BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection
A premium paint sealant designed for the perfectionist. It creates an extremely slick finish and incredible depth with a revolutionary blend of three incredible polymers.  Sourced from Germany and Switzerland, these polymers have a protective quality and depth of gloss that surpassed all others tested. BLACKFIRE Wet Diamond All Finish Paint Protection refracts light, similar to a diamond, to create a vibrant, super slippery, head-turning finish.
    After our hand wash and clay bar treatment we use our dual-action polisher and ultra-soft finishing pads to apply our premium wax.  This ensures a thin even coat, which allows the wax to bond and cure faster. 
        To ensure those months of protection, it is recommended that we maintain your vehicles finish so as to protect your vehicles paint.
        Some car washing facilities use harsh soaps and cleaners that strip or compromise the durability of the wax.  Using ph balanced products to clean your vehicles exterior safeguards your paints protection.
HOW DO WE CLEAN (SHAMPOO) YOUR CARPETS AND MATS?

   Use professional equipment if you want professional results! Just like a dual-action polisher, the 3 gallon Mytee Lite II Heated Carpet Extractor is one of the most important tools a professional auto detailer can own.

    Whether talking about laundry or dishes, everyone knows that hot water cleans much better than cold. In the world of professional automotive detailing, the same rule applies. That's why no serious auto detailer would consider operating a detailing business without a 3 gallon Mytee Lite II Heated Carpet Extractor to clean carpets and upholstery
        Carpet and upholstery cleaning with hot water actually helps break up dirt and grease that would not be as easily removed using the old-fashioned technique of a bucket of cold soapy water and a brush or sponge. You wouldn't have a professional carpet cleaner clean your carpets that way, so why should you use that technique on automotive carpet and upholstery?
        And because the 3 gallon Mytee Lite II Heated Carpet Extractor actually sprays the surface with hot water and then extracts it immediately, the process leaves the fabric or carpet free of soapy residue and much dryer, allowing you to finish your detail in less time than detailing by hand. Professional detailers agree: A hot water carpet extractor like the 3 gallon Mytee Lite II Heated Carpet Extractor is a must-have!
"THE DEALERSHIP TOLD ME NOT TO WAX MY CAR,
THEY SAID IT RUINS THE FINISH."

Well why would a dealership tell me not to wax my vehicle?  Unfortunately we can't answer that question directly since really we don't know why  they would say such a thing.  But what we can tell you is that not properly washing and protecting (wax/sealant) your vehicles paint from the elements will  incur damage.  Your vehicles clearcoat, meant to protect and add gloss to your vehicle, is not impervious to the elements.  It is basically a layer of transparent paint.  It needs washing and protection. 
    Improper  washing and waxing will ruin your vehicles finish, so care and knowledge is needed to properly maintain your vehicles paint.
    Improper  compounding and polishing will also ruin your vehicles finish, untrained and careless "detailers" have been known to cause such damage either unknowingly or uncaringly.  A high-speed rotary polisher in the wrong hands will cause swirls, holograms (buffer trails) and can even burn through the clearcoat, especially at the corners and edges of your vehicles panals. 
    Protecting or waxing your vehicle is very important. 
    Sacrificial Barrier Coating
    "The primary purpose of a car wax or synthetic paint sealant is to act as a sacrificial barrier coating over the surface of your car’s paint. The idea being that anytime anything comes into contact with your car’s paint, before it can cause any damage to the paint it first has to get past the layer of wax or paint sealant. When your car’s paint is under attack, the layer of wax or paint sealant sacrifices itself so your paint doesn’t have to sacrifice itself.  Or in other words, the layer of wax or paint sealant gives itself up so your car’s paint doesn’t have to give itself up."

What Is Detailing Clay?


What Are Bonded Contaminants?
When we wash your car, the fresh contaminants are removed from the paint and the paintwork looks clean. However, washing will leave behine the bonded contaminats which are attached to the paint as if they had been glued on:

These bonded contaminats are hard to see, so after washing your paintwork looks clean. However, if you gently run your fingers acorss the paintwork you may feel that the paintwork feels rough - a bit like stubble in a way. This roughness, grittiness that you are feeling is the bonded contaminants in the paint.

Examples of bonded contaminants are:

> Brake dust - sharp, so embeds itself in the paint
> Industrial fallout
> Tree sap - very sticky so adheres strongly to the paint

Removing Bonded Contaminants - Clay
In order to remove the bonded contaminats and restore a glassy smooth feel to the paint, detailing clay is used.  If you have not removed them by clay, when you come to polish, glaze, seal or wax, it means that you are now sealing in remaining bonded contaminants.  Simply washing and waxing will not remove bonded contaminants, they will be left behind and then just waxed over, reducing the longevity of the wax.

Clay basically works by grabbing hold of the bonded contaminants and pulling them off of the paint surface:  "Paint Exfoliation"









Frequently Asked Questions
***Important Point to Remember***
"I think we can all agree that a great looking finish is a glossy looking finish. Gloss comes from smoothness. Bonded contaminants on your car's paint create surface texture, that is a rough feel to the paint. This also diminishes smoothness and therefore diminishes gloss.

Claying removes above surface bonded contaminants and is the first step after washing to restore a high gloss finish to any car, including the one in your garage or driveway.

Claying also enables your choice of wax or paint sealant to better bond to the paint by removing a layer of contaminants off the paint so the protection ingredients can bond to the paint unhindered."
