Dusting

Using megs 105 and 205 on my Neyara Blue Seat Aleta. Have used white and orange hex logic pads but am getting whit dust. Is this my technique or working time. Definitely not using too much polish(am only using a couple of pea sized drops as per junkman)

Hi buddy, are your pads dry to start? Normally best to wet them a little first and durning with a spray of water.

Hey, thanks for getting in touch, never tried that to be fair. Will give it a shot, wondered if it may be down to cooler weather? I'm pretty new to using my DA

There could be a few factors in it.
Too much product, working too large an area, not cleaning the pads out enough.
Like to give a very light spritz of water over the pad when using 105 and 205. You don't need to soak it. Just a light dusting - as above - and then pop your polish on the pad.

105 is dusty. 205 is really nice to use and can be worked for ages.

105 is a very dusty compound if you use a foam pad but is less dusty if you use a MF pad and a spritz of water as the compound starts to break down, but as for 205 it's a great polish for refinement after 105. How long are you working 105? And what speed are you using.
