By integrating graphene-oxide to our ceramic chemistry we are able to improve the characteristics of our coatings. Essentially what this means is the product has a ceramic element (SiO2), which bonds to your gelcoat or paint while the graphene-oxide portion of the formula forms the surface layer of the coating.
This in turn forms a strong bond creating the ultimate protection. We took our highly active solar defense formula which is the perfect candidate for the quirks of porous gelcoat and incorporated our reduced graphene-oxide to give you this easy to use amphibious coating.
No longer do you need to carry several different coatings in your arsenal to tackle every surface on your car or boat. We found the sweet spot of active Graphene to provide you with this one covers all Amphibious Coating.
Caring for your solar graphene coating is similar to any traditional ceramic coating. Since, the base is ceramic you can use SiO2 products. Bubblebath makes the perfect soap to care for your graphene coating.
Also, using Graphene Refresh whenever you wash your car or boat while drying will help preserve and maintain your graphene coating.
Lastly, on a quarterly basis be sure to go around your boat with our popular Graphene Glow and semi-annually on cars.
By following these measures you will enjoy YEARS not months of the best protection money can buy for your car or boat.
Graphene vs. Ceramic
- 10H coating for land & sea
- Multi-surface uses – safe on virtually any surface; paint, gelcoat, glass, plastics, metals, and upholstery.
- Reduced water-spotting and resistance to staining
- Improved depth of gloss
- Increased contact angle (meaning water slides off better)
- Even easier application and leveling
- More flexible than traditional ceramic coatings
- 18-24 months of protection on boats, 7 years on cars
- 9H coating used primarily on marine surfaces
- Works best on gelcoat and painted surfaces
- High gloss
- Easy application
- Great UV protection
- Barrier against oxidation
- Amazing hydrophobic properties
- 18-24 months of protection on boats, 4-5 years on cars
- Fully correct the gelcoat or paint to rid it of any oxidation and defects and bring it as close to 100% as possible.
- Use an IPA solution to wipe down the entire car or boat to remove any oils, waxes and residues left behind, this is to ensure a proper bond of the coating to the surface.
- Shake bottle
- Apply several drops to the applicator pad. Start with a 3’x3’ section, work the coating in a cross hatch pattern.
- The coating will rainbow as it gasses and begins the flashing process. Once the coating starts to sweat (bead) it has flashed and is ready to be leveled. Level the coating with two microfiber towels (a lead and finish towel) to remove all of the coating.
- If any high spots are left, apply a drop or two to the applicator pad to reactivate the coating and level.
- Allow 24hrs for coating to cure free from water.
- Enjoy your car or boat!
How Many Coats Should I Apply?
We always recommend applying two coats. This ensures even coverage and especially on porous surfaces you have built up enough thickness to obtain optimal results.
Anything over 3 coats is redundant and will not have any additional benefits.
How Do I Care For My Graphene Coating?
Caring for your coating is simple. Be sure to use a PH Neutral soap for starters, we use Bubblebath.
You can incorporate Graphene Refresh into your weekly washing regiment while drying to keep the hydrophobics 100%.
On a quarterly basis apply a layer of Graphene Glow to ensure there is a good layer of graphene kept on the car or boat.
What Happens If I Leave A High Spot?
Have no fear. If you discover a high spot within 20 minutes of applying Solar Graphene, simply go over the spot again with a drop or two of graphene on your applicator to reactivate the coating. This will allow you to level it and eliminate the high spot.
What is the cure time?
Avoid getting the car or boat wet for the first 48hrs. The product fully cures in 5 days so avoid washing your car or boat for the first week.
