I wrote this on another forum and I am going to transfer it here. Products: Adams UV Ceramic Paint Coating Adams UV Ceramic Spray Coating Adams Ceramic Boost Adams UV Light Short description of each product Ceramic Boost is the maintenance product for the coatings.

Solvent based ceramic spray coating 10-12 month durability Can be used on paint, glass, headlights, tonneau covers, soft tops,chrome, trim, wheels, bed liners Max layers is 3 Can be seen with 395 UV light Does not glow in the dark UV light is used for the coatings. It is 396 NM with 100 LED UV Blacklights. Requires 6 AA batteries. I applied to a silver hood which is my test panel for the product. Prepped with 3D ACA finishing polish and prep wiped with Americana Global Stripper. Application is pretty straight forward. Same technique used for any other coating. This is one where I just spread the product and it can be seen under the light. I divided the hood into three sections. The ceramic boost does not contain the glow technology. So it will not show any change under the light. After pulling the tape back we can see that both the spray and paint coating react to the light. You will notice the darkening effect is more pronounced for the paint coating under the UV light. This is the transition point to the area where Ceramic Boost was applied. From a distance the coated areas are clearly shown with the UV light. Notice the over spray from misting onto the surface. Final thoughts on application: From an application stand point the paint coating is pretty straightforward to use. Easy to spread out and easy to wipe off. Feels slick upon removal. It did take me a few extra passes to have even coverage of the coating. After that I understood how the product behaved at the temperature and humidity I was working with. The spray coating is easy to work with. Simply mist the applicator and spread the product out. I misted on the panel and got a little overspray. This is always a concern and thus using an applicator is the best method to avoid over spray. It does not take long for it to flash for it to be wiped off. The ceramic boost is very easy to work with. Simply wipe and wipe off. An easy product to maintain either of these coatings. In terms of slickness it is ceramic boost, the spray coating and then the paint coating. I was not sure how long the effect under the UV light stays around. But after reading more about the coating it appears that it will be visible under the UV light specked out by Adams. It will not be seen in the daylight or glow at night. Overall it is a good way to see if the coating is applied to an area or the potential of a high spot being left behind. A good coating for anyone worried about those things especially first timers. One thing about Adams is that their products are user friendly. I can not comment on durability just yet. That test will come later. It is an interesting characteristic and kudos to Adams for thinking outside the box to differentiate their coatings. A couple application videos. Part 3 is a little long as it includes the application of the spray coating, ceramic boost and I share my final thoughts on application.
