Iron Oxides

Iron oxides, also referred to as “rail head dust” or “ferric oxide”, consists of tiny metallic particles that adhere to vehicle surfaces. This type of overspray damage occurs in industrial environments adjacent to factories, railroads, sandblasting, and mining operations. Without proper removal, the contaminant’s abrasive nature can cause extensive scratching to a vehicle’s finish. Furthermore, if not removed in a timely manner, “rail dust” will cause permanent rust stains.

Sandblasting operations produce “spent abrasive” material which can be removed using our hand polishing procedures. The processes used for iron oxide removal will neutralize any threat of rust penetration and restore the vehicle’s finish to its original state.
