Why Gtechniq Crystal Serum?
Crystal Serum ceramic coating is the market-leading ceramic composite coating – the best paint protection available.
Because of the strong chemical bond the coating forms with a car’s paintwork, Crystal Serum can only be applied by a trained detailing professional. We are lucky to be Yorkshire’s only Gtechniq Accredited Detailing Centre. Only Accredited detailers that have gone on a Gtechniq training course with the manufacturer themselves can purchase Crystal Serum Ultra and apply it. There are very few in the UK!
Should Crystal Serum be applied incorrectly a car will need wet sanding to remove the coating. This is how good the product is and how it sets instantly. You can only imagine the effect it has on the entire vehicle once applied properly, coupled with Gtechniq Exov4 for the ultimate hydrophobic beading properties.
If Crystal Serum Ultra (9 years) is out of your budget or you think you are only keeping your car for 12-18 months. We have a couple of alternatives for you, Crystal Serum Light which is similar to Ultra however this only lasts 5 years. A lot of our customers choose Crystal Serum Light (5 years) and Exo on top and find this works brilliantly. The price difference is around £150 difference between the 5 year and 9 year, however the hardness and durability of the 9 year (Ultra) coating is exceptionally brilliant.
What does it do?
Crystal Serum is an unbeaten paint protection product. It provides ceramic protection with previously un-achievable levels of gloss, durability, scratch and chemical resistance.
The composite structure offers ultimate safeguard, plus the same slick finish and candy-like gloss as the very best carnauba waxes.
With a 9h top and softer 7h base layer (based on the pencil hardness test), Serum offers improved swirl resistance over regular 9h coatings. It forms a thick combined film which greatly reduces surface hazing and improves gloss.
When your car is cleaned, even the harshest wash chemicals will not dull your gloss, as this Ceramic Coating is resistant to chemicals from pH2 to pH13. And on top of that, contaminants like bird droppings are easy to remove and will not harm a car’s clear coat. As well as chemicals, it is unaffected by extreme heat changes, even from -40 to +250 degrees Celsius and offers exceptional UV protection which prevents premature dulling.
For the definitive hydrophobic finish it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO – this is known as a CS Black treatment.
