Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer
Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer has been independently proven, in the world's most respected weathering facility, to offer the best gloss retention of any other product tested. Over a simulated run of 3 years of Arizona sunlight, a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss than its next best competitor and third less gloss than the average score for all other products tested. But gloss retention is only part of the story. C1 offers the following additional benefits:
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 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.
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. Tests have been run 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.
