Evercoat Z-Grip OPTEX Premium Color Change Filler/Nikki/Bog 3.8LT with Hardener. 100382.




Z-GRIP® OPTEX® is an advanced clog-free, lightweight body filler with patented OPTEX Color-Changing Technology. There’s no second guessing; once mixed with cream hardener, OPTEX changes from pink to green indicating the repair is ready to sand.


Formulated for superior adhesion to galvanized steel, bare steel, and aluminum. Z-Grip OPTEX is a part of the METALWORKS® System that guarantee that the repair will maintain the O.E.M. corrosion warranty on original factory corrosion protected sheet metal and galvanized sheet metal when used in accordance with the application instructions.
