...to be honest "YOU" have an issue with products that claim to be out there yet you have no evidence yourself of the products YOU claim to have under licence and are currently testing...but we have seen nor heard anything about this "miracle" product since the thread started....now I am not getting into a defensive mode just saying what others are thinking....by the way check this site this says it has a hardness rating of between 7-9h http://www.gzox.com.my/bodycoating1-4.html


Believe me, it was not a dig at you ... if it was I would have no problems directing the statement your way.

Why would I want to tell everyone about the product I am trialling? just to let them go research on the net and find it for themselves lol, great marketing strategy there ... I am testing it, and when I have completed my research (as stated 3 or 4 times already ...) I will release my findings.

I am open to the fact these 9H coatings are available, just don't think there are currently any used for detailing purposes. As for GZox, i would be very surprised as it is sold as a Quartz (SiO2) coating, it would be impossible for it to cure harder than it's original components would it not?

Russ; if you and one other person are the only people licensed to use this 9H coating you speak of then why are you so worried about releasing info? as no one else would be able to buy it anyway?

Ever started a thread and wish you hadn't bothered

:roll:


Which is why I havent said what product it is that I am using.....

not the only licensed people to use it but the only detailers, it is in mainstream but for dealerships that close a sale on a £100k to £1m car....

At the end of the day I speak of a product that is already in use but not in the detailing market....it is a bespoke LSP for a few and will hopefully be kept that way....I have done a test of its sheeting and beading on a customers VXR and my van is the willing competitor in the next few days with the weather we are having at the minute so will video its self cleaning ability....its been on the van a week but the VXR for a month....

we can all have the protection...and layer out own waxes over the top of it! :lol:

Will the wax slide off?


You can put wax over Gtechniq, I asked that question a while back, as I wanted to apply it to my soft Honda paint to stop marring a little, but love the detailing process and love wax on my car as preference......

So I have knocked together...

self cleaning nano coating with an mohs of 6 ish
super hydrophobic coating with mohs of 7 ish
ceramic coating with mohs of 8

Amazing what a bit of science and a sigma aldrich account can do for you!

Oh and before anyone asks... this was just a bit of fun for me... I'm not trying to advertise anything!!


I'm interested in testing what you have "knocked up." Drop me a PM if you would.... I would be interested in the ceramic for my Honda alone.... Very interested Mr. M

Sounds absolutely incredible...

Unfortunately it is not up to the necessary durability levels for exterior vehicle use. Of course someone will probably forget this little detail when they try marketing it!!


What makes you say that? It says it's good enough for power lines and looking at weather around my way sometimes, that's pretty good!

saw this mentioned over on DW a few weeks back...looks good in practice but at what cost....the smaller the nano particle the greater the Hydrophobic effect....i think...but i am no chemist/physicist are what ever but if they are that small then they are likely to cause skin and tissue damage as they will effectively be small enough to penetrate the skin....please dont quote me on this as its what i was told a few days ago by a supplier of mine....

im pretty sure it can be., this next qoite was taken from the cyc shops product description for exo:

Gtechniq EXO offers sensational surface functionality and protection and an exceptionally easy application process. Gtechniq EXO works on very wide range of substrates including paint, gel coat, glass, metal, fabric, stone and perspex.

case closed methinks. :cool:
