Today the most advanced and most expensive professional polishes use “diminishing” or sometimes called “nano” technology. This means that as they are applied they progressively “break down” into finer and finer particles. For instance if a diminishing polish starts out as a 1500 grit it can break down to a 50 point which is extremely fine, which will give a superb shine and luster even before using a glaze. This technology allows a defect to be removed and then fine polished…without requiring a secondary polish to remove abrasive haze. Thus moving straight to a glaze for clarity and then finally to a sealant to finish the job.
With a “diminishing” polish you get fast efficient removal of paint defects. The Ultimate Car Scratch Remover utilizes a diminishing polish (Totally Bitchin Scratch Remover).
NOTE: Using a high quality clean micro fiber towel is the most safe and effective way to apply a polish when working by hand to remove isolated scratches. Cotton towels can actually harm the finish since they just push the dried particles around on the finish rather than trapping them safely in the fibers like a micro fiber towel does.
Cutting Compound (sometimes called rubbing compound):
Cutting compounds are used for removing wet sand paper grits of approx 1000-1500…serious wet sanding territory. These compounds are sometimes called rubbing compounds. This class of abrasive is usually rated at one grit and remains at that grit the entire time it is applied. They are used for serious paint correction and without proper use can easily cause unnecessary damage to your clear coat finish.
Cutting or rubbing compounds are always followed with a polish. They leave what appears to be haze but is really the fine scratches left from the abrasive once the deep wet sanding scratches are gone. Therefore a polish is always necessary to remove the haze or fine compound scratches left.
In the end the safest way to remove isolated scratches on a modern clear coat finish is to us a Diminishing Polish like the one found in 100% guaranteed Ultimate Car Scratch Remover System.
