Every now and again the car care rulebook is torn up and rewritten by innovative new technologies that come along and redefine what we can expect from detailing products. Currently, we are in the midst of such a period of change, this time brought about by the application of nanotechnology to surface coating science. Cquartz are a leading company in this field, and their new products for 2010 are simply amazing in terms of both the results they offer and the scientific principles that underpin them. Cquartz Clean Air is no exception this, and redefines what odour control products can do. Long gone now are the days of masking interior odours with cheap hanging paper air fresheners or strongly scented aerosol deodourisers. Instead, you can now quickly and easily lay down an invisible, unscented surface coating that will actively purify the air around you and permanently destroy odours at their source for up to six months at a time!
After reading up more about this revolutionary new product we decided to test it for ourselves, and suffice to say after very positive experiences with it in our own cars we are now very happy to be able to offer it for sale, along with several other innovative new products from the same line. Cquartz Clean Air is a perfect example of science at its best; a naturally occurring photocatalytic mineral oxide is employed to release active oxygen in the presence of natural light, which then decomposes airborne organic pollutants into harmless gasses and vapours. The whole process is environmentally friendly and incredibly efficient, and unlike other air purification methods, does not produce any harmful by-products. Moreover, the coating itself is easy to apply and goes completely unnoticed... it simply does what it sets out to do and constantly purifies the air in your car, banishing odours and leaving your interior smelling of fresh air. Genius!
Cquartz Clean Air is a revolutionary new air purification nano-coating that destroys airborne organic pollutants as they land on treated surfaces. Developed by scientists in South Korea, Cquartz Clean Air uses titanium dioxide (TiO2) as a photocatalyst to degrade and transform organic compounds into harmless gasses (e.g. CO2) and water vapour (H20). The science underpinning this process is as follows; when titanium dioxide is exposed to natural UV light it becomes chemically excited and releases free radicals (active oxygen ions) that oxidise and decompose organic matter very efficiently. Titanium dioxide thus has both self cleaning and disinfecting properties as a result of its photocatalytic nature.
The whole process of photcatalytic decomposition is non-selective and green in nature, meaning that all forms of organic compounds are destroyed and no harmful by-products are produced during the process. Indeed, Cquartz Clean Air is non-toxic, pH neutral, colourless, odourless and can be applied safely to all interior automotive surfaces. Each application will last for up to six months at a time, and during this interval the invisible nano- coating will constantly purify the surrounding air mass and prevent any odours from arising. In addition, any existing odours in the treated vehicle will rapidly disappear, never to return again.
Cquartz Clean Air is incredibly easy to use; simply spray it over the surfaces to be treated until they are completely moistened and then wipe them down evenly using an Atomiza Microfibre Work Towel. Finally, allow the treated surfaces to dry fully before travelling in your car.
