Często zadawane pytania

MOJA WINYLOWA DESKA ROZDZIELCZA KLEI SIĘ. JAK MOGĘ SIĘ TEGO POZBYĆ?

Deskę rozdzielczą z winylu dokładnie wyczysci "Interior Shampoo". Pozbędzie się on lepkich zabrudzeń. W przypadku gdy uporczywe klejące zabrudzenie nie ustępuję, rekomendujemy "Intensive Tar Remover".

Do czyszczenia sztucznej skóry zalecamy użycie "Interior Shampoo". Jako powłokę zewnętrzną i zabezpieczającą sztuczną skórę polecamy "Vinyl & Rubber Care"

Do skóry buffalino idealnie nadaje się "Autoglym Leather Cleaner" razem z okresowo stosowanym "Autoglym Leather Care Balm".

Nie polecamy stosowania "Leather Cleaner" oraz "Leather Care Balm" na skórach innych niż samochodowe. Powodem jest inny rodzaj wykończenia skóry

Najlepiej będzie skorzystać z 2 produktów: "Leather Cleaner" dla powierzchni skórzanej, i "Interior Shampoo" dla powierzchni winylowej. Jednakże w przypadku użycia "Interior Shampoo" na powierzchni skórzanej - jest on całkowicie bezpieczny. NIE kieruj spray'u bezpośrednio na skórę, lecz na szmatkę i w ten sposób zaaplikuj produkt na powierzchnię. Polecamy wcześniej przetestować działanie w miejscu najmniej widocznym. NIE stosuj "Interior Shampoo" na skórze, której kolor był zmieniany lub była ona naprawiana.

Oba produkty są odpowiednie do skór w kolorze kremowym. Zawsze radzimy przetestować trwałość koloru w niewidocznym miejscu przed czyszczeniem całego siedzenia.

Czysta i sucha mikrofibra będzie najlepsza do zebrania nadmiaru nałożnego "Leather Care Balm".

Najlepszą metodą nakładania balsamu do pielęgnacji skóry na siedzisko z perforowanej skóry jest nakładanie balsamu zawsze na szmatkę, a nigdy bezpośrednio na skórę. Użyj niewielkiej ilości balsamu "Leather Care Balm" i rozprowadź równomiernie na całej powierzchni, dodając więcej w razie potrzeby. Użycie niewielkiej ilości balsamu pomoże uniknąć „wypełnienia” perforacji w skórze.

CZY MOGĘ STOSOWAĆ "WHEEL PROTECTOR" NA NIELAKIEROWANYCH KOŁACH?

Tak, "Wheel Protector" może być stosowany na nielakierowanych kołach.

Stosowanie "Clean Wheels" oraz "Custom Wheel Cleaner" na lakierowanych felgach jest całkowicie bezpieczne jeśli są one w dobrym stanie i zastosujesz się do etykiety na odwrocie

"Clean wheels" niekoniecznie usunie "High Definition Wax" z kół, lecz z pewnością wpłynie na właściwości powłoki wosku. Jeśli na kołach Twojego samochodu znajduje się "High Definition Wax", będą one zdecydowanie łatwiejsze w czyszczeniu. Dla tej konfiguracji polecamy bardziej stosowanie "Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner", z większą łatwością usunie on zanieczyszczenia.

"Custom Wheel Cleaner" będzie najlepszym wyborem przy felgach malowanych proszkowo.

Nie, "Custom Wheel Cleaner" nie może być stosowany na felgi dzielone.

"Custom Wheel Cleaner Kit" będzie odpowiedni dla kół z ceramicznymi tarczami hamulcowymi.

Możesz skorzystać z "Super Resin Polish" na punkty pokryte rdzą, jednak nie jest to rozwiązanie długoterminowe i właściwe zabezpieczenie przed dalszą korozją. Polecamy kontakt ze specjalistą w tej dziedzinie.

"Wheel Protector" został opracowany, aby jego efekt trwał 6 tygodni w zależności od warunków pogodowych i drogowych.

Zastąpiliśmy "Alloy Wheel Seal" nowym produktem "Wheel Protector". Jest to nowa formuła wykorzystująca całkowicie inną technologię oferującą powłokę superhydrofobową (odpychającą wodę), która zatrzymuje cząsteczki zanieczyszczeń przylegających do powierzchni. "Wheel Protector" zabezpieczy twoje felgi do 6 tygodni. Z kolei "Alloy Wheel Seal" oferował trwałość efektu na okres 2 tygodni.

Jest to zależne od rozmiaru kół w Twoim samochodzie, jednak średnio 300ml puszka wystarcza na zabezpieczenie 16 kół. Oznacza to, że jeśli stosujesz "Wheel Protector" co 6 tygodni, to jedna puszka wystarczy na 6 miesięcy!

"Wheel Protector" nie jest przystosowany do stosowania na felgi chromowane. Polecamy w tym przypadku zastosowanie "High Definition Wax".

We would advise pressure/jet/power wash owners to use Autoglym Pressure Wash in their detergent tank. Pressure Wash has been formulated for use in all types of household pressure washers. It contains a balanced blend of surface-active ingredients to lift grease, grime and traffic film without harm to polished paintwork, plastics and trim.

Do you sell a polish that does not contain silicone?

We do not have a silicone free polish.

You should always apply the polish first and then the wax. The polish does the renovating and repair work and the wax seals in and protects that polished paintwork.

You should wax your car when it ceases to repel water, or when an improvement in appearance is required. As a general rule of thumb, High Definition Wax will require 3-4 applications per year, depending on the type of weathering your car is exposed to.

To clean and preserve a carbon fibre roof or any other surface first ensure it is lacquered (if it isn't lacquered it will be rough and textured to the touch). First wash the area with Bodywork Shampoo Conditioner, then polish with Super resin Polish and finally seal and protect with High Definition Wax.

Only one coat of Extra Gloss Protection is sufficient for a long lasting protective layer. You will receive little benefit from layering and it may be difficult to maintain an even coat or it may remove the first layer.

Yes, after waxing with High Definition Wax it is ok to use Instant Show Shine. Aqua Wax and Rapid Detailer can be used to restore and add further protection to a waxed finish.

We do not recommend the use of High Definition Wax and Ultra Deep Shine together.

The use of Intensive Tar Remover over a surface treated with Extra Gloss Protection will weaken it. It is advisable to reapply Extra Gloss Protection to a treated surface after using Intensive Tar Remover.

To remove the adhesive from the L plate that remains on your car, use Intensive Tar Remover on the area as directed. This will safely break down the adhesive and allow you to simply wipe it off your paintwork.

Paint Renovator is to be used by hand and not by machine.

You can apply Super Resin Polish or Ultra Deep Shine with a polish sponge, ideally a foam Perfect Polish Applicator.

Aqua Wax can be used every time you wash and is a great top up wax to use in between applications of High Definition Wax.

The use of Rapid Detailer on a surface that has been treated with Extra Gloss Protection will not adversely affect its durability or finish. The Rapid Detailer will sit on top of the Extra Gloss, not remove it and actually add a layer of additional protection.

Super Resin Polish shouldn't be thought of as an abrasive, it is a gentle cleaner and polisher. There is no risk of damaging the lacquer during normal use and it can be used as often as required.

Rapid Detailer will not perform the same job as Extra Gloss Protection. Rapid Detailer is a quick cleaner, Extra Gloss Protection is a liquid wax sealant that will provide many months of protection and shine.

Super Resin Polish applied firmly will restore the colour to a faded red panel. However, if the paint his particularly bad it may require a professional product such as Autoglym Paint Renovator. Once the original colour has returned you can seal the surface with Extra Gloss Protection or High Definition Wax, although depending on the extent of the fade, you may need to polish more regularly.

With great difficulty. Most modern sun creams are designed to stay on skin that goes in and out of water, that has clothes pulled on and off and is resistant to the suns rays. As such it is good at sticking to surfaces such as car paintwork. There is some success using Super Resin Polish applied firmly to the area, although this does not work in 100% of cases. Even the sun cream manufacturers don't have a solution.

You cannot overuse use Super Resin.

You should only use one type of polish on a car. There is no benefit at all to using both Super Resin Polish and Ultra Deep Shine.

Whilst Ultra Deep Shine shares many characteristics with Super Resin Polish, it has added components to combat swirls and holograms on darker paints. These added components mean that Ultra Deep Shine needs to be used in a slightly different way to Super Resin Polish. With Super Resin Polish, you can apply the polish to the whole vehicle and then work round buffing it off. With Ultra Deep Shine it is best to apply to a panel, allow the polish to dry and then buff off immediately and then moving on to the next panel. If you do this you will find the product no harder to use than Super Resin Polish.

Interior Shampoo and a firm sponge will clean the green moss or algae from exterior rubber trim. Depending on the extent of the algae you may need several applications and a good deal of scrubbing, but it will come off.
