    I was wondering if anyone has any experience putting Opti-Guard/Opti-Coat Pro over or under Avery Nano Fusion Film?

    I have a car coming in for some other work and it already has Nano Fusion Film installed but I may have a clear bra installer redo the film. The customer was asking about putting Opti-Guard down then having Nano Fusion installed then maybe Opti-Guarded again.

    I'm concerned that putting down Opti-Guard first would mess with the adhesion to the panel. I am pretty sure I have heard of people putting Opti Coat over other films but not the Avery Nano Film. I would hate to mess up newly installed film but I also am wondering if I am making a bigger deal out of this than it really is.

    if the film has any of the self-healing properties then don't, I would not put under as it will interfere with adhesion of film

    Someone I know has applied to self healing xpel with no issues. You can use opticoat under most films, its just a little harder to work with. Its sort of a waste to do it under though.

    I disagree with it being a waste under films. Although most film suppliers claim high UV protection and no yellowing, every one I've seen removed has a yellow tint which means UV breakdown. So, there is the potential for color fading under the film and I would OptiCoat the whole paint system uniformly. Also, while OptiCoat will prevent secure binding of environmental contaminants, that doesn't usually apply to adhesives.

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I'm going to talk with my customer and see what they would like to do. I guarantee I'll be taking photos of this one and sharing the results.
