    Looks like they have two versions. A hand applied version and a spray version with the spray version having less durability.

    I`d still want an explanation of what it takes to break the bond on a version that is supposed to last 5+ years.

    Likely the same thing that breaks the bond of a claimed 5-7 year ceramic; medium polish on foam cutting pad...at most.

    In their marketing they note "If installed incorrectly, polishing may be needed" so seems like nothing earth-shattering.

    Read somewhere the "7+ years..." comes from "simulated washing cycles" which is likely a best case scenario...Ph Balanced soaps and such, a far cry from 20k miles on freeways in Buffalo, NY.

    Soooooo 5000 washes is equal to 14 years if you wash your car every day! And thats using dish soap!

    Amen, these are some of the roads and streets I frequented and still frequent when visiting family or Buffalo Bills... if you can drive it here, you can drive it anywhere.

    Well, I stand corrected...certainly not the first time!

    Still, dish soap & sponge are a far cry from actual usage but well played by them on including `dish soap` to reference the thought that dish soap strips LSP`s.

    No sweat, I would certainly love to see how it does in rough wintry climates! But Graphene has been around for about a year in super high end companies and has proven itself bulletproof

    I`ve had a graphene coating on my daily for the last 13 months/16k miles in NE Ohio. It has some very nice attributes that may appeal and work well for some but methinks the universal `This is gonna be a ceramic-killing game changer...` is a bit premature. It didn`t come out of winter as well as many of the ceramics I`ve used.

    The question is (to me anyway) how much of a role the actual graphene component in the formulation plays in the overall durability/performance over time vs. the other carriers, solvents, misc elements of the overall formulation?

    I had some leftover in the bottle and noticed that a couple of months later the dark graphene (I`m guessing) settled out to the bottom of the bottle. Shook it up and applied to hood of a fleet vehicle and it seemed to have no real detrimental affect.

    It`ll be interesting to see if graphene proves to be a singularly wonderful product that trumps current coatings or is just another great choice in a sea of great coating choices.

    It would be a nice feature if it lasts longer in the bottle without hardening, improved shelf life.

    I`m not so sure. When Mothers CMX first came out, Apex Detail tried to remove it with a polish and that didn`t remove it. In the real world most people noticed a drop off in performance after a couple months and it most likely starts to break down. Maybe heat and humidity play a role in it breaking down.

    ADAMS Graphene spray coating

    I polished off SPS Graphene from my test panel with M205 and a polishing pad. It was gone in the blink of an eye. It’s rated at 5 years.

    Doesn’t take much to remove a coating.

    I forgot to mention that SPS is a pro coating.

    Yeah.............................I leave here. Winter is just terrible. We can`t wait for the kids to finish school so we can leave. Salt destroys wax and sealants in half or less. Hoping CSL/Exo makes a difference this year.

    Re: ADAMS Graphene spray coating

    I am a big fan of the Adams spray coating I have put it on tons of cars it got a bad wrap online from chemical torture testing I have seen it on several car at the 6 month mark it was still doing well. It is even easier than gloss coat. I am around a car in 10 minutes I specifically use it in direct sun light it allows me to put it on thicker. It has two solvents I’ve notice first is propanol which flashes very fast which allow you to spread it easy it flashes like a panel wipe. The second solvent is most likely methyl acetate it’s the one that rainbows and has distinct smell. In direct sunlight it aids me in put on very thick coating and cooks off the first solvent fast then I get the rainbow normal flash at about a minute and wipe off. Wipe off is an easy as optiseal. If I was in the shade or garaged I would have to use less products.

    They have the graphene spray out which I’m looking forward to after I use the remaining bottles. I have the new full coating ordered for my daily going to test it

    www. Goographene set graphene dispensed dirt cheap in different solvents public can buy. They have water dispersion I wanted to buy it and add it to C2

    if the online crowd hammers away at the graphene spray take with grain of salt
