Protektiv HYDRO is a new generation ceramic paint coating. Unlike traditional paint protection products which can break down over time, the combination of traditional and advanced ceramics in this formula deliver a coating that outlasts and out performs many other ceramic paint coatings. HYDRO coating contains both Silicon Dioxide and Silicon Carbide. Silicon Dioxide creates […]
I have used a number of products in my previous vehicles on both vinyl and leather – most leave a sticky residue and often are slippery and shiny. Why is this?
Because many off-the-shelf products contain significant amounts of silicone, this can cause the surface to become slippery, cause the surface to sweat which creates a sticky residue, and leave a shine on the surface that can sometimes be distracting and create glare. High Performance Vinyl Conditioner and Leather Preserver are both purpose-built and silicone free.
As I have never had leather interior in a vehicle before, I am unsure about what maintenance will be required. What is the best way to protect the leather seats in my new vehicle?
MotorOne High Performance Leather Preserver is a purpose-built, lanolin-based formula that not only protects the leather in your vehicle against cracking, splitting and discolouration, the lanolin in the formula helps keep the seats soft and supple. Unlike off-the-shelf products, it is designed specifically for leather and does not require any reapplication.
I have used an off-the-shelf product on the vinyl in my previous vehicles, however, I have found that when I apply this product to my dash area, it appears to cause fogging on my windscreen – why is this?
The product you are using may contain high quantities of silicone. This can sometimes vapourise when the cabin of the vehicle gets very hot. This can result in fogging on glass which is close to the area where the product has been applied. MotorOne High Performance Vinyl Conditioner is a silicone-free formula.
Are there any solvents in your formulas? Being a parent with small children, I have concerns about exposing my children to harmful products.
No – our formula is water-based, making it kinder to not only the occupants of the vehicle, but to our environment!
Bactishield is an anti-bacterial system that works to inhibit bacteria in the coated fibres. Bacteria can contribute to odours, and also potentially impact on health and wellbeing of some occupants of the vehicle. Bactishield also prevents mould and mildew which are often triggers for respiratory illnesses such as asthma.
With small children, I would like to protect the fabric on my seats. What is the difference between a take-home (off-the-shelf) product and your High Performance Fabric & Carpet Protection?
Take-home products could more accurately be described as a ‘maintenance program’. As most are only surface sprays and do not completely coat the fibres, they require constant checking for repellency and reapplication on a regular basis. Our High Performance Fabric & Carpet Protection is a once-off permanent solution to protection against staining from common food […]
Yes, all Protektiv HYDRO coatings are water-based. No harmful solvents are used in the formulas.
What is the difference between Protektiv HYDRO Fabric & Carpet protection and a retail brand such as Scotchgard?
Scotchgard like many “off-the-shelf products” is a surface spray – when sprayed onto the surface it creates a barrier to spills. However, because it only seals the surface it does wear off over time and will need reapplication in the event you have a spill and clean the surface. Protektiv seals the entire fibre and creates a […]
I have heard that some vinyl and leather coatings can cause fogging on the interior glass – will this happen with Protektiv HYDRO?
No – fogging on interior glass is often exacerbated by using coatings that contain silicone. Because the silicone vapourizes when the cabin on the vehicle gets hot, it leaves a sticky film on the glass which is difficult to remove. Protektiv interior protection does not contain any silicone. The active ingredient in the formula is […]
