The Established Method
It’s not secret these days that the claying process produces the smoothest possible finish on your paintwork; polish simply can’t compete! General vehicle use causes contamination from brake dust, general pollution, sprays, debris and just the quality of the air around you. Often, metal contaminants cause tiny chips in your paintwork meaning that dirt can penetrate below the surface, which can lead to nasty oxidation and rust issues in the long-term. Claying is sometimes the only way to remove deep-set contamination. The light friction cause by rubbing the clay across your bodywork drags all the deep dirt out and keeps it out as you move the bar across your paintwork. It’s an absolute must before polishing and applying wax – if you wax a vehicle that hasn’t had all dirt removed in the most effective way possible, then the wax will come under attack from beneath, meaning that it doesn’t last as long and can create a bobble that ruins your smooth coat. Claying is the process that solves these potential issues and it isn’t even difficult to do.
The Importance of Lubrication
When using a clay bar, lubrication is required so that friction is reduced and the clay bar doesn’t stick to and remove the paintwork. This will keep your bodywork completely safe from any scratching. Throwback Clay Lube is designed for maximum lubricity, so your clay bar or mitt will move easily across your paintwork without any risk of scratching. What’s more, the versatility of our lube means that you can use all kinds of clay bar, from soft to hard, on your bodywork with no problems. You can even apply our Clay Lube to your glass surfaces to create an unbelievably shiny and smooth effect all over your vehicle’s exterior.
How to Use
Before Use – To Clay or Not to Clay? Expert Tip!
If you’re going to apply a professional wax to your car, then it’s always a good time to clay your paintwork. But you might be surprised by how badly it needs it even if you think you’ve given it a thorough clean and polish. Try this expert tip to see if you really need to clay: put a thin plastic bag like a sandwich bag over your hand and rub the paintwork gently with your fingertips. You should only feel complete smoothness, but if there’s any grit or cling then you have a contamination issue and it’s time to clay without delay!
Always work out of direct sunlight. Moving one panel at a time, saturate with Throwback Clay Lube. It’s impossible to over-lubricate, and this is the key step to the process. A lack of lubrication could cause your clay bar to stick to the paintwork.
Use your clay bar, mitt or disc to gently glide the clay across the surface. You don’t need to use force – the clay is powerful enough. Move in a horizontal direction for the most effective coverage. When you first move your bar, mitt or disc across the paintwork, it will most likely cling a bit. Don’t panic – this is the clay bar pulling all the dirt out from the paintwork; it means it’s doing its job.
As you apply the clay bar with your working hand, keep the Throwback Clay Lube in your other hand and constantly reapply so that the surface is fully saturated.
As you move back across the same surface, you’ll find that the clay bar moves more easily. This means that you have removed all the debris and contamination. Once the bar slides across with ease, this area of your paintwork is done and you can move to the next part, repeating the process. It’s important to exercise patience – you don’t want to rush and fail to lubricate the area enough.
