    Griots Ceramic speedshine




    Wanted to go for a drive today so headed down to Griots HQ. Got some Ceramic speedshine.

    I loved original Speedshine but stop using when got to Ceramics. Cleaned well and left a nice pop like OH speed shine or Ech20. Donít no if it cleans better than Ech20 but applies and removes easier.



    3 day grime on a quarter panel.

    Itís slick but i remember OGSS being super slick.

    Final thoughts:

    Glad to have Griots speed shine back in my arsenal. I only use Ech20 for light clean up or as a drying aid when i donít feel like using Hydrate. CSS will be replacing for good once my gallon runs out.

    Thank you for sharing your insight. How would you compare it to something like Meg's HCD, as far as cleaning ability, slickness, and overall ease of use?

    Iíd say close. megs is good stuff. Iíd say cleaning and slickness (both slick but not alot) are a tie. Shine griots would edge out.

    Griots Ceramic speedshine

    Couple other notes:

    Smell: MCQD takes the cake iím not a smell guy but that stuff smells great. The GCSS smells watermeloníish? Cant place it but maybe the color makes me think watermelon.


    Clay Lube: GCSS. Havenít found a lube yet better than Speed Shine. Sames go for this new version.

    More lubricious than MCQD. Felt the clay glided better. To be honest the megs probably work just fine but probably one of my least favorite clay lubes feel wise.

    Wipe off: slight edge to MCQD but to be fair i didnít use a fresh wipe off towel for the Griots. Probably close to same if i did.

    Hello,

    Used this for the first time yesterday. The label says not to breath in the fumes, maybe I read the label wrong. Definitely has a strong scent, benn trying to figure out what the scent is.

    From Griots:


    ďCeramic Speed Shine is a super effective detail spray that can be used for light duty cleaning of dust, pollen, smudges and light road grime while leaving behind a super slick ceramic finish. The unique, lubricant based formula contains advanced silane polymer technology combined with SiO2 to create a fast flashing, easy to use protective detail spray. The formula is great for those quick touch ups between washes and also can be used as a lubricant with paint cleaning clay or one of Griot's Garage's synthetic clay options during paint decontamination. Also works great as a drying aid, simply mist Ceramic Speed Shine on your still wet vehicle as you dry for an intense visual pop and additional ceramic protection. Remember when you first fell in love with Speed Shine? Get ready to do it all over again with Ceramic Speed Shine!Ē

    Itís a QD. Can be used for light cleanings. If i were to use a topper after cleaned car Iíd just use the 3-1.

    I guess I couldn't imagine using THIS product solely to clean a car after 3 days of driving because I wouldn't consider that "light cleaning". I'm pretty sure your mf towels would prove this outGriots Ceramic speedshine

    For 3 days of driving I'd use Brillant Shine rinseless wash made up as a waterless wash, much better cleaning product AND cheaper too. When done I'd then use Ceramic Speed Shine to boost the looks/protection.

    Iíve gotten great cleaning power out of regular Speedshine and now this. Iíd bet this would be as good or better in cleaning power than BSRW. Definitely more lubricity. It can be used for a clay lube.... BSRW isnít recommended.

    Iíve cleaned 2-3 day old dirty cars with SS and now Ceramics SS. Iím speaking from my experiences not my opinions. Cleaned fine and no swirls.

    Mike does waterlessís with somax glass cleaner. Iím sure most QDís could waterless with proper technique.

    Whatís your dilution for waterless for BSRW?

    Iíve seen were theíve recommended as pre wash but when I asked them about waterless they told me the donít have a dilution and recommended ther spray on car wash..... but it has nooba.
