C4 utilizes a covalent or chemical bond to become an extension of the plastic molecule it's protecting. Not to be confused with much weaker electrostatic bonds used by, amongst others, ptfe based polymers, C4 swaps part of its molecular structure with the surface molecules of your car's trim.
What this means is that you now have a protective coating of unparalleled durability. Unlike many trim products on the market, C4 is an exceptionally thin (circa 30nm) optically clear film which means that it does not add an unattractive gloss film to the surface instead it restores all but the most faded trim to an as new condition. You can expect up to 2 years of durability from a single application.

Ensure that you have sufficient product for the job. If you have a vehicle that has a standard amount of trim that you need to coat such as a Porsche 996, BMW 5 series, then 15ml will be sufficient. If you have a vehicle that has larger areas of trim that need coatings such as a vehicle with black plastic bumpers or cars such as a Mini R53 that has black plastic trim on the sills and wheel arches, you should choose the 30ml bottle

Please note that C4 does not contain any black pigment so if your trim is exceptionally bleached, it may not fully restore its as new appearance. A good way to test if your trim will be recolored satisfactorily by the product is to wipe a damp microfibre cloth over the finish. If your trim color is temporarily restored by the wetness of the cloth then it is most likely that C4 will work to restore your trim
If coating heavily textured trim you need to ensure that all coating residue is fully removed from the deep crevices of your trim as if not it may turn into an unsightly white powdery residue in the crevices. If you are coating heavily textured trim it is very important you prepare the trim very well using the W2 as described above together with a medium brush. We also recommend using "long pile" microfibre cloths to better remove residue from the crevices of your trim
