3S: The Science of Smart Surfaces

Is anyone thinking how to make exteriors look better, last longer, yet require less effort to maintain? About lowering their impact on the environment, on our time and resources? And shouldn't everyday surfaces be doing even more for us anyway? At GTECHNIQ, this is what we do It's what we spend our days thinking about. And every minute working on. ....more

  C1 Crystal Lacquer

What's special about Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer?

C1 Crystal Lacquer C1 has been independently proven in the world's most respected weathering facility:

Where it proved to offer the best gloss retention of any other product tested.  Over a simulated run of 3 years Arizona sunlight a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss than its next best competitor and 1/3rd 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:



Extreme Durability:

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 as you can imagine 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.

Scratch Resistance:

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.  We have run tests 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.

Water and dirt repellency:

C1 is a biomimetic coating.  It mimics the repellency of plants that repel water and dirt in order to keep their leaves clean.  The most commonly cited example in nature is the leaf of the lotus plant which if you examine under an electron microscope looks like the picture to the right.  C1 works in a similar way as shown below:
