Cost Effective Clay.
Auto-Clay is a revolutionary clay made here in the UK. 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. Even volcanic ash fallout! 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.

How To Use:
Firstly, wash your car thoroughly using a non-abrasive shampoo such as Auto-Wash.
Spray water on to a small area of the paintwork and with a very light, fingertip pressure rub the bar back and forth. Ensure you keep the area well lubricated with the water so the clay bar glides across the surface. It is important not to use the clay bar on an un-lubricated surface.
At first you will be able to hear the particles being pulled away from the paint and you will feel the resistance of the contaminents. However this will rapidly disappear and the bar will glide smoothly over the surface. The clay bar will have turned a dirty red / brown colour as a result of absorbing the contaminents. When this happens rub your fingers over the surface. It should feel as smooth as glass to the touch. If not repeat the procedure until all the contamination is removed. Finally wipe the surface area over with a soft terrycloth or microfibre.
As the clay bar becomes soiled fold it over to keep the particles away from the paintwork. If the clay bar is dropped on the floor it should be thrown away as it dirt from the ground will adhere to it.
The clay bar will be sufficient to treat the paintwork 4 or 5 times. If you prefer divide the clay bar into pieces before starting work with it. Then if you do drop it you haven’t ruined the whole bar!
