    Re: Review - Adams UV Ceramic Paint and Spray Coating

    Update. Water beading and water behavior feedback.

    Ceramic Boost





    UV Paint Coating





    UV Spray Coating





    This one is a long one so here are the highlight points.

    Slickness test 1:56
    Water Behavior 3:50
    Final thoughts 11:30



    Long term durability results are coming at in a later project that I have planned.

    What do you guys think of the water behavior? I am going to leave it up you guys to determine if it is good as other coatings . Bit of a cop out but there is always fun in trying something different.

    Re: Review - Adams UV Ceramic Paint and Spray Coating

    beading looks excellent to me, I know it`ll be awhile but as soon as durability tests start to come in if they`re positive. I`ll make these an option to my customers. I wouldn`t want to upsell a product that still hasn`t had time for proper testing. One big selling point for me, their new store`s a 30 minutes drive from me. I`m a big fan of buying something and having it in my hands right then. I know Amazon has some detailing stuff same day Prime. But it doesn`t seem to have any of the stuff I really use.

    question, how visible is the UV out doors in the sun?

    Looks like any other paint coating when out in the sun. Zero visibility when in the sun with or without the UV light.

    No lol sorry, I meant with the UV light out doors. The tests I`ve seen on YT were in a garage with the lights off.

    Lol I know what you meant. Anyway the sun will wash out the light so it doesnít work that well outside. Best without little to no light.

    Same for the UV wheel coating.

    Nice write up. It’s definitely interesting. I have to agree it would be extremely helpful for someone doing their first coating.

    Review - Adams UV Ceramic Paint and Spray Coating

    Some more feedback. I moved onto another test on this panel that I had Adams on. I had no problem removing the coatings with 303 step 2 polish and a polishing pad.

    One thing I will nit pick on is the packaging. Most coating companies package their bottles in a box of some sort. Adams just sends out the bottle in the package which I find kind of cheap and just asking for trouble if the bottle breaks or leaks just like what happened to my bottle.

    Credit to their customer service for repacking the bottle and sending one out from their local store. But again just the bottle inside the shipping box with wrapping paper.

    Read someone on YT had recieved a bottle that was broke and most had leaked out. I suspect he called like you did, maybe that`ll jab them to get a box for future orders. I have BAAAAD luck so if I order it tomorrow I`ll 100% get a broken bottle. I`m surprised they don`t have a box for it, I`d even expect them it to have in a nice looking one. Their main clientele seems like the type that would make an un-boxing video lol.

    Re: Review - Adams UV Ceramic Paint and Spray Coating

    What does everyone recommend for the last polishing step when applying the uv ceramic paint coating?

    TW has the ceramic polish and wax before using the spray coating

    CarPro has essence

    Would Dodo Juice Lime Prime be a good choice?

    Any finishing polish followed by a prep wipe.

    Lime Prime and Lime Prime Lite have always been extremely heavy on the leftover oils for me. I could never get a clean wipeoff with them, so I wouldn`t recommend them as a pre-coating prep. I agree with The Guz, go with a standard finishing polish for your abrasive.

    This has nothing to do with the paint coating but they implemented the same feature into their leather coating which is a new addition to their line.
