Bilt Hamber auto-clay is designed to remove stubbornly bonded surface contaminants and restore a perfectly smooth finish on bodywork and glass. Three different versions of Bilt Hamber auto-clay are available, none of which require the use of a dedicated clay bar lubricant; all three glide smoothly over underlying surfaces using just water alone. The regular version is very firm and has a relatively high level of abrasive strength, which makes it ideal for use in hot weather and for removing high levels of contamination. The medium version is softer and easier to shape, which makes it ideal for year-round use and for tackling moderate levels of contamination. As its name suggest, the soft version is even softer and has a relatively low level of abrasive strength, which makes it ideal for use in cold weather and for removing low levels of contamination. When used appropriately, all three versions leave treated surfaces feeling silky smooth in readiness for either polishing or the addition of protection.
How to use:
Bilt Hamber auto-clay is designed to work optimally with water, although a dedicated clay lubricant may also be used. Before use, divide the clay into several pieces and soften them up in a bowl of warm water. When you are ready to start (after washing and rinsing your car normally, and then treating the bodywork and glass with tar and iron removers), take out one of the pieces and mould it into a patty shape. Next, soak the first surface to be treated with water or a dedicated clay lubricant and, using light pressure, begin rubbing the clay over it in straight lines in all directions. Initially you may feel some resistance (as the clay encounters residual contaminants), but this will gradually ease until the clay glides freely, indicating that the contaminants have been fully removed. Swap the piece of clay after each panel or window (to ensure you are always working with a soft piece) and repeat these steps until all of the bodywork and glass is done. Finally, either foam or wash the car again, and then rinse it thoroughly and dry off. Note that if you drop a piece of clay at any point you must immediately discard it, otherwise you run the risk of damaging your car.
