    Car Pro

    Anyone tried Gliss by Car Pro? It's a top coat for Cquartz or any ceramic coating I would guess.

    Re: Car Pro

    It was just released through carpro so probably not many have used it.

    I recall someone mentioned that some lucky folks at SEMA received a sample of it.

    That's what I'm looking for..SEMA was over a few weeks ago. I have a sample and may use it this weekend on my horizontals. Been satisfied with Reload, but if Gliss is slicker and antistatic it may be a winner.

    Sounds like the equivalent of Gtechniq EXOv3 on top of C1 or CSL.

    It does have a better contact angle than Reload.

    Contact angle means sh$t if it doesn't last.

    Relax dude lol.

    It means less water spotting which is a con of coatings. Reload can water spot.

    You can read up on the FAQ's that I posted on the carpro forum directly from their facebook page.

    The Gliss - FAQ and more details

    Here are some FAQ and details about the Gliss, this is something we worked in the past year, many detailers asked us for a top coat, something that excels the ceramic coat which applied already. from smoothness to hydrophobic contact angle. a coat which resist better water spots and has better anti static effect. yet not to use organic oils or waxes , while yet to have longer slickness compare to oily waxes or siloxanes sealants,(we will post soon comparison video to show how its durable). it wasnt easy to do and took us time, we hope we succeed and made it well, GLISS can be used as stand alone coat as well, for quick application cars. application is super easy as you saw maybe how we demo here at Sema . full dry time is shorter as well , ( by IR is super fast too)
    SOME FAQ'S about Gliss :
    -What Gliss means? Gliss in Franch means very slick surface.
    -Is Gliss perform as sealant or a coat? its more a coat with much more durability against chemicals.
    -Can it be used on top of Reload , Essence, Essence Plus ? No since it will not bond well over the surface.
    -Can you use it on other coating? Probably yes , but we cant guarantee that, with our coatings , as Cquartz Cquartz UK , Cquartz Pro , and the Cquartz Finest Reserve it works perfect with higher contact angle hydrophobic.
    -Can you use it as stand alone coat ? Yes its very easy to use and will bond well on bare paint.
    -Do you need to use Eraser pre coat ? Only if the surface was waxed or sealed, will need to strip anything such as .
    -Can we use Cquartz on top of Gliss ? No since it made to be a topper rather than primer.
    -Can we use it over coated car which was done few months already ? Yes its even well recommended.
    -Does it get crystallize ?? No , not meant to add hardness as one of its targets was to help protection from water marks. highly sio2 base coats weak point is water spots marking, this is to help protecting from it as well.
    -Can we top the Gliss with Reload ? Yes but we dont see any reason why.
    -Does Gliss attract dust over the surface? Gliss use inorganic oils to produce slickness , together with Anti static additives it will attract much less dust than most ceramic coat or top coats.
    -How much the bottle contain and how many cars we can coat? 50ml with 2~3 average cars coating.
    - Can i use TarX on the Gliss ? yes to some extended time , will not remove the coat.
    - Durability ? we believe between 6 to 12 months , if well maintained using pH neutral shampoos.

    If any of you guys has more questions we'll be glad to answer.

    Re: Car Pro

    Given that EXO was exceptional and Booster was such a let down for me, I'm looking forward to trying Gliss out when it's available. Perfect complement to CQuartz if it can significantly boost the slickness while maintaining or improving the water behavior. Wish Gyeon had Skin available separately to easily compare against Gliss.
