Artdeshine BOOST V2 (GRAPHENE) 50ml
Artdeshine BOOST V2 (GRAPHENE) 50ml is the only maintenance coat you should use, ever. User friendly, best in class slickness, all surface and versatile. Durability up to 8 months.
Harnessing the same polymer and graphene technology in Artdeshine’s Nano Graphene Coating, Boost is
extremely easy to use with unbelievable slickness.
Convenience and compatibility with Artdeshine coatings and all surfaces, save your application time.
Multi-purpose function as a maintenance solution and a top coat or as a short-term standalone coating product.
Combining the low thermal conductivity of PDMS and the ability of Graphene Oxide to resist corrosion, Boost helps to reduce the effects of water spotting, etching and harmful chemical reactions caused by contaminants and heat.
Boost’s advanced polymer technology forms a flexible and tensile yet tough coating that bonds extremely well whilst being durable to wear and tear.

Exposure to harsh environmental conditions
Make all necessary preparation like compounding, polishing, claying, decontamination, washing and cleaning before application process. Utilise panel wipes, isopropyl alcohol (IPA), silicone removers to
remove oil, fillers and polishing compounds. (e.g. Artdeshine Silicone Remover/Prep)
Drip 8-10 (16-20 if priming applicator) drops of product by dragging tip of bottle in a straight line to and from on black applicator pad provided (any suede, microfiber applicator block or pads are suitable).
Apply onto surface no larger than 1.5m x 1.5m in circular motion and cross-hatch motion for even coverage.
Applied product should look like spreading liquid glue, not dripping wet.
Product will turn show visible “rainbow” flashes of colors after 15-20 seconds.
Starting from the edges of applied area, wipe off excess with a clean and dry microfiber (MF) towel. (grabby feeling MF towel is normal for this step)
Do not apply product under direct sunlight or a heated surface.
Optimal surface temperature < 25°C.
Optimal ambient temperatures < 32°C
If natural sedimentation occurs, shake the bottle well to evenly disperse the product and wait 1 minute before unscrewing cap slowly to release gas build-up.
Minimise levels of dust, moisture, heat and environment contaminants for maximum bonding effectiveness.
Have sufficient lighting for better visibility of both top facing
surfaces and side facing surfaces. Combination of warm (<3000K) and cool lighting (>4000K) will help with a proper installation.
Have appropriate ventilation systems to avoid inhaling of vapours/gas
No open flames, lighted cigarettes, running ovens or heating devices (blow torches, heat guns etc.)
(Exposure before curing may result in diminished bonding, early deterioration of coating, occurrences of water-spotting, etching or corrosion)
Appearance after curing: Optically transparent, visibly increased reflectivity
N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP), Tetrahydrofuran (THF), Chloroform, Ether.
(the use of products containing these solvents during application causes swelling/gelation)
Products containing solvents such as acetone, 1-propanol, methanol, water, 2-propanol (IPA) in small amounts can be used with no significant impact. (Contact Artdeshine to find out about product compatibility.)
Before application of product, ensure surface is stripped of all existing products (waxes, sealants and spray detailers etc.). Working area should small sections at a time.
Using another clean and dry MF towel, buff off all residue, hazing, high-spots and smears in circular motion.
Check for any remaining high-spots, smearing, uneven colour tones and streaking.
Ensure surface is clear and surface feels slick. (smoothness can be felt when buffing with MF towel)
Repeat step all steps for adjacent areas. Take extra care at edges where applied and un-applied surfaces meet. Always apply and buff over the edges to ensure smooth joining.
Before 7 days with or without infrared assisted curing:
Do not allow surface to come into contact with harsh substances (bird droppings, plant sap, bug splatter, cleaners, shampoos etc.). If contact occurs, wipe gently with damp MF towel or soft napkin
using fresh water.
If substance has dried, place slightly wet MF towel or wet napkin to soften before wiping off gently.
Exposure to rainwater will not affect curing process.
However, ensure that rainwater is not on the surface for prolonged periods by drying with MF towel when weather permits.
Any harsh substances or rainwater on surface exposed to sunlight and heat may cause stains, marks and spotting on uncured coating.
Cleaning can be done with a damp MF towel using fresh water.
Wipe and dry gently.
Cleaning can also be done with Artdeshine Graphene Detailer/GrapheneSeal and Bio Nano in higher dilution (1:19) with fresh water.
Recommended After-Care (After Full Curing)
Every 1-2 weeks:
Washing should be done with pH neutral or paint compatible shampoo. (e.g. Artdeshine Organic Cleaner/AlkClean or Citrus Cleaner/CitrusClean)
Multiple coats is not necessary and can be a wastage of product.
A maximum of 2 coats will be more than sufficient and to cover any missed out areas and enhance coating mechanical strength, additional layers do not represent increased durability.
To apply multiple coats of NGC, allow 2 hours (tropical/humid) or 12 hours (temperate/dry) in between coats.
Do not apply other coating, sealant, wax and spray detailer products immediately before and after application as this will affect the performance and bonding of NGC.
Any issues should be resolved using above methods in the first 15 minutes after application as the coating will not have started curing.
Last resort removal 1 hour after application can be done with Artdeshine Silicone Remover/Prep or any panel wipes and IPA.
After 24 hours, any issues will have to be resolved by removal of the coating and re-applying. This can be done with a polishing machine using fine pads and compounds.
Do not allow surface to be exposed to rain or water.
Do not allow surface to come into contact with harsh substances (bird droppings, plant sap, bug splatter, cleaners, shampoos etc.). If contact occurs, gently clean with damp MF towel or soft napkin using fresh water. Wipe dry with another dry MF towel or soft napkin.
Recommended After-Care (Before Full Curing)
Before 0.5 hour (infrared assisted) or 2 hours:
Every 1-2 months (user preference):
Washing can be done with Alkali shampoo (e.g. Artdeshine Organic
Cleaner/AlkClean) no more than pH 12 for deeper cleansing and
removal of oils/traffic film. Oil trapped in the pores or on the surface
will affect the water repellence performance. Application of ceramic spray sealants. (e.g. Artdeshine Bio Nano or Graphene Detailer/GrapheneSeal)
Every 4-6 months:
Removal of embedded contaminants using fine grade clay bars or cloth. This is important in keeping the surface smooth and slick. A rough surface will affect the water repellence performance.
Application of ceramic spray sealants. (e.g. Artdeshine Bio Nano or Graphene Detailer/GrapheneSeal) for slickness, gloss and water repellent properties.
Do not apply any other coating, wax or sealant products as additional or top coats unless recommended by Artdeshine as it may affect or alter the performance of NGC. Water soluble products like spray sealants are milder and more suitable. More information on product compatibility or other Artdeshine products for after-care is available through your distributors or contact Artdeshine directly for more information.
