What to do and what not to do

Gtechniq is designed to protect your factory clear coat, to provide a protective shield against the elements and to keep your vehicle looking new at all times. To maximize the effects of Gtechniq and to ensure your investment is long lasting, a few basic maintenance steps should be taken. With simple care, your coating will reward you for years to come.

Car Washes

Do: Hand Wash, Touchless Wash

Don't: Automatic Brush Wash


Home Washing

Do: Quality car wash soap with no wax, wash in shade

Don't: Don't wash in sun, dont wax or polish, dont use abrasive towels or any other product besides water or soap.


Curing time is one week.


During this time, the following should be avoided:

- Sprinklers: the coating protects from water spots, and is less likely to etch than your 

   factory clear coat, but it can get spots during the curing process, and can be costly to 


- Parking under a tree

- Allowing bird droppings, sap, or other contaminants to be on the car and bake in sun

- Washing or using abrasive properties on the paint


If you notice any of the following like water spots, bird droppings, tree sap, etc during the first week, remove it with a clean wet microfiber towel softly as the coating can be soft during curing.

Washing Your Vehicle At Your Home

Gtechniq is very slick, which means most things will dissolve and slide off because of the self-cleaning properties.


You should minimize rubbing and avoid using dry towels on the coating.


Bird droppings that have been dried, bugs, and tree sap can be dissolved using alchohol type solvents and wiped off with damp microfiber towel. 


To properly maintain your vehicle, it is recommended that you wash it on a bi-weekly basis so that you don't have excessive contamination build up.


Avoid automatic, cheap car washes as they have brushes that are abrasive and will mess up your ceramic coating.


Also avoid high pH detergent style cleaners.


You should not wash your car in direct sunlight to minimize water spotting and streak marks.


Always dry the vehicle completely, do not air dry. Tap water has minerals that leave deposits and creates water spots.


Only use quality microfiber towels for best results, and avoid aggressive wiping.

Spot Removal


Dont use any abrasive products to polish or remove any spots. Dont use excessive force to remove spots.


Contaminants like bird droppings, sap, dust, etc, should be removed as soon as possible to avoid staining and hardening on the coating. Any stains left behind from bird droppings will break down after a few days without affecting the coating.
