Pity the Blackfire range isnt mentioned in the guides or is just classed the same as the Menzerna?

Does anyone have the facility to update this chart? Its really good and the addition of some more products would make it excellent, especially for s.

I'm thinking more Menzerna, JEFFS possibly AG?

My suggestion in understanding abrasive grits is to buy products that name the grit sizes:

600 grit - extra heavy for use after wet sanding or on a heavily oxidized single stage paint
800 grit - heavy can be used above
1200 grit - medium for single stage and some badly scratched clear coat finishes
1500 grit - light medium - for correction needs between
medium and light grit
2000 grit - light for use on clear coats
Micro Fine grit - for use on spyder scratches on clear coats

The problem you will run into here is trying to get your supplier to provide you ********** information on the grit size in their compounds. If you force the issue they might respond with information. But the chemists use this terminonlogy when selecting abrasives for the compounds.

They use either silica which does not break down as it is used or aluminum oxide which does breakdown as it is being use. But it has a tendency to gum up. So a good compound is one that uses a combination of both silica and aluminum oxide.

These may seem obvious to the more experienced, but I just got a pack of the 4 x 250ml Sample Kit from CYC, in preparation for the G220 which is gift-wrapped somewhere at home
