What is paint contamination?
Paint contamination is tiny metal shavings from rail dust, brake dust, and industrial fallout. This contamination affects all paint finishes. They can be felt as a “rough or gritty” texture on the paint’s finish.
These hot metallic particles fill the air on highways and near railroad tracks where they ultimately land on car’s finish, burning through any wax or sealant coating and embedding themselves in the top paint or clear coat layer. This contamination affects all paint finishes and can cause serious damage when left untreated.
This contamination can not be removed by washing, waxing or polishing.
After washing and drying your vehicle put your hand inside a plastic sandwich bag and lightly run your fingertips over the paint’s surface. It should be as smooth as glass. If your car’s surface has a rough, gritty or pebble-like texture, it indicates the presence of paint contamination.
Where does it come from?
There are three major causes of paint contamination:
These contaminants may not be obvious but they cause the paint to feel bumpy and to appear patchy. The uneven appearance of the paint is caused by a patch of contaminants causing an uneven reflection.
