Bilt Hamber Auto clay bars are designed to effortlessly restore the factory smooth finish to paint finishes. They have received critical acclaim in the detailing industry for being the most durable, cost effective and well-designed clay-bars available today.
Auto Express Magazine, a giant in the car magazine world, has awarded auto-clay with their Best Clay Bar award every year for the last 5 years!!
Also they compared the clay-cloths to clay-bars in one recent test, where they concluded that bars were better, and that auto-clay was the pick of the bunch once again!
So which clay-bar do you need?
The choice between the three auto-clay bars will depend on several factors:
Regular – 200 gram bar If the vehicle is heavily contaminated, has never been clay-barred before, or it’s hot summertime then use Regular. All clay bars become firmer when cold and softer when warm.
Medium – 200 gram bar For paintwork that is in a reasonable condition, Medium will be preferred.
The easier folding of the clay to expose a fresh working surface will be very beneficial.
Soft – 200 gram bar– If paint is in good condition, if you like to clay your vehicle frequently or indeed if the weather is cold, then use Soft.
Why use a clay-bar?
Assess the degree of embedded metallic and brake dust debris that has entered the surface of your paint film by gently rubbing the paint with fingertips.
Feel for the grittiness that these damaging particles impart to paint films.
Using Bilt-Hamber Clay-Bars – regular, medium or soft – you will effortlessly remove particles, leaving the paint glass-smooth. Discolouring road film will also be gently lifted.
Claying will make a world of difference when lubricated with plenty of water and hardly any pressure. The bar glides like an ice hockey puck, and is pleasant and satisfying to use.
Not only does the paint feel and look a lot better once clayed, but the removal of these objects sticking to the surface allows the next stages of paint care to progress far more smoothly. As now cleansers, waxes and polishes glide across the surface far more easily.
It is highly recommended that before using a clay bar the paint is pre-treated with korrosol.
This high activity cleaner actively removes embedded metallic particles in a simply spray on rinse off action.
By removing these particles before the clay-bar is used, the bar will last longer and concentrate its action on the remaining contamination.

Directions For Use
Run your fingers over your freshly washed and dried paint work. Feel for a rough, gritty texture? This is caused by embedded particles. Bonnets are often the most contaminated.
If you can feel these particles atomise a fine mist of clean tap water over a 2-3 square feet area, using a plant mister or suitable spray.
Glide the auto-clay over the wet surface, properly lubricated clay will move effortlessly just like an ice hockey puck on ice.
You may well hear the contamination at first, this will quickly reduce as you move the bar back-and-forth. Keep the bar moving until the noise has gone
Check again with your finger tips to check that all the contamination was removed.
Once your car’s paint is glass smooth – and it really will be – use auto-balm, cleanser-polish, finis-wax, hydra-wax or micro-fine to seal the pores and provide a deep gloss shine.
