Titanium Paint Coating
This is the finest automotive titanium coating on the planet in regards to car paint. CS-II Titanium Coating is the next generation of protective coating for automotive surfaces. The extremely long-lasting crystal coat acts as a protective armor against acid rain, bird droppings, road film, tar and harmful UV rays. It maintains the luster and color of the paint on your car with the best grade of hardness (9h) while its adhesive strength will minimize the appearance of light scratches. Thus, the paint is protected and given a longer life cycle. Another key benefit of titanium coating is that it offers a deep rich gloss and finish. Ultimately, this makes the future washing of your vehicle faster and easier!
CS-II Ceramic Coating is a semi-permanent coating that provides long-term shine and protection. By inter-locking part of its molecular structure with the surface molecules of your paintwork, the result is a coating that cannot be washed off like polymer based waxes. This coating greatly reduces the penetration of heat, helping protect the finish of the vehicle. Once treated, your vehicle will repel water and contaminants like a lotus-leaf and will maintain a clear, reflective, showroom like shine. CS-II Ceramic Coating cannot be removed by water, alkaline or other detergents, or by pressure washers.
Never wax your car again!
How many times have you heard that statement? Promises of protection from the elements and scratching that lasts as long as you own your car. Truth is, waxes wear and wash off becoming less and eventually non effective over time. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating actually makes it possible to never wax your car again. How? Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating is not a wax, in fact it provides 100 times the protection of wax in thickness alone. Too good to be true? We’ll show you why Opti-Coat is for you.
Opti-Coat is not a wax, then what is it?
Opti-Coat is a ceramic clear coat that is hard wearing. This provides greater surface protection from chemical etching that is caused by environmental factors, as well as vastly improved resistance to scratching. Opti-Coat creates a constant shielding barrier by cross linking directly to the paint it is applied to. Compared to any automotive paint protection coating available today, Opti-Coat has superior release properties, scratch and mar defense as well as chemical resistance. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating provides a perpetual defensive barrier available for all contemporary factory paints.
Why is Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating different from anything else on the market?
Tests performed on other paint protecting products show a measurement of less than .02 microns of wax coating. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating has measured up to 2 microns of thickness. That is 100 times as thick as other paint protection products with only a single layer. This thick coating allows Opti-Coat to efficiently defend against damage that affects current factory paint finishes. The factory paint is preserved by the harder ceramic coating, decreasing minor scratches and swirl marks as well. Factory clear coating is susceptible to damage caused by environmental factors such as bird droppings or lime. The acidic properties of these environmental factors break down the factory clear coat leaving your vehicle defenseless. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating is impervious to these environmental factors, preventing erosion and etching, giving you a clean, shiny, undamaged coating. Opti-Coat is not a sealant or wax for paint; they wash off and degrade over time. Opti-Coat creates a permanent bond with the factory coating, perpetually defending the surface without washing off or dissolving.
Do I need Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating?
Yes! Your vehicle is an investment. After purchasing a new car or having your car detailed is the optimal time to have Opti-Coat applied, maximizing the protection of your investment. You insure your home and your vehicle, take steps to protect your car’s expensive finish. Opti-Coat Pro ceramic coating will protect the factory coating of your car.
During the last two months we’ve been offering the New Optimum Gloss-Coat paint coating process. We can report that everyone loves it.
Gloss -Coat is similar to the Opti-Coat Pro we already offer. Yet it doesn’t have the 5 year warranty that the Opti-Coat Pro has. The durability is only good for up to two years. Gloss coat is slick to the touch, hydrophobic and can be applied on top of Opti-Coat Pro. Adding Opti-Coat Pro makes your cars paint look even glossier and feels super soft.
The Gloss-Coat application process is the same as Opti-Coat Pro. We start by thoroughly washing the vehicle. Then we decontaminate the paint using Optimum FereX and detailers clay. This ensures that the paint is contaminate free. We then dry the surface with compressed air. Primer polish (Optimum Prime) is then used to gently polish the paint. This brings out thew shine and readys the paint for the Gloss-Coat. Gloss-Coat is then applied one panel at a time until the vehicle is done.
Gloss-Coat is Optimum Polymer Technologies answer to all the copy cat paint coating that have popped up the past few years. Most offer no warranty and some offer only 2 years vs the 5 year Opti-Coat Pro comes with. Most of these new coatings cost double or triple the price and are imported from a foreign country. Opt-Coat Pro and Gloss-Coat are made here in America.
If having a car that stays cleaner longer, keeps it shine longer, is easier to clean and overall just looks better. Consider having us professionally apply one of Optimum Polymer Technologies premium paint coatings. It’s the #1 paint coating in America and the only one will offer you at Concours Auto Salon.

A lot of you have been treating your selfs to new vehicles lately. We have hade several through the shop in the last month with customers asking for Opti-Coat Pro by name. It certainly is becoming quite popular these days. With all the benefits that Opti-Coat Pro adds to your cars finish its hard to not want it applied.
We thought we would share some of the recent cars that have come through the shop to have Opti-Coat Pro applied.
This is a new Jeep Cherokee SRT 8 The charcoal metallic finish really sparkled with the Opti-Coat Pro applied to the finish.
This black beauty Honda Accord was in on a recent Saturday having Opti-Coat Pro applied to it’s black metallic finish.

This super sweet Audi R8 spider was protected with Opti-Coat Pro after it’s paint was corrected.
This was really just the tip of the Iceberg. So many of you have been wanting your carts protected with Opti-Coat Pro it’s been hard to keep up with let alone document all the cars coming through the shop. We really look forward to the new year and all the customers who want to protect their cars.
The environment can be very damaging to your car’s painted surfaces. Bugs, Birds, tree sap and pollution can age you vehicles finish faster then you would like. Lets face it new Car’s are not coming down in prices. Drivers are keeping their cars for longer periods of time. Proper washing and a good coating of protective sealant are key to a newer looking with a shine that will last for years.
Concours Auto Salon’s premium paint correction and restoration process can bring back that new car shine. It’s not a simple process and takes hours if not days depending on the amount of imperfections to be corrected.
It starts with a thorough hand wash with a decontamination process. The technician will then evaluate the cars finish. Test spots are polished to determine the best machines, pads and products to use for the restoration.
The polishing/correction process is removing the scratched dead layer of clear coat.
A key step in the correction process is to have Optimum Opti-Coat applied to the paints finish. Opti-Coat permanently bonds with your painted surfaces. It has the same UV protection properties as your factory clear coat. Within 12 hours it is resistant to liquids such as water and can be driven as normal by the client. Opti-Coat will then continue to harden over the next 30 days as it is exposed to heat. It’s hard wearing and resists scratching better then your factory clear coat.
The results from this combination are outstanding. Every customer is completely blown away with the results.

In our hight tech world we all are looking for some type of proof of conformation that the products and services we spend our money on are working as advertised. Company’s spend thousands of dollars testing products in a lab. However a lab is really a controlled environment. Real world testing and results can really make or break a product. Company’s shout at the top of their lungs in print and on the television trying to convince consumers that their product is the best. It all seems like noise at times. Every so often a products comes along that claims to do this and that. When you realize that the product you paid for actually does what it’s supposed to do it a nice surprise.
Recently Opti-Coat pro (a product we helped develop and apply to car’s every day in our shop) was put to the test. It was a real world test. Not a scheduled one. The test vehicle is a highly polished, black Mini Cooper. It’s owner is Richard Lin who also own’s Show Car Detailing in southern California. They are an authorized Opti-Coat Pro installer. Richard’s black Mini was in the parking lot of his shop looking really nice. Nice enough that a feathered flying rat with a poor diet decided to take dive bomb target practice on Richards. The bird scored a direct hit.
This is the point of impact.
Richard waited two days to physically remove the bomb from the front of his car.
This is the stain left behind.
Richard had planned on documenting the stains disappearance over several days. However it was a real world test. It rained one day and was scorching hot the other days. When Richard realized that he forgot about the stain he grabbed his camera, some water and soft microfiber towels to clean the area of his hood for inspection and pictures.
The stain was completely gone. Were not sure how quickly it was gone. This picture was taken 7 days after the bird bomb was left behind but it was gone!
Optimum Opti-Coat is a permanent coating that is applied to all the painted surfaces of your vehicle. When applied correctly it will protect your car’s finish from life’s environmental hazards like it did for Richard’s car.
If you purchased a new Vehicle you can have Opti-Coat applied to the paint and obtain a warranty that guarantees that damage like this wont happen to your car. If it does then Optimum will pay up to $2500.00 to have the damage repaired or painted.
Concours Auto Salon is an authorized installer for Opti-Coat Pro. We have applied the product to thousands of cars just like yours. Give us a call and check out the Opti-Coat website for more details about the warranty and to locate a shop near you if your not in the San Antonio area.
