A traditional clay bar in relation to car detailing, is a tool that has a Play-Doh or Blu-Tac like consistency that is used to “clay bar” car paint and other car trims in order to remove strongly bonded contamination such as tar deposits, iron fallout, and even paint overspray.
What Are Clay Products?
In recent years, clay bars have greatly evolved and now come in many new synthetic clay forms such as clay mitts, clay pads, clay cloths/towels, and even machine clay pads. As well as these various forms of automotive clay now available, car clay also comes in many different grades from ultra-fine, fine to medium as well as course clay bars and synthetic forms. So, whether you require just a light clay bar process to remove minimal contamination from your car’s paint or an aggressive clay bar to removed severe fallout, there is a clay bar treatment to suit your needs.
How and When Are Clay Bars Used?
Only after washing your vehicle and noticing that there are still some bonded particles on the paint and trims that aren’t coming off, is when you can use car clay to remove them. So, make sure the paint is firstly clean and be sure to work out of direct sunlight.
As car clay is extremely grippy by nature, you’ll need to use a clay bar lubricant which in many cases comes in a clay bar kit to aid the clay in freely moving over the car paint and trims as well as limit its aggression on the paint or surface. Simply spray the clay bar lubricant onto a half square meter of a panel, and then use your car clay with light pressure in short back and forth motions to collect/remove the bonded particles.
Benefits of Clay Bars and Clay Products:
- Easy and proven way to removed embedded contaminants
- Keeps your vehicle surface clean and pure
- Makes Cutting and Polishing more efficient and safer
- Synthetic Clay Products are reusable
- Enhances the bond between paint and protection products
Claying car paint and trims is generally a vital process prior to paint correction and/or paint protection to ensure the best possible result and outcome as in many cases it’s the safest quickest and most effective way to remove certain contamination that if left in place will compromise the finished detailing result.
