Oregon & Washington Wildfire Ash Damage to Automotive Exterior Painted Surfaces
As damaging wildfires rage throughout Oregon & Washington, ashes from the forest fires are settling on every surface – from sidewalks and homes to the roofs, hoods and trunks of unprotected vehicles. The ash residue will not harm automotive paint finishes as long as it remains dry. Do not wipe the ash off the paint as it will scratch the clearcoat. The elements in wood ash include calcium, potassium, phosphorus and magnesium, which are inert and have no effect on finishes in their dry form, except for abrasion. There is, however, a serious risk of chemical etching on automotive paint finishes when these elements are mixed with water. Leaving an ash-covered car outside on wet rainy nights or foggy mornings may very well result in chemical etching and, in some cases, serious damage to a vehicle’s painted surfaces.
Call us today for more information on Paint Protection to help block out the damaging effects of Ash Etching.
