    Optimum Opti-Coat on Mercedes Benz AMG E-Class

    The owner of this AMG Mercedes had contacted me some time ago as he wanted to ensure that his newly acquired pride and joy was properly protected from the harsh environmental conditions with a protective layer of Optimum Opti-Coat.

    Optimum Opti-Coat forms a PERMANENT protective layer on the surface of the paint which helps protect the original paint from environmental damage. The Optimium Opti-Coat adds 2-3 microns to the thickness of the paint and is harder and more scratch resistant than the original factory paint. Optimum Opti-Coat also has superior hydrophobic properties which helps to ensure that dirt or other contaminants are less likely to bond with the paint and to make cleaning and maintaining the paint easier. Should there be any need to remove any stains which have bonded to the paint such as watermarks, the Optimum Opti-Coat can be polished while leaving the original factory paint untouched.

    A common misconception with regards to coating is that the coat itself is the most important part of the process. The coating does matter but it is the surface preparation that makes all of the difference to the appearance of the paint and the coating is added as the last step to protect the paint. Any paint defects that are not corrected will be sealed in by the coating and hence it is critical to ensure the paint is properly corrected before coating.

    This Mercedes Benz AMG E-Class took well over 15 hours and two-days to carry out the paint correction and Opti-Coating of the exterior and glass surfaces.

    Re: Optimum Opti-Coat on Mercedes Benz AMG E-Class

    After completing the full detail and Opti-Coating of the exterior, it was time to move on to the interior.









    After completing the Optimum Opti-Coating very, very, early in the morning... I continued the next day or should I say later that same morning with a light interior cleaning with Optimum Opti-Clean and protected the leather with Optimum Protectant Plus.

    Optimum Opti-Clean is the latest product from Optimum Polymer Technologies and is a revolutionary waterless wash which is suitable for cleaning exterior AND interior surfaces.






    The glass and wheels were then coated with Optimum Opti-Coat.

    Awesome job!

    OC looks great on White. You may have just convinced me to order and wait for OC to arrive before improving upon the dealer's prep work with our new alpine white 528i.

    Will OC on glass hold up to wiper action and shed water like AquaPel?

    What polisher and pads did you use with the Opt polishes?

    Yeah... very satisfying how it turned out. It looked almost wet.

    Used less than 10cc's for this car. It comes in a 40cc syringe so you should be able to coat at least 4 to 6 cars.

    OC on glass works great! No issues with sticky wipers. Water beading is probably not as strong as dedicated class coatings but it does last a very long time so I suppose it makes up for it. Can't compare with AquaPel as never tried that product.

    My buddy fish did a glass coating test which you can check out here:

    That white looks awesome! The surface looks like a room temperature stick of butter; just smooth, wet, and glossy! Nice job!
