The fact that it does not include all the professional tools is a bother. However, the quality of the product is so spotless that the absence of these tools is compensated for. The added bonus of being able to coat all surfaces is a rarity in most ceramic coatings. Hence, this is an investment worth the buck.
CarPro CQuartz Ceramic Coating Review
While it is not unlikely that people generally direct their attention to the container full of the product, paying close heed to the additional tools are equally important.
Most ceramic coating kits are far from being “kits”. They have a high price slapped on to the boxes but not much to make it worth it. You then have to tire out your wallet even more in order to be well-equipped for the task.
But hey, why spend your greens on an incomplete kit when you can get a complete package for a friendlier price?
The CQuartz Ceramic Coating comes in 2 different sizes – 30ml and a 50ml set. This proves beneficial when you have a medium-sized vehicle or want to coat two small ones. The concoction comes in a blue glass vial which looks like a piece of from the evening sky.
Both kits have the same tools – a sponge applicator and 5 suede microfiber cut clothes. The inclusion of the 5 pieces of clothes is a hefty convenience compared to the 2-piece set.
The rectangular items are quite small and are not enough to cover an entire vehicle with a clean sweep. Hence, points to CQuartz Ceramic Coating for that.
The bar sponge applicator is quite decent. There is nothing much to it except that it gets the job done. To ensure that you do not get the mixture all over the sponge and get it on your hands, 3 faces of the sponge are colored yellow while the application face is painted grey-black. That is the part that sparks the magic.
The beauty of CQuartz Ceramic Coating is that it can be applied to ANY part of the car – panels, windows, tire rims, tires, badges, etc. This is often not the case for other ceramic sealants in the market. So, if you are in the mood to turn your vehicle in a high shine disco ball, feel free to go crazy with it!
It creates a semi-permanent bond with the subject surfaces and adjusts with the molecules to become one and build a very resilient exterior. The formula is binding, giving you a solid wax hard shell that lasts up to 2 years.
The infused nanoparticles blend in smoothly in between the paint molecules and the surface of any other panel in the vehicle. This gives it the scope to sit well between the particles for an even and polished appearance. You will not be needing any special tools to buff in the compound.
Long Term Protection
The paint job on your vehicle is exposed to the harsh UV rays that lead to the fading of the paint or oxidation. Yes, you can change the paint but continuously changing the paint willy-nilly is expensive. The CQuartz Ceramic Coating applies like a shield against the sun and filters out harmful UV rays.
With 70% quartz magic contained in a bottle, this ceramic coating provides gridlock protection against deterrents like dirt, grime, mud, bird droppings, splatters, etc. A good spraying with water will clear off any contaminants stuck to your vehicle, no problem.
Water does not stick to it at all. Imagine a thousand crystal clear beads being dropped on the floor. Now, imagine these beads rolling off a plane. That is exactly how water reacts to the sealant and thus the car dries down incredibly fast.
While water spots do not form as easily as it does on surfaces without any coating, it is important to wipe down quickly in order to be able to remove them effortlessly. You can go off-roading on mud if you desire, knowing that you can just shower down the car for a professional looking cleanup.
Quartz coating is especially beneficial to your paint work on your vehicle become it is thrice as hard as the paint component. This is why paint is usually susceptible to chipping. This ceramic coating provides a nourishing cushioning against abrasions and scratches, keeping the paint looking as good as new.
Hassle Free Application
Just like any other ceramic coating, application of CQuartz Ceramic Coating is pretty much the same. Take a piece of the suede cloth and wrap it round the sponge along the yellow faces. Take several drops of CQuartz on the open grey-black face and rub along the panels.
A good method would be to coat the vehicle in sections. This way you can remember which parts are done and can easily spot the undone areas as well. Make sure you do not take too much product on your sponge to avoid any errors in drying.
If you are someone who gets an itch in the brain seeing tools missing in a package, this is perhaps not the ideal choice. But the polished finish is something you will be able to forgive other limitations for.
Nitrile gloves and buffing towels are pretty inexpensive. You do not necessarily need nitrile gloves either. Substitute them with surgical gloves and problem solved!
Make sure you use the cross-hatching technique when you apply the coating in order to get a butter smooth finish. Honestly, this will be the best new year present to yourself because once you take your baby out for a ride under the nightlights or the bright sun, all of this will be worth it.
