Had never heard of it. Ran across it on another forum.

It’s just now starting to be used in the detailing industry. It has awhile before it is matured and worked with enough for me to trust it. It has some of the best hydrophobic properties for water beading but is not proven to be as durable as ceramic coatings yet. Until big name companies with the money start to further develop and tweak the chemistry, it will continue to evolve and may eventually be better than ceramic coatings.

Soooo, I offer Graphene and Metal Oxide coatings as well as IGL Kenzo. I have graphene on my Hellcat and Kenzo on my Jeep. My Hellcat was stored shortly after coating, and I started driving back in April. It is still shiny, still cleans up well but the hydrophobics aren't the same as my Kenzo Jeep that went through winter. I have never had water spotting issues with any of my IGL coated cars which is a common complaint for ceramic coated cars. I've not had people contact me in 3 years saying my car looks like crap. Graphene is the "latest and greatest" but is it, I don't know. It is SUPER slick when initially applied, much like GTech CSL and EXO.

How does it compare to Cquartz finest?

Got an email the other day from Adams saying they are offering it now.

I can't offer any comparison to CQ F or Opti Pro as I've never worked with them. I have always told anyone who asks, pick what you think is best for you, best is subjective, best spaghetti sauce for you might not be best for me. The ALL offer similar properties.

While the bottle is SMALL, from an installers point of view, you get about 5 cars out of as it stretches. A Kenzo kit is close to the same price, 2 cars.

I'm a new owner, having my 2018 Charger for just about three weeks. I did have a full paint correction along with a 5 year Graphene ceramic coat. Can't speak for durability but can say, aesthetically, it's jaw dropping. 0117F9D6-F12A-44BB-AF1F-7F47EB5C0D21.jpeg

Welcome.
Lots of great people and experience here.
Car looks beautiful.
What was the graphene price (if you don't mind my asking)?

Since I was asked, I'll share the costs. I hope I don't offend anyone. The entire package included a complete interior detail, clay bar bath, complete paint correction (3 steps,) 5 year graphene ceramic coat, all glass ceramic coated, wheels ceramic coated and interior ceramic coated...$2,700.00. The graphene represented $1,750.00 of the total cost. Since the project was completed, I've achieved a speed of 150 MPH which resulted in some significant bug encounters. The cleaning was simple and I believe I could've accomplished it with Kleenex and spit.
I'm very happy with the results. B26D266F-DEF6-4392-A9E4-CD87B7E60830.jpeg
