Serum PrepTM


Serum PrepTM is a formulated solution of Sodium thioglycolate (NaTG) and other cleaners provided in a safe, concentrate form.  Serum Prep is used to remove ferrous (Iron-containing) particles embedded within the paint surface.  When these particles are left, they can cause a corrosive pitting.  Serum Prep reacts with these contaminants by forming Ferrous thioglycolate indicated by the appearance of a purple color development. 

Surface decontamination is the first step in the "paint correction" process.  Paint correction is necessary to fully realize the benefits of ceramic coatings. The better your "paint correction" the better the performance of the ceramic coating.

Supplied at 15% active solids.  Serum Prep is diluted prior to use by a 4:1 ratio for paint surface decontamination.  For wheel rim applications use 2:1 dilutions.  Serum Prep can be used in combination with Brightener from our CLEAN collection to turbo -charge cleaning of wheel rims.  Scented with our custom Mint fragrance to mask the natural sulfur smell of NaTG.

Would buy again

I would buy this again. I’ve used it on paint and on a set of wheels that had not any sort of iron remover in months. Those wheels are so clean. I used this as prep before the Dinowax Sealant.
As far as how this compares to other products. I’ve only used Carpro Ironx. Man that stuff takes the breath a way from you because of how bad it smells. I won’t say the Dinowax Serum Prep is a basket of roses smell but I will say it is significantly better in the aroma. I also didn’t see the purple streaks that are see in Carpro or other iron removers. Maybe that’s a dye Dinowax doesn’t use or maybe I didn’t have a lot iron so I be removed from the wheels and paint of my car.
One thing that’s really great about this product is the price! Hands down the price cannot be beat. I’m just a prosumer detailer. But i will never pay $80+ for a gallon like most of Dino’s competitors!

rich c.

Have your ceramic serum applied to my 2019 Rave Black Platinum CT6....Unbelievable shine, depth, it lasts.

It's ok

Tried this on wheels the other day both diluted 2:1, 4:1, and just straight out of the bottle didn't bleed at all and with very disappointing results.

Serum PrepTM is designed for paint application. It can be used on wheel rims at more concentrated levels. Serum Prep contains NaTG which reacts with Iron oxide (Fe2O3) to form an Iron complex indicated by a purple color change. If you use Serum PrepTM on an Aluminum rim, no complex will forms and no color change. If the rim is coated, very little complex will forms and no color change. If the rim is painted, little complex will form and very little color develops. The point is, if little complex forms then it's not due to the product, but due to the reaction. Our Serum PrepTM does NOT contain pigments or dyes to mimic the Iron complex formation. Many competitive products are now doing this.
