[Canadian Tire] Nu Finish Graphene Coating $23.39

This is a new product. I recently bought it and it works really well, I think I like this better than the turtle wax hybrid ceramic.

Crazy hydrophobic

graphene coating is supposed to stronger than ceramic, especially hybrid ceramic.

Tempting deal

Ah good ol' New Finish, jumpin' on the Graphene Bandwagon for some new-found resurgence/clout :lol:

And it's really more of a resurgence than TW had with their ceramic line, since I mean who has used NuFinish anything, in the past 30 years? lol TW at least had some semi-well-regarded products still going. Then again NuFinish is just a brand owned by some holdings corp these days so who knows what other brands they have that are related.

Anyway the new graphene craze may be there and the product may be great but unfortunately you buy two bottles of TW ceramic before and then the next thing comes along and you buy that. Now you have two bottles of the "old stuff" and more bottle(s) of new stuff. This must explain all the different polishes, waxes, sealants, I still have from years gone by :lol:

Now I'm just gonna wait until they start making entire cars out of ceramic instead of getting into the next thing every year or two lol.

I think I'll grab a bottle, I always use a spray wax and hand dry my car and I'm almost out. I'll try this instead. It is much cheaper than other sprays including graphene at the moment.

So the rain doesn't ruin your shiny clean paint finish.
But the ultimate goal is to protect your paint from UV and road debris, just like wax.
It's just a new type of a car wax.

It makes water run off instead of sticking and drying, and anything that dissolves or stick to water runs off too. That makes your car stay cleaner for longer. It also looks kinda neat when it gets wet.

Probably somewhat yeah, though it's no miracle. You can just kinda rinse your car off and it'll usually get gunk of pretty easily though. Personally I think that this property is more of a 'bonus' than essential to a coating, but it does help with appearance and ease of use and maintenance.

I don't know what you're talking about nufinish is awesome. It makes a fantastic base coat that lasts forever.

Do a coat of it wait 24 hours do another one and then you can put wax or whatever you want on top of it.

I've used it on everything from my GMC Sierra to my Mustang GT premium.

Fantastic protection

Nu Finish is owned by Energizer. Up until then it was family owned.

Just watched a comparison. The graphene one lasts a year and does a better job making water slide off, but the ceramic lasts up to 100 washes ...this guy did a test and so I'll go with their ceramic coating for $1 less and also 'on sale' at crappy tire

Agreed, Nu-Finish is underrated, easy to apply and lasts for months.

You can just leave it as the outer coat it ends up looking like a Polish.

if you want the deep look you have to put wax over top of it polish and wax always have a different look.

For an everyday car nufinish is more than enough by itself to make it look good
