    Help pick two coatings

    Hello,

    I will be coating my brothers black grand caravan in a few weeks. I have been very happy with mckees and wolfgang coatings but want to try something else but canít decide what to use. Iím also thinking of doing a coating on each side of the car to compare different coatings. So I need some suggestions on what to get.

    Thanks

    CQuartz 3.0 should be one of them and maybe GTechniq.

    Re: Help pick two coatings

    Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Surface Coating, paint coating, nano glass paint coating

    or

    Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Paint Coating


    Use the first one if you want to coat paint, wheels, & glass. Or if you just need to coat paint, use the second one.

    What are you looking for? Durability? Ease of use?

    Hello,

    Is this the uk edition? I also see Cquartz. What is the difference between the two?

    Hello,

    I am looking for durability 18-24 months. I would prefer the a easier to apply coating but don’t mind something a little more difficult if it has good gloss. Since this is not my car I would like something that doesn’t need to be topped.

    CQUK is SiO2 and has the higher rating for hardness to increase durability. Cquartz TiO2 contains TiO2 for more refelectivity. This has more stain resistance and slicker than CQUK. Don't buy too much into the hardness rating.

    No coating needs to be topped. That is all personal preference.

    These are what I would I consider

    CQUK 3.0 - top performer for the price.
    CQ Tio2 - has hung side by side with CQUK 3.0 on my personal car for 19 months now
    Adams UV - I am in the process of testing it against other coatings but it leaves the surface slick.

    Runners up:
    Jade Quartz - A bit harder to initially wipe off but a nice slick feeling. Currently testing durability. This manufacturer blends the Adams UV coating and this has similarities to Adams other than no UV characteristic.
    Jade Ice - easier to wipe off and feels close to Jade quartz. Currently testing durability.

    Thank you,

    Your testing is very appreciated!! I hate to see what it cost you to buy all the coatings.

    IMO:
    You should definitely have one of your
    selections be a Coating from Optimum.
