Gyeon Q² Mohs is a state of the art quartz coating that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. Developed in Japan, Gyeon Q² Mohs uses the latest in low volatile content silicon (Si) technology to lay down a hybrid film of perhydropolysilazane (PHPS), hydroxyl-rich organic copolymers and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) that condenses rapidly to form an amorphous organic-silica nano-composite that chemically bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level. Unlike rival products, Gyeon Q² Mohs actually gains molecular weight as it cures (as skeletal Si-N bonds are replaced with Si-O bonds), which improves its structural integrity and restricts its shrinkage to 5% during the curing process (the average figure for SiO2 coatings is 30%). As a result, each coat of Gyeon Q² Mohs imparts a measurable 0.2 micron increase in total paint thickness, and significantly improves the scratch resistance of the underlying finish; on average, each coat adds two grades of hardness (2H) on the pencil hardness scale.
As a result of being coated with an ultra-smooth, extremely dense layer of this organic-silica nano-composite, treated surfaces become hydrophobic (water-hating), which causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and roll off very quickly. This beading action not only looks good, but also tends to pick up and carry away fresh contaminants, which, combined with the naturally high scratch resistance of the coating, makes routine washing easier and much safer. In addition to this strong self-cleaning effect, Gyeon Q² Mohs also provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for up to two years at a time, even on daily drivers (it is impervious to cleaning chemicals and pressure washing, and once fully cured can only be removed by machine polishing). Gyeon Q² Mohs is currently supplied as a pre-packed kit containing either a 30 ml, 50 ml or 100 ml bottle of Gyeon Q² Mohs, a 100 ml bottle of Gyeon Q²M Cure, a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Block, four Gyeon Q²M Applicator Suedes and an instruction booklet.
