Super VRT on Weathertech Floor Mats?

Question

So I just pulled out my WeatherTech floor mats and gave them a good scrubbing using a combination of APC and Tire and Rubber Cleaner. 

 

They look a lot better than they did, but my question is could I slap on a coat of Super VRT to give them a little bit nicer looking finish? Or would that result in a slippery finish that I might not want for a floor mat

TRC works well with just a dry towel,  no water rinsing as well.

 

 I also do ID.

 

AND 

 

Dan the man, likes to ceramic coat his mats.  This is my future plan, as I have Boosted mine, just not coated yet.

One word of advice, don't use Tire Shine.  They may look good, but will be very slippery, the same goes for running board rubber mats.   No need to ask me how I know..., but I call say that with enough scrubbing and APC it will come off.

I have used SVRT on my WT floor mats and they were pretty slick, but they looked great so I didn't mind them being slick.

How does the ceramic make out? Slippery??

 

Also, I have heard there are still ways to get the mat cleaner that adams made... how would one get that through? I would love to stock up on it! 90% of my customer cars have rubber mats!

The cleaner can be picked up from most of the distributors.  The list of distributors is under Store Locator on the products site, you can also stop by your local Chevy dealer since it is product the larger dealers will have on hand.  Yes, they'll even sell the products to a Ford owner, but they might try to convince you to get a new truck while you are there.

No, it won't be slippery. 

 

As @RayS said, contact a local distributor if you want the mat cleaner. Here's the link https://adamspolishes.myshopify.com/apps/store-locator/ In my experience, I like APC or TRC the same as the Mat Cleaner on mine.

+1. I've found all three products to work similarly on both Husky and WeatherTech mats.

I tried something new for the first time. I used the in and out spray to give my worn out weather techs a better look and they turned out looking almost brand new. Not too slippery. Let them air dry outside the vehicle for about two hours tho. It actually worked super good. U would be surprised!

My go-to routine for Weathertech mats is Tire & Rubber Cleaner followed up by Ceramic Spray Coating. Give it a shot. It will make them much easier to clean up, and darkens them up a slight amount too!

Dan, have you noticed the Ceramic Spray Coating leaving the chemically smell?

 

ive been wanting to do this to some weather tech mats in a brand new vehicle, but was afraid it would leave the ceramic spray coating smell.

The answer is DON'T BUY WeatherTech!!!

 

I only buy 3D MAXpider Kagu Rubber Floor Mats. I went through all of these same issues before they started selling their cleaner. I found these mats and have never looked back.
