The UK’s leading detailing products manufacturer have launched a new product designed to eradicate water spot marks on a car’s surface, today (Tuesday 26 June 2018).

Gtechniq, the brand behind leading surface protection products such as Crystal Serum Ultra, announced W9 Water Spot Remover, in a bid to tackle etching on car bodywork from chemicals left behind in rain and hose water.

Rob Earle, managing director at Gtechniq said: “We have spent a lot of time developing and testing W9 against other industry leading water spot removers to ensure we have produced the best water spot remover on the market.”

Water spots are an area of dried mineral deposits left on car after being allowed to air dry, and if left for a long time on the surface to bake in the sunshine, can be as detrimental as bird droppings – so they need something exceptional to remove them.

Unlike other water spot removers, W9 has a three mechanism approach to removal. It dissolves and removes salts. Traps metal ions, which are commonly found in tap water. And finally, removes silica scale which is traditionally this very tough to eliminate.

W9 Water Spot Remover is 100% coating safe and works on all paint types and vinyl. It is completely non-hazardous and can be used on glass where watermarks can be exceptionally hard to remove.

At RRP £9.99 (250ml) and £15.95 (500ml), W9 Water Spot Remover is available from and all good independent car detailing stockists.
