What is polishing?
A polishing compound rubbed against a painted surface acts like an abrasive and removes microscopic layers of paint to even out the surface. It is this process that removes the appearance of dullness and scratches.
Automotive paints generally have 3 layers:
- Primer layer - Bonding agent and prevents rust
- Base coat - Colour layer
- Clearcoat - Top protective layer
Processes in polishing:
- Cutting - Aggressive compounding for severe paint correction. Hard foam sponge with Liquid Shine High-Cut.
- Compounding - Clean up micro-marring from cutting process. Firm foam sponge with Liquid Shine Fine-Cut
- Polish - Removes dullness, holograms and swirl marks. Medium/Soft foam sponge with Liquid Shine Zero Swirl
- Glazing - A protective wax or sealant. Ultra soft foam sponge.
