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.’

edited to add W2, and differentiate between C2 diluted and neat. if i get time in the next couple of days i'll make a "how to apply/use" thread. where it'll be a similar layout to this, with instructions for application for each product.

it does smell, erm, interesting, to say the least! usually takes about a day or so for it to clear, driving with the windows down!

There's a few different versions of C1 floating about i've found some cure fast, within the hour maybe faster and some cure hours later but still has a grabby feel to it. Theres a smell difference between the 2 versions but i can't remember which one smells like what.
