The first significant difference is the chemistry.
Dr David Ghodoussi, an Organic Chemist and founder of Optimum Polymer Technologies explains
it best. “Opti-Coat is a pre-polymer that cross links and forms a continuous film on the surfaces it is
applied to, similar to a single component isocyanate that forms a clear coat finish. Opti-Coat also reacts
with the substrate that it is applied to so it will not delaminate”.
"As far as the durability, it is similar to urethane clear coats. It will not wash away or break down,
however, you can polish it over time ! The hardness starts at 6-7 but will increase over time to 9H as it is
exposed to heat. Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch & mar resistance, and release
properties than any automotive coating in use.”
Translated so we can all understand that – Opti-Coat is not a wax or polymer paint sealant that will
degrade over short periods of time. Or a paint protection product that requires a special “soft wash” or
pH neutral shampoo to remain on the surface for any extended period of time. It is a permanent, clear
coat finish very similar to your factory clear coat, only harder, and with higher resistance to chemical
The second significant difference is the thickness of the coating.
A single layer of Opti-Coat measures approximately 2 microns in thickness. Or 100 times thicker than
your typical wax or paint sealant measuring in at 0.02 microns.
What this means to your vehicle is that any damage inflicted on the surface is absorbed by the Optimum
Coating. This is particularly significant in relation to scratches and swirls in the paint work that inevitably
build up over time. Not only will the Opti-Coat resist damage far better than factory finishes, but the
coating itself can eventually be removed and reapplied. Protecting and preserving your factory coating,
and restoring the vehicle to “better than new” condition.

The Optimum clear coating “Opti-Coat” is all about vehicle protection. But why it is
different from any other protective products?
