Opti-Coat

What is Opti-Coat?

Opti-Coat is a hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and protection from chemical etching due to environmental impacts. The Opti-Coat pre-polymer cross links, and forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to, similar to a single component isocyanate that forms a clear coat finish. Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch & mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints and can also be used to protect metal and hard plastic surfaces.

Why choose Opti-Coat?

Opti-Coat is not a paint protection wax or sealant that will wash away, or break down over time. Opti-Coat bonds permanently with the factory coating, protecting the surface indefinitely and will not delaminate. A single layer of Optimum Clear Coating measures approximately 2 microns in thickness. When compared to IMG_4537other paint protection products, Opti-Coat is more than 100 times thicker, with tests showing a wax coating measuring less than 0.02 microns. This allows Opti-Coat to effectively absorb damage that would otherwise affect the factory paint layers. Swirl marks and light scratches are not only decreased by the harder Optimum Ceramic Coating, the factory paint is protected and preserved. Opti-Coat is completely resistant to acidic environmental substances such as bird droppings. Unlike your factory clear coating that can be permanently damaged, Opti-Coat will not etch or dissolve when in contact with these substances, and a clean, glossy clear coating is maintained

Benefits of Opti-Coat?

A Superior Clear Coat Film Opti-Coat will provide the owner with a superior clear coat film and the most Opti Coat Pro Kansas Cityadvanced paint protection product in the market place that is resistant to chemical etching, and harder than factory clear coatings to reduce swirls and scratches. A Permanent Hydrophobic Surface Opti-Coat will provide the owner with a permanent hydrophobic surface that is easier to clean, and stays cleaner for longer!

FAQ’S

The safest wash method for Opti-Coat(and all painted surfaces, coated or not) is ONR. Optimum No Rinse protects the surface through all stages of the wash process. When aplying Opti-Coat Pro to a customers car, take the time to educate them on the ONR wash process. This will increase your customers satisfaction, and trust in you as their detailer. Wash kits are a good item to sell to your customers. On a yearly basis it’s advisable to decontaminate the surface, This is best done with Ferrex, followed by a mild Optimum Clay Towel, using Optimum Car Wax as lubrication for the clay towel. OCW is thick enough and slick enough that it prevents marring when using a mild clay towel.

Yes! Clean the top with Power Clean, and rinse thoroughly. With a soft brush brush the fabric when wet, if it creates suds it needs to be rinsed again. Allow the top to dry, and apply the Opti Guard Fabric to the top, brush it in with a soft dry brush, allow to sit for another 30 mins, and reapply and brush again. Allow 1 hour minimum to dry before exposing to water

We have done a number of RV’ that are painted, but not just Gel Coat. You do not want to put OCP on the EPDM roof coating. If it’s a “full paint” RV then go forward with OCP with no issues, if it’s gel coat, I would also go with the polish and Opti Seal once every 6 months, For OCP we charge $60 per foot including primer polish. Paint correction is a futile exercise on most of these units, they come equipped from the factory with runs, sags, fish eyes, and dust nibs, not to mention sanding marks and swirls

Opti-coat Pro has a tacky feel to it. It is not like your traditional wax or sealant. To give your car that slick feeling, a wax or sealant can be applied on top of OCP. Wait at least 1hr after application before applying it. Optimum recommends using Opti-seal. Another option is to top it with Gloss Coat. Adding longer lasting slickness that will not wear off like the sealant or wax you have applied.

Xpel or other films work great to protect from rock chips and Opti-Coat would protect the film from environmental damage and keep contaminants from bonding to the film. In fact the protection you get from Opti-Coat alone is greater than just from a clear film but using both would provide the maximum protection. We have never seen or heard of any issues with applying Opti-Coat before Xpel or other films and the benefits would be that paint stays protected if any contaminants get under the film. This also makes removing the film easier down the road.The main reason Xpel recommends against applying Opti-Coat first is that the gel they use during installation of their film might not spread as easily due to the hydrophobic nature of Opti-Coat
