Gtechniq manufactures products based on real science, innovative materials and total ease of use.
Coining this technology as 3S or Smart Surface Science, the range harnesses the performance of nano scale composite materials and tested to extremes to ensure our deep gloss coatings work harder, smarter and more easily than anything else you’ve tried.
Gtechniq autoSystem combines chemically with original paints to form a brand new, fully optimised Smart Surface that’s harder wearing and easier to clean. Conventional wax / PTFE / polymer products add a soft layer that’s vulnerable to stains and scratches and relies on weaker physical bonds for durability
Crystal Serum (Professional Only)
The composite structure of a hard 9h top and softer 7h base layer offer improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. Compared to standard ceramic coatings, Crystal Serum forms a relatively thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss. Resistant to chemicals from ph2 to ph13, so when you clean your car, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easy to remove. Crystal Serum is unaffected by extreme heat changes, even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.
* Please note that whilst Crystal Serum is very resistant to bird droppings, the “mechanical” effect of hot paintwork swelling around bird droppings left on your vehicle’s surface means that some etching from bird droppings can occur. We therefore recommend you remove bird droppings immediately and in the unlikely event of paintwork etching we will be able to remove and re-coat affected areas.
Crystal Serum Base Retail Application (From $1,195)
- Pre-wash to loosen dirt and break down existing waxes
- Hand wash and door jambs cleaned

- Single-stage machine polish (paint pore cleansing and minor swirl removal)
- Tyres glossed
- Body coated with Gtechniq Crystal Serum and cured
Crystal Serum, The Bon Vivant Level of Preparation (POA)
With this popular tier of installation, on top of what you get with the base retail installation (written above), we will provide a true multi-stage paintwork correction to ensure a practically defect-free bodywork. This means we can chase after deeper surface defects such as bird dropping etchings, water spots, deep random isolated scratches and swirl type scratches.

C1 Crystal Lacquer (From $795)
Although deemed as our entry level paintwork coating, C1 Crystal Lacquer packs a punch with the best of other brands. It has been independently proven in the world’s most respected weathering facility. Over a simulated run of 3 years in Arizona sunlight, a C1 coated panel lost half the amount of gloss as its next best competitor, and a third less gloss than the average score for all other products tested. As well as gloss retention C1 Crystal Lacquer is extremely durable, as it actually becomes the functional surface of a car’s paintwork.
Also scratch-resistant, C1 forms a crystalline film which is extremely hard – this characteristic makes it effective at preventing minor scratching from poor wash technique on relatively soft automotive paint.
C1 coated panels have been tested against uncoated panels, as well as high-end carnauba waxes and polymer sealants.
On average, panels coated with Gtechniq C1, exhibited 50 percent fewer swirl marks than those coated with waxes or left uncoated.
Exo V3 Ultra Durable Coating
Exo V3 is an ultra durable non-hybrid coating that is recommended as a top coat to be paired with either C1 Crystal Lacquer or Crystal Serum for an insatiable amount of warm gloss and slickness added to paintwork. Unsurpassed water repellency is achieved as the surface becomes super-hydrophobic promoting even easier self-cleaning power and making your wash regiment quicker and safer.
The perfect product for those searching for those valuable few percentage points between a great looking finish to one that’s stellar to the naked eye.
You also have the option of coating your wheels with Gtechniq Cyrstal Serum. Providing you the benefit of easier cleaning and preventing iron brake dust from pitting the rims over time, coating wheels on a vehicle is almost a necessity. Coating the wheels as an analogy, is like the Teflon layer on your frying pan, making it easier to clean and the surface more non-stick.
Faces-only coating – For faces-only coating, we leave the wheels on, prepare the wheel (multiple alcohol wipe downs) and coat only the exterior.
Full-wheel coating – With the full-wheel coating service, we remove the entire wheel to prepare and completely coat them. If painted, your calipers can also be coated as means to colour-lock them and prevent them from fading. We will re-mount the wheels to their same corners and apply torque tightening to factory specs.
I1 Smart Fabric – Wine, coffee etc. simply rolls off the surface and can be wiped away with a damp cloth with zero staining. I1 coats each fibre individually which means the texture of the fabric remains unaffected and allowing fabric to breathe. This product works very well on convertible roofs with great durability. Being solvent based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving an I1 treated surface much better durability and overall performance. Typically an I1 treated surface will outlast conventional water repellent coatings by a factor of approximately x5 with durability on soft-tops for example, lasting as much as three years.
L1 Leather Guard –Prevents dye transfer onto pale coloured leather typically preventing blue jeans marking cream leather auto interiors. L1 is ultra durable, stain resistant and provides effective UV protection. Being solvent based L1 penetrates deep into the leather and since and it is because L1 is a true nano scale product that it offers better durability and performance than standard products. L1 also adds water repllency to the surface of the leather.
