Aftercare & Warranty Information

Congratulations! Your car is now protected with the global leader in graphene surface protection with the highest concentration of graphene versus other competitors. SPS graphene is designed to protect your factory clear coat from the elements and to keep your vehicle looking mint at all times. To maximize the effects and to ensure your investment is long lasting, we will discuss a few basic maintenance steps on how to care for your new coating. With simple care, your graphene coating will reward you for years to come!

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Wash As Often As You Need To  

With Graphene coatings, sometimes less is more. When you start to notice building on the surface, we recommend a simple wash with a mild soap (preferably PH neutral) to prevent excessive build-up from road contaminants. During winter season, road salt build up may temporarily affect the coating's performance therefore washing more often in this season is recommended before any excessive buildup occurs. Think of your coating like glass in your shower. When the glass is clean, the water will run off the surface nicely, but over time as soap builds on the surface, the water will start to “stick”. Once you clean the glass, the water will start to bead off again. Your Graphene coating is no different and will require some maintenance to preserve and prolong the coating.  

A Quick, Gentle Wash Is Best  

If you’re washing at home, a soft mitt and gentle automotive soap are best, followed by a rinse with a garden hose or pressure washer. A touch-less car wash is a great option too, but only choose the basic package that offers a quick wash with no added waxes, sealants or any add-on. Never use brushes from a local coin wash as they are abrasive enough to damage your vehicle. You have already protected your vehicle with the most advanced coating in the industry, so there is no need to pay extra for a spray-on wax. Spray on waxes can clog up the pores of the coatings limiting the hydrophobic properties and leaving a white powdery residue behind. While Graphene coatings are very strong, it’s still best to avoid anything abrasive that could scratch the surface, such as brushes (especially ones at the local car wash) or clay bars.  Lastly, dry your vehicle thoroughly after wash to avoid water spots. Although, graphene coatings are very resistant to water spotting using tap water to rinse the soap off can leave mineral deposits behind if it’s left to dry on its own. You shouldn’t need to use excessive pressure, let the cloth absorb the water and then follow up with a second cloth to dry the car completely. Because of the coating's hydrophobic properties, this entire process is significantly easier than an uncoated car. 

Stay on top of your maintenance washes

To get the absolute best results from your Graphene coating, we recommend bringing the vehicle back to an authorized graphene installer for a thorough maintenance wash every four months. The maintenance wash includes a thorough exterior decontamination and rejuvenating the coating with SPS graphene detailer. This service must be done at least once a year to avoid voiding the warranty.  
 

The first week

During the first week, your SPS Graphene coating is going through its natural curing process. While your coating is curing, the use of detergents or soaps is not recommended. By using these before your coating has completely cured, you could damage and reduce its effectiveness and life span. If you need to remove any harmful surface contaminants such as bugs, tar, sap, or bird droppings, we recommend using a hose or pressure washer followed by a soft microfiber towel if needed. We always recommend drying the surfaces after to prevent hard water spots.
