Clay bar to remove surface contamination

Over time, contamination of surfaces can occur due to tar, rail dust, tree sap and other environmental pollution, all of which can not be removed by washing alone. Some valeters will use Traffic Film Remover (TFR) or solvents to remove these which are harsh on the paintwork, can dull chrome and cause premature aging of rubber seals and plastics.

At GCV, prior to washing we use a gentle citrus cleaner, and following the wash, we use a clay bar with lubricant to pull contamination from the surface (standard in our exterior Platinum valets). This is kinder to the vehicle as well as leaving long-term, durable waxes intact.

Machine Polishing

Machine polishing includes the elimination of oxidation, and reduction or elimination of minor scratches and swirls. GCV’s Platinum valets include single stage machine polishing. Our detailing service includes up to 3 levels of polishing from compounding to ultra-fine finishing.

Specialist Glaze, Sealant or Wax

Waxes, glazes and sealants provide the final protection for your newly prepared paintwork. The standard wax affords a good degree of durability.

However, we also offer a range of premium waxes from Collinite, Duragloss and Swissvax, representing some of the world’s most reputable brands. These products have a high content of quality Carnauba and natural conditioning oils. The resulting glossy, water-repellent coating is easier to keep clean and maintains a superb deep gloss shine and maximises resistance to environmental hazards.

To take the final protection of your paintwork to the next level, why not consider our Silex Professional Coatings? This nano technology provides a superb hydrophobic finish that really shines.
