    We had some light rain overnight. Some areas didnít have much standing water as it was starting to dry.

    sick sick sick pictures. Beadlock`s beading looks good. SPS looks amazing, Adam`s coating looks nice. By the time this thread`s 6 months old I`ll be able to afford a new polisher and have my car where it`s ready to be coated. Definitely going to keep my eye out for any beading pictures you post.

    Great test a lot of planning and hard work appreciate you doing this. This will probably help a lot of folks. Let’s go UK, Adams and Jade for some odd reason I’m routing against IGL

    Guz thanks for this comparison of coatings. The time this
    must have taken is mind boggling.

    Re: 2020 Ceramic Coating 1 Year Test

    It has been a little over a month and I am already starting to see some changes in hydrophobics with the car sitting outside 24/7.


    Best Self cleaning effect: (Top 5)


    Gyeon Syncro. As I mentioned from previous experience its initial performance is top notch. Lets see is it holds out or fizzles out in about 5 months total when Skin starts to show signs of degradation.
    SPS Graphene
    Cquartz UK 3.0
    IGL
    Adams UV Ceramic


    Loss of hydrophobics.


    Drexler Ceramic (Base Coat + Top Coat) - this has turned into sheeting like Gyeon Mohs. Water lays flat on the surface. Seems like it is either an application issue or the top coat is indeed already degrading.


    Adams UV Spray Coating - This showed signs of slowing down after the first wash. It has one of the worst self cleaning effects. Turning into sheeting.


    Cquartz TiO2 - This has started to turn into sheeting and its water beading has started to become more oblong shape. I believe this is looking like an application error as I have experienced this to perform on par with CQUK 3.0 on my hood for the last 20 months. It is not the first time I see application inconsistencies with it. I am going to leave it for now but I am to the point where I will not be focusing too much on it and will include is with test #2 next year.

    The remaining coatings seem to be doing fine.

    A shame on the update on the Adam`s spray coating, I know they`re different products. But it doesn`t give me a whole lot of hope for their regular coating.

    Interesting thoughts. I`m experiencing something similar with CQUK 3.0...but only on one part of the car. I washed my daughter`s car yesterday and discovered the CQUK to be hold up really well after 10 months...except for the hood. The hood appears to have little/no beading action at all, but it does sheet quite well. The same coating from the exact same bottle applied to my wife`s car is doing great everywhere. No idea what might be going on.

    This is why I think spray coatings are over hyped and overrated. If anything they are more of a glorified spray wax. Just my opinion as no spray coating will ever compete with a true coating.

    I wouldnít worry to much about the coating. Itís not blended by Adams. B&B blending is the blender. They are the blenders for Jade Puris coatings.

    I canít recall if I shook the bottle for the second coat. I have a feeling I did not leave it long enough for it to flash.

    On my hood it is going on 20 months side by side with CQUK 3.0.
