Pinnacle Clay Lubricant

Pinnacle Clay Lubricant
A Lubricant and cleaner designed to remove dust and residue from paint finishes!

Clay bars quickly remove overspray and paint contamination leaving the cleaned surface "smooth as glass". To work properly, all clays require a lubricant. Soapy water will work in a pinch but it provides only minimal paint protection and the detergents in some soaps can break down the clay causing it to disintegrate.

Pinnacle Clay Lubricant is specially designed to work with all clay bars, natural or synthetic (new Poly-clays).

Pinnacle Clay Lubricant is wetter than water to provide an ultra-slick surface on which clay can glide easily.Clay Lubricant creates a microscopic barrier between the paint and the clay cleaning material. The VOC compliant, high lubricity formula prevents loosened contamination from scratching delicate clear coat finishes yet it will not break down or degrade the integrity of the clay.

The high lubricity formula is a blend of oils and wetting agents that are literally wetter than water. Pinnacle Clay Lubricant will not alter the paint surface in any way. Once you’ve clayed, wipe away the lubricant. The paint surface will be impeccably clean and silky smooth, the perfect foundation for a coat of Souverän™ Wax.

  1. Use clay on a clean vehicle. It does not necessarily have to be dry.
  2. Mist a small area, about 2 sq. ft., with Pinnacle Clay Lubricant.
  3. Rub the clay bar across the wet surface in a back and forth motion. There is no need to apply pressure. The clay will grab at first. This indicates that the clay is pulling
    contaminants out of the paint.
  4. When the clay glides smoothly, the paint is clean. Wipe away the remaining lubricant with a clean, soft microfiber towel.
  5. If clay residue remains, mist the area again with Clay Lubricant and wipe away the residue.
  6. Reshape the clay as needed to reveal a clean portion. If you drop the bar on the ground, discard it. Using heavily soiled clay is dangerous to your paint.
Clay needs to be reshaped periodically to reveal a fresh side. This same reshaping technique works with all detailing clay.
7. Once you’ve clayed your entire vehicle, apply a coat of Souverän™ or Signature Series II to protect the freshly cleaned paint. Clay will remove all existing wax.

8. To store your clay, mist it with lubricant and seal it in an airtight plastic bag or container.

To use the Pinnacle Polishin' Pal with clay, mist the clay disc with Pinnacle Clay Lubricant.

Mist the paint surface with Clay Lubricant and glide the detailing clay back and forth gently.

When using the Pinnacle Polishin' Pal with or Ultra Poly Clay, mist the Clay Disc with Pinnacle Clay Lubricant. Flatten the clay onto the disc. Mist the surface to be clayed with lubricant and continue as directed.

Amazing product
February 11, 2016
Used this lubricant and clay on my '02 T-Bird and my '15 Bentley Flying Spur. First time laying and was amazed how easy it was. Followed up with sealant and carnival and the cars wish with no effort and water rolls right off, almost dry themselves.

Makes Clay Barring much simpler. However there has got to be a way to make it more affordable. This bottle only goes so far. Next time I may by in Bulk that usually helps with cost.
ease of clay barring
Cost of product in smaller quantities.

Simply the Best
April 25, 2007
Got this lube when it was bundled with Pinnacle's Poly Clay. Was kind of skeptical at first using such an expensive clay lubricant comared to quick detailers. But after using the lubricant and claying my hood I fell in love with this product. Provides plenty of lubricity between the clay and the paint, and easily wipes away. You want to be generous to provide enough for the clay to work, but you don't need nearly as much compared to a standard quick detailer. I liked it so much I bought the 64 oz refill to keep me stocked for quite a while.
