Optimum FerreX

Recommended Posts

Optimum Ferrex™ is designed to dissolve and remove ferrous oxides from wheels and painted surfaces quickly by bonding and dissolving them away with minimal effort. Furthermore, Optimum Ferrex™ will dissolve and remove other surface contaminants such as tar and wax at the same time.

Directions for wheels:

  1. Avoid using on hot surfaces. Wash wheels to remove excess contaminants.
  2. Spray Optimum Ferrex™ directly on wheels and allow 1 - 2 minutes to fully dissolve ferrous oxides.
  3. Agitate with a soft bristle brush as needed.
  4. Rinse off with plenty of water.

Directions for painted surfaces:

  1. Wash with Optimum No Rinse™ Wash & Shine or Optimum Car Wash before applying Optimum Ferrex™.
  2. Use on a cool surface and out of direct sunlight. Spray Optimum Ferrex™ directly on painted surface and allow 1 - 2 minutes to fully dissolve ferrous oxide. Agitate with a microfiber towel or soft sponge if neccessary.
  3. Rinse off with pleny of water.

It sure does. More like bleeds. We use it in the shop and if a car is really bad it turns the floor purple. Mainly wheels.

 

We don't have the problems most big city have with pollution. When it's sprayed on the paint you will see it after a couple minuets. It's a very slick feeling product. Like soap. I've been playing around with the Opti-Clay bar and FerreX to see if it damages the clay when used together. I've found no problems yet with the combination.

Yes, you can use either product to rinse FerreX. In a forum test, FerreX was left to dry intentionally with no issues. The tester warned this is not proper application and I want to repeat that Optimum does not recommend leaving FerreX on the surface to dry.

Present products I use to remove iron deposits have a strong chemical odor. I have to store these products in a tall sealed plastic container (live in a condo, no garage).

A given fact in the nature of what these products contain or has this changed or been improved upon in some way with FerreX?

Just curious, I'll still buy the product to stay in the family.

Ron - would Ferrex harm the integrity of Gloss Coat v1?

depending on why you've lost beading, yes, FerreX can restore it. Power Clean is a more generic cleaning agent but not as effective on metal deposits. For all purpose cleaning Power Clean is the better choice and offers more flexibility through dilution ratios.
