Product Description

The Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass will protect your glass from harmful environmental contamination with ease! G1 is built on the same nano-active technology as the innovative C1 Crystal Lacquer and some of the other popular Gtechniq coatings. This coating will bond with the glass to create a slick protective barrier from the harmful elements. One coat on your windshield will typically offer up to 30,000 miles of water, dirt, ice, and contaminant repellency. This is highly beneficial as you will have significantly improved visibility, less time spent removing ice, and an easy to clean surface for years to come! Apply G1 to your windshield and any other glass surfaces you may have. This glass coating also comes with the G2 Residue Remover to help remove the reside left over after you apply the G1. Protect your glass surfaces with the amazing Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass!

Application Information

  • Do not dilute
  • Apply at a temperature above 40 degrees F and not in direct sunlight
  • If applying indoors ensure that there is adequate ventilation
  • Ensure that the surface to be coated is entirely free from fats/oils
  • Use the application pad to wipe G1 onto the surface. For complete and thorough coverage: Apply a total of three coats on windshield and a single coat on side and rear windows: first apply two coats on the windscreen, one immediately after the other, then apply G1 to the side and rear windows, and end with third coat to the winds
  • Allow the third coat to dry for 15 minutes. Note: only buff off the residue once, after the third coat has dried for 15 minutes
  • Once dried use a lint free cloth to apply the residue remover and then buff using a cotton towel type cloth (cotton is preferable to microfiber as the densely packed fibers of the microfiber cloth may remove too much of the partially cured coating from the surface) until all residue has been removed. A 50/50 IPA mixture can also be used to remove the residue. Spray IPA mixture on to a cloth and buff off the residue
  • Buff areas no bigger than a quarter of a windshield or half a side window at a time
  • On application, thoroughly clean wiper blades with IPA or window cleaner or if they are towards the end of their life cycle, replace since heavily worn or soiled blades can judder on the surface

I just put it on yesterday so I haven't seen any rain to comment on it effectiveness yet but I can say that this stuff is a pain in the you know what to remove. You can to scrub your window hard with a microfiber to remove it, even after using the residue removal stuff.

Great product. Easy application, and works great in the rain. Driving at night in heavy rain, never used the wipers until we came to a stop. The only downfall is it's very hard to remove. I'm hoping it was my error in my first application and can improve the second go around. If this really lasts the 30k mile boast then it's very much a must have product.

I will recommend G1/G2 with only one caveat. In terms of application, G1 goes on very easily and is applied very much like all Gtechniq products: a few dabs on to a gauze pad, which is then applied directly on to the surface of the glass. The residue is allowed to haze over and then the product is removed with G2. In my experience, removal of G1 residue has been challenging at times either because too much G1 was applied or there was not enough G2. I am told that G1 residue can be removed with IPA, however. This is one drawback of the product. In terms of how G1 functions, it functions very well. I have had G1 on all my windows for over 1 year, and the beading and sheeting is still exceptional. After 1 year it is not as fantastic as it was after first application, but I find that around 30 mph, the water starts to blow off the windshield and what's left is easily removed by the wipers. I have noticed that after a year I am starting to see some vibration/skipping of the wiper blades that is helped by using some windshield washing fluid to lubricate the window. This may be an indication that it is time to reapply. Nevertheless, I would use this product again as I have found it to be very good and it stood the test of a very terrible Chicago winter (2013-2014).
