Gyeon Q2M Iron, 500mL
Gyeon Q2M Iron is an intensive cleaner designed to dissolve brake dust and iron-rich fallout upon contact. Fallout bonds to exterior automotive surfaces both physically (by charge attraction) and chemically (by electrolysis), and typically contains ferrous compounds and particulates derived from industrial and commercial activities. As such contaminants gradually accumulate on bodywork, surface roughness gradually increases to the point where it can be detected by touch, whilst the reflectivity of the finish and the ability of the paint to sheet water properly gradually diminishes. Furthermore, as such contaminants slowly oxidise and corrode, caustic compounds may leach out and stain underlying surfaces. The periodic removal of such contaminants is therefore an important part of detailing, and should be performed once or twice a year.
If you’re familiar with detailing clay you’ll know that it’s designed to remove bonded surface contaminants, but what it never says on the tin is that it often struggles to fully remove ferrous compounds and iron particulates. By working chemically rather than physically, Gyeon Q2M Iron immediately reacts with ferrous compounds and iron particulates and reduces them to a water soluble complex which can then be easily rinsed away. This process can be seen to be working with the naked eye, as the initially transparent solution gradually turns purple as it progressively acquires freshly dissolved iron species.
