    Review - Gyeon Syncro Evo

    Nathan who is a Gyeon USA representative reached out to me and asked if I would be interesting in trying out the new coatings. I could not pass up on the offer so I thank Nathan for sending them out to me.

    For the reviews of CanCoat Evo and Pure Evo see the following threads.

    Review - Gyeon Pure Evo

    Review - Gyeon CanCoat Evo

    Next up is Gyeon Syncro Evo. Syncro is a two part coating consisting of MOHS Evo as the base layer and the top coat Skin Evo.

    Before I continue I am looking forward to seeing if the new formulations aid in the overall durability and longevity of Syncro. I had used the previous formula and the best part of it was Skin. Very hydrophobic and slick. The downside is that its performance would start to fall flat around the 6 month mark. This was consistent each time I applied it. The other downside was that MOHS was more hydrophilic and lacked in self cleaning.

    Background information on the Syncro Evo ceramic coating. I will break this down to each coating.

    MOHS Evo:


    • It is now a Flouro Modified Polysilozane. Gyeon uses fluorine in the manufacturing process. And no this is not a fluorine infused coating. It is used to increase durability and chemical resistance.
    • One layer. No more required 2 layers. The second layer is now optional and can be applied 1 hour after the first layer. No longer than 2 hours topped with another layer of MOHS or Skin.
    • Durability: 1 layer up to 36 months (3 years), 2 layers up to 48 months (4 years)
    • 12 hours to not get wet
    • pH tolerance 2-11
    • Flash time is seen as the sweating effect. Similar to Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light which is the competition that Gyeon is aiming for with this coating.
    • Slick and smooth. This coating is very slick.
    • User friendly
    • Outdoor Friendly. Meaning it can be applied outside but not in direct sun and avoid wet wet weather for the first 24 hours as it will affect the cure time (ie dew, rain). This will be a big hit for those that don’t have access to a garage as it applies to all of the Gyeon coatings. One thing mentioned in the included maintenance book, is to apply Gyeon Cure as a precaution if planning to leave it outside.


    Skin Evo:


    • Skin increases gloss and durability of the hydrophobic effect
    • Durability: I found two different things on this.
    • Up to 60 months (5 years) stated on the Gyeon Show
    • Up to 50 months (4 years, 2 months) stated on the Gyeon site
    • It is now silica based unlike the previous version which was silicone based
    • Increases chemical resistance


    Final Thoughts:

    I share most of my thoughts in the video but this coating is such a breeze to work with. Unlike Gyeon Pure Evo, MOHS Evo has a shorter flash time indicated by the sweating effect resembling Gtechniq Crystal Serum Light. MOHS will also be a section by section application with the shorter flash times compared to Pure Evo.

    I am going to put this disclaimer out now. If you prefer slickness then stop at MOHS Evo. It is one of the slickest coatings on the market. Nathan recommended two layers of MOHS but again one layer is perfectly fine. Keep in mind that in the Gyeon application video it is stated to not wait longer than two hours to top MOHS with either another layer of MOHS or Skin.

    Unlike Pure, MOHS does not give that eye popping candy gloss look as if the vehicle was dipped in glass. The best way I can describe it gives a more crisp appearance like natural clear coat.

    Skin Evo will take that very slick surface away and will leave a smooth sensation when applied over MOHS. But Skin is going to add that hint of candy gloss. Nothing eye popping like Pure Evo but still nice and crisp. The application is wipe on and wipe off per Gyeon’s application video.

    One of the biggest differences between Syncro Evo and Syncro is that Syncro Evo is now a two layer system. Syncro was a multi-layer system with a minimum of two layers of MOHS and one layer of Skin 4 hours later. This is a large time savings with the new Syncro Evo. 2 hours of coating applications rather than roughly 7 hours of coating application.

    So for those looking for a very slick coating then just get MOHS Evo. If looking for durability then get Syncro Evo with sacrificing that slick feeling for a more smooth feeling.

    Overall a very user friendly coating to use. Good job thus far for Gyeon when it comes to ease of use for the new Evo line up.

    How much difference are the hydrophobics between Pure vs Mohs vs Syncro?

    Here is another update. Used a different soap this time and there are no application issues. It was the Shine Supply Hot Shot that was masking things. This is two strikes against Shine Supply soaps from me.
