Today (Friday 24 July 2015) the leaders in high performance surface coating technology have launched a range of new products, with the aim of making cars a more hygienic, and safer place for all of the family.

With drivers spending on average three years of their life inside a car, Gtechniq the brand behind high-tech paint protection, have joined forces with BioCote® leaders in antimicrobial technology. Together they have introduced three interior protection products to help combat bacteria, odours and staining.

Rob Earle, managing director of Gtechniq, said: “Last month we launched I2 Tri-Clean the first product in our antibacterial range – the cleaner is a massive hit among detailers and car enthusiasts.

“We have now launched three more products with added BioCote antimicrobial technology, to reduce the amount of bacteria found in a car, helping to combat germs and illness.”

The first product in the new interior antibacterial protection range is L1 Leather Guard AB, with an RRP of £7.25 (100ml), the coating forms a durable abrasion resistant matte finish which offers the best ever protection against abrasion damage, UV rays, dye transfer and other discolouration.

C6 Matte Dash AB has been designed to protect dashboard and door card materials including leather, vinyl, plastics and rubberised finishes. C6 adds abrasion resistance, dirt, water, static and UV repellency to treated surfaces. At an RRP of £7.25 (100ml) the product will not affect the gloss of your car’s trim and leaves a natural feel and finish.

Finally, I1 Smart Fabric AB protects all kinds of fabrics from water and oil based stains. The product makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean. RRP £8.51 (100ml) as well as the antibacterial properties, I1 is breathable and extremely durable.

Dr Richard Hastings, BioCote technical director, said: “Our technology creates surfaces inhospitable to microbes such as bacteria and mould. When they come into contact with a surface protected with any of the new Gtechniq interior coatings, the technology irreparably damages them and disrupts normal cell functions. This prevents reproduction, which results in the microbes death.”

This weekend (25-26 July 2015) visit and get 25% off the new products, or visit Gtechniq on Sunday 26 July 2015 during Wastock 2015, at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.
