  1. Firs I just want to say I am a long time Adam's user. I remember when his product line was Detail Spray, Swirl & Haze Remover, Buttery Wax Undercarriage Spray and a few different types of Micro Fiber towels. I also was always a polish and wax type of detailer. Old school I guess. Well about a year ago I decide to try the Ceramic Spray coating because I knew I could remove it a lot easier then the full 3-5 year coating. I will admit I was a little skeptical but went for it any way. Now this was Adam's first Ceramic Spray coating that came in the kit of Surface Prep, Ceramic Coating an

    What did you do today?

    Let me guess what everyone did today! Sometimes I hate that my wife is such a good cook, because I'm so damn full right now that I'm miserable. Just me and her this year, kids both stayed home, one is in Maryland, the other just lives a few blocks away and he came and picked up his dinner. Taking precautions so that hopefully we'll all be together next year. Still have pie to look forward to tonight and hot turkey sandwiches for dinner tomorrow night. Tradition. I hope you all had a good turkey day, or whatever you ate (my brother had ham). Watch some football tonig

    Adam's Standard Step Stool

    I ran out to the garage and took some pics. They're not great, but you can see what it's like opened up and the measurements. Hope it helps you. The second pic, there's a smaller stool underneath the Adam's stool, but I think you can see the Adam's stool okay. Didn't feel like moving the car for a better pic. These things are a necessity if you have a truck or SUV. If it's something you're considering, I wouldn't hesitate. They're a great addition and a lot better than the small stool I had before. Oh, and there are steps on the legs so you don't have to "jump" un 20" to get on it.

  13. Yep, as Michael and Chris stated, you can re-use towels with Graphene Detail Spray without issue, as long as you wash and maintain the towels properly. A little more in-depth for anyone curious... Products that we DO NOT recommend re-using towels or applicators after application: - Ceramic Paint Coating 50ml - Ceramic Wheel Coating 50ml - Ceramic Black Trim Restorer 50ml - Graphene Ceramic Coating 60ml The coatings above can and will harden into the towels and applicators, and you will be able to feel them become more coarse. They can absolutely scratch vehicles

  16. So being honest I am a big fan of Adams products but have not had decent longevity with anything they sell. LPS, Patriot, etc. I even had bad results with an Adams ceramic job which in my opinion was caused by improper instructions after a product change in Adams original ceramic. Actually, I was told this by customer service. It left a bad taste in my mouth for Adams protection products and I was led to another brand that was a hybrid ceramic spray wax. Was cheap, easy to apply and in my opinion worked as well as anything Adams I had used. Because of my results with

  17. Wow! what a great community and thanks for the welcome. I took advantage of the black friday sale and have a SK 15mm and polish kit on the way. I tried the brilliant glaze today - that combined with a little time and driving seems to have slightly diminished the rainbow of the headlights. Difficult to tell because today was sunnier than the overcast day from the photos. I will try the small drops of polish next when it gets here. Couple of clarifications: 1. Yes I did try the instant re-activation method initially as per the Adams videos when I saw the rainbow after I wiped

    Detail Apron

    I've got a black one with the old logo on it. The logo's different than the one Adam's wearing in the post above. It appears larger and has an American Flag background behind the text. I'm thinking 2012/13ish? I doubt I'd purchased it, it might have been given to those of us that did beta testing back then. It's a canvas type material, and has a large pocket on each side.

    Graphine coating, "shadows"

    Hi JB, and welcome to the forum! I'll try to address all of your questions the best I can. 1. This can occur with our Graphene Ceramic Coating and UV Ceramic Paint Coating on darker colored vehicles from my experience; however I did have some of them on a red metallic Chevy SS I did a while back too (UV Paint Coating, not Graphene Ceramic Coating). The UV LED Light will make this much more visible shortly after application, but the lines usually show up if the coating was not wiped away thoroughly enough - usually they will show up in an overcast or cloudy sky and it will look perfect in th

    Several years back, Adam's had this guide available. I think it's PAST time they do another one! This should be a staple on the site, updated as needed. Maybe even one for non ceramic use, and one for Ceramic and Graphene use.

  27. I agree with Rich - our Graphene Ceramic Coating isn't going to repel dust or be completely anti-static, but it will provide excellent protection and gloss to the paint, glass, etc. To me, I'm not a chemist, but wiping a static-charged microfiber towel onto the surface of the vehicle sometimes seems to leave a charge on the surface that might attract more dust, so I hold two corners of the towel and give the towel a quick snap to try to discharge any static before use - you'll notice this most after pulling a clean towel out of the dryer. UV protection mostly comes from UV inhibitors in the

  31. Hi there, and welcome to the forum! It sounds like your prep work was spot on, and goes above and beyond what most would do, so I applaud you for that. My hunch for why you aren't seeing the proper longevity of the coating would be that it was wiped away too quickly after being applied to the surface, since you stated you allowed it to rainbow and then removed the residue. Our spray coatings will rainbow, or flash, almost immediately after hitting the surface as they are exposed to oxygen, in as little as 10 to 30 seconds sometimes; however I usually let the product set up for at l

  32. Chris and Rich already got this one, but yes absolutely shake it up very thoroughly before opening to mix it uniformly. This goes for all 3 of our graphene products - Graphene Ceramic Coating, Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating, and Graphene Detail Spray. I will see if we can have this added to the instructions.

    Shake Graphene Coating?

    Thanks Rich and Chris. I feel silly even asking the question, but I’ve never used the Graphene coating and I didn’t see shaking it called out in the instructions. So really just wanting to make sure and also know it’s a normal thing to see the dark particles in the bottom versus a uniform look. Thanks again fellas!

    Its time to Ceramic Coat

    You would need to machine polish out the scratch, and that should remove the coating in that area. Once it scratch is gone, prep the affected area and reapply the coating.

    Hi @William A Posada Jr, welcome to the forum! I'm going to move this thread into the appropriate section so that it gets more views and input. Several of our products can be used safely on vinyl wraps! I'll make all of the products listed below into clickable links, so that it will take you right to the product page with more information for each one. If you have a matte or satin finish wrap on your vehicle, our blue Car Shampoo, Mega Foam Shampoo, Waterless Wash, Rinseless Wash, and Matte Detailer are all safe for cleaning. If you have a gloss finish wrap on your vehicle, the list o

  38. In August 2019, I put Ceramic Spray Coating on this picket and while it has had regular maintenance, I was going to redo it this weekend. After a looking at the truck this morning, I decided that I would do a good wash, touch up a few spots and a fresh layer of Slick & Slide. After Christmas a few new items that I'm pretty confident are being added to the truck, we'll strip it down and do a wheels off recoat with Graphene. In the background you can see one of my dogwood trees that have changed colors - to brown.

    I'd like to have both a ceramic and non-ceramic to post as signs in my garage. It would not only give an explanation for people who don't get it, but also show that using Adam's is a process to ensure you get the desired results.

    Have you tried gasket rubber? Sometimes they call it red rubber gasket, but it's sold in sheets and it's cheap and works. Or I found these at Home Depot. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Shepherd-2-in-Anti-Skid-Pads-8-Pack-9971/202514361 or these https://www.homedepot.com/p/Shepherd-2-in-Brown-Smooth-Rubber-Furniture-Cups-4-per-Pack-89076/100190187 I just have a bare concrete floor in my garage, and a paved driveway, so my stool doesn't slide. But I can see where it might on painted floors.

    Are these the same?

    Hi Matthew, depending on the manufacturing dates, the 4oz and 8oz bottles of Ceramic Boost might be version 1 of the formula or version 2 (current) of the formula. The white 12oz bottle with the Ceramic Line label is absolutely version 2. Gallons and half gallons of Ceramic Boost are all version 2 as well. Version 2, the current version, began shipping out in August of 2018. For the Ceramic Spray Coating bottles, those are the same formula, with the white 8oz bottle being a newer bottle design when we launched the full ceramic line in March of 2019. Ceramic Spray Coating was updated when we
