    OCW on Red RX3

    Since then the owner has completely stripped and re-painted the car (and changed many other aspects). Here it is now after a recent detail: For anyone interested, here is the Paint Before and here are a couple of shots after the Paint Correction alone (no LSP) and probably the images in terms of representation of fidelity of actual paint colour. _________________________________ shine! _________________________________ rear tyres! _________________________________ again, shine! _________________________________ again, rear tyres!

    OCW layering and cure time

    I find a little smearing occuring when layering within 24 hours, esp in low temp weather. I find 3 days minimum the best time to wait. This coudl be due to conditions in Melbourne, Australia though.

    When might we see the new OCW?

    I'm looking foward to using this.

    OCW on Red RX3

    Thanks for the kind words, I just cannot leave it as is, I want to give the finish the durability it needs before returning it to the customer. I haven't tried Opti-Seal yet, but love OCW. d.

    She's 560hp & 500Nm Would Opti-Seal remove some of my depth or gloss on this Red?

    Silicone in OCW?

    Silicone in OCW?

    I don't think it was intentional but I have advertised that OCW has no silcone in it and someone has stated otherwise. Now I confidently inform my customers otherwise. Is there any MSDS info on OCW available to me? Many thanks, d.

    Silicone in OCW?

    Hey Anth & Dave, you don't know me, but I know you two, much respect from here. Thanks for the replies. I was referring to OCW (Optimum Car Wax), not poliseal (which I am currently testing) and it's great to know that OCW contains no silicone. My customers had found a site containg info on OCW informing customers that it contained silicones and I was just checking. I use OCW frequently in Bodyshops as well. Awesome Product, so easy to use and the appearance it yeilds is very unique. I love the gradual increase in Depth and the gloss level, a very classy looking wax imo. Thanks again for the replies, d.

    Silicone in OCW?

    I've been using OCW for a while (about a year) and love it. Just wondering though, does OCW contain silicones? Thanks in advance, d.

    Hi Guys, Damian is my name, my company is Final Inspection Auto Boutique and I’ve been lurking here anonymously for months. I've decided to join and also would like to comment on what a great site this is and such a good source of info on Optimum Products. I retail Optimum products in Australia and use them extensively in our Car Wash/Detailing Facility in Melbourne, Australia. The work I do can be found in my gallery here: http://gallery.finalinspection.com.au/ I've got a question already which I'll post in the appropriate section right now! Cheers Damian.
