New Package. More Gloss. Same Protection!
The Opti-Coat Pro package now delivers even more gloss and slickness than ever before, while still maintaining the same chemical structure that has made it renowned as the ultimate protective paint coating.
The advanced formulation not only delivers amazing gloss and protection, it also provides increased anti waterspotting and hydrophobic properties to maintain the perfect finish in the long term.
What is Opti-Coat Pro+?
Opti-Coat is a hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H), and surface 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 and mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints.
Opti-Coat is the only coating that has been tested by the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation for Chemical and Scratch Resistance. See Test results
What Makes Opti-Coat So Different?
Opti-Coat is not a paint protection wax, sealant or nano coating 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 up to 2 microns in thickness. When compared to other 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 lime (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.
What Are The Benefits Of Applying Opti-Coat?
A Superior Clear Coat Film
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 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!
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.
Powered by SiC™
The primary function of a ceramic coating is to protect the surface it is applied to. SiO2 and TiO2 based resins will hydrolyse and diminish over time. The hydrolysis and degradation of SiO2 and TiO2 based resins is accelerated with high pH products (such as alkaline degreasers) as well as at low pH cleaners (acid wash, etc.). By removing the Oxygen group and using SiC linkages as the polymer backbone, our coatings are unaffected by low or high pH levels (acids and alkalines) and resistant to UV breakdown.
During the development of Opti-Coat in 2004, we developed and tested a number of different resins for longevity, hardness, chemical resistance, UV resistance, scratch resistance and other desirable features such as gloss levels. These resins included SiC based resins as well as SiO2, TiO2, Silane, Siloxane, Fluoro, and a few other polymer resins.
Across the board, the SiC based resins we developed outperformed all others for these criteria. The resins that were based on SiO2 and TiO2 were initially comparable in hardness, however, they were hydrolysed and diminished over time. While the hydrolysis of SiO2 and TiO2 based resins was slow in neutral or low pH exposure and took months to become apparent, it was quite rapid at pH above 10 due to catalytic cleavage of Si-O or Ti-O bonds with hydroxyl group at higher pH. SiC linkage on the other hand was completely unaffected by acids (low pH) or caustics (high pH) due to the lack of oxygen group.
This difference in performance means one layer of SiC based resin would last longer than multiple layers of SiO2 or TiO2 resins since SiC resin does not diminish over time. Furthermore, since the SiC bond is harder and more inert, it does not allow chemicals to penetrate and damage the substrate it is applied to.
For these reasons we chose to develop the Opti-Coat resins using SiC as the polymer backbone. This has resulted in the Opti-Coat line of clear coats providing the best protective properties to automotive finishes since their release in 2008.
