Sometimes exterior trim becomes so faded that constant
exposure from the sun can cause the trim to dry out and begin to lose
the color pigmentation in the plastic. In such cases, our VRT - Vinyl, Rubber, Trim dressing may not be able to fully bring back a deep, rich color to the plastics. This is where Adam's Black Trim Restorer will be necessary.
Adam's Black Trim Restorer is a temporary dye coloring to bring back a nice dark color to faded exterior trim pieces. Black Trim Restorer applies easily with a Microfiber Applicator Pad, or our Ceramic Coating Applicator, which works
great for tighter spots. You will want to make sure the trim is as
clean as possible before applying this product, so we would recommend
wiping it down thoroughly with Eco All Purpose Cleaner or Tire & Rubber Cleaner
first. Applying is simple and easy - pour a few drops onto the
applicator, and carefully spread it across the trim piece in a nice even
motion. Work the product in thoroughly and allow to dry for several
hours. Then take an Edgeless Utility Towel and wipe away any
excess residue afterward. In most cases there will not be any residue,
but if you apply too heavily, there may be some excess that needs to be
Black Trim Restorer is a game-changer for those plastics
that just don't seem to want to get perfect again, and it will last a
few months per application too! You're going to love this product, 110%
