    I was checking a certain site today and looked at the price of some of the coatings available and while a few such as Dr Beasleys were moderately priced, many were way, way overpriced.

    I was waiting for that question. It’s a brand new company and type of coating. I’ll post a link to a YouTube video about Graphene. It’s not about coatings but makes it obvious why Graphene is an excellent choice for a coating. Wristymanchego’s comment is what most will say, and that’s understandable, I suppose there are companies trying to come up with “buzz words” to try to market yet another ceramic coating just like the other 2000 ceramic coatings on the market. This one truly is different. One look at this coating in the bottle and you’ll know it’s something completely different than anything you’ve used. There will be a couple people on here trying it out, it’ll be interesting to hear their thoughts.

    Graphene is still heavily under research for commercialisation in many fields and billions of dollars is spent yearly on realising its applications.

    I’d be surprised if these guys haven’t just emulsified graphite with a surfactant and added a solvent to carry it, put it in a bottle and referenced videos of the benefits of graphene to sell.

    Call me when they’ve used it to its full potential as a self-healing clear coat.

    They didn’t reference the video, I did. This product may actually have self healing properties. There has been a lot of research on Graphene, to the point Ford is starting to use it in some parts.

    I’m not a chemist, but one of the great thing about SPS is that I do have the ability to talk directly to the chemist. I’ll certainly run your comments by him and see what he has to say.

    Great, further clarification would be nice.

    Graphene has been around for a long time however its application potential is still being realised. It’s a lot like Blockchain; revolutionary technology however it is currently being used to make people rich by trading a currency with no value. It’s true application and benefit to society is yet to be found and practiced.

    They may have a chemist but unless they’re a large multinational with a NASA size R&D department (like ford and Sony), they aren’t developing the graphene structure and application process. They’re simply buying in graphite and looking for a way to stick it to cars to be the first on the market.

    It’s fine for a business to do this, but it’s important for detailers to have a broader perspective on how product development works so they can make a more informed decision about a product without all the smoke. Especially when something new walks into town.

    If in fact these guys have some ground breaking application for the automotive industry, all power to them but it must be demonstrated before anyone believes. Remember when people believed ceramic was the holy grail because ```` made with ceramic is ultra hard and doesn’t scratch? Same thing here until proof.

    Fancy getting a key to that Camaro?

    Also, in the interest of having a community where that smoke is reduced (because we all need to see what we’re doing), please keep in mind that mentioning some of these details in the original post is important for quality and looking after your fellow detailer. If you have already posted about this before, fine, but perhaps mention it, not just the mysterious product name and a photo of a nice car.

    It ends up reading like a shill post instead of something useful for the community.

    PPG is a leader in coatings technology. They are probably playing around with graphene and other technologies. Companies like that get patents on their products while other people tend to use buzzwords to ride the coattails so to speak.

    I`m not saying that there aren`t companies making better products than were available 10 years ago, it`s just that buzzwords sells more products than being factual sells products. But if it works and you are happy then great.
