Ceramic Quick Detailer
Color Crush is a unique quick detailing technology, which combines a Cross-Linked Pre-cured Polymer with Si02 into one quick detailing spray. This fusion binds to paint and other surfaces better than anything we have mixed to date and makes existing sealants and ceramic coatings more durable.
The combination of ingredients in Color Crush Quick Detailer Spray goes on quickly and buffs off super easy. You can do an entire car in just minutes and achieve a slick, hydrophobic, deep glossy shine. The water beading produced by Color Crush and other ceramic spray coatings is amazing and it so versatile that you can use it on paint, chrome, windows for rain protection, and wheels to help keep brake dust at bay.
Car washes and harsh detergents are like Kryptonite to Si02, breaking it down quickly. We eliminated this problem by combining the Si02 with ingredients that are impervious to such assaults and will continue to protect the paint finish for months, even under the harshest circumstances.
When to use Color Crush Ceramic Spray Detailer
Before a car show, a night on the town, or just for a little mental therapy, you will find the glass-smooth finish and shine to be quite addicting, making you want to spray it on everything you own: motorcycles, R.V.s, Boats, Jet Skis, Mountain Bikes. Color Crush Quick Detailer will give new life to any finish and help keep it clean longer. It is so slick; it will reduce dust, water spots, and dirty water residue. It is also great as an after wash drying agent. Just spray it on the paint while it is still wet and buff dry.
A quick spray on plastic trim helps reduce fading and cracking and leaves the plastic-looking revitalized and hydrated. U.V. inhibitors help stop fading and cracking.

What is the Best Quick Detailer Spray?
We often get asked: "What is the best quick detail spray I can use on my car?". Naturally, we are a bit biased when it comes to this question, as we unequivocally believe, Lithium produces the best detail spray ever formulated with our Color Crush ceramic spray detailer - just ask our Mom's :) However, if we go back to "Unbiased" it really comes down to the ingredients in the spray detailing product. Instant Detail Sprays (IDS) were originally pretty simple, containing Surfactants for cleaning and a polymer 'or two' for shine. These basic ingredients were pretty good at adding a quick boost to the shine on your car's paint. Over time though, capitalism started to kick in - razors went from one blade to eight, and quick detailers got mixed with everything from hair tonic to lord knows what else, to try and gain a marketing edge. Don't get us wrong, quick detail sprays have come a long way and are markedly better than when they were first introduced and offer some great value and protection for the money. We just knew that there had to be a better quick detail spray that could take the benefits of the first quick detailing sprays and level them up. We figured with better ingredients and technology we could improve durability, shine, and hydrophobics that traditional quick detailers could not touch.
The ingredients mean everything to us here at Lithium Auto Elixirs, as we have always taken the approach that "if you make the surface healthy the shine will follow". With this as our compass, we always formulate our car detailing products with additives and car care ingredients that automotive paint needs to stay in good health over the long run. Given the fact that quick detail sprays are usually always the topcoat of a good car detailing regimen, the goal for our formula was to stave off harmful pollutants and U.V. Rays first and foremost. However, we found one of the major weaknesses of most quick detailers was their longevity, they were usually gone after only a single car wash or rain shower. So when we mixed Color Crush quick detailer, we added things to increase its life span like Si02 (the primary ingredient of ceramics) which is amazingly hard and holds up well to high PH car washes. While SiO2 technology in our pray detailer is a game-changer, you cannot forget to do the paint prep work with a clay bar kit and paint correction. If your car's paint has defects or contamination all over it, no quick detailer will be able to work 100% as it was developed to do. So don't go putting a mink on a pig, polish your vehicle to remove scratches and contamination before just going Rambo with a ceramic spray detailer.
Below is a checklist of what makes a good quick detailer like Color Crush!
- It contains polymers for increased shine and deflection of bird droppings, road salt, fallout, and other pollutants and contaminants
- It is packed with U.V. inhibitors for added protection from the Sun's rays
- Surfactants help with mild cleaning and waterless washing capabilities
- Packed with Sio2 ceramic additives for longevity, hydrophobic enhancements, and a little shine boost that traditional quick detailers cannot duplicate
So this is how we pack every bottle of Color Crush with one or two secret sauces (in this case two) which also refract light for an amazing shine and make the surface as slick as possible. This makes Color Crush one of the best ceramic spray detailers on the market for the hobbyist that wants to pamper his Sunday driver or the detailing professional that wants to give their clients an added level of protection without the cost of a traditional ceramic coating.
When Should You Use a Quick Detailer Spray?
As you can imagine "When ? Where and How Should I Use a Quick Detail Spray?" are always the follow-up questions that come directly after talking about high-quality detail sprays. The good thing about a ceramic quick detailer is, they are very stackable, meaning one layer will sit on top of the previous layer, each one adding a bit more protection, shine, and slickness to the painted surface. However, the key to stacking these types of products is to make sure you allow sufficient time for each coat to cure before adding an additional one. Otherwise, what you will get is smearing and not stacking. Smearing or streaking is when the first coat has not had time to dry and you start rubbing on a second coat. Think of car detailing products much in the same way you would approach using spray paint which is several thin coats, with some dry time in between provides a far better result. We use spray detailers all the time around here, just before the judges come by at a car show, before date night (better than cologne:) and often as a bit of therapy as well. However, the time we feel is the most important is right after washing your car. We like to spray down the surface just before drying the car. This creates a layer of lubrication on the paint surface, which reduces micro scratches (most of which occur on paint during this process) A good detailing spray will also remove any film or residue missed during the wash, also reduce water spotting and make the paint surface shine like the sun. (back the cleaning powers of surfactants) A good detail spray can go on just about any surface as well, windows, plastic, rims, etc. so don't worry about being careful when spraying the car after a good wash. Our Color Crush quick detailer is also an amazing drying agent as you are drying off a vehicle. It can add a layer of protection as you dry and will help lower the chances of getting spider webs and scratches on your client's paint. Ceramic drying agents are just one advantage of ceramic quick detailers. They are off protection as a top coating and during the washing process. So you are getting ceramic protection in two different ways with the same ceramic quick detailer.
Can You Use a Ceramic Spray Detailer On A Car That Has Been Ceramic Coated?
That is a lot like asking if you can use jelly on a piece of bread that has been smeared with peanut butter. The two were made for each other - well not actually but, using a spray detailer as part of your washing regimen will keep your ceramic coating "Boosted" and shining like the day you had it applied. Best to choose a quick detail spray that contains the Si02 like Color Crush, so it is enhancing the ceramic coat and ensuring compatibility. The Sio2 will stack on top of a ceramic coating adding to its hydrophobic capabilities and may add additional months of life to your ceramic paint protection.
Are True Ceramic Coatings Better Than Ceramic Quick Detailers?
This is much like asking if "Gold is better than rubber?" Once again. it depends on what you are trying to achieve. Each one has its place, Gold is far more expensive and has a much higher perception of value, however, it makes for a bad set of running shoes. Ok, that is a stupid analogy, but you get the idea. Quick detailers provide similar things as ceramic ' shine, protection, and resistance to dirt and pollutants, not to mention- very inexpensive. On the other hand, they do not last nearly as long as a true ceramic coating. Here is another thing to think about (controversial as it may sound) we are car guys and we love to polish, shine, improve and drive our cars. It is what brings us pleasure- and the idea of putting a shield on our beloved ride that says "hey I don't you anymore I'm covered" is sort of a bittersweet event. So if waxing and washing is your therapy - does it make sense to part with $800.00 to $1,200.00 bucks to protect your paint? When you can get other products to do the same thing for much cheaper and your codependent relationship can continue as it always has. By the way, Color Crush is only $19.95!
Oh and we can hear the ceramic guys right now, saying how ceramic stops scratches, dents, and provides better gas mileage. Although we have to tell you, we have tried and also blended just about every ceramic combination we know that exists and much of the hype you hear comes with its fair share of embellishment. Videos of Keys and sandpaper being run across the paint surface after a ceramic coat, with zero damage are just not fact. So if you like waxing and buffing, keep doing it. If you have a ceramic coating and still long to engage with your car, throw on some Color Crush ceramic detailer after each wash, you may not sweat as much, but you will still get a high level of satisfaction relative to your efforts and a durable shine that will last longer than most spray detailers. Try some of our Color Crush, you won't be disappointed, and you are, well we will refund your order.
Nothing special. I am disappointed with this product. I had such high expectations, but in reality it was just like spraying water on my car. I saw no benefit from this product.
I absolutely love these products that lithium has created, I am a new detailer. Still waiting for a few orders to arrive. My work includes: private planes, auto and motorcycles. I am receiving great reviews. Thank you , so very much.
Works as advertised - the Si02 does add durability to other coatings adding a slick surface.
I really like the ultra fine mist that the spray bottle provides. Color Crush leaves a super slick finish thathas my paint glowing.
