Breakthrough Hybrid Graphene Formula
A graphene (rGO)-infused ceramic (Si02) spray combined into one product to provide an effortless application with long lasting results.
Maintains and Enhances Coatings
This spray and wipe formula adds 2-in-1 versatility to enhance coatings or achieve durable, stand-alone protection.
Durable Stand-Alone Protection
Resist provides exceptional long-term protection for 6+ months. Repelling UV rays, water, dirt and dust on contact.
Incredibly Slick, Glossy, Streak Free Finish
The perfect combination of ease of use and performance. 


Our formulation team developed an ALL DIY graphene + ceramic super sealant that uses our Insta-Bond Technology™ to create a super durable and slick coating on-contact.

Finally, a ceramic + graphene super sealant, all in one bottle!

Our proprietary formula pairs our ceramic resins with graphene, creating a super slick, durable topcoat that goes on effortlessly. When you spray Resist on any surface, the coating forms immediately thanks to our Insta-Bond Technology™! The bond created provides truly excellent and lasting results! 

Application is done in minutes, not hours!

Resist is versatile and can be used in a couple of different ways:

Coating Maintenance – Resist furthers the life expectancy of your coating. If you have a coating that needs a touch-up, Resist works extremely well to fill in those low spots.

Stand-Alone Protection – If you have an uncoated car that you want to protect in an easy and cost-efficient way, Resist provides stand-alone protection for up to 6+ months!

Insta-Bond™ Contact Formula

Insta-Bond™ is our proprietary coating technology that instantly produces gloss, slickness, water beading and durability upon contact. You can see this effect at work with each spray of our product. Upon contact with the surface the product immediately disperses and cures. It cures so quickly that even excess product residue beads up and begins to reject itself!

Anyone can achieve incredible results

Long gone are the days of spending hours bending over your car, scrubbing, polishing and waxing away. Resist is the answer! Whether you're just getting started in detailing or if you're a professional detailer, anyone can pick up Resist and be shocked by the truly incredible results it provides!


What's the difference between Resist and Defy?

Resist and Defy are similar in a couple ways but very different products. We designed defy to be used as a versatile all in one, cleaner, detailer and top coating for ongoing maintenance of your vehicle.

Resist is designed with maximum protection, gloss and slickness in mind to be used as a base coating for even easier maintenance. You can pair this with ongoing use of Defy or use Resist as a topper for any ceramic or graphene based coating, spray or wax.

Can Resist be used on top of Coatings?

Yes! In fact we recommend maintaining coatings with Resist to increase the shine, slickness and water beading performance. We created Resist to work synergistically with both Graphene and Ceramic based products to rejuvenate and enhance the coatings performance with each use.

Is Resist Graphene based or Ceramic?

Resist is both! We were able to formulate a water based spray sealant that incorporated all the advantages of both technologies into one product. This means that you get the consistency, strength and durability of ceramic based protection with the additional advantages of Graphene for increased water spotting resistance, longevity and ease of use. 

In addition, because it incorporates both technologies this enables one product to be versatile enough to maintain and top both Ceramic Based and Graphene based coatings, sealants and waxes.

How is Ethos Resist different from the other popular detailing brands?

Many of our competitors cut corners and dilute their products in order to spend more money on clever advertising and marketing. Ethos Resist is the cutting edge of detailing technology and produces true long lasting protection, easier than ever before. Not only is Resist packed with the highest concentration of Graphene and Ceramic ingredients, but we went to great lengths to completely engineer an entirely new technology we are calling Insta-Bond™.

What is Insta-Bond™ Technology?

Insta-Bond™ is our breakthrough, proprietary technology of nano-polymers that immediately disperses and cures onto the surface. This effect results in immediate shine and protection with even less effort than before.

How do I clean the car once Resist is applied? Can I wash it as usual down the road with soap or as I usually would?

Resist is a durable, long lasting sealant when used on its own and offers incredible attributes as a coating maintenance topper. We designed this to be used hand in hand with our Defy, all in one cleaner for ongoing maintenance. Use these two together for an incredible waterless regimen. If looking to do a traditional hand wash, our Ceramic Shampoo and Foam Party are great options and completely compatible with Resist.

How many cars will a bottle do?

A little goes a LONG way, each bottle is enough to coat 3-4 average sized vehicles from top to bottom.

How long does the shine and protection last?

Resist's shine and protection lasts for 6-12 months if you desire to only apply it once. We formulated Resist to be extremely slick and easy to use and recommend topping and maintaining your vehicle with it as frequently as you'd like to achieve a just waxed shine with an ultra-slick finish.

Wow !!!

The ease of application is amazing!!! This stuff goes a long way and just seems to melt into the paint. There’s hardly anything to buff off. The slickness is incredible as well. My TurtleWax Flex Wax just got demoted. Thanks, Ethos!!!
