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.’

Yep plenty good enough.
And so easy to apply its worth putting two coats on.

Just as durable if not better than a decent wax.

A few years ago everyone on here was using it saying how brilliant it was/is.

Its still good, and on a well prepped surface will give great results.
Used to bead up nicely too.

Sorry to steal the thread, but I just wanted to ask if its needed to bin the towels after use, or its fine to just soak and wash them after use. Worried about it crystallizing on my cloths. Additionaly, do you think this can last me through winter? Planning to lay down a few coats in november, as I only have "show" waxes on me atm, and a bottle of this so I thought it would be better idea for the harsher elements. Cheers

No need to bin towels. It should last 3-4 months or 7000-9000 km at least when I tested it.

if you are looking for protection through the winter, would you not be better with DIY coating like Gyeon Cancoat or GTechniq Light? Ok you will need to do apply inside, but then you can top up with C2V3 during a wash when you apply as a drying aide?

Sadly, I don't have access to any indoor area / garage. That's why I am looking at this possibility.

You can apply second coat after you have applied whole car.
