Such a car is independent of energy supply infrastructure, and positioned in the market for buyers looking for a unique vehicle.

Leather Pro-Tech protects all kinds of leather from water and oil based stains. It is breathable and extremely durable thanks to unique Always Dry's Ultra Durable Nano Tech Coatings. Leather Pro-Tech makes ordinary leather waterproof and easy to clean. Use it to prevent soaking, swelling or rotting on any leather. From out door furniture, tents and awnings to your car’s soft tops, automotive leather interior, shoes, hats. The nano particles of Leather Pro-Tech bond to the fibers 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. Being alcohol based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving Leather Pro-Tech a much better durability and overall performance. Typically a Fabric Pro-Tech treated surface will last 5 times longer than conventional water repellent coatings, with the lifespan of the product on soft tops for as long as 3 years.

Dash Pro-Tech from Always Dry

Dash Pro-Tech dash and trim restore uses specially formulated water base nano coating instead of silicone to bring back the life to faded interior. Vinyl and leather, dash, trim moldings, and more! Environmental elements can be damaging to any vehicles, fading, dash trim, and other interior parts. Dash pro-tech revives the appearance of plastic, leather, rubber and vinyl while protecting against harsh UV rays. Dash pro-tech restores a shiny new car like finish on sun-faded dash, trim, moldings and even leather seats. This is not just a cosmetic dressing. Silicone products will make plastic, vinyl and rubber offer temporary shine but will not offer any longtime solution. Silicone can also make surfaces very slippery. These dressings merely sit on top of the surface. Plus, silicone oils have been known to dry out the applied areas creating a bigger problem. Silicone also tends to leave a greasy residue even after buffing.

9H-LDC PRO by Always Dry LLC is a revolutionary next generation product for paint protection.

9H-LDC PRO by always dry LLC is a revolutionary next generation product. Unlike most regular 9H coatings, 9H-LDC PRO is dual-composite that consists of two different layers, ultra-hard 9H top layer and softer 7H bottom layer. Together they form a 1-2 micron thick coat on the surface of the vehicle. 9H-LDC PRO FORMS A SUPER STRONG chemical bond with the paint MOLECULES and becomes a PERMANENT part OF THE painted surface unlike other products which simply lie on top. 9H-LDC PRO offers an instant extreme water repellent effect and unlike other 9H coatings, it can be exposed to water within an hour after application. It reaches full 9H scratch resistant properties once fully cured in 8 hours. Being true 9H (ultra-hard) it offers better scratch resistance than any other 9H product available on the market today. You do not need to put 10 layers to get scratch protection like some other coatings.
