You¡¯ve washed and dried your car and it feels very rough and sticky to the touch. All that pollution, industrial fallout, and brake dust stuck to the paint makes it impossible for dirt to wash off, and for fresh wax to stick to the surface directly. If the Light Duty and OG Clay Bars are not making the surface smooth, bust out the Medium Duty Clay Bar. The sticky gray clay bar grabs a hold of tougher contamination that is stuck harder to the exterior of your vehicle. Remove tree sap, brake dust, rail dust, paint overspray, pollution, and industrial fallout from any daily driver. If you live in a big city and your car is parked outside more than 12 hours a day, you probably have to use the Gray Medium Duty Clay Bar. Decontaminate any exterior surface that is shiny or clear with the Medium Clay Bar. Rub the medium clay bar with Luber synthetic clay bar lubricant over paintwork, glass, clear plastics on headlights and tail lights, and polished metals to make them feel smooth as glass again. Once they feel smooth to the touch, the surface is ready to be polished to remove swirls and scratches, and waxed to seal in a bright glossy shine. Use the Gray Medium Duty Clay bar for heavy stuck-on contamination that¡¯s ruining your car¡¯s shine.
Clay Luber works with every type of detailing clay. Whether you¡¯re using a traditional clay bar or a synthetic rubber clay bar substitute, the full-synthetic lubricant glides the medium gently over the surface to restore a smooth-as-glass feel. Every vehicle and situation is different. Sometimes all a detailer needs to remove any filth from the surface is a light duty clay bar, other times the contamination is embedded so deeply that a heavy duty clay bar is needed to pull the debris from the surface. Some detailers don¡¯t like working with small amounts of clay, and prefer the feel of a foam-backed Clay Block instead. Detailers working on boats, airplanes, or other large vehicles with wide flat parts use the Clay Eraser Disc on a dual action polisher to quickly remove contamination from the largest vehicles. No matter which method you go with, use Clay Luber to glide the decontaminating clay medium over the surface. The non-caustic formula lubricates the area without breaking down or dissolving clay bars or synthetic rubber compounds found in modern clay bar substitutes. Work over any exterior surface, including paintwork, glass, clear plastic, polished metal, and even carbon fiber without any fear of Clay Luber affecting automotive materials in any way. Spray the Clay Luber and rub away rough contamination for a smooth feel and best potential for superior polishing and waxing results.
It¡¯s time to use the clay bar when your paint does not feel smooth as glass. Any rough feeling is pollution and contamination stuck on the paint, and only the clay bar can remove it safely. Start by washing the vehicle: scrubbing loose dirt on the paintwork turns your clay bar into sandpaper, so avoid tons of swirls and scratches by starting with a clean surface. Use the proper lubricant to glide the clay by smoothly over the surface, and to maintain the integrity of the synthetic clay material. Attempting to clay with soap and water can be too rough on the paint and dissolve the clay bar, so stick to synthetic detail sprays and clay bar lubricants like Clay Luber for the best results. Break off just ¨÷ of the clay bar and shape it into a small patty. Use only a small piece because if you drop the clay bar on the ground, you have to throw it away! Once it falls on the ground, the clay bar picks up any small rocks or bits of abrasive dirt and grit, and it is now sandpaper for your paint. Mist a liberal coating of your preferred lubricant over the surface, and gently glide the clay bar to pick up embedded debris. Quickly scrub in short 12¡± passes to fully decontaminate the surface. The clay bar will stick at first, but the rough sounds and stickiness will subside into smooth action as the surface cleans up. Work one panel at a time, and wipe off lubricant residue and buff the panel dry to avoid spotting as you work. Re-knead the clay bar to expose a fresh surface after working 1-2 panels, or whenever the surface looks too dirty to use. Discard the used clay bar once no fresh surface is exposed with kneading. Use the clay bar on any exterior car part that is shiny or clear, including paintwork, glass, clear plastic, polished metals, carbon fiber, and more. Follow the clay bar service with machine polishing to remove any swirl and scratches, then seal the pores of the freshly-cleaned surface with a coat of sealant or wax for durable protection and enhanced shine.
