Scheduled next week to get full Opticoat Pro and have some questions!


Recommended Posts

Guys, I just arrived, but have some questions... In the event my installer reads this (which he should) I can only say this is just part of my research. I prefer to trust, but verify... I am getting Xpel Ultimate applied to my car next week... It will be a 3/4 coverage of Xpel Ultimate (pretty much everywhere but the butt... I wanted to get Opticoat Pro+ applied afterward because that is what I read online as the best way forward for my new car...


However, my installer has told me that what I have read everywhere is wrong. I have been informed that Opticoat Pro can be applied to the entire car AFTER the Xpel, but if I paid for the PLUS I would be wasting money, because the PLUS will only adhere properly to the sections with actual car paint clear coat, because the PLUS (+) must bond to the vehicles clear coat, and is therefore not advisable...


I heard what was said, but wanted to verify because I have not read that information anywhere else online to back this up. Can anyone here at the source help clarify/verify whether or not Pro+ cannot be applied to Xpel Ultimate? I ask because I have read that Xpel Ultimate has a clear coating on it (part of the Ultimate). I explicitly desired the PLUS for the gloss factor, and chose the this over products such as modesta, and cquartz even though they had been rated very high on gloss.


At this point, unless someone can provide clear evidence I am considering just not having the opticoat done and just having the entire car PPF'd with expel ultimate.


Can anyone help?

Welcome to the Optimum Forum and congratulations on using the best to protect your car! Opti-Coat Pro Plus has been applied over and under Xpel Ultimate many times with great success. Xpel tested OCP and this is the testimonial from their tech:


After some simple testing in our lab for a few weeks we are very pleased with the results of Opti-Coat on XPEL's urethane! We won't rewrite the warranty information of anything like that, but we do feel that as a low maintenance alternative to our sealant, Opti-Coat didn't cause any harm/damage to the film and made the surface more Hydrophobic and difficult to stain.


Sorry for the delay in getting this information to you, but I didn't want to put my foot in my mouth too early without a response from the lab. Please keep in mind this was all informal and designed so that our training course can start recommending an additional option for long term/low maintenance coating on the film.


Kind Regards
