As the leading paint protection manufacturer on the market, Optimum Polymer Technologies (OPT) has protected the most expensive and the newest cars to enter the market. Paint is the first impression and the last touch that a car receives. Manufacturers invest billions into making the shine and the look last as long as it can. Opti-Coat Pro Plus, manufactured by OPT, has been recently lauded as the primary protection of choice by Tesla owners around the world.

OPT was founded by Dr. David Ghodoussi in 2001 after several years of manufacturing automotive paint for DuPont. His expertise as a PHD Scientist specializing in automotive paint formulations and chemical interactions allowed him to invent the world’s first and most effective paint protection system to “freeze” the look of a new car.

“Tesla manufactures some of the most technologically advanced cars on the road. They also use some of the latest technologies in paint systems and other exterior and interior finishes. While I do believe that all new cars deserve a special coating to preserve the look, I wanted to make it clear that Tesla already does an amazing job resulting in beautiful, strong paint,” stated Dr. Ghodoussi. “I look forward to purchasing my first Tesla soon myself. I hope Tesla also appreciates that our coatings do actually preserve their vehicles and many owners share their Tesla results with us with pride.”

Opti-Coat is the most advanced ceramic coating available in the market anywhere in the world. It is scientifically engineered by the leading experts in the field. Always undergoing advancements, Opti-Coat is the go-to choice for high end car owners such as Lamborghini, McLaren, Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls-Royce, Aston Martin, Porsche, and Tesla.

“Opti-Coat Pro Plus was a must for the Lambo Aventador, Aston Martin, and Bentley GT’s that we were using for our show and for ourselves. I recently got a Tesla Model X and had our top researchers find the best protection. I was disappointed by others in the market that had failed to do what they advertise, so we took several months to research and try each out before selecting OPT as our show’s official paint protection application for all the top-line exotic vehicles and for every Tesla that we or our show will purchase. The OPT team came out and I’m honestly amazed at what it can do. I wouldn’t buy a new car now without scheduling the Pro Plus application to be done when it gets dropped off so I can keep it ‘frozen’ in time looking that amazing,” said Paul Rock, Film Producer and Association Brand Products CEO.

Opti-Coat will prevent damage from UV rays and all environmental contaminants. Opti-Coat Pro Plus is guaranteed and warrantied for 7 years and it can only be purchased through and applied by an approved OPT Authorized automotive application specialist who is also required to be proficient in paint correction and auto maintenance.

You guys really have me thinking about this. For me my least favorite part of any car I have owned is actually the windshield oddly enough. A lot of highway driving and a lot of small stone chips you don't notice when looking a the car until you drive into the sun directly (which I do on my commute to and from work each day).

As an aside, I use all of OPTs products on my car and absolutely love them!

I'm a recent fan of these products as well. I'm not sure what the difference is between the "Pro Plus" that must be done by an authorized installer or the stuff you can apply yourself. However the $1000+ price to have someone else do it vs the $75 price for the DIY version convinced me to apply it myself. I'm very happy with the results!

The trick to this stuff is making sure your car is absolutely clean and spotless. I’m going to get it applied professionally as well as get paint protection film applied to the hood and fascia right after the new year. I’m hoping to make a video of the process so everyone can see what’s involved

I'll be very interested in the critical path of events for this.

I have confirmed who will do my OptiCoat for me, but he doesn't do PPF.

For PPF, I have to go to a different (professional) facility and they have instructed me to not get the Opti-Coat done until after the PPF is applied. Chicken or the egg.........

the PPF will not 'stick' on the Opti-Coated surface. So if you are planning on doing both, you have to get the PPF done first.

FYI: OptiCoat Pro Plus was reformulated approx 3 months ago.

New benefits of OptiCoat Pro Plus are:

  • Higher gloss
  • Additional scratch resistance
  • Greater water and dirt repellency
  • More protective properties and durability
i've been an Authorized OptiCoat Pro installer for over 6 years. I have applied the new formula to a Model 3 in silver and more then a few MS/MXs. The improvement in gloss and slickness is apparent right away.

On my dad's MultiCoat White MS85 you can see the beading on the hood during washing.

I have ClearPlex on the lower 48" of our MX, coverage in one piece would be very difficult. But on the normal sized windshields of the MS and Model 3, clearplex can be applied in one piece. ClearPlex is like a PPF for your windshield. I too hate the nicks and microchips that a windshield gets. Installer is very important for ClearPlex. You will read some negative press about CLearPlex not being clear after the install. IMO/IME this is due to a poor install.
