Opti-Coat Pro Primer Polish


Recommended Posts

Understood that the primer polish that comes with the Pro/Pro Plus kit is to be used as the final polish step before coating for better bonding. My questions is this:

Is it mandatory to use the primer polish?

How long would I have to wait after using primer to apply the coating?  Can I apply the coating right away?  Other companies that have their own primer for their coatings either has a 1 hour or 24 hour waiting period before applying their coatings.

Unless something has changed in the last two years, Hyper Polish and Primer Polish (comes in opti-coat kits) is the same.  All Optimum sprayable polishes/compounds (Hyper Polish, Intensive Polish and Hyper Compound) contain additive which aids in Optimum coatings bonding to the surface.  So in fact depending on paint you can finish with Intensive Polish before applying coating.

Thanks Mutant for the clarification. I was wondering if it was the same. Had I’d known that, it would’ve saved me 1-2hrs off my total install of pro+.

originally Primer Polish and Hyper Polish were slightly different formulas, Primer containing components that helped ceramic coatings bond.  Shortly after Dr G added those chemicals to Hyper Polish and today they are the same.

How’s about Intensive polish like what mutant says?  Will that be considered a primer polish too?

Intensive Polish is like compound, with greater correction capabilities.  Using it might require follow up with Hyper Polish to correct marring.

Especially if using on softer paints will need to follow up with Hyper Polish.  Generally I have found Intensive Polish provides more than acceptable finish on harder paints (BMW, Mercedes) when used with appropriate pad. As Ron indicated all sprayable polishes/compounds contain additive for improving coating bond so only depends on what result you want based on the paint you are working on.
