Acid Rain/Caustic Stains
 

Industrial pollutants and emissions drift into the atmosphere and combine with rain or snow to form acids. These diluted acids settle on a vehicle’s surface when the water evaporates. The remaining acid becomes more concentrated and will cause damage to the surface creating slight depressions or craters. These imperfections are commonly referred to as “water spots”, “water stains”, and “acid rain etching”.

This category also includes mineral deposits / cement, salt, calcium, and lime deposits. The overspray specialist recommends immediate removal to increase the probability of a full surface restoration. If left untreated, acid rain will cause permanent surface damage. Don’t believe it when someone informs you that these damages cannot be corrected.
