One of the world’s leading car care manufacturers today (Sunday 24 January 2016), released a new ceramic paint protection coating, allowing avid car detailers to extend the lifetime of a car’s showroom shine.

Gtechniq, the creators of a complete range of nano, high-performance car coatings and maintenance products, have launched Crystal Serum Light, a prosumer version of their professional-only, ceramic composite ‘super’ coating known as Crystal Serum.

Unlike Crystal Serum, Gtechniq’s highest performing coating, which if applied incorrectly needs to be wet sanded off a car’s surface, Serum Light offers ultimate performance – 80 percent of that of its parent product – but can be machine polished from your vehicle’s paintwork.

Robert Earle, Gtechniq managing director, said: “Since launching our revolutionary Crystal Serum as a professional-only product in 2014, demand for a similar product for the detailing enthusiast has become apparent. In response to this we have formulated a paint protection that is safer for the DIYer to use.”

Serum Light forms an ultra-durable, high-gloss, slick-to-touch, chemically bonding, inorganic layer of 9h optically clear ceramic. Once applied, gloss levels will remain higher for significantly longer when compared to traditional paint protection products, and cleaning your car will be a breeze.

The high density ceramic layer is resistant to chemicals ranging from pH2 – pH12. And contaminants such as tree sap, tar, and hard water spots are much easier to remove from a car’s paintwork.

Unlike mainstream wax and organic polymer coatings, Serum Light can resist much higher and lower temperatures, from minus 40 degrees Celsius, to as high as 250 degrees Celsius.

Crystal Serum Light can be applied to a car as a stand-alone product, or for the definitive hydrophobic finish, it can be over coated with Gtechniq EXO or C2.

Serum Light retails at RRP £55.00 (30ml) or £85.00 (50ml), and can be purchased from, or most good independent detailing suppliers.

Mr Earle added: “If you have any doubts about either your ability to apply, or do not have access to a covered and well-lit facility where you can apply the product, we strongly recommend you book your vehicle in to have the coating applied by one of our fully trained Accredited Detailers – by doing this your coating is then covered by a 5-year guarantee.”
