Silicone Carbide vs SIO2 based coatings.

Recommended Posts

I have been listening to some of Optimum's podcasts, and heard Dr G. talk alot about how Opti-Coat (I am assuming Pro) is Silicone Carbide based, which creates a permanent bond to the clear coat, while other coatings are SIO2 based.  Since Gloss Coat isn't a permanent coating, I am assuming it isn't Silicone Carbide based.

Is Gloss Coat an SIO2 based coating or something else?  What  are its benefits vs other coatings?

Gloss Coat is a hybrid coating consisting of SiO2 and SiC.  According to Yvan of optimum, one advantage is that gloss coat does not require a rejuvenation type product to maintain it's properties.

...but from your experience maybe it should!

Yes from personal experience I would say it needs some sort of maintenance product.  Which is probably why hyper seal is being introduced.
