Gloss
CQuartz Finest Reserve has developed a reputation among professionals as the richest, deepest, highest gloss coating available. It is important to note that proper depth and gloss is achieved with proper correction and polishing by an experience detailer with a passion for what they do. However after they have invested countless hours in their craft, it is only fitting to both protect their work long term and add that extra rich depth of the Finest coating available.

 

Dust and dirt resistance:
Anybody that has just waxed their car will tell you – within a couple hours they can see the dust building up on it and after a drive that dust is still there. It doesn’t blow off and it does accumulate on the carnauba wax layer. Polymer sealants are a little better and stay cleaner than waxes however they too allow dirt and dust to stick to them. Compared to wax, dust and dirt retention is lowered up to 90% with CQuartz Finest Reserve. Of course some will gather and collect over time but you will enjoy the beauty of your vehicle between washes when protected by Finest Reserve where as with other products the paint will look dirty faster.

 

Protection from rail, brake dust, and environmental contaminants:
In the air around us and on the motorways, all sorts of contaminants attack your paint. Iron particles coming off the brakes of other vehicles can lodge into your paint and allow moisture to penetrate around them. Over time the oxidation process from moisture and sun break down around these iron particles and eat microscopic holes into your paint. CQ Finest Reserve puts an end to this with a thick barrier that does not allow these contaminants to reach the paint surface and are removed much more easily.

 

Protection from bugs:They come in all shapes and sizes. Many are highly acidic and can wreak havoc on your paint! They impact the front of your vehicle at high speed and as they impact the acidic contents spills out onto your paint. Within minutes it can eat through a layer of traditional wax before it dries and bonds hard to the surface in the heat of the sun. If the bug is highly acidic it will begin the process of etching into your clearcoat in a matter of hours. Each time it is exposed to moisture more acids are released and eventually you have permanent danbsp to your paint.

With 3µm of CQuartz Finest between the bugs and your paint they can no longer cause permanent danbsp to your paint, the coating is resistant to acids and its rare any mark will be left on the coating with reasonable washing schedules. In the rare case a bug does leave something behind you can be rest assured your paint is still safe beneath the coating.

 

Protection from bird droppings:
The most dangerous enemy your paint will likely see in its life is bird droppings. They can vary in level of toxicity but it is well known by professionals that a bird dropping can dissolve wax on contact, eat deep into paint, and leave an etching within minutes. With CQuartz Finest Reserve you have a barrier which resists bird droppings and allows you time to discover and remove them.. It is still recommended you remove bird droppings as quickly as possible to stop them damaging the Cquartz Finest Reserve coating.

 

Easier maintenance:
As we touched on previously: dust, dirt, and contaminants do not bond to your CQuartz Finest Reserve barrier in the way they do to paint with only a coat of wax or sealant applied. Any dirt or dust that does attach to the coating is MUCH more easily removed upon the next wash without having to scrub or clay the vehicle. CQuartz Finest Reserve offers dirt and water shedding abilities beyond that of any other product available with a sliding angle of just 10 degrees providing the self-cleaning affect provided by CQuartz Finest Reserve, most dirt slides right off during a wash.

 

Hydrophobic:
One of the most important features in keeping your vehicle clean is the ability of the protective layer to release water. Finest features a low sliding angle which allows water drops to release easily keeping your car cleaner for longer..

 

Finest Service:
Your Finest Authorised Detailer uses only top tier products on your vehicle. They start with our specifically designed shampoo followed by an extremely detailed 2-3 step decontamination process to remove all bonded contaminants from above and beneath the surface of the paint.

Following the “decon” process the paint is further analyzed and the best combinations of high tech pads and polishes are tested to produce the highest gloss possible. This may include polishing the entire vehicle up to five times to reach this level.

After the paint is perfected all the polishing oils are stripped from the vehicle with the use of CarPro Eraser. This step is essential so that CQ Finest Reserve will fully bond with the paint. When the paint is determined to be 100% oil free, 2 layers of CQ Finest Reserve are applied and dried with specialist short wave infrared drying lamps.

Additional services including coating of interior, glass, convertible top, plastic trim, brightwork, and wheel coating are also offered by our installers. You can find more details above under “Upgrades”.

CarPro Finest Installers make up a global network of professionals who proudly offer a warranty on our flagship coating. This warranty states that Finest Reserve will not bubble, yellow, peel, oxidize, or lose more than 20% gloss over 3 years.

 

Swirl Resistance:
Waxes and sealants offer little to no swirl resistance. When you wash, dry, or touch your paint at any time you have the potential to scratch the surface. The scratches we are talking about here are very fine and referred to as “swirls” but as they build up the level of gloss you see as reflections and depth to your paint withers. These swirls refract light away from your eyes which is the cause of a dulled appearance to your paint.

CQuartz Finest Reserve has been proven to resist these fine swirls when properly maintained and cared for. It should be noted that no coating is swirl proof and it is important to use only high quality wash mitts and drying towels or a warm air blower.

We highly recommend allowing your Authorised Finest Installer to either maintain your vehicle or train you in proper wash techniques and provide access for purchase of the incredibly soft and plush CarPro Merino Wool Wash Mitt.

Unlike other coatings, Finest Reserve cannot be purchased on the open market and is available exclusively via our tier one CarPro approved detailers who have been hand selected to ensure you recieve only the highest quality service available.

C.Quartz Finest Reserve MUST be cured under the correct infared lighting systems… only avaliable through Tier1 Professional Detailers.

What is detailing?

Detailing is the precise renovation and protection of the various surfaces of a vehicle.
You can go to your local hand carwash, and pay around £5 to have your car cleaned, Be warned, most of these cheap car washes use harmful and corrosive products like traffic film remover to pre wash your car, this will strip any protection on the car. Dealer applied sealants can be stripped in roughly 3 washes. They also tend to use one sponge to clean the whole car, and not rinsing their sponge during the wash process either, which inflicts swirl marks, scratches and further damage to your paint work.

Detailing uses a much softer approach, using much milder wax and sealant friendly products, 2 buckets to wash, one with the suds, and one for rinsing the wash mitt, An assortment of cloths to dry, polish and buff you vehicles paint, and proven products to protect your vehicle, which in turn, will help increasing its retail value.

Is Detailing the same as Valeting?

No, it is very different. A valeter is someone who provides a service to a car owner and will clean the car so that all visible grime is removed from most areas. Some stages of the Detailers process are similar in part, but far different in terms of the level of attention paid to detail and the products and equipment used. Visibly clean is where valeting ends and detailing takes over. Sadly, as Detailing is becoming more popular there are a lot of new companies setting up and offering very poor levels of service.

The next time you wash your vehicle or have it washed take a look at your car a little closer – scrutinise the finish under bright direct sunlight or under the harsh lighting of a petrol station. Feel the paint place your fingers in a plastic sandwich bag or the cellophane from a ciggy packet and gently rub your fingers over the paintwork, what can you feel? The next time you are in a car showroom look closely at the paintwork as the bright lights shine onto it. What do you see?

What is paint correction?

Machine polishing, also known as “paint correction” of car paint finishes is the process that will remove most paint imperfections like Swirl Marks, Hazing, Surface Scratches and Faded paint as well as poor machine polishing marks called holograming and buffer trails. The process of paint correction is not for the faint hearted, there is no right or wrong way to doing it but to achieve the best results safely then experience and knowledge is critical. Using a selection of Polishing Machine’s with different cutting compounds and different graded polishing pads at speeds up to 2000rpm. This can be a risky process in the wrong hands as this could cause serious damage to your paint finish as the heat generated in this process can burn paint and plastics in seconds.

Then once this has been done a full selection of Acrylic, Polymer Sealants or Carnauba Waxes can be applied to your paint to protect and to leave you with that Ultimate Shine.

Unique Details New Car Preparation and Protection Detail is a service designed for new cars. We class a new car as new with less than 500 miles on the clock, if you vehicle has exceeded this mileage then additional charges could apply.

What Is Car Paint Correction?

Also known as swirl mark removal or machine polishing, paintwork correction is the reduction or removal of marks in the top layer of paint to produce a more refined finish.

Paint correction can involve either the hand or machine application of varying grades of cleanser, polish or compound. The majority of work is usually done with rotary machine polishers to get the best level of correction.

Good paint correction requires a high degree of skill and concentration, but done properly, it really can transform the look of a car by dealing with (amongst other things);poor washing techniques (local hand car washes) hard water marks, etching caused by bird muck or fly squash, swirl marks, scratches and fading.

Done professionally, paint correction is entirely safe and will not cause any issues for your paint.

WET SANDING

The reason most people have there cars wet sanded is to remove orange peel in the clear coat,wet sanding is Extremely time consuming and not for the faint hearted in the wrong hands and without the right knowledge and equipment it spells disaster.

What is Orange Peel ?

Due to new paint technologies, many new vehicles can suffer from orange peel in the paint finish, Orange peel is the name given to a slightly rippled effect on the paint works surface that resembles the peel on an orange . When a vehicle is sprayed at the factory, the build up of multiple wet layers of paint combined with the spray guns pushing out a lot of air, cause the airstream to leave a visible rippled effect finish.Since water based paints have been used more and more new cars suffer from orange peel in the paint

Most paintwork corrections can be made with a rotary polisher but in the case of heavy orange peel in the clear coat its not always achievable so this is why we wet sand, wet sanding done correctly takes many stages of sanding before the paint is ready for machine polishing starting with 2000grit through to 4000grit sand paper you can and will achieve a flawless show car finish with a crystal clear reflections after the machine polishing is completed.

Before wet sanding can commence PDG reading are taken on each and every panel to make sure there is enough clear coat to safely wet sand the vehicle this process of taking PDG readings is undertaken through the sanding opperation,Most cars have an average of between 100 – 140 microns,removing between 7-10 microns will remove most blemishes, Orange peel, swirl marks, mild scratches, bird stains etc.
