Gtechniq C3 Smart Carnauba Review by Dream Detail
Gtechniq C3 Product Overview
Have you ever used a new product and performed a double take… and then a triple take? A product that produced instant results that you just couldn’t believe? Gtechniq C3 is one of those products. When I first used Gtechniq C3 Smart Carnauba, I thought I had done something wrong. After a simple wipe on, wipe off I was seeing gloss beyond belief. Despite being discontinued by Gtechniq, this is still one of my favorite products. A few places may still have a small stock, so buy up what you can while you can!!
Not only does it produce some of the best gloss I have seen from any wax it also has a lot of other uses most waxes could never dream of. Gtechniq claims that Smart Carnauba will work on ‘dry, wet, cool & hot surfaces.’ Among these different surfaces are ‘bodywork, glass, trim, wheels, tires and interiors.’ Durability is another part of this product that is truly exceptional. On my personal truck I have seen durability exceed 3 months which is truly unheard of for almost any carnauba wax. Gtechniq C3 can also keep a vehicle cleaner longer than any other wax I know of. Even with living on an 1/8th mile gravel driveway, my truck will still look clean two to three weeks after a wash. Gtechniq even claimed that a detailing facility in Japan has switched from a very expensive wax to Gtechniq C3 due to its glossier appearance and ability to keep cars cleaner longer.
Don’t think that the benefits just stop with surface protection and appearance, Gtechniq C3 can be used like any other quick detailer to remove minimal dusting or other small smudges. My personal car, a 2013 Focus ST, is sitting in the garage with 160 miles on it waiting for some new products to come out. While waiting, I maintain the car with C3 and use it to clean off any dust that may accumulate. Every exterior surface has also been coated with C3. Perhaps Gtechniq’s decision to discontinue this product is a sign of some exciting things to come in the future.
How to use Gtecniq C3 Smart Carnauba
So, how do you use this product? I use a microfiber applicator and spray a very small amount onto it. Using straight lines, I apply it to whatever surface I am working with. There is no wait or cure time so the residue can be removed immediately with a clean microfiber towel.

If you’re still skeptical, look at the amount of gloss and clarity that is obtained from this unpolished paint!
Gtechniq C3 Smart Carnauba Summary
Since my first use of Gtechniq C3, all of my other waxes sit in the fridge and don’t get used. I’m disappointed that Gtechniq is discontinuing this product, but I’m hoping that an even better version is on the way. If you have any questions on Gtechniq C3, please leave a comment below.
