What's your biggest coating mistake? Here's mine!

2 posts in this topic

I squirreled a tube of OC 2.0 years ago for my personal vehicle since opticoat is no longer (to me).  I had a helper use just a tiny bit of it to coat a new wheel, but the rest was mine!  No touching!

... he didn't put the cap back on and the entire thing has been gelled up for months now.  I had no idea until I pulled it back out of storage today.  I was so excited, and then, ugh. I assume there's no way to reformulate this back into usable product or any way to make use of this?

Unfortunately no, once gelled, coatings are useless.  I did the same thing with Opti-Lens, didn't tighten the cap and it was gone.  It's the moisture in the air that cures all OPT coatings, so we use syringes and the cap must be replaced tightly.  Give Gloss-Coat a shot, easier to use than 2.0 and greater gloss/slickness.
