Getting the best from Scholl S40

I've bought a bottle of s40 to replace my megs 205 and was wondering what's the best way to use it to get the best finish from it.

I'm using a das6 and have also bought the recommended scholl orange pad.

Any hints and tips please.

Scholl's range of polishes are pretty straightforward to work. S40 is quite oily so you can work it for longer but you only need to use small amounts of S40 on the orange pad, work it on speed 5 with moderate pressure for 60 - 90 seconds at most with arm movements of 1 - 2 inches per second covering an 18 inch x 18 inch area. Make sure to do several passes over the same area. Then use no pressure at all for 45 - 60 seconds for a couple of passes.

You will notice the polish has been worked properly as it will turn very clear. Wipe off and job done.

Not to sure about the orange pad, but Scholl S40 is a fantastic finishing polish and leaves a stunning finish works on all paints but you only need to use very little of it, 2-3 small drops and at speed 3-4 that's how I use it

Only use the wait of your machine and it can be worked for as long as you want but can be a bit fiddly to remove if you haven't worked it right, but most Scholl polishes are like that anyway. Apparently it's supposed to enhance the colour on dark paints but I've never noticed the difference between my other finishing polishes I've used in the past you will like it
