Item Description:

Optimum Gloss-Coat is a semi-permanent coating that protects various parts of your vehicle against the elements of nature. Optimum Gloss-Coat is designed to be applied to painted surfaces, wheels, plastic trim, bumpers, aluminum, and chrome, providing the utmost in protection and shine. Optimum Gloss-Coat leaves treated surfaces smooth, slick, and well protected in any environment. A single application lasts up to two years.

Optimum Gloss-Coat forms an extra layer of clear coat over your vehicle, significantly increasing the gloss, slickness, and resistance to etching caused by harsh detergents. What’s more, Optimum Gloss-Coat is less prone to scratching and marring, making it easier to keep your vehicle swirl and scratch free.

Optimum Gloss-Coat creates what is called a self-cleaning effect. Dirt cannot adhere to surfaces that are coated with Gloss-Coating, making it considerably easier to maintain the glossy, smooth finish of the coating. Your vehicle will stay noticeably cleaner in between washes.

Optimum Gloss-Coat is easy to maintain. Simply wash your vehicle using Optimum Car Wash or Optimum No Rinse Wash & Shine. If you find nothing more relaxing than hand-applying a coat of your favorite carnauba paste wax to your vehicle, rest assured that you can continue this tradition because Optimum formulated Gloss-Coat so non-abrasive waxes and sealants will adhere.

Because Optimum Gloss-Coat is semi-permanent, the paint finish has to be properly prepared before applying it. Any blemishes or contamination on the paint will be locked in so remove them first! On a properly prepared paint finish, Optimum Gloss-Coat will look clear, smooth, and clean.

1. Polish paint to remove any defects. 
2. Clean surface with 15% IPA solution to remove all polishing oils, waxes, and silicones.
3. Prime the applicator by making an X pattern across the pad. Only a few drops will be needed for each subsequent panel.
4. Wipe Optimum Gloss-Coat onto a single panel at a time in a thin layer using two directions, in a circular or front to back direction. 
5. Within 5 minutes, inspect the panel with adequate lighting looking for any thick areas that have not flashed away to clear. 
6. Use foam applicator or paint safe microfiber to even out any areas where you see streaks. This step is key, as any spots not leveled will have to be polished if allowed to cure. Panels will feel a bit tacky and will be self-leveling during cure time, so avoid any unnecessary touching, wiping, or contact to produce the best results.
7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each panel where application is desired.

Not recommended for glass.

Will definitely buy this coating again. Application was very easy and it looks great. Can't comment on longevity yet, but looks like another great product from Optimum

Tricky to install but hopefully worth it
August 6, 2015
So like most I looked at all of the reviews and 'how-to' guides prior to using this yesterday. The main points I would make vs. what I'd previously read are as follows: 1) I found it went on easily and there was more than enough in the syringe for one car (Cayman GT4 - hood and fenders got 3 coats). 2) Looking for high spots within 15 minutes is easier said than done. Some high spots are visible from many angles or by using a torch, but others are pretty much invisible until you get exactly the right light (which might be the next day and too late). I found that I'd have to take the car out of the garage and into the sun occasionally to be sure I'd gotten everything. The application method I ended up veering towards was giving every panel a light wipe in 15 minutes... not just where I could see obvious high spots. 3) You can - on occasion - remove a high spot after more than 20 minutes but it takes a lot of rubbing, and you'd better have a pristine microfiber to avoid marring. This only happened to me in two small areas... I'm guessing you couldn't remove a huge smear that way. 4) I couldn't get any success with the included sponge other than soaking up lots of product. I used the CarPro applicator wrapped in the CarPro micro suede to good effect. 5) Applying to one panel at a time is easy... but at 20 mins a panel would take a LONG time. Doing multiple panels and going back to each before they hit the 20 minute mark is much more efficient, BUT more risky. You have to be very methodical and remember the timing for each panel (I suggest writing down the times for each panel on a sheet). Also, you can't be interrupted by the wife, neighbor, or whomever like you can with other products in case a panel 'ages out' or gets missed. 6) I'm not one for noticing significant differences in gloss with multiple coats of a product, but I felt there was a significant difference in this product between coats 1 and 2. Time will tell on durability, but very happy with the application.
- Love the idea of a product you don't have to 'rub' or 'buff' for application. Makes it much less likely that you'll mar the paint. Perfect application method for new, pristine paint - Simple application method and not as 'tricky' as I expected (just be very careful with light sources and timing) - If the longevity proves out as expected I think this is acceptable value for the small amount of product you receive
- Not sure the included applicator is the best applicator for this (or my technique was poor)

Very easy to apply this coating. The coating just melts into the paint and I barely had to level out any high spots. Use with Car Pro applicator block and micro suede's and you can easily do 2 coats on a full size car. Oh yeah, the gloss is amazing!

I have used a number of other coatings, yet I always find my way back to Opti-Coat 2.0. My vehicle stays cleaner, longer and doesn't marr near as easily. The only negative I have about Opti-Coat 2.0 is that it is a little grabby when compared to others, but if you want to you can top it with a wax and will make it a little slicker. The positives of OC 2.0 by far outweigh the cons. If you are on the fence, don't go with anything else besides Opti-Coat 2.0.

Happy with Opti-Coat
July 23, 2013
I applied Opti-Coat to a dark gray colored car. I viewed at least an hour worth of u-tube videos on how to apply it. I was somewhat concerned with the disclaimer that “this is a permanent coating” and the warning of “streaking”. I prepped the car with compound and polish, followed by Car Pro Eraser to get a clean oil free surface. I first tried the black neoprene hockey puck applicator. I found this difficult to use except for perfectly flat surfaces. After doing part of the hood, I switched to the yellow soft foam pad that came with Opti-Coat for the remainder of the car. I found it better to add Opti_Coat to the pad in an X pattern instead of using a few drops as described in the instructions. Application to the car was very easy and uniform once the pad became saturated with Opti-Coat. It was easy to see a thin film being laid down as I went across the surface with the pad. I added more Opti_Coat to the pad when I felt the pad starting to stick and not gliding smoothly over the surface. I went over obvious coating high spots with a micro fiber towel as described in the u-tube videos. The next morning, as I viewed the car with the sun coming it at an angle, my heart sank. There were small but very obvious Opti-Coat streaks at 3 locations. I applied Maguiars Ultimate Compound on a hand polishing pad. The streaks buffed out without much effort. I then reapplied Opti-Coat to these locations and they blended in perfectly. There is more than enough Opti_Coat in the syringe to do a mid-size 4 door car. I did not apply it to the windows or lights. After 4 weeks and 4 washings I’m pleased with Opti_Coat

Not many things work da way the seller say they do, opti-coat do. I have a black 2007 elipse spyder and it made the black a much deeper black. Opti-coat 2.0 have been on my car for a week, I ran thru rain yesterday and the wind from driving blew the water and dust off. I'll update after a few months.
ease of use
