Orinda Auto Detail is proud to offer the commercial version of Opti-Coat clear coating to our Orinda, Lafayette, Moraga, and East Bay Area auto detail clients. Opti-Coat is a paint protection product manufactured by Optimum Polymer Technologies (OPT), which is dedicated to making your vehicle shine through modern polymers and advanced surface-friendly formulas. Only authorized installers can apply Opti-Coat paint protection to your vehicle, and Orinda Auto Detail is one of the very few authorized installers serving the entire San Francisco Bay Area.
Opti-Coat is a clear coat that has superior resistance to scratching and chemical etching. Opti-Coat is very strong because of its pre-polymer cross links, which forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to. Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch & mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint protection coating in use, making it a superior clear coat product. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints and can also be used to protect metal and hard plastic surfaces.
When you apply Opti-Coat to your vehicle’s surface, it will not wash away or break down over time. Opti-Coat bonds permanently with the factory coating, protecting the surface indefinitely and will not delaminate. Opti-Coat is thicker than other clear coating products, which allows Opti-Coat to better prevent scratches, swirl marks, or acidic environmental substances — like bird droppings or bugs — from affecting the paint. With Opti-Coat, your vehicle will maintain a clean, clear glossy coating a lot longer than a wax detail or a clear coating from an inferior product.
There are many benefits with Opti-Coat besides the obvious protection of the paint from scratches. Opti-Coat is hydrophobic, which means that water easily rolls off the paint, leaving your vehicle cleaner for a longer period of time. By maintaining a quality finish using Opti-Coat, your vehicle’s paint will not appear as worn, and this helps your vehicle maintain a solid resale value.
When you bring your vehicle to Orinda Auto Detail for an Opti-Coat clear coat installation, the clear coating becomes a permanent part of your vehicle’s paint protection system. Just like the factory clear coat bonds to the factory paint base coat, Opti-Coat bonds chemically to the factory clear coat. Here are the steps we take at Orinda Auto Detail to apply Opti-Coat:
1. Our authorized Opti-Coat technicians will assess the paintwork for defects and contamination.
2. All surface contamination and any necessary defects are removed.
3. Once this stage is complete, the paintwork is prepped and cleaned using an alcohol based cleaner and ready for coating.
4. Once the application of Opti-Coat is complete, the surface is touch dry within 30 minutes.
5. The Optimum Clear Coating continues to cross-link and harden, and within 12 hours it is resistant to liquids such as water and can be driven as normal by the client.
6. Opti-Coat will then continue to harden over the next 30 days as it is exposed to heat.
