Iron Wash

Removes metal particles with purple “bleeding” effect, ideal for wheels.

Flying metal particles (fly rust) caused by industry, train track overhead wires and vehicle braking, among others, get stuck on paint and rims. These hard-to-remove particles can be removed quickly and effectively with Cartec Iron Wash. This Ph neutral product reacts with these particles, creating a purple “bleeding” effect and dissolving the metal particles.

On rims: 1 min
On paint: 5-15 min

When used on paintwork:

1. Spray Cartec Iron Wash on the surface to be treated and

then leave it to act for 5-10 minutes.

2. After a few minutes, the fly rust and brake dust present

will turn purple. A sponge or a clay product (such as

3041/3) can be used to speed up the process.

For stubborn dirt, the treatment can be repeated.


When used on rims:

1. Spray Cartec Iron Wash on the rim or hubcap. make sure

to touch everything well.

2. Wait until the product turns purple and leave it to act for a maximum of 1 minute.

3. Remove the dirt with a pressure washer, before the purple colour changes to brown.

4. In case of persistent soiling, the treatment can be repeated. Use the Wheelsan brush (3039/4) to soak off the dirt.

Warning: always check the product before use in an inconspicuous

place to avoid any damage. Do not use the product on

galvanised steel. do not allow the product to dry.
