STYLING: IN­TE­RIOR DE­SIGN

MAIN­TE­NANCE

Fast Car - - Styling -

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.
