What you should know about alloy wheel cleaners
A non-acid, non-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner that quickly and in over 90% of cases touch less reactive wheel cleaner.
In most cases steel and alloy wheels are either lacquered or painted these coatings protect the metallic surface from corrosion and provide attractive finishes to automotive road wheels.
As vehicles brake the dust generated from pads discs and drums is at elevated temperatures, amongst this hot cloud are thousands of particles of hot metallic particles, these bombard the wheel finishes and effectively embed themselves in the finish.
Once lodged they are extremely difficult to remove, acid based alloy wheel cleaners attack these metal particles and effectively attack the particle reducing its size allowing the particle and dirt clinging to it to escape, caustic wheel cleaners are less effective than acid ones on brake dust but can attack organic coatings such as lacquers and paints on short exposure they attack any organic matter accumulated around the embedded particle and produce a seemingly clean surface, however with continued use they will dull and diminish the coating, leaving a wheel surface that needs refinishing.
Safer and more effective auto-wheel works in an entirely different way, and has proven itself by winning independent tests conducted by the UK's biggest selling automotive magazine even against powerful acid and alkaline cleaners. See the test here!
auto-wheel's pH neutral formulations reacts with the oxidising surface of the metallic particle rendering it water soluble, the rapid removal of this microscopically rusted surface reduces the embedded particle size and releases it from the surface, unlike acids this method is harmless to the wheel's finish and in fact so fast it cleans more effectively - the reaction is seen by a rapid colour change from clear to deep red, after which a simply hose or rinse leaves the wheel spotless. In severe cases a brush can be used to assist the process.
The 1 litre auto-wheel is supplied with both a trigger spray and a wheel brush.
How to Use
Simply spray auto-wheel liberally on to your wheels.
Avoid directly spraying the centre caps of the wheels.
Wait for the colour changing reaction, normally 3-5 minutes depending on how contaminated the wheel is.
Now simply wash the wheel down with a hose or jetwash.
How to use auto-wheel from Bilt-Hamber
"One of our friends in Canada [Alexis Car Detailing] has been nice enough, and keen enough, to make a demonstration video on auto-wheel. auto-wheel is a non-acid, on-alkaline alloy wheel cleaner. It is completely safe to use and very easy to apply. It has won the Best Buy Wheel Cleaner Award from English car magazine giant Auto Express 4 times in as many years, most recently in April 2015!" - Bilt Hamber
