    auto-clay regular

auto-clay regular provides a method of removing harmful contamination from vehicle paint finishes, improving its
durability and increasing the gloss level of subsequent waxes. auto-clay regular is ideally suited to cars not
previously clayed, heavily contaminated or for the removal of overspray. It's also great for hot summer
months or warmer climates.


Our clay-bars are designed to effortlessly restore the factory smooth finish to paint finishes. They have received critical acclaim in the detailing industry for being the most durable, cost effective and well-designed clay-bars available today.

Auto Express Magazine, a giant in the car magazine world, has awarded auto-clay with their Best Clay Bar award every year for the last 5! Also they compared the clay-cloths to clay-bars in one recent test, where they concluded that bars were better, and that auto-clay was the pick of the bunch once again!

So which clay-bar do you need?

The choice between the auto-clay bars will depend on several factors:

Regular –

If the vehicle is heavily contaminated,  has never been clay-barred before, or it’s hot summertime then use Regular.  All clay bars become firmer when cold and softer when warm.

Medium –

For paintwork that is in a reasonable condition, Medium will be preferred.

The easier folding of the clay to expose a fresh working surface will be very beneficial.

Soft –

If paint is in good condition, if you like to clay your vehicle frequently or indeed if the weather is cold, then use Soft.

Why use a clay-bar?

Assess the degree of embedded metallic and brake dust debris that has entered the surface of your paint film by gently rubbing the paint with fingertips.

Feel for the grittiness that these damaging particles impart to paint films.

Using Bilt-Hamber Clay-Bars - regular, medium or soft - you will effortlessly remove particles, leaving the paint glass-smooth. Discolouring road film will also be gently lifted.

Claying will make a world of difference when lubricated with plenty of water and hardly any pressure. The bar glides like an ice hockey puck, and is pleasant and satisfying to use.


Not only does the paint feel and look a lot better once clayed, but the removal of these objects sticking to the surface allows the next stages of paint care to progress far more smoothly. As now cleansers, waxes and polishes glide across the surface far more easily.


It is highly recommended that before using a clay bar the paint is pre-treated with korrosol.
This high activity cleaner actively removes embedded metallic particles in a simply spray on rinse off action.
By removing these particles before the clay-bar is used, the bar will last longer and concentrate its action on the remaining contamination.

Contamination can consist of tiny metallic particles from rail dust, brake dust and industrial fallout; or non-metallic
substances such as tree sap, bird droppings or insect residue. It affects all paint finishes and can cause serious
damage when left untreated. Surprisingly, even brand-new cars and trucks can suffer from paint contamination.
Metallic contamination is perhaps the worst offender; whilst stuck into the paint surface it corrodes and expands
leading to the onset of paint film destruction.

Paint contamination can be felt as a rough or gritty texture on the freshly cleaned paint's surface. This contamination
cannot be removed by washing, waxing and/or polishing.
 
Which type of clay?

  • Regular clay for intensive cleaning of moderate to heavy contamination and / or summer use.
  • Soft clay is designed for more frequent and / or winter use.
  • Medium clay is suitable for all round use.

All grades contain exactly the same particle size and low moh's hardness pure mineral filler.

A Comparison

Competing clays require the use of special lubricants. Bilt-Hamber Laboratories auto-clay differs as its formulation
enables normal tap water to provide the necessary lubrication. Some clay bars contain surfactants such as powdered
detergents or soaps. Long-term use of surfactants can have adverse effects on paint systems - auto-clay contains
no surfactants detergents soaps or other soluble materials.
