    I use Mothers CMX ceramic spray after I wash my truck . It helps keep the professional ceramic coating that was applied 3 yrs ago looking good

    I like to apply CARPRO Reset every couple of months to help protect the ceramic.

    Would that be good if a graphene coating was used?

    Sorry for the late reply, my 30 day ban just ended :rofl:

    I don't see a problem using a silicon based sealant on top of a graphene sealant. SiO2 sealants are really just a 1-2nm thick piece of glass that you apply to your paint. That's why they only last a 1-3 months with regular washes.

    I actually use 2nm of SiO2 to seal nano optics devices that I've developed to protect them from corrosion.

    Proper care is how to make coating last longer.

    like any proper paint care. Avoid automatic care washes. Use a proper wash and drying technique. You can utilize a ceramic booster to keep the hydrophobic properties.

    Like I said up above, I use Carpro reset every couple months to protect the ceramic. Also, wash with a ph balanced soap using microfiber towels and a 2 bucket method. Look up some youtube videos for ideas

    For anyone that's ceramic coated their truck and goes off roading, especially if there's mud, does the mud come off easier with ceramic coating? I have a friend who went mudding in his 3rd gen 4Runner and drove home (about 1.5 hours) right after without spraying down the mud and when he tried to spray it off at home, it was stuck on there good.
