GTechniq EXO Ultra Durable Hybrid Coating 30 ml. New & Improved v3

New & Improvded! The new GTechniq v3 - It’s the same great gloss, slickness, and water beading you know and love, but with a couple more bonus features!

  • Significantly easier application than v2
  • 5h more pencil hardness than v2
  • Increased durability – 24 months rather than 18 months
  • Temperature resistant up to 572 F

Double the UV absorption and dirt repellency of Crystal Lacquer!

GTechniq EXO is a paint coating that protects virtually any surface from dirt, sun exposure, and moisture permanently. Durability tests prove that after 600 washes, water still beads on surfaces treated with EXO. Hybrid coating technology gives automobiles, aircraft, boats, and recreational vehicles unbeatable protection from the elements.

The science behind GTechniq EXO is amazing! It contains an organic element and an inorganic element, which both have a UV filter. The inorganic element forms a strong chemical bond with the substrate to which EXO is applied. The organic element provides the functional dirt and water repellency that you can see with your own eyes.

What's even more remarkable is that water beads on a EXO-treated surface in almost spherical drops. They look like little pearls sitting on your vehicle's finish. These water beads roll off easily, leaving a spot-free vehicle.

Gtechniq EXO provides a hard-as-nails, candy like shine on all paint colors
EXO produces a hard-as-nails, glass-like shine on all colors.


When you use GTechniq EXO Ultra Durable Hybrid Coating, durability is measured in years, not weeks. The hydrophobic coating stands up to windshield wiper usage for up to 2 years. EXO remains hydrophobic after years of regular washing and after 2 years of sun exposure.

But GTechniq EXO isn't all about protection. It also gives surfaces a high gloss and a slick feel like the best car wax. The best part is that the EXO finish will remain slick and shiny for much longer than any traditional wax or paint sealant. You'll enjoy years of surface protection with just one application!

Gtechniq EXO produces a super high gloss on all paint colors
1965 Ford Mustang machine polished to perfection using Pinnacle Advanced Swirl Remover & Advanced Finishing Polish. Paint was then prepped using Wurth Clean-Solve before GTechniq EXO was applied as the sole form of paint protection.


  1. EXO needs to be applied to surfaces that are free of contaminants and defects. Clay vehicle to remove above surface contaminants. If needed, machine polish paint to remove swirls, scratches, water spots, and anything else that hinders the shine.
  2. After paint is polished and all defects are removed, chemically strip the paint using GTechniq Panel Wipe Coating Prep. This will remove any polishing oils so EXO can properly bond to the surface.
  3. Working on one panel at a time, apply EXO directly onto a clean microfiber towel. From our testing, we’ve found a towel with a flat weave or short nap to work best.
  4. Evenly distribute product using minimal pressure. Go over each section 2-3 times to ensure even coverage.
  5. Immediately buff off residue using a clean, dry microfiber towel. It is important to immediately buff the area that EXO was applied to.
  6. Apply a second coat of EXO twenty minutes after first coat to ensure complete coverage. Avoid getting vehicle wet for 48 hours.
  7. Maintain the shine and protection using GTechniq W1 G-Wash and C1.5 Silo Seal.

I'm Sold
I knew coatings are the way of the future. My wife and I both bought brand new Lincoln MKC's. I wanted max protection on them right from the start. I've never seen such sheeting of water and it's been almost 4 months. This EXO is like no other product I have used. If the Crystal Serum Light has the claimed durability you'd have to be a dang fool not to be using this stuff. Even in just this short term (and in the past 4 months wasn't t really short term for most products) this stuff is simply worth every penny. I've now have bought more to do other things like my Hot Tub cover, awnings, outdoor furniture.
Pros1. Shine 2.Auto stays cleaner longer 3.Water sheeting ability is simply amazing 4.Four month durability and still going 5. 10 Stars ....so far
ConsIt's all about the prep work. It does take a little more effort to apply after all the prep work but it's worth the effort.

Works Great
I applied 2 layers of this to my Mazda CX5 after applying Opti-Coat to it first (I purchased and did this just before GTechniq released Crystal Serum.. I would love to have tried this though!). It worked great, I could start applying right after I finished with Opti-Coat. It has held up very well so far, only a couple months on it now. It was super easy to apply, and is shedding water very well. My car is dry after driving down the street, even if it just rained.

Long Lasting!
I've had a professional detailer apply C1 and EXO to both my cars. The shine is incredible especially on my black Roush which I drive everyday and park out in the unforgiving FL sun every day for 8 hours while I go to work. These were applied in May 2014 and after a year and a half the water still beads, shine is incredible. The only thing that needs to be touched up from time to time is the plastic molding under the windshield wipers. To preserve the EXO shine I use DP Rinseless Wash with the waffle weave extra absorbent towels and nothing else. Seems to work incredibly and minimizes swirl marks. The garage pic reflection is taken of the roof of the Black Roush.

It's O.K.
I applied the EXO and the C1 in a controlled garage and it took two days to complete the project, I was amazed at first how the water just rolled off the car, now 4 months later, the water just hangs out on my car, the shine is still pretty good but for the price and the effort, I was hoping for more than 4 months of satisfaction.
ProsNice Shine
ConsWater shedding only lasted 4 months.

Not happy with it
Product leaves streaks. I tried applying twice it with a little bit of product at the time . After my fist try, i could see product all over my hood. I was following instructions on the website Buff it all off. Tried again. Same happened. I was working in my garage. Car was buffed, polished and cleaned with Detailer's Coating Prep Polish before applying product. Will be using different product next time

Easy to apply and the gloss is incredible
Unlike C1, which is a great product, I found EXO v2 very easy to apply -- even during my first attempt. As another said, it looks like an oil going on, spreads and levels quite easily and it leaves your car with beautiful depth of gloss and shine. This combination (C1+EXOv2) has stood up very well in one of the worst Chicago winters in the past 100 years. I definitely will buy this again (I did, actually). I easily applied two coatings to my Tesla Model S and had a little left over to apply a third coat to my hood.
ProsEasy to apply. Exceptional gloss and hydrophobicity. Durable.

This is it!
I've tried CQuartz, I've tried Opti-Coat 2.0, and tbh ... I was more than happy with those products. However C1 is another beast alltogether. Goes on easier, less effort and worry, and the durability so far has been outstanding. Topped with EXO, well, what is there to say? There is nothing else out there that even comes close..

Fast, Easy and Durable
Using EXO is like using a quick detailer for speed of application. Spray, wipe and admire. If you want even more protection, treat with GTechniq C1+ first, then top with EXO. If you pay attention during application you will only need one coat.

Best on the market
Probably the toughest coating in the world right now. This stuff even beads gasoline and acid. EXO goes on like oil and comes off with minimal pressure. Water beads relentlessly, and to any applied surface. EXO can be used on glass, wheels, brake calipers, paint, weather stripping, anything! I have done 6 cars using the product sparingly, and could probably get at least 2-4 more. Leaves a 100% gloss layer and is so durable I honestly don't know how it does it. I will never use another wax again after using EXO. 5 stars!!!!
