Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
1. My car does not have Alloy Wheels, Can i still use it?
Answer : Yes, of course. Most of the cars have disc brakes which release the iron particles which dull the wheel area and damage the paint behind it. Also, the bonnet/hood of the car is also affected by the Brake dust of other cars. KKE BDR is an Iron Contamination Remover and can be used where ever you suspect might be affected by Iron deposits.
2. My Car is of White colour, will it damage my car paint?
Answer : Absolutely not. KKE Brake Dust remover is a safe product and can be used on white cars as well. In fact, white cars are affected the most by the brake dust of the other cars. You'll specially be able to see this on the hood and the area behind the wheels.
3. How does the product work?
Answer : The product is a combination of various components, which react with Iron Oxide, which is nothing but rust. The product which is transparent in colour turns into purple colour when it reacts with Brake Dust. Since this product reacts with Iron Fallout and not merely washing it superficially, it removes the iron deposits which are even impregnated into the paint.
4. How do the Iron particles get into the Paint of my car?
Answer : When you are driving on the road, the brake dust of the other cars is also suspended in the air as dust if the particles are small. If you are moving at 90 km/hr, and the air is stationary, these particles which are in the air hit your car at the speed of 90 km/hr. At this speed, these small particles puncture the paint surface and remain there. Later, these particles form more rust and affect the paint finish of your car.
5. What will happen if I allow the Iron particles to remain in the Paint?
Answer : If the Iron particles remain in the Car paint, they would deteriorate the paint finish over time as they would oxidize when they come in contact with the elements. Especially on the lighter colour cars, you can make out with naked eyes when the paint finish goes dull. By using KKE Brake Dust Remover regularly, you can increase the life of your car paint and take Proper Care of your car.

Answer : Spray KKE BDR on the surface, wait for the iron particles to change the colour. Wait for about a minute and then wash it off. Do not allow the product to dry.
7. What will happen if the product dries on the car?
Answer : The product is absolutely safe, in fact it is PH 7 which is as neutral as water. If the KKE BDR dries on the car, it will stop reacting to anything. For this reason, most of the car care products are advised to be used in shade on a cool car, else the product gets wasted.
