Optimum Leather Protectant (formerly Optimum Protectant Plus) is another innovative product from OPT that cleans, restores, and protects leather surfaces, vinyl surfaces, and moldings. Optimum Leather Protectant has a balance of cleaners, penetrating oils, and UV inhibitors that restores the original color of these surfaces, protects against and hides any scratches, and protects against sun damage.
Just like automotive paint which has undergone major changes in technology, automotive leather and vinyl surfaces have also improved considerably in the past decade. Nearly all automotive leather surfaces are treated with special chemicals that provide resistance to scratching and marring, increase their durability, and provide protection from weathering. The chemistry of vinyl surfaces has improved dramatically as well to give these surfaces leather look and leather feel. The vinyl surfaces are also treated with similar chemicals as those used for automotive leather to increase their durability and to provide protection from weathering.
These protective chemicals are lost over a period of a few months. Optimum Leather Protectant cleans these surfaces and replenishes the protective chemicals while adding UV protection to these substrates. Most leather or vinyl protectants in the marketplace leave an oily film behind on these surfaces which gives them a glossy look and an slick feel. Since these products are not absorbed into these surfaces, they last a few days and mainly act as a dust magnet.
Optimum Leather Protectant keeps leather supple and helps reduce cracking of vinyl and leather surfaces, as well as reducing scratching and marring. Optimum Protectant Plus penetrates and adheres to these surfaces; therefore, it does not make these surfaces oily or slick and provides lasting protection. Optimum Leather Protectant also works great on the outside trims and moldings. These are just some of the reasons why Optimum Leather Protectant is preferred by many detailing professionals. FAQS Why do I need to use a protectant on the vinyl or leather surfaces?
These surfaces are treated to give them protection against scratching and from the elements and to make cleaning easier. Over time, these protectants are lost due to abrasion and exposure to the sun. Optimum Leather Protectant replenishes these oils as well as adding UV protectants to these surfaces. What is the difference between Optimum Leather Protectant and other vinyl or leather protectants?
Most other products use topical oils that leave a greasy film behind which acts as dust magnet and is transferred to anything that comes in contact with. Optimum Protectant Plus only contains oils that penetrate and adhere to these surfaces which offers long-lasting protection Does Optimum Leather Protectant change the appearance of these surfaces to a glossy finish?
No. There are some products that are oily and can turn these surfaces shiny temporarily. Optimum Leather Protectant brings back the original color of these surfaces and keeps the colors from fading over time.
