Like I mentioned in that other thread, another contrived application for the substance that has no real uses. This one is particularly goofy.

I have no idea what you're talking about, but I do know something about graphene. I spent nearly 10 years of my life in a corporate research laboratory studying carbon chemistry, and graphene is indeed a wandering soul looking for some relevant application. This is not one of them.

What on earth is graphene doing in an automotive detailing product?

This is some ridiculous, specious marketing.

Another scheme to separate fools from their money.

Let the Pro Detailers be the judge. Product is new Ceramic was the big talk in town with detailers time will tell if graphene is marketing or not.

What does graphene do in a detailing product to enhance it, if any. I think that is the question.

Product is still new most of those haven't tried it of course anytime something is new like that you'll have a negative feedback some have pride, detailing can be very personal emotional thing for professionals . Time will tell I don't go over board over it but if a product does as claim I'll be looking into it.

You sound like a supermarket type but that's alright. There are a lot of excellent products on the market I'm not in a rush these type of (graphene) products need to have reviews from the Pro's to kick in just like ceramic stuff see like Turtle Wax hybrid ceramic on a consumer level.

Prices are high now but with competition and consumer demand prices will go down.

Prices will go down when people find out that graphene doesn’t make any difference.

By criticizing other members who aren’t “professional” detailers, but have degrees in chemistry, you simply prove my contention:

this is marketing.
