Gabriel Romeu referenced the "303 Products" website:

Many Thanks for the tip, Gabriel. Looks very interesting!

Here is a quote about one of their products:

"303 Aerospace Protectant keeps UV-sensitive materials “like new⠀ year after year. Use on Rubber: Tires, neoprene, latex, door and trunk seals, weather-stripping, EPDM rubber roofs, CV boots, waders, wet suits. Vinyl: C onvertible tops (and the clear vinyl windows), isinglass, marine seating, tonneau covers, car bras, covers, spa covers, pool covers. Inflatable boats: Hypalo n, PVC and urethane blends. Gelcoat fiberglass: Boats, RV’s, snowmobiles, jet ski’ s. Plastics/acrylics/polycarbonates: Lexan® and acrylic panels/windows/windshields/covers.

Pool & Patio: Plastic furniture (not fabric), pool inflatables, slides, covers. Sailcloth: Dacron® and monofilm."

I wonder what exactly they mean by " 'nude' bike frames..." ? Very interesting.

Above all, perhaps this would also be a suitable protectant for brake lever

hoods... or perhaps even hoping for such a product is just another quest fo r the Holy Grail of bike component preservatives.
