OptiSeal is a wipe on and walk away product. It came out a few years ago, and other manufactures are starting to do similarly. Adam's has a quick sealant now that is relatively similar. Optiseal will last a few months, like a normal sealant. However, one 8oz bottle gets you 40 applications. I apply it a few times a year to parts of my vehicle as it takes about 5 minutes to seal an entire vehicle. I use it on my glass, wheels [before opticoat], plastics, etc.

Optiseal - Spray Sealant
Opticoat - Permanent coating that was tested 5+ years ago and has yet to fail on test vehicles. It is labeled semi-permanent as it can be polished off, but otherwise you can apply it once and never wax your car again. Once you apply it once though, it's not coming off without polishing.

I don't know really anything about it though just a few seconds of reading so my knowledge is weak lol.
