    Re: New Gyeon Products

    Well, I did use the Gyeon Bathe for the first time this evening and now hear this....STUFF IS AWESOME, PERIOD!

    Now I know this isn't the version being talked about here but I just wanted to pass long my great experience with it this evening. I started with 1 ounce in my Worx hydroshot soap dispenser and topped it with water. I then began to soap the car down and it foamed up...a lot, more than any other soap I've ever used in this machine. I then added 1 ounce in about 2.5 gallons of water and made suds and suds and suds till they went to the top of the bucket, once again, nothing I've used since getting the Worx machine has sudded up like this (Griot 's Brilliant Shine/Megs Mirror Brite/Rain X).

    Because my car is coated and will be for the foreseeable future, I'm sticking with soaps that leave nothing behind, my car actually looked cleaner tonight!

    Sneak Peak: What’s New for Gyeon Quartz in 2018

    by Jeff McEachran

    2017 has been an incredibly busy year for the entire Gyeon Quartz Team globally. I wanted to give you guys a rundown of what’s been happening as well as an introduction to the new products being offered for 2018 so you know what’s new, what it means, and where to use it. A few points of progress from GYEON in 2017:


    • We have grown distribution in to 19 new countries, bringing the total to 71 individual country distributors.
    • We have added 121 Certified Detailers globally, bringing the total to 279 world wide.
    • The Gyeon Quartz websites have been completely redesigned and translated in to their country specific languages.
    • Each Gyeon product’s User Manual has been updated and improved.
    • The Sprayers for the 100 ml bottles have been replaced and improved (no more leaky Cure 100 ml and FabricCoat 100 ml!)
    • There are new Dispenser Pumps for the full Shampoo Range (We’ll talk about these in the Q2M Bathe Essence How To write up).
    • The Q2 Coating Bottles have been completely redesigned with a frost finish and no more labels, but the info printed directly on the bottles.
    • New Packaging, Products and Structure for the entire Q2 Product Range.

    So lets get to it!
    The most applicable news will be the New Products for 2018 and their structure. Gyeon has split the Q2 Coating offering in to 3 very distinct categories:

    1. Enthusiast
    2. Professional
    3. Certified Detailer


    For this article we will discuss the Enthusiast and Professional categories and how to know which one is right for you.

    Enthusiast

    The Enthusiast category will consist of Q2 CanCoat, of which we are already familiar, and the all new Q2 One. This category is designed specifically for the person who is comfortable installing a wax or sealant, is interested in coating technology, however has not yet made the leap in to installing a coating on their vehicle. Both products in the Enthusiast category are designed to be installed in a single layer. Ease of installation is a major goal. These 2 coatings are very easy to work with, without long or tricky flash times. Simply apply and remove. You can get the durability, protection, and looks of a coating with the ease of install of a wax or sealant.

    Q2 CanCoat is a fantastic, versatile, and easy to use product. The value is hard to beat for 200ml of a true SiO2 Coating that can be used on any exterior surface of the car.

    Q2 One is a more substantial coating. It applies thick on to the surface, is easily removed, and delivers a ton of gloss and protection. Q2 One is of a higher concentration of SiO2 content than Q2 CanCoat to deliver a bit more durability and protection. I would put the two equal in terms of very high gloss and water beading.

    Professional

    The Professional Category will consist of Q2 Pure, Q2 Mohs, and Q2 SYNCRO. This category is designed for the experienced and skilled coating installer who is comfortable applying a long term, multi year coating, in multiple layers.

    Lets start with a quick backstory on Q2 Pure and why Q2 Prime has left the offering. Q2 Prime was one of my favorite coatings. It is the very first coating I ever touched from GYEON and is still going strong on my wife’s 2015 Jetta 2+ years later. The issue we ran in to with the user experience of Q2 Prime was this. Because of it’s price point (cheaper than Q2 Mohs) and because it was designed to be installed in a single layer (where Q2 Mohs is designed in 2 layers), it was looked at as the “entry level” coating in the Gyeon line up. This had people new to the coating world reach for it as the easy go to from GYEON, and it really isn’t. Q2 Prime was a highly concentrated SiO2 based coating that applied in a thick layer, that if it was your very first coating ever could be a bit difficult to install. We didn’t feel like we were sending the right message with Q2 Prime and did not want to deliver a poor first experience with the GYEON line when people reached for it. Enter Q2 Pure:

    Q2 Pure is a completely redesigned, pure and highly concentrated SiO2 based coating. It is easier to install than Q2 Prime. It performs very well against water spots. It is designed to be installed in a single layer, however it can be layered for added durability. It has a very distinct, warm, and deep gloss. If you like the dramatic “candy” bend of light from a coating, then this is the one for you. It will sit at the same skill level and price point as Q2 Mohs.

    Q2 Mohs is the longstanding workhorse of the GYEON Quartz line up. It is an extremely easy to use PHPS based coating that uses a very high quality mix of solvents and silazanes. Q2 Mohs is very capable in terms of chemical and UV protection. The carrier solvents have been slightly tweaked for 2018 to make the install even easier. The rest of the coatings construction and core components have stayed the same. Where Q2 Mohs really is a breakthrough is the low shrink rate once fully cured. This leaves a thick layer of protection over the paint, which is awesome as a stand alone coating, or can be topped with Booster, CanCoat ……..or Skin as a part of the all new Syncro system.

    Q2 Syncro is a brand new coating from GYEON using 2 layers of Q2 Mohs as the base coating to be topped with the all new Skin. Syncro is the first 2 part coating system with separate base coat/top coat chemistry available to all Detailers. SKIN is a silicone based top coat designed for maximum slickness. It builds up a true additional layer of coating. It is fully chemical resistant. It is very easy to apply. Q2 Syncro is the top tier coating available to all Detailers with excellent looks and performance.

    We also have a few additions to the Q2M Line:

    Q2M Bathe Essence

    I think the new Bathe Essence is the most anticipated product in the Q2M category. Yes, we were all thinking a 4L denomination of Bathe would land. GYEON chose instead to concentrate Bathe in to an extremely powerful shampoo that can be easily used in a 4 gal wash bucket through the dispenser pump to deliver stout cleaning power over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again. I am very impressed with Bathe Essence.

    Q2M Compound+
    This product came in to existence after the markets response to Q2M Compound not having quite enough bite. Q2M Compound+ solves that problem nicely. It is still water based, low dusting, silicon free, with no fillers. It is a very honest polish that performs equally well with a DA or Rotary.

    Q2M Cure Matte 400ml
    If you have tried the Q2 Matte coating, you know it included a 100 ml bottle of Cure Matte. This is a similar maintenance spray as the traditional Q2M Cure, however it will not add gloss to your matte or satin finish. We received a very high demand for Cure Matte in a 400 ml size as a stand alone product and here it is. So if you want to protect your matte or sating finish without stepping all the way in to a coating this is the answer.



    That is the meat of the changes for 2018! I will have full How To Articles up for these shortly so you can really dive in to the process. Enjoy and thank you for reading!!

    Re: New Gyeon Products

    Gyeon one had me intrigued. If it’s as easy to apply as a wax and has longer durability than cancoat. That sounds like a winner. Alternatively still considering cancoat for next years fall winter protection.

    CanCoat looks like a breeze to apply but I have so many toppers for my coating now that I don't know if I can pull the trigger on yet another one, although my new favorite company doesn't offer a similar product...yet.

    Roger,

    Can Coat IS easy to apply. Very easy, indeed.

    CanCoat is pretty good. Easy to apply and decent longevity.
