Your Opti-Coat Experience Starts Here.

Our purpose is to provide our clients with a product that is the most durable, innovative and protective coating available.” – Mr. Vitale

AUTHORIZED OPTI-COAT PRO3 INSTALLER

OPTI-COAT BENEFITS

  • Physical resistance against micro scratches. (9H+)
  • Permanent. Does not diminish, unlike waxes or sealants, can only be removed by heavy paint correction or sanding down.
  • Hydrophobic. Water repels and beads aggressively away from the paint, creating a self-cleaning effect.
  • Intense Gloss. Increases depth and clarity. 
  • Chemical Resistance.
  • Eliminates regularly polishing or waxing your car.

OPTI-COAT PRO3 COMPLETE CERAMIC PROTECTION

POWERED BY SiC – Dr. G

“The primary function of a ceramic coating is to protect the surface it is applied to. SiO2 and TiO2 based resins will hydrolyze and diminish over time. The hydrolysis and degradation of SiO2 and TiO2 based resins is accelerated with high pH products as well as at low pH cleaners. By removing the oxygen group and using SiC linkages as the polymer backbone, Opti-Coat’s coatings are unaffected by low or high pH levels (acids and alkalines) and resistant to UV breakdown.

During the development of Opti-Coat in 2004, it was developed and tested a number of different resins for longevity, hardness, chemical resistance, UV resistance, scratch resistance and other desirable features such as gloss levels. These resins included SiC ceramic based resins as well as SiO2, TiO2, Silane, Siloxane, Fluoro, and a few other polymer resins.

Across the board, the SiC based resins we developed outperformed all others for these criteria. The resins that were based on SiO2 and TiO2 were initially comparable in hardness, however, they were hydrolysed and diminished over time. While the hydrolysis of SiO2 and TiO2 based resins was slow in neutral or low pH exposure and took months to become apparent, it was quite rapid at pH above 10 due to catalytic cleavage of Si-O or Ti-O bonds with hydroxyl group at higher pH. SiC linkage on the other hand was completely unaffected by acids (low pH) or caustics (high pH) due to the lack of oxygen group.

This difference in performance means one layer of SiC based resin would last longer than multiple layers of SiO2 or TiO2 resins since SiC resin does not diminish over time. Furthermore, since the SiC bond is harder and more inert, it does not allow chemicals to penetrate and damage the substrate it is applied to.

For these reasons Opti-Coat chose to develop the coatings using SiC as the polymer backbone. This has resulted in the Opti-Coat line of ceramic coatings providing the best protective properties to automotive finishes since their release in 2008.”
