There are many excellent paint coating products that are currently available to consumers. CarPro’s Cquartz products have become one of the more recognizable names in the coating industry, and Cquartz UK is an excellent choice for the consumer market.
The Cquartz UK Edition (aka CQUK) is a specially formulated version of the popular Cquartz Ceramic Quartz Paint Protection. This edition is based on the same technology as the regular Cquartz, however it has a few slight improvements for cold temperature application, and specially for the UK while it works great anywhere. CQUK has 70% SiO2 with 99.9% purity, making it the first ever nano silica coating which has such concentration! This high purity percentage ensures having the most transparent glass coating over the surface, high levels of water repellency and long lasting paint protection from dirt, road salt, ice, snow, and other environmental contamination. This coating is extremely easy to use in any temperature, from 41 to 86 degrees and no matter how cold, hot or humid the application is exactly the same.
I was originally drawn to this coating because I live in the Midwest and we see temperature swings from subzero Winters to extremely hot and humid Summers. This variance can make it very difficult to find detailing products, especially paint coatings, that are capable of adapting to these conditions. So far I have applied UK in temperatures ranging from the mid 40′s to the mid 80′s and was impressed with application.

Cquartz UK is fairly easy to apply after you get the hang of it, and leaves an incredible shine on a nicely polished surface. This coating also adds a noticeable “richness” to the paint. It seems to make black even blacker, red even redder, and so on. If you apply UK to half of a panel, you will see this subtle difference that I am talking about if you inspect it carefully in proper lighting.

Another fantastic benefit of this coating, that is sure to be well received by the consumer market, is its price. In a market that is now flooded with various coating options, this product is priced very competitively! I often refer to it as the absolute best “bang for your buck” coating. It offers extremely good performance in terms of protection, durability, and appearance, and is one of the least expensive options available. You simply can’t beat that!
If you’re seeking a great means of protection while also enhancing gloss and making routine maintenance even easier, Cquartz UK is a great option. You can also take a look at the complete application guide for this product by clicking here.
