Yes, the H20 Guard & Gloss is a synthetic sealant, so it provides protection for the vinyl.

It is not really a cleaner, so even though you saw some contamination get removed from the vinyl, there is likely still some contamination left in the vinyl. Next time, I recommend that you clean the vinyl first with Revive Hand Polish, then apply the HGG for appearance and protection.
That revive says it will gloss tho, which would defeat the purpose of protecting the matte. Am I wrong?

The Revive adds gloss to paint by removing oxidation or contamination, it does not have any wax or synthetics to add gloss. When used on matte vinyl, it does not really add gloss, but the finish will look different since it is cleaned. The HGG gives a more noticable difference on the matte vinyl.

You might also want to try using the new Matte Protectant on the vinyl. It is designed to add protection and no gloss at all.

Also, there is a sale about to start. The discount code CLEAN15 is up, but a couple new products have yet to be posted. They should be up soon.
