What is Glass Coating ?
1. Wax: A protective coating usually made from natural carnauba wax and polymers that provides a deep, reflective shine. Usually lasts 6-8 weeks.
2. Sealant: A completely synthetic blend of polymers that provides long-lasting paint protection and shine. Usually lasts 5-6 months.
3. Glass Coating: Liquid glass ( Silica Glass – Siloxane – SiO2 ) is a clear liquid which hardens on contact with the air, this solid membrane provides a durable high gloss protection. Usually lasting up to 3 years, in some cases up to 5 years. Expecting 10 years is not realistic and just because a product can last for a million years doesn’t mean that it will look good.
Forget about wax and regular paint sealants!
Our glass coating range
OP888 is a hard coating and lasts up to 3 years that can be used for mobile detailers or DIY with some cautions. OP888 creates the tightest plump water beads that has a shine that compares to all the best waxes in the world. OP888 is also suited and recommended for factory matte finishes. For the best results it is best applied by a trained experienced detailer that offers on going support like our OPTIX partners. Why a trained professional? because smears and “dark patching” common in all SiO2 applications can occur. For OP888 to work above and beyond all expectations trained professionals apply 3 coats. Each coat is applied then allowed to flash off and set to a solid state which is very important. Once a solid state we perform a check and rectify any areas of “dark patching” which is coating that is not level and not blended properly. Once we are certain that the first coat is correct we start the process all over again for the 2nd and 3rd coats. In between each coat we will apply the multiple coats to your wheels if you have opted for it in the same way. For best results wheels should be removed and treated off the vehicle. Once the body and wheels are done we now start coating a single layer into your door shuts and give the vehicle a final exterior detail.
OPTIX OP1 is our most popular & flagship coating. OP1 is a softer coating than OP888 and is flexible when compared to OP888. OP1 increases the colour saturation and contrast of what ever colour OP1 is applied to. OP1 has a wetter gloss than OP888 and lasts up to 5 years. OP1 is also better suited to PPF because of its flexible nature. Application of OP1 should only be installed in house and best left over night with final checks the next day. OP1 is best cured in house using infrared lamps. OP1 comes with a one year warranty held by the OPTIX partner that is installing the product.
OP-D is not yet released for more information please contact us.
Aftercare for our coatings?
Yes OPTIX has a range of aftercare products that we make, bottle and label in our workshop in Canning Vale Western Australia and therefore you are supporting Australian made products. Example Des buys the bottles from a locally owned business in Perth, the stickers and graphic design is all sourced locally, this means you are supporting a few family businesses in Australia.
The main aftercare product you will need is OPTIX FINAL BOOST and or OPTIX NANO spray sealant.
OPTIX FINAL BOOST offers a truly deep shine & instant protection after washing. FINAL BOOST adds a very thin layer of hydrophobic water proofing type protectant that is water based. FINAL BOOST also adds more self cleaning effect to the existing coating.
