Gtechniq HALO was built from the ground up by Gtechniq due to the growing trend of cars being prepared with Paint Protection Film (PPF). As a direct result Gtechniq HALO was born a revolutionary coating designed for PPF & Vinyl coatings. Gtechniq HALO creates a flexible ultra-dense film that bonds to the surface of the film. There are a number of benefits to this, not only does it make the surface much easier to clean and keep clean but also adds UV protection reducing the yellowing of the surface over time.
If your car is vinyl wrapped or coated in PPF, then it's likely you have invested heavily in having this done. Gtechniq HALO is the icing on the cake that will help protect the film for years to come. Gtechniq HALO doesn't effect the look of the film, meaning this is suitable for all types of PPF & Vinyl including gloss, satin & matte finishes.
Gtechniq HALO enhances the performance of Paint Protection Film (PPF) and vinyl. It’s a chemically bonding, ultra-dense flexible film that becomes the permanent surface of the film – protecting it from the elements a car faces on a daily basis.
The density of the coating and its low surface energy improve dirt and water repellency of PPF or vinyl. It also helps to prevent staining from dirt ingression, as well as reducing yellowing caused by UV rays.
Overall, Gtechniq HALO keeps the PPF looking in a much better condition and makes it much easier for people to keep their car clean following PPF/ vinyl application. Rigorous real-world and laboratory testing has proven Gtechniq HALO to be compatible with all types of gloss, matte, and satin vinyl and PPF. It is also proven to work on self-healing films.

How To Use
(i) Shake bottle well and wear gloves
(iI) To apply HALO, your vehicle must be indoors and remain indoors, for at least 12 hours after the coating has been applied. For best results, good lighting is essential
(iII) If applying to previously installed film, wash and decontaminate the vehicle with Gtechniq W5 Citrus All Purpose Cleaner and W6 Iron and General Fallout Remover
(iv) Spray a 30% dilution of isopropyl alcohol (IPA) on to a Gtechniq MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth
(v) With your surface fully cooled, buff to remove any fingerprints or other surface contaminants. This process ensures you get the maximum number of chemical bonds between Gtechniq HALO and the film or vinyl
(vi) Apply Gtechniq HALO evenly on the application pad and set the bottle aside
(vii) Apply with applicator provided in overlapping strokes to an area roughly 2’x2′, or work to the bodylines of the vehicle
(viii) After coating a panel remove residue with an MF1 cloth. Always remove from further than you have applied, working from the outside in
(ix) Once applied carry out a final check with an Gtechniq MF1 cloth and a bright but diffused light source – this will ensure no residue remains on the surface. Allow the coating to cure for at least one hour and repeat the application process so that all film and vinyl is coated with two layers of HALO
