What Is Paint Decontamination?

 

Over the years tar, glue, tree and bird and industrial fallout will clog the pores of your paint. This will feel rough to the touch and dull the lacquer. The paint decontamination stages is designed to pull out this dirt and leave the paint feeling smooth and even return the gloss. The negative side to this stage is marring.

What Is Marring?

 

Marring is only seen in bright light and looks like a wave pattern. Marring is the result of either machine polishing which has been unrefined or buffing too hard. In this scenario it is caused by using a clay bar.

What Is a Clay Bar?

 

A clay bar is literally a bar of clay. Specifically designed for the detailing world, detailers clay is used to rub on the paints surfaces and cleanse the pores of the paint. It grips the dirt and physically pulls it free from the paints surface. This action is aggressive and causes marring. It is essential in cleaning the paints surface prior to polishing which removes the marring caused by the clay bar.
