Lightbulb CQUARTZ FINEST - Official launch on DW !

Hello everyone.

We are pioneers in every product we try to do .
so here we are moving the bar higher now.
I am very proud to introduce you the next level in car paint protection !
our new coating : Cquartz FINEST


an evolution formula of Cquartz coating.
Using stronger condensed nano particles with better cross linking between each other.
together With a new secret nano material used making “3D” structure , for becoming very tough nano structure layer,
CQUARTZ FINEST is harder, thicker, with less water drops left on surface (sliding angle) and glossier than Cquartz.

Anti Fouling effect : Low sliding angle ensure less droplets left on surface , less droplets =less possible water marks.

CQUARTZ FINEST will give much more anti scratch protection on car paint surface (increase hardness up to 2H*) with same easy application way.
*-MOHS scale, Vary on paint surface hardness.

more technical details in our website.



the FINEST coat will come with two years warranty program(though it will last much longer) through authorized pro detailers only.
UK detailing shop's who are interested in becoming Authorized Cquartz FINEST are welcome to contact me directly or to contact Gordon at CarPro.UK , our official new distributor in the UK.

as some of you know me.. i like to proof well our products,lab and real life tests! , we believe products should always deliver what they say so..
here is a short video done by Jyrki (CarPro Finland) to show how hard is Cquartz FINEST .
this car , Volvo, coated by 1 layer coat. rubbed with NO lubricant with scotchBright with about 1kg pressure..
results very light swirls which has been removed with light finishing polish.

more tests and demos will be shown later on.

please watch in HD :

the Cquartz kit will continue selling as usual ofcours through our resellers.

any comments and questions are welcome

Looks very promising!

Is this available to the public? Any dangers from incorrect application like other Quartz based coatings? Price point?

looks a good video and great product, but i kinda think it may have been a litle better if the panel didnt have any marks on it as that started off with swirls.

Hi Andrew

Sorry , wont be available to Public.. only authorized detailers network we are building now over the UK.
about the danger, it still can be polished off, its very hard coated but while not fully hardened it can be removed

we dont believe in so called "permanent coat".. nothing is permanent if it can be removed mechanically.

Hi Dave
this was quick video made. i can ensure you the surface was competly polished and ready to coat. the first pic you see there is only to show the scotchbright clearly.. in fact this pic was taken after the rubbing.
i hope Jyrki will chime in and explain more about his quick test .

Maybe include a video of the same test without this coating also to compare.

From what I see, it leaves quite a mess in the video...

Don't understand about hardness. In Mohs scale car paint is between 2H - 3H. Paint is soft now cuz don't have lead etc. When we make cqf coat we raise for 2H and we have about 4H/5H hardness of coat.

I agree with this statement! 2H on the mohs scale is dead soft (Equivalent to gypsum, the basis for blackboard chalk.), and softer than quartz (What I believe is the base material of the consumer CQuartz coating.), which is 7H on the mohs scale. 2H on the mohs scale could be scratched with a fingernail. Even increasing the existing paint hardness by a factor of 2H would make it softer than consumer CQuartz. If the consumer version of CQuartz was 7H on the mohs scale, and the new professional version was 8-9H, that would make more sense... Could you please explain, Avi?

Also, what does it take to become a licensed CQuartz detailer? In your literature it said 'professionals who own detailing/polishing shop centers', which to me excludes some [very talented] people who own a mobile business, or work from home. Would they have to pay a fee, like with Zymol or Swissvax? Would special training by CQuartz representatives be involved?

Cheers...
