It's a clear liquid (so it's definitely not adding color) that works on vinyl/rubber and gets them darker/shinier but doesn't seem to last very long and needs to applied regularly (as the instructions state). The instructions state that it is activated by the sunlight so I guess UV protection is not included.

Also, "Black Again" SHOULDN'T be used if you're really close to repainting your exterior vinyl (oxidation/stains) as it add a type of oil coating to your trim.

I bought a bottle and have been using it regularly as a treament on my black trim and mostly my tires. It gives a nice sheen but if your material is oxidized badly it won't do anything. If your trim is in fairly good shape it seems to work. I tried it on my '97 Honda and it helped somewhat.

I will try Forever Black next time for treating the more oxidized areas.

I use this stuff on my car also and have been very satisfied. It is especially useful for getting rid of white marks from when you wax and hit the rubber by accident.

I like the mothers "Back To Black" it works quite nicely and lasts awhile.
