OPTiX Medium Clay Bar

Clay bars are an essential item for the decontamination process. The purpose of a clay bar is to release as well as pickup embedded soil, dirt, iron, paint overspray and more from the paint not only leaving you with a smooth surface but a clean one at that to prepare for polishing, waxing and/or coating. The OPTiX Medium Clay Bar is the moderate-range clay bar OPTiX has to offer and will be sufficient on moderate surfaces.

What To Use It For:

Removing Contaminants

OPTiX Medium Clay Bar is designed to remove contaminants embedded in the paint on moderate surfaces that do not require heavy duty claying. The medium clay bar is the ideal choice for cars do not have a rough surface, have been clayed recently, are garaged most of their life and are not exposed to the elements like daily-driven vehicles.

 

Preparing The Paint

Clay bars are an important step when it comes to preparing the surface; through a process called decontamination. Decontamination can involve a few things, such as degreasing the entire car, spraying iron fallout removers on the paint and then clay barring. The process helps remove any contaminants in the paint, making it extra smooth and ultimately preparing a good surface to work with ready for a polish, wax or coating.

  2. Prepare a lubricant, a dedicated clay lube, shampoo, soap.
  3. Lubricate the surface you wish to work on.
