How clay barring can make a difference in your car's appearance.
The exterior of a vehicle undertakes all the abuse of our roads and environment. Our vehicle’s paint has pores like our skin that can absorb particles, and sometimes they get clogged. If you feel your car after a car wash you may notice that there is still a gritty texture to the surface. That is because even if you washed your car every day, you would never be able to get rid of the dirt and grime that is hiding inside your paint. If you are looking for something new to help keep your car not only looking good, but also obtain a smooth finish, then clay barring may be worth giving a chance.
What is clay barring? Auto Detailers use a clay to lift and remove contaminants that are embedded in the car’s paint. When most people think of car detailing, they think of the long and tedious process of compounding, polishing, and waxing. But you can clay bar your car in a short amount of time and as often as you wish or even use it in preparation for polishing or waxing. By adding clay barring to your car washing method, you can save the look and longevity of your paint and keep your car looking like new.
