Graphene Coatings are fairly new to the detailing industry, and the next level of paint protection since Ceramic Coatings. They are harder, extremely heat resistant, and more durable against chemicals, water spots, and contaminants. They can also be applied on any hard surface inside or outside of your vehicle.

How are graphene coatings better than ceramic coatings?

WHAT IS GRAPHENE?
Graphene is known as a one-atom-thick two-dimensional sheet of carbon that is tightly packed into a honey-comb like lattice as illustrated above. Basically, graphene can be described as a single layer of graphite, the mineral you are familiar with. Before graphite is converted to graphene, it is soft, flexible, and extremely heat resistant. After converted to graphene it becomes the thinnest, and strongest material in the world, but it is flexible which makes it a great addition to the automotive paint coating industry.
WHY IS GRAPHENE STILL CALLED A CERAMIC COATING?
Graphene by itself, will not form a coating. Graphene is a flat non-reactive plane, and will not form a bond with other things. So graphene coatings are coatings with graphene molecules grafted on the ceramic backbone. If you look at the image of the graphene oxide below, the tails you see sticking up are what is grafted onto the Graphene Ceramic molecule. The Ceramic molecule bonds with your vehicles paint, and the graphene portion of the molecule is on top, forming the surface of the coating. Graphene can actually bond to any material throughout your vehicle.
