How do you know if you need to use a clay bar?

        After thoroughly hand washing your car, feel the surface of your car's paint. Do you feel bumps and rough spots? These bumps are contaminants attacking the finish of your car. Removing these surface contaminants (road tar, acid rain spots, bug residue, paint over-spray, brake pad dust, hard water spots, etc.) will improve both the look and health of your car's paint. By the way, you can magnify your sense of touch by inserting your fingertips into a sandwich bag or a piece of cellophane

No matter how well you hand-wash your car, many of the contaminants that have worked their way into your car's paint finish will remain. Have you ever looked at your foam wax applicator pad after applying a coat of wax? What do you think that black stuff is? It's dirt, and you're waxing over it, sealing it in.Every car finish shares a common enemy: pollution. 

 It relentlessly pursues your car from the second it leaves the factory until your car meets its ultimate demise.  It's in the air we breathe, it's on the roads we drive, and it attaches to your car's paint, where it bonds and begins a process of oxidation.



When contaminants get a solid grip on your car's paint, washing alone may not be enough to remove them.  Pre-wax cleaners also may not be able to exfoliate large particles.  In this case, you have two choices: use a polishing compound, which removes a lot of paint material, or use a clay bar.  Clay isn't a polish or a compound, it is a surface preparation bar that smoothes the paint and exfoliates contaminants.

One of the many reasons for using clay is the removal of brake dust.  Brake dust contamination, which attaches to painted rear bumpers and adjoining surfaces, is a metallic surface contaminant that can be removed safely and effectively by using clay.

Clay is also very effective on paint over-spray. If the over-spray is particularly heavy, our professional N&R Cleaning worker can help you with this.

What we do?

  • Detailing clay works by hydroplaning (floating) over the surface, cleaning on a thin layer of clay lubricant.
  • When the clay (polish) encounters surface contamination, it abrasively grinds it away.
  • Detailing clay shears off any foreign material above the level surface of the paint.


How we work?
Using clay is not easy, but we must follow the instructions. Use clay incorrectly and you will create a mess or scuff the surface of your paint.

Before we using detailing clay, we fist must thoroughly clean and dry your car to remove any loose dirt.  Direct sunlight should not fall on your car's surface, and it's best if the work area is relatively cool to prevent rapid evaporation of the clay lubricant. Following:
·         Be sure to use plenty of clay lubricant. 
·         Retail clay kits come packaged with a proper spray lubricant. 
·         Keep the surface you're working on wet. 
·         Work on a small area at a time.
To use the clay bar, we spray a lubricant on a small area of your car and rub the clay back and forth with light to medium pressure.
