We wanted to provide consumers and car fanatics alike with a product that is perfect for them both. “303 Touchless Sealant’s ease of use lends itself to the home detailer looking for a safe quick way to protect their car, and to the enthusiast or detailer looking for cutting edge technology to boost their already immaculate ride.” Trico Products says the quick and easy-to-use spray and rinse product provides superior waterbeading protection and a deep, long-lasting, glossy shine. It also prevents UV damage and will help to protect against light scratches.
