How long does the Optimum Opti-Coat lasts? Does it really work?
- Optimum Opti-Coat is supposed to form a PERMANENT
protective layer on top of your existing paint and is designed to be harder, more scratch resistant and has better water beading characteristics than the original paint.
- Optimum Opti-Coat is supposed to last and protect for as long as the coating is taken care of properly.
- Another advantage of getting your car coated is that should there be any issue with with scratches or watermarks which requires polishing or compounding, only the Optimum Opti-Coat will be affected as the original paint below the Optimum Opti-Coat will not be touched.
Does it really work? How long does it last?
The only way to tell is to try it out...
The surface of this test vehicle suffered from clearcoat failure. IF the Optimum Opti-Coat really works and forms an additional permanent protective layer on top of the paint, the coated area should remain the same and the paint should not oxidize and revert back to the original condition over time.
Early-May 2010: A section of the test area was taped off and corrected before the Optimum Opti-Coat was applied.
After correction. Nice and shiny with the gloss restored.
Time to try out the coating...
The surface really looks great!!!
Mid-May 2010: Great water beading!!!
June 2010: Still the same reflection...
: Water sheeting ONE YEAR LATER!!!
August 2011: After 15 MONTHS!!!

They say a picture tells a thousand words..... at least this saves me from typing another 738 words.
