Here is the description from Optimum......Opti-Coat (Opti-Guard) is a hard wearing, aftermarket, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and chemical etching from environmental impacts. It provides permanent protection for all factory paints, and can also be applied to exterior glass, metal and hard plastic surfaces.

Opti-Coat is not a wax or sealant like other products on the market. It is a ceramic clear coating very similar to factory type clear coats. A layer of Opti-Coat measures approx. 2 microns in thickness, or about 100 times thicker than your typical wax or sealant. Unlike paint protection sealants such as PTFE, Nano Sealants, GlassPlexin that degrade over time and are easily removed through washing with water or chemicals, Opti-Coat does not degrade and cannot be removed by chemicals such as heavy duty truck wash or even caustic degreasers. It is totally resistant to these chemicals and produces a permanent film that is chemically bonded with the factory paint layers. Opti-Coat is effectively the vehicles new outer clear coat. It is far more resistant to chemical etching than factory clear coats and far more resistant than competing paint protection sealants. The 2 micron layer also provides a thick buffer between any damage and the factory paintwork.


Opti Coat also helps make your paint more scratch resistant. Also, bugs and road grime will come off so much easier. You can apply wax over Opti Coat if you want to, but there is really no need. Wax or sealant will not bond to the very well and it won't last very long because of this.

Had my GT Opti Coated back in Oct and the sh*t is amazing. For clarification, it's 3x harder than factory clear coat and that's huge.

It can only be buffed off with a rotary buffer, my detailer told me back when I got it done to have it redone every 2yrs for optimal clarity and protection, but for detailing enthusiasts like me or even professionals I'm sure you got easily go 2yrs+

Installation process and cost varies. I've been becoming good friends with my detailer (the best detailer in my area) and he's starting to let me in and show me what and how professional detailing works.

1st, pro detailers will only put OptiCoat and a freshly "paint corrected" or brand new car (it can't have marring/swirls/scratches/etching/waterspots/dirt/debris etc. bc it'll be sealed in there indefinitely and the product will have more of a chance to come off).

OptiCoat is applied in a cool environment via foam applicator pad, although it is very hard to apply. If applied wrong, you'll have 'smear/splotch' marks that have to be buffed off and opticoat re-applied.

Curing takes 3-6months, car can't get wet for 7 days after application. Best curing conditions = hot and dry climate conditions.

The also have Opti Coat 2.0 now. Anybody can put this on. It is easier to work with and it takes long for it to cure, so if you have some spots where you applied too much, you have more time to fix it before it fully cures.

Opti Coat 2.0 has the same durability from what I've seen.

Beautiful GT/CS btw. Reason why I haven't commented on the looks yet bc it's just too difficult to capture how good it looks in pictures. In pics it just looks like a clean car, in person its indescribable.

I completely agree... Hopefully in a few years this treatment will become more known and standard
