Marred ceramic nano-particle and scratch-resistant finishes can be difficult to correct, even if the defects appear to be fairly light. Why? Because such paints are physically very hard, and normal abrasive polishes often struggle to cut them back sufficiently. SCHOLL Concepts S17+ solves this problem by using high-purity aluminium oxide diminishing abrasives, which cut strongly to begin with, meaning that you'll correct moderate to heavy defects in no time at all. However, these abrasives then progressively break down to form a polishing rouge that gradually refines the finish. Consequently, it's often possible to correct and refine in a single step, particularly when using long-throw dual action polishers. That said, in cases where time is not pressing, following up with an ultra-fine finishing polish such as SCHOLL Concepts S30+ or SCHOLL Concepts S40 will improve the finish further.

SCHOLL Concepts S17+ is a highly versatile cutting compound primarily designed for moderate to heavy correction paint work on modern ceramic nano-particle and scratch-resistant clearcoats, although it also produces great results on conventional paint finishes too. SCHOLL Concepts S17+ uses intelligent Powder Technology (iPT) high-purity aluminium oxide abrasives that break down quickly in use, forming a progressively finer polishing residue. As a result, the level of cut on offer diminishes quickly from that of a moderate strength cutting compound to that of an ultra-fine finishing polish, meaning that it's often possible to correct and refine the finish in a single step. To aid this process, SCHOLL Concepts S17+ features advanced lubricants that optimise its efficiency and working time, while its filler-free formula ensures that defect removal is permanent rather than temporary.

How To Use
You can apply SCHOLL Concepts S17+ by hand or machine, although for best results we recommend the latter. By hand, apply SCHOLL Concepts S17+ to freshly decontaminated paint using a SCHOLL Concepts Polishing Puck. Only 3-4 pea-sized drops of product are required per 12 x 12 area, and these should be worked in firmly and evenly until only an oily residue remains. This residue should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel. For best results using a dual action polisher, apply SCHOLL Concepts S17+ to freshly decontaminated paint using either a SCHOLL Concepts Spider Cutting Pad, a SCHOLL Concepts Spider Polishing Pad or a SCHOLL Concepts Premium 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), applying moderate pressure for the first 90 seconds or so, and then progressively lighter pressure for a further 90 seconds or so, until only an oily residue remains. This residue should then be buffed off carefully using a PB Super Buffing Towel.
