How to Maintain Your Gtechniq Ceramic Coating

At Unit–11, one question that is frequently asked is how to maintain a car that has been ceramic coated.

When faced with a wide range of car care options available in the market, it can be challenging to determine the most suitable products for maintaining your newly coated paint and the correct sequence for their usage. Let’s examine the recommended products and their purposes.

In terms of shampoos, Gtechniq suggests using Gwash, which is available at online store. Gwash is formulated to complement all of our coatings and is completely biodegradable. It creates a rich lather that effectively separates the dirt layer from the surface of your car’s paint. Additionally, Gwash is free from any polymers or additives that could potentially impact the effectiveness of the coating.

Helpful Hint: Certain shampoos may have polymers or additives that aim to enhance shine or provide a protective layer. However, these polymers can disrupt the effectiveness of ceramic coatings. To prevent this, Gtechniq suggests opting for a pure shampoo without any additional additives.

The W6 Iron & General Fallout Remover by Gtechniq is a highly adaptable solution suitable for both paint and painted or clear coated alloy wheels. Its concentrated consistency attaches firmly to the surface and successfully eliminates persistent and potentially harmful impurities from both paint and wheels. Furthermore, the Iron & General Fallout Remover comes with a corrosion inhibitor specifically formulated to maintain the aesthetic of your wheels.

Pro Tip: Begin by spraying the wheel cleaner on the surface from top to bottom.

As the weather gets warmer, the front of vehicles often become covered in bugs and flies. The W8 Bug Remover from Gtechniq uses a special formula that effectively dissolves bugs without damaging any previously applied coatings or waxes. To use, simply spray the product onto the affected surface and observe as the bugs quickly disappear.

Pro Tip: To achieve optimal results, first apply Gtechniq W8 onto the painted surface and let it sit for a couple of minutes. Then, use a pressure washer to rinse off the product.

In terms of drying a vehicle, Gtechniq offers a few choices. For non-coated cars, we suggest using the MF2 Microfibre Drying Towel, known for its absorbent properties, generous dimensions, and gentle fibers. This towel effectively reduces potential scratches and provides exceptional drying results.

To effectively dry coated cars, Gtechniq suggests using the MF4 Diamond Sandwich Drying Towel, available at https://www.gtechniq.co.uk/shop/auto/accessories/mf4-diamond-sandwich-drying-towel-copy/. This towel boasts a much higher absorption rate compared to regular microfibre drying towels. Its outer layers are extremely soft and absorbent, drawing water into the towel’s core reservoir, resulting in a flawless, streak-free finish.

Useful Tip: It is important to regularly wash your drying towels in order to preserve their absorbency.
