Iron Filling Removal with Iron X (Video + Pictures)

Hi,

A friend of mine called me some time ago, saying that his bumpers where getting a bit rusty, which was a bit awkward as they are made of plastic


Beforehand I had promised him to correct the paint and now it was filled with iron fillings from the snow ploughs during the winter months, so I had to remove the metal particles somehow. I've used acidic decontamination systems before, but as I actually like automotive paints I have been looking for something safer.

In most cases, claying will remove the filling itself but I wont remove the area which has been coloured by the iron particle.

So I did a small video and shot a few pictures of Iron X in use. Remember to watch the whole thing.

Video is here:

Just a few after the Paintwork Correction:







I may do a full writeup some day..


Kind Regards,

Ebbe Jørgensen

Ive seen this product a few weeks ago and am wondering...does this repace the claying process? Obviously i realise it wouldnt remove sap but i find my prewash does a good job on the Honey Dew i get on the car this time of year.
Thanks, Phil

I would always clay. The surface felt quite clean after the application, but the clay was still showing that a few contaminants were left behind.

Great results. I now wonder if my dark blue car has such contamination too.
