One of the biggest problems that can trip you up when correcting defects in soft paint finishes is micromarring. This term refers to a faint pattern of tightly defined swirl marks caused by unbroken down abrasives scouring the surface of the paint. It typically appears if you use a compound that is too robust for the hardness of the paint you are working on, or if you fail to work an appropriate compound for long enough. Either way, the trick to avoiding micromarring on soft paint finishes is to use a compound with fragile abrasives that break down quickly and easily. Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2500 (PO203) fits this bill perfectly.

How To Use
Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2500 (PO203) can be applied equally well by hand or dual action machine. By hand, it should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using a SCHOLL Concepts Polishing Puck. Only 1-2 pea-sized drops of product are required to polish a 12 x 12 area, and these should be worked in as firmly and evenly as possible until only an oily residue remains. This residue should then be buffed off using a PB Super Buffing Towel. For best results using a dual action polisher, Menzerna Medium Cut Polish 2500 (PO203) should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using a Gyeon Q²M Eccentric Polishing Pad. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per 18 x 18 area, and these should be worked in thoroughly at 4000-5000 orbits per minute (speed 4-5 on most dual action polishers) until only a thin oily residue remains. This residue should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel.
