Decontamination Detail - Detailing Clay and Paint Cleaners
The clay bar process alone cannot fully decontaminate a vehicle’s exterior. Although the clay bar removes “above surface” bonded contamination, “below surface” contamination is left behind. The only way to remove this contamination is through chemical paint cleaners and Iron removers.
After removing so much contamination with the clay bar it is shocking to see how much more remains. An abrasive free paint cleaner is paired with a light polishing pad to remove the remaining contamination. This two step process allows for the final layer of paint protection (sealant, wax) to properly adhere to the vehicle’s paint.
For cars that are not frequently decontaminated, rust blooms may be a problem especially on lighter paint colors. If iron particles remain on a vehicle’s paint for an extended period of time they will etch their way deeper below the surface. The only way to remove these unsightly blemishes is to use a product such as Iron X.
Paintwork is chemically and mechanically cleansed removing embedded contamination (Brake dust, bird droppings, water spots, etc) leaving a smooth as glass finish. The decontamination process allows for the final layer of carnauba wax or paint sealant to better adhere to vehicle surfaces increasing product longevity.
- A protection detail is performed.
- Paint and glass are clayed, removing embedded contaminants. (Wheels can also be clayed upon request)
- Paint is chemically cleansed using an abrasive free paint cleaner.
