The Gtechniq Crystal Lacquer + Liquid Crystal Kit combines two powerful paint protectants to give your vehicle unbeatable resistance to UV rays, water, dirt, and scratches! Nano technology has yielded superior products that will outlast a typical wax or paint sealant by months. Use the Gtechniq Crystal Lacquer + Liquid Crystal Kit on every hard surface of your vehicle for clear protection and deep gloss.
C1 coated panels have been tested against uncoated panels, as well as high-end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants. On average, panels coated with Gtechniq C1, exhibited 50 percent less swirl marks than those coated with waxes or left uncoated.
C2 Liquid Crystal is the revolutionary way to make your car, boat, plane or RV shine and stay clean longer, thanks to Gtechniq’s unique 3S Smart Surface Science. With C2 Liquid Crystal you get instant, effective protection from UV and dirt without the expense of dealer applied systems. Fast and easy to use, C2 is based on the same smart surface technology as its big brother, C1 Crystal Lacquer which is the performance coating of choice amongst industry professionals and OEMs.
30 ml. C1 Crystal Lacquer
Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer is a nano-active coating that cures to the paint finish to become the functional surface layer of the paint. This non-porous film stands between the elements and your vehicle's finish, providing exceptional protection and gloss. Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer lasts up to 10 times longer than dealer-applied paint sealants and offers extreme gloss retention, scratch resistance, water and dirt repellency, UV protection, and self-cleaning action.
100 ml. C2v3 Liquid Crystal
GTechniq C2v3 Liquid Crystal is a gloss-intensive spray-on, wipe-off dirt repellent coating that blankets your vehicle in a highly reflective, glass-like finish. GTechniq C2v3 Liquid Crystal is built around the same monomolecular (SI14) technology as C1 Crystal Lacquer. GTechniq C2v3 Liquid Crystal can be applied to all exterior surfaces to provide excellent UV protection and water-sheeting abilities. A single application of C2v3 Liquid Crystal lasts up to 8 months!
Storage and use
Make sure the surface you are working on is cool, dry and out of direct sunlight
When applying the product always wear gloves to prevent C1 coming into contact with your skin
Dab product onto the application pad
Replace the lid on the bottle and set aside - do not keep the bottle in your hand as this promotes premature curing
Change the application pad after 3 to 4 applications of areas no bigger than half a car bonnet. If you do not do this, you will feel the coating becoming sticky when applying, this makes it extremely difficult to buff
The coating forms an almost immediate reaction with the paint/fibreglass molecules it comes into contact with. Reaction time of C1 is temperature and humidity dependent – for normal room temperature at around 50 percent humidity, we recommend buffing between 30 and 60 seconds afterwards
You may need to buff the same area several times to remove residue. We recommend using two microfiber cloths at any one time. Please note that you are only removing excess product
Avoid buffing with too much force as this can spoil the surface you are protecting, and you may also drag the partially cured coating off the surface
Take care that the microfiber cloths you are using are rotated sufficiently and quickly so that C1 does not partially cure in the cloth, this will make buffing residue significantly more difficult
If you miss removing residue and it cures fully, you should re-polish this area, and reapply C1
As soon as you finish put the microfibers in water and wash and dry them as soon as possible, otherwise C1 will crystallise in the cloth
Use C1 Crystal Lacquer within 1 year of purchasing, for best results, once opened use within 3 months
Leave at least three hours after using C1 before applying any C2 Liquid Crystal
Spray onto surface and buff with a Gtechniq MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth
Apply C2 to one panel at a time
C2 can be used with any other car care products as a base or top layer. It can also be used as a drying aid by diluting between 1:2, spraying onto a wet surface and drying with a Gtechniq MF2 Zero Scratch Microfibre Drying Towel
Do not apply in direct sunlight allowing product to dry
Can be layered for increased gloss and protection
If residue is hard to remove, wipe with a damp MF1 cloth, and buff with a second dry MF1 cloth
C2 needs to be used within two years from the date purchased, once opened it has a shelf life of 1 year
