Hydrophobic, Long-term Protection
What is Opti-Guard Fabric?
Opti-Guard Fabric is a protectant that creates a hydrophobic coating to protect fabric seats, floor-mats, carpets, fabric convertible tops and other textile surfaces for the ultimate car interior protection. When liquids come in contact with Opti-Guard Fabric that has been applied to closed loop textiles, these surfaces repel the substance and liquids roll off without penetrating or staining the material. Additionally, for materials with an open structure such as plush carpets where liquids are able to penetrate the surface, the coating prevents any penetration of the fibers themselves and resists permanent staining of the material. Opti-Guard Fabric provides a hydrophobic barrier between the outside world and the interior of your car.
How does it work?
Opti-Guard Fabric forms a strong bond with the fibers to prevent removal during cleaning. This means that Opti-Guard remains intact to ensure ultimate car interior protection. This bond between the substrate and the coating creates a surface that produces a very high contact angle when in contact with liquids. Due to this extremely high contact angle, liquids are unable to attach or penetrate the fibers and are repelled in droplets. This means, that the hydrophobic application provides a rebound-like or slide-like effect for liquids that come into contact with these surfaces and will protect the interior of your car. Acting much like water on a lotus leaf, Opti-Guard Fabric ensures high-quality car interior protection; it creates a microcosmic slippery surface on these closed-loop fabrics.
Because of these properties, Opti-Guard Fabric works to protect your fabric convertible tops as well. When a liquid hits that fabric top exterior surface, beads are formed and simply roll off the convertible top.
This prevents the need for any abrasive cleaning products and prevents wear and tear. When combined with Optimum Fabric Cleaner & Protectant, the Opti-Guard system provides permanent protection for these surfaces. With Opti-Guard fabric, your car fabric protection is maximized.
Why does it matter?
Your car interior protection should be for the long-term. With Opti-Guard Fabric, you can maximize the longevity of the protection of your car and prevent unnecessary wear and tear so that you can enjoy the ride.
