The G3 Body Prep Clay Mitt uses an advanced rubber polymer technology to remove ingrained, bonded contaminants such as dirt, bugs, tar spots and other dulling pollutants from paintwork, windscreens and even headlights.
What is it?
A surface preparation clay in mitt form. Designed to be faster and longer lasting than traditional clay bars with the added bonus of being able to rinse clean if dropped.
How we Tested it?
We have purchased in excess of double figures of these mitts now and used them heavily in the paint correction preparation side of the detailing business. We have used them with dedicated clay lube as well as a water and shampoo mix as recommended and observed ease of use, surface marring and final panel result.
We Didn’t like:
We both love and hate the clay mitt as a concept, not necessarily just the G3 offering. We constantly use them on a daily basis, but wouldn’t necessarily recommend them. Confused? To clarify, the only time we would use a clay mitt is if you plan on correcting paint by machine afterwards anyway. If this is the case, they are a fantastic time saving option. The G3 mitt is one of the better made clay mitts we have come across and is a very capable contaminant remover while offering good value for money. We really would recommend however if you are not correcting after use to use traditional clay as it is safer and easier to see when to stop using the clay. For the detailer, the G3 mitt is a sound purchase and money earner in time saved. For the home user who may just be looking to clay prior to protecting paintwork, approach with caution.
