    Wash n wax

    don't necessarily agree with A&J, depends on the product. Some but not all can affect shine or water behavior - Optimum does not test our products with competitors.

    Wash n wax

    Sometimes wash products from other manufacturers can have different effects on wax/sealants - but in general there shouldn't be any negative reaction with Opti-Seal.

    Hyper Polish question

    Thanks for the very thorough answer, Mutant, and very accurate! Hyper Polish (and Compound) have ingredients that assist in Coating application, part of Dr G's formulation, and why we recommend using them to prep for Coatings. Actually Hyper Polish is very close formula to the Primer Polish Optimum includes with it's Pro Coatings. Synergy!

    Optimum Products on golf carts

    The simple answer is yes, Hyper products are safe on fiberglass/gelcoat.

    Best Applicator for Opti-Bond Tire Gel?

    Sorry A&J, I have no experience "burning in tire dressings and have never heard anyone trying it with Opti-Bond.

    Opti-Clean safe for houshold use?

    There is nothing to verify, with the exception of some Coatings, all Optimum products are safe to use/touch, that is a company philosophy.

    Opti-Clean safe for houshold use?

    I've used Opti-Clean on all interior surfaces for years, actually like it better than ONR for cleaning counter tops, tile, fixtures, even stainless steel appliances.

    Not confirmed, hope for first quarter of 2019.

    New to the product and lots of questions

    It should not effect your ONR mixture to power wash and it is not necessary to power wash before a rinseless wash (I never do). Power washing might be necessary in areas where salt & sand are used for snow, or when the vehicle gets really dirty/mud caked, etc, to remove the worst buildup. It's also handy to clean the undercarriage.

    What is this to?

    That is the sprayer for Carpet & Fabric, you didn't mention that product.
  18. Ron@Optimum

    What is this to?

    Probably Opti-Seal, smaller than the other spray heads.

    First attempt at using Gloss Coat

    Your methodology is fine. Hyper Polish can be applied by hand with a microfiber or pad. You can apply Gloss-Coat to any exterior hard surface, including glass - the admonition against glass is that wipers will remove the Coating, greatly reducing the durability. It works great on wiperless glass.
  20. Ron@Optimum

    Optiseal right after gloss coat application

    Both methods will work, there is no recommended wipedown - but you don't need to go back over Opti-Seal after application.

    I understand the Clear Coat Restorer will be available sometime during the first quarter, nothing yet on the other products.

    New to the product and lots of questions

    I know professional installers who use a single bucket (I use a divided bucket) with no problems. Optimum does not recommend one method over another (unless giving personal opinions). My drying towel collects some minimal dirt, usually around corners/nooks/crannies where the BRS doesn't make as much contact. Again, too much dirt on your drying towel is a bad sign. As to Setec's point of accepting some marring, I have a Coated car that has not marred at all and an uncoated car that has minimal marring/micro marring - same dude washing, same products, same procedures. Sales pitch for Coating?
