    Is ValuGuard ABC Still Available?

    I`m getting a new car by the end of May, (if all goes well at the factory). I was going to order the ABC, but the valuguard.net website is gone, replaced by some Microsoft international ad page.

    If they`re only available to the trade now, I`ll have to re-think my plan.

    Are there any viable alternatives?

    Thanks.

    Maybe they are reformulating their site. I would keep googling their site until it comes back up. If you have their phone number handy I would try calling them


    Otherwise you`re just going to have to rely on something like Iron X and clay.

    I sure hope they come back online.

    They (Automotive International, Inc.) are, indeed, in business. I called the company to find out what is going on and they are having "problems" with their server and website (valuguard.net) as of 9:45 AM today (Wed, 14th April, 2021), which is why you keep getting re-directed to a Microsoft International Server page.
    Call Pat (no last name given) at 513-309-0093 for product information if you need some in the mean time.

    Well, maybe not that outstanding. I emailed them back in 2016 about the Chrome Wheel Cleaner--my favorite acid (non-HF) wheel cleaner. It used to be available in spray bottles and gallons, but as of that time the smallest you could get was 5 gallons. There may be other products they have done this with; I searched and couldn`t find the thread I thought there was on this topic.

    Their site is back up but looks like you still can only order by phone.

    OK, order placed. The ABC is backordered and should be available in a few weeks.

    The website is back up.

    Thanks again for the info.

    ABC is used around the world by port operations, large volume vehicle dealers in many countries, etc. Millions of vehicles are treated with this system, so the companies focus is on those who purchase large volume on a regular basis.

    Ah, we gotta get more Autopians to use it. There`s a reason why so many ports use it: it works well!

    Chattend with Tim Brune, of Valugard today, they are putting together a new supply of the small M32 kit and will let me know when available.
    This will be their smallest offering as their normal customers buy in 5 gal and 55 gal drums.
    When pricing is known, keep in mind that a kit has the three products, the A and B will do 12 to 15 vehicles while the C will do over 100 washes. Once known, break down your cost per car and you will see it is much more economical versus what many are buying now.

    I`m confident whoever goes ahead and tries ABC will be pleased. It sure saved me from claying.
