Gyeon Q² DuraBead is a state of the art quartz coating system that simultaneously protects and enhances the appearance of automotive paint. It achieves this through the use of two distinct products that are supplied as a set; Gyeon Q² Mohs and Gyeon Q² Bead. The former uses the latest in low volatile content silicon (Si) technology to lay down a hybrid film of perhydropolysilazane (PHPS), hydroxyl-rich organic copolymers and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) that condenses rapidly to form an amorphous organic-silica nano-composite that chemically bonds to painted surfaces at the molecular level. Unlike rival products, Gyeon Q² Mohs actually gains molecular weight as it cures (as skeletal Si-N bonds are replaced with Si-O bonds), which improves its structural integrity and restricts its shrinkage to 5% during the curing process (the average figure for SiO2 coatings is 30%). As a result, each coat of Gyeon Q² Mohs imparts a measurable 0.2 micron increase in total paint thickness, and significantly improves the scratch resistance of the underlying finish - on average, each coat adds two grades of hardness (2H) on the Mohs scale.
The second product in the system, Gyeon Q² Bead, lays down a nano-scale film of organofluorine polymers with reactive silyl groups that condenses rapidly to form a smooth fluorinated layer that chemically bonds to the Gyeon Q² Mohs basecoat. As a result of comprising a greater proportion of organic components (hydrocarbons), this sacrificial topcoat subtly alters the look of the Gyeon Q² Mohs finish (by adding extra richness and gloss) and also modifies its behaviour with respect to water and oil-based liquids. Whereas surfaces treated with Gyeon Q² Mohs become naturally water hating (hydrophobic), the addition of Gyeon Q² Bead significantly enhances this effect, to the point where water droplet contact angles on horizontal surfaces reach 120°. This extreme hydrophobicity causes rainfall and rinse water to bead up and roll off even more quickly, which not only enhances the self-cleaning effect for which Gyeon Q² Mohs is famed, but also serves to reduce the risk of water spots forming during the first few weeks following application. Moreover, surfaces treated with Gyeon Q² Bead also become naturally oil-repellent (lipophobic), meaning that it effectively seals them against vandalism by graffiti and most other forms of paint.
In addition to the strong self-cleaning and anti-vandalism properties outlined above, Gyeon Q² DuraBead also provides excellent protection against bird droppings, bug splatter, road salt and harmful UV radiation for upwards of twenty four months at a time, even on daily drivers (it is impervious to cleaning chemicals and pressure washing, and once fully cured can only be removed by machine polishing). Indeed, every Gyeon Q² DuraBead set comes supplied with a two year limited mileage warranty, which reflects the faith that Gyeon place in their flagship products. However, in order to ensure that Gyeon Q² DuraBead performs properly, it must be applied by a certified Gyeon detailer. In order to become certified you have to prove to Gyeon that their quality control criteria will be fully met, by fulfilling strict craftsmanship and studio requirements. For example, it is critical that Gyeon Q² DuraBead is applied indoors in an environment where temperature, humidity and lighting are all able to be controlled; it is simply not appropriate for it to be applied in any other setting. As a result, each Gyeon Q² DuraBead set is only available to purchase by a certified Gyeon detailer.
