VHT Vinyl Dye for vinyl and carpeting restores or changes the color of any vinyl upholstery, seats and trim, or the "short nap" carpeting found in today's cars, boats and watercraft. It is ideal for use on stiff or pliable vinyl, simulated leather or plastic. VHT Vinyl Dye is not a paint but a true dye, which permanently changes the color of the substrate. It is extremely resistant to cracking or fading. Careful preparation is essential and all traces of dirt, silicone products, vinyl and rubber protectants, oils and greases must be removed. Incomplete preparation will not produce a satisfactory result.
