Knowledge Is Power
Will it ruin the paintwork?
No, especially not after you have given your vehicle the initial treatment, Vulcanet will only clean and protect. If a surface is heavily soiled in sharp sediment, or mud from offroading, it will be quicker, safer, and more cost effective to rinse the vehicle and allow to dry first.
Is it safe on skin?
Yes, our formula has been dermatologically tested, but as all people are different, you should see what effect it has on you. If you use Vulcanet professionally or for long periods, you may wish to use gloves or barrier cream too prevent dry skin. Always wash hands after use.
Do I need to wash my vehicle first?
No, But, if it makes you happier, before you use Vulcanet for the first time, there’s nothing wrong with giving it a traditional clean and then once it’s dry, use Vulcanet, and you will have it’s full protective properties in place. You will build confidence with Vulcanet the more you use it and will see what it can really do. We’re not in the position of trying to force you to do something that doesn’t feel right, all we say is try it, and you will see the rest for yourself.
Do I really only need 1 cloth to do all the jobs of all my cleaning products?
Whats wrong with soap and water?
Nothing, it’s worked for years! BUT, times change, as does technology. And let’s face it, it’s not just soap and water is it? It’s degreaser, shampoo, silicone shine, metal polish, wax, leather cleaner, hosepipes, sponges, cleaning mittens etc etc. This is a true All-In-One, and it comes in one handy tub.
Why don’t you do small packs, like handy wipes come in?
Have you ever had one of those little packs? As soon as you take out one wipe, you make the resalable sticky lid wet, and it doesn’t close again… That’s why, they will dry out, and it will cost your pocket, plain and simple.When you buy a tub from us, we will give you a zip lock pouch for FREE. Then you can refill this as you please and Vulcanet won’t dent your pocket.
Will they dry out?
If you keep them in the tub, with the lid closed no! Not for years!! There’s a reservoir of solution in the bottom of the tub that prevents drying out from regular use, and guards against periods of leaving the lid off.
Why should I use Vulcanet over other waterless systems?
Why should I use Vulcanet over other waterless systems?
1- Our product cleans AND protects, and unlike others, Vulcanet is safe on Rubber, and can be used on Helmets and Leathers.
2- We use a 3 stage system, A cloth to trap dirt, A solution to do all the cleaning and a microfiber to polymerise the solution to create a protective barrier. The dirt trapped is thrown away with the cloth, and not wedged into the Microfibre.
3- Incredible value, you can clean over 30 Motorcycles with one tub, and over a dozen cars. Other solutions cannot offer such coverage.
4- Our history- we’ve been doing this since 2008 and have been constantly refining our product to what it is now, so you get the finished article, not a new product that still requires refinement.
5- The features- Vulcanet has over 30 uses, unmatched by any competitor.
6- Our product is made in France to strict European Standards. It is not Made in China, where the U.K distributor has little control over the chemicals used, where they come from, or who is putting them together.
7- We are an International Brand with a presence across Europe and the Middle East.
Why don’t I just use baby wipes or generic cleaning products?
Our wipes are specially constructed to trap dirt inside them. We call them “Dirt Magnets” as the tiny fibres and honeycomb construction pull the dirt particles into the soft cloth. These cloths are then soaked in a premium formula which is specifically designed to remove oil, brake dust, tough dirt, and bugs splats amongst many other things. This formula lifts dirt from the surface and encapsulates it to prevent scratching, and even micro swirls. The Microfibre then polymerises the solution to the surface leaving a protective coating that makes cleaning easier next time, and… repels dirt and water keeping your vehicle looking pristine for longer. Other cleaning products that are not purpose made, or not of the highest quality such as ours, are likely to lead to undesired results, or worse… damage!
How do I use Vulcanet?
Start with the wet cloths from within the tub, use them on the vehicle starting at the top, and working to the grubbier parts, leaving the worst bits to last. Even when the wipe is dirty it will still keep cleaning. As the cloth begins to dry, consider a fresh cloth to avoid pushing particles across the surface. For stubborn bugs and tar, wipe over first and allow to work briefly before rubbing with the wet cloth again to remove from the surface. Once you have been over the surface with the wet cloth, use the microfiber to buff the surface and activate the protective coat.
