Before we physically touch your vehicle we will pre-wash with Snow Foam to remove as much of the dirt and contaminants from your vehicle.
The Snow Foam we use is a new generation premium quality, foaming water-based pre wash treatment, designed to soak and saturate soiled vehicle paintwork prior to the application of vehicle shampoo and paint food. The foam is gentle specifically formulated for use with all pressure washer foam lances. Applied at a typical PIR (Panel Impact Ratio) of 4%, auto-foam will panel dwell for typically 5 minutes. Snow Foam is formulated specifically to offer maximum wetting, it rinses easily too.
Your vehicle will then be rinsed from the bottom to the top in a methodical process that prevents those missed areas.
Tyres and Alloy Wheels:
We use a non-acid, non-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner, and in over 90% of cases no agitation is required. Where additional treatment is required we will use a soft brush treatment.
Our pH neutral formulation reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particles rendering it water soluble, the rapid removal of this microscopically rusted surface reduces the embedded particle size and releases it from the surface. Unlike acid based alloy wheel cleaners, this method is harmless to the wheel’s finish. The reaction is seen by a rapid colour change from clear to deep red. After a simple hose, rinse down or jet-wash it leaves the wheel spotless. In severe cases the included wheel brush can be used to assist the process.
As vehicles brake, the dust generated from pads, discs and drums are at high temperatures, producing a hot cloud of thousands of hot metallic particles, these bombard the wheels finish and effectively embed themselves on to the wheel.
Once lodged these particles are extremely difficult to remove. Acid based alloy wheel cleaners attack these metal particles effectively, reducing its size - allowing the particles and dirt clinging to it to escape. Caustic alloy cleaners are less effective than acid ones on brake dust, but can attack organic coatings such as lacquers and paints on short exposure, they attack any organic matter accumulated around the embedded particles and produce a seemingly clean surface, however with continued use they will dull and diminish the coating, leaving a wheel surface that needs refinishing.
In most cases steel and alloy wheels are either lacquered or painted. These coatings protect the metallic surface from corrosion and provide the attractive finishes to automotive road wheels.
Micro Fibre Cloths
We use very high quality micro-fibre, deep-pile, soft and durable micro fibre cloth. This cloth is 60x40cm, ultra-soft, machine washable and an ultrafine micro-fibre.
Using 70% Polyester and 30% Polyamide - with soft overlocked. The cloth is highly absorbent and the micro-fibres draw particulate matter into the cloth.
Marque2 Valeting will then apply a concentrated quick detailer spray incorporating unique charged polymers suspended particulate matter to protect highly finished automotive paints from hologram scratching.
So between washing the product acts as an effective "waterless wash" product, saving time and water, but preventing cob-web scratching that can be imparted by non-charged products.
The high-shine imparted protects and beautifies paintwork, inhibits UV degradation and oxidisation.
It also very effectively preserves previously applied last stage products (LSP's) such as waxes and sealers like cleanser-polish, auto-balm, finish-wax, hydra-wax and micro-fine.
Water based and safe for all automotive paint finishes, the polish does not result in chemical build-up or dusty chalky residue.
Another benefit is that it will effectively clean paintwork after compounding stages and does not mark or stain plastic trim, rubber or composites and will impart protection and sheen, quickly reviving gloss and preventing water spotting.
