Rubber treatment

Looking for a dedicated rubber treatment for trim, as opposed to a tyre dressing.
Not found anything that really lasts or doesn't streak. Best I've found so far is probably Perl, anyone able to recommend anything better please?

When you say trim, do you mean the black textured plastic sort (which I don't think is usually rubber) or are you thinking of actual rubber eg door seals?

Swissvax seal feed the job. Expensive but 1 bottle will last a lifetime. Should last about 6 months on rubber inside and out.

Checkout Raceglaze they do a very good rubber treatment. I use it on classic cars.

Pearl is water based so it won't last that long, but still is a good dressing.

i2Detailing sell Tac system magic plus trim coating, and that's good on rubber seals (outside)

Autoglym vinvl and rubber care. make sure to follow the instructions on the bottle as many dont and blame the product rather than their user error.IT CAN BE USED ON INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR TRIM. 500ml bottle. Can be got in halfords or any good auto store. I have been using it for years and i cant fault it.
best of luck

+1 for SV unless it's an older classic car than go for Zymol seal darkens a bit more both products are great just pretty expensive with around 40pounds .
