You would be surprised by the finish Sonax cut max gives with the right pad.

Id be tempted to try that on hard paint if you feel 04-06 would not cut away what you need.

I've no idea but will look when I get home.

I think I used it with a white pad last year, I know it didn't do anything for my swirls and not a lot of shine either.

Anyway, never used it since!



It says 4 and 6 in wee red boxes after "Finish", nearly the same as the link, without the French

Which has more cut

Scholl S3xxl or Menz fg400

For removing RDS on white BMW paint, Menz 2200 is removing swirls but not RDS

I'm under the impression that S3xxl has more cut than FG400, but then FG300 has more than FG400

Why is everyone in a rush these days regarding paint correction. There is no perfect one step compound/polish and there never will be. If you have got the buzz from correcting paint whether it be from a Das6 or Rupes why then would you want to compromise on the finish. I guess the main argument will be time but if you don't want or aren't inclined to chase perfection then I would advise to get some glaze and jog on! And yes I've had a bad day but these things wind me up.

I think it's all about choice, your own expectations and what you can actually see. For whatever reason I can't, with the naked eye, see the difference between finishing with the Rupes yellow and the White on my silver car. Now that might be the paint, my eyes or the light source, I don't know.

I'd revisit this polish Mike. Suspect you need to up the pad a little. The polish has plenty of bite and finishes very well. For moderate swirls it's a nice product bud!

I think it works really with chemical guys orange or green pads. Long working time, wipes odf easily, amazing gloss removes swirls with ease. Do you mean a chemical guys white pad? If so you shouldnt have expected much if the paintwork needed much correction

Thats what my worry about S20 is, it wont remove the deeper marks.





It is for my own cars. They are all different colours - silver, light blue, grey, etc.

In the past I have always done the two step. But like I said, some products like Menzerna refine to a high gloss anyway. It has 8/10 for gloss. Sonax PF 05/05 has 5/6 for gloss.

Will I notice much from refining further?
Just because it says 8/10 doesn't mean that it's going to work these are just guide lines, the only way is to do test spots and then you will find out.

I've used most of these cutting compounds before if not all of them and it still depends on what paint, pad, and especially your own technique that gives you the outcome. You have many cars so write down what you have used and this will help you in the future

Will a das 6 pro plus cut more with the same compound and pad as a das 6 pro?
