      • Rubber polymer surface quickly removes bonded contaminants from the paintwork

      • Clean by thoroughly rinsing off the surface

      • Drop and use again, unlike traditional clay

      • Amount of uses dramatically depends on how the product is used and how much contamination bonds to the surface

       

       

      Having a clean surface is the most crucial part of your detailing process. Any contamination on the vehicle surface will not allow you to properly apply any wax, sealant, coating, or an All In One Product. Most people do not adequately prepare for the steps mentioned above and end with undesirable results.

      This medium-grade clay sponge is the perfect solution for lighter in color vehicles or another paintwork where marring is not the primary concern. Our sponge is perfect to use when medium contamination has bonded to the clear coat. You will use a machine for your topcoat process or apply a product by hand, such as a sealant, wax, or an All In One

      Unlike a traditional clay bar, this item can be dropped on the ground and rinsed off. A conventional clay bar will capture all the contamination inside the bar, leading to scratching on the vehicle surface. 

      Sometimes this bar is advertised to remove tar, road paint, and bugs. We believe that this should not be used for those purposes as the bar will quickly deteriorate and possibly end up contaminating other areas of the vehicle. Using a bug remover and a tar remover will produce better results in a shorter amount of time. 

      When conducting a complete exterior multi-stage buffing process, the clay product used, whether a traditional clay bar, a fine grade sponge, or a medium grade sponge, is not relevant. Any minor defects will be easily removed during these steps. 

      While it is always best to avoid inducing defects onto the vehicle surface, extremely light-cut clay sponges can sometimes take a very long time to complete contamination removal. This medium-grade clay sponge or a traditional clay bar will yield faster and superior results when a vehicle is heavily contaminated. 

      While it is impossible to say which bar is best suited for each vehicle without actually seeing and feeling the surface, we suggest the following:

       

      Fine Grade Sponge:  Works excellent when detailing a dark color vehicle or any other sensitive paintwork (certain vehicles have hard or soft paint) where minimal contamination is present.

      Medium Grade Clay: Works well at removing contamination faster but can lead to some marring on dark or sensitive paintwork. Great for detailing lighter color vehicles whether the surface will be buffed or just hand finessed since any marring will be almost invisible to the eye. It can be used on dark and sensitive vehicles when a machine-applied buffing product will be used or a hand glaze that will fill the surface.

      Traditional Clay Bars: It is excellent to use when speed is of concern and heavy contamination occurred. This type of clay treatment provides superior "cutting" to the sponge type of clay but cannot be dropped on the ground, and buffing will need to be conducted on your darker color or sensitive paintwork surfaces.
