We Say

RUPES Quarz Gloss Medium Gel Compound has established itself as an ideal product for use in situations where moderate levels of cut and gloss enhancement are required when working with free-spinning dual action polishers. Formulated specifically for use with long-throw BigFoot machines and the medium and coarse grades of pads in the BigFoot line up, it offers a number of benefits over rival cutting compounds. Firstly, it removes fine scratches and light swirl marks in intermediate and hard paint types quickly and easily, particularly when used with either foam or wool pads. Secondly, it does this without drying out quickly or generating an excessive amount of dust. Thirdly, it buffs off easily and leaves paint feeling very smooth, which makes it a pleasure to use.

Description

RUPES Quarz Gloss Medium Gel Compound is a moderately abrasive water-based compound designed to be used in conjunction with long-throw free-spinning dual action polishers. It works by employing precision-milled aluminium oxide particles to cut away a thin layer of paint. As a result, it is able to remove deeper paint defects, including fine scratches, light oxidation and brush-inflicted swirl marks. Unlike many cutting compounds, it also finishes down well to give a sharp, high gloss finish that needs only very minor refining 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 Quarz Gloss Medium 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 Medium Foam Polishing Pad, a RUPES BigFoot Coarse Microfiber Polishing Pad or a RUPES BigFoot Medium 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.
