Arvi,

Auto finesse Tripple on a white hexlogic pad will give a nice finish, Tripple has a little cut but your still going to have to fully decontaminate before you polish.

if you want to use srp and improve the looks by filling instead of correction go ahead, not everyone has time to do a full correction go ahead i'm sure it will look better than if you didn't do anything.

I have white diamond black hole srp is as good as any so halfords choice may be better time wise.

So I purchased some Tripple. I have a Shinemate rotary and will use a white hex logic pad as indicated above.

Some previous posts indicate that you shouldn't work it in too long and only use on a low speed (sub 1000rpm?) due to the polish/wax content. Anyone got a tried and tested method.

Also Tripple seems quite watery - how much should I apply to the pad?


I'd clayed the car with the Farcela Clay mitt earlier in the year but never got round to polishing it. I picked up a Megs clay bar and used it last night and was surprised how dirty the car was and how much it picked up. It was nice to see how smooth Tripple went on cleaned paintwork when I tried a small area by hand

If i recall, the bottle has instructions on it for both machine and hand application. Spread it around on a low, then up a bit then back down?

Whatever it says on there, i followed and got a good result. Better than i expected.

Arvi,

Give tripple a really really good shake. I prime my pad by hand and rub all over the full face of the pad using 4 10 p sized blobs for the first tage, I polish with 3 small blobs. Iuse a DA but work it in on speed one then go to 3 as it goes clear I then slow down and do one more pass. Auto finesse have a guide on the website see link below.

As has been said, SRP does not contain any abrasives as confirmed by Autoglym.. Lots of cleaning and fillers in there though. I suppose the name Super resin 'polish' is misleading?

Not really, as a wood polish doesn't contain abrassives.

I think it's an appropriate name for it, as it's not a cutting compound and it does polish the car by filling the swirls and scratches to give a shiny look to the car.

Danny, in detailing terms 'polishing' is recognised as a paint correction process to remove swirls and imperfections and contains abrasives and chemicals to achieve this.
Fillers of the type you describe are referred to as glazes and do not have any abrasive properties but do fill and mask swirls and imperfections.

Wood polishes or Mr Sheen type products are indeed household 'polishes' but not relevant to Auto detailing.

And Srp has probably been called a polish long before the term detailing was invented.

The dictionary defines 'polish' as

Verb
"Make the surface of (something) smooth and shiny by rubbing it."
"Improve, refine, or add the finishing touches to."

Noun
"A substance used to give something a smooth and shiny surface when rubbed in."
"An act of rubbing something to give it a shiny surface."
"Refinement or elegance in a person or thing."

I think srp fits in quite well with most of those.

No, it's not a 'proper' abrasive corrective polish, but it still works very well and will make every a very neglected car look noticeably better to most people.

Of course the two products being listed in the first post are completely different and do different things with different results, but they also both take a very different amount of time and set of skills to use.
