Graphene Car Care
Graphene is a breakthrough in car care technology, providing enhanced performance in an easier to use package. Derived from ceramic (Sio2) coating technologies, our Graphene Coatings and car care products utilize the latest technology available to provide superior results.
What is Graphene?
Graphene simply put, is graphite (Made of Carbon) that has been mechanically or chemically engineered to be only one atom thick layer. This one atom thick layer is made up of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb lattice with some incredible strengths. At a molecular level, it is 200 times stronger than steel, yet six times lighter and more flexible. Making it a great candidate for use in our protective coatings, sealants, waxes and dressings.
What is a Graphene Coating?
A graphene coating is an evolution of ceramic coating technology. Utilizing the latest graphene-based technology to make a stronger, more durable coating that is easier to apply. In addition, since Graphene is a less reactive ingredient, it has been shown that Graphene-based coatings are less prone to water spotting or etching compared to ceramic-based chemistries.
Ethos Graphene Matrix, for example, utilizes a Silazane backbone to bond Graphene atoms on a molecular level. This is simply the glue that binds it to the surface, adding graphene powder to a ceramic coating would not add any benefit.

It's technically a "hybrid" coating because it needs to be formulated with other elements to make it usable as a coating you can put on your car! You can expect your Graphene Matrix Coating to last up to 5 years! Compared to Ceramic Coatings, Graphene Matrix performs extremely well in many areas, such as water spot resistance, the ability to reject water on contact, and surface hardness.
5+ years and potentially much longer! Due to their incredible strength, Graphene Coatings provide an extremely durable barrier that resists abrasion and wear beyond that of even traditional ceramic coatings.
Yes! Ceramic Coatings are a great way to protect and enhance the shine of your vehicle for many years to come. They provide a sacrificial barrier between your paint and the elements that help repel water and dirt to keep your car looking cleaner for longer.
In addition, Ceramic Coatings help to seal in the pores of your paint to create a ultra glossy, smooth finish that enhances the look of your vehicle.
Graphene Coating is an evolution on ceramic coatings comprised of variations of graphene oxides or reduced graphene oxides. This Graphene based chemistry is what gives these coatings their incredible strength and durability, much like that of the Sio2 which gives Ceramic Coatings their attributes with some additional improvements.
