Opti Coat Pro UV

Recommended Posts



I decided to join the forum after deciding to coat my car. But I have two major concerns:


1. How safe is to remove Opti Coat? One detailer said to me, that he knows base on how the polish reacts. It get smoother when the coat is gone. Other told me that he measures the coat. Knowing the thickness of the clear coat and knowing the thickness of the OC he then knows how much to remove. My concern is removing too much clear coat. What are your comments?


2. If Opti Coat Pro doesn't have any UV inhibitors how doe it protects the paint? The whole point of waxing a car is to provide UV protection and prevent the paint from deteriorating. So how exactly is this achieved by Opti Coat? One detailer told be it prevent oxidation but what about fading or any other potential UV damage (if any)? Do I have to apply wax over the Opti Coat to prevent UV damage?


Other questions:


3. What is the difference between the Pro and Pro+? Why is one better than the other?

4. Are certified detailers "better" than non-certified? What does it means to be certified? Meet better standards? Should I go with a certified one?

5. How long can the coating last with proper maintenance? I mean, can it last more than the warranty states (5 or 7yrs)?

6. One detailer told me that Optimum does not honor the warranty, that they blame it on no proper care. That is discouraging.


Thanks in advance
