The Chemical Guys V36 Optical Grade Cutting Polish is an ultra refined cutting polish designed to remove imperfections and leave behind a great deal of clarity! V36 is water based and capable of removing 2000 - 2500 grit sanding marks, swirls, holograms, light scratches and other imperfections with ease. We recommend using a white pad on a buffer or by hand. With only a few passes per section you will be amazed at the optical clarity that is left behind. The high end formula does not include any oils, silicone or fillers, so you know the results you are seeing are truly there, nothing is covered or filled in! On some paint types you will not need to follow V36 up with another polishing step, however if you want to jewel or fine polish the paint even further, the V38 and a blue or black pad is highly recommended. If you have heavier imperfections, V34 is a great polish to use. If you are looking for a great one step polish to remove imperfections and finish down the paint great, the Chemical Guys V36 Optical Grade Cutting Polish is a great choice!
