Bilt Hamber Auto-Clay provides a method of removing harmful contamination from vehicle paint finishes, improving its durability and increasing the gloss level of subsequent waxes.
All paint finishes are subject to contamination from a variety of chemical, industrial and environmental pollutions, such as tree sap, bird droppings, salt, acid rain and metal flake particles. These pollutants cannot be removed by washing and polishing, they require a clay bar specifically designed to lift these particles away from the paintwork. If left untreated these contaminants bond with the paintwork and can cause harm as well as being unsightly. In addition, any vehicle being prepared for layers of wax or sealant should be clayed completely prior to wax application. This removes the contaminants and provides a clean, smooth surface for the wax to adhere effectively.
Bilt Hamber clay bars use ordinary tap water as a lubricating agent, rather than a quick detailer and contains no surfactants, such as powdered detergents or soaps, and is therefore extremely kind to your paintwork.
If the vehicle is heavily contaminated, has never been clay-barred before, or it’s hot summertime then use Regular. All clay bars become firmer when cold and softer when warm.
For paintwork that is in a reasonable condition, Medium will be preferred. The easier folding of the clay to expose a fresh working surface will be very beneficial.
Use Soft if the paint is in good condition, if you like to clay your vehicle frequently, or if the weather is cold.
