Why Opti-Coat Pro Coatings
Opti-coat offers superior chemistry to the other coatings on the market. Opti-coat is a silicon carbide (SiC) based coating system which bonds to the resins in modern clear coat. Most other coatings are silicon dioxide based (SiO2). The main difference in the bases is that SiC will cross link with resins in the clear coat forming a permanent bond meanwhile SiO2 coatings are usually suspended nanoparticles that will sit on top of the clear coat.
Opti-Coat is manufactured by Optimum Polymer Technologies. Optimum was founded in 2001 by Dr. David Ghodoussi, an Organic Chemist, who prior to starting Optimum worked in the automotive paint industry for over a decade. Dr. Ghodoussi saw the need for a change in the way we take care of modern paint and has designed a full system based on a user-friendly, safe and environmentally conscious approach.
Optimum Car Care Products and Opti-Coat are all manufactured here in America in Optimums facilities based in Memphis Tennessee.
Opti-Coat has 3 different Professional Paint Specific coatings in Paint Guard, Opti-Coat Pro and Opti-Coat Pro Plus available through authorized dealers as well as a few other substrate specific professional coatings such as Opti-Guard for Fabric and Leather, Opti-Glass Pro and Opti-Metal Pro.
McSteamies Auto Spa is not only an authorized dealer but we have taken the steps to become an Opti-Coat Certified Authorized Dealer. Our Certified Installers have been trained directly by Opti-Coat to professionally apply Opti-Coat Pro Coatings.
Opti-Coat Pro Plus
Opti-Coat Pro Plus Delivers More Gloss & Greater Protection!
The Opti-Coat Pro Plus Ceramic Paint Protection package now delivers even more gloss and slickness than ever before, while still maintaining the same chemical structure that has made it renowned as the ultimate protective paint coating.
The advanced formulation not only delivers amazing gloss and protection, it also provides increased anti water spotting and hydrophobic properties to maintain the perfect finish in the long term.
Opti-Coat Pro Plus is an enhanced 2 step version of Opti-Coat Pro. The first step, Opti-Coat Pro, is a ceramic clear coating with superior resistance to scratching, chemical etching, fading due to UV and provides outstanding release properties. Opti-Coat Pro Plus adds great gloss and slickness for a fantastic shine and long term paint protection with a 7 year warranty.
Opti-Coat Pro is a hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and protection from chemical etching due to environmental impacts.
The Opti-Coat Pro pre-polymer cross links, and forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to, similar to a single component isocyanate that forms a clear coat finish.
Opti-Coat Pro has better chemical resistance, scratch & mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints and can also be used to protect metal and hard plastic surfaces.
Optimum Paint Guard
Protect Your Investment With Paint Guard!
Optimum Paint Guard comes with a Three Year Warranty and is only available through Authorized Opti-Coat Pro Installers.
Optimum Paint Guard is a ceramic paint coating designed to protect the paint surface from bird lime, acid etching and other corrosive substances. Optimum Paint Guard will produce a harder than factory finish that is noticeably easier to maintain and is more resistant to the paint damage that can occur as a result of daily cleaning processes.
Improve Driver Visibility with Opti-Glass Pro!
Optimum Opti-Glass Pro is designed to chemically bond to silica based surfaces to form a durable, hydrophobic coating that provides long term protection to glass and other silica based surfaces and to increase chip resistance, scratch and mar resistance and protect from water staining.
Opti-Glass Pro provides increased chip resistance and will dramatically improve the drivers vision when driving in poor weather conditions with water being repelled from the surface at significantly lower speed than other products on the market. Opti-Glass Pro provides unmatched durability with multi-year protection.
How Does it Work?
Opti-Glass Pro works by creating an extremely high contact angle between the glass surface and water. This superhydrophobic surface means that the water droplets struggle to cling to the windscreen and roll off or are blown off as air passes over the vehicle. This enhances the performance of your windscreen wipers or negates the need to use them at all!
Additionally, Opti-Glass Pro can increase windscreen chip resistance by increasing what is known as the coefficient of friction. This means, as an object comes in contact with the windscreen at speed, it is more likely to be deflected than to damage the glass.
Opti-Guard Leather & Vinyl
Maximum UV Protection for Leather & Vinyl
Opti-Guard Leather & Vinyl creates a hydrophobic coating with concentrated UV absorbers to protect leather seats and dashboards from premature aging, cracking, and other damage such as color transfer and staining of leather seats.
Opti-Guard Leather & Vinyl is an acrylic hybrid resin that creates a strong, yet flexible coating for these softer surfaces and high resistance to chemicals. The coating contains special matting agents to maintain the original factory appearance of the surface it is applied to.
How Does it Work?
Opti-Guard Leather & Vinyl is applied liberally to the surface and left to be absorbed by the substrate. The resin penetrates the surface to produce a permanent bond within the material. This is particularly important for leather seats that are subjected to constant wear and abrasion. As the coating soaks deep within the leather, it is resistant to be removed through normal use.
Superhydrophobic, Long-term Protection.
Opti-Guard Fabric creates a superhydrophobic coating to protect fabric seats, carpets, fabric convertible tops and other textile surfaces. When liquids come in contact with Opti-Guard Fabric and closed loop textiles, the surface repels the substance and liquids roll off without penetrating or staining the material. Additionally, for materials with an open structure such as plush carpets where liquids are able to penetrate the surface, the coating prevents any penetration of the fibers and permanent staining of the material.
How Does it Work?
Opti-Guard Fabric forms a strong bond with the fibers to prevent removal during cleaning. This bond between the substrate and the coating creates a surface that produces a very high contact angle when in contact with liquids. Due to this extremely high contact angle, liquids are unable to attach or penetrate the fibers and are repelled in droplets. When combined with Optimum Fabric Cleaner & Protectant, the Opti-Guard system provides permanent protection for these surfaces.
The Ultimate Solution For All Metal Surfaces!
Opti-Metal Coat is a rapid curing ceramic coating designed to bond to all metal surfaces, to prevent ongoing oxidation and damage during cleaning processes.
Opti-Metal Coat creates a protective barrier with an extremely strong bond to metal surfaces and high resistance to acids and chemicals. The hydrophobic properties provide easy ongoing maintenance for all automotive, marine, aviation and industrial applications.
How Does it Work?
Opti-Metal Coat has a rapid curing process to prevent absorption and premature failure on porous metals. The ceramic resin solidifies on and within the upper surface shielding from oxidation. Due to the silicon carbide structure, the resin is not removed during cleaning and the metal surfaces are protected from chemicals that would otherwise etch and damage the metal finish.
Opti-Metal Coat is specifically designed for bare material substrates. Opti-Metal Coat will protect non-clear coated aluminum, brass, chrome, and other highly polished metals from tarnishing, oxidizing, and keeps the high luster of the polish.
