ObliTARate Gel is an exceptionally powerful tar and glue remover

Its solvent-based formulas designed to dissolve stubborn, sticky contaminants on contact. This chemical removal process is a vital part of the paintwork decon stage and essential for minimising the risk of marring and scratching during subsequent clay bar decontamination and polishing stages.

Extremely user-friendly, ObliTARate Gel has been developed as a highly viscous liquid

This means it will linger on the surface for the maximum possible penetration time, assisting the chemical breakdown of contaminants and allowing even the harshest sticky residues to be safely wiped away with a microfibre cloth.

Formulated to melt away the even harshest staining

ObliTARate Gel will melt away tar, glue and rubber splatter as well as the pollutants and ensuring that they physically bleed off the surface.

ObliTARate Gel can dissolve even the most extreme contaminates

It's also suitable for removal of traffic cone rash, factory protective wax coatings, residue from old stickers, decals and badges, and even overspray.
