CarPro Iron X Iron Remover 1 Liter

Remove harmful iron deposits and protect your paint!

Iron X by CarPro is an acid-free, pH-balanced iron remover that decontaminates auto paint and wheels. Iron X prevents the spread of iron-related damage to protect your vehicle from paint system failure. Your vehicle constantly faces unseen threats. Remove them with Iron X!

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.

The only way to truly remove ferrous particles is with a dedicated iron remover like Iron X. Iron X opens up the paint's pores to release iron particles and to neutralize the caustic compounds that have developed as a result of the particle. In one step, you can eliminate the cause and its effects. Put an immediate stop to paint damage before it's too late.

Wheel before using IronX

IronX turns purple as it removes iron-containing particles.

Wheel after IronX

Iron X is excellent on automotive paint and safely cleans clear coats. Iron X is highly recommended for all clear coated alloy wheels. Brake dust and road grime become baked onto wheels. Brake dust contains high  levels of iron and can quickly pit clear coated wheels. Iron X easily removes ferrous brake dust to protect your wheels from further damage. Iron X can save you the cost of replacing your factory wheels!

Note: Iron X should not be used on bare metal parts, brake calipers, wheel balancing weights, or SMART paint repairs. Mask off these areas. Avoid letting Iron X dry on any surface.

Iron X is easy to use and you can see it working! Iron X is a clear solution in the bottle but it turns purple when it comes into contact with sintered iron particles. Iron X turns the iron into a water soluble complex for easy removal. After five minutes of dwell time, wipe down the surface and rinse thoroughly. After using Iron X, you can polish and clay your vehicle as you normally would. Always apply a coat of wax or paint sealant after using Iron X.

Proper vehicle care means cleaning above and below the paint's surface. Iron X Iron Remover removes iron particles and their effects to keep the paint clean and healthy.


1. Wash the car or wheels surfaces, make sure surface is in cool temp.
2. Shake well, spray on the surface. Rub it in with damp sponge thoroughly.
Wait 5 min. while contaminants change its color to purple/red. Wipe off with damp soft sponge. Don’t let the IronX dry completely on surface!
3. Rinse well or power wash the whole surface. The vehicle is ready to clay now.

Does exactly what it's supposed to!
Great stuff. Erases rail dust with ease. Just work it into your wash routine and you'll never need to clay-bar rail dust again! Smells great...I dunno what all these other people are talking about! ;) A bit pricey, but honestly it's worth it for the ease of use and time saved. Out of curiosity, I tried diluting it 50/50 with water and it still tore through rail dust with ease. I will continue doing so, as it saves me money and still gets great results...two important things when you're detailing professionally!

First time using Iron.X
Great stuff, appeared to do a thorough job of attacking fallout. The product has a terrible odor, but that aside, its worth it. When using a sponge to help it work (after 3 to 5 minutes), it seemed to have a great deal of wash product that helped to clean the car finish. I'm transferring the remainder of the product to a separate spray bottle and slightly diluted it. Would recommend.
ProsWorks quickly, able to see it in action
ConsSeems to dry on the surface quickly even though car was in shade

IronX saved my reputation
Great product: does exactly what is advertised! I recently bought a new 2014 Honda Accord at dusk (BAD idea... buy it in daylight to inspect paint!!), and found rail dust a few days later. The service manager (who used to detail cars) looked at me like I was crazy when I told him about the rail dust issues. In the end, I had the dealership pay to send it to a great local detailer to have it decontaminated. HOWEVER, somewhere in the process, my instructions were not followed, and the detail shop skipped the decon. and went with a clay bar first, then a cleaner/sealant. My car was left with hundreds of extremely fine, yet very deep scratches, likely from the iron being dragged all over the paint surface during claying. Being a former detailer myself, it was a nightmare. I decided to take matters into my own hands, and embarked on a decontamination (using IronX for the first time) to coating detailing process. After washing, I applied IronX to the trunk area... and almost exactly 5 minutes later, was rewarded with the characteristic purple bleeding of the product reacting to iron. After a few more panels, I figured out that the LSP was not fully stripped. After successful stripping, I reapplied IronX, and found even more reactions taking place. Many pictures were taken, and I now had the evidence I needed to prove that the car had in fact, been heavily contaminated with ferrous slag before I bought the car. Left behind many pits as well, as evidence of the rail dust melting into the clear and color coats, and of the product doing its job well! So, it just shows to go that one should probably decontaminate before claying. On top of that, clay barring does NOT remove iron contamination "safely" and effectively 100% of the time. It removes some, but can drag these across the surface, resulting in scratches. However, deeply embedded ferrous particles like rail dust slag, will likely either be left behind, or partially removed. Can't wait to show that service manager the incrimination!
Pros+Incredible product! +It works +A fraction of the price of other decon systems (such as valugard) +Safer for paint than acidic/basic decon systems +Hasn't damaged any automotive surfaces in my experiences (used as directed) +"Cherry" scent is something that I can live with
Cons-Need to have 100% of any LSPs stripped before application to be completely effective, which can sometimes require polish/paint cleaners. DO NOT SIMPLY USE DAWN dish soap... it doesn't effectively strip tough sealants in my experience, and IMO doesn't provide a safe amount of lubricity. Wasted 5oz. learning this lesson! Still works on large ferrous particles (such as rail dust) with LSP in place, but you will likely have more contamination left behind. Would love to see CarPro invent a formula that strips LSPs as well, in one step. -Smell is still bad (although much improved over "squash flowers"). The Cherry scent smells a bit like burning hair, but I can live with it. Use outdoors and wear PPE (gloves and eye protection a minimum).

Beware of Gravity
If this bottle hits the floor in your house, it will leave your house smelling like someone gave your entire living room a perm. Change to softer bottles if you're accident prone.

This product has worked really well for all my last detail jobs. I apply it after the clay step.This works. Too bad it's a bit pricey, hopefully they can have some sales on it so we can buy more . Thanks AG

Worked Great
I had several years of break dust & dirt on my wheels. This did a really awesome job getting the majority of it off. I followed with a coat of meguires aluminum polish (my wheels are polished aluminum) and they look nearly brand new.

Works Amazing!
After all the talk and accolades of Iron X I figured I would give it a shot. It does exactly as advertised. It will do a great job on wheel, works similar but faster than Sonax FE. On my wifes pearl white Nissan it pulled contaminates out of the paint that I thought were gone based on claying it previously. Left the paint smooth and clear. Looking forward to trying more CarPro products!
