We have been hearing about people who ask what polish should they use. Car polishing is an important topic among people who want to achieve the best level of visual perfection for their car. In general, we want to maintain a perfect-looking finish and it is a bad idea to use abrasive polishing solution. When polishing our car, it is actually possible to do more than damages that the one that already exists. In many cases, paint issues can be resolved with proper finish, the right technique and the right tools. In this case, harsh compound should be the last thing that we use.
Pre-wax cleaners are often used as very fine car polish and they are able to maintain the overall gloss without thinning our car paint. Polishing should be an action that clean embedded dirt, without causing harm to the actual paint layer. Super gentle polishes should maintain the overall gloss. A good polishing material should have the consistency of typical talcum powder. It is highly advisable to now remove the clear topcoat from the car surface. Clearcoat is used on modern cars to create the beautiful finish. So, we should be able to retain the overall good looks, by ensuring that the clearcoat is finely polished and remain clean.
In reality, heavy polishing could reduce the overall finish and clarity. So, this is something that they need to avoid. A good paint finish that includes clear, color and primer should only be 6/1000 of an inch thick and with a particularly abrasive polish, we could actually remove 2/1000 of an inch very quickly. In many cases, we should be able to remove long scratches with corrective polish. The more important thing to do is to learn how to read the instructions, so we are able to get the best results. We should know what task the product we are using is designed to perform.
As an example, we should use polish that’s similar to the one used in an actual car assembly line. What we really need to prevent is improper paint scouring and there are abrasive polish system out there that can cause significant damages to our car. Not many car owners bother to check their polishing products and tools. Without proper instructions, it isn’t possible for us to get real results. We should be aware that abrasive polishes have particles with different characteristics. When we look under the microscope, abrasive materials may have different shape and size.
We should be able to maintain the proper car finishes without harsh corrective polishing products. However, we need smart paint care that involves regular waxing and washing. We also need proper waxing and washing tools, such as towels, applicators and wash mitts. Nothing creates swirling scratches faster than dry, rough towels and bad wash mitt. When parking our car for a long period of time or more than one hour, we should avoid exposing the car surface from intense sunlight.
