Summary

CR Spotless DIC-20 is an amazing solution for those tired to remove the white spots which remain after every car wash.

Introduction

If you ever had water spots on your car’s paint, you know how hard removing them could be. In this case, preventative maintenance is crucial so using demineralized water is the perfect solution to avoid ruining your cars look and wasting a lot of time and effort.

Demineralized water is water that was treated in a complex process that makes it almost completely free of minerals dissolved. So for short these minerals are the ones that after the water is evaporated forms those hard to remove spots or even corrode the paint, chrome or nickel finishes.

Demineralized water is mineral-free water that allows a high-quality and easy washing of cars and any other vehicles or appliances without requiring drying or high polishing afterward.

To demineralize water you can use different processes like deionization, electrodialysis, membrane filtration (reverse osmosis or nanofiltration) or other technologies.

The process of deionization is using special-manufactured resins that thru ion-exchange help remove minerals almost 100% from water Water purity may be measured in various ways by measuring the weight of solute material(impurities), the degree they increase boiling/freezing point, refractive index, superconductivity index.

Undistilled water contains a large number of minerals so hard water leaves spots on paint and if this super hard-water is left sitting can easily etch the surfaces creating a semi-permanent outline that has cut in the clear coat of paint.

Etching can be removed only through polishing and claying. For a car with matte paint, this is a true nightmare because you cannot polish or clay. Even soft water would leave spots but those are easier to remove as the number of minerals is small.

Before or during sealants and coatings application is of utmost importance to use deionized water or the sealant and coater will not bond well or even accidentally sealing-in spots. Removing sealed-in spots would mean to remove the coating/sealant then clean again the car with deionized water.

Using deionized water for your car is important because overall is better for the paint’s health. Using soft tap water is ok only if you dry inch by inch your car after washing. If you have hard tap water it is recommendable to avoid washing your car with it.

You can check if your tap water is hard in different ways like checking if you have limescale on faucets/shower heads, dry skin afters showers or foggy looking glassware.
