Surface Prep Tips


Reduce clean up. Synthetic clay won't leave behind residue around emblems or the edges of protective films, saving you time and effort.


Butterfingers accepted. Unlike traditional clay bars that must be discarded if they are dropped, our synthetic clay can be rinsed and put back in action.


Pretreat the tough stuff. If you have a heavily contaminated surface, use Iron & Fallout Remover to eliminate deeply embedded contaminants before moving to a mechanical surface prep product.
