I have long thought that SRP is, in fact, very, very good at cleaning paint and this can give the false impression that it has corrected the paint to some degree.

I say this because you can use SRP to good effect on older paint, then when the SRP has dissapeared a month or two down the line, the paint still looks considerably better than it did pre-SRP, but as a result of good paint cleaning rather than abrasive polishing.

Just my two pence worth - might be total rubbish, but that's what i think happens. I don't think that SRP has any real amount of "cut", but the combination of paint cleaners and very very light abrasion work together very well and the glaze / sealant part is the icing on the cake.

SRP works mainly by using fillers, but several years ago Dave KG did a test and suggested that it did in fact display some limited degree of cut (he posted some fairly high magnification images which clearly showed the edges of the scratches had been rounded off, not simply filled in).

I would take the opinions of Dave KG over the opinions of almost anyone here nowadays

The thing to remember, as I posted in the old thread, is SRP used to contain abrasives years back in it's original formula but it's since changed and AG have confirmed it contains no abrasives at all now. However, others have mentioned a slight degree of "cut" to it so maybe that's down to the mineral oils used in it's formulation.

...and of course the pad itself has cut, even by hand. One of the most 'fun' corrections I have done was an old blue MR2 that was 90% corrected with a finishing pad and water....

Its a shame if SRP has lost all the abrasive content though, as it used to make a great 1-step tidy up on cars. Luckily I have several old bottles from years ago that have sat in the back of my cupboard and will definitely be any 'old' formula. Still works great

Back at the time, the old formula SRP wasn't 'supposed' to have abrasives in it either

It is indeed a shame if the current formation has been softened - but it has been pretty much the best all round cleaner/polish/filler for a modest budget for a long time.

Experimented with SRP several months back on an old car. I used a DA and cutting pad, just applied some pressure as Alan mentioned in his original post and this was the initial result after one hit.
There were some very deep scratches on this car which were reduced just in line with what Alan had tried to explain. They must have been reduced in depth otherwise SRP leaves all other glaze type products in the shade because this car had never seen any polishing since new in 2000. I know the gentleman at Forensic Detailing suggests it is mineral oil that may cut somewhat but I believe the pad has an effect and with a rotary it gets better. Anyway, that is my experience and this is what I would have put in the original thread. SRP is a top product.

Please feel free to clear up any confusion once and for all - does SRP contain purpose built abrasives or not?
