Welcome back to the Proje’ blog! Last time out, we focused on polishing the metal parts of your car exterior with our brilliant Metal Polish. This time around, we’re going to look at paintwork and ceramic polishing.
There isn’t a product out there that can polish all surfaces in one. Metals are natural car parts, where paintwork is something that has been superficially applied, meaning it comes with its own challenges. The main one for auto detailers is that paint can not only be oxidized; it can also pick up defects which then turn into microscopic havens for dirt. This then means that you need a specialist product to remove that dirt and restore the shine that we all crave on our vehicles. We focused our efforts at Proje’ on coming up with a product that does exactly that, without asking for too much effort – or money – from you.
Revive Final Polish is the last piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting the perfect finish on your car. It removes minor defects without any fuss but also leaves a long-lasting glossy finish, so you and others really know that you’ve put in the hard work. This is a lighter-duty, glossier polish than our Leveling DA MF Polish, making it ideal for a final pass, or even as a quick fix before you take your car out on the open road.
Revive Final Polish has been scientifically engineered to produce a dust-free, swirl free, defect free, high gloss finish to any painted surface; clear coat, gel coat and even ceramic coated surfaces. Utilizing the latest micro-abrasive technology, this is the most effective and efficient way to remove light paint defects or as the last step in your polishing process. It’s s safe on fresh paint and soft clear coats leaving a mark-free finish on all paint colors.
Getting Serious With the Science
Let’s talk about micro-abrasion. This is where micron-sized particles mix with surrounding air and penetrate defects on your paintwork at high velocity, removing them quickly and safely. The combination of this and the no-dust formula we put into Revive Final Polish ensures that you achieve fantastic results instantly. Best of all, the clean-up process is as simple as a wipe with one of our microfiber towels – none of the long and taxing clean-ups that other products might leave you with.
How to Use Revive Final Polish
You only need to use four dime-sized dots of our polish at once, meaning that you get serious value for your $25.99. Go ahead and squirt them on to a clean microfiber pad, using a DA polisher, set to speed 2. Then, you’re going to start off with a small section – about 2ft x 2ft section. Gently apply the machine with the pad and product directly to the surface of your vehicle, making one full pass with the machine at speed 2. You don’t need to apply any pressure – this is a light pass across the surface. The beauty of using a DA machine is that it does all the hard work, so you don’t have to!
At this stage, it’s time to crank up the power a bit. Increase the machine speed to 4 and make go over the surface again, this time in a cross-hatch pattern to ensure full coverage and workability across the surface. Take your time and remember: you don’t need to press down. Unlike with other levelling products, you won’t get any dust kicking up, so you should start to see results as you work.
After you’ve made 3-4 cross hatch passes, wipe the panel with a clean microfiber towel and inspect the paint. You should be able to notice the difference; no oxidation marks, no swirls or stains, and a shinier, smoother surface.
Now you’ve done the whole job, it’s time to have a look over your handiwork! If there is any part of the surface that you feel needs an extra pass, go right ahead! There’s no danger to your car at all – you’ve got the freedom to be as meticulous as you like. That’s the beauty of our products – we like to let you choose how serious to get when you use them!
