GYEON Q2 PRIME

GYEON Q2 PRIME is a new quartz coating that showcases the latest advances in low volatile silicon (Si) technology, and is aimed squarely at detailing enthusiasts. If, like us, you always question new developments in the world of car care, then you're probably wondering how GYEON Q2 PRIME differs to rival nanotechnology products, and what it offers that they don't? And maybe more importantly, how it justifies its price tag? The answers to these questions all stem back to its alcohol-free formula that lays down a thin film of silica that crystallizes as it cures. None of the nanotechnology coatings we stock work in the same way; they lay down glass-like coatings that form strong molecular bonds, but they do not fully crystallize. It's easy to confirm this behaviour in real life. If you leave small samples of all of the SiO2-based products we stock open overnight, all will still be in liquid form the following day (minus varying degrees of evaporated solvent content), with the exception of GYEON quartz coatings, which will all have set hard in a fully crystallized state.

Now that we have confirmed how GYEON Q2 PRIME differs to rival products, we can look at the benefits this brings. Firstly, because it contains no alcohol, it does not flash off rapidly upon contact, which makes it far easier to apply, and it also cures successfully at lower temperatures (down to as low as 5°C). Secondly, because it fully crystallizes as it cures, it forms a much harder and more durable coating than rival products. We've tested this by subjecting GYEON Q2 PRIME and the closest rival products we stock to a brutal decontamination test, in which selected panels were: (i) treated with Auto Finesse Oblitarate; (ii) treated with Auto Finesse Iron Out; (iii) clayed with Auto Finesse Clay, and; (iv) treated with neat isopropyl alcohol. In all cases, rival nanotechnology products were clearly stripped to a large extent (greatly diminished beading), but the panel treated with GYEON Q2 PRIME was left beading almost as strongly as the day it was first applied.

Given that GYEON Q2 PRIME is significantly different to rival nanotechnology products, and offers greater durability, more scratch resistance and better protection against the elements, a key question remains; does it offer good value for money? This is a tough call, because at just under £50 per application (on an average-sized car) it is, by some margin, one of the most expensive paint protection products we stock. Are you, as an enthusiast, able to justify this? Only you can decide; early adopters always pay more for the privilege of getting their hands on new technology first, but if you do bite the bullet then you will have the satisfaction of knowing your car is wearing a truly exceptional product. And for professional use? Well, in this guise it makes less sense than its bigger brother, GYEON Q2 MOHS, because the latter offers an even greater level of performance. However, for non-professional use GYEON Q2 PRIME really is a step ahead of the competition.

GYEON Q2 PRIME is supplied as a set, which includes either a 30 ml, 50 ml or 100 ml bottle of GYEON Q2 PRIME, a 100 ml bottle of GYEON Q2M CURE, a GYEON Q2M APPLICATOR SET and an instruction manual (see product image above).

GYEON Q2 PRIME is an advanced quartz coating that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. Developed in South Korea, GYEON Q2 PRIME uses the latest in low volatile content silicon (Si) technology to lay down a film of siloxane polymers that condense rapidly to form a fully crystallized SiO2 coating that bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level. Unlike rival nanotechnology products, GYEON Q2 PRIME contains no alcohol and therefore doesn't flash off rapidly, which makes the application process far easier. Furthermore, GYEON Q2 PRIME features an SiO2 content of more than 50%, which is considerably higher than that found in many rival products. This results in each coat adding, on average, one grade of hardness (1H) on the Mohs scale to the scratch resistance of underlying paint.

As a result of being coated with a smooth, dense layer of fully crystallized SiO2, treated surfaces become naturally water hating (hydrophobic), which causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and roll off very quickly. This extreme beading not only looks good, but also tends to pick up and carry away fresh contaminants, which makes routine washing easier and safer as a result. In addition to these benefits, GYEON Q2 PRIME also provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for up to twelve months at a time, even on daily drivers (it is virtually impervious to cleaning chemicals and pressure washing, and once fully cured can only be removed by machine polishing). The characteristics make GYEON Q2 PRIME an ideal choice of paint protection product for enthusiasts.

GYEON Q2 PRIME is supplied as a set, which includes either a 30 ml, 50 ml or 100 ml bottle of GYEON Q2 PRIME, a 100 ml bottle of GYEON Q2M CURE, a GYEON Q2M APPLICATOR SET and an instruction manual (see product image above).

You should apply GYEON Q2 PRIME in a dry place out of direct sunlight. In all cases, prepare the surfaces you are going to treat in the normal way (wash > decontaminate > polish), and then do a wipe down with GYEON Q2M PREP to ensure that they are spotlessly clean. Next, using the supplied dropping pipette, lightly wet one of the supplied suede applicators with the product and begin wiping it evenly onto the first panel, using light pressure and overlapping strokes. You should aim to treat no more than a single panel at a time, because after an initial volatilization period of 1-2 minutes you must then buff off the (still wet) residue as quickly as possible, i.e. before it dries out and begins to harden. Buffing off is best accomplished with a PB Super Buffing Towel using moderate speed and pressure in order to fully remove the residue and reveal an intense streak-free shine. Using a bright light, check the panel carefully for any smears and remove them before moving on; failure to remove smears fully can result in them hardening to the point of being impossible to remove without machine polishing, so make sure you are thorough!

After all panels are treated, wait for a minimum of an hour and then apply a second coat. The car must then be left in a warm, dry place out of direct sunlight for a minimum of 12 hours to allow the SiO2 coating to harden (if you wish, you can accelerate this process by heating the treated panels to 60C for 10 minutes using an infra-red heat lamp). Finally, to reduce the risk of water spots forming while it continues to cure (full curing takes around 14 days to achieve), you should apply a protective top coat of GYEON Q2M CURE (you should also avoid washing the car with any kind of detergent for the first 7 days). Please note that you must discard all used applicators and towels after youve applied each coat, because GYEON Q2 PRIME hardens massively as it cures, forming a residue that has the potential to inflict severe marring or worse if applicators and towels are re-used. Furthermore, after each use you must also replace the dropping pipette with the air-tight cap, and then wash out the pipette with hot water. Failure to follow these steps will result in any leftover product setting solid in the bottle and the pipette, rendering it unusable in the future.
