Product Description

The Gtechniq EXO v3 Ultra Durable Coating is a semi-permanent paint coating that will protect virtually any surface of your car! It is the latest technology to help protect your paint for years and enhance the appearance.

EXO v3 is a reformulation of the popular EXO v2. EXO v2 performed exceptionally well in various areas, but a few things stuck out to detailers and Gtechniq noticed that there was room to grow and take this product to the next level. Gtechniq worked hard and sent various samples directly to Accredited Detailers for some real world testing and feedback. Hundreds of samples were sent to these to detailers all across the world in areas like Asia, Europe, Scandinavia and North America. After this first hand testing, Gtechniq compiled all of the feedback and got to work and the results are the incredible EXO v3.

The first thing you notice is the EXO v3 is incredibly easy to apply and remove. EXO v3 is a non-hybrid formula comprised of two parts, an inorganic base coat and an organic top coat. The base coat is a chemically bonding hard coat that bonds directly to the surface with which it is applied. The top coat is very slick and wet looking. This is what gives you the gloss that everyone loves, but that is not it. This coat is also highly dirt and water repellent! You will be amazed at how glossy, slick to the touch and ultra-hydrophobic this coating is. Water will bead up in small drops and run off your paint with ease! You will notice this coating stands up to UV rays and everyday elements for up to 2 years! EXO v3 can be used on all painted surfaces including clear coat, matte finishes, enamel, single stage paint, wheels, chrome, and stainless parts and trim. Protect your paint with ease with the Gtechniq EXOv3 Ultra Durable Coating!

Application Information
  • EXOv2 can be applied as a standalone sealant or as a top layer for Gtechniq C1 Crystal Lacquer (for best results, apply C1 Crystal Lacquer as a base coat for easy to mark and dark paints)
  • When applying over C1, this should be done between 3 and 12 hours after completing the C1 application, depending on the environment temperature and conditions
  • Use at least two clean microfiber towels when stacking with C1
  • Ensure that the vehicle is out of direct sunlight but warmer than 40 degrees F, is completely dry, and will stay dry for at least 3 hours after application
  • Remove all blemishes from vehicle's paintwork
  • Wipe down all surfaces using PW Panel Wipe and a clean microfiber towel (Note: if used over a freshly applied coating of C1 this step is not recommended)
  • Put on the rubber gloves provided
  • Fold the microfiber cloth into a small square
  • Tip several drops of EXOv2 onto micro-suede cloth
  • Spread the coating over an entire panel ensuring full coverage (Note: in warmer environments work in smaller sections)
  • Fold the first MF cloth twice to form a square. Spread and remove most of the residue using a light touch to avoid any marring of the surface
  • Use the second folded cloth to remove all remaining residues. To ensure all excess residue is removed, inspect each panel from direct and oblique angles, also, try to use bright, but flat lighting.
  • Once vehicle is coated, repeat for a second coat
  • Allow the coating to cure for at least 3 hours
  • EXO v2 can be over-coated with other products, but please note the surface performance effects of this product will be present rather than the effects of EXO v2

I applied two coats of this over the crystal serum light. I love how the water just falls right off, it makes drying effortless and effective. Not sure if it added any more shine in addition to the CSL , guess I didn't pay that much attention. I think I'm going to apply this to my rims that have the c5 wheel armour, I want even my hydrophobic action that the c5 already has. I love every product from gtechniq except the glass cleaner, can't seem to get it as clear as my griots garage glass cleaner.

I applied Exo 30ml (2 coats over the whole car and three coats over the hood, top and trunk area) over C1 on a 2004 Pearl White 350Z. The Exo was very easy to apply and looked awesome. The level of shine was fantastic. The only difficulty was the Pearl White made it very hard to see what was going on with the product but, I have found this to be the case with all sealants and coatings.

I wanted to stop by and let everyone know that EXO v2 is a winner of a product. The application is easy and the look is great. To me a good. LSP add to the shine and reflection of a freshly polished vehicle. The EXO just makes is shinier and the beads are tight and the finish sheds water readily. A good rain and the car is incredibly self cleaning. I have gotten 18 months of great performance and am going to recoat at about 22 months where the beads have really diminished.
