CARPRO IronX Iron Remover - 1 Liter

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 chrome, 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.

Love this stuff!

This stuff is incredible. It pulls out contaminates from the paint that you can't even see. Simple to use. Just wash vehicle, spray on IronX and watch the paint bleed. Good stuff!

Special purpose product does what it's supposed to do
October 23, 2020
I never used an iron remover until now. Used it to remove accumulation of deposits (some iron) on my 2008 Altima. Did a test section first. No negative effects to the paint, glass or plastic parts. Then, did entire car. During the 3 minute dwell time, some of it dried on the car. It still worked and washed off without issue. I used a soft sponge to wipe the finish before rinsing. I sprayed carefully on the wheels to NOT get it on the disc brakes / caliper area. Smells strong like skunk and rotten eggs but not that overpowering. Use outside. The paint finish was very smooth after the treatment. On the alloy wheels, there were corners where there was a lot of rust, tar and what looked like varnish built up. There was a lot of purple "bleeding" on the tires when this product was applied. A lot, but not all of the rust and varnish came off. I used it a 2nd time and a little more rust came off. The surprise was the pink residue that dripped onto my concrete driveway left clean spots. They were really areas where the product removed the embedded iron from within the concreate. Like another reviewer mentioned, I am going to try this on rust spots on concrete and see if it removes them.
  • Removes iron deposits safely on car
  • Will remove iron from concrete and leave clean spot

Only product that actually cleaned my wheels
March 18, 2020
I AutoX my car and have huge AP Racing BBK with racing pads, lots of brake dust, more than most anyone I know.. racing in dry to wet, it cakes on badly. I took my car to a detailer, no go they didn't get anything off (they where like, that is cooked on bro!) I even challenged a car wash to see if they could remove the layer of brake dust, no go. I bought Chemical bros, and Meguiars wheel cleaners.. they smelled good but did nothing.. Now Iron X smells like death 2x .. on my first application It looked like I have new Wheels!! this stuff works on nasty brake dust and more.. Side effects where my brake calipers also looked super rad, I'd forgotten how cool they looked!!
  • This stuff actually works
  • Smells terrible and probably super toxic, have gloves and mask handy when using!

Great price, great product

This decontaminant will tend to stay a bit longer that competitors on the pannels, which makes it great for total decontamination.

Awful smell, like all competitors, just be careful not to inhale...

I usually decon my car twice a year after a strip wash, then I I use an IPA and wax the paint. Without prior decontamination, applying waxes would make swirls on the paint... Since I do not clay the paint (I have no polisher) I usually apply and remove IronX twice to do a good job. A 500 ml spray bottle will be necessary in the process for a SUV.

Great for Wheel care
February 22, 2020
I've been using this product for years and it does a fantastic job decontaminating wheels during annual wheel and wheel well spring cleaning.
  • easy to us
  • great iron decontamination
  • Made in South Korea. Nothing against South Korea, but they're not known for quality products. I do like the CarPro line and will keep an open mind

Carpro iron X remover is absolutely fantastic at removing bonded surface contaminants. It does so without staining trim, rubber plastics. Less expensive brands are not so. So I pay the extra money for the peace of mind. That only the surface contaminants will be removed from my car. When I'm done nothing else will be harmed.It's an acid based product and it smells bad.I don't use it everyday. Well ventilated area and there's nothing better to get the job done.

received the cherry scent version...
September 17, 2016
This review is for the Cherry Scent version...
It works similar or exactly like the original Iron X...
It does not smell like cherry, it smells terrible... really terrible.
  • purple blood everywhere!
  • I think this item is an outdoor only thing, and even then hope for a decent breeze as it smells pretty bad/harsh.

Great product. Smells awful but works like a charm

  • Smell bad
By Scott
Eh, rotten eggs
August 10, 2015
This stuff works well, but the smell is god awful. If you can withstand the smell of rotten eggs then definitely give it a try. I will use what I have until I run out and turn to another iron remover. The smell is just terrible. As for the price, all iron removers are priced about the same so you can pick your poison.

This product works great. My white Ford Ranger is a mess after Iowa winters, covered with the tiny orange specs from all the de icer used on the roads. I was ready to get a different colored vehicle untill I dicovered Iron X. I can decontaminate the truck in about an hour compared to 10-12 hours of hard labor with clay bar.

Great for cleaning rims
October 27, 2014
I used this mostly to clean my rims. Although my rims were really dirty and never washed from the previous owner, with 3-4 rounds of IronX I got most if not all the rims back to its OEM state. You'll need quite a bit of agitation on super dirty rims, but this product helps out a lot.
  • Allows you to see the liquid work and helps remove a lot of dirt and grease.
  • There is a strong odor for those with a sensitive nose. Suggest you work in a well ventilated area or wear a mask.
Great Product
August 4, 2014
Iron X does a awesome job, took care of the little orange spots on my vehicle. Spray on , wait till it turns purple ( three to five minutes) whip with a damp sponge, rinse well. Very Simple
  • Great Product
  • Smell might be a little strong for some

Wow what a great product. .Used it after clay baring and could not believe how it leached out the metal flecks from the road in the white paint.
