    Body Shop Safe or Not?

    We are often asked if a particular product is safe to use in a body shop environment, or even what that means in the first place. "Body Shop Safe" or "Paintable" refers to whether or not a product contains anything that might interfere with the painting process in a body shop. Some ingredients can cause real problems if used where paint is being sprayed, but are otherwise harmless. Certain silicones and other ingredients that are used to enhance one characteristic or another of a product, or make a product easier to use, should not be used in a body shop environment. This reference chart will tell you if a Meguiar's product is suitable for your body shop environment.

    For the general consumer or professional detailer these ingredients are really of no consequence whatsoever.

    Sorry, Mike, it took us only 18 months to reply to your write-up.

    No more guessing about body shop friendly products.

    Re: Body Shop Safe or Not?

    A bottle of Ultimate Quik Detailer G#14422 I bought two months ago was coded with the green "body shop safe" decal, while the bottles bought this week do not reflect that. Has this product recently changed formulations? Supplier advised that this was from a new shipment, and not old inventory.

    Thank you
