  1. New Member- New Coating

    You can use Hyper Seal 12 hours after OCP application - and wash the vehicle with soap 7 days after...
  2. Opti coat No wash Sign?

    They are supplied to OCP Pro Installers - you might ask Chasaty if they can be purchased (chasaty@opticoat.com).
  3. Ferrex and Opti-Coat Pro

    FerreX will not remove or reduce Opti-Coat Pro and makes a terrific decontaminant.
  4. New Member- New Coating

    Welcome to the Optimum Forum. Optimum suggests not getting Opti-Coat Pro wet for 12 hours, so you should be good. The hydrophobic characteristics should be in force. I suggest you contact the pro installer and ask them to review the issue.

    Welcome to the OPT Forum, Ed, we have a growing and very active international presence.
  6. Water Spots on Top of Opti-Coat

    we've only tested Maguiars, but Mother's should work as well.
  7. Are there "refresher" sprays for opticoat pro+

    for normal decontamination, spray on and let dwell should be all that's necessary.
  8. BRS Storage and Care

    I store the BRS in a covered bucket with ONR solution (about half way) and with my clay towel draped over - keeps the sponge and towel moist but not soaked. Occasionally I add to or replace the solution - I go by feel and smell, there's no timetable for frequency, assume it's dependent on bacteria growth.
  9. Water Spots on Top of Opti-Coat

    Kristian, I've answered by email, but MDR is the less aggressive water spot remover (Optimum always goes from least aggressive to most in suggestions). If the Maguiars Wheel Cleaner is acid, it should work.
  10. Alternative methods

    It is indeed a small world! If using Optimum compounds/polishes, an ONR wash is all that's necessary before Coating.
  11. Alternative methods

    Optimum created Paint Prep to replace IPA in coating installations. IPA works but is less effective for this purpose than Paint Prep, FYI.
  12. Water Spots on Top of Opti-Coat

    Great - credit goes to Dann Williams who did the original experimentation to find a water spot solution.
  13. Onr in washer fluid

    I've used it successfully, but only as an additive - you still need traditional fluid to avoid freezing.
  14. Water Spots on Top of Opti-Coat

    spray on, let dwell for a minute or 2, wash off with lot's of water.
  15. Optiseal

    Opti-Seal can be used on vinyl, interior and exterior -
  16. Water Spots on Top of Opti-Coat

    It's unlikely the spots will disappear after this many days. The ultimate water spot remover (that does not effect Opti-Coat Pro) is wheel cleaner - Meguiars Hot Rims Chrome Wheel Cleaner has been effective.

    You will love it...and have the best looking Tesla in sight!
  18. Figuring out Opti-coat Maintenance

    The Opti-Coat line is designed to give installers a dedicated product to offer to Coating customers, sizes are convenient for end users, and there is a comparable Optimum product in a variety of sizes. It's still a new product line and that's the marketing strategy. Opti-Coat No Rinse can be mixed in the same ratios for clay lube or instant detailer as ONR. For some reason OID was a forgotten product to me - I used Opti-Clean or ONR at instant detailer ratio for spot cleaning/pre-spray until I tested the OID on stubborn water spots on an OCP+ car and found it worked well. Now I keep a bottle of OID in the car for bugs/tar/bird bombs/etc...so it works great on Coatings!
  19. Rubbing off gloss coat?

    Gloss-Coat should not come off due to aggressive rubbing (as long as you use a decent quality microfiber) - it would take more abrasion than that. Paint Prep will not remove or degrade Gloss-Coat.
  20. Figuring out Opti-coat Maintenance

    ONR, Opti-Clean, and Instant Detailer are all good ways to safely dry your car after rain and all have advantages - ONR is the cheapest, Opti-Clean has the most cleaning power, and Instant Detailer adds gloss. Rain water itself is pure but can mix with stuff already on your paint to leave spots/residue that requires cleaning. The Opti-Coat line is priced to allow pro installers to resell at a profit, FYI.

    Lowe, you should be in our Marketing Dept (if we had one) - nice!
  22. New from Nova Scotia, Canada

    Welcome to all things Optimum - lot's of talent on this Forum!
  23. Opti-Lens Headlight Restoration Longevity

    Optimum has a number of installers who specialize in headlights (a lucrative market given now many yellowed lens I see and how expensive replacements are) - several provide their own warranties. One successful installer in Hawaii ( a tough UV locale) offers a 2 year warranty and has had no problems. FYI

    welcome to OPT Forum, sounds like you have a handle on the products/processes already!
  25. other brand products will not reduce OCP - it's tough!
