  1. The question of whether ONR leaves anything behind comes up every so often. This is directly from Dr G: "Onr leaves polymers that are cumulative over time. Car wash does not leave anything behind." ONR is paint safe and body shop safe as well.
  2. Glass Coating prep and application

    Minimum of 1 hour before driving - 7 days before cleaning with solvents.
  3. Difference between GPS and poli-seal

    I've used GPS by hand many times with good success - working better by machine does not preclude hand application.
  4. I personally don't like the "blow dry" method - Understand the benefits of no touch, but my OCD finds it takes too long to get every drop off. I take care with quality drying towels and have no marring...
  5. RE coating gloss coat

    We appreciate any love Optimum gets - we aren't a marketing company and word of mouth/forums/social media drive our success!
  6. Glass Coating prep and application

    Guz is correct in no need to mask, but one suggestion - don't spray directly onto glass. We've found that Opti-Glass begins curing immediately and should be sprayed directly onto the pad and applied at once. Delay can cause less than satisfactory bonding.
  7. There is a cumulative affect of using ONR, with residual polymers remaining on the paint. I can't speak to Car Wash (admit to never using because I was seduced to the dark side by ONR). I don't think there's any negative to washing with ONR, rinsing, then blow drying. But I also see no advantages, certainly not in time or resources saved.
  8. A little understood/appreciated piece of car care is the different bottles and sprayers necessary. Optimum found this out the hard way when Carpet & Fabric Cleaner & Protectant started eating the bottoms of bottles (as I discovered on my cabinet floor) - had to buy a new formula plastic bottle. Optimum sprayers are not universal - we use a heavy duty model for Hyper products and even then, Hyper Compound requires a different sprayer than Hyper hell on efficient flow in a distribution center. Dr G has that responsibility, on top of a few others.
  9. RE coating gloss coat

    That sucks, Habs! You can use Hyper Polish by machine or by hand, wipe down with Paint Prep and apply Gloss-Coat.
  10. If you contact Chasaty at Optimum ( or 901-363-4955) she should help you. That applies in the US, you should contact your distributor if international.
  11. your question was about OPP (Protectant Plus) but yes, Power Clean in a light ratio will remove smudges on vinyl and fabric. As always with Power Clean, rinse thoroughly after use.
  12. ?'s On 2nd Application Of Gloss Coat

    depending on various conditions, Opti-Seal might last several weeks on Gloss-Coat. With your thorough prep, I'm confident you have a successful application.
  13. ?'s On 2nd Application Of Gloss Coat

    I'm confident your Hyper Polish did the trick, especially after 1.5 years.
  14. OPP works great on plastic, vinyl, and leather - it's a cleaner AND protectant and should have no issue with Eyesight (it's not glossy). Opti-Clean is the stronger cleaner but does not replenish natural oils in leather. If necessary, I would clean the interior with Opti-Clean, then treat it with OPP.
  15. Opti Coat No Rinse

    3 cap fulls = 1 ounce for Opti-Coat No Rinse.
