It can be quite smelly when the chemical reaction starts!

In strong sun……it hurts??……what does it hurt?


White is the kindest colour for composite structures in hot sunshine.

Fair comment!
Kip Macullum once counselled me AGAINST Brilliant WHITE  8)  as in strong sun it hurts.
I knew better.


Did it anyway
In strong sun it hurts!!!!!

Right, thanks guys. Never heard of it but its winging its way already, and will probably save quite some time returning my paint to eye bleeding WHITE again.  8)

It may remove radio active material although it doesn't say so on the pack!!
It's often used for removing brake dust. The reaction smells awful but doesn't appear to affect the paintwork other than the particles it removes.

Is this a Chernobyl kind of remover?
A little like putting your head under the kitchen table, during the blitz?

If so- brown spots would be well down my list of concerns!  :o
To what is it that you refer Mr Brooks?  :-\

"Fall out remover", interesting. Can I get a brand name maybe? ??? We live in a rural, sugar cane, area & the farmers stir up a lot of dust & in cutting season a lot of them, still, set fire to their crops, massive fires, a traditional pest removal method, snakes & parasites. The fallout is bad in those times. I have cut & polished similar looking pollution from my white ute a few times & it's hard work. Another down side is of course that paint is only so thick. Thanks.

If it's iron based then fallout remover will dissolve it. The stuff I have turns purple when it reacts so you can see if it needs more of the solution. I used it on my white car, it was covered in minute particles of rust,no idea where from.

John would say does it stop it working?……….well then, does it matter.
Correct  ;)
If it's stuck to the surface then its' probably something in the water (not surprising as most places down south seem to be very murky - who knows what strange contaminants (other than the usual sewage)  in the water).  May well be something left behind when the water evaporates - only real way of knowing is to get it chemically analysed.
