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).

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.
  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.

Mist the area generously with Pinnacle Clay Lubricant.

A Must Have Item
Since this was my first time using a clay bar I really did not know what to expect. But found that one needs lots of lubricant to get the job done.
ProsNice ergonomic feel.
ConsThe feed tube had to be trimmed slightly (1/2 inch or less at a time, trial and redo) so the cap fit without any issues.

Amazing product
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.
Clay Lubricant
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.
Prosease of clay barring
ConsCost of product in smaller quantities.
Works great!!!
Everything I expected. Ease of use, not one problem.
Did what it's supposed to do.
My first time claying, and this product along with the clay worked very nicely for me.
