Clay bars are an engineered resin compound that can be synthetic or natural. They are made to be somewhat elastic in order to be durable and reusable. The elasticity of clay bars allows them to be folded, rolled, and flattened repeatedly as they are stretched over your car’s paintwork. Similar to putty or modelling clay, detailing clay bars can be moulded and shaped in a way that works best for you!

Detailing clay is designed to cut through and remove heavier detailing contaminants that aren’t removed in the initial wash stage. Things like paint overspray, brake dust, rust, tar spots and more get collected up into the clay for a smoother finish after washing. These contaminants, if left unremoved, pierce the paintwork to become lodged in to your paintwork and therefore stick to your vehicle ultimately damaging it over time. The only way to remove these stubborn contaminants would be to use a clay bar which either pulls the contaminant out of the paintwork or cuts them down to smoothen the surface of your paintwork.

Clay bars are designed to be used with a special lubricant or detailer spray. There act like a thin film of protection on the surface of your paintwork, preventing the clay from sticking and potentially damaging the bodywork. Clay lubes make the use of a clay bar a lot easier as they help the clay glide over the surface of the paintwork. Without the lubricant, the clay will simply stick.
