    Where does MDR fall in a coating prep workflow?

    Sorry for all the posts, I found out why MDR killed my coating, CQuartz has a ph resistance scale of 3-11. MDR has a ph of 2.65

    Ron, would a MDR dwell time of say 20 mins hurt Glosscoat?

    Per Yvan before if you use a light / fine clay like the Optimum clay towel it doesn't mar so no need to worry about polishing.

    I used a foam applicator with MDR, applied to the paint, let it sit for a 2-3 minutes, washed off. Did the bag test and found no contamination. I tried a similar approach on my hood because of contamination, the hood being coated with CarPro CQuartz, leaving the MDR on for about 20 mins as I couldn't get the contaminated to leave. I washed the hood to remove the MDR and found the coating to be DEAD. I was shocked to see this. Have you heard of this before? I thought MDR even with long dwell times was coating friendly.

    Heijneker, I did as you suggested and used MDR prior to claying (even though there were no water spot) and it made it so I didn't have to clay!

    Awesome thanks! I checked out the video and what you say makes sense.

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    Totally understand, but the old podcast episodes being lost is a huge blow in my viewing. For a marketing perspective they should keep them around.

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    These podcasts are what brought me into the Optimum family. I understand not wanting to continue producing new podcasts but they should absolutely bring back the old timeless content. I sure hope that $10 a month isn't what's keeping them from coming back. If so I would seriously question the business judgment of Dr G. I'm saying this as a concerned pro-sumer detailer who has very much enjoyed the Optimum synergy product line. Paul

    Optimum Synergy Podcast

    What happened to the podcast? When can we expect more episodes? Paul
  10. I'm looking for a maintenance routine for a Gloss Coat. Other coating vendors publish details routines so I'm wondering what Optimum recommends? I'm sure #1 is washing with ONR regularly. Should I Ferrex annually? Power Clean as needed? MDR as needed? Optimum Car Wash quarterly? Any top coat that should be applied regularly? OptiCoat, Opti Car Wax? I'm just looking at a solid procedure that will keep the coating alive and well for as long as possible. Thanks, Paul
  11. I have a black BMW with water spots I'm preping to coat. What should my workflow look like? I'm guessing the following. 1) Pre-soak 2) Wash 3) Iron remover 4) Clay 5) MDR? 6) Polish 7) Panel Prep 8 ) Coat

    Optimum Gloss-Coat

    Thanks Ron, is it ok then to do the water demo at the 1+ hour mark?

    Optimum Gloss-Coat

    I've seen on YouTube that with Opticoat Pro+ that there is a impressive water beading/ sheeting demo done. Can we do that same thing with Gloss Coat? If so when? I assume after the 1 hour mark and before applying Opti-Seal? Thanks, Paul
  14. Hi Setec, I'm just a serious hobbyist toying with the idea of going pro as a side business. I think I understand where these products are placed. They are the top self, premium products and are priced accordingly.
  15. Thanks guys. Can you tell me when it came out? Any podcasts that address in more detail? Why no forum dedicated to Hyper Seal?
