Waterspotting is the bane of many detailing enthusiasts' lives, and arises when hard tap water dries out on exterior surfaces, leaving a visible residue behind. This residue is not only unsightly, but often difficult to remove, particularly on unprotected surfaces and those protected with inorganic silica-based coatings (due to mineral affinity). The easiest way to remove fresh waterspotting from exterior automotive surfaces is to wipe them down with a mild acid, as most of the mineral content in tap water comprises calcium carbonate, which is alkaline. GYEON Q2M WATERSPOT is the perfect product for this task, as it contains lubricating oils in addition to a mild acid, which means that it helps to limit the risk of inflicting fresh marring when tackling waterspotting.
GYEON Q2M WATERSPOT is an innovative product designed to help maintain quartz coatings, which are susceptible to waterspotting (due to mineral affinity), particularly during the first few weeks after their application (i.e. when they are still curing). By using a mild solution of phosphoric acid and methyl alcohol, GYEON Q2M WATERSPOT removes water spots and stains quickly and easily without degrading underlying silica-based coatings in any way. Added lubricating oils also ensure that GYEON Q2M WATERSPOT has a long working time (i.e. a little goes a long way and it dries out slowly) and that it remains extremely slick as it dissolves water spots and stains, which in turn means that it greatly helps to limit the risk of inflicting fresh marring when tackling such defects.
GYEON Q2M WATERSPOT is a pre-diluted acid-based solution and should thus be used neat. For best results, wash and dry your car as usual and then, working on small sections at a time (it is safe for use on bodywork, windows and trims), lightly mist a Meguiar’s Microfibre Applicator Pad with product and then use this to work it into the finish lightly and evenly before buffing it off with a PB Luxury Buffing Towel. In extreme cases, you may need to repeat the process several times in order to achieve a flawless looking finish. Note that in some cases the mineral content in water spots can etch underlying bodywork and glass, meaning that defects remain even once the surficial mineral content is removed. The solution to this issue is to polish the affected surfaces.
