In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

Our Price: £45.00 (inc VAT)
Sole distributor apart from the Scottish inventor for this award-winning product - cleans, restores and protects plastic rear screens on any convertible. Step One enters the plastic, restoring suppleness and preventing cracks and splits, Step Two finely polishes out surface scratches. See more at www.morethanpolish.com/, our sister site. We know its not cheap, but it works every time and is much cheaper than a new screen ! Seemingly similar products only contain the second, polish aspect, so do little to preserve your screen. Hindsight is recommended by Ford for its Street Ka, Mercedes for its Smart Roadster, and we've sold hundreds to customers with Porsche Boxster and 911 Cabriolets, Ferrari F355 and 360 Spider (we supply several main dealers of both marques), MX-5, MGF / MG TF, TVR, Rolls Royce and many more.

WE HAVE PLENTIFUL SUPPLIES OF THIS PRODUCT. NO LIMIT ON QUANTITIES ORDERED A unique product from the car care market for current concerns. Product comes from clinical sources. Bactericide and Virucide. In use as a spray and wipe (or even better, spray and leave) product for areas touched by the public such as counter tops, door handles, steering wheels, train and bus handles/grab rails, handheld devices, VDUs, supermarket trolley handles. Most effective if left to dry. Can be used on hands too. Eliminates and prevents bacterial growth at the microscopic level - kills MRSA, salmonella, listeria, E-coli, (food poisoning), legionella (bacteria causing legionnaires disease) and aspergillus niger (mould). Its already in use in the NHS and kills 99.9% of bacteria within 24 hours. Will it work on Covid-19 ? As its been impossible to isolate that and test against it, we are informed that the 2 main ingredients in the product are on the list of chemicals supplied by the Government in early March as suitable to combat its spread. It is also currently used in mobile medical facilities to sanitise all surfaces from major infection and after the public have been in them. When applied to products and surfaces, the active ingredients cause the functions of bacteria to break down, resulting in the prevention of bacterial growth. For any valeters who want to offer an extra clean service or protect themselves, people hiring cars, people with children or pets, people buying any second hand goods – many many uses. A 500ml spray bottle is included. The price of this product is the same as at its introduction in 2010. Bottle types and labels may vary from image as we're struggling to keep up with demand. Race Glaze Anti-Bacterial & Viricidal Cleaner Review Mike Pariera of Minutia Detailing, Croydon (Greater London) - May 2020 https://www.minutiadetailing.com/ Everyone may be wondering what this image means! It was a way I could successfully carry out some testing to determine if a surface contained ATP and therefore how clean the surface was. In today's detailing industry, one can simply register a company (some don’t even do that!) and set up a detailing company quite easily, with no major knowledge or experience. When I set up Minutia Detailing it was after years of learning about paint in depth and working on my own cars. This gave me the experience and confidence to work on other cars. Like everything though, there is always more and more to learn too better yourself. I have had this device for a while now and it’s certainly great but also a pain for OCD, I ended up testing tap water vs. filtered water and all sorts! The reason for this post is, due to the current Covid 19 virus, I can see so many posts about cleaning interiors and steam cleaning etc that I wanted to actually test what methods work best. To understand how my device works: ATP is the energy-containing molecule that is found in every living cell. Therefore, it is a useful indicator that contamination may exist on a surface or other part of the food supply chain, from irrigation water to farm to processor, transporter, handler, or retail market. But since all cells contain ATP, a positive reading in relative light units (RLU) will indicate any cell, and not just bacterial cells. Furthermore, not all bacterial cells cause disease. And viruses, which are not technically living cells, usually do not contain any ATP at all. Nevertheless, ATP monitoring is valuable because it points to areas where bacteria (and, to a more limited degree, viruses) may lurk. After all, bacteria are cells, and areas that record very low RLUs have fewer cells and are far less likely to harbour pathogenic microorganisms The device I am using comes pre-set with Pass and Fail limits of 10 and 30 respectively. Any score of 10 RLU or less is a Pass. Scores from 11 to 30 RLU are a Caution. Any score greater than 30 RLU is a Fail. Bear in mind this is a fail in the food preparation industry. With an ATP monitoring system, (or sometimes referred to as - an ATP sanitation monitoring system), ATP is brought into contact with Hygiena's unique liquid-stable reagent in the test device. Light is then emitted in direct proportion to the amount of ATP present in the sample, providing information on the level of contamination in seconds. Bear in mind before any tests on vehicles I have used this device copiously. An example of one test is when I started with a large sheet of plastic and using tape to sectioned it off. I could then do a before and after using the swabs on each section with different cleaners. Each section would certainly have a different level of contamination but at least a before and after on each section would give me an idea of how effective each cleaner was. I used plain water as a point of comparison too. With any chemistry test so many variables are considered. I kept the batch of swabs the same and the same temperature and timing once the sample was gathered. The results I found are most cleaners don’t do much at all unless left for 4 minutes or longer, even with Dettol, a simple spray and wipe leaves behind a lot! Steam cleaning proves not effective unless it’s the first and hottest bit of steam that comes out of the nozzle,that would be impossible to hit every surface with that and most of the steam cools down a lot once the blast of steam disperses. A car that was not cleaned by means of vacuuming and wiping was tested with an ozone machine and it proved only effective if left on for at least 30 minutes, it still was not perfect. The investigations I conducted are almost too much to write but my conclusion is the best cleaner which has been around for years is Raceglaze Antibacterial spray. The photos show a test on the steering wheel, on a marked off section, the reading of 701 was taken. I then sprayed on the Race Glaze, counted to 5 and wiped it. It went straight down to 10, which is acceptable in hygiene testing in food places. Left on for 4 minutes, it then went down to 0. My conclusion is, it takes a lot of cleaning to actually make all surfaces free of contamination. Bleach gets a 0 reading easily but we can’t use that on delicate interiors. A combination of using an ozone machine (the cheaper ones do nothing at all!) and using the Race Glaze cleaner with almost certainly keep things clean. Hope this helps you guys. Mike

ScreenSheen

Our Price: £26.00 (inc VAT)
Our own proven, convertible plastic rear screen restoration system. The results speak for themselves in the before, half and half and finished screen images supplied by a customer. This was one treatment only on a Sunbeam Alpine. Why plastic rear screens go brittle, milky and discoloured – and how to restore them. Clear vinyl windows are made flexible by plasticisers that are easily leached from the surface. Solvents and unsuitable cleaners speed the process, leading to brittleness. Cloudiness and discolouring are caused by dirt, microscopic scratches and contaminants that penetrate the very soft surface of the vinyl. Wax and oil cause cloudiness and yellowing, so waxy dressings should be rigorously avoided. Deterioration of vinyl is accelerated by UV in sunlight, and unlike coloured vinyls, plastic windows have very little protection. The solution is to remove scratches and contamination and then, most importantly, to protect the surface with a coating that inhibits loss of plasticisers and provides UV protection. The solution is Screensheen, proven in a variety of tough environments on plastic screens. It Removes scratches and scuffs Restores transparency Protects against loss of plasticisers and UV damage Is also suitable for Acrylic The product is easy to use and the results are impressive – much cheaper than buying a new screen too, which will usually leak due to mismatch of stitching holes. It's a simple three step process. 1. MicroBuff paste takes out visible scratches 2. MicroClear removes microscopic abrasion marks and haze to restore transparency 3. MicroGlaze provides an optical coating that improves clarity, protects against UV damage and inhibits the loss of plasticisers. The treated surface is antistatic and repels dirt so that it stays clean longer. A Kit contains everything you need to improve about 6 screens - applicator cloths and 75ml each of MicroBuff, MicroClear and MicroGlaze.

Colour Enhance (250ml)
In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

Our Price: £8.99 (inc VAT)
Quite simply the best product we have ever seen for restoration and preservation of colour on exterior plastic and rubber surfaces. Why suffer streaky finishes or products that either wash off after a couple of weeks or fly off when you drive away ? Most other products are silicone based so sit on the surface, this is petroleum based so is absorbed, producing lasting results. This crucial difference in formulation makes all the difference in use. A bottle will last several years as you need so little and it lasts so long, up to a year before reapplication is necessary. No-one need ever drive round with faded black plastic bumpers or external trim like spoilers, window trims, underbody or in-engine bay plastics again, we feel a burning desire to show every such car owner we see what a huge difference this amazing product will make. For all plastics, interior & exterior - rubbing strips, spoilers, tyres, bumpers, engine parts, interiors. Exfoliates and restores weathered grey plastic unlike silicone-based products due to being lightly petroleum based, so: lasts up to 5 times longer than water based dressings, around 12 months, won't spray off tyres when you drive away. For blacks and coloured plastics, inside and out. Strongly recommended as a tyre dressing to leave a matt finish, or buff lightly to leave more satin. This product was changed from its previous green colour in 2010 but is otherwise identical. Race Glaze Colour Enhance is silicone-free so is bodyshop safe and is hydrophobic (makes water bead off the surface it is applied to).
