RUPES Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel Compound


We Say

RUPES Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel Compound has established itself as an ideal product for use in situations where maximum cutting power is required for major paint correction work when using free-spinning dual action polishers. Formulated specifically for use with long-throw BigFoot machines and the coarser grades of pads in the BigFoot line up, it offers a number of subtle benefits over rival cutting compounds. Firstly, it removes severe defects in intermediate and hard paint types quickly and easily, particularly when used with either microfibre or wool pads. Secondly, it does this without drying out too quickly or generating an excessive amount of polishing dust. Thirdly, it buffs off cleanly and leaves paint feeling very smooth, which makes it a pleasure to use.

Key Features

Cut Level9/10(Compared To Others)
Filling Power0/10(Compared To Others)
Gloss Level8/10(Compared To Others)


RUPES Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel Compound is a highly abrasive water-based compound designed to be used in conjunction with long-throw free-spinning dual action polishers. It works by using precision-milled aluminium oxide particles to cut away a thin layer of paint. As a result, it is able to remove severe paint defects, including deep scratches, heavy oxidation and stains caused by acid etching. Unlike many cutting compounds, it also finishes down well to give a sharp, high gloss finish that needs only minor refinement with a finishing polish afterwards. Long-lasting lubricants maximise its working time, while its filler-free formula ensures that defect removal is permanent rather than temporary.

How To Use

RUPES Zephir Gloss Coarse Gel Compound should be used in conjunction with free-spinning dual action polishers. For best results, it should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using either a RUPES BigFoot Coarse Foam Polishing Pad, a RUPES BigFoot Coarse Microfiber Polishing Pad or a RUPES BigFoot Coarse Wool 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 hint of residue remains. This residue should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel.
