Is Clay Wax the right choice?Not only do we get this question asked a lot (Is Clay Wax the right choice?) but generally speaking we have come to realize that many people simply don't know much about clay wax, its application and its benefits.
Here's breakdown: clay wax which often comes in the form of a clay bar, is often used to remove tiny debris and contaminants that have bonded to the paint or the clear coat. In LA's gruesome hot summers those contaminants can literally get baked into the paint or clear coat. Using clay wax can therefor be a very wise choice prior to regular waxing and polishing.
The claying process shears the contaminants off the clear coat and encapsulates the microscopic "craters" they leave behind to avoid any damage to the clear coat. The resulting finish by itself is an improvement but it is also a more ideal surface to further wax and polish.
Hopefully this information has helped answer whether clay wax is the right choice and to help you navigate the auto detailing options a little better. For any further or other auto detailing questions don't hesitate to contact Overland Carwash in Los Angeles.
