    The new Cquartz UK?

    From Carpro UK site


    CarPro CQuartz UK Edition 3.0 Kit (50ml)

    The exclusive new`70%`SiO2 with`99.9% purity`formula made for hot or cold temp environment applications.`CQUK 3.0`is based on the same technology as the original Cquartz UK with some interesting tweaks. Improving upon the products chemical and stain resistance as well as increasing the hydrophobic effect. The pure percentage ensures the most transparent glass coat film over the surface. This guarantees a long lasting coating with extreme strength resistance and water-repellency. Once the liquid meets the open air it cures and forms a ceramic quartz hard coating on the surface with extreme hydrophobicity.`

    The most common question we get asked is "What`s the difference between CQuartz UK edition and CQuartz Classic with ti02?"`
    It`s simple, with CQUK we have a higher concentration of si02 quartz which gives our hardest most chemical resistant layer of protection.` With CQuartz Classic we replaced some of that si02 with ti02 which gives a slicker, more glossy finish but reduces the hardness of the final coat.`
    So the main choice is what is most important, all our protection of CQUK or a combination of protection and extreme gloss of CQ Classic.
    Why not have the best of both worlds and use CQUK topped with CQ Gliss top coat, a super hard base with a super slick, extremely glossy stain resistant top coat!``

    Why SiO2?

    SiO2 is one of the hardest material in the world.

    It creates a very clear but still long lasting hard coating on automotive surfaces.

    Kit Includes:

    (1) 50ml bottle of CQuartz UK Edition(1) Foam Applicator Block(5) 4" Suede Applicators(1) 16" Suede Final Buff Towel

    Compare to the best professional coatings available but easy to use for the amateur detailerCQuartz UK is the easiest to apply coating on the market. No matter how cold, hot, or humid the application is simple.CQUK has`70%`SiO2 with`99.9% purityAverage thickness of Cquartz UK layer is between 1 m ~2.5 m.Minor swirl filling abilitiesGreat Value with Reload IncludedCquartz UK offers an extremely durable hard glass coat which can protect for more than 2 years against minor scratches, acid rain, bird droppings, corrosive traffic film, tar and harmful UV rays.As well as protecting it also offers a deep, rich gloss with self cleaning properties, making future washing of your vehicle, faster and easier. CQ UK can prevent 50% of light wash marring.Ultra hard CQuartz UK contains ceramic nano particles found within glass, the result is a highly reflective, transparent layer.Once applied, Cquartz forms a strong chemical bond, cross linking during the curing process. This offers excellent durability, with a high level of gloss & reflectivity.Cquartz UK active ingredients form a precise and uniformed level layer, giving strong water and oil repellence. Thus preventing stains on the paints surface.Resists extremely high temperatures. Feel free to coat engine components, etc that correspond to the materials shown.Can also be layered: Allow 1 hour minimum wait time after buffing to allow cure before applying another coat.

    Surfaces you can protect with CQuartz:

    PaintWheelsChromeMetalsHeadlightsAnd more


    Recommended working temperatures: 3c to 40c
    Durability: 18-24 months
    Water contact angle: 110 degrees
    Light marring filling propertiesThick layer: 1~2 Micron each

    CarPro UK Preparation Tips:

    If contamination exists it is recommended that you IronX and clay your vehicle before polishing.To gain the most from Cquartz it is recommended that your vehicle have all painted surfaces clean and polished to a high standard.There should not be any wax, sealant, polishing oils, or oil of any kind left on the paint before application. That would hamper the penetration of Cquartz and seriously compromise durability.


    After polishing your vehicle use CarPro Eraser to wipe down the surface to ensure no oils are left from polishingWrap a mf Suede (included) around the applicator block (also included)Shake CQuartz UK well and apply to the applicator 3-4 drops
    Starting at the middle of the panel first wipe left and right spreading product across panel and the criss cross motion overlapping entire section or panel until all areas have completely flashed and no longer appear wet with coating.
    Using your 16" MF suede towel (included) thoroughly and completely wipe the panel or section to create a flat even finish.`
    Move to next panel and repeatTo layer Cquartz UK, allow 1 hour between coats and`we recommend applying CarPro Gliss after 4 hours after final layer of CQuartz UK edition.Small 4"x4" suedes should be used on no more than 2 panels and`submerged in water, excess squeezed out, before being bagged and disposed of.Large 16"x16" suedes should be used on no more than 3 panels and submerged in water, excess squeezed out, before being bagged and disposed of

    More 16"x16" suedes can be purchasedhere`we recommend a minimum of 5 additional purchased for 2 layers of Cquartz on one car.
    If you do not have extra suede buffing towels, use a soft microfibre to remove the excess from the coating, before a final buff just to remove any missed high spots with the suede towel.

    CarPro UK After Tips:

    Park vehicle in direct sun any time after application is complete.Keep surface dry for at least one hour after applicationWipe any water off the surface during the first 24 hours after applicationAvoid washing with any soaps for the first 7 days


    Never allow highly alkaline (ph12+) chemicals such as non-diluted all purpose cleaners to sit or dwell on the surface for extended periods. This may damage the coating.Do not apply in direct sun or on hot surfaceDo not re-use Suede applicators or microfibres after 1 vehicle as they will crystalize and could scratch paint if re-usedWear hand protection (disposable gloves)We always recommend using respiratory protection with coatings due to the silica(si02) content.

    Interesting that APCs are not supposed to sit on the surface some people like to presoak with it. Thought it would be more chemical resistant than that.

    Im sure it will be a winner if its 50 bucks like before for 30 ml. Good coating for the price point.

    Re: The new Cquartz UK?

    Wow they really have done a write up that is thorough this time. Wonder if you are going to keep at applying in criss cross patern till it flashes? Or apply it in one criss cross patern and wait for the flashes? Have it been the later option that has been recommended before to apply it?

    Good decision.

    It is pretty straight forward to apply. Much easier than the previous version. 3.0 flashes quicker and feels less tacky than the original formula. Performance side by side is very similar.
