We are proud to present Iron X Lemon Scent which has a less harsh odour as compared to the Iron X Cherry Odor formula.
Iron X Lemon Scent is a new formula, more effective and smells of lemons.
Highly effective, acid-free and pH balanced (6~7pH) car paint, wheels & glass cleaner (safe for all wheels including aluminium/Chromes/Anodized and alloys). This formulation is also effective and safe for use on all car surfaces and will not deteriorate clear coats. This preventative measure puts a stop to corrosion, IronX contains unique chemical ingredients that effectively dissolve the sintered iron by forming a water-soluble iron complex. No other method cleans paint and wheels as deeply as IronX.
The IronX Paint and wheels Decontamination System were developed as a method of removing paint contamination beyond what can be removed by washing or claying !!. If you are familiar with detail clay, you know it is capable of removing above-surface contaminants that have bonded to the paint. The IronX is designed to remove what lies below the paint surface as well as above.
Airborne chemical compounds and ferrous particles (particles containing iron) actually penetrate the paint and create corrosive compounds that eat deep into the paint’s sub-layers or paint’s pin-holes. This is a gradual process that often is not evident until it’s too late. Claying does not remove the entire particle which will continue to spread beneath the surface if not dissolved.
During the use of your vehicle, brake dust and road grime become sintered to the surface of the car paint, rims and wheels due to the high-temperature conditions they are normally exposed to. Brake dust contains high levels of iron and once sintered to the rim, becomes extremely difficult to dissolve or remove without the use of harsh chemicals. IronX opens up the paint’s pores to release ferrous particles and neutralize caustic compounds that have developed in the paint’s subsurface. Ongoing damage is immediately stopped and future damage is prevented by removing the ferrous particles.
IronX sprays on as a transparent liquid. As the cleansing liquid begins to work into the dirt and grime, the formula begins to turn purple/ red. The purple/red colouration is the IronX Cleaner forming a bond to the sintered iron on the car paint and wheel and changing its state to a water-soluble complex for easy removal. Stubborn, baked on grime may take a small amount of agitation. Rinse car paint and wheels thoroughly with a power washer and wipe dry.
IronX is used by body shops for pre-cleaning prior to detailing and by dealerships for new and used car prep. It is proven to deliver a clean, glassy smooth vehicle that is protected from the harmful effects of paint contamination. No other is as fast and effective at removing multi-layer paint and wheel contamination.

A. Use outside or with sufficient ventilation.
B. Use latex or Nitrile gloves, and face protection.
C. If there is an inordinate amount of tree sap, tar, other organic material, wax, or sealants on the vehicle I recommend you strip them first with TarX so Iron X can attack the ferrous particles without any interference. This is not required but is how I like to do it for the best results.
D. For best results apply to a mostly dry surface. A few drops of water are ok.
1. Shake the bottle.
2. You can cover the surface with Iron X by spraying it everywhere but that can be wasteful. I recommend that you spray as needed and spread it with a small sponge or applicator to cover the entire surface. You may also consider using an atomizer-type spray bottle or HVLP gun. In any case, evenly cover the surfaces you wish to decontaminate. The product is strong so you don’t have to be wasteful. Just make sure it contacts the entire surface.
3. Allow the product to dwell for 5 minutes in the shade. Do not allow it to dry in the sun. On light-coloured paints, you will see the product dissolving ferrous particles as it turns colour. On darker coloured paints everything is happening in exactly the same way. It’s simply more difficult for you to view the colour-changing effect. I have read people saying the product works better on lighter-coloured cars but that is illogical and is not the case. It works the same regardless of car colour.
4. After allowing to dwell take a damp (not soaked) grout or other paint-safe sponge (or other media if you prefer) and agitate the surface.
5. Thoroughly rinse the surface.
Don’t forget to rinse your media out also. I like to have a dedicated Iron X sponge but that isn’t necessary.
IRON X FACTS AND FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How do iron particles appear on your car surface and where?
Iron particles are all around us, and of course on our cars after travelling through the environment. They can be made from your car braking, driving near other cars, big trucks, train rails, industrial zones etc. They adhere to the car surface and once they ‘stick’ to your paint due to their sharp edges together with sunshine they start to bake into the soft car paint layer where they oxidize and rust.
How to prevent iron dust from etching your paint?
It’s almost impossible to prevent the irons to stick on the surface, but it has been proven that inorganic coatings (such as Cquartz & C1) that have self-cleaning effects can reduce the quantity of iron that adheres to the surface.
How to remove iron particles from the surface?
There are few options. Clay bar is one of them however claying will remove most of the irons by shaving them, which leaves some underneath the surface where it cannot reach. Also, clay could possibly mar your paint with micro scratches together with the iron it catches. Another option is oxalic acid solutions. Though it may remove iron you can’t be sure it is safe on paint, which depends on dilution (low pH ), and it’s not safe to use for your own health and environment. The third option is Iron X, a pH-neutral product, which reacts only with iron particles which it dissolves.
Why does it change its colour?
Iron X changes colour to red/purple when coming in contact with iron particles, this is due to a chemical reaction between the chemicals and iron. However, some other products change colours as well. The change in colour does not necessarily mean a product is dissolving iron. There are very cheap chemicals that change their character simply by contact with air.
Why do we now use special full plastic spray heads?
In the past, we faced complaints about the changing colour inside the bottle. this was due to the metal spring inside the spray head, which most triggers use including the so-called chemical resistant types. These springs are mostly made in China and have rust on them from their creation. That is why we use only plastic springs inside these triggers. This way no more possibility of reaction with any irons until the product is used.
Will Iron X stain chrome wheels or chrome trims?
No, it’s completely safe to use on any chrome wheels, trim, or bare aluminium wheels. There is only one condition: Do not let it dry under sunlight
Will Iron X discolour wheel weights?
Yes, it will. Wheel weights are made from lead, Iron X will change the lead color to green. However light agitation will recover the original colour.
Will Iron X affect brake calipers?
For most high end calipers it will not affect them however we have heard from customers in the past that Iron X can affect the paint colour of low-quality acrylic painted calipers. For this reason, we advise you to be more careful not to spray on them.
Will Iron X remove wax from car paint?
Yes, if it’s a highly organic oil type it will affect the wax properties. If it’s a synthetic polymer sealant it won’t affect it much. On Cquartz or other inorganic coatings, it won’t affect them at all. In fact, it is even recommended for use on them.
Does Iron X remove tar spots as well?
No, Iron X reacts only with iron particles.
Is Iron X safe to use on 3M films venture shields?
Yes, there is no problem at all using it on clear bra’s and others.
