Made with Graphene, an extremely strong and flexible material that won a Nobel Prize in 2010 for its incredible properties.
One application creates a durable, permanent bond that provides exceptional long-term protection for 5 or more years, as shown by our ASTM certified testing.
Incredible hydrophobic properties continuously repel water, dust, dirt, and other contaminants unlike ever before, making washing easier and less frequent.
The nanoparticle Graphene layer leaves a stunningly rich, deepened gloss that drastically enhances the look and shine of your paint.
The Most Advanced Nanotechnology Infused Coating on the Market
Graphene Matrix creates an extremely durable protective coating with superior strength, flexibility and repellency that enhances and maintains vehicle finishes. A revolutionary DIY coating with cutting edge Graphene technology that creates remarkable shine and protects any vehicle effortlessly.
Revolutionary Technology Infused with Graphene
Graphene Matrix utilizes an innovative Graphene Oxide composite that bonds to form an impenetrable layer of protection. Our unique chemistry makes Graphene Matrix easier to install than ever before. Graphene Matrix does not harden or crystallize like normal ceramics, reducing the risk of potentially irreversible high spots or streaking.
5 Years of Protection
Graphene Matrix Coating durability is rated in years, not months like many spray on “Coatings”. Once applied, Graphene Matrix forms a permanent bond to the finish protecting and repelling contaminants.
Graphene Matrix Coating's unparalleled ability to resist contamination is due to its extremely high surface sheer angle, shedding water and contaminants while reducing the risk of etching, water spotting, and staining. In addition to its resistance to abrasion, weathering, and oxidation, Graphene Matrix Coating creates a layer that forms an almost impenetrable barrier on top of the surface once applied. Future maintenance, such as clay barring and light polishing to repair possible imperfections in the coating, can be performed without sacrificing its integrity, resulting in the ability to finally achieve a near-permanent coating.
How to Prep for Application
Clean any loose dust, dirt and contaminants from the surface.
Clay bar any rough embedded contaminants from the surface to ensure no impurities interfere with the coatings properties.
Polish/Compound to remove any paint defects in the form of scratches, swirl marks and oxidation. Graphene Matrix is a semi permanent coating so once applied any defects will remain sealed underneath.
Deep clean any polish oils or residues from the surface that could inhibit the bonding process using Ethos Detox.
Remove any residual water that can be hiding underneath panel gaps, headlights or taillights which could drip out and affect the coatings curing process.
Temperature and humidity can play a big factor in “flash” time (Time between application and when the coating is ready to be wiped off). We recommend applying in temperatures between 65-75*. In higher temperatures flash time will be expedited so first test using a small section to determine workability before moving onto the rest of the vehicle.
Graphene Matrix can be applied to any painted, plastic or glass surface (including windshield).
How To Apply
Make sure the surface has been completely cleaned and decontaminated with Ethos Detox. The cleaner the surface, the better the bond!
Shake bottle well.
Apply a few drops of Graphene Matrix onto your applicator until evenly covered.
Starting with horizontal / top surfaces first, applying in straight lines slightly overlapping from one line to the next. Work in small areas approximately 3'x3' or the size of a door or half a hood at a time. Temperature and humidity will determine coverage areas allowable between application and removal.
Applicators should glide smoothly on the surface while laying down an even layer of coating. If the applicator starts to drag or the application becomes inconsistent, apply additional drops to the applicator.
Immediately after application, you will notice a “Rainbow Effect” (More prevalent on dark colors) while the applied coating bonds to the surface. Roughly 1-3 min after application, the "Rainbowing" will start to turn into a haze/fog, this means the coating is ready for removal. (Temperature and humidity will expedite the flash time. Test a small area first before continuing onto the rest of the vehicle)
Using premium microfiber towels (Preferably our Utility Towels), thoroughly wipe down the section to remove the Graphene Coating residue. Your first wipe should remove about 80% of the residue, and your second wipe should easily remove the remainder. Use small, circular motions and little to no pressure during removal.
IMPORTANT: Be sure to check adjacent panels to make sure you haven't "pushed" excess coating to other areas. (We recommend using a flashlight or smartphone light for inspection to make sure every bit of residue is gone. If you fail to remove all of the residue during the flash time, it will become a dark spot once it cures and can require polishing or compounding to remove) So be thorough and continue to check your work before moving onto the next step.
Repeat these steps as you move along the rest of your vehicle. Coating the paint, plastics, trim and glass surfaces in the same manner.
Let the coating fully dry/cure for at least 48 hours before allowing it to get wet. The longer it stays dry the better, as it will continue to cure for about 5 days (you CAN drive the car during this time).
Wash and maintain the coating as outlined in our maintenance protocols. www.ethoscarcare.com/coating-maintenance
Graphene Matrix is a professional strength coating and is designed to work on its own. You would not want to pair it with Ceramic Wax Pro as they are different chemistries. Graphene requires more prep work and a slightly more attentive installation than Ceramic Wax PRO but provides a much more durable and long lasting result. Ceramic Wax is for those that want the easiest application possible with minimal work required.
Graphene requires that the paint is completely free and clear of any contaminants or other forms of protection. Its chemistry is designed to work directly with the surface and shed anything on top of it so it would be a stand alone solution.
the shine, gloss, and ease of use is simply second to none. If this last 3+ years I'd be sold for life.
I've used other ceramic coatings and this was by far the easiest to use. The shine, gloss, ease of use is second to none
My experience with Graphene Matrix was great! Starting off I did a heavy decontamination process including a wash and iron remover, followed by a heavy compound on the paint and finished with a polish. Next came applying the Graphene Matrix coat, which went amazing! The application process is very explanatory with the instructions detailing exactly how to apply and lift the coat. Overall an extremely easy coat to apply and results that professionals are happy with and stun the weekend warrior detailer!
Awesome shine, the water repellency is the best I have seen of all the products I have used so far.
After giving the car, an AMG E55 Kompressor, a two stage correction process, I applied the Ethos Detox spray to remove all the compound and oils leftover on the surface so that the Graphene coat bonds to the surface. The Detox was very easy to apply performed it's function perfectly. I then applied the Graphene coating to the cars prepped surface and it was extremely to apply. after about #0 seconds it started to give off a rainbow effect then after about another minute, a hazy appearance. It was at this tme I needed to buff off the excess with the provided cloths. It was very easy to wipe off. Easier than other ceramics I have used. It left a magnificent shine and was very slick. As time past the slickness increased. So I now have a fully protected paint surface with an unbelievable shine and slick as well. A very fantastic product. No problems encounted at all. Extremely satidfied and I highly recommend it. Here's a video of my experience with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ipa72dZRoZ8&t=11s
