    NEW ZENTOOL 15E2

    The new Zentool ZEN-15E2 Dual Action Polisher represents one of the latest advancements in machine polishing technology with its 15mm orbit considered amongst many detailers to be the ideal balance between cutting and finishing ability. With an orbit (throw) of 15mm, the dual action polisher has evolved to become a leader in efficient cutting power while still maintaining the safe operation expected from a DA polisher. The Zentool ZEN-15E2 is powered by a new, highly efficient 600W motor that produces the torque required to quickly remove heavy paint defects while maintaining the lowest noise levels and smoothest action you will find on a dual action polisher!

    "New Product Friday"?

    Thanks for the reminder, Setec, I sometimes concentrate on new "chemicals" and forget the "accessories". Should be up to date...for now!

    OPC Foam dried on glass

    to my knowledge only happened in concentrated form, but it is something to be aware of.
  6. You might consider GPS, the sprayable version of Poli-Seal - I find it easier to use.

    OPC Foam dried on glass

    old PC labels stated "do not let dry on surface". I've had personal experience with PC etching glass, that's why we ALWAYS remind users to rinse thoroughly.
  8. Poli-Seal is a whole different animal that the Hyper products (even GPS) - it's an all-in-one that cleans/polishes/seals. It has much less cut than any of the dedicated compounds or polishes. It works well on light marring but it's sweet spot is as a one step product.

    Optimum Opti-Bond vs CarPro PERL

    interesting observation Edmund about your second application seeming to have a richer shade - Dr G told me years ago that many of Optimum's products have a cumulative effect (ONR, Wax, Seal, Protectant Plus, etc) but I assumed he was being a "homer". Over time I've noticed (as have others) the truth of this comment. My cars stay cleaner and are easier to wash with ONR, etc.

    Optimum TAR remover

    The new TAR Remover has not started production due to a delay in receiving a component. FerreX is an excellent tar remover as well...

    OPC Foam dried on glass

    I've never seen Power Clean stain, but it will etch glass if allowed to dry. You may have to get the D/A out and polish...

    OPTIMUM GELCOAT RESTORER

    Optimum Gelcoat Restorer (GCR) is engineered to return Gelcoat to its factory finish without the need for polishing. GCR rebuilds the Gelcoat keeping the original thickness and restoring the gloss. GCR will restore your Gelcoat and protect it with its included UV protection.• Easy to use.• No polishing required. • Long term durability. • Easy to maintain. Directions: 1. Remove loose oxidation using pure Optimum Power Clean and a brush or mild scuff pad. 2. Rinse the surface thoroughly and dry. 3. Wearing gloves and eye protection, apply GCR to the surface in overlapping circular motions. If the Gelcoat was heavily oxidized, the GCR will soak in. Do not over apply. 4. Once dry to the touch (20-30 minutes), apply a second coat. 5. Depending on the level of oxidation, up to 4 coats may be required. 6. To maintain the restored surface, wash with Optimum No Rinse (ONR) and apply Optimum Car Wax regularly.

    OPTIMUM GELCOAT RESTORER

    This is specifically for gelcoat (the differences between gelcoat and clear are substantial). I know Dr G is looking at clear coat replacement/repair products.

    Using Hyper Compound and Hyper Polish together

    Absolutely correct - Hyper Synergy

    Paint Prep

    You understand all Optimum chemicals are proprietary formulas, right? Paint Prep was created to be a better cleaner of wax/sealant/residue than IPA had proven to be, for more successful Coating applications.

    Opticoat Pro Plus and Bug and Tar remover

    You are correct, only abrassives will remove OCP+, bug and tar remover are safe to use. DO NOT use a bug scratch pad, ever! (and welcome...)

    New Optimum user questions

    I actually use my drying towel after it's absorbed ONR from the paint (so damp) on my interior. For any heavy soil the pre-spray mix is good but rarely necessary.

    Decontaminating OptiCoat Pro+ surface

    Other possible decontamination chemicals = Power Clean (a good general decontam product) and MDR (removes mineral deposits). In general no chemical cleaner short of industrial acid will touch Opti-Coat Pro.

    Big Gold Sponge vs Big Red Sponge

    The cell structure of the Big Gold Sponge seems different. The BGS fills the Opti-Coat line of products and gives pro installers a designated line to sell only available from them or directly from Optimum.
