CARPRO IronX Iron Remover - 500 ml.

Item Description:

Removes Iron Particles and prevents the spread of iron-related damage & helps to protect your vehicle from paint system failure.

Safe to use, Acid Free, and pH neutral (pH 6-7).

Safe to use on Clear Coat Paint

Safe to use on Aluminum, Chrome, Alloy, or Clear coated wheels.

IronX is the perfect product to remove stubborn brake dust! After a few minutes of dwell time you will see the chemical reaction of IronX breaking down and removing unwanted ferrous contamination.

Airborne chemical compounds and ferrous (iron-containing) particles penetrate auto paint and create corrosive compounds that eat into the paint's sublayers. Detailing clay removes the particles but it doesn't remove their effects - corrosion may already be creeping under the paint's surface.

The only way to truly remove these damaging particles is with a dedicated iron remover like IronX. IronX opens up the paint's pores to flush out iron particles and to neutralize the caustic compounds that have developed as a result of the particle. In one step, you can eliminate the cause and its effects.  

IronX is completely safe and and effective on both automotive paint and safely cleans clear coats. IronX is also highly recommended for all clear coated alloy wheels. Brake dust and road grime become baked onto wheels over time. Brake dust contains high levels of iron and can quickly pit clear coated wheels.  When you use a product like IronX, you’re able to stop the corrosion in its tracks. 

Manufacture’s Note: IronX should not be used on bare metal parts, brake calipers, wheel balancing weights, or SMART paint repairs. Mask off these areas. Avoid letting IronX dry on any surface.

IronX is easy to use and you can see it working! IronX is a clear solution in the bottle but it turns purple when it comes into contact with sintered iron particles. IronX turns the iron into a water soluble complex for easy removal. After five minutes of dwell time, wipe down the surface and rinse thoroughly. After using IronX, you can polish and clay your vehicle as you normally would. After your car is prepped properly, it has a perfect surface to be coated with CQuartz Paint Coating.

Proper vehicle care with IronX means taking care of your investment above and below the paint's surface. IronX Iron Remover removes iron particles and their effects to keep the paint clean and healthy. 

  1. Wash the car or wheels surfaces, make sure surface is in cool temp.
  2. Shake well, spray on the surface. Rub it in with damp sponge thoroughly.
  3. Wait 5 min. while contaminants change its color to purple/red. Wipe off with damp soft sponge. Don’t let the IronX dry completely on surface!
  4. Rinse well or power wash the whole surface. The vehicle is ready to clay now.

500 ml.

This is the Only iron remover I’ll use and why:
April 2, 2022
1) high concentration of the chemicals that react with iron particles…when u add scents or try to make it not smelly you lose how strong the product is and are essentially getting less but paying more
2) great on wheels and paint…doesn’t damage plastic or glass if overspray occurs
Strong No added scents to weaken the product Safe when using wiith common sense

I'll start by saying all iron removers smell awful, it's the active ingredient that makes them work that smells so bad. However Iron X is the best out there. It works fast and is incredibly effective. Others take longer to work and don't dissolve the metal as much. Only iron remover I will ever use.

Does what it needs to, smells so bad.

This is a fantastic product, that did exactly what I had hoped. It didn't take long to figure out exactly how it works, and pretty soon I was able to get all the iron particulates off my car.

Just be very careful where you decide to open the bottle, or where you decide to spray. Don't open it inside your house or the smell will be everywhere.
That's exactly what you'd hoped at a reasonable price. The smell is the worst smelling chemical product I have ever smelt in my life. I accidentally opened it in my room Just a little bit and just briefly, and the smell lingered for a couple of hours.

Took care of some rust specs on near new paint
June 22, 2020
I had mysterious rust spots up the rear of my trunk and behind the wheel wells. Either my brakes or something on the road had contaminated my paint and was rusting. A quick spray and a rinse 5 minutes later revealed clean paint again. A couple areas required a second application but it came out like new when washing alone wouldn't fix it.

This also greatly reduced effort using the clay bar afterwards. It clearly lifted a lot more than just rust.
You can see it working! Also removed bugs and tar that bug squash left behind. There are very little details on the bottle as far as handing precautions and contents. The smell finds a way out of the bottle into the garage. Ended up using almost an entire bottle for one cleaning session.

I was dismayed when I found millions of tiny rust spots all over my beautiful light tan Monte Carlo's paint and rear bumper. My front brakes were dragging for weeks before I could get them fixed. I thought my paint might be ruined. Repeated, careful washing only removed 20% of the brake dust--it was really stuck on there! Internet research led me to Iron-X. I used half the bottle, and it removed 98% of the problem. I then removed the rest with a clay mitt, and waxed it. Iron-X did the job for me. The only problem was trying to stay ahead as the product wanted to dry out before I finished the entire car. I ended up adding clear water to my sponge as I smeared the purple around before rinsing. I probably could have gotten good results with using even less product--I ended up smearing the used purple product around to take the worst of the dust from the driver's door without ever even spraying it!

I'm Happy.
Very strong--removes rust dust without scratching clearcoat. A little longer "working time" would be helpful. One or two helpers would be useful when using this product.

This product works great. My vehicle had heavy industrial fallout. After one application it was completely gone. Definitely will be using this from now on.

Great for the whole car

This decontaminant will tend to stay a bit longer that competitors on the pannels, which makes it great for total decontamination.
The smell is just as awful, but is there a way around it ?

Claying after or during decontamination will still be necessary.

Great iron remover

Worked great to get stubborn brake dust off my wheels. not be fooled by the alleged, "Cherry scent"! It smells like primarily of low tide with notes of hot garbage and a chemical plant. I'm not sure I have smelled anything quite so objectionable.

But who cares what it smells like!

I have not had a lot of experience with other Iron removers, but this one seemed to work as advertised.

Does its job well
September 6, 2018
I own a newish white car, and I began noticing specks of rust on the body surface. After ordering this product, I applied it as directed. I immediately noticed the telltale purple streaks that everyone had mentioned in reviews and on YouTube. After rinsing, there were fewer rust spots. And after a few applications, I could no longer see the spots of rust. My car looks better than ever, and I'm happy with this product.

A must for coatings!
December 11, 2015
I got the Iron X as a part of cquartz coating kit, After applying it on the paint It immediately started to react with the iron embedded into the paint and removed them in seconds, it is a must if you are coating a vehicle or just want to clean your paint, I was impressed with the results on my finish as I clayed the surface first and then used Iron X, it was smooth as glass and contaminant free and ready for polishing and coating, the smell is strong and could be better, but it's one of the best on the market right now, It is also great on wheels and brake dust.
Effective Easy to use Smell could be better

My son brought his car in from Chicago and the finish felt like sand paper. He lives right next the the elevated transit tracks (the L) and the car was covered with rail deposits.

Sprayed on Iron-X and is dissolved most of the deposits. Followed that up with a clay bar treatment for any spits left behind and any other debri.

Washed and waxed - problem was solved .

Will keep up with a treatment every couple months. He material build up on his car was from 2 years - we will not let it get that bad again

Great product. Prompt shipping from Autopia

Completely satisfied

Smell doesn't matter
July 16, 2015
Sure it smells pretty bad, but it works great. It is worth suffering the 5 minutes to apply for the results. I like to use a foam applicator pad and really spread it around. It covers more area and uses less product since it is a little expensive.
Works Great Worth the Price Smells, but is worth it

I haven't tried any other Iron Removers (not counting Sonax Full Effect since that is for wheels) but I really love Iron-X and can't imagine it getting any better. The paint feels great after decon and clay stays much cleaner afterwards so I know it is really working. It is a little difficult to see it working on darker cars but if you wait a minute or two you will see the dissolved iron particles dripping on the ground. Another plus is Iron-X can be used on wheels and does a great job if you do run out of a wheel cleaner. I don't mind the smell of the cherry or the lemon scent but my wife really does hate when I use it.

This is one great product for decontaminating, takes away the hard work of brake dust and metal particle removal from your wheels...incredibly powerful...removes so of the heaviest brake dust, safe on the paint too.... Its actually fun to apply....watching it turn Purple
Lives up and exceeds its claim, must have for wheel and break dust removal..... smell
By EVOlved
Must have product!
September 5, 2014
Iron X is a must have product for any hobbyist or detailer. Iron X is most beneficial to light colored vehicles where rail dust and iron particles are easily visible and you can literally watch Iron X destroy them as it turns it's lovely shade of blood purple. This is not to say that every vehicle will not benefit from the occasional dose of Iron X, because claying will not take care of the below surface iron particles. Yes as everyone states it smells of an extremely lovely scent, it is a needed sacrifice as obviously it is one of the active ingredients that contains the lovely odor. Iron X will also work wonders on neglected wheels as a wheel cleaner to kill off brake dust and particles from your pads.
Extremely effective Easy to use Multi purpose The needed stank!

Great product. Bad smell

Only downside is the smell. Smells like a 1980s perm. Other than that, great product for dissolving iron. You can see it working. Makes it easy to clean wheels.

I use Iron X on my white F150 every spring to remove the ravages of Michigan winters.
It does an outstanding job off lifting the nasty orange spots left behind by brake dust and road salt.
Spray it on, and it does all the work.
I would definitely recommend this product!
Easy to use. Does a remarkable job!

Works well but the smell...
October 25, 2013
I purchased IronX to deal with a rail dust issue with a customer's car. Others have had great success and I was hoping for the same. It was actually really easy to use, spray, let dwell, wipe in with a damp pad, then rinse thoroughly. Turns purple as it works so you know for sure its found some iron it needs to dissolve. Nice to have a visual indicator like that. Only problem is the product smells awful. Like a cross between a perm and sewage. But if used in a well ventilated area, its not too hard to handle. And as well as the product works, small price to pay.
Works fast, good visual indicator when iron is present. It smells horrible.

Iron X
July 24, 2013
Iron X is magic in a bottle. Each year I have to clay bar my vehicles to get rid of the rust spots. As you may know this is time consuming and hard work. I always thought there must be an easier way and then I found Iron X. Thanks to this spray on hose off process I will not have to clay bar as I did before. Do yourself a favor and buy a large bottle.
It works!!!! Not sold in stores.
