Adam’s CS3 is a ceramic infused modern presentation of an active three-in-one waterless wash detailer. Adam’s CS3 was designed to effortlessly deliver a clean, finished surface, generate a ridiculous amount of shine, and protect using the latest in silica resin technologies. This silica-infused waterless wash formulation delivers a gentle, safe, and effective means of cutting through dirt, dust, grease, and grime while remaining absolutely streak-free each and every time.

Formula Update: We modified a micro-emulsion that is built into the formula and altered the ratio of actives to make the formulation slicker, glossier, even less prone to streaking, improved durability, and better hydrophobic behavior. In short, we made everything about it better with a few simple tweaks!

  • Ceramic Infused Spray Coating
  • Easy to Apply and Use – Spray On/Wipe Off
  • Adds Depth, Gloss, Slickness and Clarity
  • Cuts through Dirt, Dust, Grease, Grime and other Contaminants
  • Lubricates without Smearing, Streaking or Scratching

C3, worth it!

Awesome For 30 years I’ve used carnuba waxes, which last only a short time. It takes forever to apply it and it’s a pita. This stuff, takes it to another level. Wash your whatever thoroughly, dry it and apply C-3. It’ll take a fraction of the time and it actually lasts. I’m impressed, I’ll keep buying it as long as you’re making it.

CS3 is Great

This product works very well. I've been using the "PINK" Detail Spray for a long time and thought it couldn't be beat. After attending Corvette's at Carlisle and hearing how good CS3 was I decided to give it a try. It goes on quick and easy and gives the finish a brilliant and deep gloss. I recently took a 600 mile trip and it rained for about 300 of those miles. I noticed the water beading and basically flying off the hood. I expected the truck would be a mess but to my surprise after returning home the truck appeared to be just washed. I'm applying another application of CS3 soon after I go over the truck with some Waterless Wash just to make sure its good and clean. This product is simply "Great"!

No way

Was at Hot August night’s recently and needed something to clean and shine while up there - lot’s products out there but I stopped by and talked to a rep who showed me this product - tried it on my car and was truly impressed - came back and bought another bottle - and brought a friend with me who did the same - cannot go wrong

 Adam’s CS3 is more durable than conventional waxes or sealants and contributes to protection from harmful UV rays and the elements. This relentlessly hydrophobic formulation produces a highly self-cleaning surface and is safe and effective on all substrates including paint, glass, wheels, plastic, rubber molding, and chrome – whether already coated or not!

Adam’s CS3 is uniquely formulated using a proprietary blend of cleaning surfactants, lubricating polymers, chelates, natural emulsifiers, and silica film-formers to engineer a detailer that has to be tried to be believed – no additional water required!


  1. Inspect paint for larger dirt particles or grit. Do not use Adam’s CS3 on extremely dirty finishes.
  2. Spray product liberally onto the area to be cleaned, starting from the top and work down.
  3. Using our bright blue waffle-weave Waterless Wash Towel, or a plush towel of your choice, lightly wipe the towel across the surface.
  4. Rotate the towel to a fresh side and repeat, working in straight lines. Worktop to bottom, leaving the lower sections last.
  5. Use additional towels as necessary once all clean sides have been expended or saturated.

What’s the difference between this and Adam’s Ceramic Waterless? While these are similar, we have tweaked the formulation and repositioned the marketing to expand this amazing technology to a larger market. In our current Ceramic Waterless, we market a similar formulation as a maintenance product as a part of a larger system. The reality is, we’ve been able to tweak and develop a special blend that deserves a standalone product that isn’t just part of a system. This formula was designed to be used on coated & uncoated vehicles and is a modern take on a 3-in-1 detailer with silica-film formers, emulsifying agents, shine agents, lubricating polymers, chelates and more. In short, we’ve smashed the technology of Ceramic Waterless & Ceramic Boost together to bring a truly incredible all-in-one experience.
