As far as the clear coat comments, I believe it's the best way to describe it vs. a wax or sealant to differentiate it to the average shmuck (rightly or wrongly). It apparently (I'm no chemist) bonds more tightly. This (again apparently) results in a *virtually* permanent layer. Yes, the word "permanent" is loaded, but the longest test I've seen has been 3 years - coupled with the fact that the only way to remove it is to compound it off.
Yep. I still think the only way to describe it is as a sealant.

I'm not saying OptiCoat is a bad product at all, just confused about why multi-layers are applied.
