3D BDX safely removes brake dust off your car’s wheels. It’s also a wide-spectrum chemical contamination remover for the exterior of your car painted body panels.
What is it? - 3D BDX is a spray-on product formulated to chemically dissolve and remove a wide spectrum of chemical contamination off the exterior of your car including wheels, body panels and other exterior surfaces. This product is specifically formulated to be safe on modern clearcoat finishes as well as all types of wheels, including painted, chrome, polished and coated aluminum. 3D BDX is Acid-Free, and pH balanced. 3D BDX is also VOC complaint, green technology and biodegradable making it an earth-friendly car detailing product.
Color Changing Effect - If contamination is present on the wheels or the painted body panels, there’s a chemical reaction that takes place when 3D BDX chemically dissolves the contamination. The visual appearance of this process is the 3D BDX (and the dissolved contamination), turn a dark, purple red color. This is a sign contamination is in fact present. The good news is by dissolving the contamination so that it can be flushed off with rinse water, you have stopped any corrosion taking place on the finish of your car’s wheels or on your car’s paint. Considering how thin modern car paint is – it’s important to keep it clean and contamination-free. After washing the car, you can move onto the next step knowing your car’s wheels and paint are clean and free from any chemical contamination.
What if I don’t see any color changing effect? - After spraying your car’s wheels or any of your car’s body panels, if you do not see any color changing taking place in the spray on the surface, this is even better news. It means there is no contamination and more important – this means there was no corrosion taking place on the finish of your car’s wheels or on the exterior paint. Believe it or not, even though everyone loves to see the color-changing effect, also called the bleeding-effect, it’s better for your wheels and paint to see nothing at all. And now you have the confidence to move onto the next step knowing your car’s wheels and paint are clean and free from any chemical contamination.
What does it do? - After spraying onto a surface, it seeks out and dissolves a wide spectrum of chemical contamination so that it can then be washed and/or rinsed off your vehicle’s wheels and/or body panels. Including,
- Brake Dust
- Iron Contamination
- Traffic Pollution
- Industrial Fallout
- Road Film
When do you use it? - For cleaning brake dust off your car’s wheels and also for chemically decontaminating the body panels that make up your car’s exterior.
Wheels - Use 3D BDX anytime you wash your car. Every time you use your brakes, the friction between the brake pads and the brake rotors creates brake dust as your brakes wear down with each use. This brake dust builds-up on your car’s wheels. Because wheels naturally become dirty with brake dust it’s normal to use a brake dust remover every time you wash your car regardless of the type of wash process you use.
Body Panels – the exterior of your car - There are two categories of car washing, Prep Wash and Maintenance Wash. Generally speaking, you only use 3D BDX when doing a Prep Wash and skip the 3D BDX step for body panels when doing a Maintenance Wash.
