Opti Coat Info

Any of you guys or girl have any dealings with Opti Coat pro and if so what's your opinion on it? I have read it seals in the paint and protects it from getting scratched and contaminents from sticking to the paint. I've read its a lifetime coverage once applied. Any thoughts. There is a shop in my area that charges $495 for the Opti Coat Pro.

It's a ceramic clear coat. Pretty much prevents swirls and scratches. Someone else that was on here had it and liked it..... Look into Ceramic Pro America also. I think it's a bit more durable. I posted a link on Facebook about it today.

Yes you did sir. Because of you, I am interested. Lol. I was also looking into Ceramic Pro as well. I hear both Opti Coat pro and Cermaic Pro are very similar and both very good. The Ceramic Pro is around $1,000 dollars for the application. I had made contact with the installer who was down in Richmond Virginia.

I also spoke with an installer today that works with Opti Clear Pro near me and that $ 795 for application. Both come with 5 year warranty but will last for the life of the car and beyond. So I'm told

If I ever get a car with brand new perfect paint that's the first thing I will do. Won't ever have to buff or polish the paint again. And you won't have to be super careful cleaning it either.

Not really true. Opti-coat can and will scratch...easier then you think. Care needs to be taken when washing and drying the car regardless of the surface coating. The opti-coat layer is only 2 to 3 microns thick, and will wear away over time if it has to be repeatedly polished to remove swirl marks induced from poor washing practices.

Agreed. It's not going to make the car impervious to swirls or scratches, it's just there as a "last line of defense" you'll still want wax and to be careful when washing.
