My review is for Gloss-Coat, not OC 2.0. After using Gloss-Coat for the first time I came away really impressed with the ease of application and the slickness during and after application. Unlike some other coatings, Gloss-coat is ridiculously easy to apply and is not finicky at all. It also takes much longer to completely flash, which is a good thing because it gives you that much more time to wipe-away any high spots before it cures. Speaking of high-spots, I found they seem to disappear a lot on their own so I didn't have too many to wipe away. After the application, the paint was incredibly slick and the gloss was top-notch. I cannot comment on durability at this point but I will be checking in with my customer periodically to see how they feel it's holding up. My two big issues with Gloss-Coat are the amount that comes in the syringe and the price. I think OC 2.0 came with 20 cc's for $80, but Gloss-Coat (only 2 years of protection) comes with just 10-12 cc's for $60. Essentially, it went from about $4/cc to $6/cc. While Gloss-Coat does have some better attributes than OC 2.0, it's upsetting that Optimum jacked the price up on a product that doesn't offer the same long-term protection as the product it replaces. Optimum makes great products, but business & marketing decisions leave much to be desired.

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.

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.

Optimum has done it again! At first they had Opti Gaurd which was only available to professionals and you had to sign a waiver form. Now they have come out with a user friendly version Opti-Coat 2.0. This stuff is probably the best permanent paint coating out there at this time! I have used it on a 06 Mercedes SL500 including the paint, wheels, trim, grill, jambs, etc. It beads water months later like the day it was applied! Easy to apply, pricing is very fair and reliability is great. I will warn that it is NOT a filler product, meaning that it will not hide scratches or even small imperfections. All imperfections will need to be removed prior to applying this product or else they will be sealed in. It also needs to be prepped correctly and paint cleaned very very well before applying. If you are using Optimum compound and polishes prior to applying this product then all that will need to be done is a wipe down of a highly diluted ratio of Optimum Power Clean. Also a great sealer for headlight restorations!
