Hey there, car enthusiasts! We all know how our beloved cars face the wrath of the environment - from bird droppings and rail dust to acid rain and tree sap. This could lead you to spend hours or more detailing the crud off your paint. But guess what? We have a solution for you - a graphene coating. It protects your car’s paint better than any wax, promising to keep your car looking spick and span for longer.
Never done it before? No worries, we've got you covered. Here's a beginner-friendly step-by-step guide on how to apply graphene coating to your car.
What You'll Need
To get the job done right, you'll need some quality products. Here's the lineup:
- Graphene Matrix Coating
- Defy Cleaner
- Detox Ceramic Coating Prep Spray
- Clay bar or clay mitt
- Finish Shine Ceramic Detail Spray
- Polisher and scratch-removing compounds
- Microfiber cloths
- Graphene coating applicator
Step 1: Prep the Exterior
This is the most time-consuming part, but it's totally worth it. The aim is to get a perfectly clean, unblemished paint job. Here's how:
- Clean the exterior: Start with a washed car, then spray each panel with Defy. Wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth for a streak-free finish.
- Decontaminate the paint: Using a clay bar or mitt and some Pro Shine Ceramic Detail Spray as a lubricant, remove any gunk still stuck to the paint.
- Remove scratches (if needed): For a new car, a light polish might suffice. For a used one, a thorough cut and polish will be needed to remove swirl marks and scratches. Use a power polisher and the recommended products.
- Give it a final once-over: Use the Ethos Detox prep spray to strip away any remaining contaminants. Wipe it off with a clean microfiber cloth. Your car is now ready for the graphene coating.
Step 2: Apply the Graphene Coating
With your car prepped, it's time to get glossy. Shake your bottle of Graphene Matrix well, then apply a few drops to your applicator. Work in straight, slightly overlapping lines on a small area (about 3’ x 3’). Make sure the applicator glides smoothly; if it drags, add a few more drops.
You'll start to see a "rainbow effect" as the coating bonds to the paint and begins to dry. Once it turns hazy (after about 1-3 minutes), wipe the area in a circular pattern with a microfiber cloth. Use a work light to check your progress before moving to the next area. Consider applying a second coat for a longer-lasting, mirror-like finish.
Step 3: Let It Cure
Patience is key here. Your graphene coating might look dry, but it actually needs at least 48 hours to cure fully. After two days, it's safe to expose your car to the elements, but the coating will continue to harden for about a week.
Step 4: Maintain the Shine
Your car's fresh graphene coat will resist grime much better than before, but it's still going to face the elements. Regular washes with a product like Ethos Ceramic Shampoo will maintain the hydrophobic action that forces water to bead off. For spot cleaning, use DEFY Ceramic Waterless Wash to safely remove dirt and other contaminants.
You've made it to the end of our step-by-step guide on how to apply a graphene coating to your car, but the journey doesn't stop here!
