IDA May Webinar - Polishing in the Modern Era

Date & Time: Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 12pm CST

Speaker: Yvan Lacroix, CD-SV, RT, Vice-President of Opti-Coat LLC

Bio: With over three decades in the industry, Yvan has had mobile business, shops, owned franchises, worked in R&D for various companies, and taught detailers around the world.  He is now VP of Optimum Polymer Technologies traveling the world meeting detailers.

Description: In this presentation, we will discuss how polishing has and needs to evolve to adapt to today’s reality.  Gone are the days of pressure, heat, speed, and full correction.  The focus is shifting to presentation, profitability, and long-term customer satisfaction.


  1. Help detailers manage expectations – both the customer's and their own – when it comes to paint correction.
  2. Explore the required changes in our industry and paint in general.
