STYLING: INTERIOR DESIGN
Leather is a natural product and needs maintenance and, just like our own skin benefits from moisturisers, so do interior leathers! There’s no need to steal your missus’s Dior Hydra Life cream and start rubbing it into your seats though, as Gtechniq have scientifically developed a bunch of leather cleaners and conditioners for this exact purpose…
I2 Tri-Clean, £12.98 (500ml)
Gtechniq, the name behind high-tech paint protection and car care products, has teamed up with BioCote® leaders in antimicrobial technology, to create I2 Tri-Clean, an interior cleaner that kills bacteria, and neutralises odours.
I2 is a powerful pH neutral cleaner with deep cleansing properties. There is no need to use water, simply spray on a surface and wipe until the area is clean.
With added BioCote® antibacterial technology, the cleaner kills 99.9-percent of bacteria, ensuring surfaces remain hygienic and fresh, actively reducing the number of microbes present. Ingredients in I2 Tri-Clean include a true odour absorber, not an odour mask, which eliminates tacky residues that attract dirt.
C6 Matte Dash AB, £7.25 (100ml)
C6 Matte Dash is specifically designed to protect dashboard and door card materials including vinyl, plastics and rubberised finishes.
The coating adds abrasion resistance and UV protection to treated surfaces. And with added BioCote® antimicrobial technology, the treated surfaces will be hygienic and fresh.
C6 will not affect the gloss of your car’s trim and leaves a natural feel.
L1 Leather Guard, £7.25 (100ml
L1 Leather Guard AB forms an abrasion resistant matte finish which offers the best protection against UV rays, dye transfer and discolouration. This product also contains BioCote® antimicrobial technology. L1 is ideal protection for seats - particularly bolsters, steering wheels, and highwear leather areas. It will give three to 12 months durability depending on how high-wear the area protected is.
I1 Smart Fabric, £16.00 (500ml)
I1 Smart Fabric leaves no remnants of a spillage and moisture simply falls off a coated surface. Laboratory testing reveals that I1 V2 repels water to the highest standard set by the American Association of Textile Chemists and Colorists (AATCC) – ISO 5. I1 Smart Fabric is available with or without BioCote® antimicrobial technology.
The technology behind I1 Smart Fabric makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean. It can be used to prevent soaking, swelling or rotting on any fabric.
Nano particles that make up I1 Smart Fabric coat each fabric fibre individually, leaving the texture unaffected, allowing the material to breathe. This means stale air will still be able to escape, while repelling water and oil-based liquids.
