It’s a battle of heavyweights in the paint protection film industry: Opti-Coat Pro Plus squaring off against Ceramic Pro for the title of Undisputed Best Automotive Paint Sealant.

Let’s skip to the end: Opti-Coat Pro Plus wins in a knockout.

The auto body and auto paint professionals at Automotive Quality Solutions all agree: As a paint protectant and exterior sealant, Opti-Coat Pro Plus (full name Optimum Pro Coatings) is better than any of its competitors, including Ceramic Pro.

The reason has to do with chemistry: While many paint protection films just lie on top of your car’s paint job and provide a physical barrier to dirt, harsh chemicals, the sun and natures acids like bird droppings, sap, wet leaves, etc for as long as it lasts – which is usually not much more than a year or two. Opti-Coat Pro Plus, on the other hand, forms a chemical bond with the paint that renders it completely protected for the life of the car. 

It Never Needs to be Reapplied!

  • We think that’s a much better deal. That’s why we at AQS have worked to become one of the very few authorized installers of the Opti-Coat Pro Plus ceramic coatings and the entire Optimum line of products in Northern Virginia and the Washington DC area.

Our owner Daryl gave us a brief technical rundown about what makes Opti-Coat Pro Plus a true paint coating providing total, permanent protection, while Ceramic Pro and similar products act merely as temporary sealants.

“Ceramic Pro has small particles of ceramic in a solution, like gum-drops in Jello and those particles have space in between them. Opti-Coat is nothing but ceramic, and as it cures the surface is protected with a permanent seamless ceramic coating with no gaps at all.”

Opti-Coat Pro Plus provides superior scratch resistance and permanent protection for painted surfaces; the Optimum full product line also includes protective products for interiors (cloth/leather), glass, hard plastic, chrome and aluminum trim, and wheels.
