Product Description

If you want truly permanent protection for your paint that leaves an incredibly glossy and shinny appearance the Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is your answer. This product is like nothing you have ever used before do don't even compare it to a sealant or wax you may have used in the past, this is a truly permanent coating applied to your clear coat or paint for serious protection. It utilizes a special resin based coating similar to what your clear coat is made from so you can expect it to last for years just like you would your clear coat. It's actually harder than most clear coats so it should resist scratches better than the clear coat. The protection is truly unique and best of all you don't have to keep re-applying it. It is actually a versatile product as well that can be used on your clear coat, painted surfaces, smooth plastic trim, bumpers, head lights, tail lights, wheels, chrome, aluminum, etc., but do not use it on glass.

Version 1.0 (aka Opti-Guard) was originally only available for professional detailers, but version 2.0 was designed to be more user friendly so it's now available to the public. While available to all the product should be reserved for those with lots of high quality detailing experience and those comfortable executing the directions listed below. It's critical that you work on a clean surface that is free of surface imperfections. If dirt and swirls are left behind you will be locking them in beneath the Opti-Coat. To remove them you'll have to clay and polish the paint just like you would your clear coat. After you have applied the Opti-Coat you generally don't have to clay or polish but you can if desired. The formula is designed to help release contaminants better than the clear coat so a clay bar should be needed less. If you want to remove the Opti-Coat in the future you'll need to polish the paint. Sealing and waxing is no longer needed but you can add a coat if desired.

Directions
1.) Wash and clay the paint so it has been thoroughly cleaned
2.) Polish the vehicle to remove all surface imperfections
3.) Wipe down the paint with 15% mix of Isopropyl Alcohol and distilled water to removes oils, etc. from polishes
4.) We recommend putting a rubber glove on now so you don't get any product on your hands. Put about 7 to 10 drops on various parts of your foam applicator to help prime the pad, but you only need to do this once in the beginning.
5.) Apply several drops to the foam applicator and buff it on nice and thin up and down and then side to side.
6.) Within five minutes inspect your work and make sure no areas look too thick, as they should look clear after they flash. If it looks too thick use a foam applicator or a microfiber towel to buff out imperfections. The surface may feel a bit tacky so only do this as needed. Generally the less you touch it after the application the more likely it is to cure perfect, although it is a self leveling formula that will help with minor imperfections. Work on one panel at a time before repeating this steps 5 and 6.

Professional Detailer Reviews

I feel Opti-Coat is revolutionary for both consumers and the detailing community. By offering this product to our clients we are, in a sense, offering a renewable clear coat, but with much better properties. I've been using this information to help sell Opti-Coat to my clients for a while, but it is especially important for clients with new cars sporting very thin OEM paint (80-90 microns). Even though this is a permanent coating, I really don't try to sell it as such. Instead, I educate the customer about the product and highlight the benefits, including that future polishing will remove less OEM paint, since the majority of light swirling and marring will be in the coating. I also like to explain that Opti-Coat offers increased UV protection to replenish the small amount potentially removed during polishing.

Flash time on this is very quick, but it works great. A must have coating if paint leveling was performed to prevent future damage, and a no brainer if you bought a new car as they are a significant investment, so a very wise choice. It goes on nice and easy, move it around quickly and knock down the high spots and it dries to a deep long lasting shine.

Applied it to my wife's new Subaru. Just follow the directions and take your time. It was easy to apply with a Yellow applicator. My garage temp was 64 degrees and 33% humidity. I had lighting set up to ensure uniform coverage. It went on easy and in my case, flashed quickly. I gently wiped the "high spots", as indicated by the rainbow streak. I did it within a minute but with 2.0 the closer you wait to the 5 minute mark the better. Again, this will depend on your atmospheric conditions. The water sheets and beads like crazy. While driving recently in a rain shower, it was cool to watch the water leaving the hood in the manner it did.

Actually easier to apply than Klasse and Zano sealant that I have been using for years. Looks very glossy and has good depth. Don't put on windows. it's a pain. glass polishes very nicely so putting on something that is not meant to bond to glass and is softer than the glass itself doesn't make sense.

Going to apply it on my other two cars.
