How to Use Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer Spray
To begin with, you need to wash your car. For a complete step-by-step guide on how to safely wash your car, check out our PRO Detailer in-depth guide.
Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer is a SiO2 infused Quick Detail Spray and Last Stage Protection (LSP) product. You apply it to your vehicle, then buff off to a high shine with a microfiber towel.
Before using the Gyeon SiO2 Detail spray, gently shake the bottle to mix the chemicals. Quick Detailers which contain SiO2 can suffer from chemical separation if left to stand for a period of time. Mixing the chemicals will help you to achieve the best results when using the product.
Best quick detailer for ceramic coated cars
Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer is designed to be one of the best quick detailers for ceramic coated cars. It can be used on wet or dry paintwork, of both ceramic coated or uncoated cars.
If you follow our step-by-step guide on how to safely wash your car, you have a couple of different options on how to use this Ceramic Detailer spray.
To use Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer as a drying aid, complete the safe wash process through step 7. Then apply a couple of sprays of Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer and dry each panel with a microfiber drying towel. The Ceramic Detailer will serve two functions if used in this way.
Firstly it will add extra lubricity as you dry the paintwork. This helps to minimise swirls and light, micro-marring induced from towel drying. Secondly, it will add some ceramic protection as well as reducing the chances of water spots being left behind.
Finally, dry your vehicle as normal and apply tire dressing if required.
To use Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer more like a typical Quick Detailer, complete the safe wash process through step 8, then apply a couple of sprays of Gyeon Q²M CeramicDetailer directly onto a clean, damp microfiber cloth, folded into four.
Working one panel at a time, gently and carefully spread the product across the entire panel using the microfiber. Flip the towel to a dry side, or use a fresh, dry microfiber towel, to buff the product to a high shine.
Ease of Application of Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer
Whether you’re using Gyeon Ceramic Detailer as a drying aid or regular QD, its super easy to apply to any vehicle. Some ceramic detail sprays can be ‘grabby’ when applying whilst others can streak or be difficult to buff off. We have noticed no such issues with Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer. It is slick to apply and we’ve seen no streaking issues, despite applying it on warm body panels in less than ideal conditions.
We always advise working one panel at a time, misting two or three sprays onto a clean, damp microfiber towel or spraying directly onto a cool, clean body panel. Spread the product evenly over the panel with the damp microfiber, then flip the towel to a dry side, or use a fresh towel, then buff to remove excess product. It’s that simple!
As the Gyeon Ceramic Detail Spray contains an SiO2 component, water behaviour on the treated panel will immediately change, with treated surfaces becoming more hydrophobic. Water will be repelled from the panel and the little that remains will bead dramatically, making subsequent drying with a towel or warm air car dryer, a really quick and easy job.
Benefits of Using Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer Spray
Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer instantly boosts hydrophobicity adding a noticeable level of additional gloss to your paintwork and a high level of protection to your trim and glass.
In terms of the amount of gloss the product adds, aside from being noticeable, it is also measurable, with the aid of a specialist Goniophotometer, and ranks in the top ten when compared to rival products in its class. Additionally, Ceramic Detailer adds slickness to the touch – once fully dry, gently run the back of your clean, un-gloved hand across the treated paintwork to feel the improvement in the surface gloss and slickness.
The main benefit of this Ceramic Detailer from Gyeon is its ease of use and versatility. You can use Gyeon Ceramic Detailer as a drying aid. Following our ‘How-To’ application guide above, apply Ceramic Detailer after your regular wash routine. It will repel water, leave gloss and help to dry your vehicle faster as there will be less water on the paintwork to towel off.
It’s a great product to help maintain, boost or top-up any existing ceramic coating. You can use Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer on top of ceramic coatings and it’s perfectly paired with any of Gyeon’s own ceramic coating products, as well as those ceramic coatings offered by rival brands.
How Long Does Gyeon CeramicDetailer Last?
Gyeon Q2M Ceramic Detailer is a durable SiO2 detail spray. It’s capable of withstanding multiple wash cycles over a number of weeks. We’ve found that Gyeon Ceramic Detailer can boost gloss and hydrophobicity for up to 6 weeks. Having tested this product on a number of vehicles over an extended period of time, we would suggest that this durability claim is accurate. It should be noted that the durability of any LSP product can vary, so your mileage may vary.
Value for Money of Gyeon Ceramic Detailer
Gyeon Q²M Ceramic Detailer spray is good value for money. The cost of application (based on 40-50ml of product) of around $1.40 per application. It is available in both 400ml and 1000ml trigger spray bottles.
Gyeon Detailer Packaging
The Gyeon brand offers some of the best packaging and labelling in the car detailing business. Their unique bottle design is as instantly recognisable as the original Coca-Cola bottle.
The trigger sprays are high quality, offering ‘spray/stream’ and ‘off’ settings. They offer a good draw, consistent spray output and very little ‘spitting’ at the start and finish of the trigger spray cycle.
Both sizes of trigger spray bottles sit comfortably in the hand. The triggers themselves require just the right amount of pressure to achieve a consistent spray pattern during use.
Considering its ease of use, versatility and overall performance, PRO Detailer Tips rates this Gyeon product very highly. It’s been a go-to ceramic booster for our own ceramic coated vehicles. There’s always a bottle the shelf in our garage!
This ceramic quick detailer is perfect to use on ceramic coatings and is one of the best SiO2 quick detailers that we’ve tested.
It’s versatile, effective used on wet or dry panels and we love the slickness and shine it leaves behind.
