Default Opti-Coat

Had my 2014 Durango sealed with Opti-Coat about a month back. Holding up pretty nicely with the rain and pollen we have had in the DC area.

Opti-coat is more than a "really amazing wax."


Opti-Coat is a hard wearing, aftermarket, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H) and chemical etching from environmental impacts. It provides permanent protection for all factory paints, and can also be applied to exterior glass, metal and hard plastic surfaces.

Opti-Coat is not a wax or sealant like other products on the market. It is a ceramic clear coating very similar to factory type clear coats. A layer of Opti-Coat measures approx. 2 microns in thickness, or about 100 times thicker than your typical wax or sealant. Unlike paint protection sealants such as PTFE, Nano Sealants, GlassPlexin that degrade over time and are easily removed through washing with water or chemicals, Opti-Coat does not degrade and cannot be removed by chemicals such as heavy duty truck wash or even caustic degreasers. It is totally resistant to these chemicals and produces a permanent film that is chemically bonded with the factory paint layers. Opti-Coat is effectively the vehicles new outer clear coat. It is far more resistant to chemical etching than factory clear coats and far more resistant than competing paint protection sealants.

So after hitting a Deer a few months back I had to get the DD re-done. I chose to go with CQuartz Finest this time around! I have CQuartz on my 2012 Jaguar XFR and Opti-Coat doesn't even come close!

I used C.Quartz just before winter and it was worth the money.
