This video is an update to the plastic trim comparison. As I am constantly looking for the best trim coating...I have decided to put the best of the best on one plastic panel and test them head to head once and for all. The line up consists of nine plastic trim coatings...Artdeshine plastic/Leather coating, Gtechniq C4, Lone Star, Solution Finish, Wolfgang, D3 | RENEW PROTECT, Lithium, Black Pearl, and Cerakote. Which one looks the best? Which one lasts the longest?

Setting up for another video and hardcore test of D3 | RENEW PROTECT.

Many like to use BLAK as a base treatment and follow with GLOZ ... so, we are putting it to the test.


This trailer tire will be dropped in a tidal marsh for a week!


The Tire SURVIVED!  We are completing the video now. AFTER 1 WEEK IN A TIDAL SALT MARSH ! ! !




RV/Golf Cart/Motorcycle-Safe Protectants for Tire Preservation & Tire Dry Rot Prevention


There are two main degrading agents that attack tires, plastic, and vinyl—ultraviolet (UV) light and ozone. Both attack the long hydrocarbon chains of the rubber, trim, and vinyl skin by breaking these bonds, shortening the molecules with a resulting loss of elasticity and other properties.

Tire manufacturers add two primary sacrificial protectants to rubber. To protect against UV, manufacturers add carbon black. Therefore, tires and trim are almost always black. The carbon black will turn white or gray as it absorbs and transforms the UV energy and disperses it as heat. To protect against ozone, tire manufacturers add a synthetic wax-based sacrificial protectant. The ozone attacks the wax and gradually depletes it. As the tire rolls, additional wax is forced to the surface of the tire. This process is often referred to as ‘blooming.' This oxidized wax will appear brown on the tire surface. This blooming slowly refreshes the surface wax protectant. A tire that has not had regular use and flexed will have the wax depleted by ozone and thus begin to degrade and suffer dry rot. Solvent-based silicone and oil products, which are the most commonly advertised ‘protectants,' actually dissolve the wax and cause premature fading and sidewall cracking. Nationally advertised protectants contain harsh petroleum surfactants and are most often blended with glycol (antifreeze) to prevent drying and provide a wet and shiny look. Unfortunately, the glycol also keeps the harmful surfactants wet and active on the surface. This will degrade any materials to which these types of products are applied.  Many tire manufacturers may not honor their warranties if they detect the use of such protectant products.

Silicone protectants also present a health and liability risk. That shiny and slick silicone surface and its solvents are a risk on two levels. They are very dangerous to use on vehicle interiors. Protectants, old-school type or newer ceramic coatings, can present a slip hazard. They can make steering wheels and pedals slick and expose occupants to toxins. These protectants are not safe for use on vehicles such as boats, golf carts, and motorcycles! If you read the fine print on labels and brand websites you will find disclaimers about these risks.

Protectant Check: If it feels slick or greasy after application, it will slowly destroy your tires.

Vinyl surfaces have a protective skin that is depleted by off-gassing. Plastic will also slowly off-gas and degrade from weathering. This appears as fading and eventually cracking. Again, typical protectants will break down the surface, hastening the premature formation of fading and cracks. Another negative, which you have likely experienced, is that silicone also attracts dirt and dust particles. A quality protectant should contain a strong UV-blocking compound to bolster the efforts of the carbon black and should not contain surfactants that remain active after applied.

Ceramic coatings and ceramic protectants have flooded the marketplace. We first introduced quartz and titanium blends into our full product line in 2015. There are now many cheap copies and many products claiming to contain ceramics. The majority of these are not ceramic. Polysiloxane is most often what you are buying with  these ‘cheap ceramics.' Polysiloxane is just a step above silicone protectants, yet only gives the user a bit more longevity and no ceramic qualities or abilities.

True ceramic provides excellent protection and an enhancement of color and shine. Ceramics do not qualify as true restoration products, yet are often marketed as such. If your fleet is new or near-new condition, a real ceramic may be all you need. D3 RENEW PROTECT has always preferred to take ceramic a step further. Since 2015 we have always maintained a ‘ceramic-hybrid’ product line. This hybrid gives the user a true 100% or better OEM renewal and all the strong benefits of ceramics.

D3 RENEW PROTECT supplies essential feeder elements that restore the original composition (OEM) of the substrate while creating a polymer/ceramic hybrid dry-seal ozone and UV block with strong thermal stability via silica quartz, zinc, and titanium nano oxides. This technology also slows the blooming and off-gassing processes and greatly enhances the retention of protective elements within the surface. D3 RENEW PROTECT BLAK contains a high level of carbon black and is ideal for the restoration of faded black surfaces. SATN is also maxed-out with UV radiative transfer agents, which gives a moderate to low shine achieved with oxides and nano oxides. GLOZ also contains these elements and provides a high direct refractive index and high shine. These products can also be layered for even greater protection and longevity. This can be done with BLAK serving as a base coat, to be followed with one treatment of GLOZ or SATN.

BLAK, SATN, and GLOZ are silicone- and oil-free and contain no active solvents. The products are low-VOC and non-slip motorcycle and golf cart-safe protectants. They create a dry-seal finish without the run-off of toxic solvents and glycol produced by typical 'protectants.’

"WOW ..... I mean WOW. I had my doubts about this product. I searched online and saw videos but still couldn't believe it worked until I applied it to my very faded golf cart plastic parts that were almost white in some areas. My 2011 golf cart's plastic parts were restored to new with very little of the product being used. I applied 2 coats 3 months ago and still looks brand new. BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!"

Why using typical 'protectants' is a BAD idea

Why using typical 'protectants' is a BAD idea

Well, how to keep this brief: so called 'protectants' are mainly water, glycol (antifreeze), and powdered sand (silica). Making this combo work requires emulsification. Silica holds mid-level UV reflective values and is harmless, but the emulsifiers and the glycol are the bad bits!
Glycol is used to maintain hydration to keep the surface wet. That old tire or faded trim looks great when it rains, right? That's what protectants do: provide temporary hydration of the substrate. Glycol is also a dangerous neurotoxin, so it's NOT good for interiors. As a final insult, the emulsifiers will eventually break down any surface, especially when it remains active due to the hydrating effect of the glycol.
Choose D3 | RENEW PROTECT for a safe, dry seal that will actually protect!
