Expert Q&A: What are the Differences Between Infinity and Coat2Protect?


I was wondering what is the difference between the Infinity Headlight Restoration Coating and the Coat2protect Headlight Coating? Also, what is the shelf life for Infinity?



  • No mixing is required with our one-part formula.
  • Easy to apply self-leveling formula.
  • Very forgiving. If you miss a spot you can wipe it off with a damp rag (while still wet) and re-apply.
  • Dries very quickly creating a hard durable finish. Driveaway time is within minutes rather than hours required for most other headlight coatings and full cure is achieved within 24 hours.
  • Water-based. Non-hazardous, non-toxic, can be shipped by air, environmentally friendly, etc.
  • Longer shelf life. Guaranteed 6 months unopened or 2 months after opening.
  • Longer applied life. Typically, protects headlights for an average of 6 months longer than C2P and 12+ months longer than competitive products before showing signs of deterioration.
  • Longer mixed life. As long as it is stored in an airtight container Infinity can be used anytime within 12 hours after mixing.
  • Fills the pores of a freshly sanded headlight lens to seal and protect against the elements.
  • Excellent bonding strength to resist peeling.
  • Extremely cost-effective. 80 headlights per kit
  • Does not fill scratches and sanding marks as well as a thick petroleum-based product coating so you have to spend the time to make sure the lens is properly sanding and polished prior to application.
Bottom Line:
  • There is no better all-around headlight restoration coating than Infinity. It dries fast, provides excellent protection at a very competitive price and no other headlight coating holds up as well to the elements.


  • The easy-to-apply, self-leveling formula makes headlights look as if new even if sanded and polished by a novice. Nothing looks better!
  • Goes on thick to cover light scratches and sanding marks far better than any other headlight restoration coating.
  • Applied life is not as good as Infinity but still considered excellent for industry standards.
  • Excellent bonding strength to resist peeling.
  • Provides a thick, tough barrier to protect headlights from the elements.
  • Very cost-effective. 60+ headlights per kit.
  • Safe drive-away time is about 60 minutes and it takes several days to achieve a full cure. That is still better than many headlight restoration products but not as good as Infinity.
  • Considered a hazardous material for shipping purposes so it is very expensive to ship by air. There is a big push to do away with all petroleum-based products for environmental reasons.
  • Shelf life is 6 months unopened and 3 months after opening.
  • Applied life is slightly shorter than infinity.
  • Mixed life is limited. We suggest mixing for each pair of headlights to be restored or if stored in an airtight container it should be used within 60 minutes.
Bottom Line:
  • There simply is no better headlight restoration for ease of use (reduces sanding and polishing time) or for the “wow” factor. Coat2Protect is the number one choice for impressing customers.
