Proper pH balanced formula is safe to use on the most delicate wheels
Excellent paint contamination remover. Helps save time when you reach the clay bar process and allows contamination to be removed safely from all plastic, glass, metal, and painted surfaces
Color-changing formula allows you to quickly determine when Full Spectrum can be agitated if necessary or rinsed off
Using a fallout remover before the clay bar process can extend the life of the clay product
By using Full Spectrum then the clay treatment, this will allow for faster correction of the paint and extend the wax or sealant life
Significantly reduces the chance of additional holograms or defects during the clay treatment
Thick formula allows additional working time on the wheel to even premature runoff
How To Use Full Spectrum on Wheels:
Spray cleaner onto a cool wheel. Use a soft wheel brush to agitate the cleaner if necessary, then rinse. Doing this is the safest and most effective wheel cleaner to use on any wheel for any make or model vehicle. The color-changing formula will tell you that the wheel cleaner is now ready to be agitated and rinsed off. Full Spectrum will turn from green to red as it contacts and dissolves brake dust and other particles. Once the Full Spectrum turns completely red, your wheel is ready to be rinsed off.
Using Full Spectrum on paint, glass, plastic, and metal:
If an abundance of contamination (rail dust, overspray, construction material, etc.) is present on the clearcoat, a clay bar will remove the contaminants but MIGHT leave some very light defects. While this is on a very select few, make and model vehicles, many car enthusiasts and detailers classify paints as “hard” and “soft.”
Hard paints typically are challenging to perform paint correction. You may find yourself spending time trying to find the perfect buffing pad and product combination to obliterate the defects. Using a fallout remover such as Full Spectrum, you can significantly reduce your chances of inducing any additional defects onto the paint. If the vehicle does not have significant clearcoat contamination, you can use a very mild clay bar method without adding Greenway's Full Spectrum as a first step.
Full Spectrum will also save you time as it can be sprayed directly onto the paint and washed off during the wash process. This method will remove most of the contamination that sits on the top of the clearcoat in a short amount of time. This added step can significantly help any detailer work through the complicated correction process of these specific “hard” and soft clearcoats much faster.
What type of wheel is Full Spectrum best to be used? Full Spectrum is excellent to use on any wheel finish, but Full Spectrum's design quickly breaks down metallic particles on the wheel caused by automobile brakes. Again, particular make and model vehicles will produce much more brake dust and iron particles. Full Spectrum is also the safest wheel cleaner for those delicate wheels, or the wheel finish is unknown. Using this pH-balanced wheel cleaner that contains no acid will ensure that you will not ruin the rim's finish by using a too caustic product.
While many products are perfectly safe, some owners mistake using a corrosive wheel acid and quickly damage the wheel beyond repair in seconds. Full Spectrum takes several minutes actually to work through all the contamination but remains safe throughout the process. This extended working time allows you to scrub the wheel if needed thoroughly. While many wheels can be pressure washed or hosed off, some wheels might take slight agitation with a soft bristle brush to remove all contamination. Remember, while Full Spectrum is intense, it is very safe and not as potent as an acid-based wheel cleaner.
- The pH-balanced wheel cleaners are one of the most misunderstood and mismarketed products on the market. Use this product only as stated in the methods mentioned above.
- Full Spectrum is not a “no-touch” wheel cleaner as many companies market their similar product in that manner. A properly pH-balanced wheel cleaner is much less aggressive than a high pH or a low pH cleaner.
- Using this wheel cleaner to observe a color-changing effect is a waste of time and money.
- A great item to have in your “arsenal” of supplies when appropriately used.
- An upcharge should be generated, in our opinion, when using this type of product for a vehicle-specific component issue. A large amount of product could be used depending on the severity of the surface you are trying to decontaminate.
