Included in this kit:
(1) Gyeon Q2M Clay Lube
(1) Medium Grade Clay Bar
Q²M ClayLube is totally neutral and developed to work with any type and manufacture of clay bars. It does not affect the clay and remains safe for the most delicate bars. At the same time it does not cause any staining on the paint.
EXTREMELY SLICK AND CONCENTRATED
Q²M ClayLube has extreme slickness which reduces friction and prevents the clay from ‘grabbing’ and marring the surface, instead the clay will slip over it to reveal smooth paint. Ideally used with Q²M Clay for best results, but it can be used with any clay bars, cloths or discs to lubricate. Q²M ClayLube can be diluted down as far as a 1:10 ratio, which offers great economy, without impacting on its high performance and still allowing good lubrication for the clay to do its job.
The clay bar offers an option to fix common paint problems; saving time, money and possible further damage. For example, in paint over spray removal, one common traditional method was the use of the high-speed buffer and cutting compounds. The downside to this was obvious, especially on newer paint. With some of the older remedies, the detail technician would actually create more damage than what was already there. With the advent of body clay, paint over spray can now be removed quickly and safely. The same with railhead dust contamination. On lighter colored cars, especially white cars, railhead dust would show up as numerous rust spots. They would also leave the painted surface rough to the touch. Railhead dust is basically small heated iron particles throw up by trains, settling on automotive paint during transport. Previously, a solution of acid based chemicals was used to bathe the car and remove what people in the industry called “industrial fallout”. Needless to say, this procedure had all kinds of negative aspects to it and the clay bar simply helped put an end to the use of acid based cleaners for removing the rust spots. Furthermore, dealers started wrapping the top surfaces of their cars prior to shipment with a plastic material; this assisted greatly in protecting the painted surfaces.
In cases of paint over spray, industrial fallout (railhead dust), brake dust contamination, the method of removal with the clay bar is the same. The technician will “knead” the clay out to form a flat piece and rub the affected paint area with it. But first, water or better yet a water based lubricant designed to help the clay slide on the paint surface is applied. Usually applied by a bottle with a trigger sprayer, the lubricant is sprayed on followed by the clay. The technician doesn’t have to rub hard, the clay works with minimal pressure and once it gets loaded up with contaminants, you simply re-knead it and use it over and over.
