    sonax cut & finish ?

    bought the sonax to use on my car. but now I'm thinking of trying it on my 2015 black ram truck. I can't seem to wash & dry this truck without getting swirls & spider webs. would like some opinions on using the sonax. I'm thinking maybe a white pad with my PC 7424 ? I'm not sure how aggressive the cut & finish is. I know the ram paint & clear is on the soft side. anyone here use it for what I'm suggesting ? I bought the cut & finish for my repainted car(to get rid of holograms). thanks

    Test spot it and check out the results. It's a good product.

    just finished using sonax cut & finish & the results were great. I wasn't trying to get out every single scratch, but dam near did. the white pad worked out well. I was really impressed with gloss using this product, what a shine. I was always a big fan of HD speed but this might be my new favorite. thanks

    Is this a compound only?

    Glad to hear that . It works very well and produces great results with various pad combinations.

    It's a 1 step compounding polish.

    I think so ? here's a couple of quote's.
    SONAX Cut & Finish has a high abrasion level with an incredible gloss rating that truly puts it in a league of its own. SONAX Cut & Finish is the compound you’ve been searching for!

    What about Cut & Finish makes it a game changer? On a scale from 1-6, with 1 being the least and 6 being the most, SONAX Cut & Finish is rated at 5 for cut and 5 for gloss. Using the same scale, a conventional compound with a cut of 5 would have a rating of 1 for gloss!

    I did top it off with some wax. when I use HD speed I don't normally top it off unless I've got time. I don't think I'll be using sonax all the time, but I really like it. my thinking is the truck is 2 years old now & I still want to have some clear coat & paint left in the coming years. it's tough to just wash a black vehicle & make it look great. you always need to touch it up with something. jmo

    If it's only a compound---then should be followed up with a polish.

    If I understand this right---a very good compound that looks LSP ready will start to look so and so after a couple of weeks once the sun, heat and weather takes its toll on the paint.

    '' If it's only a compound---then should be followed up with a polish''
    or do you mean wax or sealant ?

    Think of it like the UHS compounding polish. Cuts like a compound but finishes like a polish. Except no need for special pads like the UHS combo.

    Both great for production details where 1 step is all that is needed.


    Give cut & finish a try. They offer a small bottle.
