Opti-coat explained....

frequently asked questions: 

  • What is Opti-Coat?

    Opti-Coat is a hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching and protection from chemical etching due to environmental impacts such as UV rays from sunlight. The Opti-Coat pre-polymer cross links, and forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to, which 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 original paint coating, protecting the surface indefinitely and will not lose its properties. A single layer of Optimum Clear Coating measures approximately 2 microns in thickness. When compared to other paint protection products, Opti-Coat is more than 100 times thicker. 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 which gives your car a better long term resale value. Opti-Coat is completely resistant to acidic environmental substances such as bird droppings. Unlike your original 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.

  • What Are The Benefits of Applying Opti-Coat?

    Opti-Coat will provide the owner with a superior clear coat film and the most advanced paint protection product in the marketplace, that is resistant to chemical hazards and harder than factory clear coatings to reduce swirls and scratches. A Permanent Hydrophobic (water repellent) Surface Opti-Coat will provide the owner with a permanent hydrophobic surface that is easier to clean, and stays cleaner for longer! Improved Resale Value by maintaining a quality finish using the Optimum Clear Coating, you'll also maintain a solid resale value when it comes time to upgrade to a new vehicle.

  • How Does it Work?

    Opti-Coat works by bonding to your car’s original clear coating and becoming a permanent part of your vehicles paint system. Just like the clear coat bonds to the base coat, Opti-Coat bonds chemically to the clear coat. Initially, the technician will assess the paint work for defects and contamination. All surface contamination and any necessary defects are removed. Once this stage is complete, the paintwork is prepped and cleaned using an alcohol based cleaner and ready for coating. The Optimum Clear Coating is mostly self-leveling. Any high spots are manually leveled by the technician to produce an even coat. Once complete, the surface is touch dry within 30 minutes. The Optimum Clear Coating continues to mend and harden. Within 12 hours it is resistant to liquids such as water and can be driven as normal by the client. Opti-Coat will then continue to harden over the next 30 days as it is exposed to heat.
