Tonneau cover- what to use on it restore it

whats a good product to use on my tonneau cover to restore it back to a new black finish. All the protectant stuff i have seen leaves a greasy surface which the dust sticks to. Whats every body else use and where can i get something good ?

Thanks to leonbray (F.F.) I rang John Smart of Reid $ Twiname (Auckland) on 09 6387517 and he gave me the name of an agent in my area, in my case an auto upholsterer, he said as it is a specialist product places like repco etc dont sell it, give him a call and he will let you know where in your area you can get it from, good luck.
