Meguiar's has completely changed the detailing landscape with the DA Microfiber Correction Compound that utilizes brand new polishing technology. This compound has the ability to remove swirls, oxidation, ultra fine scratches and more while finishing down extremely smooth in one step! Therefore you can restore your vehicle's paint to a brilliant finish in less time while using less energy. The system was designed to help detailers remove light to moderate surface imperfections, although it is capable of removing heavier defects. The key to this system is the synergy between the most critical components which are the pad, polish and buffer. It is highly recommended that you use the Meguiar's DA Microfiber Correction Compound with Meguiar's DA Microfiber Cutting Disc Buffing Pad and a dual action buffer like the Porter Cable 7424 XP. The entire system was designed around this specific combination of products, which is why it works so well. This special microfiber cutting disc buffing pad works the compound in extremely well and it gives you superb cutting power while leaving an optically clear and glossy surface. A rotary buffer should not be used as this system was designed for a Dual Action buffer like the Porter Cable 7424 XP. A dual action buffer helps you get great results with the safety that comes with these buffers versus rotary buffers. Meguiar's also highly recommends using their backing plates because they have a shorter loop on their model (Meguiar's Professional Backing Plate W67DA 5" or S6BP 6"). This helps reduce the amount of heat generated, which in turn preserves the life of the pad. Thoroughly prime the pad by spreading the compound all around it. Next apply about 2 - 4 small drops to the pad and move very slowly over a 2ft x 2ft area with light pressure at speed 4 - 5. Maximum speed is not required for these polishes unlike most polishes. When you are done hand remove the excess product with a clean microfiber towel and step back and admire the shine. The results are stunning and this product will quickly become a staple in the detailing community world wide! If desired follow up with the new Meguiar's DA Microfiber Finishing Wax to further polish and protect the surface in one step.
