We Say

Ultra-high solid and scratch-resistant paint systems can be difficult to correct, even when defects appear to be very light. Why? Because such paint types are physically very hard, and normal abrasive polishes aren't always capable of cutting them back properly. RUPES UHS Easy Gloss Polishing Compound solves this problem by employing robust precision-milled abrasives manufactured specifically for harder paint types. These abrasives cut away light to moderate defects and produce a high gloss finish in just a single polishing step. Moreover, they also work well on harder conventional paint finishes too. However, note that RUPES UHS Easy Gloss Polishing Compound shouldn't be used on soft paint types, due to the risk of excessive paint removal and micromarring occurring.

Description

RUPES UHS Easy Gloss Polishing Compound is a moderately abrasive compound designed to remove light to moderate defects and produce a high gloss finish in just a single step when working on scratch-resistant and ultra-high solid ceramic paint types 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 and burnish the underlying surface. As a result, it removes fine scratches and light swirls marks quickly and easily, and finishes down well to leave a sharp high gloss finish ready for the addition of protection. 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 UHS Easy Gloss Polishing Compound should be used in conjunction with free-spinning dual action polishers. For best results, it should be applied to freshly decontaminated paint using a RUPES BigFoot UHS Foam Polishing Pad (it's not designed to be used with other types of pads, i.e. microfibre or wool). 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.
