BMW M3 Paint Enhancement Detail + Opti-Coat Pro Ceramic Coating

Thu 21st Apr 2016

Here we have the stunning Fire Orange BMW M3 after being treated to our Paint Enhancement Detail. The paintwork has been fully protected with Opti-Coat Pro and Opti-Coat Pro Plus ceramic coatings.

Even though the vehicle is only a few months old it had picked up some light swirling and fine scratches. 

As with every detail it was fully washed and completely decontaminated using fallout remover and a clay bar. This removes any embedded contaminants from the surface of the paintwork, alloy wheels and glass. A perfectly smooth finish is left behind allowing any form of protection applied to bond correctly to the lacquer. The paintwork then received two stages of machine polishing using a range of Koch Chemie polishes. This procedure enhanced the gloss significantly and removed the light surface swirl marks and fine scratches. As a result, the quality of the finish was transformed considerably!

Opti-Coat Pro and Opti-Coat Pro Plus ceramic coatings were then applied to the paintwork.

Opti-Coat Pro is a PERMANENT hard wearing, ceramic clear coat for superior resistance to scratching (9H), and surface protection from chemical etching due to environmental impacts. The Opti-Coat pre-polymer cross links, and forms a continuous protective film on the painted surface it is applied to, similar to a single component isocyanate that forms a clear coat finish. Opti-Coat has better chemical resistance, scratch and mar resistance, and release properties than any automotive paint coating in use. It provides permanent protection for all modern factory paints.

Opti-Coat Pro Plus now delivers even more gloss and slickness than ever before, while still maintaining the same chemical structure that has made it renowned as the ultimate protective paint coating. The advanced formulation not only delivers amazing gloss and protection, it also provides increased anti water spotting and hydrophobic properties to maintain the perfect finish in the long term. Opti-Coat Pro Plus is an enhanced 2 step version of Opti-Coat Pro. The first step, Opti-Coat Pro, is a ceramic clear coating with superior resistance to scratching, chemical etching, fading due to UV and provides outstanding release properties. Opti-Coat Pro Plus adds great gloss and slickness for a fantastic shine and long term paint protection with a 7 year warranty.

The alloy wheels were protected with Gtechniq C5 Wheel Armour and the glass with Gtechniq G5 Water Repellent Coating.
