Why Use Gtechniq G1 ClearVision Smart Glass?
Unlike regular rain repellent coatings that adhere to the surface of the glass using relatively weak physical bonds, G1 uses a chemical bond which gives G1 unrivalled durability.
G1 ClearVision Smart Glass is extremely durable, the hydrophobic function improves wet weather visibility helping to improve safety and eye strain. It also makes removing contaminants from the glass such as ice, bugs and tree sap much easier.
G1 will only work on glass substrates and so, it will not work on modern headlight lenses which are made from polycarbonate. For these you will need to use G5 Water Repellent for Glass and Perspex.
Choose the 15ml bottle for windscreens only, but the 100ml bottle if looking to use on all of your car’s glass. G1 is supplied with G2 Residue Remover.
Simple Steps To Help You Get The Best Results
Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area, in a temperature that is 5°c or above
Wear gloves and do not apply in direct sunlight
Clean all glass you are going to protect with G6 Perfect Glass and an MF5 Power Glass Cloth
For best results machine polish the glass with G4 Nano Glass Polish and a medium pad. Or alternatively, polish the glass with G4 Nano Glass Polish and a hand polishing pad. Apply a small amount and polish in a circular motion
Once finished, clean the glass back to a shine with G6 Perfect Glass and an MF5 or MF1 ZeroR Microfibre Buff Cloth – repeat this as many times as needed to remove all residue
Shake bottle well before use
For windscreens we recommend using 3 layers of G1, but for side and rear screens only 1 layer is needed
Apply a liberal amount of G1 to a AP1 Lint-Free Applicator Pad
Work product into the glass in a circular motion covering all of the glass, and leave to cure for 5 minutes
Using a new AP1 apply the same amount of product to the pad, but this time put G1 over your previous layer in a side to side motion, leave for a further 5 minutes to cure
Apply your third layer with the same amount of product on a AP1, however this time apply in vertical straight lines, leave to cure for 15 minutes
Remove cured residue, with G2 Residue Remover. Dab the G2 onto the remaining applicator and apply to a small area at a time, then buff the glass immediately with an MF1 cloth
Finish by cleaning the wiper blades and glass with G6 Perfect Glass and an MF5
We recommend you apply a layer of G1 on your wiper blades without removing residue. If wiper blades are worn they should be replaced
Do not expose your car to the elements for at least 12 hours
Store in a cool, dry place
Use G1 and G2 within 3 months of opening
There may be some wiper blade judder, in 90% of cases this will disappear within two weeks. Please take a look at our FAQ section if this problem persists
