Introducing the new Autobrite Direct Acidic Wheel Cleaner.

When it comes to maintaining the aesthetic appeal and longevity of your vehicle, paying attention to your wheels is of utmost importance. Over time, when not cleaned, road grime, brake dust, and other contaminants can accumulate on your wheels, dulling their shine and potentially causing long-term damage. This is where acid wheel cleaner comes to the rescue!

  1. Understanding Acidic Wheel Cleaner: Acidic wheel cleaner is a specialized cleaning product formulated to remove tough dirt, brake dust, and other stubborn contaminants from wheels. Unlike regular car wash soap, which may not be strong enough to tackle heavy build-up, acid wheel cleaners are specifically designed to dissolve and lift these contaminants, restoring the wheels’ original lustre.
  2. Benefits of Acidic Wheel Cleaner:
    a. Effective Cleaning: Acidic wheel cleaner is highly effective in removing brake dust, grease, oil, road grime, and other stubborn substances that accumulate on wheels.
    b. Time-saving: Acidic wheel cleaner works quickly, often requiring minimal scrubbing or agitation, thereby saving you time and effort.
    c. Versatility: Acidic wheel cleaner is suitable for steel, and painted wheels including commercial vehicles.
    d. Restores Shine: By eliminating layers of grime and brake dust, an acidic wheel cleaner can restore your wheels’ shine, giving your vehicle a fresh and well-maintained appearance.
  3. Proper Usage of Acidic Wheel Cleaner:
    a. Read the Instructions: Before using our Acidic wheel cleaner, carefully read and follow the instructions provided.
    b. Prepare Your Wheels: Ensure that your wheels are cool to the touch before applying the cleaner. Rinse off any loose debris and dirt from the surface.
    c. Apply the Cleaner: Spray Acidic wheel cleaner evenly onto the wheel surface, covering the entire area. Pay special attention to heavily soiled areas and the inside of the wheel.
    d. Allow Dwell Time: It is essential to allow the Acidic wheel cleaner to dwell on the wheel surface for the recommended time of 1-2 minutes. This allows the cleaner to break down and loosen the contaminants.
    e. Agitation: Using a soft brush or wheel cleaning tool, gently agitate the cleaner on the wheel surface to aid in the removal of stubborn dirt. Be cautious not to use abrasive tools that may damage the wheel finish.
    f. Rinse Thoroughly: After the dwell time and agitation, thoroughly rinse the wheel surface with clean water to remove all traces of the cleaner.
    g. Dry and Protect: Once the wheels are clean, dry them with a microfibre towel to prevent water spots. Applying a wheel sealant or wax can provide an extra layer of protection and enhance the shine.
  4. Precautions and Safety Measures:a. Protective Gear: When using Acidic wheel cleaner, it is advisable to wear protective gloves and safety goggles to prevent skin and eye irritation.
    b. Avoid Contact with Other Surfaces: Acid wheel cleaners are designed for wheels only. Avoid contact with vehicle paint, brake components, and other sensitive surfaces as they may get damaged.
    c. Test on a Small Area: Before applying the cleaner to the entire wheel, test it on a small, inconspicuous area to ensure compatibility and prevent any potential damage.
    d. Follow Environmental Regulations: Dispose of any unused acid wheel cleaner or rinse with water according to local environmental regulations.e. If any product is spilt onto a surface it is not intended for, please rinse immediately to avoid any damage to the area i.e. driveway or grass.
