Vision Tech from Always Dry, Extreme Windshield Coat

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!

Los Angeles, California – September 25, 2015 – TORQ® Tool Company announced today the launch of yet another streamlined machine polisher, the premium TORQ®22D Random Orbital Polisher.

Introducing Wheel Pro-Tech, the ultimate Wheel protection against any harsh elements.

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 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.
