Highly effective, acid-free and pH balanced, CarPro Iron X stops rust spots and pre-mature failure of the clear coat by making short work of iron contaminant removal across the entire vehicle! Using Iron X saves time and helps avoid the laborious claying process used in traditional car care regimes. This formulation of CarPro Iron X is safe and effective for use on all car surfaces and will not deteriorate clear coats. This preventative measure puts a stop to pre-mature corrosion.
Airborne chemical compounds and ferrous particles (particles containing iron) actually penetrate the paint and create corrosive compounds that eat deep into the paint's sub-layers. This is a gradual process that is not evident until it's too late.
Iron X contains unique chemical ingredients that effectively dissolves the sintered iron by forming a water soluble iron complex. No other method cleans paint and wheels as deeply as Iron X. The Iron X Paint and wheels decontamination system was developed to remove the root of the problem (BELOW the top surface) rather than just shave off the top of the particle in the manner traditional claying offers.
During the use of your vehicle, brake dust and road grime become sintered to the surface of the paint, rims, and wheels due to the high temperatures they are exposed to. Brake dust contains high levels of iron and once sintered to the rim, becomes extremely difficult to dissolve or remove without the use of harsh chemicals. Iron X opens up the paint's pores to release ferrous particles and to neutralize caustic compounds that have developed in the paint's subsurface. Ongoing damage is immediately stopped and future damage is prevented, by removing the ferrous particles.
Iron X sprays on as a transparent liquid. As the cleansing liquid begins to work into the dirt and grime, the formula begins to turn purple or red. This coloring affect is the Iron X Cleaner forming a bond to the sintered iron on the car paint or wheel and changing its state to a water-soluble complex for easy wipe or rinse off. Stubborn, baked on grime may take a small amount of agitation.
Iron X is widely used by body shops, high-end detailers, and even dealerships for new and used car prep. It is proven to deliver a clean, glassy smooth vehicle free of iron contaminants. No other iron decontamination product is as safe, fast, and effective!

How iron particles appear on your car surface and where?
Iron particles are all around us, and of course on our cars after traveling. They can be made from your car braking, driving near other cars, big trucks, train rails, industrial zones etc. They adhere to the car surface and once they "stick" to your paint due to there sharp edges together with sunshine they start to bake into the soft car paint where they oxidize and rust.
How to prevent iron dust from etching your paint ?
It’s almost impossible to prevent the irons to stick on the surface , but it has been proven that inorganic coatings (CQuartz) has a self-cleaning affect and can reduce the quantity of iron that adheres to the surface.
Is Iron X pH Neutral?
Why does it change color?
With Iron X it is due to chemical reaction between the chemicals and iron. Some other products change colors as well. There are very cheap chemicals other companies use that change their character simply by contact with air or iron but have zero to little dissolving power.
Why do you use fully plastic spray heads?
Iron X would react with normal triggers with metal springs inside.
Will Iron X stain chrome wheels or chrome trims?
No, it’s completely safe to use on any chrome wheels, trim, or bare aluminum wheels.
Will Iron X discolor wheel weights ?
Yes, it will. Wheel weights are made from lead, Iron X will change the lead color to green. However light agitation will recover the original color.
Will Iron X affect brake calipers ?
For most high end calipers it will not affect them however it can affect the paint color of low quality acrylic painted calipers. For this reason we advise you to be careful near calipers if unsure of the finish or type of paint.
Will Iron X remove wax from car paint?
Yes, if it’s a highly organic oil type it will affect the wax properties. If it’s a synthetic polymer sealant it won’t affect it much. On CarPro Sealants, Cquartz coatings, or other true coatings it won’t affect them at all. In fact it is designed for use on coatings as well.
Does Iron X remove tar spots as well?
No, Iron X reacts only with iron particles.
Is Iron X safe to use on 3M and Paint Protection Film?
Yes, there is no problem at all using it on clear bra and modern PPF when used properly.
Why does it smell so bad?
This is the nature of the chemical used, you cannot avoid this. If it doesn’t smell so strong it means it has very little effect on iron or is a very diluted or inferior formula.
Why does Iron X have low viscosity?
If you make the product too thick it will not react well with iron particles due to the thickener additives. If you make it too thin there will only be a short reaction time, which will leave some iron behind. With Iron X we have found the sweet spot between these two variables to create the most potent but safe iron fallout remover on the market.
Can I leave Iron X to dry on the surface?
Yes, Iron X could dry on the surface of a modern gloss clear coat paint system as long as you wash it off, but do not let it dry on the surface when under direct sun.
