What is Clay Bar?
A clay bar is a synthetic engineered resin compound designed to remove contamination from your vehicles surface to provide a contamination free, smooth surface to apply protection to. We can use the clay bar on your car’s paint, glass, fiberglass, and metal.
These contamination could be anything like tree sap, bird droppings, dirt, dust, oil, break dust and road tar. A clay bar is very similar to the clay I’m sure we all played with when we were children.
An automotive clay bar can withstand the harsh contamination from the surface whilst keeping that contamination within suspension and away from the vehicles surface where it could cause damage.
How do Clay Bar works?
Automotive clay will be gently moved across the surface of a vehicle and lift off any contamination due to the tacky surface of the clay. These small particles of contamination will then be suspended within the clay bar itself and not deposited back on the surface.
When used in the correct manner a clay bar is 100% safe and will not cause any damage to the surface of which it is being used on. Contrast to popular belief a clay car is also non-abrasive and will not remove any level of paintwork from the surface.
How often to Clay Bar?
We would suggest that claying could be carried out every 6 months depending on the amount a vehicle is uses. Clay Bar will compromise any coating applied to the surface, so once you have carried out a Clay Bar service you will also need to re-apply any wax protection that was there before. This would be taken care of in our Deluxe and Detail service package.
Your vehicles surface is covered with debris on a daily basis, every time you drive the vehicle it faces assault from the environment. Every trip brings different problems – general debris, airborne pollution and much more. If you lightly rub your fingertips over the surface of the bonnet. If you can feel a gritty or rough texture then there is contamination present on your vehicle. That means it’s time to give us a call.
