EcH2o is an entirely new waterless cleanser and gloss-enhancer built on 2 years of research and development by CarPro Chemicals! EcH2o was designed to work in harmony with ceramic coatings and even provides easy cleaning of non-coated or waxed surfaces! Based on a SiO2 hybrid framework and an eco-friendly organic lubricant solution, EcH2o safely cleans and glosses a variety of exterior vehicle surfaces with ease!
Paint and chrome take on an entirely new level of gloss and reflection with this incredible formula and better yet it is easy to use even in extreme heat and direct sun on painted surfaces! Our solution to providing a swirl free and eco-friendly waterless experience is a blend of proprietary lifting agents combined with natural organic extracts and lubricants.
The secret to the safe cleansing abilities provided by EcH2o is a combination of its modified high gloss SiO2 component and its innate cleansing abilities, which easily removes dust and light dirt whilst leaving behind a wet, glass-like surface! The finish left by EcH2o mimics the incredible properties that have become synonymous with CarPro SiO2 sealants and CQuartz coatings throughout the years!
In conjunction with a quality microfiber towel, the lubricants aid in safely removing the larger particles from the surface while the remnants of the EcH2o solution become an active cleaner across the surface and begin to loosen any particulates that were left behind. Before the final step (noted in the product directions) the solution may dry to a fine haze indicating it is ready to wipe off any remaining product effortlessly!

Carpro Ech2O FAQ:
Can I use Ech2o in the sun as a waterless or detail spray?
Absolutely, it works very well even in direct sun.
Can I use Ech2o as a rinse-less wash?
Yes! Our Rinse-less wash testers found Ech2o to perform better than the products they have used until now.
Is Ech2o a cleaner?
Yes, it is a waterless wash that’s tough on dirt but gentle on the vehicle. It gently lifts dirt and contaminants from the surface.
Does Ech2o have protection in it?
Ech2o does have some Sio2 (quartz) protection in it BUT its main focus is on safely cleaning and glossing a variety of surfaces.
Pro Tip: Mix a couple ounces (1oz - 4oz) of CarPro Reload with your next RTU bottle of Ech2O for added protection!
Can I use Ech2o as a wipe down before coating?
No, the organic lubricants in Ech2o are GREAT for aiding in safe quick detailing but lubricants can hinder the bonding of CQuartz to the surface. For that purpose, stick with Eraser for a wipe-down solution. That is what Eraser was designed for.
Can I use Ech2o for wiping down a car that I just coated?
That depends on your definition of “Just”. Ech2o has very effective cleaners in it so we do NOT want to introduce a cleaning solution to a ceramic coating that is STILL undergoing a very complex curing process. IF you mean just before or after delivery / wiping off dust then yes. In that case dilute Ech2O 1:25 and gently remove any dust.
How do I use it?
As a high QD dilution – Spray and wipe.
For waterless - take a look some of the product videos.
Why do you have a range of dilutions mentioned?
There are a lot of variables in detail. Level of dust and dirt, temperature, humidity, preference, technique, and existing surface protection are just a few of the variables. In general, we would recommend you start with 1:15 for waterless wash and 1:25 for Quick Detailer.
Can I use Ech2O on Chrome?
Yes, It leaves the chrome incredibly clean, slick, and glossy!
Can I use Ech2O on Glass?
Yes, it works excellent!
Can I use Ech2O on interiors?
You can use Ech2O on some interior surfaces but we would recommend using CarPro Inside for most interior surfaces!

CARPRO IRON LS X - Iron Contaminant Removal (500ml/1L/4L)Regular price Sale price $25.95 Save $0.00
Highly effective, acid-free and pH balanced, CarPro Iron X stops rust spots and premature failure of the clear coat by making short work of iron contaminant removal across the entire vehicle! Using Iron X saves time and helps avoid the laborious claying process used in traditional car care regimes. This formulation of CarPro Iron X is safe and effective for use on all car surfaces and will not deteriorate clear coats. This preventative measure puts a stop to premature corrosion.
We are very proud to present Iron X Lemon Scent!! IronX LS (Lemon Scent) offers less harsh odour, but even more of the Brake Dust blasting power you have come to expect from the industry leader in brake dust removal... CarPro Iron X!
Iron X LS is an entirely new formula providing approximately 10% more iron dissolving power than ever before!
Airborne chemical compounds and ferrous particles (particles containing iron) actually penetrate the paint and create corrosive compounds that eat deep into the paint's sub-layers. This is a gradual process that is not evident until it's too late.
Iron X contains unique chemical ingredients that effectively dissolves the sintered iron by forming a water soluble iron complex. No other method cleans paint and wheels as deeply as Iron X. The Iron X Paint and wheels decontamination system was developed to remove the root of the problem (BELOW the top surface) rather than just shave off the top of the particle in the manner traditional claying offers.
During the use of your vehicle, brake dust and road grime become sintered to the surface of the paint, rims, and wheels due to the high temperatures they are exposed to. Brake dust contains high levels of iron and once sintered to the rim, becomes extremely difficult to dissolve or remove without the use of harsh chemicals. Iron X opens up the paint's pores to release ferrous particles and to neutralize caustic compounds that have developed in the paint's subsurface. Ongoing damage is immediately stopped and future damage is prevented, by removing the ferrous particles.
Iron X sprays on as a transparent liquid. As the cleansing liquid begins to work into the dirt and grime, the formula begins to turn purple or red. This colouring effect is the Iron X Cleaner forming a bond to the sintered iron on the car paint or wheel and changing its state to a water-soluble complex for an easy wipe or rinse off. Stubborn, baked on grime may take a small amount of agitation.
Iron X is widely used by body shops, high-end detailers, and even dealerships for new and used car prep. It is proven to deliver a clean, glassy smooth vehicle free of iron contaminants. No other iron decontamination product is as safe, fast, and effective!
How iron particles appear on your car surface and where?
Iron particles are all around us, and of course on our cars after travelling. They can be made from your car braking, driving near other cars, big trucks, train rails, industrial zones etc. They adhere to the car surface and once they "stick" to your paint due to there sharp edges together with sunshine they start to bake into the soft car paint where they oxidize and rust.
How to prevent iron dust from etching your paint?
It’s almost impossible to prevent the irons to stick on the surface, but it has been proven that inorganic coatings (CQuartz) has a self-cleaning effect and can reduce the quantity of iron that adheres to the surface.
Is Iron X pH Neutral?
Why does it change colour?
With Iron X it is due to chemical reaction between the chemicals and iron. Some other products change colours as well. There are very cheap chemicals other companies use that change their character simply by contact with air or iron but have zero to little dissolving power.
Why do you use fully plastic spray heads?
Iron X would react with normal triggers with metal springs inside.
Will Iron X stain chrome wheels or chrome trims?
No, it’s completely safe to use on any chrome wheels, trim, or bare aluminium wheels.
Will Iron X discolour wheel weights?
Yes, it will. Wheel weights are made from lead, Iron X will change the lead colour to green. However light agitation will recover the original colour.
Will Iron X affect brake calipers?
For most high-end calipers, it will not affect them however it can affect the paint colour of low quality acrylic painted calipers. For this reason, we advise you to be careful near calipers if unsure of the finish or type of paint.
Will Iron X remove wax from car paint?
Yes, if it’s a highly organic oil type it will affect the wax properties. If it’s a synthetic polymer sealant it won’t affect it much. On CarPro Sealants, Cquartz coatings, or other true coatings it won’t affect them at all. In fact, it is designed for use on coatings as well.
Does Iron X remove tar spots as well?
No, Iron X reacts only with iron particles.
Is Iron X safe to use on 3M and Paint Protection Film?
Yes, there is no problem at all using it on a clear bra and modern PPF when used properly.
Why does it smell so bad?
This is the nature of the chemical used, you cannot avoid this. If it doesn’t smell so strong it means it has a very little effect on iron or is a very diluted or inferior formula.
Why does Iron X have low viscosity?
If you make the product too thick it will not react well to iron particles due to the thickener additives. If you make it too thin there will only be a short reaction time, which will leave some iron behind. With Iron X we have found the sweet spot between these two variables to create the most potent but safe iron fallout remover on the market.
Can I leave Iron X to dry on the surface?
Yes, Iron X could dry on the surface of a modern gloss clear coat paint system as long as you wash it off, but do not let it dry on the surface when under direct sun. Even if it drys up don't worry, wipe it off. If it stains, just clean it with any polish.
It is not acid base.

CarPro Eraser - Oil & Residue Remover (500ml/1ltr/4L)Regular price Sale price $18.95 Save $-18.95
An excellent all-around cleaner, Eraser was specifically designed for the complete removal of polishing oils for inspection and prior to the application of CQuartz or any other coating, wax, or sealant. However, due to the alcohol mixed with Eraser's special degreasing agent, we have found it also makes an excellent streak free glass cleaner and also works as a general purpose degreaser and cleaner for many situations. A final wipedown with Eraser on your tires will leave them cleaner than a tire wash and scrub alone.
Until now IPA (isopropyl alcohol) and water mixture, have been used to remove polish residue and fillers from the auto paint before a wax or paint sealant are applied. This step allows you to check your work following compounding and it is supposed to ensure a totally clean paint surface on which the LSP (last step product) can bond. IPA loosens oil but the problem occurs as oil can be spread around or redeposited as you wipe the paint.
Eraser goes a step further with its intense cleaners that dissolve oils. Eraser breaks down polish residue as well as removing dust. It has the added bonus of cleaning better than an ordinary IPA, due to its patented degreasing formula. Eraser makes it possible for everyone to get the perfectly clean surface prior to the application of Cquartz or any other coating, wax, or sealant. Furthermore, with our proprietary blend, you will not find even a hint of that nasty IPA smell when using Eraser
Spray the surface.
