Will fallout remover strip my wax coat?

I'm new to all this, so be gentle with me....

As I read more on here, I buy more stuff and I'm of course keen to try it. A bottle of Korrosol arrived recently and when I find a reasonable day I'd like to give it a go. Before turning my car red I'm keen to know if the product will remove the Collinite 476 I applied a week or so back. I don't mind if it will, I'll just need to find a little more time to make sure it's protected again after.

Ideally should have used before , just wait until you lose protection and then start afresh.

It may not completely remove it, certainly if it's recently applied and still protecting well, butbit wont do it any good and will more than likely diminish its protection and reduce its life and durability

It wont remove it completely but the question you should be asking yourself is "will it turn my car red since all of the rust spots are under a layer of fresh wax?".

Just saying you may not experience the full effect of Korrosol due to the fresh layer of wax. Certainly give it a go and apply a fresh layer of wax after you are done (you know...after the rinse and dry part).

Think about what you are trying to achieve here. The purpose of fallout remover is to dissolve the minute particles of iron based contamination that get lodged in our paintwork. These particles can come from rail dust, various industrial processes and also from brake dust generated by our own cars, unless that is you happen to be lucky or wealthy enough to have carbon ceramic brakes installed! So, even though using a reputable fallout remover won’t specifically destroy your wax (see below) using it after waxing does present two problems.

The first issue is that the product won’t be able to reach any particles that were already there and have been covered over by the wax. Secondly, even though they are tiny, iron particles tend to have jagged sharp edges on them which makes it easy enough for them to get stuck into paint clear coat, so they certainly have no problems cutting into much softer wax. This means that if there is enough of it buried in your wax coat, once you apply the fallout remover and dissolve the offending particles, you will be left with lots of tiny holes in your wax layer, thereby compromising its effectiveness and giving the impression that it has removed the wax itself.

In practice however, on a well protected and regularly maintained car, you may well see very little if any reaction from the Korrosol simply because the contamination is getting washed away before it is allowed to build up. Wheels do suffer more due to their proximity to the braking surfaces but once you have decontaminated and protected your paint, it shouldn’t need doing any more often than your waxing does.
