Reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particles
Rapid colour change from clear to deep red
PH-ADJUSTED ACTIVE WHEEL CLEANER
Bilt Hamber Auto-Wheel is a non-acid, non-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner, and in most cases, no agitation is required.
In most cases steel and alloy wheels are either lacquered or painted. These coatings protect the metallic surface from corrosion and provide attractive finishes to automotive road wheels.
As vehicles brake, the dust generated from pads, discs and drums is at elevated temperatures. Amongst this hot cloud are thousands of hot metallic particles. These bombard the wheels finish and effectively embed themselves there.
Auto-Weel’s formulation reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particles, rendering it water soluble. The rapid removal of this microscopically rusted surface reduces the embedded particle size and releases the particles from the surface. Unlike acid based alloy wheel cleaners, this method is harmless to the wheel’s finish. The reaction can be observed by a rapid colour change from clear to deep red. After a simple hose, rinse down or pressure rinse, it leaves the wheel spotless. In severe cases, a wheel brush can be used to assist the process.
