Gtechniq Gtechniq was founded by quantum physicist Drew Gill in 2001, out of a total dissatisfaction with the performance of paint protection products at the time. Everything from waxes, to new-fangled polymers and PTFE based miracle treatments, nothing on the market offered any meaningful durability, either in looks, or protection. Worse still, he found that most of the products actually performed poorer than the paints they were supposed to protect. From this discontent came a simple idea, ‘To engineer the world’s most beautiful, perfectly finished, smartest and most intelligent surfaces. Surfaces that do much more than simply look great when new.’

Never saw that before, bud. The gtech folk will prob be back to work in the morning, so hopefully they'll explain the rationale then. I'm interested to see this one too.

Oh
Tbh I've never seen that it shouldn't be used on windscreens
I have cleaned windscreens with it before
Never had any issues.

Not sure if it's one of those things companies do to make them not liable for any issues

It’s just new windscreens will try and find the message but at what point can you use it

UPDATE Found it.....Last sentence from CYC website on the product

GTECHNIQ - G4 GLASS NANO POLISH

Gtechniq G4 utlises consistent nano sized abrasives and a citric acid cleaning agent to provide fast and agressive glass and ceramic cleaning to remove contaminants that glass cleaners fail to remove.

What's special about Gtechniq G4 Glass Nano Polish?

Gtechniq C4does exactly what it says on the tin. It remove all contaminants from glass or ceramic surfaces which are not removed during normal cleaning process without any damage to the substrate. G4 is easy to use and is exceptionally fast. We recommend using G4 prior to G1 or G3 application on any glass other than on new cars.

you can use it on new cars but it's not really necessary as there should not be a build up of contaminants

Thanks Rob
I think my car has been standing for some time so, just to confirm, it’s OK to use on ‘new car screens’
I want to use it in combination with G6; G1 and G2
Thanks
Dave
