What’s special about Gtechniq I1 Smart Fabric?
Unlike regular coatings the nano particles of I1 actually coat the individual fibres of the fabric thereby leaving the “breathability” and feel of the fabric unaffected. The former means that stale air can still escape but at the same time repelling any water or oil based liquids. Being solvent based ensures a much deeper penetration of the active ingredient giving an I1 treated surface much better durability and overall performance. Typically an I1 treated surface will outlast conventional water repellent coatings by a factor of approximately x5 with durability on soft-tops for example, lasting as much as three years.
