Gyeon Quartz Multi-layer Ceramic Coatings
Gyeon Quartz Q² DuraFlex is a state of the art ceramic coating systems that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. Put very simply, it is the most advanced paint protection system in the world today, and is backed by a five year warranty provided by Gyeon and supported by the certified Gyeon detailer who applies it (in this case us).
Why is Gyeon Quartz Q² DuraFlex so good?
Answers to this question lie in its unique two-stage formula, which lays down a thick hybrid film of organic-silica that increases in molecular weight as it cures, forming an amorphous organic-silica nano-composite. None of the systems that dealerships offer work in the same way; they lay down organic polymers that cross-link weakly with painted surfaces, forming a temporary sacrificial coating that is readily eroded by cleaning chemicals and natural solvents. In contrast, Gyeon Quartz Q² DuraFlex lays down a structurally denser layer of inorganic and organic components that cross-links very strongly with painted surfaces, forming a semi-permanent protective coating that is impervious to cleaning chemicals and natural solvents. Indeed, this coating is actually hard enough (and thick enough) to significantly improve the swirl resistance of treated finishes, with each application typically adding four grades of hardness to the finish on the Mohs scale.
In addition to the chemical and swirl-resistant properties outlined above, Gyeon Quartz Q² DuraFlex also provides excellent levels of protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for upwards of two years at a time, even on cars used as daily drivers. Furthermore, it also causes treated surfaces to become both water hating (hydrophobic) and oil-repellent (lipophobic), which gives rise to a strong self-cleaning effect. This means that your car will stay cleaner for longer in between washes, and will acquire fewer bonded contaminants (e.g. tar spots) over time. Moreover, it will also be less susceptible to acts of vandalism; the same coating technology has recently been adopted by many rail operators as it ensures that paint (e.g. graffiti) remains easy to remove, even if it has dried. Notwithstanding everything said so far, perhaps the single greatest benefit that Gyeon Quartz Q² Mohs Plus offers is the fact that it really will last for upwards of five years, even if you have your car decontaminated on a regular basis during that period (e.g. to remove tar spots). This would simply not be possible with any of the so-called long-life paint protection packages offered by dealerships, as they cannot survive being treated with spirit-based tar removers (whereas Gyeon Quartz Q² DuraFlex is unaffected by them). As we said at the beginning, DuraFlex is quite simply the most advanced paint protection system in the world today, and represents the pinnacle of car care technology at the present time. If you want the best possible protection for your bodywork, then this upgrade is for you.
