(2) Traditional Clay Bars
Have a freshly washed car that doesn't feel silky smooth to the touch? The Proje' Traditional Clay Bar gently and effectively decontaminates the paint, freeing it from oxidation, over spray and industrial fall out, creating that silky-smooth surface you were hoping for. After your vehicle's paint is free from contaminants, properly apply waxes, sealants and coatings directly to the paintwork, giving maximum protection and longevity. They say not to mess with a classic, and we haven’t here. The Traditional Clay Bar is everything you expect from a clay bar; it’s sticky, pliable and extremely effective.
The key to the perfect clay bar is not to go too heavy-duty. A good clay bar like the Proje’ Traditional Clay Bar will remove all roughness and dirt extremely easily with just a couple of passes, leaving your paintwork feel as smooth as crystal. Contaminants such as debris, dirt, brake dust and droppings embed themselves in your paintwork over time, which can eventually lead to oxidization issues – the dreaded rust. These contaminants can also rub off in to your pads, rendering them far less effective and hitting you in the pocket when you need to replace them more often. A clay bar is the perfect way to remove absolutely all these contaminants, leaving a perfectly smooth surface to work on for your future processes. Think of it like an exfoliator, but for your car. All the dirt that has collected on your bodywork is literally sucked out by a clay bar, and ours also has some flexibility so that it stays flat against your car even when claying over a curve.
Remember to check if your car needs claying using our simple plastic bag technique; just put your hand inside and rub it over the bodywork. If you can feel any roughness, it’s time to clay. Make sure this is something you have time to commit to, and use plenty of lube to keep the surface from drying and the clay bar from sticking. Then scrub the bar over the lubricated area – not too much of an area at a time. You might need two or even three passes, but when the bar moves smoothly and with ease across the surface, you know that all the contaminants have been removed and you are ready to move on to the next surface section.
