The new softer auto-clay compliments the existing firmer bar. Its ideally suited for claying intricate areas of modern panel folds and folding the bar to reveal clean clay is going to make the whole process quicker too.
While we would suggest that our original bar is still preferred for the super-smoothing of not previously clayed paint, or removing overspray, the soft bar is a perfect more routine compliment to it, allowing the more regular detailer to keep silky smooth paintwork with the absolute minimum of effort and fuss.
Both of the Bilt-Hamber auto-clay bars are formulated with finely divided low hardness minerals so that the abrasive effect is reduced when compared to other brands. Both still use just water as a lube (so you can now save money by not needing lube for 2 different consistencies of clay) and both will continue to rely on their shear effect to remove contamination rather than wearing away the embedded matter. Clay bars that rely on abrasion abrade paint too, and yes.. Soft Clay will be gentler.
Unlike many other clays on the market, Auto-clay is formulated to use normal tap water for lubrication. Some clay bars contain surfactants such as powdered detergents or soaps and long-term use of these can have adverse effects on paint systems – Auto-clay contains no surfactants, detergents, soaps or other soluble materials.
Grit contamination cannot be removed by washing, waxing or polishing. Cutting compounds remove a thin layer of paint but still leave the grit behind. Auto-clay is a superior synthetic clay bar which effortlessly lifts contamination from paint surfaces, leaving them super smooth. It also comes in a neat plastic box for storage between uses.
