Gyeon Q² Syncro is a state of the art quartz coating system that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. It achieves this through the use of two distinct products that are supplied as a kit; Gyeon Q² Mohs and Gyeon Q² Skin. The former 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.
The second product in the system, Gyeon Q² Skin, is a silicone-based topcoat. As a result of comprising a high proportion of organic components (hydrocarbons), this sacrificial topcoat subtly alters the look of the Gyeon Q² Mohs finish (by adding richness and gloss) and modifies its behaviour with respect to water. Whereas surfaces treated with Gyeon Q² Mohs become naturally water-hating (hydrophobic), the addition of Gyeon Q² Skin increases their slickness greatly, which causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and sheet off even more quickly. This not only enhances the notable self-cleaning effect for which Gyeon Q² Mohs is famed, but also serves to reduce the risk of water spots forming during the first few weeks following application. Gyeon Q² Syncro is currently supplied as a pre-packed kit containing either a 50 ml or 100 ml bottle of Gyeon Q² Mohs, either a 30 ml or 50 ml bottle of Gyeon Q² Skin, a 100 ml bottle of Gyeon Q²M Cure, a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Block, eight Gyeon Q²M Applicator Suedes and an instruction booklet.
