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.’

G1 Help

I had G1 applied to my car about a year and a half ago and it's starting to get a bit tired. Can I just apply over the old stuff After using G4? My only concern is there's a few patches that almost look like someone has swiped a finger across the screen I'm guessing this may have happened during application and these areas are the first to have failed. My main concern is if I apply over this then it might still appear patchy.

Sounds like removing the current G1 entirely could be difficult without a DA. Gtechniq Works are based just up the road from me so I suppose I could pop in for advice if needs be but thought I'd ask here before bothering them.

to fully remove any remaining G1 we would recommend G4 glass polish by hand (bit of elbow grease scrub) or machine polisher. once polished with G4, you can then use some water to remove the G4 haze, followed by G6 glass cleaner or neat IPA (isopropanol alcohol). We then recommend 3 layers of G1 on a windscreen and 1-2 layers on all other glass

Okay great I had read cerium oxide polish might be needed with a machine polisher but if I can get it off with G4 and elbow grease then that'll be perfect. Thanks.
