What is Aquartz? Aquartz is the next generation protective coating for automobile surfaces. It protects automotive paintwork and glass, while enhancing the appearance with a deep gloss finish.

Unlike traditional organic waxes, Aquartz (Water-based and containing Silica / Silicon Dioxide / SiO2 and Titania / Titanium Dioxide / TiO2) chemically bonds to a vehicles paint surface, creating an ultra durable hybrid coat (a scratch resistant coating).
