Carpro IronX (500ml) - Shinearama

Although not advertised as such the Iron-X now in stock @ Shinearama is the revised version with a new fragrance. Also comes with a better spray head than previous. Anyone who has used this product in the past will verify that the smell was vile, and although now improved and sold as smelling of "cherry" it is more like strong Ribena! so much better than the old product though. The head is another great improvement, as the old orange spray head had a tendancy to block up quite quickly.

Great for decontaminating heavy brake dust :cool:







I've used Iron-X back to back against Wolf's Brake Duster and it is far superior, but be mindful it is more expensive. Both are great, but I favour the Iron-X.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Matt, I used Wolfs brake duster last weekend. I had alot of small black flecks on the alloys which normal shampoo would not remove. Just spraying on wolfs didnt remove the flecks I had to agitate with a toothbrush. Wolfs removed 95% of the flecks with some still visible. Ive bought some Iron X and intend to use this weekend. Hopefully this will remove the rest of the brake dust spots.

And how does it taste? ;)

Going to have to give this a go as the inside of my alloys look like they've been powder coated black...

Does this stuff just clean or do I need a sealant? I get fed up of brake dusts only have to do a few miles and you can see dust
Just a cleaner mate and brilliant it is, you'll need to seal your wheels with appropriate waxes or sealants to help prevent brake dust build up again.

Iron-X is far more potent, so it should remove the larger / deeper iron particles :)

And how does it taste? ;)
F**kin' awful mate! I got a bit of splashback on my lip once, wiped it away with a microfibre, and within about 30seconds I could taste it! made me want to vom! :facepalm:

any one recommend a good sealer. Can I clean and seal without taking wheels off. I live on a hill so cant use jack
yes clean with ironx then thoroughly rinse off and dry. buy yourself some optiseal, a great sealant, just wipe on and leave it;)

To answer the wheel sealing question:
YES..Optiseal is fantastic on wheels..But Ive run out
So I switched to Wolfs Nano (Clean & Coat)
This stuff is a great wheel cleaner..BUT...When you wash it off, it leaves a layer of protection behind..That WORKS!!
So the best of both!!

Thanks Robbo looking for all in 1 if poss. Also looking for tyre dresser.

Wolf's Chemicals detailing products - Nano wheel cleaner


At Wolf's we don't like to be told "…it can't be done" which is why we've created Clean & Coat - the first wheel cleaner in the industry to be integrated with nano technology. This rim cleaner is tough enough to remove caked-on brake dust, but with a pH value of only 5 - 5.5 it's safe enough for use on ceramic brake systems, as well. When the contamination moves out, nano technology moves in leaving a solid layer of protection on your precious wheels, which makes maintaining them even easier.

Meguiars Endurance IMO is a great product.
