You can use any of the range with any pad you want to get the desired cut. Your not bound to 1 polish shoud work with a certain pad only. It depends on how much cut is required to get the paint to the point you want. Koch Chemie range seem quite good. I have only used P2.02 out of their polish range and that is a light cut whilst also layering down some protection which it did a good job of.

The KC pads are coded for use - black for polishing etc. And they all work well as said above with the range of KC products. I use the compounds, polishes and waxes fairly extensively and I find them predictable, reliable and relatively easy to work.

Their other cleaning products work well too.

If I had a one-stop brand it would be KC but YMMV.

K8 maybe comparable to Menz FG400 or Scholl S3 as it's predominantly a fast cut compound but boy can it finish quite well. Especially on harder paints. F5 I would compare to Menz IP2200 or Rupes Quartz. It's sort of redundant on harder paints as H8 finishes so well but on medium to softer paints F5 works well. One downside is availability in only 1l sizes. M2 is the finishing polish but I'm not sure it is. Compared to a Menz 3800 or even Rupes Keramik I don't think it brings a lot to the party. Yes it's capable of removing haze and holograms but does it add the final wow? Not really. The finest stage are the P line or lack polishes. Here is where KC missed a trick. They really do add some extra gloss but where does it come from? They all have an added layer of polymer protection that certainly add gloss. Is that from the paint being jewelled probably not. The pads are pretty good. I've personally found no need for the black one. The white is the hardest followed by yellow. The orange anti-hologram pad comes in two versions both plain and waffle. Both yellow and orange are very versatile pads. They also do a couple of wool versions. The rest of the range is 100% worth a try. Greenstar has its fans on here and rightly so. FSE is great and value for money. Some of the other 'star' range are well worth a look. The main thing that's let KC down in the last three years is inconsistent supply to consumers hopefully now Slim's is the main distributor things may change for the better. Hope this helps bud!

I have used manu many polishes and Koch Chemie range is my favourite. H8 is one of the best if not the best compound out there.

Btw does anyody know does H8 contain both smat and dat abrasives?

I've read that but it doesnt mention whether its smat, dat or combination of both types of abrasives.

I used M2 the other day on a medium/soft swirly black car with a Rupes yellow pad and it removed all of them but still left a faint polishing haze.

I would say they are definitely DAT but I could be wrong either way H8 & M2 are a great combo

You won't find it in the MSDS. Both DAT and SMAT polishes both use Aluminium Oxide crystals. The difference is in DAT they are engineered to fracture and reduce in size and thus abrasiveness. I'd say both H8 and M2 are DAT polish bud.

Is M2 not that good then? Was planing on getting it with H8
