Paint Surface Staining:
The paint film surface becomes stained when continually exposed to an outdoor environment and inclement weather. Dirt and pollution accumulate in the microscopic pores and surface imperfections of the paint film surface and causes it to become clouded and grey, which over time causes a staining effect that hides the true colour of the paint system.

Light coloured paint shows this staining more than dark colours, white being particularly vulnerable to staining Removing paint staining build-up requires detailers clay to remove imbedded particles, a paint safe chemical cleaner (Klasse AIO) to clean road dirt and grime and a machine polish to clean the surface and replace the necessary oils. Once the surface has been ‘cleaned’ apply a polymer sealant and/or a wax for surface protection.

Hey Red,

How did it work out for you? My A4 is Silver and I think it needs the same work done.

Pablo_Ottawa - TOGWT gave the proper advice and should work well for your silver colored paint. We stock both quality clay bars and Klasse AIO as mentioned and would be happy to put together anything else you may need for caring for your vehicle. Feel free to contact me with any further questions.

George
