At the heart of every rubbing and polishing compound is the powder therein that cuts the paint surface at the nanoscale when polishing. Most of the rubbing compounds available today to consumers for manual applications do not contain the appropriate powder for modern requirements. Often, this can have disastrous consequences for the car’s paintwork. Users who apply these compounds initially notice a remarkable gloss. This is partly due to the filling agents contained in these compounds. What they do not see, however, is what is happening to the paint below the polish. The coarse and hard powder mass cuts deep scratches into the paint, often also because the polishing cloth that is used is either too rough or unsuitable for the application. What is truly critical is that, as a result of the filler effect, even reputed, independent laboratories and testing institutes are blinded by the apparent gloss. Appearances are deceptive – in the truest sense of the expression.
For this reason, we have coined the terms visual and physical gloss. The visual gloss is what the observer sees immediately after applying the polish. This gloss, however, does not last and fades away due to repeated exposure of the paint (for instance, to rain, car washes, etc.). In other words, the paint’s protection is simply washed off, something that often happens faster than expected.
What remains under the paint’s protective layer is what we describe as the physical gloss – the real paint surface. A brilliant gloss, which is also long-lasting, can only emerge when no micro-scratches are present on the paint surface. All of our rubbing compounds and polishes which contain abrasive agents (powder) (S2 to S40) are based on state-of-the-art iPT -Technology. In other words, the powder removes the dirt from the worn paintwork and polishes out micro-imperfections without causing new ones.
