SCHOLL Concepts S3 Gold XXL


We Say

SCHOLL Concepts S3 Gold XXL is a 500 lb gorilla in the world of car polishes. Q: What kind of paint defects will it remove? A: Any that you dare show it! It's packed to the rafters with high-purity aluminium oxide diminishing abrasives, which cut ferociously to begin with, meaning that you'll correct even very severe defects in no time at all. However, these abrasives then progressively break down to form a polishing rouge that gradually refines the finish, meaning it's often possible to correct and refine harder paint types in a single step. 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 S3 Gold XXL is an aggressive cutting compound that cuts paint back quickly and easily, and is thus ideal for tackling deep scratches and severe acid etching. Unlike many cutting compounds, it also finishes down well to give a sharp, high gloss finish that needs only minor refining with a finishing polish afterwards. SCHOLL Concepts S3 Gold XXL uses intelligent Powder Technology (iPT) abrasives that break down quickly in use, and its filler-free formula ensures that defect removal is permanent rather than temporary. Although it is formulated specifically for intensive correction work on modern ceramic nano-particle and scratch-resistant clearcoats, it also produces excellent results on harder conventional paint finishes too.

How To Use

SCHOLL Concepts S3 Gold XXL should only be applied by machine. For best results using a dual action polisher, SCHOLL Concepts S3 Gold XXL should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using either a SCHOLL Concepts Sandwich Spider Pad or a SCHOLL Concepts Spider Cutting 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.
