    Cutting Compounds

    Cutting Compounds



    These are the Cutting Compounds I possess. There are better and improved products available. I have in a shopping cart Jescar cutting polish.

    I like M105, the heavy dusting is not favorable.

    My selection of polishes are old. I want a cutting polish that cuts well, has a long working time.

    I have microfiber cutting pads, foam and wool.

    My truck has scratches I want and need to correct. What is the majority consensus?

    Thank you for your input.

    Re: Cutting Compounds

    Like Mike Phillips always talks about, abrasive technology. I see you have 3D Speed which is a good product for an AIO. 3D One is a fabulous product which also has a long working time and no dusting. Dr. Beasley's NSP primers are also good for longer working times and no dusting. All that said, 3D ONE is a smart abrasive that can be used as a compound or a polish depending on the pad you use with it.

    If you want a three step system - Dr. Beasley's NSP series

    IF you want to just add one product - 3D One

    Re: Cutting Compounds

    What tool are you using?

    Da compounds - Menzerna 400 & Sonax Cutmax

    Rotary compounds - 3D ACA 500 & 3M Perfect it 1

    A lot of area in between also depending on paint hardness and amount of correction needed.

    Example.... On reasonably hard paint, a microfiber pad (agressive) paired with something like Menzerna 2500 may get ya were ya need to be in one shot.

    How aggressive do you want to be? What is your budget? Do you expect to be taking out scratches? Have you done a test spot on your vehicle to see if the paint is hard or soft? There are a load of questions to be answered to select just a dedicated compound or polish and pad. NSP150 is very aggressive, NSP95 is a medium abrasive, and NSP45 is a soft abrasive. 3D One is a great all-purpose compound that is a "smart abrasive" and can be used as a compound or polish.

    If you are going to go straight for cutting only NSP150 or 3D ONE.

    You need to do a test spot with a pad and product. Start with the least aggressive polish and pad you have. Don't dive head-first in to the most aggressive thing you have on hand. You can easily create more work for yourself.
