Won't bird lime eat through most protection products if left for too long?

My thoughts exactly, bird lime should be removed as soon as possible after detection

Your right there all the way, you can have any protection on the car, if left for too long, it will penetrate the clear coat on the paint, bird droppings are acid based, quite lethal, the best cure is, remove the bird lime straight away.

Sounds like to me it's been on the paint for some time, even if left for a day, I can't see it penetrating the clear-coat so quick in the time scale given.

Well that's that settled then, I've still gone and bought some today, comes in a nice looking jar, good applicator, nice smell and texture, just waiting for some good weather so I can get it on the car!!

Certainly give it a go and see how you get on, you will straight away find it's a very easy wax to use, plus the applicator is very manageable through grip levels and wax control over the surface, keep us posted

Hi Zahir,

As promised I have checked with the technical team, and they have said very similar to the guys above – any wax, not just ours will act as a barrier against bird lime but this will only last for a limited amount of time. No wax will be able to protect your paintwork indefinitely from a substance as acidic as bird lime. In the future to prevent damage, remove bird lime as soon as you spot it as this is the only way to prevent etching in the paint which you have described. However, what we would advise now is use G3 Paint Renovator to remove all of the material the bird has deposited (it may need a couple of applications) and then re-apply your G3 SuperGloss Paste Wax. We are confident your paintwork will be looking great again in no time at all!
