Creates a slick surface for the claying process
Clay product will easily slide over surface
Will not deteriorate any clay bar or synthetic type clay
Helps prevent micro marring on the vehicle surface
Extends the life of your standard clay bar
Easy Slide Clay Lubricant is essential when completing the clay bar process. Without using any lubrication between the clay and surface being cleaned, any clay product you are attempting to use will simply not glide across the surface. This product can help protect against micro marring, clay product deterioration and will help prepare the paint for further correction and protection steps you are completing.
Easy Slide also is a very unique type of clay lubricant. While Easy Slide does not contain any wax, Easy Slide will not only aid in the claying process, but will also help further provide a smooth surface to the area being decontaminated. This will further help speed up the compounding, polishing or sealing stage.
How to Use
After you prep wash (bug removal, tar removal, general washing stage) is complete, simply spray Easy Slide on the surface that needs to be decontaminated. Take your clay product of choice and begin to move the product back and forth on the vehicle surface. You can then dry the area with a microfiber towel and feel the surface. If you still feel grit, you will have to continue until the paintwork or other surface is smooth of contamination.
It is extremely important to NEVER use clay on tar or other surface contamination where the clay bar or product can be ruined. Usually the bottom few inches of the vehicle has heavy debris that is not removed during the wash stage. If this is the case, use Tar B Gone on these surfaces. After the tar, paint and other heavy road debris is removed, rinse off adequately with water. Now it is safe to proceed with claying this area of the vehicle.
Why is Clay so important?
Completing the claying process is extremely important. If there is contamination on the vehicle surface, any type of product you try to use will not adhere properly to the surface. Your are essentially applying a wax, sealant, ceramic coating, polish or another type of product over existing debris. These products will simply wash off the paint surface and no protection will be provided.
Buffing pads will tend to stick to the surface and the product you are using will not perform adequately. Most cars need to be clayed and trying to bypass this step will not allow you to achieve the best possible results.
We do not advise on letting the customer choose whether or not they have the clay process completed. If the vehicle needs any type of further paintwork treatment, allowing the customer to bypass the clay process will not allow any of the paintwork products to properly perform and will leave the customer unsatisfied with the end result. This result can be easily felt since contamination still exists and during the rain. The water will simply not sheet or bead adequately and display the areas where the product top coat simply did not adhere properly.
On new vehicles that have delicate paint, we suggest using Full Spectrum first prior to the clay process. Some vehicles have delicate paint and can easily become micro marred by even the lightest grade clay bar or clay product. Full Spectrum will allow for the most delicate contamination removal process without the fear of causing any self-induced defects into the paint. Full Spectrum can remove most of the contamination first and allow for very minor touch up areas using another type of clay product.
When your dealing with a full detail that includes the polishing stage, Full Spectrum will most likely not be needed. Any defects will be removed during the polishing or compound stage, but when only performing a sealant, wax or ceramic coating stage, it is advisable to proceed with the most delicate form of clay removal process.
New car sometimes can have more contamination that used cars. Depending on the transportation of the vehicle and where the vehicle is being offered for sale, many of these vehicles need extensive clay treatment. These steps are usually not completed by the onsite detailer and the customer is left to believe since their vehicle is new, detailing procedures are not needed.
Offering a new car detail package can be a great way to earn extra revenue in a short amount of time. Many customers who just spend thousands of dollars on a vehicle vehicle will not be hesitant in protecting their investment. It is important to educate the customer on why this procedure should be done to help them further understand that just because the vehicle is new, does not mean contamination is not present and protection is not needed.
