Maxshine Magic Clay Bar 200 Gram
To Decontaminate and Remove below and above surface contaminants is an essential part in preparing your Vehicles Surfaces prior to Paint Correction or applying waxes and sealants.
The Surface you are preparing must be as raw as you can get it as there’s no point trying to polish debris into the paint. This is done a few ways but the Clay Bar Process is always required.
Generally to the naked eye most surface contaminants aren’t easily seen but if you carefully look into the surface and look really closely you will see hundreds, if not thousands of tiny particles have stuck to the surface reducing its shine and reflection. Put your hand inside a plastic bag and run your fingers across the paint to feel them!
Clay Bars can safely remove many above surface contaminants like Tiny Black Carbon Spots, Paint Over-spray from Industrial fallout, Bore Water marks, Brake Dust Deposits along with Tar and Sap.
Clay Bars will also very finely remove the soft tip peaks from the “Orange Peel” texture Affect making the surface appear flatter and shiner.
Any surface can be Clay Barred. Use on Paint, Glass, Plastic Trims, Wheels, Exhaust Tips and even Vinyl Wrapped Vehicles
The process to using a clay bar is really simple:
- Ensure Vehicle is thoroughly washed and dried
- Tear off a piece of Clay around the size of a Match Box and Knead that piece until it is warm and plyable into a flat palm sized piece.
- Using a Clay Lube or a Spray Bottle with a small amount of Car Shampoo and water, mist a small section and firmly place the Clay Bar flat against the surface.
- Quickly Glide the Clay Bar back and forth whilst adding more Lubricant or Water. This creates Friction and the Clay will “Grab” the contaminants and embed them into the Clay!.
- Inspect the Clay Bar after each section and knead/Fold the Clay Bar on itself to reveal a new section to use and then continue.
- Once all surfaces have been Clayed then you will see that the surfaces are Instantly Shinier and Contaminant Free already!.
- Store used Clay Separately until no new surfaces are revealed when kneaded.
- Store your Clay in Clean Water to prolong its use and prevent it from drying out.
Note: Refract are aware that many companies out there say that their clay bars don’t inflict Marring or any type of Clay marks.. They claim that no further polishing is required but the truth is this:
Every-time you touch, rub, wipe a surface mechanically then in some form or another that surface can and will be marked or finely scratched in some shape or form.
Refract always recommend that some form of Paint Correction is always conducted after Claying any painted surface, be it by Hand or Machine.
