RODA® Fix 5040 Dull combined with RODA® Car Dull 92/N are providing a smooth, continuous film - the perfect top coat layer for easy care features. But only the addition of carefully selected touch modifiers makes the top coat system work. RODA® Feel SR 5086; RODA® Feel S 5796; RODA® Feel S 768/N complement each other and provide excellent anti-soiling results when applied in three separate top coat layers.
