Gyeon Q² Tire is an innovative SiO2-based rubber coating, and redefines what we can expect from products designed for tyres. Unlike traditional tyre dressings, which sit on the surface of the tyre and quickly wash away, Gyeon Q² Tire penetrates the surface and bonds to the rubber at the molecular level. As a result, it's far more durable, and should thus be classed as a protectant rather than a dressing. We've been using it on our daily drivers for several years now and find that each application typically lasts for a minimum of four weeks, even in wet weather. However, this can be extended to six weeks or more if it is layered and heated gently with a heat gun.
Gyeon Q² Tire is a unique rubber coating comprising dimethylsiloxane polymers suspended in a base of hydrotreated light distillates. These distillates serve as a bonding agent, as they are able to penetrate the rubber and adhere to it, forming an ideal surface for the dimethylsiloxane polymers to bond to. Once applied, these polymers condense rapidly to form a flexible silica-based coating that bonds to the rubber at the molecular level. The viscosity of the carrier gel enables precise application and minimises the risk of sling being thrown off on to adjacent body panels. Treated tyres retain a dark satin-looking finish that lasts wash after wash for many weeks on end.
For best results, tyres to be treated with Gyeon Q² Tire must be spotlessly clean and completely dry before use; we recommend scrubbing them with Bilt Hamber surfex-HD and then wiping them down with Gyeon Q²M Prep once dry. Only 2-3 squirts of Gyeon Q² Tire are required per tyre, and these should be applied as thinly and evenly as possible using a Flexipads Split Foam Applicator Pad. Once applied, leave it to dry fully for 1-2 hours before driving. If this is not possible, wipe each tyre down gently with a PB Utility Towel to remove any excess and minimise the risk of sling. Alternatively, to speed up the drying time and maximise the coating's durability, you may wish to force cure it with a heat gun.
