Industrial fallout commonly comes from railway lines and metal production/fabrication processes found in industrial areas and the contamination occurs when a car is parked in these areas. It is a fairly common problem but many people either don’t notice it until damage has been done, or if they do notice it they don’t know what it is or how to deal with it.
The first thing we do is to clay the car. If the fallout is not too severe and has not been sitting on the surface for long, claying may well be able to safely and effectively lift off the metal contaminants. If the contamination is quite severe and has begun to oxidize then the chances are that claying will not remove it. The next step will then be to use a designated fallout remover product. These are acid based and actively dissolve the metal particles without inflicting any damage onto the paintwork. After using a fallout remover the car will be thoroughly washed, rinsed and dried to remove any product residue.
