ecocoat quartz is formulated with our proprietary modified active material and carrier to give it the durability, gloss, hydrophobicity, 9H hardness and self-cleaing properties. Plus, ecocoat quartz is free from any carcinogenic chemicals.

What’s inside a bottle of ecocoat quartz?

Similar to ecocoat premier (click to read our previous product highlight), ecocoat quartz contains polydimethylsiloxane. It is one of the key components which increases the hydrophobicity (we also have an entry about this, right here) of the coating.

In addition to polydimethylsiloxane, ecocoat quartz also includes an additional adhesion promoter that ultimately enhances the coating’s adhesion to the applied surface. This implies that it bonds better and remains attached for a longer duration. The adhesion promoter enhances the durability of the coating from wearing off, thus increasing the coating’s lifespan.

How does ecocoat quartz achieve 9H hardness?

In coating, there are many particles of linear polymer chains. Polymer is a substance that contains molecular structure that mainly holds a large number of similar units. When paired with the right crosslinker, the individual polymers chains are able to bond with each other, improving the strength of the coating.

Increasing the overall hardness of the coating occurs as polymer chains become more rigid through crosslinking. Therefore, when the density of crosslinks is higher and more effective, raters consider the coating harder and stronger. Presence of very high cross-link densities will result in a material with high stiffness and glass-like properties.

The crosslinker in the ecocoat quartz formula is highly effective which creates denser, stronger bonds within the polymers leaving a glossy hardened surface.

The components in ecocoat quartz enables it to have an improved durability for a longer period of hydrophobicity. The hardness of the coating, derived from its high crosslinking density, also enables ecocoat quartz to have a superior hardness, reducing the micro-scratches and wear and tear. 

The hardness of our coatings are lab tested based on the pencil scale (learn more about pencil scale hardness here). Ranging all the way up to 10H, our coatings carry their own varying degrees of hardness. See other ceramic coatings we carry on our website,

Paving the road for eco-friendly and detailer-safe products

The creators developed Ecocoat Quartz, the pioneer 9H REACH compliant coating from the ecocoat series, to fill the gap in the market for a high-performing coating that is also environmentally friendly. It contains no banned substances and chemicals by REACH and has LOW VOC.

While most manufacturers may laugh at the possibility of a product with high performance power that is both environmentally friendly and low in VOCs,  IGL Coatings paved the path to the green side.
