So I got this new fallout remover!

I took a chance on this from ECP, had no idea what to expect, there was not even a picture of it, until now. Just over £5 for 500ml after one of the usual discounts.



These wheels have been in use for the summer, not particularly dirty, I am a detailer after all. Nothing has been done in this picture, the AF was used with the aim of removing any tyre gel with a brush.



After a clean with the Verso and shampoo I dried the wheels and lined up the products. The 2nd is Iron X in the AG bottle.



The products are applied, those who use Iron X will know the consistency, the QX was much thinner, not as thin as AG's product which I have.



Now to agitate with a couple of brushes to avoid cross contamination of products. The Iron X can already be seen performing.



After little agitation there was little difference, only limited evidence of any purple for the QX. So I washed the wheel and dried it and gave the whole thing a coat of Iron X. There was virtually no evidence of bleeding as seen in this picture.



Conclusion:- Bleeding may show up more on dirty wheels a bit like the Wonder Wheels offering. It looks to have worked but if you want a bleeding product as I like on wheels then this is not really the best. I can pay a lot less for AG which does not bleed but works.


Just for fun.



Thanks for reading.

Bleeding doesn’t represent how effective a fallout remover is as some simply don't bleed a lot or at all. If there was no reaction on a second application of iron x I'd guess its worked.

Fully agree Brian but this product is descibed as colour change technology so you would hope to see a little more action.
If it was called just fallout remover then it would have managed expectations more in line with description on the bottle. The Megs Dub range said the same but did change colour. So I will not buy it again but at the price nothing lost, it is usable.

Fair enough bud but for just over £5 for 500ml it ain't bad. Always cheaper buying bulk though!

Just ordered some of this for a laugh. At 6.82 for 2.5ltr it's worth a try. The last lot I tried was hdd ferrous ferric and I wasn't massively impressed with it.

I didn't like it either; too thick a gel, dries too quickly. I have to dilute mine, and only then is it OK.

May suit other people, just not me.

Once all mine are gone or given away, I'm going back to Sonax Full Effect for wheel cleaning and will keep a bottle of Iron-x for paint.
