ULTIMA ELASTROFOAM PAINT CLEANING SYSTEM FAQ
Does Elastrofoam Replace Polishing?
No, the Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is not a substitute for polishing, but it can be used instead of polish to remove bonded contamination from paint. Unlike heavy polishes, the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System does not thin the clear coat finish. As a result, your car's paint finish will last years longer.
Is the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System the same as detailing clay?
Not quite. It serves the same purpose as detailing clay, and it's used like a detailing clay, but it has none of the shortcomings of detailing clay. Many people have reported back to us that they feel the Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is also easier to use than detailing clay.
How often should I use Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System?
We recommend a deep cleaning with the Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System at least twice a year before you polish. You can use the Elastrofoam sponge as often as you like to remove bonded contamination.
Will the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System scratch my paint?
No, but grit or heavy dirt on the sponge can! You must take car to keep the Elastrofoam sponge clean and use plenty of lubricant.
I see marks on my paint after using the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System, what is it?
When used in the sunshine or on a warm day, the rubberized coating on the sponge may transfer to your paint. Try to avoid using the sponge in hot day-time temperatures. The smudging is easy to remove by polishing with Ultima Paint Prep Plus.
Will Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System remove my coating of Ultima Paint Guard Plus paint sealant?
No! The lubrication will protect your sealant finish.
How many uses will I get from a single sponge?
This largely depends on how clean or rough your vehicle's paint finish is. Cars in new or like-new condition can be treated 20 to 25 times with a single Elastrofoam sponge. A vehicle with a lot of heavy contamination will extract a lot of life out of the sponge. The best way to extend the life of your Elastrofoam sponge is to keep it clean.
ULTIMA ELASTROFOAM PAINT CLEANING SYSTEM APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
Preparation: Prior to use you must thoroughly wash your vehicle. Failure to thoroughly wash and rinse your vehicle may lead to paint scratches from grit and other forms of hard contamination. You will achieve the best results with the Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System if your vehicle is clean and dry.
Application: Feel your paint to find areas of heavy bonded contamination and roughness. Work on a small area (2' by 2') at a time. Spray face of the rubber face of the Elastrofoam sponge and the area to be cleaned with Ultima Paint Cleaning Gel. Proper lubrication is essential. Never use dry. Lightly rub the Elastrofoam sponge over the area to be cleaned. Heavy rubbing (pressure) is not required. After several passes over the area, dry with a clean, soft microfiber towel. Inspect by feeling for remaining contamination. The surface should feel perfectly smooth, like glass. Repeat if necessary.
Frequency of Use: The Ultima Elastrofoam Paint Cleaning System is a very gentle polish and may be used as often as needed to remove bonded contamination. Use twice a year, at a minimum, as a pre-treatment prior to polishing with Ultima Paint Prep Plus. Use as needed to spot treat to remove insect remains, tar, oil and other visible contamination not removed through regular washing.
Elastrofoam Sponge Care: Keep your Elastrofoam sponge clean. During use, rinse frequently in a bucket of soapy water and squeeze to remove excess water. Store in a cool, dry area. Do not allow the sponge to sit in the hot sun.
