Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 Permanent Paint Coating <font color=red>FREE BONUS</font>

For a limited time, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 includes a free 16 x 16 inch Cobra Gold Plush Microfiber Towel!

The professional choice for PERMANENT paint protection.

You read it right. Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is a permanent coating that protects automotive paint over its lifetime! Unlike a wax or sealant, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 will not wash or wear off. It acts as a second layer of clear coat which provides increased protection against the elements. Formerly only available to professionals, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is now available to the public in a more user-friendly formula.

Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is a clear resin coating, much like the clear coat that already exists on your vehicle. And just like your factory clear coat, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is meant to be permanent! Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 can be applied to all exterior surfaces. It is not recommended for glass since improper application can affect visibility. For other exterior surfaces, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is a highly effective, transparent protective coating.

Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 can be applied to:

  • painted surfacesIt only takes drops of Optimum Opti-Coat.
  • headlights
  • wheels
  • plastic trim
  • bumpers
  • aluminum & chrome surfaces

Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is an additional barrier between the elements and your vehicle's paint. The paint will retain its color and contaminants will be blocked out to keep the paint smooth and clean. Unlike waxes and paint sealants that require frequent reapplication, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 provides constant, unyielding protection for the life of your vehicle's finish!

Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 was modified slightly from the original professional formula. (The pro version is still available under the Opti-Guard name.) Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 cures more slowly, which gives you more time to apply the coating correctly.

Because Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is permanent, the paint finish has to be properly prepared before applying it. Any blemishes or contamination on the paint will be permanently locked in so remove them first! On a properly prepared paint finish, Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 will look clear, smooth, and clean.

Note: Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 is not to be confused with other waxes, sealants or nano-coatings, this is different. Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 uses a resin technology that forms a permanent bond to paint and cures, just like an extra layer of clear coat.

Once Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 cures, washing is the only maintenance needed to keep your vehicle looking fantastic. The coating can be clayed but it should not be necessary since Opti-Coat 2.0 releases contaminants easily. Use detail sprays as desired to intensify the gloss. You can also use Optimum Poli-Seal by hand or with dual action polisher with a foam finishing pad to clean the paint over time.

Say goodbye to waxing! Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 provides permanent paint protection to keep your vehicle looking its best indefinitely!

Dispense a few drops onto a clean applicator pad. Use isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the car before applying Opti-Coat.
Wipe on Opti-Coat in thin, even strokes. Before Opt-Coat dries, use a clean, lint-free microfiber towel to buff off the residue.


  1. Polish paint to remove any defects.
  2. Clean surface with 15% IPA solution to remove all polishing oils, waxes, and silicones. (NOTE: You can skip the IPA step if your polish of choice is Detailer's Coating Prep Polish)
  3. Prime the applicator by making an X pattern across the pad. Only a few drops will be needed for each subsequent panel.  
  4. Wipe Opti-Coat onto a single panel at a time in a thin layer using two directions, front to back, and then side to side.  
  5. Within 5 minutes, inspect the panel with adequate lighting looking for any thick areas that have not flashed away to clear.
  6. Use foam applicator or paint safe microfiber to even out any areas where you see streaks. This step is key, as any spots not leveled will have to be polished if allowed to cure. Panels will feel a bit tacky and will be self-leveling during cure time, so avoid any unnecessary touching, wiping, or contact to produce the best results.
  7. Repeat steps 1-6 for each panel where application is desired. Not recommended for glass. 


Due to the unique formulation of this product, we ask that you acknowledge that you have read and understand the application and purpose of Optimum Opti-Coat 2.0 before purchasing it.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

It was, for me, very easy to use
May 4, 2014
My car has 1200 miles on it so it is pretty new. I wanted something to protect the finish as my parking space is under an electrical wire that appears to be the local avian hangout. Constant bombing runs by the evil buggers left my last car (black) with paint damage. The reason my car has 1200 miles is I have spent that time on the intertubes going over about a bazillion reviews at a metric boatload of detailer sites. I watched videos, read reviews and searched for negative reviews. There are several products out there, and one looking impressive was available only in Russia and Singapore. <sigh> So after reading the reviews I went with the Opti Coat 2.0. In all my searching I could only find one failure review and it was after a period of time. ONE - out of billions and billions. Based on my research (which also included literally hours of videos) I made the fateful decision. I was a bit intimidated by a lot of the warnings to be sure to apply the product properly and in a certain method. I went the route that seemed to most popular with pro detail folks; Iron X, Optimum Eraser (I have used clay before and jumped at the chance to try something new), DP Polish with a cheap DA polisher with a T-shirt-type bonnet, ONR for clean up, and then the Opti Coat. A lot of information about applying the Opti Coat referred over and over to how little product one should use. I was conscious of the admonition as I applied the product. I had done two quarter panels, the rear bumper, and deck lid and I hadn't used but 10 or 15 percent of the product. At that point I decided I was being to literal in my understanding of the directions. I proceeded to complete the painted areas of my car and then went back to do another coat in the rear and for good measure another coat on the hood in hopes it would provide better protection from the bird bombs. I need to say the car has a large backlight and a glass roof as well, so the painted areas were less than generally found so I was feeling I could afford to err on the side of greater, as opposed to lesser, amounts of product. I applied as directed in that I did a small-ish area and moved on to the next. I would let the product flash and followed around with a microfiber cloth about three sections behind the application section. I then polished and used ONR on the glass roof and backlight and did them on the next weekend after applying the product on the painted areas. My thinking was I wanted a mega-serious coating on the wheels thinking the brake dust would be the most difficult cleaning task on the car. To that end I wanted to do the wheels last so I could use as much product in as many coats as I wanted. Being on the wheels, if I did a crappy job, it would not be real noticeable. To wrap up (it feels like I have written War and Peace for this review) I have a couple of points: Application went smoothly and was not difficult I had no high areas left after wiping with a microfiber The finish looks absolutely magnificent and I am well pleased I would recommend this to anybody Unfortunately I cannot comment on the longevity of the finish at this time, but I have high hopes Anyone with moderate DIY knowledge can do this, but it is worth what a professional charges. The reason I did it myself is I contacted the local-ist detailer, who had a good rep, and they were too busy to get back to me with any response; so I copped an attitude and did it myself. Believe me, my back and several lost weekends are telling me it is worth paying a pro. One last thing - I used this on my kitchen range. The range is black and has no drip-pans or reflectors one could replace, so spillovers bake onto the surface and are nearly impossible to clean. I'd be interested if anybody else has found an unusual use for this product. I hope I have discovered a miracle cure for the damn range.
Looks great Reasonably easy to apply
Pricey; but not if it lasts

Not for Me
November 14, 2013
I did not like the product at all. I don't like the way it looks compared to wax and it is not a bullet proof as the advertising makes it out to be. Also, if you need to repair damage to it in the future, it will require buffing it off the car, which is much harder than repairing wax.

Opti-Coat 2.0
November 7, 2013
Excellent product. I am very OCD about my cars. Prepped my Wife's new Q5, put a coat on and have not washed the car since. Been 3 weeks now and after numerous storms the car still appears to be very clean and have a brilliant shine. Used it on my RS5 as well and the shine is fantastic. Use it on the wheels for sure, you will love being able to just rinse the wheels clean and not have to use all the little brushes to get the entire wheel clean and perfect. Highly recommend this product. Much easier to apply than you think. Just take your time and have a great light to shine and make sure it is all even,

I'm Impressed

A week after applying opti-coat 2.0 to my VW Golf I drove over a newly surfaced road and had tar flick up onto the lower sides and doors. But it was no problem because the tar just washed off like the surface was teflon coated. Incredible. And the water beading is amazing. I did two coats just to be sure I got a perfect coating. Great product. Highly recommend. Just a tip - when applying in warmer climates the excess should be knocked down sooner rather than later, and prepare your surface very well before applying because Opticoat does not cover up scratches or swirls - it just protects incredibly well.

Opti-Coat 2.0 Review
December 6, 2012
I decided to use this product on my wife's silver V W Toureg. The car was clayed and then polished using optimum hyper polish ( amazing product ). Once polished I gave the Toureg an alcohol wipe down and then applied Opti-Coat 2.0. The coating was easy to put on and the result were astonishing. The only down side to the product is that I went through the entire product just on her vehicle. In my opinion, the amount of product given is just enough to do one mid-sized SUV.

As a Kansas City auto detailing company we are always having to find a balance between looks and durability. Opti-Coat is a great product and we use it for wheels all of the time. Shine is pretty good, durability is good but definitely not permanent. There are a few other products we suggest for higher-quality gloss that are in the same league but opti-coat is great for the weekend warrior all the way up to the professional detailer.

This stuff is a game changer. I can't personally comment on how long it will last, but other reports so far are impressive. You can also do about 2-3 cars with the 20cc vial.

Don't fret

So I worry about putting this stuff on a 2012 CRX for weeks. Could not be easier! The prep took two days but the results were fantastic. It reqiures due care but cetainly not to be feared (like I did). I hope it lives up to the write ups as far as durability and scratch resistance, then it will be perfect.

One of a kind

There isn't another product like this on the market. Incredible durability! Only thing is there is a learning curve to proper application. Do some research on the forum and practice session before you go full bore.

After reading some reviews on Opti-coat I decided to order some to try. To get a little experiance I tried it on my wheels first. I have to say I was very impressed by how easy it was to apply. When I washed the wheels after a couple weeks it was easy and the break dust and dirt rinsed right off. THe wheels look great and I'm getting ready to use it on my whole car now.

Opti- Coat 2.0
November 13, 2011
This product is amazingly easy to use. Takes just minutes to apply. I suggest have a bright led flashlight or other bright light to be able to check the completed panels. The apply pad tells you when you need to reload the pad. I used Griots Paint prep before applying the Opti-Coat 2.0, quick and easy, flawless results!

I read a lot about this product before purchasing it, and I was worried about applying it. It went on a lot easier than I was worried about (you do need to be careful). It almost made the clear bra shine like clear-coated paint. Water sheets off it wonderfully also.

This stuff is just simply amazing. Prep the paint to perfection and enjoy excellent beading/sheeting action. No need to ever wax again. Bird bombs, tar and general grime do not adhere to this product like a conventional wax so washes are simple, fun and rewarding!

great product

Product goes on easily and finishes crystal clear. INCREDIBLE water sheeting without waxing the car. I will be recommending this to my customers with new cars. The placement on the car couldnt be easier.
