Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay Bar works with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant to protect your paint from unseen dangers. Detailing clay works by gliding across the paint and picking up any debris that protrudes from the paint surface. The debris sticks to the clay bar and is removed from the paint. Polishing can be unnecessarily abrasive and washing alone doesn’t touch this kind of contamination. Detailing clay is the answer.
In order for detailing clay to glide easily on the paint without scratching, you must use Wolfgang Clay Lubricant. This combination of products will leave your vehicle feeling slick, smooth, and incredibly clean. Once wax or a paint sealant is applied, it will seal off the tiny holes left by the removed contaminants. Your vehicle will look mirror-smooth and flawless, but only if you use Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay as part of your detailing process!
A quality wax or paint sealant enhances the present condition of the paint. If the paint is gritty and dirty, the shine will appear cloudy and uneven. However, if the paint is clean and smooth, the wax or sealant will look glossy and slick. Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay helps you achieve a glassy surface that looks incredible under any wax or sealant. Plus, the paint protection will bond better with totally clean paint.
Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay Bar should be used twice a year to maintain a slick, reflective finish. If your vehicle requires polishing and claying, use the clay first. Clay will remove any abrasive debris so it does not get rubbed into the paint as you polish.

Use moderate pressure passing
the clay across the paint.
- Clay should only be used on a clean vehicle. Before each use knead the clay to expose a fresh, unused surface.
- Spray a small area of your car’s surface with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant.
- Using moderate pressure, pass clay across the paint until you don’t feel any more “grabbing.” The clay will move freely when all pollutants have been removed. Be sure to keep the car well lubed. Check clay often for any particles that might scratch the surface, and shave them off.
- When you’ve clayed the entire car, buff it clean with a dry towel to remove any clay residue. Rinse and dry your car.
- For the ultimate outcome, follow claying with Wolfgang Paintwork Polish Enhancer, then protect and seal in the shine with Deep Gloss Paint Sealant. This will yield an unbelievable showroom-quality finish.
Tech Notes: The vehicle should be washed and dried before using detailing clay. Store Wolfgang Elastic Poly Clay Bar in a sealed plastic bag inside its original case. Mist the clay with Wolfgang Clay Lubricant before storing it to keep the clay moist.
