The Importance of Clay Bars

The Importance of Clay Bars

Clay Bars are an important part in keeping your car in its best shape possible. They remove overspray, industrial fallout, and paint contamination. Paint contamination is tiny metal shavings from industrial fallout, rail dust, and brake dust. This affects all paint finishes and if left untreated, will cause serious damage. The paint’s surface would feel rough or gritty and will cause tiny rust spots. After washing and drying your vehicle, place your hand inside a plastic sandwich bag and lightly run your fingertips over the paint to test for paint contamination. The paint contamination has to be removed before applying a wax protectant. Polymer Clay Bars do not dry out with age, work great on all paint conditions, do not decompose with repeated applications, is clear coat safe, is easy to work with, is non-abrasive, and leaves almost no residue on the surface, making clean-up very easy. Scratches may occur if your vehicle is not freshly washed. Reduce the friction between the Clay Bar and the vehicle’s surface by using an approved Clay Bar Lubricant. Use a Microfiber towel to wipe off any residue. Then, polish it and apply a final coat of wax or paint sealant.
