Race Glaze IronPRO Deironiser & Wheel Cleaner (5L)
In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

Our Price: £69.00 (inc VAT)
5 Litres of Race Glaze IronPRO - an amazing, active deironising fallout remover and safe wheel cleaner. Supplied with empty 500ml spray bottle. It has a brilliant capacity to react with bonded on brake dust particles and prove it is working by turning them purple as it dissolves them. This leaves remarkably clean wheels, without black brake dust stains. It has been independently tested and considered safe on most types of wheels. The technical process is as follows: high temperatures generated by wheels bond iron-rich brake dust particles and road debris to wheels and adjacent bodywork. IronPROs’ ph neutral formulation contains chemicals which reduce the sintered iron into a purple coloured water soluble solution which is easily washed off with a hose or pressure washer. The end result is very clean and smooth wheels. On bodywork its worth spraying to see if metal particles are also present before claying as they are extremely sharp and may cause marring. They are most likely to be present if your vehicle is parked next to a major road or railway line, especially stations. Note that IronPRO may be diluted 2:1 with water. It is well known that the key chemical ingredient suffers from a fairly awful aroma which makes some similar products extremely noxious, but we have managed to largely mask that with a pleasant fruit smell.

Its perfect too for dissolving glue residues from old stickers and decals. Its safe on all paintwork and plastics, though test on a small area first on fresh paint and bare plastics. It should take only 2-5 minutes to work - simply spray on a fine mist and wipe off with a soft cotton or microfibre cloth. This product is also biodegradable.

Nano Series Home Application Sealant Kit
In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

Our Price: £29.99 (inc VAT)
Anyone who has bought a new car over the last few years will have been recommended a ‘never have to polish your car again’ coating, at typically £250 to over £400 depending on how prestigious the marque. Ripoff No. 1 – the sheer cost of this. No wonder many customers decline and call us for advice about more traditional waxes. Then there’s rip-off No.2 – the dealer will apply the same product to a BMW or a Ford of equal size but charge you more where they perceive you have deeper pockets. They offer this product as margins on new cars are so thin – the same reason you are offered ‘Gap Protection’ insurance and optional extras. Simply, they have to make some money somewhere. Rip Off No.3 is that the ‘warranty’ is only backed if you use their supplied shampoo, which you will inevitably run out of and if you can prove you have washed it regularly using it. Which of course you can’t, hence its a worthless warranty. So what is this miracle coating ? Well, most dealerships buy from the same small number of manufacturers, one of whom produces a product we have been testing for 3 years. Its undoubtedly all very clever chemistry, and the best thing about it is, anyone can apply it. No special training or equipment is required. And if you’re doing it yourself, you’ll take a lot more care than the ‘paid by the hour ‘ valeters round the back who sometimes do this in 20 minutes. And the really good news ? We can supply you with DEALERSHIP QUALITY product complete with both steps of the system, with applicator pads and microfibre polishing cloths, for as little as £29.99. We’ll not kid you that you’ll never have to polish your car again, as this sealant does have a life of 2-3 years, but if you use a good, pH neutral shampoo and wash the car regularly yourself at home, it will last that long. Use commercial car washes or ‘hand wash for £5’ places who use truck washing degreasers and it won’t. But at least you know. More about this – and please excuse the science The first step is to cleanse the cars paintwork with the Primer. No real effort required, but wipe on, massage over the bodywork and buff off when it starts to haze. You will need approx 50ml for a Corsa-sized car. This product cures and bonds to the paintwork creating a layer than is receptive to the nano-particles (i.e. molecular sized) of the Gloss TopCoat Sealant. We’ve adopted this naming convention as any DIYer will understand it. Once that’s done, and allow an hour or so for a small car, you will need to apply the actual Sealant. Application and usage is exactly the same, although you can use a polishing machine to do it too but its not vital. Allow to dry. That’s it. Your car will now resist acid rain, bird mess, tree sap, and shrug off dirt. This makes washing incredibly easy as dirt cannot bond to the porous lacquer but must try to stick to this extremely hard new coating. Maintenance We always recommend using anything except a brush or ordinary carwash sponge, and drying with either a really good, clean chamois or microfibre drying towel. For shampoo, you can use our ‘made for purpose’ Cherry Sealant Maintenance Shampoo, which will typically make up 25 wash buckets worth, or any good shampoo. A few extra points: You can use it on any age of car If you clay bar the paintwork first you won’t seal in tar spots, tree sap and other debris that makes paintwork less than glass-smooth. If you have surface swirls or scratches you will need to polish them out or seal them in. Consider this as to remove this bonded on coating will require skilled machine polishing with abrasives. The finish this product produces will be bright and shiny, particularly if you have taken care in preparation and application, but may lack the warmth of good waxes on certain darker colours. You can therefore wax over the top, though as this is designed to shrug off dirt wax wont bind very well and durability will be poor. Putting wax underneath will definitely not work. This product is entirely suitable for all paint surfaces on cars, boats, motorhomes or caravans, motorcycles and quad bikes. So it’s perfect for steel, aluminium or GRP panels, with 2 pack, Gelcoat or standard solid or lacquered finishes. So, in 2-3 hours, or a little more if you take your time, you’ll save yourself, on a very conservative basis, £200 plus, have a much better finish and the satisfaction that you have done something worthwhile yourself and avoided multiple rip-offs. Warranty We have watched the market for 3 years and decided not to offer a warranty as its totally dependent on you following prescribed procedures and also gives a false sense of invincibility for your car. But if you are unhappy with durability and have looked after your car, then we will happily discuss alternatives with you if you feel this has not worked for you.

Nano Series Primer (500ml)
In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

Our Price: £25.00 (inc VAT)
Complex multi-link Nano technology blend of acrylic and PTFE compounds, no silicones, have been harnessed to produce a 2 part system which will produce an extremely long-lasting and tough protective layer on your vehicles paintwork - be that any type of paint on any base, including steel and fibreglass. The correct preparation of the surface with this cream Primer will ensure you achieve the intended 2-3 years durability of the system. The Primer allows the powerful cross-links between the polymers in both products to bond strongly and ensure durability. Omitting this stage will severely reduce the life of the sealant. Application is simple - see the Usage Instructions tab.

Heavy Duty Foam Lance (Karcher K)
In Stock
Usually ships in 24 Hours

RRP: £29.99
Our Price: £24.99 (inc VAT)
You Save: £5.00 (17%)
The Heavy Duty Foam Lance attaches directly to your pressure washer to create a powerful dispenser of snow foam for Touchless car washing. Used as a Pre-Wash process, the Heavy Duty Foam Lance will mix your favourite Snow Foam with a high pressure water flow to create a thick foam which clings to the vehicle. This softens and draws off dirt and grit from the vehicles surface. After a few minutes dwell time, the foam is then removed with either the pressure washer or open hose. This process eliminates a significant proportion of the harmful dirt and grit that causes swirls on the paintwork during hand washing, and dramatically softens organic material such as manure which afflicts rural cars. The lance we supply is not an Italian-made PA Lance as per the photo - so many good alternatives are available that the market doesn't want to pay £45 anymore. Karcher K-series connectors are made of high quality hard wearing nylon. Other fitments are available - please note fitment shown on the main image of the lance is NOT Karcher - the correct fitment is black and shown in the second image. Colour of fitments may vary from illustration.
