    HPCS without ONR

    Dampen the Clean pad with water.
  2. No need to clean it, simply store it where it will not collect dust, and it will be ready to use. Even in a wipe on application, be sure to follow the instructions and dilute the Opti-Bond Tire Gel 1/1.
  3. There are a few things going on here. First is the soap , for washing try Optimum No Rinse(ONR), you will get better results. The Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer will reduce the beading and sheating of the Gloss-Coat.

    First wash

    Congratulations Vince For washing, Opti-Coat No Rinse is the best choice for maintaining your coating. If you prefer a soap, we have Opti-Coat M-Wash. There is no need to wax a coated vehicle.

    Big red sponge with the soap

    The Big Red Sponge can be used with soap, but it doesn’t work well, the Sponge gets loaded. The new Opti-Coat Big Gold Sponge works just as well with both Optimum No Rinse(ONR) and Car Wash Soap.
  8. That Ford Ruby Red is an amazing colour. If you get a chance to park beside another Ford with the same RR paint code you will see the difference Opti-Coat Pro + makes. Here are a few pictures of my Ruby Red Ford.

    Hyper Seal Uses

    Correct, I should have written best left to the exterior, sorry for the confusion. Opti-Coat Hyper Seal can be used as a drying aid, or as a stand alone sealant like Opti-Seal on all exterior surfaces.

    Opti-Coat Hyper Seal is best left on the paint.

  12. For regular maintenance the Opti-Coat No Rinse is the best choice, even on the non coated vehicles.
  13. If you absolutely want to do a second coat ( really no need, or advantage), use only an Optimum No Rinse(ONR) dampened cloth.

    Welcome to the group
  15. Both will perform the same job. Where Opti-Coat No Rinse gains over Optimum No Rinse(ONR) is Gloss Enhancers, and additional slickness.
  16. As A&J said you can apply it as a stand alone sealant. The easiest and most efficient way is as a drying aid. As a drying aid you actually do not loose much in terms of longevity because of the Synergy of the Optimum and Opti-Coat lines. When using it over a coating, longevity isn’t really a concern, as your coating is providing that for you. Gloss-Coat like all our coatings doesn’t require a booster to maintain its effectiveness. Adding Opti-Coat Hyper Seal gives you added Gloss and slickness. It also adds a sacrificial layer for contamination to bond to. This way the contamination isn’t as strongly attached to the coating, allowing some of the contamination to be released from the surface as the sealant degrades.

    Congratulations. With Opti-Coat Pro there is no need for toppers or rejuvinators to preserve gloss. To remove contamination the standard option is mechanical decontamination. This is accomplished by washing the surface with Optimum No Rinse(ONR), then using one spray of Optimum Car Wax per panel, using the mixture as your clay lube , use a fine clay or clay towel to spread the wax. Once the panel is decontaminated, dry and enjoy.

    Opticoat Care

    Thank you for having your vehicles coated, you will find that it’s a great investment. Please confirm what coating your received. If it’s Opti-Coat Pro or Opti-Coat Pro + you will have received a warranty card and they are warranted for 5 and 7 years respectively. If you received Optimum Paint Guard it has a 3 year warranty, and Gloss-Coat has no warranty, but will last 2-3 years with proper maintenance. Maintenance is simple, keep them clean with Opti-Coat No Rinse on a regular basis, and if you wish to add a little more pop you can use Opti-Coat Hyper Seal as a drying aid. To remove bonded contamination, we have 2 options that are very coating friendly. The first is a purely chemical decontamination. wash the car with Opti-Coat No Rinse Apply FerreX, allow to dwell, but not dry, agitate with an Opti-Coat No Rinse dampened MF towel, then rinse. Next, apply Opti-Coat Power Clean , allow to dwell, and rinse. Follow that up with a MDR bath, apply and agitate with a damp MF towel, allow to dwell, then rinse. Finally wash with Opti-Coat No Rinse, dry using Opti-Coat Hyper Seal. Seeing as your in California, a less water intensive approach is to wash the car with Optimum No Rinse(ONR), while the panel is still damp with Optimum No Rinse(ONR), apply one spray of Optimum Car Wax, and use the wax/onr mixture as your clay lube. Dry the panel immediately after you are done with the clay. Here is a brief video describing the process

    Opti Coat No Rinse 16oz

    The cap sizes are the following 8oz bottles 1/4 oz 16oz and gallons 1/3oz 32oz 1/2oz https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhkYYSCF0Jv8kAttiZPVN-9vSWHZ
  23. Unlike Si02 based long term nano ceramic sealants, Opti-Coat Pro doesn’t require a topper or rejuvenator . You can use the above products , Opti-Coat Hyper Seal being the best, but they are not required. As required a decontamination is suggested when you feel the beading is lacking. This can be accomplished by claying, or chemically by washing with Optimum No Rinse(ONR) , then use FerreX, rinse, followed by Optimum Power Clean, Rinse, followed by MDR, rinse, and Optimum No Rinse(ONR) again.
  24. Once every 3-4 cleanings, or every 3 months. Another option is to mix up 1/2 oz of Optimum No Rinse(ONR), 2-4 oz of Optimum Leather Protectant ( aka Protectant Plus) into 1 gallon of water. This will allow you to clean and protect in 1 step.

    Optimum Power Clean will also remove Opti-Coat Hyper Seal.
