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 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.
Perma Shine’s silicone-free tire clear coat outperforms all tire "dressings". The tires will be restored back to the new black luster look they had when you bought them. Perma shine is a permanent nano clear coat. It will restore tire shine that lasts for months! Perma Shine permanent tire clear coat is environmental safe and silicone free. Most tire “dressings” last for days while Perma Shine last for up to 30 washes. You will be surprised how different your whole vehicle will look when you apply Perma Shine. Your old dirty tires will come to life in one application. Perma shine Tire clear coat dries in minutes and lasts for months. The average customer, with driving and care habits should expect 9-12 months of gloss retention before they may desire a recoat. It contains no silicone and is safe to use around a body shop. Virtually all popular tire shine products are oil or silicone based.
FABRIC PRO-TECH protects all kinds of fabrics from water and oil based stains. Its reathable and extremely durable thanks to unique ALWAYS DRY'S ULTRA DURABLE NANO TECH COATINGS. FABRIC PRO-TECH makes ordinary fabrics waterproof and easy to clean. Use it to prevent soaking, swelling or rotting on any fabric. From out door furniture, sails, tents and awnings to your car’s soft tops, automotive cloth interior, shoes, hats, shirts, ties. The nano particles of FABRIC PRO-TECH bond to the fibers individually, leaving the texture unaffected, allowing the material to breathe. This means 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 FABRIC PRO-TECH much better durability and overall performance. Typically a FABRIC PRO-TECH treated surface will last 5 times longer than conventional water repellent coatings.
Always dry LLC is in the business of delivering the best, most efficient, longest lasting coating technology on the market. Our mission is to bring our world class technology to all automotive dealers and everyday drivers. Through our honest business practices and actions, we will remind those we encounter that principles, relationships and customer service are not to be lost in the profit bottom line. They ARE the bottom line. WE realize that the automotive and detailing industry is still utilizing OUT dated, time-consuming, limited technology that is very costly and produces short-term results that do not protect the original quality of a paint finish. We want to change the way vehicle reconditioning, detailing and paint protection are done. Our product line currently include Ultimate in ceramic coat 9H-LDC, 9H-LDC PRO, VISION TECH, PERMA SEAL glass, PERMA SHINE TIRE, WHEEL PRO-TECH, FABRIC PRO-TECH, LEATHER PRO-TEH, ALWAYS BLACK TRIM, CHROME PRO-TECH, DASH PRO-TECH.
Vision Tech repels mud, snow, ice, insect impacts, and anything that can be splattered on your windshield. In addition to improving visibility, it also makes clean up and maintenance a breeze. Most Rain repellants on the market are basic and one dimensional. Silicone based wax or other similar glass coatings that SIT on top of the glass surface. Vision Tech Nano Coat is liquid glass with epoxy resin like adhesion that permanently bonds to the surface of the glass merging and transforming it into an ultra-durable hydrophobic smooth surface. This bond improves the strength of the glass making it super resistant to rock chips. Also improved night vision because it makes the surface smooth. This reduces the splitting and deflection of light, thus reducing the night glare by 35%. Vision Tech does not break down when exposed to sunlight or any temperatures making it last for up to 1 year!
Based on similar technology as our 9H-LDC PRO, Wheel pro-tech forms a permanent chemical bond creating an ultra-hard, hydrophobic surface. What makes Wheel PRO-TECH different is that its specially formulated to withstand extreme heat created by the braking system of vehicles. It is the best protection for all type of wheels whether standard, Painted, chrome or alloys. Wheel pro-tech’s unique, exceptionally fine surface techneology and chemical bonding mechanism, allows the coating to last for years. The former property gives the coating its excellent stain and contaminant resistance, and the chemical bond formed between the wheel surfaces and makes the coating durable. WHEEL PRO-TECH is the ultimate protection against many elements. Its virtually maintenance free and use of harsh chemicals to clean wheels is not required. This self-cleaning effect makes Wheel Pro-Tech a very environmentally friendly product.
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.
