 Optimum Clear Coat Restorer is a single component, self leveling wipe on clear coat. The simple to use formula is the answer for restoring dam-aged clear coat paint.

DIRECTIONS:

1. Clean the surface with Optimum Power Clean to remove any greases or waxes.

2. Decontaminate the surface with an Optimum Clay Towel, Mitt, or Bar.

3. Compound the paint with Optimum Hyper Compound or Optimum Compound II and a wool pad to abrade the surface. Remove the compound residue.

4. Wipe surface with Optimum Paint Prep. Make sure surface is dry. Blow out all cracks to remove moisture and dust.

5. Apply only in a well ventilated area with panel and air temperatures between 60?-85? F (15?-30? C).

6. Wearing protective eyewear, a respirator rated for organic vapors, and nitrile gloves, saturate the edge of the supplied microfiber applicator with Optimum Clear Coat Restorer (CCR).

7. Apply in a back and forth motion, keeping the edge of applicator saturated, and working the wet edge one panel at a time.  Apply 1-2 coats back to back leveling with the applicator.

8. Avoid recoating or touching the surface after 5 minutes.

9. Optimum CCR is dry to the touch in 30 minutes and fully cured in 48 hours.

10. Allow 12 hours or more before exposing to water or temperatures below 60? F (15? C).

11. Optimum CCR can be protected with Optimum Car Wax, Opti-Seal, or Gloss-Coat after 48 hours or more of curing.

According to Dann Williams, he has applied outside, but be aware of wind/dust.  Again CCR works on damaged clear coat, but not failed/failing clear coat.  Don't ask how to tell the difference...over my pay grade.

That would seem the logical use - not sure how economical to coat an entire car, but leading edges would make sense.

Since it's common to coat new cars with Opti-Coat or Gloss-Coat (for non-pros)...it would seem if that was a logical use it would be undermining much of what the certified installers currently do/use, wouldn't it?  Or is the CCR a pro-only product?

Setec, none of the new Optimum products are Pro only, but only GCR is available today.  While Optimum Coatings (Pro and Retail) are being applied on boats today, they are not as effective in Marine usages - not as mar proof or durable on gelcoat.  Dr G felt he could produce a Marine product with improved performance and formulated GCR.  His is a restless mind and he hates to over promise/under perform - ergo a Marine line.

According to Yvan - to know when Clear Coat Restorer will be effective, if a damp microfiber makes the paint look good, CCR will work.  If it's hazing, flaking or peeling, you need a body shop.

Any word whenbthe new products will be available to the public? I bought a new truck and want to give it the Opti-works treatment and would like to apply the new Opti-stuff like the tire gel.  

Thanks

Matt.

I understand the Clear Coat Restorer will be available sometime during the first quarter, nothing yet on the other products.

Thanks Ron, 

I’ll get the “old stuff” and remove with PC once the “new stuff” is released.
