  1. I dont know this has ever been discused but what are the official curing times for OPT protection products (OCW, Opti-seal, Gloss coat, opti-bond, ...)?

    Opti seal chalked my plastic trim?

    I never had any issues with opti seal being applied to anywhere...could you post some pics so we can see what we are dealing with?
  3. I for one know that after applying opti seal paint is always slick to the touch...its like touching velvet.
  4. Yeah thats what I do! Opti seal is a better drying aid then OID. Whatever water is left in the car seals or whatever streaks Opti seal leaves behind OID will remove those and enhance gloss. I also think that would be the better option.

    New Formula No Rinse

    Good to hear...ONR always did lack that extra lubricity that the competition needed. Cleaning power was always fine. I have used many Rinseless washes over the years and I can think of some that I would love to use again but ONR is still in my top 3 (The other two are Surf city rinse free wash and wax which is a great product all around and the other is Feynlab pure rinseless which has great lubrication and cleaning power and is great for winter washes). As for Bead maker its over rated...The gloss and temporary slickness it produces is great but that only lasts about a week or two at most. I see it more as a quick detailer or gloss enhancer rather then a sealant which its suppose to be. It is however as versatile as opti-seal and can be used on all outside surfaces as well as on hard inside car surfaces. Opti seal does a similar gloss enhancing job with little less slickness (still slick though) and with better water behaviour then Bead maker. I am looking forward on trying out the new ONR some day. I am sure I will know the difference instantly if I am using the old or the new formula.

    @Heijneker aha so TRC is the main distributor for Europe...ok...I still need to find someone closer to Slovenia to reduce shipping costs. I am mainly only intereted in gallon size ONR blue, OID Concentrate 1L and a spray bottle of Car wax...although I would like to give Hyper seal a try some day!

    Then why the heck is the price different?

    New Formula No Rinse

    Hey...can you give me the contact of the distributor in the Netherlands...I want to see if I can get stuff cheaper (mainly shipping) from him then from the Rag company EU.
  12. From experience I can say: - ONR W&S - a few days or a rainstorm...it doesnt really protect much - ONR W&W - about a week or 2-3 rainstorms - OCW when used over Opti-Seal - 6 weeks or so

    When Did The Spray Polishes Get So Expensive?

    that doesnt work either because (well at least Hyper polish) it is thin it will still leak through the cap...trust me Ive done that. I have replaced the sprayer with one of those Chemical guys pop up caps and if I shake it I just get hyper polish all over the place
  14. Jesus Christ man...do you intend to cook your car? I dont think heat is good for your seals and plastics though so keep the water cooler
