CarPro TRIX Tar and Iron Remover 1 Liter

Save time by removing tar and iron at the same time!

CarPro TRIX Tar and Iron Remover combines two paint decontamination steps into one, saving you time and money! This product is designed specifically for pro detailers to prepare vehicles for detailing using less time, materials, and labor. CarPro TRIX is a strong degreaser, cleaner, tar remover and iron remover for virtually any exterior automotive surface.

Airborne chemical compounds and ferrous (iron-containing) particles penetrate auto paint and create corrosive compounds that eat into the paint's sublayers. Detailing clay removes the particles but it doesn't remove their effects - corrosion may already be creeping under the paint's surface. TRIX Tar and Iron Remover dissolves iron particles and tar to protect the paint finish from their destructive effects.

CarPro TRIX is a combination of Iron X plus special chemicals that remove tar and naphtha base components. What this means for pro detailers is that one product removes a variety of harmful contaminants from the paint. Meanwhile, TRIX degreases the auto surface to prepare it for polishing. After using TRIX, the paint will be impeccably clean.

CarPro TRIX has a pH neutral base chemical. It is safe on most auto surfaces. Use it on wheels, paint, glass, plastic trim, aluminum, and chrome. (Warning: do not let TRIX dry on plastics!)

CarPro TRIX Tar and Iron Remover is extremely easy to use. It does the work for you! Just spray it on, wait, and then wipe or rinse it off.

Professional detailers and auto restoration specialists will save a tremendous amount of time and labor with this single product. CarPro TRIX Tar and Iron Remover cuts prep time in half.

  1. Shake very well before spraying product each time.
  2. Spray on the surface and let product react for 5 minutes maximum.
  3. Rinse off or wipe with a soft sponge or microfiber towel.

Didn't do much for me
October 5, 2015
If your car is reasonably well maintained (weekly/bi-weekly proper washes + keeping up on protection) to begin with, this product is probably a waste of time and money. I'm doing a winter prep right now. After a good soapy Dawn wash I decided to use TRIX to get rid of any leftover tar/iron contaminants. Either my car didn't have any, or the product failed to dissolve them. I have a light, silver car and any reaction with contaminants would have been easy to spot. The only place I saw any reaction at all was on the wheels (not much), but for that particular use, there are better products out there.
May be good if you have a seriously neglected car.
Poor sprayer, squirts instead of mists.

Works as advertised
May 7, 2015
It took me 2 applications in some areas but easily removed tar and the rail dust that plagues my white paint. Anything it didn't remove then easily came off with the clay bar. What use to take hours turned into only a couple.
Way easier to use than any other product that I've tried
Strong smell

Great rust remover!
December 17, 2014
I used Tri-X on some rust spots before claying. It worked great to remove brake dust before washing the wheels too.
Simple to use. Very effective with no scrubbing required.
A little toxic smelling.

This stuff is awesome. Cleans tar and iron deposits off of white paint like no ones business. Great on wheels too! I don't know bout the pH level on this. It smells VERY toxic. I use rubber gloves when handling it, and considering using a mask or some type. BUT don't get me wrong, it does the job!
Does what it should. Works fast.
Expensive. STRONG ODOR

Makes short work of brake dust
August 8, 2014
I love this product for use on brake dust. BMW OEM brakes spew dust onto the wheels faster than I can keep up with it, especially in north east winters. Spring cleaning, this stuff takes off the brake dust in a few minutes per wheel. Ceramic almost dust-less brake pads going on this weekend, but i am sure this product is still going to be in my arsenal of cleaning supplies.
Works great on brake dust Saves a lot of time scrubbing

Very interesting product
July 26, 2014
I'm not a young guy, but honestly, I had never heard of 'rail dust'. In preparation for waxing, I very thoroughly washed my 2 year old white F150. After drying, I found a million little flecks of tar and reddish-orange dots on the paint. I was not about to wax over all that stuff. A little on-line research informed me about 'rail dust' and 'industrial fallout', so I started looking for a product to deal with it. This one seemed to be what I needed. The following weekend, I washed the truck again, then used this product. It really does work. It actually works better on the rail dust than it does on the tar, so when I've used this up, I'll order the iron remover separately and use a separate tar remover. It did remove all traces of the rail dust, and left me with a paint surface that looked perfectly clean. It worked faster for me than advertised. I think the longest I let it dwell on the surface was about 3-4 minutes, and that was almost always long enough. A couple of caveats: - On a white or light-colored vehicle, this product is very easy to use. I think on a black or other dark color, it would be much more difficult to use (it would be just as effective, but much more difficult to observe the action). - This product WILL soften rubber or plastics, and since you apply it by spraying, you WILL get some of it onto rubber or plastic mouldings and trim. Remove it from those surfaces immediately with a damp rag, and work on small areas so you can rinse those areas quickly before the synthetics are affected. I can't see going through the effort of masking or taping off all the plastics and rubber on a late model vehicle, but if you work quickly and carefully, you can avoid any damage to those items. - You will basically need to wash your vehicle, then use this product, and then wash it again before waxing. (After you've gone to all this effort, you would be silly to not complete the job by waxing). I used about half of the 1-liter bottle on the F150, which of course is a large vehicle, but I did everything except the roof. I think it's a good product, even though next time I'll order the iron remover separately. After waxing, my truck looked far better than new.
Very effective, relatively easy to use.
You must be careful around rubber and plastics.

Once you use TRIX before you clay and compound you will be hooked and wondering how you ever got along with out it.

Works great but could not get the stubborn spots.
April 30, 2014
Worked great at covering a large area and removing tar from difficult to reach areas. Really like how the color activation lets one know they're treating the right areas. Unfortunately some stubborn spots refused to be removed and had to get the more intense products. TRIX was a big time saver regaurdless and I would recommend to others.

Extremely Effective
February 22, 2014
Fantastic product, spray on and wait for it to turn purple then rinse off the dissolved iron particles. Bits of tar may take additional light agitation with a sponge or wash mitt, but be careful because this stuff stinks and should only be used in a well ventilated area. I also suspect this product removes any wax or sealant on the vehicle but that isn't really an issue because if I'm using this stuff to decontaminate the paint I'm going to add a layer of protection after. I would definitely purchase this product again.
