    Gloss Coat re-invented?

    It's not Gloss-Coat - (1) Optimum does not private label ceramic coatings and (2) no Optimum Coatings come in a bottle. Whatever he's selling, it's not SiC because air in that bottle (or moisture in the air) would cause it to cure.

    Great suggestions -

    Gelcoat Restorer Off-Label Uses

    Setec, appreciate you experimenting. Yesterday someone asked if they could use CCR on headlights (I suggested that wasn't the designed usage and Opti-Lens was a better choice). What is it about car enthusiasts that they're always looking for unique (and obscure) uses for products? Optimum is pressed to handle the business now and just doesn't have time to investigate different product usages and combinations. Let us know how your tests turn out...

    Power clean for household cleaning

    I use Opti-Clean and ONR for many household cleaning projects (keep spray bottles in bathroom, kitchen, and on my pontoon) for most cleaning jobs. Also keep Power Clean at 1:3 on hand for bigger jobs, it's perfectly safe.

    Removing water spots on Opti-Coat Pro+

    water spots come in a variety of hardness - you can try No Rinse, vinegar, or MDR (Mineral Deposit Remover). If that doesn't work and your car isn't ceramic coated, you can remove with polish.
  10. glad to hear it worked for you -
  11. like many concentrates (Power Clean comes to mind), Optimum directions are based on most common usage, but experience and experimentation lead to a variety of different mix ratios. The original directions were based on spray, but foamers and extractors presented new opportunities. Our directions are guidelines for "best practices" but not hard and fast rules. The new OCFCP labels reflected successful experimentation with alternate applications/mixes.

    Given that it has soft bristles and is safe on paint...and coatings are harder than clear is safe on Coatings.

    MSDS for new Optimum products

    there is a generic SDS but not in the format we want to publish -

    MSDS for new Optimum products

    We do not have the CCR SDS yet - confirmed with office
  15. no need, I contacted the office (I don't live in Memphis or work out of the office), there was a label update in 2017 that reflects what you say. I have old product with old labels. The online store only has the 1:3 ratio listed for some reason. Sorry I doubted you...
  16. not trying to argue with you, but the product description at the online store AND on the labels I have are all 1; other options. Unless we changed labels, that is consistent.

    MSDS for new Optimum products

    We do not have SDS on the new products, this can be a time consuming exercise and we have to wait on a lab to provide. Not sure how to overcome the loading issue because I've tried several times...
  18. this looks like an Amazon document - in Optimum's product description and on the actual label it states 1:3 dilution ratio. Other mix ratios are always possible, but that is Optimum's recommendation.
  19. not sure where you read 1:10 mix instructions, the label only recommends 1:3...

    Glosscoat on matt wheels?

    To try a test spot is always our recommendation - Gloss-Coat has been used on matte finishes frequently and works well, but you have to be comfortable with the look.

    MSDS for new Optimum products

  22. As A&J states, the Opti-Coat line is formulated for Coated cars (but will work on any vehicle), is sold by authorized OCP installers and directly from Optimum (, but not through Amazon or other distributors. The Opti-Coat products work in the same way and on the same surfaces as Optimum.

    Clear Coat Restorer

    wet sanding can replace compound and you can apply to partial panels.

    GlossCoat on faucet, household fixtures?

    I've never used a Coating on household fixtures/appliances but have used Opti-Seal on shower doors/walls, hot tub, stainless steel appliances, TV screens, etc with no issues. Gloss Coat won't hurt anything but seems like overkill with no guarantee on longevity. Optimum does not test products on non automotive surfaces (though others have).
  25. Danny, sorry you're having this problem, but Optimum only sells through distributors internationally. I'm surprised Joel Blake from Optimum Car Care of Australia doesn't ship to New Zealand, but that's his call. Hyper Seal is a hybrid sealant that is part SiO2.
