There are different types of contamination, in general, we can define them as everything that we cannot remove with a normal detergent. At first glance, contaminants are often not visible. They are however present on the rims, bodywork and even on the windows of the vehicle.
How can we recognize them?
On RIMS, ferrous contamination is easily identifiable: for example, after cleaning with a specific product, if dirt and black or dark brown dots remain between the spokes and on the rim channel, this is to be considered contamination.
On the BODYWORK, if the contamination is deep, the color of the car will appear dull and in the case of white cars, even after washing, you will continue to notice small dark brown dots.
If, on the other hand, after washing your car you seem not to see any dark spots, the contamination is not visible, but I invite you to give it a try: get some common disposable gloves, those used by the gas station or to do the shopping: wear them and gently “caress” the bodywork: you can easily perceive the rough surface to the touch: it is contamination!
Maniac Line ™ Iron Remover removes iron oxide contamination, such as stubbornly embedded brake dust and ferrous particles created by friction on railway or tram tracks and by industrial and roadside or construction site pollution.
Our advice is to use Iron Remover when the bodywork is dull or rough to the touch and when there are still dots or dark spots on the rims after washing.
For a better job, a brush or a brush will be useful, depending on the surface to be treated.
• Ready to use, maximum dilution 1:1.
• Acid-free pH neutral formula.
• Eliminates rough to the touch parts (because of iron contamination) from the bodywork.
• Ideal for the decontamination of all steel and light alloy rims and also on chromed and polished rims for the removal of dirt that cannot be removed with other rim cleaning products.
• Restores brilliance.
The product has a neutral pH and due to its characteristic odour, we recommend using it in an open and well-ventilated area. The product only works on ferrous or containing iron materials: avoid dispensing on brake callipers if they are not painted.
Instructions for use
Always work in the shade and after making sure that the surface is cold.
For a maintenance decontaminating action, 1 time every 3 washes, for example diluted 1: 1(1 part of product and 1 part of water)Let it act for approximately 3/4 minutes without ever letting the surface dry.
Its innovative formula is characterized by a particular active marker that reacts with the ferrous contaminating particles present on the rim, dissolving them. While it acts, it assumes the characteristic purplish color that melts and at the same time deeply degreases the treated surface. The smell of sulfur is also characteristic: with this product the challenge was to cover it, making it more pleasant.
Let’s help ourselves with a brush, or a soft bristle brush and make sure to remove the dirt in depth even between the spokes and in the most difficult to reach interstices.
Then proceed to rinse the rim with plenty of water and dry with a microfiber cloth.The product is ideal for the decontamination of all steel and light alloy rimsand also on chromed and polished rims for the removal of dirt that cannot be removed with other rim cleaning.Iron Remover also has an extraordinary cleansing action, a real 2 in 1 – cleans and decontaminates
After washing and drying the car, always in the shade and never on a hot surface, we dispense the pure product, evenly, at a distance of about 40 cm.
Leave the product to act for about 5/10 minutes, we will see it act by dissolving and deeply purifying the treated surfaces. After a thorough rinsing with an abundant jet of water, the car will have a completely new look: believe me, all surfaces will be smooth to the touch and will appear brighter and more vividly colored.Furthermore, decontamination is an essential process if you want to apply on protective, since it promotes membership.
ron Remover is ready to use and can be directly and safely applied to wheels, bodywork and windows. 1:1 dilution (one part product to one part water) is recommended only for maintenance or light contamination.
What is contamination?
Contamination can be of various origin and can be summarised as minerals, calcium, iron and lime scale. Iron particles created by friction on railway or tram lines or emitted by factories are extremely volatile and all vehicles are subject to this type of dirt. Normal detergents do not work on these types of contaminants and cannot dissolve the dirt. This is why it is essential to have a specific decontaminant for iron fallout.
What is the difference between a normal iron remover and Iron Remover of Maniac Line™ ?
The main advantages over commercially available iron removers are: speed of action, safety of use and a pleasant scent that covers the typical pungent smell of sulphur.
When cleaning rims, when should I use an iron remover and when should I use a specific cleaner?
Use Wheel&Tire Cleaner every time you wash the car and Iron Remover every three washes. Unlike dirt, ferrous contamination builds up over time, dulling the shine of the surface.
Can I use Iron Remover before applying wax or a protective treatment?
Yes, this should be done before applying a wax or protective treatment as it helps adherence.
When should I use Iron Remover on the bodywork and how often?
When your car bodywork is dull or rough to the touch and when there are dots or dark spots after washing. We recommend using Iron Remover on the bodywork every three washes.
Where is contamination usually found?
Contamination can be found on the rims, bodywork and even on the windows of the vehicle.
How can I tell if there is contamination on the rims?
Contamination can be seen easily on the rims. Usually, once the rim has been cleaned with a specific product, all dirt and black or dark brown dots remaining on the rim and between the spokes are considered contamination.
How can I tell if there is contamination on the body or windows?
If the contamination is extensive, it may also be visible on the bodywork: the colour of the bodywork will look dull and, for white cars, you will still see brown dots after washing. If you can't see it, take a plastic shopping bag, the disposable ones for example, and - with your hand inside it - wipe it over the bodywork: you’ll feel the rough bodywork underneath. What you are feeling is contamination.
What do you need for this task?
A soft-bristled brush to apply the product evenly, the rub to increase the penetrating action and thereby the effectiveness on embedded dirt, and a hose.
Why can’t I use it on unpainted callipers?
Because unpainted callipers are made from crude iron, an alloy of iron and lead. The product acts on iron and could blacken the callipers. Therefore, take care when applying the product close to the brake calliper.
Should Iron Remover be diluted?
Iron Remover is ready to use and can be directly and safely applied to wheels, bodywork and windows. 1:1 dilution (one part product to one part water) is recommended only for maintenance or light contamination.
