We Say

The Light versions of Gyeons coatings are no different to their regular coatings, the only difference is they contain the coatings only. These are great for those that don't require the extra bits included. In the case of Q2 Syncro EVO Light, it doesn't contain the Q2M Cure. If you require the full kit, it can be found here: Gyeon Q2 Syncro EVO

Description

Gyeon Q² Syncro EVO 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 EVO and Gyeon Q² Skin EVO. 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 EVO 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 EVO, 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 EVO finish (by adding richness and gloss) and modifies its behaviour with respect to water. Whereas surfaces treated with Gyeon Q² Mohs EVO become naturally water-hating (hydrophobic), the addition of Gyeon Q² Skin EVO 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 EVO is currently supplied as a pre-packed kit containing either a 30 ml or 30 ml bottle of Gyeon Q² Mohs EVO, either a 30 ml or 50 ml bottle of Gyeon Q² Skin, a 100 ml bottle of Gyeon Q²M Cure, a Gyeon Q²M Applicator, stickers and an instruction booklet.

How To Use

You should apply Gyeon Q² Syncro EVO in a dry place out of direct sunlight. In all cases, prepare the surfaces you are going to treat in the normal way (wash > decontaminate > polish), and then do a wipe down with Gyeon Q²M Prep to ensure that they are spotlessly clean. Next, using the supplied dropping pipette, lightly wet a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Suedes with Gyeon Q² Mohs EVO, wrap it a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Block and begin wiping it evenly on to the first panel, using light pressure and overlapping strokes. You should aim to treat no more than a single panel at a time, because after an initial volatilization period of 1-2 minutes you must then buff off the (still wet) residue as quickly as possible, i.e. before it begins to harden. Buffing off is best accomplished with a PB Super Buffing Towel using moderate speed and pressure in order to fully remove the residue and reveal an intense streak-free shine. Using a bright light, check the panel carefully for any smears and remove them before moving on; failure to remove smears fully can result in them hardening to the point of being impossible to remove without machine polishing, so make sure you are thorough!

After all panels are treated wait for a minimum of 4 hours to allow the basecoat layer to harden (if you wish, you can accelerate this process by heating the treated panels to 60°C for 10 minutes using an infra-red heat lamp). Next, lightly wet a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Suedes with Gyeon Q² Skin EVO, wrap it a Gyeon Q²M Applicator Block and begin wiping it evenly on to the first panel, using light pressure and overlapping strokes. You should aim to treat no more than a single panel at a time, because after an initial volatilization period of 1-2 minutes you must then buff off the (still wet) residue as quickly as possible, i.e. before it begins to dry out. Buffing off is best accomplished with a PB Super Buffing Towel using moderate speed and pressure in order to fully remove the residue and reveal an intense streak-free shine. Using a bright light, check the panel carefully for any smears and remove them before moving on; failure to remove smears fully can result in them drying and out and becoming difficult to remove, so make sure you are thorough!

After all panels are treated the car must then be left in a dry place out of direct sunlight for a minimum of 12 hours to allow the coating system to harden further (if you wish, you can accelerate this process by heating the treated panels to 60°C for 10 minutes using an infra-red heat lamp). Finally, to further reduce the risk of water spots forming while it continues to cure (full curing takes around 14 days to achieve), you should apply a final topcoat of Gyeon Q²M Cure (you should also avoid washing the car with any kind of detergent for 7 days following application). Please note that you must discard all used applicators and towels after you've applied each coat of Gyeon Q² Mohs EVO because it becomes extremely hard as it cures, forming a residue that has the potential to inflict severe marring or worse if applicators and towels are re-used. Furthermore, after each use you must also replace the dropping pipette with the air-tight cap, and wash out the pipette with hot running water. Failure to follow these steps will most likely result in any leftover product setting solid in the bottle and the dropping pipette, rendering them unusable in the future.
