    Safety on household vinyl products.

    as an LSP (last step protection), yes, Opti-Seal or Spray Wax.

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    The major difference is ONRWW is rinseless and Opti-Clean is waterless, you don't need to over think it. ONRWW has more protection because is has Wax...

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    Opti-Clean can be used as a pre-spray or as an waterless alternative to ONR. Opti-Clean will not remove or effect other Optimum products.

    Opti-Seal is great on glass. I don't think it will cause any problems on PP, but have never heard of anyone testing it.

    Onr dilution rate with ro water

    welcome to Optimum - I'll let one of our international posters respond to your ratio, beyond my feeble mind to convert to US metrics (and I don't know what ro is...).

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    curious if you're considering using any Optimum products on a car? Using Spray Wax on vinyl would provide UV protection and shine, but it has no cleaning ability. For cleaning, Power Clean is our most powerful all purpose cleaner and Opti-Clean is stronger than ONR. Shelf life on compounds/polishes is 1 - 2 years. Cleaning products have pretty indefinite shelf life regardless of conditions.

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    Optimum Glass Clean & Protect is good on glass and works particularly well on Coated glass. I haven't tried Protectant Plus on window frames, not sure how much it's worth the effort or how durable it would be. I used GPS on counter tops and sinks - it's probably safe on faucets but remember it's got light polish in it.

    Optimum gloss coat water spots

    there is 1 more solution for water spots that will not remove Gloss-Coat. Acid wheel cleaners that contain hydrofluoric acid (Meguiars Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner for example) will remove water spots...that's Def Con 1.

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    any ONR application applied to ONR with Wax (really the only ONR I use) and yes, all Optimum products are safe for home use. I've found GPS is excellent on kitchen/bathroom counter tops and sinks - cleans/polish/seals - for instance.

    users have different experiences - I use the instant detailer ratio of 1:16 for windows but feel free to experiment.

    Product Recommendation for New Car

    Welcome to Optimum! No Rinse Wash & Wax + Opti-Seal will provide excellent protection but will have to be removed prior to Coating. You want bare clear coat before you apply Gloss-Coat, but it's easy to remove wax/sealant with IPA, Power Clean, or Paint Prep.

    Optimum gloss coat water spots

    water spots can hide - you can try vinegar or go to Optimum MDR. Water spots will not etch Gloss-Coat but do not use polish, it will remove your coating. Sometimes on a Coated car, the UV from direct sunlight will cause the spots to disappear.

    Safety on household vinyl products.

    1:128 is sufficient for a dirty car, so should be adequate for most any household task. Feel free to use a higher ratio, we're in business to sell product (tic).

    absolutely safe on every surface I've tested...and I've tested on about everything!

    How Do You Store Your Syringes?

    I've never taken special precautions with syringes, other than take inside during the winter. I've had several "gel" up - Opti-Lens (had been opened), Opti-Trim Protect (never used). I have syringes of the original Opti-Guard and a Gloss-Coat that are years old and never used...still liquid.

    How can I clean pump sprayer?

    I'd soak it in APC or dish detergent to see if the blockage dissolves.

    Heat resistance of Opti coat Pro?

    Opti-Coat Pro has been successfully applied to motorcycle engines, so heat is not a problem.

    Did my installer compromise my coat?

    with Opti-Coat Pro, no
  23. Ron@Optimum

    Did my installer compromise my coat?

    If the installer left it in his garage for 12 hours and applied Opti-Seal, rain will be no problem. Sun/heat has no effect on Coatings cure, it's moisture in the air that causes curing. A&J is right, car wash chemicals are harsh but will not hurt Opti-Coat Pro, however touch washes will abraid the Coating and will void the warranty.

    ONR on polisher pad

    because I don't do high volume polishing, I've never invested in the pad washer. I've used the Optimum model and know it's design was influenced by our pros (Dann and Yvan). Also recognize they have a mechanical component and can break or malfunction. Having said that, Optimum warranties all products.
