Professional Detailer Reviews

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!

- Product Review: CarPro Cquartz UK Edition by Zach McGovern

Cquartz UK is a product that I have grown to love over the past year or so. This budget friendly coating provides an excellent layer of protection, while also enhancing gloss and producing an amazing final touch to your perfectly polished vehicle. In this article, I will walk you through the basic application steps for the Cquartz UK Edition Ceramic Paint Coating.

This coating was super easy to apply. I did a thorough wash, decontamination, one step polish, and used CarPro Eraser to remove any oils left behind. Prep is the key to any coatings, and with proper prep CQUK 3.0 was a dream to apply. Flashed very quickly, easy to remove, and the gloss was insane. It's not the slickest product but the paint feels very smooth, the slickness can be easily increased with a topper like P&S Beadmaker. My only tip is to pull the car out into the sun when done applying, you will probably find spots that you missed from being in a garage.

I had use multiple brands of ceramic coating thru out many of years and somehow I always come back to carpro cquartz u.k. 3.0
Very easy to work with, especially it's appliable in wide range of temperatures, flash time depends on the weather but it buffs off with ease.

Super easy to apply and remove! I wish the kit had come with a bottle of carpro reload but oh well. This was my first time coating a vehicle and as I said it was super easy. The shine was amazing!

Pros:
Easy of use
Shine

Cons:
Kit did not come with a bottle of reload

Absolutely would & will buy again! I read above that 91% said they would & couldn't believe it until I read the reviews, it doesn't have to leave the vehicle slick to be a good thing, it's typically tacky until it cures and/or after the Reload is applied, I have had 0 issues out of it on any installation, I read a review not impressed with the gloss as well, I assume some aren't perfecting their paint before applying which I don't understand, why protect scratches/blemishes, yes it has a few steps & time consuming to install which is another reason I would want my paint & my clients paint corrected to its highest scratch free luster before applying...great stuff!!

One of the best consumer grade coatings on the market. I have applied many of the consumer coatings from the other big brands on my own vehicles and customer vehicles. UK 3.0 has better durability(even through harsh Ohio winters), gloss, and self cleaning characteristics than I've seen out of the other brands. Application isn't as easy as some, but take your time and the rewards are greater especially long term.

Applied this to my wife's daily driver, a '17 glacier white Nissan Rogue. Went on very, very easily and was easy to buff out. Applied two coats plus Reload and it came out great. Application and removal of the transfer solution was much easier than some other coatings that I've used, and was an absolute breeze. The paint on this car isn't a color that will showcase the added gloss of this coating, but it has a noticeable pop to it. Applying CQUK 3.0 is more about protection on this car (not a garaged vehicle), and ease of cleaning than anything else, but the difference between coated and uncoated is noticeable.

Got it on just in time for a road trip to the northeast for the holidays and it performed very well on wet/dirty roads. A basic spray bottle of warm water was able to remove a lot of road grime off the paint with ease. Excellent hydrophobicity and beading, as expected, through multiple days of heavy rain and grimy roads. Very happy with the initial results.

I have used CQUK 2.0 and now 3.0. Both are great. CQUK 3.0 has performed very well on my personal car and I would use it again and do recommend it to others. I do like that 3.0 is less tacky than the previous formula as well as being much more user friendly.

I purchased Cquartz to have applied to my two cars that had previously been detailed with Cquartz almost a year and a half ago. I didn't not apply the Cquartz myself. After having Cquartz applied initially I periodically applied Car Pro Reload myself to help maintain and further protect the finish. The Reload was very easy to apply and remove. I was impressed with the durability of the UK and will try doing it myself the next time.

I found that if you put it on a bit thicker than the description or recommendations it is easier to work and less likely to fog. By a little thicker I mean that a 30ml bottle will do 2 cars not 3.

This is my first time applying a ceramic coating. I wanted to see what all the buzz is about.

My verdict on the CQuartz UK coating is that I am not too impressed. It provides a good level of gloss, but one that looks thinner and less warm than a good synthetic sealant like my favorite, Jescar Power Lock, and not close to the shine provided by an expensive natural carnauba. For the price of this coating, I would expect it to provide stunning gloss and depth, as well as make me more handsome. It's too early to tell what the longevity is of course, but even if it lasts the claimed 12 months, I'm not convinced it's worth the cost and effort versus the Jescar Power Lock or other good sealant applied every six months.

Another thing I'm not impressed with is the overall feel of this coating. It feels slightly gummy or tacky when rubbed with the fingers. Any good sealant or wax should make the paint feel like clean glass, with absolute smoothness and no drag on the skin, as though it was lubricated. The coating is very smooth, but it doesn't have that lubricated feeling. I followed the instructions to the letter, in a garage with low relative humidity outside, so I'm not sure if I did anything wrong, but if the application is so finicky then that is a mark against it. I prefer products that produce the expected results with a wider margin of application.

One of my favorite coating's to date! Easy to apply if you do it properly. Makes maintaining your car an absolute breeze and is actually very fun to wash cars afterwards, the beading properties are insane! Even if the car is covered in dirt and dust the gloss this coating produces makes the car look clean with any color.

Since this was the first time I have applied a coating to a car, I was apprehensive and excited at the same time; so I made sure that I followed all of the steps that were necessary to ensure the proper bonding of coating to paint. The prep work is 95% of the process. I used CarPro Essence as my last step after removing swirls and imperfections. I think if the prep work is good the coating will adhere and bond flawlessly. I didn't experience any problems with marring or streaking with either of the two cars I applied this coating to (maybe I was fortunate), but both cars came out beautifully. This is an outstanding product.

First application lasted about 9 months. I had half a bottle left from last April and it was in the expiration date so I applied again. this time i used the full Carpro lineup. Wash, clay, Trix, Meguiars microfiber polish, wash, Eraser. Application and removal was much easier. You need clean paint for this to work. I have a dark gray car and it's been three weeks and three times in the rain and still don't need to wash.

Maybe it is the heat and humidity in the south, but applied today in the garage and found this product is not the easiest to use. Work time was very short and it frequently left areas that were difficult to remove. I worked in 2x2 foot panels on my 911 which is Platinum silver metallic and found that it was very difficult to see when the product flashed. Have used Opti Gloss on two other vehicles with much success. Will have to wait to see if the durability and hydrophobic properties are as previously described to decide if I would buy again.

Hands down,the easiest ceramic coating I've tried to date . Just makes sure your prep work is to the t and you'll be okay! Other than that,I would definitely buy again!!! My trucks never been so hydrophobic. A little over 30 mph after rain practically dries itself off! Very satisfied

It is an excellent product. One of the best protection available , if not the best. I am using it for a few years now, with excellent results... It's like taking a snapshot in time of your paint condition. You need to keep topping up with Reload from time to time...

So far I'm very happy with the results of this product. It's helped me make a ton of money in my business and my customers are thrilled with the results each time. So far no complaints. Do not apply it in direct sunlight and it can be difficult to remove in a humid non ventilated garage or warehouse. I'd recommend enthusiasts looking to shine and protect their prized possessions, and to detailing professionals looking to add serious revenue to their business!

Remove this as soon as it flashes. wipe a finger and if it removes then immediately remove. I made the mistake of leaving it on two doors and stopped to take a phone call. It was extremely difficult to remove. But now that it's on. best sealant I have ever used. slick but not oily. water beads look like little globes.

I applied two coats to my Mustang GT this weekend, and I have to say, the gloss is impressive. The application process appears to be straight forward, but it is definitely not the easiest thing to apply. It also is not very slick after curing down. It is hard and very glossy, just not slick. Durability should be great judging from reviews, and gloss is awesome, just don't see it being something I would use on clients' cars.

Pros of this cquk, id say has to be the shine as its intense and i was very impressed. Obviously protection would come in 2nd place. Cons of this, i would have to say is application. My experience using this product wasn't great but it was my first time installing this particular coating on my personal car. As i have used others i noticed that the flash time was quick for me, i also noticed i did not have enough applicators as they also quickly hardened. My results were good but could of been better. If your gonna go with this coating i would recommend extra applicators and work one panel at a time. If you have a friend handy it helps cause you will find your self opening and trying to close the bottle finding a safe place to place it while holding an applicator and a towel at the same time. All in all its a great coating i left a few highspots on my black subaru sti but that easily came off with a hand polish and orange pad and some marring on one door from a hardened applicator but i will address that issue later. Ive learned from this application and it will make future applications easier and hope it helps others who read this too.

I'm not sold on this, and I really wanted to be. I applied according to the directions, in an air conditioned garage. I waited 3 minutes before wiping the panels down and it appeared I was just smearing the product. I waited 5 minutes, and it still didn't seem to have flashed yet. I gave it a little more time and it did better, but in the end, the car still has a few streaky areas that I'm not impressed with. I have previously used 22ple with no such issues, and had great results. I do really like how slippery the CQUK makes the paint feel, but again, 22ple left a nice slippery finish as well. The water beading is great, but for some reason it does seem to make the paint water spot more easily than with 22ple or other products I have used in the past. I'm going to apply it to another car to give it another chance, but at this point, I don't think it is an improvement over 22ple. I wouldn't use it on a customer's car if the blotchiness was a risk. I also went through a lot of the sueded microfibers with the wipe down process so before you apply it make sure you have plenty on hand for removal, and also several on hand for the application.

I am loving the ease of use on CQ in general. The U.K. edition is no different and applies just as easy, and the results are great. My most recent application was to a 2014 Corolla in pearl white. After minor polishing and application of CQUK you could not even look at the car in direct sunlight, it was THAT shiny! Amazing results and in my opinion, one of the easiest coatings to apply. I seriously believe that anyone could apply this coating after reading the instructions. I know some individuals freak out about the application process however there is nothing to freak out about! This is my go to choice for coatings going forth.

If they had a monthly "auto send" program, I'd sign up! CQUK is quite easy to work with (if you follow the directions to a "T".), gives phenomenal gloss, water beading, and protection. I've used a few different coatings and it's hands down my favorite. As with any coating, you've got to be careful during the application process. I found it's much easier w/two people (one to apply, one to follow behind buffing it clean). It's on my own car, and I won't hesitate for a second to recommend it to my clients!
