The Opti-Coat Pro Ceramic Paint Protection 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 car protection, it also provides increased anti waterspotting and hydrophobic properties to maintain the perfect finish in the long term.
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 car’s painted surface, 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 protection coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints.
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 car’s factory coating, protecting the surface indefinitely and will not delaminate.
A single layer of Opti-Coat 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 car’s factory paint layers. Swirl marks and light scratches are not only decreased by the harder Opti-Coat 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 car’s 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.
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.
Opti-Coat will provide the owner with a permanent hydrophobic surface that is easier to clean, and stays cleaner for longer!
By maintaining a quality finish using Opti-Coat, you’ll also maintain a solid resale value when it comes time to upgrade to a new vehicle.
The similarities and differences in coatings available on the market are quite striking.
All true coatings are ceramic based, ceramic being a term meaning inorganic. Organics such as sealants are carbon based and as such wear away over time, ceramic in itself is permanent, being as it’s inorganic.
Coatings can be characterised by their silicon content (not silicone), and 2 principal variations of silicon are used. Silicon Carbide, SiC, and the most common is Silicon Dioxide (others such as Titanium Dioxide are also used, but not regularly) Opti-Coat Pro (OCP) is the only coating available that harnesses the strengths of Silicon Carbide (sometimes referred to as ceramic, industrial diamonds and carborundum). Unlike SiO2 based ceramic sealants the SiC based coating actually bonds to the paint and the SiC is formed as a chemical reaction in that process, not by having Nano particles of the ceramic floating in a resin. SiC is superior to SiO2 ceramic sealants in terms of chemical resistance and has a melting point of 2,730 °C (4,950 °F; 3,000 K.
Sometimes marketed as glass, quartz or ceramic and in all cases that’s true. SiO2 is suspended in a resin in the form of Nano particles of Silicon Dioxide, and the resins suspend this in a film over the paint. SiO2 has a melting point of 1,600 °C (2,910 °F; 1,870 K). Since these “coatings” are resin based, they are more accurately termed Ceramic Sealants, and unlike a true coating, they are not permanent.
Opti-Coat Pro is unique in many ways because of this fundamental difference in chemistry. Opti-Coat–Pro becomes one with the paint instead of suspending nano particles of a harder substance in a resin. This gives Opti-Coat Pro far superior chemical resistance, as the chemical must break down the SiC, and not break down a resin holding SiO2 nano particles. OCP is harder than ceramic sealants, but no coating is scratch proof. To obtain maximum strength many ceramic sealants require heat curing and multiple layers, with OCP that’s not required. SiO2 ceramic sealants obtain their maximum gloss immediately, and that gloss drops off over time, Opti-Coat Pro obtains it’s maximum gloss once the polymerization process is completed (roughly 7 days). Opti-Coat Pro will maintain its gloss over time, SiO2 laced ceramic sealants start losing their gloss through oxidation and it continues to drop, requiring the need to add periodically some form of resin to maintain or restore the gloss and protection. Many of these ceramic sealants that call themselves coatings require re-application of their product, or a weaker variation of it as part of their maintenance to keep the warranty valid.
