Experience an original... Experience the revolution
CQuartz TiO2 (aka CQuartz) is the latest adaptation of the original Quartz-based coating that put the advances of Nanotechnology in the hands of detailing enthusiasts, CarPro CQuartz remains at the cutting edge of automotive protection technology with constant advances and improvements throughout the years. CQuartz bonds to paint, glass, metal, and plastic at a molecular level, effectively becoming a functional element of the vehicle’s surface. This coating’s hard hydrophobic, glass-like finish helps to protect your vehicle from weathering, UV-damage, industrial and organic fallout, acids, alkalines, light wash-marring and abrasion for up to 2-years while making it easier to clean than ever before. If you find maintaining your vehicle’s beauty a challenge, it’s time to experience the CQuartz legend for yourself...

Reflective Hologram CQuartz stickers
*SiO2 (Quartz) & Tio2 (Titanium) Hybrid coating for extreme reflections, gloss, "self-cleaning", and resistance to oxidation)
*Extremely durable hard glossy coat, which can help, protect against acid rain, bird droppings, corrosive traffic film, tar and harmful UV rays for more than 2 years.
*Offers a deep, rich gloss with self-cleaning properties, making future washing of your vehicle, faster and easier. CQuartz can prevent 50% of light wash marring.
*CQuartz contains ceramic nano-particles found within glass alongside TiO2 nano-particles creating a highly reflective, transparent layer offering incredible durability
*Average thickness of each CQuartz layer is approximately 1µm ~ 2µm.
*Once applied, CQuartz forms a strong bond directly to the paint becoming one with the painted surface and offering a true sacrificial barrier to the environment.
*CQuartz active ingredients form a precise and uniformed level layer, giving strong water and oil repellency and resisting most stains on the paints surface.
*Resists extremely high temperatures. Feel free to coat engine components, etc. that correspond to the materials shown.
Recommended working temperatures: 50F to 100F
If environmental temperatures are below 60F consider CQuartz UK.
Apply in shade only and not on hot surfaces
After polishing your vehicle use CarPro Eraser to wipe down the surface to ensure no oils are left from polishing
Wrap a microfiber Suede (included) around the applicator block (also included)
Wrap Suede over the gray side of the foam applicator block.
Shake bottle well
Drag one or two lines of product down the applicator.
Wipe across surface in a crisscross pattern. Add more product as needed.
Wait between 1-5 minutes depending on temps, humidity, and paint and find the right window to wipe when you’re doing your first panel. Generally in summer temps 2-3 min. Too soon and it will still be oily. Too late and it becomes hard to remove.
Switch out the 4" Suedes every 2+/- panels
Additional coats may be applied with 45-60 minutes or wait until the following day if you are beyond 60 minutes. CarPro recommends 2 coats
Keep surface dry for at least one hour after application, but recommended 24 hours with no water
Wipe any water off the surface during the first 24 hours after application
Avoid washing with soap for the first 5 days
CarPro Reload may be applied one hour (in cold) or 40 minutes (in hot) after CQuartz is wiped off
Wash with Reset regularly
Treat with Iron X every 3-12 months
Treat with Reload or Hydrofoam as you wish
Do not apply in direct sun or on hot surface
Any towels that are used for application or wiping off the coating residue should be demoted
Wear hand protection (disposable gloves)
We always recommend using proper respiratory protection when using chemicals.
Q & A:
1.-What are the consequences of buffing the product off too soon?
You will remove some of the coating layer and affect durability.
2.-Approximately how many microns will (1) coating of CQuartz add to the paint?
Between 1 ~ 2 microns
3.-Can CQuartz be applied to single stage paints of any age?
This depends on the paint type. There are many different types of single stage paint. If it’s very old it may remove some of the paint. We tested on acrylic paint and it didn’t work so well. Remember this is not to replace clear coat. Clear coat has 20~30 microns minimum. On single stage paints always do a small test section, allow time to dry, buff off and verify results before duplicating the effort on the remainder of the vehicle.
4.-What temperatures will CQuartz withstand before failing?
For this I think you should see our flame retarding video on car paint. At approximately 1500 to 1800 deg. paint would peel from the vehicle. See the video on my site. It’s really impressive and shows how well CQuartz is bonded to paint.
5.-If only some of the bottle is used and the cap replaced tightly what would the remaining shelf life be?
Maybe 6 months. That’s why we do it in small bottles, not to store much
6.-Can CQuartz be clayed a year down the line if any contaminants stick to it?
Soft ultra light clay won't be a problem. Use CarPro Reset car wash regularly and Iron X every few months you will be surprised how needless clay becomes.
