Gyeon Q2M clay - leaving hazing on paint

Used some new gyeon clay on a black A3 today

I made up some lube using demon shine (neat) along with some car shampoo in there too

I had washed the car then used some auto finesse ObliTARate followed by the clay bar

I kept the area wet using little pressure
The car was clean & the bar hardly picked up much

After I gave the car another wash & dried it off there were a lot of panels with hazing
The rear was the worst

I haven’t came across this before. This is my 1st time using this clay

I done a test area in the door sill and it is leaving some hazing behind

Could it be the lube letting the bar bite too much?

Most likely clay marring. Can be caused by not enough lube / too much pressure / not keeping clay clean enough / soft paint.

It will show up most on black paints. Clay is abrasive nd it is not always possible to avoid marring. Finishing polish will remove the marring.

I'd definitely have another go with some dedicated clay lube or onr and see if it makes a difference

Sorry i didn't realise you had done the whole car

Clare marring is often very fine, so something like megs UC by hand should take the worst of them out

Clay bars, softish paints and high peel will almost always look like the car has been sanded.
Couple if tips, you can never use too much lube, use only enough pressure to stop the clay from sliding out of your hands (as little as possible), make sure the clay is continuously turned and needed to keep it clean, expect some marring

Clay marring on black cars especially your colour is pretty much impossible to avoid a finishing polish or a abrasives cleanser polish will remove the marring, but I would advise not to hit your tailgate with your DA
