After spending thousands of dollars on a new vehicle, you expect your car to look pristine for at least it’s first few years on the road. However, car paintwork and clear coats can deteriorate faster than you might imagine. Thankfully, with an Opti-Coat ceramic coating, this doesn’t have to be the case for many years ahead.

What is a Ceramic Coating?

As new cars roll off production lines, manufacturers apply clear coats to add depth, shine, and protect paintwork from UV radiation and pollution.

Sadly, over buffing and polishing by some express dealership detailers can compromise manufacturer applied clear coats. As a result, paintwork on cars just a few years old can start to dull and look visually lackluster. Ceramic coatings address this problem. Specifically, by creating an extra, more robust layer of paint protection.

  • Ceramic coatings like Opti-Coat, are carefully applied by hand to car bodywork
  • As a transparent liquid polymer, Opti-Coat bonds directly to factory applied paintwork
  • Opti-Coat ceramic coating lasts for the lifetime of a vehicle, adding impermeable paint protection and lasting shine

Why Opti-Coat?

Why Opti-Coat outperforms other ceramic coatings is simple. Silicon Carbide used in Opti-Coat bonds directly to paint surfaces. This gives cured coatings a strength score of 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. (Diamond, the world’s hardest known material measures 10).

To date, Opti-Coat ceramic coatings have been on the market for 13-years. During this time, no other coating has been able to demonstrate comparable durability or longevity.

Opti Coat Ceramic Coating is the permanent protection against chemical stains, UV and lite scratches. While other silicone dioxide-based coatings require many layers to be applied on top of car’s paintwork to create protective barrier which works as long as it stays there. Opti-Coat Pro coatings made of newer silicone carbide-based polymer that forms a chemical bond with the paint which lasts as long as original clear coat. To date, Opti-Coat ceramic coatings have been on the market for 13 years it is guaranteed to last for many years with the proper maintenance.

Opti-Coat Ceramic Coating Benefits

Opti-Coat ceramic coating forms a permanent, nano-ceramic, flexible glass shield, which improves existing car clear coat. However, unlike a regular car clear coat, Opti-Coat ceramic coating is guaranteed to last the lifetime of a vehicle with the proper maintenance.

With Opti-Coat, no reapplications are necessary. Instead, once cured, coatings provide a lifetime of robust paint protection from environmental pollution, abrasions, UV damage, and oxidation.

  • Opti-Coat provide a level of bodywork protection which is so far unmatched in the automotive industry
  • Coatings preserve the gloss and shine of paint, even when vehicles are exposed to acid rain and industrial pollutants
  • Nano-ceramic technology repels stains and water, making cars easy to wipe clean, many years after application

New Ceramic Glass Coating Applications

At GleamWorks, we are fully accredited Opti-Coat installers. We can apply new ceramic glass coatings to any Vancouver vehicle.

Opti-Coat Application & Curing

Before applying Opti-Coat directly, GleamWorks team applies a special primer polish. This prepares existing car clear coat for optimal bonding with Opti-Coat. Following treatment with Paint Preparation solution by Optimum Polymer Technologies instead to alcohol, we then apply Opti-Coat ceramic glass coating as a liquid, making sure to coat all paintwork evenly.

Once complete, we allow Opti-Coat to cure. However, full curing won’t be complete for 30 days after installation.

  • Ceramic glass coatings are water resistant and resistant to pH neutral liquids within 2 hours
  • 7-days after installation, bodywork will benefit from full chemical resistance
  • Coatings usually fully cure after 30 days

Because Opti-Coat requires one-time installation, ceramic coatings by GleamWorks represent the best value in Vancouver. Experience the benefits of clean, shine, constant car care, by scheduling your Opti-Coat installation today.
