Today I detailed up the interior with Quick Interior Detailer. While working on it I was wondering out of all the products I own which were rated better as far as UV Protection.


For Vinyl Care I currently have:

Quik Interior Detailer (http://www.meguiars.com/?vinyl-rubber-plastic-protectants/Quik-Interior-Detailer)
Gold Class Vinyl/Rubber Protectant (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=Gold-Class-Vinyl/Rubber-Protectant&sku=G-106)
NXT Generation Tech Protectant (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=NXT-Generation%E2%84%A2-Tech-Protect&sku=G-129)
Natural Shine Vinyl & Rubber Protectant (http://www.meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=Natural-Shine-Vinyl-&-Rubber-Protectant&sku=G-41)

Anybody have any feedback to offer as to which of the Interior product are better rated as far as UV protection goes? Looks are not so much a big deal to me as I like the look of all of them.

I do know that Quik Interior Detailer has very little UV protection...

Here is a quote from Mike P.


This product is for light cleaning, but yes it does contain a light amount of UV protection to help protect interior surfaces as you use it. from this post (http://meguiarsonline.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=6786&highlight=UV+Interior+Detailer)

Well, I think the first thing is which work better inside or out. The Nxt Protectant does not seem to last long outside, so it isnt going to do much, as opposed to a Gold CLass Trim Detailer which would.

As far as interior, the only big thing is that the QID is not going to be a good protectant. It may has some UV protectants, but like the exterior QD, it cleans but doesnt really leave anything much behind.

The Nxt Tech Protectant, Natural Shine, so on and so forth are goign to be better for protection.

For leather, I think the Gold Class works great. The only other option would be the 2-step cleaner and moisturizer. Since 2-step products are better than 1 usualy, this may give slightly better protection.

But it all depends on how often they are applied. The Gold CLass C&C applied weekly/monthly is going to be better than a separete conditioner applied yearly. Same with dashboard stuff.

Yep, I saw mike's post, as well as your review. All I needed this time around was the slight cleaning but like I said I was just curious as to the UV factor of the rest of what I had in the arsenal. One of these days I am going to have to decide on a product and the UV factor will be an important point for me to consider.

Right now I have so much stuff on hand I figure It will take me a year or 2 before I get close to using it all up.

I tried the Tech Protect about 2 interior details ago. Roughly 2 months. I liked it alot. But, I keep trying stuff to see what I get outta each. Hard to tell a producs UV strengths in 1-2 applications. I try to detail my entire interior once a month. I do vacuum and clean the windows weekly though. I also use the leaf blower on my interior as well. I use that as it does a great job of pushing the dirt out of those tight places you can't get into with the vacumm cleaner. But I only do this prior to a cmplete interior detail as it does dust things up a bit.
