Lux Auto Spa is San Diego’s Premier Opti-Coat Pro Installer!
What is Opti-Coat Pro?
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 hardplastic surfaces.
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.
What Makes Opti-Coat Pro+ So Different?
Opti-Coat Pro+ is not a paint protection wax, sealant or nano coating that will wash away, or break down over time. Opti-Coat bonds permanently with the factory coating, protecting the surface indefinitely and will not delaminate.
A single layer of Optimum Clear Coating measures up to 2 microns in thickness. When compared to other paint protection products, Opti-Coat Pro is more than 100 times thicker, with tests showing a wax coating measuring less than 0.02 microns.
This allows Opti-Coat Pro to effectively absorb damage that would otherwise affect the factory paint layers. Swirl marks and light scratches are not only decreased by the harder Optimum Ceramic Coating, the factory paint is protected and preserved.
Opti-Coat Pro+ is completely resistant to acidic environmental substances such as bird lime (bird droppings). Unlike your factory clear coating that can be permanently damaged, Opti-Coat will not etch or dissolve when in contact with these substances, and a clean, glossy clear coating is maintained.
One of the most important features in keeping your vehicle clean is the ability of the protective layer to release water. Opti-Coat features a low sliding angle which allows water drops to release easily causing an extreme lotus affect.
Opti-Coat has developed a reputation among professionals as the richest, deepest, highest gloss coating available. It is important to note that proper depth and gloss is achieved with proper correction and polishing by an experience detailer with a passion for what they do. However after they have invested countless hours in their craft, it is only fitting to both protect their work long term and add that extra rich depth of the Opti-Coat coating available.
They come in all shapes and sizes. Many are highly acidic and can wreak havoc on your paint! They impact the front of your vehicle at high speed and as their body’s explode the acidic contents spills out onto your paint. Within minutes it can eat through a layer of traditional wax before it dries and bonds hard to the surface in the heat of the sun. If the bug is highly acidic it will begin the process of etching into your clearcoat in a matter of hours. Each time it is exposed to moisture more acids are released and eventually you have permanent damage to your paint.
With 3µm of Opti-Coat between the bugs and your paint they can no longer cause permanent damage to your paint. To start with the coating is resistant to acids and its rare any mark will be left on the coating with reasonable washing schedules. In the rare case a bug does leave something behind you can be rest assured your paint is still safe beneath the coating.
As we touched on previously: dust, dirt, and contaminants do not bond to your Opti-Coat barrier in the way they do to paint with only a coat of wax or sealant applied. Any dirt or dust that does attach to the coating is MUCH more easily removed upon the next wash without having to scrub or clay the vehicle. Opti-Coat offers dirt and water shedding abilities beyond that of any other product available. With the self-cleaning affect provided by Opti-Coat, most dirt slides right off during a wash.
Waxes and sealants obviously offer no swirl resistance. When you wash, dry, or touch your paint at any time you have the potential to scratch the surface. The scratches we are talking about here are very fine and referred to as “swirls” but as they build up the level of gloss you see as reflections and depth to your paint withers. These swirls refract light away from your eyes which is the cause of a dulled appearance to your paint.
Opti-Coat has been proven to resist these fine swirls when properly maintained and cared for. It should be noted that no coating is swirl proof and it is important to use only high quality wash mitts and drying towels or a blower.
We highly recommend allowing your Authorized Opti-Coat Installer to either maintain your vehicle or train you in proper wash techniques and provide access for purchase of the incredibly soft and plush CarPro Merino Wool Wash Mitt.
The most dangerous enemy your paint will likely see in its life is bird droppings. They can vary in level of toxicity but it is well known by professionals that a bird dropping can dissolve wax on contact, eat deep into paint, and leave an etching within minutes. With Opti-Coat you have a barrier which resists bird droppings and allows you time to discover and remove them so they cannot cause permanent damage to your paint.
Anybody that has just waxed their car will tell you – within a couple hours they can see the dust building up on it and after a drive that dust is still there. It doesn’t blow off and it does accumulate on the carnauba wax layer. Polymer sealants are a little better and stay cleaner than waxes however they too allow dirt and dust to stick to them. Compared to wax, dust and dirt retention is lowered up to 90% with Opti-Coat. Of course some will gather and collect over time but you will enjoy the beauty of your vehicle between washes when protected by Opti-Coat where as with other products the paint will look dirty faster.
Protection from rail, brake dust, and environmental contaminants:
In the air around us and on the highways, all sorts of contaminants attack your paint. Iron particles coming off the brakes of other vehicles can lodge into your paint and allow moisture to penetrate around them. Over time the oxidation process from moisture and sun break down around these iron particles and eat microscopic holes into your paint. Opti-Coat puts an end to this with a thick barrier that does not allow these contaminants to reach the paint surface and are removed much more easily.
