    Optimum Gloss Coat vs Cquartz Uk 3.0

    I`ve been using OPC for the past few years. How does Cquartz Uk 3.0 differ? Are they the same type of protection? How does durability compare? Ease of application?

    Ease of application goes to Gloss Coat. Durability and overall performance goes to CQUK 3.0. CQUK 3.0 is much easier to apply than the previous formula.

    They are both coatings but each company has different technology.

    Guz, how does 3.0 compare to the "classic"? The one i recently put on my hood, I bought like 2 years ago. Someone at CarPro mentioned on my IG, that it`s probably several years old.

    My guess, if it doesn`t perform, that would be the reason. Dunno.

    Gloss Coat and CQuartz both went on easily enough. If anything, LOL, BOTH of those I bought around the same time! oh, that`s funny.

    Are you asking about the application process, overall performance or both?

    They are about the same. Didn`t find either one too difficult to use.

    I actually when I think about it am very disappointed with opti on the prosumer level they should have a stronger offering to compete with UK. Maybe we should boycott until they give us something closer to there prolevel stuff plus it so expensive 10 ml gloss coat vs 30 ml UK. C’mon opti

    Might be just me but I`ve found the original UK version easier to use since it flashes a bit quicker. 3.0 to me takes longer to flash and can be a little bit smeary when wiping off, and a little bit more grabby also.
