The low thermal conductivity of Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) and corrosion resistance of reduced Graphene Oxide (rGO) will help to reduce chemical reactions of contaminants aggravated by heat and UV that can otherwise result in etching, water-spotting and staining.
Graphene is said to be a “miracle material” due to an abundance of beneficial properties. While expensive to manufacture, there are alternative forms of it that offers identical performance like reduced graphene oxide (rGO). The compatibility of rGO and polymer matrixes allows us to offer you a revolutionary product that is Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based with rGO added. Combining the functionality and benefits of both PDMS and rGO unprecedented in the automotive care industry, Artdeshine’s Nano Graphene Coating provides you with a reliable and effective surface protection solution.
Combining the low thermal conductivity of PDMS and the ability of rGO to disperse heat quickly, the cooler surface reduces the effects of water etching, corrosion and harmful chemical reactions.
With polymer (PDMS) coatings already highly tensile, durable and flexible when absorbing daily wear and tear, the addition of rGO to a polymer matrix creates a composite material and reinforces these properties.
A smooth surface reduces friction, thus lowering the amount of force created by abrasive actions that can otherwise cause fine-lines and scratches. This results in significantly less damage caused during washing and drying.

It is very easy to apply, gives a very slick and shiny car. Very easy to wash, has now treated the paint with Artdeshine Maintenance for the winter here in Norway. Can only wait and see how long the coating will last on mine BMW X3
I have been detailing cars for more than 30 years constantly trying the latest and greatest as an avid "Car Guy" and this coating has me smiling every time I casually walk by my AMG and run my finger along a quarter panel. The application is not for the faint of heart - I have done a lot of paint protection, correction and work on vehicles over the years and this application had me worried. It goes on thick and takes more time than most protection coatings. After a long "application event" = many hours prepping and then making sure all areas were properly coated - The next morning I went to admire my work and see how things might have cured into a beautiful luster, I found streaks and dark areas all over the car. Be sure you have remaining product to work out all the areas because you will have some. Or get the finishing/leveling product and work out the areas before this stuff fully cures. Again - this is not for the first timer!! The instructions are basic and little to no "how to care for the Graphene coating" Only time will tell how this new technology will hold up - crossing fingers it will be a long time as the initial application was a lot of work. Satisfying work and final results but still a lot of work to get it right. Allow yourself a lot of time, great lighting and an extra set of eyes to help find any areas that might need some attention.
I love the slick feel of Artdeshone Nano Graphene. Ceramic coatings are grabby but graphene is definitely not! I love going to the car wash and only using water without scrub brush to get the car flawlessly clean and shiny!
