    That white pearl is really beautiful thanks to your care. Very silky smooth.

    Re: I put my money where my mouth is

    I just read the product page. Ya know, I think a black (ease of seeing imperfections) Jeep Wrangler would be a great test for this coating. Lower doors get lots of road spray, and dirt,rocks, etc if driven on dirt roads and trails.

    I don't really consider a product that needs boosting at a specified interval as lasting 25 years. One coat that lasts 25 years, do the test and then report back. Until a company can back up their claim that just a marketing blurb.

    Yeah well everything requires a "boost" now and then, plus maintence. I mean embedded contaminants are always going to be there and since this product is so thick I wonder if mechanical decon is still possible w/o hurting the coating too much, I'm sure chemical decon would be just fine.

    By the time that coating is about 25% through its life graphene technology will be more advanced and the chemists will be working on THE NEXT THINGI put my money where my mouth is

    I wouldn't put too much faith in it self healing anything more than very fine scratches. Even as 'thick' as this coating is at 4-6 μm (roughly 0.236 mils) it still falls far short of self-healing PPF (8 mils) as far as thickness and even self-healing PPF gets jacked up with scratches over the years. I'd hazard a guess any defect that requires a polish on a light cutting pad to remove will far exceed any coatings ability to 'self-heal' to any visible/meaningful degree.

    I guess ya never know though, maybe they've 'cracked the code'...only time will tell.

    Nailed it. My black camaro has full xpel ultimate has has defects that won't self heal and is around 8-10mils thick. At 500 for this coating and .23mils I don't see it performing any better than any other pro grade coating
