At the start of 2009, Meguiar's released a brand new cutting compound that once again moved the game on and set a new standard of excellence in the marketplace. In simple terms, Meguiar's Ultra Cut Compound (#105) delivers a high level of cut in a very short space of time and is a joy to use in situations where a significant amount of paint correction is required on harder paint types. Users should note that it works extremely quickly and should thus be used accordingly; any attempt to rewet it during use or overwork it will result in a lot of dusting and will also make the residue much harder to buff off. In the time since it was first released, Meguiar's Ultra Cut Compound (#105) has seen more use in our studio than any other polishing compound and has become an essential part of our line up that we could now not be without.
Meguiar's Ultra Cut Compound (#105) is a fast acting liquid abrasive that is designed to permanently remove heavier paint defects such as deep swirl marks, light scratches and acid etching from original and refinished paintwork and leave a superior high gloss finish ready for final polishing. Comprising a unique blend of precision-milled non-diminishing micro-abrasives (Super Micro-Abrasive Technology, or SMAT for short), Meguiar's Ultra Cut Compound (#105) offers distinct advantages in terms of finish quality and working time. Furthermore, it performs equally well whether used in conjunction with foam or wool pads, or with dual action or rotary machine polishers, making it ideal for both home and professional use.
Meguiar’s Ultra Cut Compound (#105) should only be applied by machine. For best results using a dual action polisher, it should be applied to freshly clayed paint using a Lake Country 140 mm Hydro-Tech Cutting Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18” x 18” area, and these should be worked in slowly with heavy downward pressure at around 4000-5000 orbits per minute (speed 4-5 on most dual action machine polishers) until only a thin film remains (this will be achieved in just 3-4 passes). This film should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel and the finish should then be further refined using Meguiar’s Ultra Finishing Polish (#205).
For best results using a rotary polisher, Meguiar’s Ultra Cut Compound (#105) should be applied to freshly clayed paint using either a Lake Country 140 mm Rotary H-T Cutting Pad or, in cases where even more cut is required, a Lake Country 165 mm Foamed Wool Pad. Only 1-2 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18” x 18” area, and these should be worked in at around 1500-2000 revolutions per minute (speed 3-4 on most rotary polishers) using the zenith method until only a thin film remains. This film should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel and the finish should then be further refined using Meguiar’s Ultra Finishing Polish (#205).
