Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer


We Say

Gtechniq C1 is extremely easy to apply and ideal for someone new to applying ceramic coatings, or for someone who wants a coating that is durable, but not too much hassle to apply. Whilst C1 is a very good stand alone coating it is complimented perfectly by being over coated with EXO v4 or C2 v3 Liquid Crystal to boost hydrophobicity.
