Teaser: International Coating Battle

by Kenneth Tang

 

Will these new paint coatings finally kill the wax market once and for all?
Will these coatings actualize the ‘never wax your car again’ statement?

    Each has its own USP. I expect a surprising results from the three makers.

  3. 2 new contenders will be featured in the 5 way battle: G'zox Quartz 7 and Nanolex, watch this space!!!

    @222,
    For G'zox, they don't sell it to individuals and are very strict regarding this policy, so it is quite difficult for you to source it. One way posted by Orion from Detailing World is to purchase it from Yahoo! Japan.

    @Tim,
    Hey bro! Have you tried any of these? I'm curious about the end results too

    Waiting forward to your report, this should be very interesting!

    I'm just getting contact with the “nano-world” and got myself a coating from Sonax, made in Japan. Can't wait to try it.

    Hi, I see that you guys are trying out the Aquartz. Which version of Aquartz is it? The guy first sold Pompanazzi 880-X as Aquartz, now his Aquartz is basically same a Rionix titanium dioxide which sheets and does not bead? Why because he had problems with Pompanazzi got an official letter from korea saying not to deal with him direct.

    Just went to comment Aquartz.net now he has changed to Cquartz. Just FYI I think we should be aware of this Aquartz guy. First he sold Pompanazzi 880-x as aquartz, then change to rionix based stuff and sold it as aquartz+ (i think), then now CQuartz. This guy is just buying stuff and rebranding it as his own. If you surf the web long enough you can find where his stuff is from. What's next after Cquartz?????

    Hahaha, never wax again?? Yah in guai loh country where their environment is so clean yes lah. But never wax again in malaysia. Never. Unless these costing people specially develop a super kow coating for malaysia environment and road conditions, then may be got chance lah. When I was in australia I never washed my white honda civic for 6 months and its white as hell!! Where got such thing here one. Lucky if you can get 2 weeks. But good to try lah.
    guys you should do a test on white cars lah. I havn't found a coating yet which doesn't get stained and so terror that keeps my white car here in malaysia clean and black streaks free and stain free. My white cars is driven 180km each day for 5 days a week and I can tell you nothing lasts especially when it rains like hell and then it dries and bakes in the sun. Point is nothing beats constant waxing or sealing of your paint as nothing lasts more than 3 months here in malaysia. But excited to see your results.

    I m alfred from Singapore. My company is ArtDeshine. I m only company uses Dupont Hypercoat Pro 3k since 2008 glass coat or hybrid megapixel coating. Now I have the new poroduct in hand called echelon Zen xero glass coat or hybrid coat. Both of the glass coat contain flourine that allows water to repel instead of blead. so called hyro…. action.

    May be you keen to try out for me for free.

    Both product need not to after care every wash only need to maintain the glass coat by mild claying to smoothen the glass coat. I have 1000 customers and cars being applied for more than three years and recoat every year and shown result on durablility on gloss event more better.

      GZOX wins GTechniq, Aquartz was defeated early on.
