    Cquartz total cure time- notice !

    Hi Guys

    since im not writing anymore in DB forum , i want to inform this here
    some vicious rumors try to say that cquartz has long curing time until its fully dry , and try to bash the cquartz coat.
    i want to make something clear about it .:

    after 1 hour you have finished wiping the coat its ready to go !! no need to wait longer , you can drive in the rain without any problems , we only say dont soap wash the car for 7 days(and still its precaution step) , during first days rinsing the car with water is OK , it doesnt mean its not cure, we only want to make sure the alkaline detergent used in shampoos wont affect the hydrophobic property.
    if customer want to wash the car after 1 hour(3 hours in winter) he will only need to use water for the first days.


    i hope this clear things up.!

    Thanks Avi,

    Some customers act like they can't wait 7 days to wash without shampoo, for them, 1 hour after final wipe, can I apply Reload to protect the hydrophobic property in case they decide to wash before 7 days?

    Thank You

    Yes ofcourse!!
    reload after 1 hour cquartz will help with acid rain , or harsh water marks.

    Thanks Avi! I was thinking of applying it to my step-father's new Rav4.

    Re: Cquartz total cure time- notice !

    I Cquartz-ed my android device over the weekend and it been 36 Hrs and I haven't touched it since then!

    Cuz I will be touching it often, I want to ensure everything is set before I start operating it!

    Full cure time is 48hrs on cquartz website. Since touchscreen application was never intended as a use, after how long can I operate my touchscreen device again?(odd question lol I know )

    Reason I tried this is, that I needed a test subject before proceeding to do my car! And CQ went on and came off like a breeze!!! :D
    I had prepared the gorilla glass screen with multiple hits of sonax glass cleaner and 50/50 IPA/water, before going forward with the coating!

    The screen seems shinier and more glossy now lol! :D

    Re: Cquartz total cure time- notice !

    Not cured yet! Still 6 hrs remaining!

    but I can already notice the great qualities!! Touch sensitivity is unaffected, which is great! Gloss and reflections are amazing!!

    Any pointers as to when can I put a 2nd coat on there?
