use G3 ClearVision Smart Glass (Max Repellency).

C5 Wheel Armour

C5 wheel armour boxIndependently proven to outlast other rim coatings, C5 uses a unique chemical bond to become the functional surface of your rims making them dirt and brake dust repellent as well as being much easier to clean. A single application lasts up to one year.

Based on similar technology as our C1+ and C4 coatings, C5 is able to give you greater performance due to its unique and exceptionally fine surface rheology and chemical bonding mechanism. The former property gives the coating its excellent stain and contaminant resistance whilst the latter its durability

C4 Permanent Trim Restorer

C4 Trim White box3S nano composite coating. Restores trim to “as new” condition without altering gloss level. Strong UV absorption filter and chemical bond ensures maximum durability with a single application typically maintaining a flawless finish for up to two years.

C4 utilises a covalent or chemical bond to actually become an extension of the plastic molecule it’s protecting. Not to be confused with much weaker electrostatic bonds used by, amongst others, ptfe based polymers C4 actually swaps part of its molecular structure with the surface molecules of your car’s trim.

What this means is that you now have a protective coating of unparalleled durability. Unlike many trim products on the market C4 is an exceptionally thin (circa 30nm) optically clear film which means that it does not add an unattractive gloss film to the surface instead it restores all but the most faded trim to an as new condition. You can expect approximately 2 years from a single application.

I1 Smart Fabric

liWine, coffee etc. simply rolls off the surface and can be wiped away with a damp cloth with zero staining. I1 coats each fibre individually which means the texture of the fabric remains unaffected and allowing fabric to “breathe”. Works well on convertible roofs with great durability

Unlike regular coatings the nano particles of I1 actually coat the individual fibres of the fabric thereby leaving the “breathability” and feel of the fabric unaffected. The former means that stale air can still escape but at the same time repelling any water or oil based liquids. Being solvent 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 outlast conventional water repellent coatings by a factor of approximately x5 with durability on soft-tops for example, lasting as much as three years.

L1 Leather Guard

l1 leather guardA correctly maintained coating of L1 will greatly reduce instances of wear through on prone areas of leather or vinyl seats such as piping and leading edges. It also makes any die transfer much easier to remove

GTECHNIQ L1 Leather Guard offers the best of its type protection against friction and staining. The friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas. The anti stain function is particularly worthwhile on light coloured leathers that are typically stained by dark coloured fabrics such as indigo jeans.

Many leather products market themselves on how they feed leather. In fact your car’s leather seats are first coated with a very fine emulsion to give them the desired colour and then a clear coat. So for best longevity you should be keeping that coating as well protected as possible which is exactly what L1 does. These same companies would also have you believe you should feed your car’s acrylic or polyester urethane paint finish with olive, cantaloupe, sunflower and coconut oils…!
