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

Fantastic stuff. This is the second coating I've tried. I put CQuartz UK on my personal vehicle last year - the gloss was great, as well as the hydrophobic properties, but after winter it seemed gone. I just applied EXO V3 to a customer's vehicle based on all the great reviews, and I absolutely love the product. I was able to get two coats on the paint AND glass of a GTI with half the bottle, and I purposely went heavier on the second coat! The application is very easy, although tedious (I like to be as precise as possible). I used CarPro's CQuartz applicator and a suede cloth for application based on other suggestions, and I'm glad I did - I feel I can be much more precise than with the round applicator they provide, but that's just me. After it cured, I did the water test, and wow! After pouring a gallon of water down the hood, I was able to count 9 beads that remained on the hood itself. When the customer left, it was raining, and it had VERY tight, perfect beads. Can't wait to see how it holds up. New GTechniq fan!

I have used many sealants..and every brand of wax. Several coatings. most recently Opti-Gloss.
I have to say that EXO v3 is the most glossy product I have ever used. Applied to a Black Chevy Silverado , crew cab. I used about 40ml. I could have been more sparingly with the product, but it helped me with the flash time with a heavier coat. EXO left a incredible thick gloss coat, I could not help myself by staring at it, from different angles. I used EXO over a 4 month old application of Opti-Gloss. It gave a very dramatic effect. I am sure it only multiplied the protection. Even if you have a existing coating---EXO provides a great long term topper.
