Crystal Serum

Why use Gtechniq Crystal Serum?

Like no other product, Crystal Serum provides paint protection with previously unachievable levels of gloss, durability, scratch and chemical resistance.

Its composite structure offers the ultimate in ceramic protection plus the same slick finish and candy like gloss as the very best carnauba waxes.

Benefits

1 - The hard 9h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. Compared to standard ceramic coatings, Crystal Serum forms a relatively thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss.

2 - Resistant to chemicals from ph2 to ph13, so when you so clean your car, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easyto remove and will not harm your car’s clear coat.

3 - Crystal Serum is unaffected by extreme heat changes, even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.

C1 Crystal Lacquer

C1 Crystal Lacquer is a nano-active quartz coating that chemically bonds to the vehicle’s paintwork to become the new surface layer offering unrivalled gloss, UV resistance, and swirl resistance. This film stands between the elements and the vehicle’s finish, providing exceptional protection and gloss retention.

Benefits
  • Lasts up to 10 times longer than dealer-applied paint sealants
  • Provides extreme gloss retention and long lasting scratch resistance
  • Offers superior protection from paint damaging UV rays in summer months
  • EXOv2 Ultra Durable Hybrid Coating

    EXOv2 UDHC is a cutting edge coating offering sensational dirt repellency, gloss, and durability. EXOv2 is a hybrid of a chemically bonding hard inorganic base coat and a slick wet looking and highly dirt and water repellent organic top coat.

    Benefits
  • Remarkable 115 degree contact angles create water sheeting action and prevent water spotting on pitched panel surfaces
  • EXOv2 remains ultra-hydrophobic, glossy, and slick to the touch after more than a year of regular washing and sun exposure
  • EXOv2 makes vehicle cleaning significantly easier
  • C5 Wheel Armour

    Independently proven to outlast other rim coatings, C5 uses a unique chemical bond to become the functional surface of your rims resulting in easier maintenance as wheels will repel dirt and brake dust. A single application lasts

    Benefits
  • A single application lasts up to one year
  • Resistant to temperatures up to 570F
  • Provides excellent stain & contaminant resistance properties
  • G1 ClearVision Smart Glass

    G1 ClearVision Smart Glass is a chemically bonding glass nano-coat that offers unparalleled durability and function. On car windshields, a well applied G1 coat will typically offer up to 30,000 miles of water, dirt, ice, and contaminant repellency, benefitting the driver with significantly improved visibility, less time spent removing ice, and an easy to clean surface.

    Benefits
  • Makes wet weather driving easier, safer, and less tiring
  • Repels dirt, bugs, and tar
  • Anti-icing function
  • L1 Leather Guard
    L1 Leather Guard offers the best of its type protection against friction and staining. The friction protection is particularly important on seat bolsters, seat piping and any other high wear areas. The anti stain function is particularly worthwhile on light coloured leathers that are typically stained by dark colored fabrics such as indigo jeans.
    I1 Smart Fabric

    I1 Smart Fabric protects the interior from just about anything life throws at it including stain producers such as coffee, wine, soda, blood, and other family favorites. Unlike other commercial solutions, the nano particles of I1 coat the individual fibers of the fabric, leaving the “breathability” and feel of the fabric unaffected. Stale air is allowed to escape from the fabric keeping it fresh; however at the same time water or oil-based liquids are instantly repelled from the surface. Recommended use on convertible tops, textile seats and carpet mats, and outdoor furtniture, shoes, and clothing.

    Benefits
  • Outlasts conventional water repellent coatings by a factor of 5
  • Superior durability on soft-tops, fabric and textile seats, carpets, etc.

    Who Is Ceramuc Pro?

    Ceramic Pro is a manufacturer of protective coatings for all surfaces originally devoted to industrial coating production specializing in coatings for construction as well as industrial and household use.

    In 2010 Ceramic Pro product line has been expanded with a series of protective coatings suited for Paint, Glass, Alloy, Fabric, Leather, Plastic and Rubber surfaces in Automotive, Aviation and Marine industries.

    Ceramic Pro coatings are based on a unique ceramic molecular compound formula (nanoceramics). New formulas are always under testing to make them the most advanced protective coatings on the market.

    Why choose Ceramic Pro?

    Advanced Nanoceramic Protective Coatings

    The Ceramic Pro line of products is formulated by a qualified chemist with a high level of experience in the industrial protective coating field, Ceramic Pro has been specifically formulated for Automotive substrates and is always undergoing extensive testing for new and improved versions to take the coating industry to new levels.

    Ceramic Pro 9H permanent paint protection coating is an «Above 9H» rated coating with superior Chemical Resistance, Super-Hydrophobic Effect, UV Resistance, Scratch Resistance, Temperature Resistance and Corrosion Resistance.

    How is this possible?

    Ceramic Pro once cured, is measured to have hardness above 9H. Normal clear coat has hardness between 2H and 4H. The glass shield prevents minor scratches to your clearcoat and acts as a sacrificial layer. This preserves the original factory paint.

    Any surface scratches that happen in the coating are easily removed with light polishing which will not weaken the integrity of the original clear coat. With Ceramic Pro your paint won’t fade or age due to the UV protection in the glass coating.

    Glossy, slick and self-cleaning This nano technology allows the Ceramic nanoparticles to fill the smallest pores in the paint which makes the Ceramic Pro glass shield shiny, smooth and extremely slick or hydrophobic. Ceramic Pro dramatically lowers the surface tension preventing environmental contaminants such as: bird droppings, bugs, dirt, tar and graffiti paint from bonding to the surface. Water easily removes dirt from the surface by encapsulating it while rolling off the surface. This is called the self-cleaning effect.

    Permanent protection Ceramic Pro 9H is a one-time application if maintained correctly. Once the Ceramic Pro glass shield has cured it can only be removed through abrasion like wet sanding. This puts Ceramic Pro in a category by itself, compared to sealants or waxes that degrade quickly.

    Why should I use Ceramic Pro on my vehicle?

    Permanent protection
    Ceramic Pro is not a paint protection, wax or sealant that will wash away or break down over time. It is a nano-ceramic coating that forms a permanent adhesion to the paint and can only be removed through abrasion. No chemical can dissolve the coating.
    Hardness above 9H
    When the coat hardens it creates a surface that can withstand stone chips and all sorts of light scratches. The glass coat is above 9H on the Mohs scale. This scale is used in the coating industry to determine a mineral`s hardness, 9H is the highest on the scale. The coat will stay hard for a lifetime if maintained correctly.
    Chemical Resistance

    The coating has a 100% resistance against the damaging containments and harsh chemicals that a car can be exposed to. Since chemicals does not do anything to the coating, the car will stay protected.

    Oxidation and Corrosion Resistant
    Bare metal will oxidize and painted surfaces will not. Ceramic Pro´s protective coat protects the paint and the metal from getting in contact with water and oxygen.
    Temperature resistance
    The coat will not be effected under 1400 Fahrenheit.
    UV protection
    Silkoxid which is used in sun block is also used in Ceramic Pro’s products. The UV protecting keeps the paint, rubber and plastic from aging.
    Super Gloss

    The shine from this product is not comparable to any other product on the market. It has to be seen in real life.

    Super Hydrophobic
    When you talk about surfaces being hydrophobic you often talk about the water contact angle of the surface. The higher angle the less dirt or liquid will attach to the surface. A drive in the rain will make the car look newly washed. This hydrophobic effect will last a lifetime if maintained correctly.

    Only authorized installers can apply Opti Coat Pro paint protection to your vehicle, and First Impression Premier Auto Detail is the only highly trained and experienced Authorized Installer in the west coast of Florida.

    Opti-Coat is a hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and protection from chemical etching due to environmental impacts.

    The Opti-Coat pre-polymer cross links, and forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to, similar to a single component isocyanate that forms a clear coat finish.

    Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch & mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints and can also be used to protect metal and hard plastic surfaces.

    What Are The Benefits of Applying Opti-Coat Pro?

    Hydrophobic
    One of the most important features in keeping your vehicle clean is the ability of the protective layer to release water. Opti-Coat features a low sliding angle which allows water drops to release easily causing an extreme lotus affect.
    Gloss
    Opti-Coat has developed a reputation among professionals as the richest, deepest, highest gloss coating available. It is important to note that proper depth and gloss is achieved with proper correction and polishing by an experience detailer with a passion for what they do. However after they have invested countless hours in their craft, it is only fitting to both protect their work long term and add that extra rich depth of the Opti-Coat coating available.
    Protection From Bugs

    They come in all shapes and sizes. Many are highly acidic and can wreak havoc on your paint! They impact the front of your vehicle at high speed and as their body’s explode the acidic contents spills out onto your paint. Within minutes it can eat through a layer of traditional wax before it dries and bonds hard to the surface in the heat of the sun. If the bug is highly acidic it will begin the process of etching into your clearcoat in a matter of hours. Each time it is exposed to moisture more acids are released and eventually you have permanent damage to your paint.

    With 3µm of Opti-Coat between the bugs and your paint they can no longer cause permanent damage to your paint. To start with the coating is resistant to acids and its rare any mark will be left on the coating with reasonable washing schedules. In the rare case a bug does leave something behind you can be rest assured your paint is still safe beneath the coating.

    Easier Maintenance
    As we touched on previously: dust, dirt, and contaminants do not bond to your Opti-Coat barrier in the way they do to paint with only a coat of wax or sealant applied. Any dirt or dust that does attach to the coating is MUCH more easily removed upon the next wash without having to scrub or clay the vehicle. Opti-Coat offers dirt and water shedding abilities beyond that of any other product available. With the self-cleaning affect provided by Opti-Coat, most dirt slides right off during a wash.
    Fine Swirl Resistance

    Waxes and sealants obviously offer no swirl resistance. When you wash, dry, or touch your paint at any time you have the potential to scratch the surface. The scratches we are talking about here are very fine and referred to as “swirls” but as they build up the level of gloss you see as reflections and depth to your paint withers. These swirls refract light away from your eyes which is the cause of a dulled appearance to your paint.

    Opti-Coat has been proven to resist these fine swirls when properly maintained and cared for. It should be noted that no coating is swirl proof and it is important to use only high quality wash mitts and drying towels or a blower.

    We highly recommend allowing your Authorized Opti-Coat Installer to either maintain your vehicle or train you in proper wash techniques and provide access for purchase of the incredibly soft and plush CarPro Merino Wool Wash Mitt.

    Protection From Bird Droppings
    The most dangerous enemy your paint will likely see in its life is bird droppings. They can vary in level of toxicity but it is well known by professionals that a bird dropping can dissolve wax on contact, eat deep into paint, and leave an etching within minutes. With Opti-Coat you have a barrier which resists bird droppings and allows you time to discover and remove them so they cannot cause permanent damage to your paint.
    Dust and Dirt Resistance

    Anybody that has just waxed their car will tell you – within a couple hours they can see the dust building up on it and after a drive that dust is still there. It doesn’t blow off and it does accumulate on the carnauba wax layer. Polymer sealants are a little better and stay cleaner than waxes however they too allow dirt and dust to stick to them. Compared to wax, dust and dirt retention is lowered up to 90% with Opti-Coat. Of course some will gather and collect over time but you will enjoy the beauty of your vehicle between washes when protected by Opti-Coat where as with other products the paint will look dirty faster.

    Protection from rail, brake dust, and environmental contaminants:

    In the air around us and on the highways, all sorts of contaminants attack your paint. Iron particles coming off the brakes of other vehicles can lodge into your paint and allow moisture to penetrate around them. Over time the oxidation process from moisture and sun break down around these iron particles and eat microscopic holes into your paint. Opti-Coat puts an end to this with a thick barrier that does not allow these contaminants to reach the paint surface and are removed much more easily.

    7 Year Warranty
