    Are there many companies selling a graphene coating yet or just the SPS one?

    What kind of pricing are we looking at per application?

    Right now I use 2 coatings : McKee's 37 for my 2 year product and Gtechniq CLS for my 5 year one. McKee's cost almost nothing to use. About 5$ per car. CLS is about 80$ per car. I think the most expensive coatings on the market were from Optimum and Ceramic Pro, might be wrong. Opti-Coat Pro+ was in the 400$ range if I remember correctly. Never asked for pricing for Ceramic-Pro cause I have no interest in their products and company.

    Any of you thinking about switching to graphene?
    With SPS one has to be authorized to get them. It is as simple as contacting them. I am not allowed to divulge the price on it. There is also waxedshine that offers a self heal graphene coating. This one is also a installer only. I heard this one is rather easy to get approved for.

    Then you have Art De Shine which is run by the same folks who operate SPS. One can get their hands on the Art De Shine products. Google them. You are looking at $200 for 30ml of the nano graphene coating which said to be the same as SPS.

    Is Graphene the next big thing for coatings?

    Looks like Artdeshine is from across the pond and out of stock most places. When I googled it Migliore came up with a graphene coating.



    Pretty soon all the big brands will have to follow suit.

    Nope. Cquartz and GYEON along with the occasional 22pLe is all I need. I'm not paying $200+ for a bottle of coating that thus far hasn't proven to have anything really unique about it yet.

    Depends on time I suppose. With all the coatings around, a lot of people will still use pure carnauba and ceramic coatings definitely still are proven. With graphene, who knows. If it manages to outlast my experiences with ceramic, then maybe.

    Re: Is Graphene the next big thing for coatings?

    Here is another uncredible post

    The car received it's first wash last weekend. This coating is super hydrophobic and to quote waxmode oleophobic. Followed up with the spray detailer after blow drying the car.

    The spray detailer like the actual coating has the graphene juice in it. Definitely shake up the bottle due to it settling within the bottle. There is nothing complicated about using this. It is a quick detailer after all that is easy on and easy off. The coating is already slick so the difference is negligible. The gloss under the coating is great and the difference is in gloss is minor at this point. I can say that the spray detailer does not have the same water behavior as the actual coating from testing it earlier in the year on a test panel.

    I will say that the slick feeling from this is great.

    Low and behold it rained the next morning.



    Can be used on multiple surfaces and on any forms of protection.







    Enjoy the super hydrophobic properties after the first wash.
