    Is there any point in putting Fusso Coat on top of CQuartz UK? I did put some Reload on the car after putting the CQuartz on.

    I used to use Fusso Coat on my Misano Red A5 and it made cleaning it a lot easier because the dirt wouldnt stick as much...I also like the beading on the fusso coat :wink new: but not sure if there is any point if the car is ceramic coated.

    @alpesh26 - Don't see the point of putting anything other than Reload on the top of CQUK TBH
    Reload is the recommended maintenance product by CarPro
    I'm just wondering whether anything else would degrade the CQUK
    Just my thoughts ...

    @scotty76 - Your thoughts ?

    Agreed @Bristle Hound. I'd just stick Reload over the top of Cquartz. Also @alpesh26 if the beading seems to be dropping off try a wash with CarPro Reset shampoo it seems to detox the paint work and put things back to how they should be. This is based on my experience with Cquartz Finest and also Gyeon MOHS+.

    Cheers for the replies, I wont put any Fusso coat on top of the ceramic coating. It took 3 days to get the ceramic coating on (prep etc.) so I really dont want to be ruining that work.

    It's still beading as its only been on about 6 weeks, but good to know about the reset shampoo if it does drop off.

    I know this is a difficult question to answer, but on average how long are ceramic coatings lasting?

    Ceramic coatings are a difficult one...im a MASSIVE fan of Gyeon MOHS and Gtechniq Serum Light/Exo/C1 etc Everytime I have applied any of those, I have managed to get around 2 years out of a single application...even after the two years, it still still beading very well and repelling the dirt, but you can notice a performance drop off...my CLS has had the same coating for 3 years now and I am only now considering re-doing it!

    These coats are occasionally topped up by a wax for a show etc if I am entering show and shine, but for general washing, its literally a wash, a quick speed detail to remove any water spots, and its done

    Out of curisoty, howcome you would want to put the Fusso wax ontop? Is the beading etc not great on the CQ?

    It was more to protect the ceramic coating and the beading was tighter with the fusso coat than the CQUK, but it seems that we don't know how fusso coat will react with the ceramic coating. I'll stick with using reload when it needs a top up

    It's a glass coating ffs it won't react to any wax, this is what gets me with this "Too Anal" guff. ... And the detailing world is full of this/people!!!!! there paint work doesn't look or is in better condition than say my own for example ....... Who is far from anal about detailing

    This is the thing yer never going to know what works best if you don't experiment and experimenting is a part of detailing.....

    I used Fusso on the RS to get me thru the winter months
    Have to say I’m impressed

    Packaging don’t make much sense though

    Following up on this, I did put the fusso coat on top of the ceramic coating but it didnt really 'stick' it lasted for about a month but it seems to have come off...nowhere near the durability of just using it on top of a polish. I'm going to wash the car with CarPro Reset and apply Reload on it
