ONR Blue vs ONR Yellow

Recommended Posts

My van is coated with OPT Pro. My dealer sold me the yellow ONR as that was supposed to be designed for coated cars. 
 

but can I use the Yellow ONR also on the interior and interior windows ?

yes, the yellow ONR (Opti-Coat) can  be used in all the ways the blue ONR (Optimum) can be used.  The Opti-Coat version is superior on Coated cars.

Thankfully a straightforward answer. Only wish you had clearer naming and abbreviations for your products - both referred to as ONR, but different. Same again for MDR in the Optimum and Opti-Coat versions, or identical product costing more due to fancier packaging and selling channel (dealer only)?

Well, the names are different, the packaging and sized are different as well, along with pricing.  We don't assign abbreviations, though we use them.  Blame Dr G for the "Opti Everything" confusion!

Do you know what makes Opti-Coat NR superior on coated cars?

because it was specifically formulated for superior performance on ceramic coating (why it's named Opti-Coat).

Opti-Coat No Rinse includes a Gloss Enhancer similar to that found in Optimum Instant Detailer which will improve the shine of any vehicle over the use of standard ONR.  However I found when using a drying aid such as Opti-Coat Hyper Seal with OCNR can result in slight streaking that requires additional passes with drying media .  I prefer to use standard ONR with Hyper Seal to avoid the streaking issues.  I think the combination of gloss enhancer in OCNR plus drying aid is too much to apply in single step.  So if not using drying aid, stick with OCNR for best results but if using drying aid stick with standard ONR for easier application.
