Labocosmetica Preludio is an acidic pre-soak for Rinseless and Waterless products such as Idrosave and Maniac Waterless specifically for mineral contamination such as limescale.

To date there are only pH-neutral products on the market that fail to eliminate mineral contaminations such as, limescale, that compromise previously applied sealants and waxes. These residues can be difficult to remove and create damage to the clear coat that, in some cases, have to be polished out to be restored.

Preludio Acidic by Labocosmetica, has been specially developed, to eliminate these inorganic mineral contaminations. For example, after a day of rain or snowfall, the car can accumulate significant amounts of inorganic dirt on the bodywork, especially if it is sandy rain. This occurs because the water, as it evaporates, leaves mineral deposits that, over time, tend to form a layer that is difficult to remove.

Preludio Acidic specifically addresses inorganic dirt of mineral origin that requires an acidic pH treatment to dissolve and remove. Unlike neutral or alkaline cleaners, it specializes in effectively removing this type of dirt that tends to solidify on the bodywork. A neutral or alkaline product is not sufficient to remove this microscopic mineral layer that solidifies and layers on the paint, and this is where the power of Preludio Acidic is essential.

How it works

Preludio Acidic’s emollient acid formula penetrates limescale deposits and mineral films, dissolving them and lifting them from the surface more quickly and effectively than a neutral or alkaline product. This allows you to remove dirt and contamination that has now softened, minimizing the risk of microscratches on the bodywork of your car. The product is less powerful than a specific product for removing limescale stains and mineral residues, but it is more delicate and respectful of the treated surfaces and can be used for frequent use.

Types of dirt removed

Mineral residues: Often caused by hard water, mineral residues can leave streaks and stains on the surface of the bodywork that an acid pre-wash can remove.
Limescale deposits: Similar to mineral residues, limescale deposits can form due to the evaporation of water on the bodywork, leaving whitish stains.
Mineral-laden rains such as sandy rains can leave permanent stains if not treated in time. An acid prewash can neutralize and remove these stains from the bodywork.
Industrial dirt: Particles and residues from industrial plants can deposit on the bodywork, making it dull and dirty. An acidic prewash helps dissolve and remove these particles.
Surface oxidation: While it may not act as a specific paint restoration product, an acid prewash can help reduce the appearance of surface oxidation.

Renews PPF protection

Preludio Acidic works on the PPF by dissolving and removing residues such as mineral deposits, water stains or other substances that a neutral detergent cannot address. The acidity of the product breaks the chemical bonds between dirt and the PPF surface, allowing the film to be purified without damaging it. The PPF will appear clearer and cleaner, and the car surface will feel smoother to the touch and return to its natural hydrophobicity.

How to use Labocosmetica Preludio Acidic

For cleaning wheels and obvious lime deposits: Dilute the product at a ratio of 1:5. This concentration is ideal for effectively removing impurities from rims and treating surfaces affected by limescale deposits, ensuring deep cleaning. If limescale deposits persist after using Preludio Acidic, it is advisable to use a specific water stain remover such as Energo.

After sandy rains or in the presence of heavy mineral contamination: Use a dilution of 1:10. This will remove the traces left by sandy rains or mineral deposits, restoring the bodywork to its original splendor.

For coating rejuvenation and maintenance cleaning of bodywork and plastics: For more frequent action, ideal for rejuvenation of surfaces treated with coating or for maintenance cleaning, a dilution of 1:50 is recommended. This approach ensures the removal of impurities while keeping surface protection intact.
