An auto clay bar treatment is required to provide a long lasting coat of wax/sealant. Clay bar is an engineered resin compound used to remove contaminants from the surface of the vehicle’s paint, glass, fiberglass and metal. Detailing clay can be natural or synthetic, though most manufacturers utilize synthetic clay.
You may not be able to see why you need it but a simple test can determine if you do. Wash and dry your car, put a plastic lunch bag over your hand lightly rub your hands across it, if it feels gritty or rough your can vehicle can benefit from it.
When is this needed? The surface of your vehicle faces assaults from the environment every time it’s out in the weather. Each road trip brings new insults from roadway debris, exhaust films, and airborne pollution. They will splash, mar, and embed themselves in that beautiful paint job you’ve labored over. This can also happen to stationary vehicles.
What Does detailing clay remove? Your vehicle is under constant assault from airborne pollutants. Brake dust, industrial fallout, acid rain deposits and rail dust all can adhere to your vehicle. These contaminants often contain metal particulates, which accounts for the ease with which they penetrate the clear coat to attack the paint below. These contaminants then oxidize, and they allow rust to spread beneath the clear coat. Tiny orange spots today, total paint system failure tomorrow! Detailing clay removes these contaminants in order to keep the paint healthy and vibrant.
Detailing Clay also removes stubborn sap, tar, and bug remains. Detailing clay works wonder on glass as well. Try some the next time you’re washing your windows. You’ll be amazed at the results!
