As a starter, clay is meant to remove bonded contaminants thereby giving you a smooth surface upon with to then polish and then wax. You know you car will benefit from claying by this simple test: Wash and dry it completely and then run your dry hand over the surface. If it's not smooth as glass there are contaminants boned to the surface that have to be removed if you want very high quality results from your detailing project.
Clay is basically fine grit suspended in clay for ease of use. Yes, that means it's like really fine sandpaper. It works by basically shearing off the contaminates from the surface.
All clay is basically made by the same companies in Japan becuase they hold the patent (as I understand it). Companies like Megs specify the quality and consistency they want and it is made to their specs. Megs specifies good quality clay (pliable, consistent grit size, etc) and hence their clay is high quality and consistent.
After you've washed your car completely with something that will strip all the wax off, like Dawn (only time you use something like Dawn is when you are completely detailing your car). Then you break off a small chunk of clay and flatten it into a pancake 2-3 inches in diameter. Get a good quality quick detailer, like Megs Quick Detailer, and mist a small 12 X 12 area and rub the pancaked clay gently back and forth over the area a few times. If you feel the clay grab, stop and spray more. The idea is to keep the area well lubricated. Then wipe that area with a quality terry or microfiber.Read more ›
I've used several (milder) clay bars in the past from brands such as sonus, mother's, meguiars, zaino, Griot's, and a couple of others. I've found them to vary both in terms of ease of use and speed at which they removed the contaminants.
My assumption with this clay was that being 'Aggressive', it'd remove the bonded contaminants with less elbow-grease than milder claybars. Instead, what I found (and later confirmed by reading online) is that this clay is intended for heavy contamination, and as a precursor to swirl removal.
I was careful to use this clay as directed, and with plenty of spray to keep the surface lubricated. It did a good job of removing contamination, but not noticeably better than other brands I've used. The major downside I found with this clay was that it marred the paint horribly, leaving swirl marks all over the finish which was previously lightly swirled.
If you plan to machine polish the car afterwards anyway, or don't care about swirl marks this is probably a good enough product. For a light to normal amount of surface contamination, I'd strongly recommend you look at something milder.
The only cons: you can't use this on black plastic or rubber.
Tip: The mfg. suggests a couple of products to use with the bar so it slides. Don't buy other cleaners to use with this, just use soapy water. Also, plan on a few hours to clean the whole vehicle to do a good job.
If you don't require the agressive, always use the mild grit of this product.
