Remove insects before they damage the paintwork
Insect dirt doesn’t just look nasty – it is an organic „paint destroyer“ that, especially when exposed to the sun, can cause severe damage to the paintwork. And that can prove very expensive, the longer they stick on the paintwork, the deeper the residues eat their way into the paintwork surface.
As a rule, this is less of a problem in the city. But after a typical journey on the motorway or country roads, it is advisable to help out the paintwork with an effective special cleaner, that is also gentle on materials, such as SONAX Insect star. With its practical trigger spray the cleaner is easy to apply, which allows its intensive cleaning effect to develop.
Good to know: thanks to its slightly viscous consistency, the formula also works well on vertical surfaces. If necessary, you can wipe over a little – but only with a special insect sponge for the paintwork, which does not cause scratches. Dirt contamination from bird droppings and tree sap are irritating and also damaging to paintwork. A specialist product like SONAX Tree sap remover is the remedy here, and should be applied as fast as possible, before the dirt adheres so stubbornly that it attacks the paintwork surface.
Incidentally: Effective paintwork protection also forms a barrier against organic „paint destroyers“. For this we recommend the polymer sealant Protect+Shine or the classic Brilliant wax 1 from the SONAX XTREME product series.
„So my car will be sitting extremely pretty then“ – the products from the SONAX XTREME series are car care of the finest, no compromises: Where it says XTREME, you can be sure that these are especially high performance products, perfect for the whole car, for exterior & paintwork, interior & windscreen, as well as wheel rims & tyres.
Unpainted plastic components should not be neglected when maintaining the car, otherwise they will prematurely fade and may even become brittle.
The anti-glare headlight lenses have to withstand a lot: climatic influences, UV radiation, acid rain, de-icing salt and road dirt, with time they will ensure that the plastic is matt and yellowed.
