Ultra Deep Shine confusion

AG site says:

Ultra Deep Shine is a polish for use on black and dark coloured cars suffering from excessive swirling, fine scratches or holograms.

It is an 'all-in-one' formula that polishes and protects in one. For this reason Ultra Deep Shine should not be followed by Extra Gloss Protection or High Definition Wax.

Pro Tip: Do not allow the product to dry onto the paintwork for a long time, apply to a panel, allow to dry, then buff off immediately. If Super Resin Polish is used there is no need to use Ultra Deep Shine.


1. So it's a polish + protection and not needed if SRP is used. But SRP really needs EGP or HDW for decent protection, so the AG site seems rather contradictory/confusing...
2. Also, what are the characteristics of UDS that make it applicable for black cars anyway?

1. We do not recommend products are applied on top of Ultra Deep Shine, because on rare occasions it can lead to a greasy finish. So to avoid any dissatisfaction we say to avoid it altogether. There is a wax in UDS already, so it will leave some protection. SRP also has a wax in it and can be left at that (you may be surprised quite how long it lasts actually) but as you CAN apply a wax on top to extend the protection period, we advise people do. There are also other visual benefits associated with a wax like UHD.
2. It uses different oils that aid with improving the appearance of aged/swirled black paint. It has a heavier fill, as I'm sure you know black will show up everything. If people can't go for full correction then this is a great alternative for those wanting to work with hand applied products and get a great result.

Interesting, but why just black? Won’t it do the same job on other colours (eg solid red)?

Thanks

Ultra Deep Shine will work on any colour (as any polish will, save for those that include a dye or colouring agent) but as swirls, scratches and so on show up more clearly on black you need something that is better at masking damage that can't be removed by the polish, compared to polishing lighter colour paints where it is not as visible in normal lighting conditions (assuming you do not want to break out the compounds and machines as many of our home user customers are not inclined to do).

For anything other than badly swirled black paint that is not going to be machine corrected, we recommend Super Resin Polish. For ok, to good black we would recommend Super Resin Polish too.
