Automotive Care Products Limited in collaboration with Automotive International of America has launched ValuGard range of products into the Nigerian market.
The Valugard products which were unveiled at Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Ikeja, recently by Igwe XI of Orlu, Imo State, His Majesty Dr. Patrick Chinedu Acholonu, include Fabric Protector, Leather and Vinyl Protector, PF Paint Sealant, PF Undercoating and PF Rust Preventive among others.
Presenting the products to selected players in the auto industry, the Technical Director of Automotive International Incorporated, Mr. Timothy Bruce, noted that all Valugard products are already approved by major automobile manufacturers across the globe.
He said that products from Automotive International are designed to exceed the standards of major carmakers worldwide. He said: “Automotive international products are endorsed by the GM, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, Hyundai, Mazda-Nissan, Renault, Mitsubishi, Saab, Satun and others.
According to Mr. Bruce, Valugard Protective Coating is designed to protect the original colour of vehicles from harmful detergents often used in washing by many car-wash outfits.
He said the Frabric Protector is a resin-based formula which thoroughly encases every fiber and thread of a vehicle’s fabric preventing it from absorbing spills, while Leather and Vinyl Protector beautifies leather interior surfaces and protects it against permanent stains.
“Unlike dimenthal and polydimenthal siloxane based products, Valugard Leather and Vinyl protector is a specially formulated acrylic coating that lasts for years and does not evaporate from the treated surface” he added.
He noted that the new Generation 7 Paint Sealant formula also features an amino functional polymer-copolymer resin which provides outstanding protection against fading, chalking and oxidation while providing a deep, long-lasting high gloss shine as durable as it is attractive.
According the presentation, Valugard undercoating is a flexible micro wax-based coating designed to insulate, quiete protect the underbody from corrosion.
