Armor All, the USA’s best-selling car care brand – best-known for Protectant, the world’s biggest selling car care product – comes up trumps this Summer with a foursome of products that are ideally suited to protecting and restoring the bodywork, wheels and glass of hardworking and hard-playing 4x4s.
First off, Armor All’s California scientistsperfected an advanced new formulation which delivers a higher level of protection and durability to paintwork than conventional waxes in their latest paintcare product, Shield. Proving the point, it rapidly beat all-comers to win a Best Wax & Polish category award.
Key to its success is Shield’s innovative formula, which forms a tough, molecular bond with the vehicle’s paint, and rapidly beads water. Unlike waxes – where even from the first wash, the protection deteriorates – washing reactivates Shield’s highly water-repellent surface, so a simple hose down after an off-road session is all that’s needed.
And application couldn’t be easier – a simple wipe on and wipe off – no waiting for it to dry, no lengthy buffing and no chance of dust sticking to the paint work.
And Shield can be applied in sunlight or low temperatures.
This same technological breakthrough was then applied to the development of a similar Armor All product for alloy wheels. The answer is Shield for Wheels, which has again become an award winner for its superior performance.
It brings Armor All’s patented innovative formula to alloy rims, where the build-up of grime – particularly in off-road conditions – and brake dust is a major problem.
As with Shield, application is easier and quicker than with a conventional wheel wax. Simply spray on and leave to dry for the ultimate protection. It lasts for up to four weeks, during which time a hose-down will restore the wheel to its original condition.
This has been followed by Shield for Glass – which provides class-leading water-repellency for windscreen and windows, to greatly improve visibility in the heaviest of downpours.
Most recently, Armor All completed the quartet with Shield Car Wash, developed expressly to complement the Shield paintcare product and most effectively remove both light and heavy mud and everyday grime from bodywork and wheels.
Armor All Shield is priced at £18.99, Shield for Wheels at £9.99, Shield for Glass £6.99, and Shield Car Wash £4.99. All four are available nationwide at good accessory outlets – together with further products in the extensive Armor All car care range. For further information, visit www.armorall.eu.
