Adam’s Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating is going to be the winner in terms of overall protection and length of durability per application in this comparison, but both Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating and CS3 can be used on the same amount of surfaces and provide the same water-repellent hydrophobic behavior that is so amazing with ceramic-based products. Neither product will be scratch-resistant or prevent rock chips, but what they do offer is a much easier way to clean vehicles in follow-up washes, give incredible levels of gloss and shine, and provide an easy way for anyone to get their feet wet with ceramic-based products if they were hesitant in the past.
After either CS3 or Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating have been applied to the vehicle surface, maintenance is fairly straight-forward after that. With CS3, you can use it as a drying aid when you perform a full Two Bucket Wash routine by lightly misting into onto panels as you dry with the Ultra Plush Drying Towel, or you can use it with no additional water and several Waterless Wash Waffle Weave Microfiber Towels to clean vehicles with light to moderate dirt buildup. CS3 can also serve as a topper on a ceramic coated vehicle, much like Graphene Boost.
Maintenance on Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating is easy too - wash as you normally would with one of our shampoos, and then you can re-up a little more protection with CS3 or Graphene Boost. Once you are ready to apply a new layer of Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating, we would recommend to wash, dry, and then use Surface Prep with a clean Borderless Grey Towel on all areas to be treated before reapplying the coating. If the surface is showing signs of light scratching and swirl marks, now is also the time where you would decide if you want to polish the area out again before coating - in this case, our white Polish and White Foam Pad might be enough to polish it back to near-perfect before protecting the finish again.
WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Now that we’ve covered the similarities and differences between CS3 and Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating, you may still have trouble deciding which is right for you. If you are looking for quick and easy protection that you will need to apply more frequently, CS3 is the way to go, but if you are looking for more long-term durability, applying only once or twice a year, Graphene Ceramic Spray Coating would be the better fit. With respect to cost per use, CS3 is going to be more affordable than Ceramic Spray Coating or the UV Ceramic Spray Coating, but you will be using CS3 more frequently, so cost expense works out to be about the same. We provide a full break-down of several comparison factors in the chart below.
