effectively remove stubborn environmental contaminants, tar, and bugs for a
Regardless of the time and care
spent on maintaining your car’s factory-fresh finish, paint contaminants are
inevitable. Some contaminants, such as bugs, tar, and overspray are visible, but
pollutants from environmental fallout, rail and brake dust cannot be detected
with the naked eye. Evidence of this is rough, gritty spots when you run your
hands across the paint surface. There is no wax or paint sealant available today
that can possibly prevent this from happening. These airborne particles land on
your car’s surface, work their way through the clear coat, wax or sealant, and
make their home against the paint. Over time they abrade the paint, allow
oxidation to begin, and cause tiny rust spots in your paint. In order to
preserve your vehicle’s satiny-smooth finish, these enemies must be removed. No
amount of washing or polishing alone can do that. With Wolfgang Elastic Poly
Clay, these harmful particles are eliminated from paintwork quickly and
Claying is a recent technique,
designed (in the 1990s in Japan) to replace the old methods of machine
compounding or grinding away the contaminants. The old techniques, though
effective, also compromised the integrity of the clear coat and eventually the
paint. Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay acts as a magnet to foreign particles,
literally pulling the paint-fouling grime away from the surface of the paint.
You simply rub the clay across the surface, yielding a satiny-smooth,
unpolluted, and immaculate finish. This
is the optimum surface for
applying polish, wax or sealant. Without this step, you will trap these harmful
particles, possibly doing more damage than good.
Where do paint contaminants come
from? There are three major sources: rail dust, break dust and environmental
pollution—all unavoidable in our modern world. These contaminants affect all
finishes on your car and can cause serious damage when left untreated. Thanks to
the discovery of the effectiveness of clay as a contaminant magnet, this job is
Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay is a
non-abrasive product, safe for all aluminum, chrome, fiberglass, paint and
finishes. It loosens and lifts all manner of dirt, grime, and contaminants away
from the surface like magic
. You will be amazed at the amount of debris
collected by the clay with each pass. Elastic Poly Clay is unlike other clays in
formulation—the latest research and technology in car care has gone into this
product. This formula is superior at attracting and exfoliating dirt, allowing
the clay to glide across the surface with little to no effort, and keeping the
clay supple and pliable. It packs great cleaning power—enough to remove stubborn
tree sap, tar, acid rain and water spots without harsh chemicals or abrasive
particles. Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay will not dry out with age or decompose
with frequent use. Simply keep moist with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant, store in a
sealed bag between uses, and knead before each application to expose a clean
surface and activate the super polymers. The clay should last through seven to
Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay is
intended to be used in combination with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant. It is essential
to use a lubricant when claying so that the clay skims effortlessly across the
car. The super polymers in both the clay and the lubricant deliver an
ultra-slick surface. Begin by spraying a light mist of Wolfgang Elastic Poly
Lubricant on a small section of the car. Apply the clay, rubbing with moderate
pressure. You will feel the clay “grab” at foreign particles as it
decontaminates your paint. When the surface is free of pollutants, the clay will
slip along easily. After application, just use a clean, dry towel to wipe away
residue to reveal an ultra-smooth finish. No more irregular, bumpy surfaces to
contend with!Tech notes:
Car must be
clean and dry before using clay. To properly preserve your Wolfgang Poly Clay,
spray it with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant and store it in a sealed plastic bag.
Store clay at a moderate temperature. It will last through seven to ten
applications if cared for this way. It’s time for a new clay bar when
contaminant particles are visible or the clay, itself, doesn’t seem to absorb
debris any longer.

- Clay should only be used on a clean vehicle. Before each use knead the clay to expose a fresh, unused surface.
- Spray a small area of your car’s surface with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant.
- Using moderate pressure, pass clay across the paint until you don’t feel any more “grabbing.” The clay will move freely when all pollutants have been removed. Be sure to keep the car well lubed. Check clay often for any particles that might scratch the surface, and shave them off.
- When you’ve clayed the entire car, buff it clean with a dry towel to remove any clay residue. Rinse and dry your car.
- For the ultimate outcome, follow claying with Wolfgang Paintwork Polish Enhancer, then protect and seal in the shine with Deep Gloss Paint Sealant. This will yield an unbelievable showroom-quality finish.
