CEE DOG Posted April 15, 2011 Share Posted April 15, 2011 Dr. G, It was great having an opportunity to talk with you at Detail Fest again this year. I have a few questions I was hoping you could answer for everyone. This Q&A will be posted online in my Coatings Review and Extreme Testing article. I would like to post my article this weekend if possible. 1.-What would be the consequences of using more than light pressure to buff off high spots or ridges within minutes of application? 2.-Approximately how many microns will Opti-Coat 2.0 add to paint? 3.-Can Opti-Coat 2.0 be applied to single stage paints of any age? 4.-Consider a car with older single stage paint that is badly oxidized and faded and then polished to perfection and brought back to glossy condition. Can Opti-Coat 2.0 lock in the gloss or have any effect stopping the paint from regressing to its faded condition? 5.-Can Opti-Coat 2.0 be used on leather, vinyl, and interior plastics? 6.-What would be the outcome if Opti-Coat 2.0 was applied to a properly cleaned tire? 7.-I understand using Optimum Poliseal with a foam finishing pad is the acceptable method of cleaning the coating down the road. Is this correct? 8.-Are other Optimum products such as OptiClean and Optimum No Rinse friendly with Opti-Coat 2.0? If they are friendly do they require any adaptation in their application compared with how they are used on non-coated paint. 9.-What temperatures will cured Opti-Coat 2.0 withstand before failing? 10.-Assuming its kept indoors in 65-78 degrees what is the shelf life of Opti-Coat 2.0 before being opened by the consumer? 11.-If only some of the syringe is used and it is properly resealed with the cap what will the remaining shelf life be? Assume its kept indoors in 65-78 degrees. 12.-Can a small touchup spot of Opti-Coat 2.0 be applied over a previously Opti-coated panel. For instance: If you get a rock chip in your paint and need to touch it up then want to recoat the touched up area with Opti-coat can you simply apply OC to that one small area? Would there be any negative affects where the touch-up OC overlapped the existing OC? Thank you so much for your work on this innovative product and as always thank you for taking the time to answer my questions in such an insightful manner.
