How does CQuartz Finest Reserve work?
CQuartz Finest Reserve utilizes an entirely new technology built on a complex hybrid blend of quartz infused epoxy nanotech particles. This Next-Gen technology utilizes an advanced hybrid nano structural composition, which bridges the gap between ceramic and organic materials, creating an extremely high gloss, dense nano-coat. This results in an extremely glossy, durable, thick coating of protection that lasts for many years and with advances in a variety of attributes and unlike anything that has come before it.
+ Type: Next Gen Sio2 Poxi Nano
+ Durability: 3-10 Years
+ Thickness: 3µm
+ Sliding angle: 10°
+ Contact angle: 115°
+ Temp. resiliance: Subzero ~ 1000°>
Sophisticated 3D Nano Structure offers immense water beading and sheeting characteristics, with a Contact Angle of 110° ~ 115°, and the only coating on the market that offers a jaw dropping 10° sliding angle!
Finest Reserve yields a unique richness and depth found nowehere else in the world. Its advanced protective properties maintain this rich, glossy finish, resists oxidation and dulling for years to come.
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 their body’s explode 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 your paint may experience permanent damage. With 3µm of CQuartz Finest Reserve between the bugs and your paint they can no longer cause permanent damage to your paint. Finest Reserve is resistant to acids and its rare any mark will be left on the coating with reasonable washing schedules. In the rare event a bug does leave something behind you can be rest assured your paint is still safe beneath the coating.
CQuartz Finest Reserve offers extreme dirt and water shedding abilities beyond that of any other product available. With the self-cleaning affect provided by Finest Reserve, most dirt slides right off during the rinse and the rest is removed during the wash process.
Waxes and sealants obviously offer 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 one of the causes of a dulled appearance to your paint over time. Finest Reserve assists in resistance to fine swirls alongside proper maintenance and care. 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 blower to maintain near perfection.
Since day one, the goal of the CQuartz Finest program has been to approve only the most talented, honest, and character driven professionals across the world. Over the years the program has continually improved and demanded more of their installers. Currently we can proudly state that less than 100 installers in all of North America are licensed and have access to CQuartz Finest Reserve!
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 Finest Reserve you have a barrier which resists bird droppings and allows you time to discover and remove them so they cannot cause permanent damage to your paint.
Carnauba wax provides very minimal protection and unfortunately dust sticks to very easily. Polymer sealants are a little better and stay cleaner than waxes however they too allow dirt and dust to stick to them. In the air around us and on the highways, 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. Finest Reserve puts an end to this with a thick barrier that does not allow these contaminants to reach the paint surface and are easily removed with the use of CarPro Reset wash and occasionally CarPro decontamination products.
When Finest Reserve is selected, there is only one option for preparation of the vehicle. No expense will be spared in the preperation of the surface before application of Finest Reserve!

The short answer is just about everything. There are many differences between CQuartz and CQ Finest Reserve. While both are glass coatings Reserve offers greater gloss, dust and dirt resistance, fine swirl resistance, a slick to the touch feel, more resistance to water spots and the environment, and FINEST RESERVE is offered only through Authorized Installers who have developed their skills and take the utmost pride in their work.
If you do not have your installer maintain your vehicle we recommend using our WashMist Waterless Wash and a Microfiber Madness Dry Me Crazy towel for drying. If you have questions please ask us how to properly and safely wash your vehicle without introducing new damage to your paint's finish.
No, you should not clay your vehicle. Now that it is coated, regular washing will remove contaminants easily and bonded contaminants will become rare. In the case that bonded contaminants do collect, CarPro Iron X will easily dissolve them without hurting your coating. Order CarPro Iron X through our online store or in our shop in San Diego.
Yes, we highly recommend CarPro Reload. Reload is an inorganic quartz sealant with SiO2 in a water based formula. CarPro Reload adds slickness and gloss to your paint and can be utilized to maintain peak showroom shine and slickness.
Finest does resist swirls from washing better than any other product on the market. No ceramic coating will be able to prevent swirls 100% but with proper care and technique and the Finest coating you can drastically reduce them. The most important thing you can do is use the supplies we have recommended above, and ask us to show you the proper method of washing.
No, CQuartz Finest Reserve is extremely resistant to both low and high temperatures.
Over time contaminants can build and affect the coating. The good news is a simple treatment of Iron X will dissolve the contaminants and a spray on/wipe off CarPro Reload treatment will revitalize and return the upper hydrophobic layer to its former glory. Reload is water based but also contains SiO2 to easily repair the coating if needed.
It’s quite simple once you know what to do, please watch our video above for visual guide on how to apply CarPro Reload. See more at http://www.elitefinishdetailing.com/product/carpro-reload/
