    Thanks for explaining why white is harder than black. +1 Detailing Wisdom for me

    As far as i remember there was no paint pulled on to the buffing pads.

    If you don't see any color or pigment transferring to the face of your pads as you're doing any type of compounding or polishing work this means you're working on a clear coat finish and modern clear coats tend to be harder than single stage paints with the exception of single stage white paint.

    Of course, the hardness of clears is all over the board, there are soft clears, medium and hard clears. The point is, with clear coats, the hardness is all related to the resin itself. With single stage paints, its' about the resin PLUS the pigment that's added which will affect the softness or hardness of the resin.

    Make sense?

    I tel a story about how I worked with this guy on a Ferrari he painted and the clear he used was so hard he could not get his sanding marks out using the 3M system. He asked me to try using the Meguiar's system. Even finishing out at #3000 grit Nikken Finishing Papers neither of us could "safely" remove the sanding marks so he had to repaint the Ferrari.

    It was the above experience that taught me to always do a "Test Spot" when sanding down any car, that is sand just a section and then see what it's going to take to remove the sanding marks. You don't want to sand a customer's car down only to find out you can't remove the sanding marks so test first.

    Makes sense, but it's funny how buffing a clear coat is sometimes so hard, but putting scratches in it, is very easy.

    This characteristic is called,

    Scratch-Sensitive


    It can be hard to wrap your brain around but it is reality.
