Permanent headlight coating protects against UV-induced yellowing and fading
Optimum Opti-Lens Headlight Coating is a resin-based coating designed to protect headlights against yellowing, fading and discoloration for the life of the vehicle. Optimum Opti-Lens Headlight Coating forms a covalent bond with the headlight and cross-links to blanket the lens with a durable, protective film. Headlights coated with Optimum Opti-Lens Headlight Coating will retain perfect clarity in any environment – forever!
Nearly all vehicles manufactured since the late 1980s feature polycarbonate headlight lenses. This material is lightweight, impact resistant and far safer than the glass lenses of yesteryear, making it the ideal choice for modern headlight construction. There is one drawback to this material: UV induced fading and discoloration. Dull, yellowed headlights take away from vehicles that have otherwise been polished to perfection using Optimum’s line of polishing compounds.
If you've ever walked down a row of parked cars at the mall or shopping center, you’ll notice a trend – yellow, dull, cloudy, oxidized headlight lenses on nearly every vehicle that’s not brand new. Intense UV rays from the sun paired with rain, pollution, road salt and bugs all eat away at the factory-applied clear coat on your headlight lenses. Optimum Polymer Technologies developed Opti-Lens Headlight Coating as a solution against yellowed, discolored headlights.
Optimum Opti-Lens Headlight Coating is a highly modified version of Optimum’s first coating – Opti-Coat (once known as Opti-Guard). Polycarbonate headlight lenses require far more UV protection than paint does so Dr. David Ghodoussi – CEO and chemist behind Optimum Polymer Technologies – formulated Opti-Lens Headlight Coating with the highest amount of UV inhibitors available in a coating.
The result is a headlight-specific coating that ensures your vehicle’s headlights retain optimum clarity throughout the lifespan of the vehicle.
Optimum Opti-Lens Headlight Coating is designed to be applied to headlights that are free of any oxidation or yellowing. If necessary, polish the headlights to restore optical clarity and then wipe them down with a 15% solution of isopropyl alcohol. Apply an ultra thin coat of Opti-Lens and allow to cure for 3-5 minutes. Remove any excess with a clean, dry microfiber towel.
