Product Description

The CarPro Tar X Tar and Adhesive Remover is far more than an ordinary degreaser so don't underestimate just how amazing this product is. It's a very strong yet relatively gentle product that can quickly remove not only tar but also asphalt, bug smear, tire marks, stubborn adhesives, road grime, brake dust and so much more. When you spray it on tar you can literally see the tar start to dissolve within seconds which saves you from scrubbing with too much arm pressure or using aggressive clay bar treatments.

To explain why this formula is so advanced we'll start of with how it's made. Tar X utilizes all of it's cleaning power from the solvents extracted from orange peels, which contain no chlorinated solvents or harsh chemicals so it's non corrosive. The number one ingredient in many cleaning product is actually water or fillers but Tar X boasts 60% active ingredients and a thicker viscosity that clings to the paint and won't run as fast.

Another original characteristic is the "glow color tracer" which you have to almost see to fully believe. When you spray it on the paint it leaves a neon green glow on the paint so you can see exactly where you have sprayed. In fact this neon glow will quite literally glow in the dark if you use it at night, but it rinses clean with just a quick spray from the hose.

To apply it just spray it on the paint and wait about 1 - 2 minutes before rinsing it off or for stubborn build ups agitate with a soft sponge and rinse clean afterward. During use avoid direct sun and don't leave it on the exterior for more than 7 - 10 minutes, especially plastic parts. The only other precautions for the vehicle is to not use it on acrylic paints and work in a ventilated area. It's safe on fresh paint, vinyl films, chrome trim, vinyl/plastic trim, etc/, again just don't leave it on excessively or dry up. After you apply it you'll be amazed at how much this formula can remove from the exterior because the tar literally melts away where as many other formulas just soften it up at best. Please remember despite the strong cleaning power you are using a citrus based cleaning product that is non corrosive.

If you choose to follow up with a clay bar you will have saved yourself a lot of time and the now clean surface will enhance the results of any polish, glaze, sealant or wax used afterward. The CarPro Tar X is truly an incredible product that is going to save you time and improve your results so pick some up today!

This stuff is probably the second best product I've ever used in my life of detailing automobiles (right after but still hand in hand with Iron X), wash you car - do your Iron X first - spray this on and watch it work, literally just watch all the bugs and tar stuck to your car melt away. Follow up with a nice wax and your good to go. A+++ product!

Recently did a vehicle that was used for racing and there was lots of rubber from the wheels around the wheel wells. This product in combination with a plastic razor blade worked wonders. This is also another great product for when it comes to removing those annoying dealership badges and stickers. Always keep this on hand when it comes to exterior details.
