An abrasive car polish paste is a chemical that restores car paintwork. It removes the scratches and any oxidized paint to bring out the fresher one underneath. It also hides the marks and paint residues using a wool pad.
Car owners and car detailing shops need abrasive car polish to give cars a bright and neat look.
If you want to make your car polish paste, but you think that this product needs some specialized machinery, then the good news is, you need some readily available ingredients to make this product.
Why Abrasive paste necessary for car paint?
Air pollution, industrial decay, brake dust, and acid rain containing metal particles oxidize over time and cause rust. Basic car maintenance or even a thorough car wash will not completely remove these contaminants from the car’s surface. Additionally, an abrasive material and suitable car detailing tool from the list below works.
Clay bar A clay bar is an engineered resin compound that captures particles to adhere to the soil. It glides along the car’s paint to pick up contaminants. Then, it removes them from the surface of the car. Here are the steps: After washing and drying the car body, spray some parts of the car with clay lubricant. Slowly rubbing the clay bar back and forth across the wet area of the body. This way you will get the contaminants out of the paint. Once the clay bar slides freely, the paint is clean. Wipe the area with a microfiber towel and spray the clay lubricant again to remove clay residue. If the surface is smooth as glass, it’s done.
This process is repeated on the rest of the car’s body. Clay Bar is the very rarely applied as abrasive material used in a professional car detailing process. Clay bars can also be used to clean car windows.
Rub the mixture Abrasive compound or cutting compound is an abrasive material that grinds the surface of the car. Additionally it helps hide scratches or dents, restores the original car paint and acts as a new layer of topcoat. Here’s how it works: Before applying the abrasive mixture, wash the scratched areas with soap and water. Dry them with a cloth. Remove the scratches and faded spots until it reaches the surrounding paint layer. Use sandpaper soaked in a solution of soap and water for smooth wet sanding. Quickly spread a thin layer of compound over the sanded-down scratch. An orbital polisher with a wool pad performs the task of rubbing the abrasive surface. For example, a microfiber towel is an alternative tool to manually rubbing the compound. Additionally, both methods bring down scratches. However, microfiber towels are much safer for paint. This compound has different levels of grit that smooth out different depths of scratches within the paint.
Car polish After applying the rubbing compound, take another wool pad on an orbital polisher to polish the car’s surface and make it even, smooth and shiny. Additionally, car polishing smoothes the paint surface to a microscopic level. Polish is a wax-like substance that dries to a hard coating that can be polished to a glossy finish. It uses a fine abrasive grit as opposed to an abrasive compound. – polish will not remove scratches or paint defects (swirl marks, buffer tails, etc.it will remove the dull color of the car paint. Moreover, it will protect the surface from water, dust, minor scratches, or fingerprints.
