    Do screen protectors remove the original coating? I would guess so.
    Can you replace it after? I would guess so.

    Anyone got more general or specific info on the coating?

    Thanks.

    No, they don't remove the coating and yes you can replace oleophobic coating if it is removed using a 3rd party system - http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...=mobile&field-keywords=oleophobic+coating+kit

    What's so special about the paint on my car that it doesn't come off when I drive down the highway.

    The bond between the coating and the glass is stronger than the bond between the screen protector and the coating so it won't be removed when the protector is.
