Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! Today, we’re going to talk about Silicon Dioxide – SiO2. Now, it’s no secret within auto detailing that SiO2 works – and we mean, it really works. Also known as a ceramic coating, it acts as a protective coating on your car, it bonds with your paintwork and seals it from contaminants such as dirt, dust, pollen and even water. You might have heard this referred to as “hydrophobic” and that’s exactly what SiO2 is – it’s scared of water; water is scared of it. It just slides right off. It’s super tough and durable, meaning that the best SiO2 products out there will provide effective protection for anything up to a year.

SiO2 Quick Coat

Our SiO2 Quick Coat is a ceramic spray. This means that it is super easy to apply, but creating a spray also means that we could blend it with a couple of bonus ingredients too, because we like to spoil you at Proje’. Sure, we’ve loaded our Quick Coat with ultra-effective SiO2, but we’ve also blended in some cleaning agents and natural soap to double it up as a cleaning product.

Why have we done this? Well, SiO2 works best on clean surfaces and adding cleaning compounds ensures that as you apply, you are doing so to the cleanest surface possible. Put SiO2 and soap together, and you get an amazing car cleaner that produces incredible results. And what’s more, you can use it on paintwork, glass, chrome and plastic – either on your vehicle or even inside your home.

Putting a Shine on Things

Now, our SiO2 Quick Spray delivers top quality shine for your vehicle too, because of the blend of products that we have crammed into one for you. And a brilliant shine combined with a sealed, protected surface is one that will last for ages – up to a year in fact. This makes it the longest lasting shine you can buy. Combine this with serious hydrophobic qualities, and you get dazzling paintwork with water beading like you see on the movies. And it’s all achievable with just a few sprays and a microfiber cloth. Let’s take a look at how it works.

How to Use Our SiO2 Quick Spray

Using our SiO2 quick spray couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is spray directly on to the surface you are working on, then really rub that mixture in with one folded microfiber towel. This is your cleaning phase.

Now, it’s all about moving quickly. Before the mixture dries, get a second towel and buff everything that’s left until it dries. This is your shining and protecting phase. You’ll find it works quickly and easily – no smears, no smudges and no stains – just a perfect, clean shine.

Work over a small area of the vehicle at once, then repeat the process until the desired surface has been completely covered. Now, take a break and bask in the glory of that shine!
